So Mike got the family a puppy for Christmas. We decided to name him Dexter. He is really smart and we love him even though he is a handful at times. He is pretty much potty trained. Haylee likes and hates him. She mostly likes him unless he is jumping on her or play biting her. He is a great addition to the family.

San Diego Trip

So this past weekend I was able to go to San Diego for my sisters sealing. She got sealed in the San Diego Temple. I have to tell you it was the prettiest temple that I have ever been in. Elyse go her endowments out and then sealed to Steve on the same day. So it was a busy day but such a great day. I am grateful that I was able to go and witness her sealing. The spirit was so strong. I am thankful for Mike and Kathie for watching Haylee for me while I went.

Another reason I went was to see Steve before he gets deployed. It was nice being able to spend time with Steve and Elyse. While I was there I helped them move their stuff into a storage unit because Elyse is moving back to Utah until Steve gets back, and then we were able to go to the beach, play cards, and visit. It was such a great trip and I am so thankful for the gospel and being able to be sealed to my whole family. I love you Steve and Elyse and I am so proud of both of you.

So Steve let me try on some of his Marine gear that he has to wear. It is really heavy and this isn't even all of it, he would still have to add a backpack on top of all this. In the picture I am trying to look tough. It doesn't work very well but it was still fun.

All in all the trip was amazing and I am so grateful for the time I got to spend with my family even though I missed Mike and Haylee like crazy.
