I haven't been to Disneyland for 6 years but this past November, we went with Paul, April, Lily and Brooklyn. It was so much fun. I didn't think I was up for a long road trip but airfare is just too high. We left following my last parent teacher conference and drove through the night, crazy for a couple of old people, but we made it with time to spare. We had time to clean up at the hotel and then make the gates at opening. It was a beautiful day and just perfect for fun. Lily and Brooklyn were so excited.Space Mountain, Matterhorn, California Adventure, fireworks, water shows, Downtown Disney,and princesses. It was just perfect. Can't tell how excited Lily and Brooklyn were.

I am not exactly the best at this blogging thing but I love reading everyone else's. This year has been a year of changes. Doug lost his job in February,I started a second job in March, Mike found a job in September. Grandpa Teran died in October, Alex and Rachel totaled their car in December, and Doug received a call to serve as an ordinance worker in the Draper Temple. Sometimes you wonder when the hole will stop getting bigger and the light will appear again. Despite the struggles, our table has never been empty, we are warm and surrounded by many good friends and family. We have been lifted and supported and when it is all done for this year, I can truly say, we have been blessed and it has been a good year. Hope 2010 brings you joy and happiness.
"There is a tendency to think of change as the enemy. Many of us are suspect of change and will often fight and resist it before we have even discovered what the actual effects will be. When change is thought through carefully, it can produce the most rewarding and profound experiences in life." Marvin J. Ashton

I know that we aren't supposed to love our "stuff" but the memories asociated with some stuff make it hard to part with. Foolish, you say. Yes, and true, but I can't help feel sadness as I watched the truck loaded up and taken away. It was a sentimental moment. This was dad's truck. We purchased it from mom with the agreement that we would tow her fifth wheel trailer. Several trips with mom to St. George and up camping. Then we have our own memories of our camper and time spent with family in our beautiful mountains. Then there are many times we moved people or materials for projects and others borrowed it. Despite the problems, we had with the truck, it took us many places and rescued us and brought us many good times. It will be missed. Okay, this sounds like someone died!
