this old house

My mom and i were driving around the other day and BOOM! all of the sudden i see the greatest house in the world! This picture does not do this house justice! Its smack dab in the middle of the city, yet it sits on a few acres of land. Its one of the few houses left that was built when phoenix first started to develop. there are wrap around portches, huge trees (one with a tire swing even. classic!) and a large guest house to the side. i was amazed to see this type of old house so close to the busy streets and corporate buildings. I love it.

The Best!

This right here is the greatest family EVER! I am so lucky to have such awesome and good looking siblings. Its difficult to think about what it would be like to grow up as an only child,or with even one of them missing, very boring. Its like having built-in best friends. I love it.

new calling...s

ive finally been released from my calling as a member of the enrichment committee after two grueling months! (i seriously did nothing.) Today i was put in as the young single adults ward representative alongside hayden, and also on the primary board as the SUNBEAMS teacher!! wow. I actually have to do assignments, talk to people and show up for meetings now! These are my first action callings and im pretty excited! Im guessing it will take some effort, which believe it or not i am willing to do, but im looking forward to doing it and seeing how this will strengthen my testimony!

P.S. in case any of my sisters were wondering, John had a missionary discussion on thursday. I wasnt present, but he and the missionarys both told me that it was enjoyable and such. YIPPEE!!
