The Prophet Joseph and his dear brother Hyrum

Those of you that know me really well, know that I have an absolute solid testimony of the Prophet Joseph. I love him dearly and I live and believe what he stood for. Thse death masks nearly took my breath away.

Friends, Friends, Friends!!

We are so lucky!! Four years ago we knew nobody in Utah, now we have an entire family there.

This is the Christensen/Harrison family. Ralph, Teresa, Myself, Alisa and Ryan. Alisa (former last name Christensen) was one of our missionaries in Ohio (she just got married last year, Ryan is her wonderful husband) We have an amazing friendship and her parents are so wonderful. When Alisa was done serving in the Ohio Cleveland Mission, Ralph, Teresa and Alisa drove to NY to see our family sealed in the Palmyra Temple. We were very, very fortunate because both of our sister missionaries were there!! I can't even begin to express how much we love both of those ladies.

Back to the we are infront of the SLC Temple, we had so much FUN that day!! All of us went to Sat. P.M. Conference together, had lunch at the church administration building and had a FUN slumber PARTY at The Christensen's home in Bountiful.

Yes, I'm going to be 35 and I still have "two" BFF, we all met while serving in the United States Navy together. Deborah lives in Mt. Joy, PA and Victoria lives in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Here's Victoria and I in the church administration building. I walked into this building and made the loudest gasping sound when I saw this picture of Christ and the apostles, it's HUGE and beautiful! Does anyone know what was announced in this building infront of the same picture on Feb. 4th, 2008?

In this picture...Chelsea (Sister Pratt), me and Kristy (Sister Kadish). Kristy totally suprised me with this one!! The story goes...she picked me up to head on down to Provo. She claimed "I have to stop and pick up something for my mom in Lehi" This is the rest of the story...

Carrie: What are we picking up?
Kristy: Oh, I don't know, something at some lady's house.

So we're driving and it's been about 15 min. and Kristy is following directions to where we're going.

Carrie: Where are we going again?
Kristy (hesitating): I don't know...I have to get something for my mom.

We pull up to this house and I was just planning on sitting in the car and waiting, Kristy says to me...Are you coming? I thought...OK, I'll come. So I get out and I say... who are these people? Kristy says "I don't know who they are" I'm thinking...she's acting weird, what's going on??!! So we walk up to the house, she rings the door bell and I noticed a package on the door with the last name of Pratt on it. So I said to Kristy "well, the last name is Pratt" She said "Oh." Then the door opens and Chelsea is standing there with a HUGE smile on her face!! I was so suprised and happy!! Both of these fine young women served in our ward and we use to have the most fun together! It was awesome to spend time with them, it was like old times...well, almost..minus the name tags and skirts!
