No one can drink water like she can!

These pictures are out of order.

Her laugh, ahhh I miss it.

Waiting in line for a ride.Are not all these rules the same????????????????

Ready for the picture..............


Things are going well, I couldn't find my camera so these picture are a little bit older. Linda and Garrick came- we did a lot of things saw some movies, did some shopping, and ate some GOOD FOOD!!! I don't have any pictures because I couldn't find the camera! Linda made some AMAZING FOOD salmon, scalped potatoes, homemade ice cream, THE WORKS! Garrick and Brent had a good time running aways from wasps, and playing games. It's always fun to see them get together and talk about old times- and movie quotes. Grandma, Grandpa, Leah, Michele, and Kat came down for Aunt Dixie's funeral yesterday. I haven't seen the family since las November! The funeral was nice she was an amazing woman. After we went to the Oqurrih Temple open house, it was a quick run through- the only temple I've seen that was that color on the outside. It's the 13th Temple in Utah, and the 130th in the world. So, that means that 10% of the temples are in Utah. We are so lucky to be able to be so close to all these temples. The visit was quick with both McDowells and Warrens. We miss our families and hope to see them soon in California. Loves.


A New Hallway!

This is Ollie's room/hallway
I still have to put that clock up a little, but right now its just hanging out. Brent and I thought we'd go a little daring with this color since it was just the hallway. We LOVE it!

It looks really good walking into the bathroom

A Little more of an update. Brent went to the 311 CONCERT! He said it was a blast, and when he came home he made me listen to their newest cd. "Peanut was wearing this, they opened up with this song..." All this happened at one in the morning, so my excitment really wasn't were he wanted it to be :) Brent has also been really busy with comcast and the digial transition. Poor guy, I have the day off today cause the school went to Lagoon! Tomorrow Linda and Garrick come we can't wait! We do feel bad that we're gone for more than half the day, but at least we're not doing the dancing anymore. Young women's is different than I thought it would be. As a teacher it was easier for me to talk to the girls cause it was my time to talk and teach. In young women's I sit there with my binder of information and listen. The sister who did this job before me IS the most amazing person there is. I guess she did everything, and when I say everything I truely mean everything. So, I've been told I have HUGE shoes to fill which scares me because I only wear a size 8! Everything is e-mail, so I check my NEW e-mail everyday. alexamcdowell@comcast.net Our year mark is in three months, makes me wonder what all the people we know did on their year mark. We probably will just go out to dinner or buy some more PAINT! I looked at prices for some things, but the most expensive ones were the one's I wanted. CRUISE to ITALY! hahaha not yet. Brent and I have been THINKING about a house, and have decided that we need to fix my credit :( I'm fine on my credit card, it's just that when I was in college I didn't pay my knee bills for a while cause they are/were expensive. Anyways, the young women's president is a real estate lady and she is keeping her eye out. We're not moving anytime soon cause we have such an amazing deal here with Kristy (who I love so much) we are just thinking about the next two years. Anyways, we love you all and we hope to go to california sometime soon.


What a Beauitful Life

This is our little baby! We love him so much, he is so full of life and thinks he's a dog HILAROUS! I PAINTED THE BATHROOM, there are some before pictures down a little bit. I thought about Grandma the WHOLE time! She has influenced my life so much and the urge to make our basement look nicer came from her- I love projects! Thank you Grandma!
I got everything in the room from IKEA I love that store more than anything!

This guy (George) taught our class yesterday! He works with the best, and does hair at the grammy's! The taller brown hair girl is Kellee and she gets to go to Vegas to be a model for Signature (a big hair show for salons all over the US). We are so proud of her, Kaysi and I are determined to go to clean up hair or get water for people. George told us to get some recommandation letters for the opportunity. Either way we are going!

Yesterday we had dinner at my mom's new place, did I say that she was moving? Well, anyways she just got this really nice BBQ, so we put it to use after Brent and Bradon put it together for 2 hours! The steak was AMAZING!

Update Update update...

Oh it's been really long since I last worte. YES< the temple celebration is over! It was amazing and brought back a lot of memories of when we were in the Sacramento one. The kids did so WONDERFUL! Brent and I were proud of "our kids" President Monson was hilarlous! During the celebration there were pictures of all the Apostles in the war- and their today photos. It was neat to see all the men that served back in the day stand up in the audience. What a night. GOT A NEW CALLING!!!!!!!!! I'm now the young womens secretary!!! I'm sad that I don't get to teach anymore, but now I don't need an excuse to go to young womens! he he he! Brent is going to prepare the lesson every week now... gotta love him. Brent is doing some graphic design work for his uncle which is awesome for us- a little extra cash. We have a little surprise for everyone out there in the blog world but we have to wait a little longer to tell....... :) We love you all, and miss our California families... ahhhh home.
