It’s been quite a while.  I’m going to give a quick update on what’s been going on.

My dieting goal is not going so well, partly because of stupid Halloween, and I had a nice revelation to be a better mom and focus on things that really matter.  Like my family.  I really don’t want to go through life with regrets.  Right now, I feel like I could  do better.  So I’m going to focus on some more important things  than what size I am.  

FALL.  Our family has really enjoyed fall.  We’ve loved going on   bike rides and playing at the park.  The weather has been so beautiful.Abigail swingskids at park 2 10-23-2010 1-47-33 PM

HALLOWEEN!  was a blast.  The kids loved it.  We carved pumpkins and went trick or treating. Standard Halloween stuff.Halloween schoolHALLOWEEN 2010AbigailTHE LOOT

GABRIEL finished up his soccer season.  I was so impressed with him.  He hustled and never whined  .  He did a great job!!  Gabe Soccer


WORK has been great!  I had my first closing last week, and that feels great.  My client was very appreciative of my service and that makes me feel good. 

THANKSGIVING was a 4 day non-stop party.  We took no pictures at all.  We were too busy having fun.  Volleyball, basketball, racquetball, shopping at 4 am, eating, poker, more eating, golf, playing cards until 3 am, fun, fun, fun.  My whole family was in St George except Dave and Michelle.  It was a loud, exhausting, great time.

I was just called to be the Primary Secretary.  I am really excited.  It sounds like a perfect job for me.  Mark got called to be a primary teacher.  He is teaching Emma’s class and enjoys it.

I just got all my Christmas decorations up.  It is so fun to pull them out!  But I must say, they are very old (some I had when I was a kid), and our tree is on it’s last leg.  But even so, I love the feelings they bring.  I love this time to celebrate!  I tried to get the shopping done and out of the way this year so I can focus on the true meaning of Christmas.  I want my family to feel our Savior’s love this Christmas and celebrate him and the gift of the atonement He gives us.

thanx 4 the update, Sara. This is a bad time to focus on weight anyway. Enjoy the holidays - THEN pay the price. (it's worth it)
