Thanksgiving VACATION

This week Bill and Shiloh have been on vactaion.
Bill and I have been on the go all week.
We did all of our Christmas shopping.
We both were exhausted at the end of each day.
We did not do much sight seeing.
I did not take a lot of pictures.
We took Brooklyn to see her first movie.

BOLT - It was great and she did very well.

Spending time with Bill - Saturday Drive part 4

RUBY BEACH - Washington
After leaving Forks, Washington we drove over to the Ocean. I love (I mean LOVE) the Ocean. The beach was real sand, but had a lot of rocks and pebbles in it too. We got there in time to see the SUNSET. Need I say BEAUTIFUL? No I know that you will get it from the pictures. I could have stayed there forever. But it was late and we had a 4 1/2 hour drive home and had to get started. I wish that we lived closer to the OCEAN.

Time spent with Bill - Saturday Drive - Part 3

A Drive through Forks - Since I had no idea of what to take pistures of I don't have a lot. SORRY
As we drove into this small community of about 3000 people, we found the twon to be pleasent.
We were hungry and ate at the local diner. the food was great. This picture was taken on a bench in front of the diner.
Then we drove over to the Visitor Center. We picked up a packet for Tierra (You are very Welcome - it will be in the mail soon)
Driving out of town was very eerie the fog was rolling in and the sun was setting and I sware it looked like something you would see in a horror flick.

Time spent with Bill - Saturday Drive - Part 2

After we got off the Ferry we drove West. our goal was to see the OCEAN.
Here we stopped at Cresent Lake to see the snow on the mountain tops.

Time spent with Bill - Saturday Drive Part 1

On the spur of the moment Bill and I decided to take a Drive. We started out early in the morning and took a ferry ride to the west side of the Sound. Here are some pictures of the sunrsie. (Well it was about 9 am.)
The Ferry stopped in the middle of the water to have a memorial service. We never did find out who or what for. But it was wonderful to sit still in the deck of the ferry and enjoy the sun, without the wind blowing slean through all the layers of you clothes and skin.

Fun new game

* Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
* Turn to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post that sentence along with these instructions in an email to all your friends.
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

"If there were any reason to strike Laman, his words against his father's vision of a promised land, his mockery of the Messiah, and his harsh words towards his mother were more than enought, but Nephi kept his hands down, his fists pressed against his sides." (Day of Remeberance by David G. Woolley)

"You Know Enough"

"Challenges, difficulties, questions, doubts—these are part of our mortality. But we are not alone. As disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ, we have enormous spiritual reservoirs of light and truth available to us. Fear and faith cannot coexist in our hearts at the same time. In our days of difficulty, we choose the road of faith."
--Elder Neil L. Andersen, "You Know Enough", Ensign, Nov 2008, 13–14

"The Infinite Power of Hope"

"Hope is one leg of a three-legged stool, together with faith and charity. These three stabilize our lives regardless of the rough or uneven surfaces we might encounter at the time... Hope in our Heavenly Father’s merciful plan of happiness leads to peace, mercy, rejoicing, and gladness. The hope of salvation is like a protective helmet; it is the foundation of our faith and an anchor to our souls."

--Dieter F. Uchtdorf, "The Infinite Power of Hope", Ensign, Nov 2008, 21–24

Unusal Cars

Someone sent me these cool pictures of cars and I thought that they were different enough to post them in my Blog.
