in no particular order...

1. Hello Cache Valley! After 15 months of Jed being in American falls and 12 for myself we are back!! I definitely do not miss those 2 hour commutes back to Serendipity on a weekly basis.I forget how much i love the diversity and culture in this valley.

2. USU. I think Jed is such a champ not only did he enroll back in school taking 18 credits but he did it with all A's and one B. Apparently long .....long hours at the feedlot was just the encouragement he needed.... No, but really while being in American falls Jed met some wonderful and encouraging people that have played a pivotal role in his education.

3. The BIG OFFER. Jed applied for a job with Pfizer as the Cow Calf Territory Sales Manager. They saw great potential in the Malta farm boy and offered him the job. During the background check we found out they do not like speeding tickets. SLOW DOWN. Turned out to be a blessing because 4 months later they dissolved the position.

4. We made our maiden voyage to the Winnemucca Ranch Rodeo and Horse Sale. Jed had spent a lot of time at the Zimmermans Barn in American Falls getting J.J. Silverbullet Guy ready to go. J.J. was the horse that we had had the longest, not only that but we got him as a colt, jed started and finished him. Jed was so nervous at this sale which is completely understandable he had invested a lot of time and effort into this horse, it is a very personal thing to sale a good friend like that. All-in-all JJ was the 4th high selling horse. LOOK OUT 2012.

5.Even though we hardly ever saw each other in American Falls because of c-r-a-z-y work schedules, we met some GREAT people, and had some great experiences that will help us be better and more qualified for the future.

6. COOL RUNNINGS, Park City 2011 We had the opportunity( one that I will most likely not take again) to bobsled at the Olympic Park with some of my co-workers at the Money 4 Life Center, the driver was on the USA team. It was and intense 57 sec ride.

7. One of the most memorable moments was seeing Mom and Kylee and Wylee go through the temple. I had the opportunity to be both of their escorts and wow you forget a lot of things that they go over when you first go through. So I don't know who learned more them or me but thanks for the opportunity.

8. Quality time spent with loved ones like a trip to St. George to spend Christmas with my Mom and my brother and his wife and kids, going out to Guy's little cabin and just visiting, or the week when school started and we had no place to live so Joy and Frenchy let us stay with them; surly the small and simple things mean the most.

9. Our Pearl of Great Price- Jules, oh how we love her! Julie is the sweetest person that we had the great privilege of living with till we moved back into our house. We really came to know her and love everything about her and her cozy home. Thank you for everything.

10. Unanswered prayers, yes unanswered prayers The Man upstairs really is in charge of this crazy thing called life and He knows what is best for us. Trials that turn out to be blessings and light at the end of an endless tunnel. In the mix of it all 2011 seemed crazy and hectic and now looking back I feel guilty for not giving thanks for the countless blessings we have received.
