Ok, so I don't have as much time as I'd like to update our family blog. But I thought I'd post some of our newer pictures and write a little about what we're up to.

Life is good! The kids are healthy and happy and I LOVE being a mom. They keep me busy and I find there is alway so much to do.
I got involved in a home-based business called Liv International a few months ago. It's a health and wellness company and I'm an independent distributor for their products. I LOVE THEM! I haven't been at this weight in almost 8 years, nor have I EVER felt healthier. I'm sleeping at night, I have TONS of energy, I've lost all my excess weight and I'm so grateful I found this company and it's products. They contiually de-tox your body (you'd be surprised at how much you need that), balance your PH, and give you huge amounts of minerals as well as many, many more benefits. And the big important factor for me is that this is just pure nutrition. No stimulants, no caffeine, no ariticial sugars! It's the most healthy prodct I've ever found and it's effects are amazing. I've watched so many of my friends and family lose weight and get healthy on these products and I really believe in them. Go to my website for my info if you're interested.

Aside from that business, I'm currently working on a project very close to my heart. I'm on the commitee to raise funds for a local family here in Rigby. This little family has two adorable kids. Benson is 4 and Clair is 2. Both have an extremely rare genetic disease called Primary Hyperoxaluria. To make a long story short, they both need liver and kidney transplants to save their lives. Please check out their blog to read their story and donate to the cause. Go to

We are having a benefit concert to raise money for the transplants. Marvin Goldstein will be preforming, as well some other wonderful artists. The tenative date for the concert is New Years Eve. Please come enjoy an evening of beautiful music and help save these children. More info in later updates. Call me if you'd like to donate or have questions. 745-8099

Sea World and Mexico

We went to Sea World San Diego and then on a cruise to Mexico last week. We had a great time. The girls LOVED Sea World. We only had about 5 hours there but I'm sure they would have been happy with 50. My parents, brothers and sisters and all of their kids were there and it was so fun. Then we met up with the entire Ferguson clan for a cruise to Mexico. It was for our Ferguson family reunion. There were 75 of us on the boat! The weather was fairly cold so we didn't do much swimming, but we had fun exploring the huge boat, eating way too much food, and playing with cousins. One of my favorite nights on the cruise was the hypnotist show. Hilarious! We stopped in Cabo San Lucas for an awesome day on the beach and then in Ensenada for some sight seeing and shopping. Mexico was great.
We've been off the boat for about 3 days and I still feel the rocking and swaying. It's driving me crazy. But we had a great time and loved seeing everybody. What a fun Thanksgiving!

Halloween fun!

The kids had tons of fun on Halloween. Sheridyn, Savannah, and I dressed up as witches and baby Katelyn was a princess. We took the kids to "Boo at the Zoo!" The zoo goes all out with hundred of pumpkins, lights, decorations, etc. to create a fun atmosphere and they also have craft tables, haunted houses, and treat stations. We met most of their cousins there and had a great time. We also visited grandparents to show them our costumes, of course! I'm not a big fan of all that candy but they really didn't get much this year. It was perfect! The girls are already excited for next Halloween.
And Jared and I had a great time at our annual adults-only-dress-up party. I was an Egyptian princess and you won't believe how Jared dressed up. The crazy man shaved the top half of his head totally bald and then colored the rest of it grey and went as an old man. It looked so real. I'd laugh every time I saw him. I tried to talk him into saving it for a week so he could re-create the look for our ward Halloween party and Halloween day, but no luck. He is so much fun and loves to dress up for this kind of stuff. Enjoy the pics.

Sharp hunters!

So the big news around here is that I shot my first buck! I'm sure my parents never thought they would see the day. I've gone hunting a few times before with Jared, but only for small stuff like porqupines, sage hen, etc. I have to say that I wondered if I would feel bad if I shot a deer, but I didn't. It was awesome! Of course, the meat we get from hunting is what feeds our family all year. We didn't have enough last year so it'll be great to have the freezer totally stocked.

Jared, of course, got a great buck. He also got a doe tag this year and an elk and deer tag in Montana. We should have plenty of meat for our family and some to share!
Update: Jared got a great buck in Montana. The first picture is of the newest buck. Hopefully he'll get an elk in the next few weeks as well.
