The beginning of the month we (me and Glade) went to my parent's house to help them lay their sod in their backyard. I had to work, so we got there LONG after they were finished. We hung out with my parents, my brother, his friend Wes, Levi and his fiancee Shakeara. It was a lot of fun.
Sunday, we went to Calf Creek to hike to the lower falls. It is only about a 5 mile hike, but it is in sand, so it felt a LOT longer. My dad and I carried Glade (my dad more than me) and eventually she fell asleep with her head on top of his riding on his shoulders. It was really cute.
Glade and I came home Sunday night and it was good to be home and rest.
Last week, we went back to my parents because my dad was called as the 1st counsellor in the Bishopbric. It was such a great day! We were only able to stay for church, but it was so cool to see my dad get called and then have Blake and Clint stand in the circle to ordain him. It was really neat.
Then this last weekend, we went back over for my dad's "Older Than Dirt" 50th party. We played the Newliwed Game, and ate cake, and Glade had a ball with all the attention she got. Saturday we drove past Escalante and drove to Wayne Ct and over Hog's Back. It was a great drive. On top of the mountain, we ran into snow, and stopped by the sign that tells you the elevation, but it was covered in snow, so Clint got out, climbed the pole, in 20 degree weather, with no jacket and wiped the snow off. It was so funny.
When we got home we played horseshoes in my parents backyard (thank goodness for grass!) and it was a lot of fun. We watched a movie and then left Sunday morning to be back at church.
All in all, it was a SUPER eventful month!

If any of you haven't seen these, you need to watch these two videos. They show you that you should never judge anyone, and they are just amazing stories!
The first is Susan Boyle. She has caused quite a stir!!
This next is Paul Potts. He sang a year or so ago, but it is absolutely amazing!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1k08yxu57NA&feature=related

As we're walking around looking at things, I always stop to look at the dolls. I have collected porcelain dolls since I was about 8 years old. They have to be authentic, and I love the really expensive ones. It's actually amazing that I have about 30 of them now.
Well, I didn't see anything I liked, so I kept walking. We were about to leave, but something told me to look again at the dolls.
I walk over, and saw the most gorgeous doll I have ever seen in DI! I was so scared to look at the price because the doll was that gorgeous.
Blake looked at it and tells me it was only $12! I look to see who it was made by, and since I look at dolls online about 8 times a day, I know the prices of different brands and such. This one, there were only a handful made, and they retail for about $200. So, I had to buy it!!
So, without further ado, my new doll for my collection!
