Five years ago I was dating Chantry. I had just finished up one year of school and was getting ready to move to Snow College. I hung out a lot with my friend Keshia that summer. We had a lot of fun. We did some funny things like ride wheelchairs up and down main street, ride our bikes to Comfort Inn from Keshia's house (which was a long ways), we sold some drugs (which was only sugar in a bag) to some guy standing outside the bar. I had planned on finishing my associates at Snow and then go on to another college to get my Master's in accounting. By the time I was done with that second year in accounting, I decided that is not what I wanted to do. I had not really thought a whole lot more about the future. Things were so uncertain then.
Five years from now I see myself being a stay at home mom to two (maybe three) kids. I see myself doing almost exactly what I am doing now, but hopefully making more money doing it. I love transcribing, and hope it works out that I can do it long term. Channer will be 6 1/2 by then. CRAZY!! I guess I will be dropping him off and picking him up from Kindergarten. I hope by then I could maybe be making enough money that Chantry can take some time to start his own business, like he has always wanted. I see us being more active in the church and me at least taking my kids to primary, if nothing else. I love not knowing what is going to happen, but I would love to see a glimps into the future. I wish I would be able to know what the world would be like for teenagers and kids. It is so scary to think of having children and raising them in such a world. In five years, I also want to think that I would be closer to my dad (maybe that is more of a goal). I hope to have made a few new friends, while at the same time getting closer to the ones I already have.
Last, but not least, in five years I see Chantry and I being more in love than ever. I feel like I fall more in love with him everyday. I love him so much more than the day I married him, and I never thought that was even possible. Hopefully by then we can go on a cruise or some kind of vacation, just the two of us. I have always wanted to go on a romantic vacation.

Sarah and Yumei Dancin
Malia and I
Saturday we woke up to a yummy breakfast that Sarah and Mandy cooked, breakfast caserole, crossiants, and yummy fruit. We had such a great day. I dont know where the time went though. Heidi did my makeup and I did her hair.
Heidi and I after make overs Sarah Opening her presents
We scrapbooked most of the day. We played some games throughout the day and just enjoyed every ones company. Malia and Pateresa made some yummy chicken tortilla soup that night and then we played "What if..." and "Have you ever.." Lets just say I may know more than I want to about my sisters now, but it was fun!! We took Yumei "snipe" hunting at about two in the morning. Malia freaked out because a deer ran out in front of us, and then everybody was just trying to scare her more. It was way fun. Everybody started going to bed and Malia and I stayed up until about 4.
Sarah and Heidi playing Guitar Hero!
Sunday came way too fast. We had to be out of the cabin by 11:00. So we just cleaned up and got ready to leave. Most of us went and ate lunch at the Bowery before leaving. It was so hard to say goodbye after such a good weekend.
All the girls!!
I got all my sisters and me!
P.S. Although I was having so much fun and did not want to go home, I could not wait to see my boys!!

Saturday morning Chantry went rabbit hunting and my mom, Channer, and I just got ready and ate breakfast. As soon as Chantry got home we went to the Renaissance Fair. It was a little weird, but fun, I guess. Then we went and had lunch at La Fiesta. On the way home, we saw this Jeep at a yard sale and so my mom bought it for Channer...only $10, can't beat that and Channer loves it.
At 2:00 my mom and I went and saw Fiddler on the Roof at the Shakesperian Festival. It was sooo good. I cant believe I have lived here for 4 years and have not gone to one play.
After the play, we went and met Chantry and Channer at the car show. They had a lot of booths and some awesome cars to look at, so it was a lot of fun. We just went home and ate dinner, but we could not end our day without going to Dairy Queen to get a blizzard.
Sunday morning we went to the park. I tried all morning to get Channer to take a picture with my mom, but he wouldnt so I had to trick him and take his picture in the back seat of our truck.
We went to Park Discovery and Channer loved it. There were so many things for him to do there, we could spend a whole day.
He even got dad to swing with him.
For lunch we met my Uncle Ron and Aunt Crys at Applebees. It was really nice to get to visit with them. My Uncle Ron wanted to take us to show us The Happy Factory, so we went and got a tour and went home. It was already time for my mom to leave. I am sure glad I get to spend next week with my mom too, or I would have had a really hard time with her leaving this weekend. It was a mom weekend that was way past due!!
