Haley Jo! I have loved Haley since I met her. That would be way back before Mitch's mission. I loved her then because she was one of those super nice people and was always so willing to help with whatever people needed. I also loved her because she made my brother Mitch so happy! Now, years later I have gained a greater appreciation of this person we call Haley Jo. I love how she genuinely cares about others around her. She will go above and beyond what is needed in order to serve everyone. She is a bit of an over-achiever but despite that I still love her. She is dedicated and loyal to those she loves. She is an incredible worker. I love how she is so great with all the nephews and nieces who adore her! I love Haley because she still contributes greatly to Mitch's happiness! I am so thrilled that she has joined our family.
Tricia was born on Halloween 39 years ago! Tricia and I were born 14 months apart and I don't think I have any family memories that do not involve her! I wish I could say that I loved her from the moment I met her but come on, we were sisters! I love Tricia because she loves her legs, and because she loves purple and because she loves shoes. Just teasing. I love Tricia because she cares about others. She loves her family and would do anything to help them. I love Tricia because she laughs at your joke and then gets mad because you made her laugh. I love her because she is a great listener. If you want a good reaction to a story give her a call! Her extreme sensitivity may make her easy to mock but it also makes her one of the most compassionate people who is also very in tune to others feelings. It is a great gift that she has. I am so grateful that we survived our childhood and teen years together so we could grow up to be such great friends. Love her.

This is a picture of me, Mom (holy cow! she is beautifu!), Grandpa Carter (he still has all that hair only touched with a bit of white) and Tricia who from the moment she was born insisted on being in every photo ever. (I had to crop her out of Kim's engagement photo)!
This is a fun way to share random photos. Anyone who would like to share (I hate to pressure you!) please show and tell me about the 4th picture in your 4th folder!

Wow look at those pointed toes!
For help with your shoe buying addictions call Tricia or Sara although all they will suggest is shoe shopping as a temporary fix!
I was reading a friends blog today and she was doing some lists. (Relax Tricia I am not going to do another to do list) I liked her idea. I am a list person. So I am stealing it because she lives way too far away to do anything about it!
The list for today (being Sunday) is entitled...
"Callings I have Held Since I Graduated from YW". From past to present.
- Primary Accompanist
- Assistant Camp Director
- Sorority President (I was actually set apart thank you very much)
- Sorority Inter-chapter President (ditto)
- Relief Society Education Counselor
- Gospel Doctrine Teacher
- Sacrament Meeting chorister
- FHE group leader
- 13-14 yr old Sunday School Teacher
- Achievement Day Leader
- Primary Teacher
- Achievement Day Leader again
- Primary Teacher again
- Relief Society Homemaking committee
- Relief Society Teacher
- YW Beehive Counselor
- YW Laurel Advisor
So I could go through and tell you which were my favorites and which were my nightmare but Tricia would call me and tell me I was boring. So you tell me (she won't call you most likely) which callings have you held, which were your favorites and which ones did you barely survive and if you get called to again you may go inactive callings?

Hello. This is Tricia! I am sorry that my BORING sister has become so "real". I thought that I would bring a spark to this blog for a moment and tell you about a "real" fun life! MINE!! The first thing I did was change the page to my favorite color! PURPLE!! I have loved this color since, like the 7th grade! Isn't it gorgeous! So first change done! Check out my Christmas from a few years ago!
You may also notice that it has a Halloween theme. The most important day of the year falls on October 31st! It is my birthday! I love gifts or cards of any kind so just know that I work during the day so make sure you tell UPS to just leave the package at the door!
So a little bit about myself. The most important thing that you need to know about me is that I have THE. BEST. LEGS. I am typically told this everyday a least of few times. Sometimes I wear long pants just because it sometimes get SO annoying having people stop me at the store, at the gym and especially at the movies! It can sometimes be a curse having these Amazing Gifts!
Some of you poor people that actually have read my sisters downer of a blog may have heard that I was recently married. (That was my favorite post for sure). Brandon is my lucky husband. He is a wonderful husband but like any couple he has some problems that we are trying to work through. People don't like him much. He has a hard time getting along with others. It makes it really difficult to take him places. Really though nobody wants to hear about this so I will move on.
I have many interests. Reading, running, not eating, laughing, reading funny blogs, teaching, cooking, music, art, personal electronics, sewing, foreign languages, video games, rapping, leading a children's choir, real estate, politics, motorcycling, cinema, and playing the drums!
I have recently taken up an interest in the stock markets. I have invested heavily in KLX which is better known to you as the Kleenex company! The investment class I took told me to invest in something that was very important to you and that you couldn't imagine your life without! Wa-la. Kleenex. Some in my family would accuse me of being a bit emotional. I and other wise people know that I just am sensitive to the feelings of others. I am in touch with the aura that surrounds each individual and when I sense that their soul is aching I respond in kind in an empathetic demonstrative manner.
Well, I hope you have enjoyed this little foray into my FUN life! Hugs and Kisses xoxoxo
