So, far a while Jeremy has wanted to get a truck. Nothing new, but a truck. He has been driving around his blue blazer from high school that was made in the 80's. It doesn't have air conditioning or a heater. He has driven it for over a year. Well, finally last week he found a truck on Craig's list and decided he wanted it. So I didn't want to get a loan and go into debt so we paid cash. I don't like our saving low. It makes me nervous. So I told him, what if the car breaks down, or the washer breaks, or something else. Truth....I hate living on a tight budget, I get nervous I will make a mistake counting. He said it will be fine. So we buy the truck. He loves the truck. Well this afternoon I go to put the clothes in the dryer I washed for my trip tomorrow and guess what I find? The clothes are sitting is dirty water. So I put them back through a rise and spin cycle, only to hear a REALLY LOUD sound and to smell smoke! I open the lid and a bunch of smoke puffs out. Great! So I call my sweet neighbor to see if I can put my clothes in her washer and thank goodness Pattie was home! So now I sit without a washer on a MONDAY morning!! Too bad I can't wash clothes in Jeremy's truck!! Gotta LOVE life.

Last weekend was such a special time. Loralie's baptism and Graham's blessing was wonderful! We had so many friends and family members there. Loralie was just glowing with excitement and the spirit. She looked beautiful in her white dress. We all had such a great time. I love occasions where the spirit is strong and Jeremy is able to use the priesthood to bless our little family. It is still hard to believe that two of our kids are baptized! Time is flying by. I have had so much fun making Loralie a baptism book for all her memories of her special day. It was such an exciting time for our family!
