I am writing a book about my childhood and I realized that I didn't have a lot of pictures of me when I was little. It just so happened that my mother is here from Washington visiting and brought a whole suitcase full of pictures of me as a child! I've been like a kid in a candy shop looking through all of them and scanning them into my computer. I'm going to put a few on my blog just for fun--i couldn't figure out how to put them in order of age, oh well, next time! :0)

Yeay, I figured out how to change my background!

I am so silly, I have been admiring everyone's backgrounds on their blogs and thinking how I would like to change my backbround but never had the time or took the time to figure it out. Steffanie said she would show me because it took a couple of seconds to do so I was hopeful that if I had a couple of minutes I could figure it out. Duh, nope- wasn't happenin'. Well, I accidentally figured it out and I'm so proud of myself but because of my excitement and haste, I lost all of the page elements i worked so hard to put on there ( blogs I like to visit, my kids, family picture, etc...) Oh well, we live and we learn and I am just excited that i figured out how to do a new background :0)

The Hinckley Challenge...

This is an email I just received that I think will be a very worthwhile achievement and goal: I am going to chart my progress and I'm excited to do it in honor of our dear Prophet Gordon B. Hinckley.

"As most of you know, our beloved prophet, Gordon B. Hinckley passed away at the age of 97. I was thinking of how I could honor his legacy and I came up with an idea. My friend and I have created a challenge for those willing to accept it: Read the Book of Mormon in 97 days. We are trying to get everyone to start on the same day. Here are the details:
Go to and create an account (free, of course).
On Feb 4, 2008 (the Monday following the funeral) have an FHE lesson on the Book of Mormon and begin your reading.
Each day you read, record what page number you are on by going to
We would like this challenge to be heard all around the world! Please forward this message to everyone you know. We would love to see over 1 million pages of the Book of Mormon read by the time this challenge has ended.
We are going to spread this throughout the news media (TV and radio) and we've already contacted Fox news, KSL, CBS, and ABC. But we cannot get the word out to everyone without your help! Please forward this on to EVERYONE in your address book. Time is of the essence!! This will be the one forwarded message that everyone will be happy to get :).
--Join by going here
