  • A Look Back at a Very Busy Holiday

    A Look Back at a Very Busy Holiday

    This is going to be a long post. Sorry in advance. We started “December” the weekend before Thanksgiving. One of the only things I like about living in Salt Lake is that it is virtually free to do fun things. Like go to the Christmas tree lighting at the Gateway and get a free Kurt […]

    Balsamic-Honey Glazed Steak

    I have been a complete slacker on the¬†blogging¬†front.¬† So just to have something on my main page other than my twitter archives I thought that I would put up what I made for Christy for Mother’s Day.

    Rapunzel, Rapunzel, When Did You Grow Up?

    Holy moley look at my little girl. Acting on stage for a her school’s musical, and then in a couple of weeks speaking in our Stake Conference. Seriously, it was not that long ago that this was her. But this is a lament of all parents I guess. I am very proud of her and […]
