Christmas 2009

      Well Christmas 2009 is over. It seems to get so stressful just before, that when it's finally over , you can sit back and just relax! The house is a little messy with the gifts, but that's ok. The families big gift we received from Santa this year was the Wii Sport. Lot's of fun and a great activity to play with the whole family! I didn't know I was so good at bowling! Much better on the Wii then in real life! Ha!

This year we had our future daughter in -law Karissa over for Christmas Eve. It was great having her! My brother Jorge was also here. He makes us laugh. Ha!

Getting To Know You

Well this should be interesting, starting a blog. I hope it will be for the readers. I plan on using this as a way to share fun moments with my family, friends, and anyone who is just wanting to get to know me and my family. Like the song goes..."Getting to know you, getting to know all about you"

Steve and I met at a church dance, it was love at first sight. We got married 4 months later on May 21st 1983 then sealed at the Washington DC Temple of The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-Day Saints a year latter in June of 1984. We were both converts to the church, but at different times, both before we met. I became Mormon in 1976, Steve did in 1980. Our families are not members  of the LDS church.
