Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I just wanted to let everyone know how thankful I am for all the many blessings that have been sent my way. I will forever be grateful for my husband Austin and for the hard worker that he is. He constantly lets me know how much he loves me and I am just grateful for all that he does for me. I'm grateful for my little Kylie. Being a mom has been one of the best things that has ever happened to me. That little girl is the sweetest thing that I have ever seen. I love being able to be home with her. She is such a joy to be around and I'm so thankful Heavenly Father let us be her parents. I'm thankful for my in-laws and all that they have done for us over the years. They are always willing to help out in any way and I'm so thankful for the love that they constantly show us. To my parents, who have been such good examples to me and the rest of my siblings. They always did what they could to provide the best for us. They have become my best friends, and I wish we lived closer so I can see them more, but I'm grateful for the opportunities that we have to visit a few times a year. I love you guys!

And most of all, I am thankful for my Heavenly Father and for my Savior Jesus Christ. There have been many times in my life that I have been given second chances and I will forever be grateful for that. They have seen the person I could become. I would be lost without this gospel and without the knowledge that I will be able to spend eternity with my family. I pray I can always strive to do what is right and to always be a good example to others. I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving this year :)

Christmas Trees

Hello everyone. Sorry, I will not be posting any new cute pics of Kylie because our camera has been sitting in our hall closet collecting dust. But I do have a very important question to ask...Where do you buy your Christmas trees? And I'm talking about the real thing. Not some stupid fake one. Sorry, I am all for real trees. Well, except maybe for last year. I do believe there was an egg sac left over from some stupid momma spider because we had all these little spiders crawling around the floor. AND I do believe there was a dead animal carcass somewhere hidden in the tree because the thing started stinking like...well a carcass. It was sick. That has never happened before. But anyway, we've always gotten our tree from the lot next to the Planted Earth store on State street in Orem. It's like diagonally from the Scera pool. So my friends, I ask, where is the best place with the best price to buy my tree? I've always wanted to cut my own tree down and don't know where to do that or how much it costs. Anyway, please let me know!

Halloween 2009

Well, Halloween has come and gone, but we sure had a lot of fun! We went to our ward’s trunk or treat and Kylie was able to get a bunch of candy. She was mainly interested in the suckers and would therefore grab one if it was in the bowl. She would never grab the good stuff! :) After that we went up to AF to see Howard and Wendy and Austin’s grandma. By the end of the night she had quite the haul. I am now officially sick of her candy. Literally, I think I ate 1/4 of it. Yes, I’m addicted. My name is Linley and I’m addicted to delicious fattening candy :) Anyway, hope you all had a great Halloween!
