A splendid Sunday

We had a great Sabbath day. First Boyce just looked so cute I had to get some pictures of him in his new outfit Grandma Mac bought for him. Second we had our nature appreciation in the Provo Canyon. When we were at our house it was in the 80s and sunny, but when we got up in the canyon to take pictures of the fall leaves it was in the 60s and pouring rain. It was so crazy, but still beautiful so we got some rainy fall pictures.

Vegas Trip

We had a goo d time Vegas. Most of it was work, but we did play a little. My mom came and watched Boyce so we could go see the Phantom and have a nice date. It was incredible. I love it! We also got to spend a little time in the pool one day, and even did a little shopping with my mom. The weather was amazing, but we aren't sure if that is where we are going to be moving to. We will let you know as soon as we know.

Crazy Town

Do you want to hear the latest story in our crazy life?! We were so excited to be back to Provo and into a nice little house with a yard. We were finally in a ward and we were looking forward to being here just for the fall for Mark to finish his bachelors and then probably off to Vegas. Well, Crazy Provo Town just decided they wanted to kick out all the renters in homes in the neighborhood we live in. You can get around this insane new law if the owners live in the home. This is putting our landlords in a tough place and in response they just put our house up for sale. Two things could happen to us; In the time the houses is on the market the city of Provo could kick us out or fine our Landlords (who are so kind and doing everything they can for us) or something will buy the home and move in up or downstairs and rent the other part to us. Sadly to say we have started to look for places to rent for 3 months, because we don't know what is going to happen. And I'll tell you what, it's hard to find a place where someone will give you that short of a lease. Plus I don't want to move again, just to move again!! This is a really crazy and stressful time for us. I am trying to be tough but I just want to be a baby about the entire thing. I know this will work out, we will just keep praying and hoping that someday we can live in a nice place where we can stay put for a while. We will keep you posted.

6 Months

We took Boyce's 6 month pictures in Coeur d'Alene while visiting my family. I think they turned out great, but of course they would because he is soo cute.

We are back in the game!

We had a great rest of our trip. We spent some time with my mom & dad in Spokane and even though it was cold and rainy the entire time we had a good time. Jada (my sister in-law) and her kids came and hung out with us then we all went to the Tri-cities to see Nate (my bro) & Amy and their family. It was beautiful there and we had so much fun at their new home and riding bikes on the trail. Then we went back to Spokane for some more quality time with my parents. Then on our way home we saw our friends Brodie & Ashley that live in Mossoula. Then we spent some time in Fairmont hot springs with some of Mark's family. We swam and hung out. Then Monday there was going to be some golfing but we woke up to 2 inches of snow!! We had such a fun time seeing our friends and family and now it's back to real life, which is wonderful too.
