This photo was taken the first time Sister Crook (L) and Sister Mayle (R) came to our house.  Their personalities were perfectly captured :)  The Sisters are called to serve an 18 month mission with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.   Sister Crook is about 3 months into her mission and Sister Mayle has about 5 weeks left in her mission. When the time comes, it will be difficult to say 'Good-bye' to both of them. 

I am so grateful and thankful that Heavenly Father placed the Sisters in our lives.

The Day After...

Political signs are coming down, the ads on tv and radio have subsided, some are happy and others are not.  I am so thankful of the outcome and am looking forward to see what happens after the swearing in's take place January 3, 2015.

Hopefully there will be a small breather of political influx before the 2016 elections...but I doubt it.

I already have my eye on a potential presidential candidate and I believe he will do a great job!  Who is this person? Dennis Michael Lynch !  Check out his website.  You can also find him on YouTube as well as Facebook

Who do you have your sights on?
