WOW its been a long time!!!!

It's hard to believe that September 2011 is the last time I blogged. I look at what was going on in my life back then and I can't help but think how so much has changed. My kids have grown up so much. We now live in Albuquerque NM. I truly miss the house that is photographed in some of those old pictures. I don't think I will ever get over leaving Payson, UT. Leaving our home we loved so much including the yard. Our wonderful neighborhood. Our wonderful Ward. All our family and friends and the great small town of Payson in general. Its hard to say if I will achieve that peace I felt in Payson ever again. We moved to ABQ for Ryan's job in August 2012 and of course are thankful for this great opportunity. Hayden is now 13 and still playing baseball and Zachary is 15 and playing football and wrestling for Volcano Vista High School. He is still waiting to take driving school to get his license. I get to stay home which some days I am grateful for and some days its hard. I miss my old job and co-workers in Payson tremendously. ABQ is very brown and very dry. The wind blows a lot but it can be beautiful and sunny on the perfect day. Not having to shovel or drive in the snow is a bonus here they say but I tend to disagree. When it snows those 2 days in the winter I always pray it lasts all day but its generally melted by noon. Thanksgiving in Albuquerque 2012
