San Antonio

Last month, Jonathan and I went to the San Antonio temple and then explored the city.


We planned on going down to the river walk and stumbled across the Alamo. We should have realized we were close because we were drove on Crocket Street and Bowie Street...


It was lovely walking down by the river. It reminded me of walking along the waterfront in Disneyland, minus the crowds and rides and plus a bit of humidity.


While we were eating dinner, a boat passed by with a wedding party.


My favorite part was seeing Davey Crocket with his rifle in front of a vending machine.


We can't wait to have more adventures in San Antonio!

Crazy Cars

While driving around here in Austin, we have seen some very interesting cars.



Now we know what upgrades we need to do so our car can fit in better!

Light the World

Last night, the missionaries in our ward came over and shared this Christmas video with us.


They challenged us to participate in the Light the World this month. Each day there is a different scripture about Christ and how we can serve those around us. I am excited to have a way to really prepare for Christmas and focus on the true meaning of the holiday.

You can download the calendar here!

Here is the video for today's scripture.


I would like to invite you to join me in Light the World. I know it will make this Christmas season more meaningful and will bless you and those around you.

You can get ideas for what you can do each day on Mormon.org as well as download the calendar. A website called the Small Seed also has great FREE downloads here with all of the scriptures as well.

New Adventures

I am grateful for all of the new adventures we will have here in Texas.


We already had a few like spending Thanksgiving with some new wonderful friends.


We've spent an evening in San Antonio and plan to go back and see even more.


We're slowly eating our way through the restaurants in our neighborhood and can't wait to try the new Tex-Mex place down the street from us.


I love being here and am so glad that things have worked out the way they did. We hoped for something like this, but with all of the other plans we made failing it seems unreal that it didn't happen this time. We couldn't have done it without all of the support from our friends and family over the years. Just knowing that my siblings and parents were proud of us and the sacrifices we were making helped to reassure us that we were on the right path.

It has been a hard road with many unexpected challenges along with the expected ones, but we made it. I know we are no where near done with challenges, but I'm grateful for the strength we gained over the years so we can face whatever comes our way.

Mega Desk

I am grateful that mega desk is back!


Naturally, Jonathan's side has two monitors and tons of cables while my side has more space for my projects. I really like having our desks together.
