Gordon B. Hinckley

I found this on someones blog that I don't know, and thought it was cute and wanted to share it.

Gordon B. Hinckley was returning to Salt Lake City after a church assignment and when his plane arrived there was a limousine there to transport him to his home. As he prepared to get into the limo, he stopped and spoke to the driver.'You know' he said, 'I am 97 years old and I have never driven a limousine. Would you mind if I drove it for a while?'The driver said, 'No problem. Have at it.'President Hinckley gets into the driver's seat, the chauffeur gets in the back and they head off down the highway. A short distance away sat a Rookie State Trooper operating his first speed trap. The long black limo went by him doing 70 in a 55 mph zone. The trooper pulled out and easily caught the limo and he got out of his patrol car to begin the procedure. The young trooper walked up to the driver's door and when the glass was rolled down, he was surprised to see who was driving. He immediately excused himself and went back to his car and called his supervisor. He told the supervisor, 'I know we are supposed to enforce the law... But I also know that important people are given certain courtesies. I need to know what I should do because I have stopped a very important person.'The supervisor asked, 'Is it the governor?'The young trooper said, 'No, he's more important than that.'The supervisor said, 'Oh, so it's the President.'The young trooper said, 'No, he's even more important than that.'The supervisor finally asked, 'Well then, who is it?'The young trooper said, 'I think its Jesus, because he's got Gordon B. Hinckley for a chauffeur!'
Now you know why I had to post that. Hope you have a good day.

Just a quick update. I am going up to Orem on the 26th to go and see the new swim suits that Modbe is coming out with. I am so excited. I have heard rumor that there will be 20 different swimsuits. (for those of you who have never heard of Modbe, I sell modest swimsuits from modbe. )As Mckensi already stated she is just as excited as me. I am hoping to come home with a bunch for everyone to try on.Woo hoo.

Sleep Walkers

I have a set of sleep walkers in our house. Last night around 9:30 Megan came walking in our room with starry eyes and saying " can I call, can I call, call ,call. " sometimes it takes me a minute to realize there sleep walking ,it took her saying call over and over to realize that she was sleep walking. We told her to go back to bed which she immedietly did. About 15-20 minutes later Ashley came walking in,also with starry eyes, and sat down on our chair in there and just stared at us. We asked her what she was doing and she continued to just stare at us. That is when we realized that she was sleep walking to.We told her to go back to bed and she got up and walked straight to her room and proceded in her sleep.
If any of you have ideas on how to prevent sleep walking. Megan does it about every night and can sometimes do it up to 4 times a night. I am losing sleep because of all the interuptions and she is losing sleep just from sleep walking. Ashley does not do it very often. Kerry and i just laugh when they come in. I am determined to get a video of them next time. I think you would get a kick out them.

a few words of wisdom

my new motorcycle helmet

the new bike to go with the helmet

ok, so they're not ALL mine, ok--so these pictures were just sized small enough that they were easy to upload.

hey at least I'm posting! ( Kerry)

i havnt seen two posts on the warners today!


So I think that we got a challenge from Tyler on posting more. I have a really good excuse for not posting but I am no going to write it because it would be way to exciting for everyone.
We finally made it through the Holidays. I think in all we had about 9 parties at our house between Thanksgiving and Christmas. We had so much fun entertaining and having everyone over to visit.
Tyler I am a little nervous to post because you call it boring. I am sorry that I am not the author/writer like everyone else. I was lucky just to pass English.
We had an amazing Christmas. We were very blessed this season. Our kids had a wonderful present experience and were very happy with Santa. Megan and Ashley got American girl dolls and Maddie got a Emma doll , a new bike and a kitchen that she shares with Lexi. Lexi got a Dora car and dishes and the kitchen. Our whole family got a new Wii. We love it and have enjoyed playing it on our 150" movie screen.
We were able to go and get Kerry a new/used Truck yesterday. It is a ford F1-50 4 door truck. I really like it . It is really clean and looks good to.
I have gained 10 pounds back since our cruises and the holiday season and I am planning on working extra hard to work it off again. I have been back to the gym now for 2 weeks and hope to have the extra wait gone in 2 months. Hope it works. I really like being skinny.
Maddi starts sunbeams on Sunday so if you talk to her ask her how it went.
