Salt Lake City...

I am a little late posting this trip but somehow school got in the way with finals and all that jazz. I must say that I have accomplished straight A's this semester. I am pretty excited about it. Anyway our trip to Salt Lake a couple weeks ago was so fun. Although it was really short, we still had an excellent time. The weather turned out to be quite cold on the night of the race. We had awesome seats right by the finish line, then we got rained on, snowed on, and more rain. We ended up moving to the very top of the stadium which had an awning type deal so we could get away from the weather. All in all it was a cool race with my favorite rider (Kevin Windham) winning the 450 class main event. The best part of the trip was meeting with my big bro and his lovely wife for lunch followed by a visit to temple square. I had not been to temple square for quite a few years, let me just say I had been missing out! Temple square is the most beautiful place ever. What makes it so beautiful is the peaceful feeling one recieve's the second upon entering. It brought tears to my eyes as we explored the grounds as well as the visitor's center. The vistor's center held some new material, all about the construction and how the temple was built. I was brought to tears once again as I watched the sister missionaries teach vistors about God's plan and the reason we have temples. The feeling is so beautiful inside the grounds, a feeling of belonging and reverance. There is no worry or care while inside this place. Why does it have to leave so quickly once you walk away? I have decided my goal in life is to become a temple worker someday. We also had the priviledge of visiting the tabernacle and listening to the men's choir practicing some songs. We had a great time. I encourage all of you who are tryig to decide where to take a trip, go to SLC and visit temple square. It is beautiful!! Well today is also my 15th Anniversary. I will be posting pics of Larry and I at a later time, I have not had a chance to get them done yet. Tomorrow will be our 14th anniversary for when we were sealed in the Idaho Falls temple. I have some fun pics of that event as well as some new photos celebrating our 15 years of marriage!!

Ryan's Baptism

Ryan was baptized a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints on April 10,2010. I was so mad at myself because we get to the church for the baptism and I am getting my camera ready to take pictures and my stupid battery is dead!!! I could kick myself so the image is from Natalia's phone. I was almost to tears but Larry's mom did take some pics but I have not recieved them yet. When I do I will get them up. It was a very nice baptism. Most of our family came and we had a good time with them all. It was a very nice experience. The funny thing is that all of my kids have been baptized in a different city. Natalia was baptized in Chubbuck, Seth in LaGrande, and Ryan in Caldwell. That is a little sad, it tells you how much we have moved but we have had some great experiences and have met some wonderful people. I am very thankful for my family and for experiences like these that bring us all together. How blessed I am!!!

My baby turns 8...

Well my baby has turned 8. I can't believe it but its true. Here are some things I love about Ryan...He is very funny, loves to tease, very fun personality, so shy around everyone he doesn't know, has the cutest ears, loves to play all sports, very good at basketball, cutest voice, very energetic, and he is my baby. The photos are for his upcoming baptism. He is very excited to be baptised. He hates having his picture taken and usually I have to fight with him to even get one good one. This time he was wonderful and so good. He let me take a lot of pictures. Here are a few but I should be able to put some more a little later.

My little Angels....

It's been a while, but things are going great! School has been very good and such a great opportunity for me. I am working very hard, but have straight A's. I am very proud of myself! Going to school has made the time fly even faster. The semester is almost over, just about a month. The kids are doing great as well, Natalia always pulls straight A's and Larry has a bumper sticker on his truck to tell the world. The boys keep improving all the time and have A's and B's. Larry is doing well too, he is just a hard working man! Anyway here are some new photos of the kids. They are so cute!

Its amazing how often I get stabbed in the back by people who I thought were my friends.

A New Year....

The holiday's are over and a new year begins! It was a great holiday break, we had a wonderful Christmas and a quiet new year. On New Year's Eve we spent the night partying with our kids. We played games and watched a movie. Then at midnight we broke open the bubbly(sparkling cider) and drank it from fancy champagne glasses, oh the fun the kids had with that! Then spent the last couple of weeks getting ready for my first semester in college! I am very scared to start school at my age but I know its what I need to do. I have decided to do Pharmacy after I debated between that and Physical Therapy. It will be very challenging for me I know, but I can do it!! I will be studying Pre-Pharmacy at the College of Western Idaho here in Nampa then will transfer to the program at BSU. BSU just started the program this year, so that is good news for me. It will probably take me 3 years to do the pre-pharmacy generals but I am hoping I can do it in 2, I plan to continue on through the summer as well. Anyway to back track a little here are a few pics of the Muir family Christmas party. Warning: I look like crap cuz I had been traveling all day so don't look too close at me:) We had a great time together. It had been a long time since we all were together in one spot! We had a wonderful dinner prepared by our wonderful mother and lots of fun catching up and some good laughs...

Christmas '09

Another Christmas come and gone! We had an excellent first Christmas in our new home and the kids got spoiled again. They got up around 6am but Larry and I did not get up until 7am. We made them wait for us. They are really good about not getting up real early on Christmas morning. We enjoyed taking turns opening our gifts. I must say that I am the one that got the most which never happens but Larry really spoiled me this year. He gave me 2 pairs of boots, which floored me because he hates adding to my collection of over 100 pairs of shoes, a coat, chanel no.5 perfume, a big mirror for my entry, and a couple of new shirts, another thing he hates to buy me! He said its because I love you! Oh how cute is he!! The kids each got a big present, big means cost! Natalia got the lg dare phone that she begged for, for 2 months, clothes from Hollister and Aero, and lotions and hair stuff. Seth got a 1776 piece star wars lego set, wii games, clothes, and a new coat. Ryan got a razor motor scooter, air soft gun, wii games, clothes, and new hat and gloves. We got Larry new tools and clothes. So it was a good Christmas for us. To top off the day Larry made prime rib which was sooo good and we had mashed potatoes, homemade rolls, jello, veggies, and salad. I am very thankful for Christmas not only for the gifts but for our Savior who died for all of us. I am also thankful for the spirit of Christmas that is felt everywhere and for the opportunity for us to give to people in need and for the time we get to spend with our families. I love Christmas!!
