Today was an awesome day.. We were able to witness the groundbreaking of the new Temple that is going to be in Brigham where we live! We are so excited and it is really neat watching the progress that has already happened with it and more to come! President Packer presided today at the ceremony. He and his sweet wife are from Brigham City so I am sure they are just thrilled that they get to be such a big part in this temple. He is the one that suggested the looks and where it was going to stand. It is beautiful, looks alot like the Salt Lake Temple. We live a block and a half away from it so its great!! Jayven got to shake hands with Elder Nelson, touch President Packers hand as he got in his van and Turn the dirt for the Temple.. What an experience for him!! :) Here are some pictures!!

Well, I will start off saying that James and I met years ago when I was in 7th grade!! We lost contact as we were growing up and James had enlisted in the Marine Corps. I was about 16 when he finally found me again. :) We started dating and soon decided that we would be married. He asked me to marry him only 3 months after we had been dating! (yes I was only 16)James then got a call to serve in Iraq for 6-9 months... We got married the following April of 2005. Since then we have been married 5 1/2 years and we have a wonderful baby boy who is now 4 years old, and also one who is 18 months old!! Also, a daughter on her way, due in May! They are the light of our eyes it is great being parents!!
