Fishin with the Puppies

So Halle and Diego are the only ones that will willingly go fishing with Jory. Course, they think they are going to get to eat a fishie. Jory sets his camera up on a tri pod in the river and films himself. He thinks it's the greatest!

I'll Stand by You

I love this new song that Carrie Underwood sings. The words make me think of Jory and all that we've been through together. So this is for him! =)

Oh why you look so sad
The tears are in your eyes
Come on and come to me now
Don’t be ashamed to cry
Let me see you through
Cause I’ve seen the dark side too
When the night falls on you
You don't know what to do
Nothing you confess
Could make me love you less
I’ll stand by you

I’ll stand by you
Won’t let nobody hurt you
I’ll stand by you

So if you're mad get mad
Don’t hold it all inside
Come on and talk to me now
Hey, what you got to hide
I get angry too
Well I’m a lot like you
When you're standing at the crossroads
And don't know which path to choose
Let me come along
Cause even if you're wrong
I’ll stand by you

I’ll stand by you
Won’t let nobody hurt you
I’ll stand by you
Take me in into you darkest hour
And I’ll never desert you
I’ll stand by you
And when, when the night falls on you, baby
You feeling all alone
You won't be on your own
I’ll stand by you

I’ll stand by you
Won’t let nobody hurt you
I’ll stand by you
Take me in into you darkest hour
And I’ll never desert you
I’ll stand by you
Oh I’ll stand by you
I’ll stand by you

In Loving Memory...

On Aug.22,2007 Thern Ward passed away. Although this was a very sad occasion for all of us, there is so much good that will be remembered of him. Grandpa Thern was such a sweet man and loved us all. His kind heart was known by all. He loved little children and esp loved giving kisses to babies. I know he still lives today and is hopefully playing with our babies until it is their time to come to us. Even though he is gone, his legacy still lives on through his grandson Jory and his son Base. Both are amazing men and I see a lot of Grandpa Thern in both of them.
I heard this quote once and since Grandpa's passing, I was all of a sudden reminded of it. "When you were born, you cried, and your family and friends rejoiced. Continue to live your life in such a manner that when you die, your family and friends cry, and you rejoice." I am so grateful for the loving atonement that the Savior provided for us so that we can live with him again. We love you Grandpa Thern!

Krista-My Childhood Friend



So this is one of my best friends that I grew up with in Canada. She was the punk/skater and I was the little casual preppy. We didn't have a lot in common, but we sure loved each other! Still do. Anyways, so now Krista is a dance director at Lone Peak High School and a few weeks ago I did pictures for the Dance Team. I took this picture of her and think it's one of the most gorgeous pictures of her! I love it. So this post is dedicated to my sweet friend Krista!
