   So I haven't been on the blog for quite sometime as you all may have noticed. So I will try to update in as little words as possible.  I went to Chicago and met Erin and her family. They are amazing:) Loved meeting them so much. Erin and Shawn competed in the marathon and did really well. Shawn had hurt her foot at the 6 mile, but being the trooper she is, continued on and finished.  So proud of both of them!!
   October brought a birthday for Summer! Can't believe she is 23 years old. Man, she is making me OLD! We also lost our home, long story, ended up moving into a house that once belonged to our very good friends, Stan and Pam. I have always loved this house and it has been fun living in it :)
    November we had Thanksgiving on our very own this year. It was really fun because we had bbq ribs, shrimp and chicken. What a fun meal. we had so much fun just talking around the table.
     December brought Skyler's scoliosis surgery. He has about 25 screws and rods down his back. His scar is 21 inches, there is a 7 in  scar just below his belly button and a 3 in on his side. He was such a trooper in the hospital, all the staff loved him! His back is still having some pain but all in all he's really doing well :) He gained an inch in height, but his feet are still growing! He is in a size 22 shoe, I think I better call Nike for donations!!!!
  On Christmas Eve, Summer called and let us know that she is pregnant again!! We are so excited, she is due around August 26.
   In January Dave and I got our callings in the new ward. Dave is the teacher for the 16-17 year old.  I was called to be the 2nd councilor in the primary.  I work with the neatest women!! Love the Woodland Lake Ward. They have been so supportive and welcoming to our family.
   February is bringing some life changing decisions to our family. We have decided to move to none other than Heber town!!! A lot of things have made this choice, the boys are sick to death of Blue Ridge and I have to admit so am I. We feel they will have more opportunities at Mogollon High School. Another huge reason is that I really feel  I need to be close to mom and dad. I want my kids to get to know dad and be helpers to mom.  I'm not writing my dad off, just feel it would be good to be near him while he is going through his cancer. This is a huge move for Dave, since he will still work an hour away. It will be an adjustment but well worth it.  We are very excited, so watch out Heber, the TALL family is moving in:) :)
   Hope I covered everything, I'm actually using Dave's work computer since mine decided to up and die :(  Have a great one my fellow bloggers! Love you all

I'm sure that will be loads of fun to live in Heber, except for Dave's commute. Maybe he can get audio books at the library. I hope the school is much better for the kids.

Wowee, what a lot you've had to do last year, and a new year brings more changes. I hope the new school works for your kids, and they can excel there. It's good to see pictures of your family. Congrats on the new grandchild to be.

Uh wait you are moving... you just got here!!! I don't blame you though, you have to do what is best for your family. I have really enjoyed getting to know you in Primary, and will be sad to see you go =(

Congratulations on your upcoming move. I hope you find the peace you deserve.

Now this should be done carefully as different Xbox games offers different amount of free codes.
This isn't anything new to the "Silver" accounts, though. Another way to earn free Xbox codes is by competing in the competitions that are held up by Microsoft.

Usually, the best time to expect free time on Xbox Live is when
there is a gaming event taking place (such as the launching of
a new game). The best time to visit the Microsoft website is when there
happens to be an event that touches on gaming such as the launch of an entirely new game.
This method is a one time registration to our General Gaming

An impressive share! I have just forwarded this onto a coworker
who had been doing a little homework on this. And he actually ordered me breakfast
due to the fact that I discovered it for him.
.. lol. So let me reword this.... Thanks for the meal!
! But yeah, thanks for spending the time to talk about
this matter here on your internet site.

You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I
find this topic to be actually something that I think I would never understand.
It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I'm looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
