Super Angie... Super day!

What a beautiful day we had today and yesterday.
2 days ago Todd drove up, did some skating with us for a little bit in the evening, had dinner and then spent the night at our house so that yesterday morning, him and Rick could  get up bright and early and go climb 1 of the 14,ners near our house.
It was a very very cold morning.. we're talking negative temperatures. around noon the kids and I headed to the lake and enjoyed skating on it. it was beautiful and it hAD warmed up. Mackenzie from Breckenridge came and joined me on the lake. it was so great to see her! I also met a Show skater who helped me learn a new sideways spin.

When Rick and Todd got home we headed to Breckenridge and had a lovely dinner- I have a cheeseburger.

we stayed up way too late chatting with Todd about mountains and skating and everything in between.

this morning we said goodbye to Todd. then we headed to the lake for yet another beautiful time skating.

we've had such a lovely winter break I'm really going to miss Keystone when we have to leave.

Super Angie... Going mobile!

So, here I am, on the couch, listening to a cracking fire, while blogging my phone. Woot! I will for sure get more blogging done now. :)

Christmas break had been awesome. We have gone sledding, skating, short hike, painting, gondola ride, skating Some More! I've work w Todd Gilles on choreography, which has been awesome. We have done all our work on the lake. Rick and Todd have gone ice climbing, hiked quandary and today they plan to hike another 14ner.

My dad had been here a few days, which has been so nice. We had a lovely time opening gifts and sharing laughs.

It's been very cold. -7 with a real feel of - 34!
But of  course, I love it!

I've met lots of new friends at the lake. And I've found my love of skating again. I cherish every second on the lake because I know it will soon end. It just feels so great to be active again, running programs, and having fun. I love just playing on the ice, looking at my edges, being expressive. And my new artistic program is unique, and beautiful. Wish I could skate full timer with Todd.

Brennan has been more cuddly. Dallin and tan too. Rick and I have had lots of quality time.

It's been a wonderful time.

Super birthday

Today is my 37th birthday and I feel such a change. A difference in attitude. A difference in gratitude. A difference in love and peace and contentment.

Got this fun tank top from my old coach Kellyn. Love her designs! :) :)

Life is feeling so good right now. I'm slowing down, enjoying things more. Noticing the small things. Doing more service for others. Reading my scriptures more. Having more meaningful family prayer and devotionals. I'm reaching out to others and opening up more. Life just feels good! :)

Super Angie.. 12.12.12

Yesterday, on 12 12 12, our family went to the temple and was sealed. More pictures to come later.

The weather was cold- 40s. Cloudy. Windy.

27 dear friends and family came to the sealing room.

The spirit was strong.

We are a forever family.

Rick and I are simply meant to be. We love each other more and more each day. And more then we ever loved anyone else. We compliment each other and are raising a strong family.

Our day was perfect.

I have a family here on earth.
They are so good to me.
I want to share my life with them through all eternity.
Families can be together, forever, through Heavenly Father's plan.
I always want to be with my own family, and the Lord has shown me how I can...
The Lord has shown me how I can.

Super Angie...Dallin turns 12!

I can not believe that 12 years ago, this precious boy was born. He is such a joy. I am so proud to be his mom. People tell me all the time how good he is. What a nice kid he is. He has read the book of Mormon, all on his own. He loves scouts. He loves the trombone. He works hard in school. He is nice to all- even the bullies. He helps around the house. He babysits. He does his chores without a fight. He is just an over all joy. I LOVE YOU DALLIN! Happy Birthday!

Super Angie...far behind

I am so far behind on my blogging. Its been several weeks. Here are the highlights:

Thanksgiving Party in Kindergarten.
Drove to Glenwood Springs- stayed in our favorite hotel. Kids love that water slide!
Celebrated Tanith's birthday a few times- had a party with a few little friends, celebrated the monday before her birthday at home with all her gifts- and celebrated in Colorado by eating at Knosha Steak House in Breck.
Thanksgiving in Keystone- painted ceramics, many walks to the lake, walk up keystone gulch, Thanksgiving afternoon hike to Lucy's grave. Attempt to take family picture.
Rick flew to Argentina
Had lesson with Todd Gilles
We got our date for being Sealed in the LDS Temple- 12-12-12. We are so excited.
Bought a wedding dress.
Bought Tanith a wedding dress.
Bought decorations and arranged flowers and cake and all sorts of fun for the reception.

We have been incredibly blessed. We have struggled but I have seen such blessings. I am back to skating and LOVING it. I don't skate long or hard, but its enough for me. And I take Tanith with me and she LOVES it. I really enjoy spending that time with her and its good exercise for her.
Brennan and Tanith are still going to gymnastics. They are both progressing nicely> Tanith is now in level 3. Brennan is almost ready to move out of level 1.

I'm ready for Rick to return from Argentina.
