Socialism in America

I know when other people post youtube videos on their blogs I hardly ever watch them. I hope you take a minute and actually watch the two videos below. They contain words from a couple of the Prophets of our church and are really interesting to hear.

This first one has words from President Monson, President Hinkley and President Benson....

This second one is a clip from Radio Talk show host Glenn Beck. He is a convert to the LDS church and is very interesting to listen to. He has the 3rd most listened to radio show in the nation and a very popular news show on Fox News. In this clip he plays some audio from President Ezra Taft Benson that talks about socialism in America.....

Vegas Vacation cont...

While we were in Vegas we got the chance to spend the evening with Josh's aunt and uncle. It was great meeting them and we all had a fun time! We even got to eat dinner at my favorite place EVER! CAFE RIO!! mmmmm it was sooooo yummy!Here are a couple more random pictures from our trip....

While we were gone we had some of our neighbors taking care of the dogs for us.....
This is some of what we came home to at 11pm on Sunday night

These pictures don't do justice to the awful mess that was made in our house!

We walked in the door and were greeted by Torque, our puppy that HAS to be locked up when nobody is there watching him. Apparently they had forgotten to lock him up (But they had locked Bentley up, and she is the one that can be out and be okay) and they had also locked the doggy door so the puppy was locked INSIDE the house for who knows how long. *sigh*

It took us about an hour to get it all cleaned up, it had seriously looked like a tornado had gone through our front room and living room, pooping and peeing all along it's path. :P
I guess we can say there is a silver lining... we had been thinking about changing up our decorations, and Torque had done us the favor of pulling them down and eating the ones he thought we didn't need anymore.

Looks like we need to find some new dog sitters, anyone interested?? lol

Halloween Night/Vegas Vacation

We went to Las Vegas for Halloween weekend with our friends Billy & Kristen. We wanted to dress up and we came up with the idea to go as the The Flintstones.....(Fred & Wilma)

(They were Pebbles & BamBam)

Kirsten & I with the Stratosphere in the back

The men in the elevator.... hehe

We walked around the strip and inside some casinos (It was coooold outside) We kept getting stopped by people that wanted to take pictures of us, or get in a picture with us. At first we thought it was pretty funny, but by the end of the night it was getting a little old ;)

We had a good time, but I personally think Vegas is a little over-rated.

Today marks the one year mark from when we moved into our house in Maricopa! That year has FLOWN by! I can't believe we've been here a year already......

I Love our house and am so glad that we were able to get it and make it our own. It looks different from back when we moved in (the pics above are from a year ago, and then now)

As part of our celebration we bought a new patio set for our back yard. (okay so it wasn't to "celebrate", but we really needed/wanted one) :)

I'm excited for the years to come in this house! :):)
