***************Lucille's BBQ*****************

We got a giftcard to Lucille's BBQ Smokehouse in Rocklin and we went to eat there tonight. WE LOVED IT! The food was wonderful and the service was superb! We will be going back...

They bring you warm towels to wipe your hands at the end of your meal- oh so refreshing! :)

They serve your drinks in a glass jam jar.

And they have very good fruit cobbler... and some delicious ribs and pulled pork.

Christmas 2008

We had a wonderful last few days. Jeff surprised me with a thoughtful gift he picked out on his own. He got a new golf bag and I got the clock I REALLY wanted from my brother-in-law who pulled my name for Christmas (thanks Rob!!)My parents spoiled us with Wii stuff- we got Rockband and Wii Fit. We have been playing Rockband a lot and I love playing the bass and singing (as long as no one is really listening to me!).

We had fun watching our little nephew Isaiah open gifts and he was so excited. We were glad we got to see him and Phill and Jeannine from Utah. We ate so much good food made by both our parents and enjoyed the company of our families.

The day after Christmas I braved the crowds at the mall and went shopping with my two sister-in-laws and my mother-in-law. It was a madhouse. Jeff went out with his brothers and played 18 holes of golf. He loves golf and he was excited to use his new bag. That night we went and saw "Seven Pounds" with Will Smith. It was an interesting movie that really made you think. Jeff and I liked it.

On Sunday we were able to take time to sit back and realize how many blessings we have and think about our goals for 2009. We can always improve and become more like our Savior (and we are making it a goal to do that!). Happy New Year!! Have a fun 2009.

D&C 50:5

"But blessed are they who are faithful and endure, whether in life or in death, for they shall inherit eternal life."

We have been truly blessed as we continue to put our faith and hope in the Lord. In the last week we have received two checks in the mail from Sac State and American River for refunds on tuition. We have had no idea we were getting these and we really don't know why we got refunded- I even tried calling the school and all they could tell me was that we overpaid. The Lord works in mysterious ways and I am so grateful that we are being watched over and blessed in so many different ways.
