29 years old?!?

Okay, I guess I better wish myself Happy Birthday today. Yes, it's true, I turn 29 years old. 30 is just around the corner now! But I haven't broken a hip or lost my memory yet, so I guess I still have a few good years left in me! haha....

Good Books

I thought I would share with you the new book series that I am reading. It's by Scott Westerfeld. The first book is called Uglies. It is about a futuristic place where people are raised to believe they are ugly until they turn 16, at which time they have surgery to become "pretty." The surgery is a total overhaul, making your face symmetrical, your eyes bigger, cheek and chin implants, the works. The series is about a girl named Tally that tries to escape the city to find her friend that lives in a "rebel camp" where people stay ugly. It is a really good book. I have finished it, and I am reading the second book in the series called Pretties. There are a couple more books in the series, Specials and Extras along with a reference book. I recommend them to anyone who likes reading. I read someone's review that said it's "a sci-fi book for people who don't like sci-fi." I couldn't agree more!

Thanks to everyone!!

I just want to say thanks to everyone for coming to my Scentsy and Usborne Book party. It was a lot of fun to see you, and we had a great turn out. A lot of people said they came to start their Christmas shopping early (it's less than 3 months away!) If any of you weren't able to make it, but still wanted to order, you can do so online. For Scentsy, go to Then go into "place an order", and choose my event on 9/27/08. This will add the order to my party and you won't have to pay for shipping. For Usborne Books, go to, which is also a link to my party.
I am going to close my parties on Saturday, October 4 so that we can get the orders placed and get the candles and books on their way. Let me know if you can't access these sites.
Thanks again to everyone for their support, and I will let you know when your stuff is in!!

5 years!

Hey everyone! Yesterday was Jason and my 5th wedding anniversary. I can't believe it's been 5 years already. We were married on Sept 20, 2003 in the Salt Lake LDS temple. It was a beautiful ceremony and we had many friends and family there with us. We then had a reception at my parent's house in Payson. It was in their backyard. Our colors were red, silver, and white. Jason helped choose those colors, as they reminded him of Hong Kong, China, where we met. We started our 2 1/2 week honeymoon in Park City at a condo that my bff Haley's dad owned. We were there for 4 or 5 days, then we drove to Arizona, where we had an open house the following Saturday. The open house was at Jason's parents house, and they had it decorated beautifully. They also played on the Chinese theme, and had lanterns and fans hung up outside, along with candles floating in their pool. It was very nice. Then we drove to California where we spent about a week. We went to Disneyland, and it was a blast. We had 5 day passes there, then we went to Knotts Berry for a day. We then drove to Las Vegas, where we finished up our honeymoon. We were there for a few days, and headed back to our first apartment, which was in Murray Utah.
We enjoyed our anniversary yesterday. A lot has happened in 5 years. We built our house in Payson. We've been lucky to have been able to travel to quite a few places together. Most importantly, we were blessed with our son almost 2 years ago. Cameron spent the day with us yesterday and we wouldn't have wanted it any other way.
My friend Jenn also had her 5 year anniversary this year, and she put pictures of her wedding on her blog. I thought it was a great idea, and I am following her example. Below are pictures of the big day, both at the temple and the reception afterward. We have been very blessed in our lives together, and I love Jason more and more every day.

Our wedding cake. It was all real cake, and we forgot to cut it and serve it during the reception, so we had a lot of cake left over!!

Hey for anyone interested, I am going to host 2 parties at my house this month. One is going to be for the Scentsy Candles. They have some new scents and new warmers that just came out, and I thought it would be fun to have a follow up party. I had a party last year (my first party that I have ever hosted) and it went well. It was fun to have peopleover, so I thought I would do it again.
The second party that I am going to have is for Usborne books. For anyone not familiar with these books, they are designed for children from infants to older readers. They are awesome books. Bright colors, fun pictures, etc. I went to a part last year and ended up buying several books for Cameron for Christmas. He loves them. They are touchy-feely books and are really durable.
So since Christmas is sneaking up on us, I thought I would have both of these parties at the same time so people can come and do some early Christmas shopping! It will be on Sept 27th at 1:00 at my house. Feel free to come and bring a friend. Hope to see you there!!

No Water??

Ok, so here's the story of the day. We flew back from Arizona on Sunday (more on our trip later.) Things seemed to be going wrong from the airport until we got home. Cameron was the "noisy kid" in the airport. He was so fascinated by the planes, and everytime he saw one, he thought he should let everyone else in the waiting area know. But, he did really well on the plane, so I can't complain about that. He stayed awake the entire flight, but was very quiet and wasn't very wiggly. Anyway, I fell off the shuttle bus on our way to our car. (caught myself with the suitcase, but rolled my ankle.) Then our card wouldn't read when we tried to pay for parking. Things after that were fine until we got home. It was about 9:30 p.m. and all I wanted to do was take a shower and go to sleep since I had to work the next morning. Jason went out to get the suitcases, and I turned on the water in the shower. No, let me rephrase, I turned on the faucet in the shower, but there was no water! I didn't know what was going on, so I checked the bathroom faucet. Still nothing. I started panicking. I checked the kitchen, nothing. So I told Jason and we went outside and looked around to see if there was a big gyser of water in our yard. Nothing. Checked the basement for a flood. Nothing. It was so weird. We checked and the water main was still turned on, so I called a neighbor and she said that they hadn't had any problems. I was racking my brain to figure out what it could be, and thought maybe our city billed didn't get paid, but I checked online, and it had been paid and cashed. So, I ended up calling an emergency after-hours phone number for Payson City, and some guy said they would be right out. And he was serious. He was there within about 10 minutes. He took a hammer down into our basement and banged around for a few minutes, then went out and checked our water meter, then banged downstairs again, and voila, we had water, and it was almost like nothing had happened. No loss of pressure, or anything. So we asked him what happened, and he said that on newer houses, there is a pressure gauge above the water shut off valve, and inside the gauge there is a spring. Sometimes the spring gets stuck due to hard water and sometimes it's lack of use. But if you bang on it, and knock it loose, then things work just fine. He said its not something that we need to worry about, but I thought I would share this with you, in case it ever happens to you. Needless to say, I was really ready for my shower by the time the water came on!!

Cameron's vacation

We are adding some pictures of Cameron's "vacation". He stayed with Jason's parents (Nana and Papa) while we were in Mongolia. He played with his cousin Danilynn. (She's the daughter of Jason's older brother Jeremy, and his wife Nikki.) He had so much fun with Dani. Even now when he looks at the pictures, he starts to laugh and points out Dani and him.

Jason and I went to Mongolia in May. My brother served a mission there, and we went to pick him up after he was finished. We were joined by my mom, dad, 2 sisters, grandma, aunt, and great-aunt. Cameron stayed with his Nana and Papa (Jason's parents) while we were gone. I have promised some people that I would post some of the Mongolia pictures we have. There are several... This is a picture of me, Jason, Krista, Grandma, my mom, and Austin. This is a big statue of Chinggis Khan that they are building. (Chinggis and Ghengis are the same person. Chinggis is the Mongolian way of saying his name.) And, yes, it snowed on us a couple times while we were there.A picture of one of their Buddha statues. There are several religions in Mongolia. The LDS church has only been there since the 90's, and it is growing like crazy.
Our group in front of the buddha statue: left-right Jason, Aunt Willi, Me, Grandma Moore, Mom, Great-Aunt Claudia, Austin, Dad, Krista, Miranda.
A view of Ulaanbaatar, the capital of Mongolia. Mongolia has about 2 million people, and over half live in UB.This is at Sukhbaatar Square, which includes Mongolia's Parliament House.
We left the city for a couple days, and headed out into part of the country. These are the two camels that we got to ride. (My sister has the pics on her camera of us actually on them.)
Here is a yak. It was so big. It had a calf the day before, and we were looking at the calf, and I think she started to get nervous. We were all afraid she was going to charge us, but didn't.

These are some "gers" which are the nomadic Mongolian's houses. These are ones that were replicated to look like what Chinggis Khan's craftsmen/women stayed in. They are pretty roomy inside, and have a wood burning stove in the middle, which really kept it warm

This is a picture of my dad, Jason, and brother Austin. They were dressed up in replica clothing of Chinggis' guards. Pretty intimidating, huh?

Last of the pictures (at least for now) is one of Jason and me. We are sitting on a replica of Chinggis' throne.

So, those are the pics that I am posting for now. I will probably post some more later, ones with us on camels, and some with all of us dressed up in traditional clothes. We loved our trip to Mongolia. The people were awesome. The language is cool to hear. It's more like Russian than Chinese. The food was ok too. The shopping was pretty good. We had a suit tailor-made for Jason, and it cost about $50, which included the material, the seamstress, and a tip because she made it within a week. She is the one that all the missionaries use. Not too shabby. All in all, it was a great trip, and although we missed Cameron like crazy, I am glad we went. It was a once-in-a-lifetime trip. If anyone ever wants to go on a trip to a far-off land, I recommend Mongolia!!

Here goes nothing....

Okay, I guess this is my beginning post to see how this works. After much convincing, I have decided to start a blog so I can keep in touch. I am still trying to figure this thing out. I haven't added pictures or fun things yet, but I guess that will come as I get familiar with this. If any of you have any hints on how to easily personalize this page, let me know.
