Here we go...

I have resisted blogging for a very long time. However, I have given in! I have never been good at journaling so maybe this will force me to keep a better record of our family happenings!

We have lived in Hurricane for about 5 1/2 years and I must say that I find myself enjoying life here considerably more than I thought possible. We love the weather, Mike's job, our home, and our great friends. I am very thankful that Heavenly Father knew that Hurricane would be a great fit for our family.

Christmas just passed and I must say that it was wonderful. Not because of the presents, but because of the time we were able to spend with family. We spent some time with both of our families this year. After hosting Thanksgiving dinner at our house this year, it was wonderful to be "the guests." While we were at my parent's house we found out that my twin brother, Kirk, is expecting their first baby! We are all so excited for them because we know that they will be incredible parents!

I think it has snowed around 3 times now! Not all of them were big storms, but we rarely see snow so we get excited over the little flurries! We can't believe it...I don't remember a December like this one. The kids have had a lot of fun building snowmen and they even made a snow turtle.

I really am hesitant to write much because I have never been too keen on my ability to express the way I feel when I write. So, for now...this will do.


  1. Kerry, look at you, you are quite the little blogger. Your blog is darling. Watch out this stuff can get addicting..

  2. Kerry...excellent work on the blog! See it's not so bad right? CURIOUS.......DATING MACHINE!!!!

  3. Yay! Way to join the blogging world. I usually use for my backgrounds. But it looks like the websites you found are cute too! I miss you! Love u

  4. Thanks for letting us know you have a blog. We miss you guys a ton. We are thinking about coming your way in March sometime. We'll have to call you with the details. We have a serious case of spring fever. It was -8 this morning. I think it is going to be a long winter so we told Mr. Sun he has a little over a month to warm up your part of the world for us so we can defrost ourselves a little.
