This is what happens when you let 2 little buddies loose with fudge pops at night. Cassidy had a blast with her friend Mason.

Paul's Baptism

Paul and his home teacher Mike Pierce.

Drago Family.
Our brother in law Paul got baptized on August 22nd this year. Credit goes to his home teacher Mike Pierce. It's an amazing story. Mike keep stopping by every month as a home teacher and finally got in the door. My sister in law and brother in law started taking the discussions. Sina came back into activity and Paul decided to be baptized. We couldn't be happier and are sure that Darren's mom is thrilled. The baptism was awesome!!!

Heaven on Earth Food Drive

Some of the food we collected.
I've been going to Interfaith Council for Temecula/Murrieta area. They had a speaker there talking about the Heaven on Earth Food Drive. There has been such an economic hardship in our area lately that the food banks were near empty. So they had people organize food pick ups in their neighborhoods and drop them off on August 8th to fill the food bank. So I did one in my neighborhood and also with in my ward. We got a good amount of food and I dropped it off to the location above. It was great for my kids to participate and realize the blessings we have in our lives.

Malachi Turns 7

This year for Malachi's party we had a swim party. It was a lot of fun. The weather was perfect for it. The kids swam, ate pizza and icecream bars. After the party Malachi got an Orange smoothie he had been asking for. He loves smoothies. Can't believe my boy is 7 already!
