Team Captain-RVP Party at the Neil House

Thumbs up! Steve gives his approval of the new house.

How's the food Emily?

Jolene raises her soda for a toast! We work with such cute people.

Steven & Cody sabotage our picture! Crazy guys.

Ken, Lance, Steve & Cody doing what guys do best...sports anyone?
What a beautiful view from the deck. Steven didn't end up takin' a dip in his speedo. Sorry Lexee!

Roasting marshmallows at the fire pit! What's going on Cody?
Gary Kornegay all bundled up. He says that "brothers" shouldn't be in cold weather without a blanket.
How cute and cuddly! He had no clue that I had zoomed in!
Brandon, Lexee, & Our Visitors From Cali! Outdoor Heaters...what a great idea!
Lance & Jolene's baby boy...all tuckered out!

Samantha was one sleepy child after a night at the sitter's.

This is pretty much how all of us felt at the end of the night! I'm sure that Brandon & Lexee were relieved to have all of us leave at 2:30 a.m. so that they could get some sleep. Winners come early and stay late though, right?

Thanks Brandon & Lexee for the amazing food, folks, and fun! We had a blast! Can't wait until the next one.


Why the Long Gap in Posts?

Good question! Let me tell you...Samantha, my friend Tine, and I got in an accident on I-15 a couple of weeks back. Some guy in a big white Dodge truck pulling a trailer decided to ram into the back of us, because he couldn't stop fast enough in heavy traffic. Don't worry we are fine, minus a little whiplash and $3000 worth of damage to the Lexus. Anyway...we took the car to Larry H. Miller in Salt Lake to have it fixed and forgot to take our camera out of the glove compartment. Yes, you guessed it! When we went to pick the car up, the camera was gone. Someone stole it from us! They told us that we could do nothing because we signed a release when we dropped the car off that said they weren't responsible for anything that was lost or stolen from the car. We forgot that the camera was in there, so it's our own fault. I went yesterday and found the same camera for about $75 cheaper on a Christmas sale, so we bought the same awesome camera FOR THE SECOND TIME IN THE PAST THREE MONTHS! More posts to follow...with pictures attached just as soon as I decide to put batteries in the camera and find a memory card to store more photos. :O) Fun stuff...but look at the bright side: we didn't die in the accident, noone was seriously injured, we got another camera, and the car is now fixed. I'll count my many blessings on all of those things.


Let The Good Times Roll!

We are so grateful for our business and for all of the people Heavenly Father has placed into our lives. We honestly can't picture where we would be without this great opportunity! We have learned so much! We feel so lucky and so blessed and are SO EXCITED about where we are going! Hard work pays off!


Carving Pumpkins with the Bishops

Last Sunday, for Chantiel's birthday, we went over to the Bishops' house to have a little pre-birthday/Halloween get-together! It was a ton of fun. Chantiel & Jeff had pizza and queso with chips ready and we ate and ate and ate! We found a couple of cool pumpkin patterns and let the boys go at it! Thanks for the invite guys! We can't wait until we can get together again!

Oh! So Cute!

I forgot how fast time goes by when life is busy! I'm not complaining though. I have been so blessed to have been given such a wonderful business opportunity that keeps me busy and always working to get better. I love being able to have my little sidekick with me all day every day as I build my business. One day we were headed back home from being out and about and we decided to stop at the Mt. Timpanogos Temple and snap a couple pics. Look...there really are angels on earth. How funny...I just told Samantha to come and look at this picture and she came over to the computer, put her hand over her mouth and said, "Oh! Sooo...cute! Samantha cute!" She must get her humility from her father!
Notice how she pulled the flower all of the way from the root!


Our Little Dove Chocolate Snatcher

So at Grandma's birthday party last Sunday, they had a table set up with all types of bread desserts, dove chocolates, hot cider, etc. Well...check out this little chocolate snatcher. Samantha walked up to the table and looked around to make sure nobody was watching. She then grabbed a dove chocolate and stuffed it in her pocket. She walked in a circle, looked around to make sure nobody was looking again and did the same thing...over and over and over again! It was hilarious! We were all watching her, but she didn't know it. It didn't happen just a few times. When we got home that night, I told Steve that Samantha had a present for him in her pockets. He reached into her pockets and started pulling out melted dove chocolates. What was the final tally? She had given one away to Uncle Kent, one to Aunt Sue, eaten six or seven and still had twelve melted chocolates that Daddy pulled out! It was so funny! I guess she is learning at an early age that chocolate is a girl's best friend.

Grandma's 80th Birthday Party

Here are some great photos from Grandma Peery's 80th Birthday Party courtesy of Aunt Joan! Thanks for helping me get these on our blog! It was such a special day and time to be with Grandma & Grandpa, as well as the rest of the family. Only time moves on to the next scene, memories remain a part of the heart forever.
Grandma had been talking about how she wished I would've recorded the song I sang at my mission homecoming cause she loved it so much. I surprised her by singing and recording ten hymns/songs for her in Spanish. It was such a special gift. We both had tears in our eyes as we listened to it! I am so grateful for such an amazing Grandma. I love her to pieces!

Princess Leah

My mom & me. Dad says we look like Princess Leah.
Aren't I so grown-up?
You know, I still haven't figured out how to smile without squinting one eye!

Have I got you wrapped around my finger yet?

So each day when I get ready, I ask Samantha if she wants her hair done and she always says,"Samantha hair done too." When I ask her how she wants me to do it, she always says, "Samantha wear piggies!" or "Samantha wear bouncy balls!" (Meaning she wants her hair in messy buns.) It's hilarious! It's so much fun watching her learn to talk and the vocabulary she is picking up! If someone would've told me that children were such great entertainment, I don't think I would've believed them. Maybe we should consider having another one soon. :O)


Happy Happy Birthday! Can't believe I'm 27!

Yesterday Steven and I went and bought a new digital camera for my birthday today! Can you believe it? We finally broke down and bought a digital camera. We took our old film dependent camera to the company trip in San Francisco last month and realized...hey...it's really time to move on and leave the old school camera behind. 48 exposures and we were all done, but there was SO much more to take pictures of (and see) while we were there. Thanks Steven! We finally have a nice digital camera with 10 megapixels, 12x optimal zoom and a 2.7'' LCD screen. I love it! Here's a couple of pictures to put on display our amazing skills with the camera. Did any of you know that we really have twins? Samantha & Luci (fer). Little Luci is the one that is always digging in my purse. What a little devil!


My Hubby Messing Around

This is what happens when we leave our husbands ALONE for too long!

My New Calling

So...my new calling in church is to put together a photo directory for the ward and run around like a chicken with my head cut off trying to get in contact with families who will let me take a cheesy picture of them like this one! So far I have been told to "print the *%(^&# thing without me in it" and some of the comments I get from people are hilarious! It's a picture folks! Half of us look the same when we take the time to get ready as we do when we just wake up! Look at the camera, smile, and say cheese! No one will know if you got ready or not but you! Right?

Sleeping Beauties

Steven & Samantha were watching Meet the Robinsons tonight after we got home from grocery shopping and they both crashed! They are both snoring! Like daddy...like daughter! She is such a daddy's girl! Wonder what they're dreaming about? I need to get to bed too.


So Grateful

I was sitting here working and all of a sudden I had a minor breakdown. I must be hormonal or something because out of nowhere I started tearing up just from thinking about how grateful I am to have such an amazing life, an unbelievable husband and beautiful baby girl. God has blessed me with such an amazing life and I am so grateful that I am able to work from home through Primerica and enjoy every day with Samantha by my side. She has truly become my little sidekick and I love her so much! Thank you Cherie Bone for having the courage to talk to us about the business and helping us to make the decision that has changed our lives forever! We will always be grateful! :O)
