Today was such a memorable day! The girls and I went to the Gilbert Temple this morning! We had a fun time taking a few pics before we headed off to San Tan for some shopping and lunch! I hope my girls will always remember today.

my best friend

this is the love of my life. i am grateful for him and how hard he works for our family. he knows me so well and tenderly takes care of me. i don't know where i would be without him.
i'm grateful he lives a righteous life and loves the Lord.

Ashley as Annie!!

Ashley tried out for the school play this past year and she got the part of Annie! The day she found out what part she got, Clate was working from home on the computer. Ashley walked over and asked him where I was. Clate told Ashley I was back in my room and to wait because I would be out soon. She started pacing around the kitchen and then went and stood right by Clate. She said, "Dad, I had a really good day at school today." Clate said, "Oh really! What happened?" Ashley said, "You know how I tried out for the school play? Well, I got the part of Annie!!!!" Clate got all excited with Ashley, gave her a high five and a hug and said, "Let's go get mom and tell her!"
We are very proud of Ashley. She spent many, many, many hours practicing her speaking and singing parts. We feel like she made the perfect Annie. Everyone that helped out at the school was amazing! They did a fabulous job casting all the parts. We had many friends and neighbors in the play. Daddy Warbucks lives 3 houses down! Enjoy all the pictures!
I need to apologize to Kristin and Hannah Howard for taking so long to post these pictures. :)
