I created this blog when my sweet little girl, Kristen, was diagnosed with cancer, for the third time. After fighting for almost 3 years Kristen was called home to that same God who gave her life. One of my favorite quotes comes from Neal A. Maxwell- "Those who "plow in hope" not only understand the law of the harvest but they also understand what growing seasons are all about. True, those with genuine hope may see their proximate circumstances shaken like a kaleidoscope at times, yet with the "Eye of faith" they still see divine design." Kristen blessed lives and continues to do so. Her light continues to shine. As for me, I continue to "plow in hope" knowing well that Kristen is mine for eternity. Families can be together forever!

50's party

Each year at the lake Richard's sisters plan a themed party at the beach.
This year the theme was 50's Diner.
Not many of us dressed up this year but it was still tons of fun.
There is just something about partying at the beach.
There is music coming from one of the boats and everyone pitches in
and brings a side dish.

Carrie and Becky are the party planners and they are always dressed up so cute.

Rodney was the cook, we had hamburgers, homemade fries and root beer floats.

Ty and grandpa

“We should not need a hurricane or other crisis to remind us of what matters most. 
The gospel and the Lord’s plan of happiness and salvation should remind us.
 What matters most is what lasts longest, and our families are for eternity.”

What a fun party! Doing anything at the beach is fun! I read somewhere that 5 years from now, the kids in high school will have an 'Oldies' party and dress up like they did in 2000. :)
