Kelly is the mother of 5 adorable kids--4 boys and a girl. The girl came in a package with a boy (twins).

She is active in the community having served as PTA President of a local elementary school,
on the board of the Salt Lake Mothers of Twins, as a district round-table trainer with the Cub Scouts, as a volunteer for Sidelines (a support network for Women on bed rest during pregnancy) and she and her husband are active in the LDS Church.
"And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer,
who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea,
his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to
drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation,
a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall."
In May 2005 I launched the Paperclippings blog. I have had a website by the same name since 2003 or there about. Over the last 2 1/2 years I have had some favorite entries. These posts are MY favorite entries. These are not in any particular order.
As Thanksgiving Day came to a close I sat to reflect on the day. I have much to be thankful for. I have a wonderful family, including the best hubby in the world (ok, the rest of you will just have to settle for less...LOL...ok, so he's wonderful, at any rate.) I have great neighbors. I have some pretty good friends....dang good friends, I tell ya.
I give thanks to God for all those things and all else He has given me.
...but most of all I give thanks to the turkey who gave its all for the betterment of my tummy.
Some things said around the table yesterday:
"This sure is a fowl day!"
"Let's talk turkey."
"How about we talk Greece, instead."
"You sure have a fowl mouth."
On the more serious side
We talked of Happiness, Gratitude, Hope and Faith.
Why teenagers shouldn't be allowed to trick or treat ;)
My youngest teenager still likes to go out trick or treating. He is on that fence between wanting to be a kid and wanting to be grown up. His costume was a bedraggled-hair wig...period. He carried a small cooler with the strap around his neck. Rather than say, "Trick or Treat." His plan was to say, "donations!!?, donations!!?"
We let him go out anyway because he was taking a couple of the younger boys with him.
...at least he didn't come back with a pillow case full of candy like some of our other kids.
