Ramblin Man "death"

I had a few things I needed to get off my chest, so here it is.
My aunt Libby has been fighting hard with cancer the past few months and it looks like she soon will lose. Her family is moving her back home so she can die in her own house, which is how I want to go as well, in my bed beside my wife and with family and friends. Death to me has always been bitter-sweet, I know we will miss those who have passed, but I feel a sense of joy knowing that they have made one more step in their eternal progression. My mom also called on Tuesday to say one of my buds that I grew up with had lost his mom to a heart attack, she was only 58. This is on top of finding out that another friend growing up lost his dad on the first, he was my little league baseball coach for four years, he was only 54. I don't share this with you to get you down, but rather I am always grateful for the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the knowledge of the Priesthood and gifts it affords us as faithful members of Gods' church. I know as we close our eyes in death we open them again to even greater things which we can't understand fully while in our probation. I know God lives, I know Jesus Christ, His Son, died for me so that I might, through my faithfulness, return and live with them again. Christ knows us and loves us and has endured all things that he might know how calm us in the storms and how comfort us when in sorrow and pain(Alma 7: 10-13) The Church is TRUE, no matter what comes and what things we have to face, the Church is TRUE! Brother Joseph was and is a true prophet of God and ushered in the greatest time in the history of the world, and we have so much to be thankful for. His mission gave us the most important teachings of our time and he sealed his mission with his blood and I am grateful to know him. Dena I love you with all my heart and "more than words", no matter how many are uttered or written! I would happily lay down my life to know that you and the kids were safe and secure.
I love you, I love you, I love you!!!!!! I'm so thankful for family and friends that I can love and love me back, even with all my problems. God bless you all and keep you!!!!!! May His grace shine upon you in all you do. It's TRUE, It's TRUE, IT'S ALL TRUE!!!!!!!!

The Ramblin Man

p.s. thanks, and you know who you are, for the super sweet gift card!

Game day goodies.

On sat. we decided to make some goodies for the game.(Carolina lost btw!!!Don't get me started!) So here is some of the things we had:

Spinach artichoke dip with bagel crisps. Yummy homemade bread for sandwiches.

Bean dip salsa with chips. It ain't a party without the heavenly elixir of the gods.Strawberry Sunny D.=)

Do you like barbecue flavor or spicy? Yumm, yumm!
So the game really sucked but at least the food didn't!

I must be a jinx. After Carolina lost I thought OK I will pull for the giants. Well they lost today! I give up!

The Big 33!

At the end of this month Nathan will be 33. Being the sweet and wonderful wife that I am, I am already giving him presents. Here he his with the latest....(if you can't tell they are spring form pans to make cheesecake.)

"Cheesecake as big as your head!"

"My sweet pans....I love you."

Nathan is trying out different flavors. Let me tell you folks it is some good stuff! Best present ever! Don't be surprised if the cheesecake fairy shows up on your doorstep.=)

Alright stop.....cookie time!

Last wed. me and the "boys" got to hang out, so we decided to make some sugar cookies. Let me tell you these boys had me cracking up! Here are some of the pictures I took, I just wish they were videos .

All the boys having a good time.

Here is Ethan, just happy go lucky.
Nate was "sick" this day...can't you tell.
Good job Noah...ummm I think you are supposed to cut out the cookie, not mold the cookie

Notice the flour on Tanner's head. At one point he was using it to flatten out his dough.=)
When I saw Lucas' cookie I thought he had made his hand print, but come to find out he had used the holes in the spatula. Very clever.=)

Here's to a new year!

I hate to say it, but I am kind of glad the tree is down. We took it down yesterday. Nathan keep saying how sad he was but I was just happy getting some help cleaning. I kind of go into spring cleaning mode after we take down the Christmas decor. You know start rearranging things, trying this over here, or that over there.So far I have the living room and the kitchen almost done.(my kitchen floor has white grout, need I say more.) Thankfully Nathan cleans the ceiling fans. That is just one job I hate! So today it is on to laundry!Ughhh! I hate laundry! Wish me luck!I will take pics and keep ya updated!=)

Blast from the past

and all things denotes there is a God....
