This is my simple photo journal. I like to take pictures and once a month or more, I load them onto this blog so that we can remember some of our family highlights.



We have developed a very good habit of making caramel popcorn on Sunday nights.

Soft Caramel Corn

1 cube butter
1 cup Karo syrup
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
1 can sweetened condensed milk

Heat over stove for about 7 minutes, stirring constantly.
Pour over popcorn (remove the kernels before hand).
Spread out caramel corn on wax paper so it doesn't harden in a clump.

 We love having these cute sister missionaries serve in our ward.
Sister Kohler and Sister Lloyd fit right in with our craziness.
This is the time they gave us a FHE lesson
and we invited the Shills and the cute Arenessa family over to make pizzas.

This was the 10th year of the Junior Suns skit at the MVT high school pep assembly.
Ike retired from the team last year due to a growth spurt and so he was made the coach.

This year one of the varsity basketball players was awarded a trip to Rome by the Make-a-Wish foundation.  He has been sick a long time and went through a very rough year.
Luckily he is doing a lot better so he will be able to enjoy his trip.
He is the one wearing the blue t-shirt in the front.

This is Gary Ernst (the most winning basketball coach in Arizona).
He has been coaching since I went to Mountain View...eons and eons.

A highlight for sure was watching Summer in Footloose at Actor's Youth Theater.
She has found her thing.

This is the time of year to be outside and enjoy the sunshine.
Love spending time with my sis Bridgette and her babies.
