Getting The Word Out

In our journey in life, we meet people that touch our lives in ways we will never forget. In my time at Joe Morley's I met a lady named Annie, and she is great person! I loved working with her, and when she left I, along with everyone else working there, were so sad to say goodbye to her. When I first met her she was dating a wonderful guy named Dan. They got married in June of 2005, and they could not be happier! They are the most perfect couple, and I don't think either of them could be any nicer.

Dan and Annie love the outdoors, and they love to travel. They both served missions in Italy, only 5 years apart! They love to do projects around their house and they love to be with their friends and family.

I got a letter in the mail earlier this week from Annie that deeply touched my heart. Annie and Dan have decided to adopt a child. With my experience with adoption with my sister Britney and Hayden, I want nothing more for Dan and Annie to experience parenthood and I want everyone to know about how great of people Annie and Dan are and how much they really deserve this. Their adoption agent told them to tell everyone they know that they are adopting, and so I'm relaying the message. They have made a website so that whoever is interested in giving up a child for adoption can get to know them better, its I will put up a link for easy access on my wall also.

If you know anybody who is giving up a child for adoption, please PLEASE tell them about my friends Dan and Annie Palmer, they will make wonderful parents and will provide only the best for their child.

Another Great Holiday Weekend

Labor Day has come and gone and sadly Summer is coming to an end. Its a bitter sweet time of year, we say goodbye to our warm days wearing shorts and going boating as we welcome our favorite past time.... football with lots of munchies :-)

We ended this Summer with a great campout with all our closest friends and family. Some were missed, and we look forward to seeing them again. Like usual, we camped at Pineview in the Anderson Cove group site. We love going to Pineview, were close to the beach where our camp spot is and it never really gets too hot there.This is the campout that I look forward to all year long. We go on Memorial Weekend too, but not everyone comes to that one and its still just a little chilly. We usually get the boat out all weekend, but this one was a lazy weekend and we all just vegged out on the beach pretty much the whole entire time and chatted with our friends. Its always good eating when we camp, lots of burgers, chips cookies, nachos, cupcakes and every other piece of junk food you can think of. The fires are what I really look forward to all day. Everyone comes together after dinner and we all tell stories and catch up on each others lives. I can't wait for nex year!

The family that we camp with during the summer we also tailgate with. My family are HUGE Utah fans and I love every second I share with them. I love how Joey fits in so well with everyone, especially my cousin Ed, they have built a pretty good relationship these past few years, they are identical personality wise. If you have ever been to the tailgating lot.... you know my cousin Ed. He lives to tailgate, and football is his LIFE. We plan on going to a few games this year, and tailgating a whole bunch with the fam and friends, its always an adventure hanging out with that bunch.
We kicked off the UTES season with lots of food and drinks at home, it was an intense game but we made the win in overtime... no thanks to Whittingham. I dont think I have ever seen Joey yell at the TV like he did during that game... what a nailbiter.
We kicked off the NFL season with our friends Dave and Sinda, another night full of delish, fatty foods. Sinda is a Saints fan, they played the Vikings and kicked their butts.... Sorry Sara :-) Its always fun getting together with those 2, Sinda is so cute, she baked little cookie footballs and helmuts. They brought the good news with them saying that they are moving to Draper in October, they now live in Orem, so now they wont be so far away and we can have more games together this season.
Everyone is saying Detroit will be the ones to get ready to play this year... ya ya I will see it when I believe it.

But as you know, Joey is so excited.. and pretty unbearable. I'm excited for my Pack, were said to make it to the Super Bowl this year and if we do.... take that Brett Favre!

One of my favorite things about football season.... naps. We play hard all summer so Sundays are our catchup nap day :-)
Are you ready for some football???
