We went to see FIREPROOF tonight. It is a good movie but it is one that I thought they would show at church or something. They have the book that goes with it at Sams club. It should really help a marriage. The book is like a workbook. It is a good see for couples but leave your kids at home unless they are married or getting married or old enough to get married. Great flick. Sounds Mormon but it isn't.

I had an interesting day yesterday. Joe, my neighbors, Chris and I went to a gun store and sat in a class all day. What was the class about? Well, it was a class you have to take to get your permit to carry a concealed weapon. Now, I am able to carry a gun on my person as long as it is concealed. The guy teaching the class was a little on the extreme side but I saw his point of view. We learned the laws and rights that we have and the rights of others. We also had to shoot the weapon(s) that we wanted to have the right to carry. We had to be able to hit the target in the right spot. It was fun. I have guns in my home. They all have locks on them or are locked up. My children are taught the proper use and handleing of guns. I believe it is my right to own them. They had a video that interviewed criminals and they asked if the right to bear arms should be taken away. Their response was no that would make it way to easy to rob and harm others. They also said that criminals would get guns no matter what. It was great to take the class even if I wasn't getting my CCW. I do have my own gun it is a P22 which is a 22 automatic pistol. Joey also went to the class but it was to renew his CCW.
After the class we went to Bass Pro Shops. That is a great store. Then we ate at the Silverton. We ate a wonderful meal at the steak house in there. It wasn't to expensive and the food was great. They have a hugh fish tank full of awesome fish. A mermaid even comes and swims in it, she is so cute with the kids that watch.
Friday night I got to see the Osmonds. We stayed for a meet and great. They are a great family. I saw them before the preformance in the casino as we were walking through. They put on a fantastic show. I really hate it when the groupies get up and go stand at the front of the stage and swing their bums. Most of them have larger bums than when they were teenagers (mine included). It makes it hard to see the show. I got my picture taken with the Osmonds. I remember when I was much younger they used to always come to the Tropicana chapel and my ward when they were in town. Oh such memories.

It is quite (for lack of a better word) amusing that people think that the churches stand on abortion means it is pro choice. The choice is whether you will or will not have sex to get pregnant. In an article in the Oct. 2008 Ensign it states "When the controversies about abortion are debated, "individual right of choice" is invoked as though it were the one supreme virtue. Tat could only be true if but one person were involved. The rights of any one individual do not allow the rights of another individual to be abused. In or out of marriage abortion is not solely an individual matter. Terminating the life of a developing baby involves two individuals with separate bodies, brains and hearts. A woman's choice for her own body does not include the right to deprive her baby of life--and a lifetime of choices for that child." How simple is that? Incest and rape it says " this tragedy is compaunded because an inocent woman's freedom of choice was denied. In these circumstances, abortion is SOMETIMES considered advisable to preserve the physical and mental health of the mother. Abortions for these reasons are also RARE!!! No where in any doctrine of the church does it state anything about favoring pro choice !!!!

I can not believe the people that are Mormons that believe women should have the right to choose. I don't care how anyone votes but to say an abortion is okay really appalls me! I could have been aborted. It is sickening to think someone could believe that. I am so upset! What kind of person could think that! Maybe they should also kill the old people that don't contribute to society! I am so upset I can't even think. Some of these people I have looked up to and regarded them as good members of the church! It is impossible to have a testimony of our church and believe in abortion (in certain circumstances). My friend at 24 birthed a downs symdrom child since then she has adopted 3 more. These are those children that some think should have been aborted! How dare you think that! I should have been aborted, how dare you! A child from rape aborted? Give it up for adoption. I know people who have had a child from rape (which you are not likely to conceive when raped) and by the time they birthed that child it was loved!

I don't care who a person votes for that is their opinion! I know who I am voting for, the better fo two evils out there. The one for this country not for Africa. The one whose wife doesn't blatenly hate white people. The one who has some experience not just a few days. No , if I had a choice I would vote for someone else but there is no one else. I am not pro war but I am pro USA.


Wow it has been a long time since I blogged and a lot has happened. Tim is a District Leader. He said not to many new missionaries are there to train. They come out but don't stay long because they miss their Mommies. His words. He is doing great and a missionary that just returned from there said he was a favorite missionary. All the missionaries want to serve with him.
We had a family reunion at Lake Powell. Most of my kids were there. We also had a famiy reunion with Joes family. We had to rent a houseboat because ours wasn't working and we got a great deal. We rented a 70' one for the same price as a littler one. That was great as we needed the room. Joes mom came with us. His family was meeting on the beach Friday and Saturday. Joe decided that he would go on Saturday. We asked his mom what she wanted to do and she said that she would go on Saturday even though we offered to take her over on Friday. We went from Wed to Wed. It was a great time. I didn't want little kids running in and out of the houseboat and getting sand all over. I guess that started a big family problem. Silly!!!!! We had a great time. It was beautiful except at night with the bugs.
We went to the temple in St George the other day. Joes brother and his wife and 2 kids were sealed. My mother in law said her prodigal son went through the temple. He has had a hard life. It is Jenna and Sabrinas bio father. I had some issues with him and didn't know if I wanted to go. Then I told Joe maybe we should go and it would help mend some feeling with the family and we would just sit and blend in. Then when I got in the temple and saw him in the chapel, I had a very peaceful feeling come over me. I am not responsible for his problems. I am at peace with him. I have overcome my animosity towards him. No we will never be best friends. I am happy for him. He has a great wife. I don't know her well but she seems to be a very good person and good for him. I wish him the best. I have a hard time writting my feelings so I hope this came out the way I meant it. It was great seeing some of Joes family.
Then Wed. night my "sister" passed away. She was diagnosed with cancer about 3 weeks ago and it took her life. I can't believe she is gone. I mourn for her children and husband. She has 10 kids. Some are still in their teens. She said she would still help Scott with the children. I leave for Denver to her funeral next week. My neighbors are coming. They have met her a few times. We were at Sturgis together. I love her and will miss her.
