Hello Again!

Sorry I haven't been blogging but it's been a crazy summer and now it's finally settling down a bit.

So much has happened! We moved to North Salt Lake, UT to our new home, Ryan started his new job and had a birthday, the girls started first/third grade, Matthew turned 1, and we are somewhat functional and stable;) I'll just post some pics and do more later. We feel so blessed and happy! Thanks for everyone's prayers and support!

Our family on a nice afternoon on Temple Square after the Music and the Spoken Word broadcast. Ryan's second official broadcast conducting one of the songs. He did awesome! We're so proud of him!

Here's a picture of us in the Tabernacle in front of the organ. Ryan's new office is underneath the tabernacle which is pretty cool.

Ryan's thirty-something birthday! The girls designed the cake and I helped them decorate it. It was a fun! We love you daddy! You don't look a day over 25;)

Hailey with her new third grade teacher Mrs. Kidd at their new school Orchard Elementary. They were a bit nervous but mostly excited and have adjusted well to life at a new school.

Megan with her new first grade teacher Mrs. Deaton on her first day of school. She was so excited! Hailey and Megan both have great teachers!

Matthew turns 1 year old! We celebrated with some our friends Abbie and Tyler! I can't believe it's been a year already! He's such a great kid and I can't wait to see what his future will hold. He's finally crawling "normal", pulling himself to standing, climbing the stairs, and has 7 teeth. He loves music, chasing his sisters in his walker, getting tickled, and laughing when I say "no". An all around good natured soul!

IT is so good to see how you guys are doing!! The girls teachers look really nice. And WOW it is good to see Abbie and Tyler! How far away are Laurie and the kids from you? Glad you guys hooked up.
I have to say, this is the FIRST conference EVER where my kids eyes were glued to the tv watching for Bro. Murphy during the songs. We miss you all soooo much!

Congrats on graduation, the new job and the move, so jealous you are in UT! I miss the west terribly! We've been in Fl for about 4 years now!! I get home to Pendleton once a year at Christmas time but that's about it! You have an adorable family!

I'm so glad to see that you have made an appearance back in blogland...

I had so much fun with you guys when I was there. Just yesterday I was trying to figure out where I could play balloon baseball with my girls. We don't have as much space as you do.

I love you and miss you! My girls were so excited to see Ryan at conference, tell him we thought he did AWESOME! I have a couple of issues though. I will make them known on his facebook:)

Congrats on the success on graduation, the move, and at general conference. Great accomplishments. You two make a great team. Your family is beautiful. I am so excited that we have friends to visit in Utah again. We have family and that's wonderful, but there is something special about staying connected with inspiring and treasured friends. Hope to see you soon. Thanks for the update!
