This is the beautiful Rexburg temple!

While in Rexburg for Daniel's ordination, we walked through Ricks Garden and took some pictures of the kids.

Tanner thought that we needed pictures of us too!! He is quite the little photographer.(I guess it is in his genes!) This first one is my favorite. A little cropping and no one will know that a five year old took them!

Tanner is such a little poser. He did not want to just sit there and smile.

Emma is such a little stinker. She did not want to get her picture taken very much and would not smile for anything.

Eliza is such a sweet little baby. Her personality has really blossomed since we have been here. And she is the bussiest little thing ever!!!

Just because I love this picture!!

Daniel is an Elder!!!

On Sunday my youngest brother Daniel ( who is at BYU-I) was ordained an elder by Jared. It was a very spiritual experience. I am so glad that we were able to be there with him on such a special day. The high councilman told Daniel that this was one of the most important days of his whole life. He told Daniel that he now holds the same very priesthood that the prophet does. Daniel has alot of exciting things to prepare for in the next year-going through the temple and on a mission. It was a great day!

Yes it is true that we have moved to Idaho. The past month has been extremely crazy. Within in a month of deciding to move here we had our house packed in a big truck and were on the road. It has been a very emotional and spiritual experience for our little family. We strongly feel like Pocatello is where we are supposed to be and so here we are. We are excited for the growth and experiences awaiting us here! Until the markets gets better and we can sell our house in Arizona, we are renting one of Jon's (Jared's brother) new twin home. We are so thankful to be living in such a beautiful home! (only half of it is ours)

The kids love our huge backyard. This picture does not do it justice. I hope Jared loves this backyard as much as he does now after he mows it for the first time.

This is a picture of the rest of our street! Our street is on a hill that goes straight up.(which are all over in Pocatello- an adjustment for an Arizona girl) The first time we went for a walk around the block I told Jared it was more of a hike around the block.
