We are in AZ

Welcome to Yuma, AZ....we arrived last night to see G'ma and Charlie and visit with them for Thanksgiving.....We started in Logan, and headed to Vegas on Sat....we stopped of in St. George to go to the temple and visit with some friends who just so happened to be there the same time we were. Then on to Vegas and we went to the temple there. After that we went to my Aunt and Uncles' house....Rhonda and Jim. We had tons of fun in Vegas and with them and there doggie children. We saw the strip, and Freemont...and Hoover Dam and Red Rock canyon.....then we headed out Monday morning to get to LA, California. We saw the world's biggest Thermometer on the way.....lots of dry river beds and made it to Santa Monica. We set up a tent in Malibu, and went to the Santa Monica Pier.....walked Hollywood Ave. Drove thru Belair Estates, and Beverly Hills, cruised down sunset blvd. Saw the Graumans? Chinese Theater?, Kodak Theater, and saw some look alikes including Spongebob and Spiderman who probably bought thier costumes after Halloween when they were on mark down. We found out that James has the same size foot as Arnold Swartschenager man.....minus the pointy shoe. We had some of the best seafood ever at a nice place in Malibu off the beach. We walked on the beach at night as the tide was rolling in and ran away from the Pacific as it attempted to attack us. It managed to nip my shoe, it was close. We watch 4 little birds run with the waves hitting the sand looking for a "midnight snack", it was as if they walked on water, or surfed with them. We camped in the most perfect weather ever known to me. I have never had such a perfect camping experience despite the $35 camping fee, 50 cents extra for hot water should you choose to want it to shower, and $9 a night for wireless.....Tuesday we went to the Los Angeles Temple, Newport Beach temple which is my favorite temple so far on the inside, and the San Diego temple which is my favorite temple outside still and favorite Celestial room, I wish we had seen the Newport Beach celestial room, but one day.....Then we made it to Yuma, AZ after driving through a border patrol check and a stop at McDonalds. Who knows what is next to experince on the wonderful adventure.....lots I am sure...I have lots of pictures to put up once we get, the Vegas style temples are way prettier in person than in pictures......

a new new....

A new look = a new dedication to blogging.......hopefully.

Today we both signed up for sewing classes. Monday at 5 we are going to learn how to sew...a life long lesson. And we came home with an 88 key now I can practice and get better at piano and so can James...and we can play music together....guitar and piano.

I got a call yesterday from that emergency dispatcher position I applied for back in May....I think it was May. Anyway I have to do a background that will take 4 to 5 months to finish cuz the private investigator has lots of research to do.

I also applied for the full time position of sanitation on line 4 at Pepperidge Farm. No one else applied for it, so we will see if I get it. It would be nice...I would get a little bit more hours and a higher pay...and it would last until I possibly got the dispatcher job which would pay even more and I would get benefits immediately....... So there ya go...
