Fall Time!!!

Fall is by far my favorite time of the year! I love all the colours, the smells, everything! I took these photos in a park while waiting for a bride. I also love it when the ground is covered in fall leaves. The lighting for outdoor portraits always seems so perfect as well.

The newest addition to our family!

Jory and I decided to get a kitten a few weeks ago when Snuff told us that her cat had kittens. Why did we decide to do that?! I have NO idea!! She is cute and we love her for sure. She is just driving me CRAZY! She likes to sleep in our bed. If we don't let her, she cries at our door until we let her in. In the middle of the night, she put her face about 2 inch's from mine, and will try tapping me with her paw. Anyone that knows me real well, knows this doesn't go over well with me while I'm trying to sleep! I don't know if she's trying to wake me up so I'll play with her or what, but I am so soo sooo tired!! We couldn't think of a name for her, so we just call her Kitty. I think she likes it cuz she comes running every time.

I love this picture! We brought the dogs in so they could all get used to each other and she was a little scared at first and started to hiss and she tried to smack Diego! LOL... Look closely at her face! The dogs don't mind her at all.

For Snuff!

My sister called me one evening while it was snowing up in the mountains and asked if I would take a picture for her. She had asked me a few times to do this, but I never got around to it until now! This is for you Snuffy! I love you.

A great moment During General Conference!

After President Hinckley finished with the sustaining of the officers of the church during the Saturday morning session, Elder Eyring had moved into his new seat on the stand. Unfortunately, they didn't show this on TV, but when President Hinckley turned around, he stood there for a moment looking at Elder Eyring (probably with the little twinkle in his eye), then picked up his cane and 'knighted' him on his shoulder and head. Truly one of the funniest things I've ever seen him do.

Here's the picture from it. I love how Elder Eyring looks just like a little boy....

A Bishop's Business Card

Today has been a hard day for me. I don't even know why. Do you ever have those days where you just wake up in a bad mood? I'm having one of those days today. I hate my Jetta, I hate my Art History class, and I'm dreading the emotions that my personal autobiography I have to write for English is going to bring out. ALSO...I'm still very upset that Denny from Grey's Anatomy died, as did Sara on Prison Break! Call me crazy, call me a freak, I don't care-it's how I FEEL! All I want to do is stay home and enjoy the coziness of our home. Oh-and stay in my flannel P.J.'s instead of dress up girly clothes I have to wear for work! Anyways, so despite my bad day, I figured that I would post something I thought was funny so that I could lift my own spirits!

A Bishop was visiting in the home of two Ward members, a newlywed couple. At the garden apartment where they lived it was obvious from the giggling inside that someone was at home, but no answer came to his repeated knocks, he even called out to let them know it was he at the door. Everything had gone silent. Then he took out a business card and wrote "Revelation 3:20" on the back of it and stuck it in the door.

The following Sunday his card was placed in one of the tithing envelopes and given to one of his councilors who in turn returned it to the Bishop. Added to the card was this cryptic message, "Genesis 3:10."

Reaching for his Bible to check out the citation, he broke up in gales of laughter.

Revelation 3:20 begins "Behold, I stand at the door and knock."

Genesis 3:10 reads, "I heard your voice in the garden and I was afraid for I was naked."

My new calling...

Yesterday I was called to be the Laural's advisor in my ward. I am so excited about this calling! I used to work with the Y.W. when I was like 21 and it was by far my favorite calling. So I am very excited and grateful for the opportunity to serve the girls again. This will also be a great personal growing experience for me, one that I've been in need of for a while. My best friend Jeanie is in Y.W. as well in the other ward, so we're both thrilled to get to go to girl's camp together this next year! =) Jory seemed pretty excited that he may be joining us at girl's camp. I think that he is happy to go camping at any chance he can get. Knowing him, he'll be teaching the girls to fish! LOL... Jory is still the Cub Scout Master in our ward and I am still his Assistant. I don't think they will ever release him from that calling! Lol... They love him too much and he does a great job with the boys!
