Future of Peace

"What kind of existence can we hope for? Those who come unto Christ, repent of their sins, and live in faith will reside forever in peace. Think of the worth of this eternal gift. Surrounded by those we love, we will know the meaning of ultimate joy as we progress in knowledge and in happiness. No matter how bleak the chapter of our lives may look today, because of the life and sacrifice of Jesus Christ, we may hope and be assured that the ending of the book of our lives will exceed our grandest expectations. 'Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him' (1 Corinthians 2:9)."

- Dieter F. Uchtdorf

2 MONTHS!!...& 2 days

It is true...
Marriage gets better and better.
It is amazing how blessed we are to have each other. To live together. To talk about things we care about together. To laugh together. To cry together. To learn together. To be silly together. To feel God's Love together.
I am the Happiest woman alive.
He is wonderful.
Life is good.

*Pictures were taken on Newport Beach, CA ...Oh so fun. What good times these are. :)

Dear Paige,

Spring Renewal

Spring has come! And boy isn't it BEAUTIFUL! Along with Spring we have "renewed" some of the BEST FRIENDSHIPS with friends that we have not seen in a while. ...
Ryan...Gone on a mission to Mexico
Paige....It has just been a while
Hannah......Is going to be a midwife so she is pretty busy

Amidst busy lives, it is always nice to spend some time with GOOD friends.
I mean what is more fun than doing "this" (notice the picture below?) with friends.

Or what is more fun than being with friends, watching friends perform at Guru's?....(Steven, Jesse, Nate excellent Job)
And what is more fun than being with friends to go to friends weddings? (Congratulations next door neighbor Cameron on the big day, she is beautifuL!)

To all the friends out there, WE LOVE YOU! You make life so enjoyable!

We're Back!

We spent a wonderful fun family filled week or so in California, and absolutely had the time of our lives. We...
Played Prince and Princess....
WE got lots of Sunshine...(Um we both are kinda whitey's but yes we got some sun...)
We visited Zach's sister Ashley and her husband Hunter, and their daughters Maya, Chloe and Lexi.....
We went and saw "How to train your dragon" and REALLY liked it. (very symbolic and insightful movie :)
Just hung out with the girls...They are absolutely adorable. These two have such fun and bubbly personalities, and could talk and laugh with you for hours.
WE drove Hunter's cool black he is really nice to let us do so...look closely in the picture Calvin ( Zach's brother) can be seen...
WE left a mustache on a pillow in our hotel. ( Story coming soon...)
WE saw this beauty at California Adventure. Lydia: "Does she like it because it looks like a pony tail?" Kylie: "I do not know? Think of washing it in the shower?" followed by awkward glances...
WE saw the REAL Peter Pan at Disney Land. Disney got the name wrong it is really Zach Pan.
WE played with Little Eva Kate, ( Sister Macie's Daughter) who LOVED disney land. wow. I think she is Disneyland's number one fan.
YOU can see by THIS picture...
WE saw my second favorite flower, THE POPPY, scattered beautifully around California Adventure.
My first Favorite flower is hands down the SUNFLOWER...But yes Mr. Poppy you are close behind.
I was given a VOLUNTEERED foot massage by KATELYN (My favorite "other family member" and LYDIA (My little lid the squid sis who I love oh so much) Thanks gals the feet were sure achin after 3 days of theme park fun!
WE, Katelyn and I, Were so fortunate to have the tip of our heads dunked into this little stream thing at Cali. Adven. Thank YOU Zach, and Lydia, who picked us up like a plank of wood and proceeded with a simple dip of the noggin. (THis was actually quite funny if you could have seen the process)
I do not know why my family gets a kick out of making "serious/angry" faces in pictures? I guess its cool? ha. You are looking at a long standing FINLINSON FAMILY TRADITION. Every family picture we have taken, we take at least 1 picture with faces like this...
This is HAYDEN. My AWESOME Brother. Everyone should have a brother like him.
WE saw live singers walking down the street as we sat and took a break....
WE saw how enchanted California Adventure's is at night when you can go on rides with no lines and see beautiful lights!

Above is the 2 time I rode on Tower of Terror since 2001. Zach and I are in the back right...I do not know how our arms and hands got like this?
THIS was the 1st time I rode tower of terror since 2001. I was terrified. On the first drop I grabbed the man
THE FAVORITE UNLCE ZACH...No kidding he is. Eva and Eden both ADORE him. He plays with them like there is no tomorrow...Both girls instantly knew his name and REMEMBER it. They can see a picture of him and say "Zach". Its great being married to the "favorite unlce" does that make me the Favorite aunt?....
Stay tuned for MORE pictures from Trent and Nikki's Wedding @ the Newport Beach Temple, Pictures at Newport Beach and a 15 passenger van filled with people with mustaches!

WE are off to DISNEY LAND!!!

It has been the BEST day.

WE slept in.
WE ate candy before breakfast.
WE danced in the car to beatles music.
WE ate German Pancakes with Chocolate.
WE are now loading up a 15 passenger van to go to DISNEY LAND with my family, and then are meeting up with Zachery's fam later on in the week.

Stay posted,
WE will be back with some wonderful pictures, and I already have some great pictures and stories to share from last few days.


April Fools...Is for fools.

This is what I told Zach with a pregnancy test...
and then guess what I told him next...

He did not believe me in the first place, because April Fools and Kylie definitely belong in the same sentance. He was suspicious the whole day, So when I showed him a fake pregnancy test and told him that I had the greatest news, he kind of turned red (Sign of a "yes this could be true" and "no it is APRIL FOOLS") and... No I am not pregnant. But I did get some people pretty excited!

Good April Fools.
