Today Alex's new calling was announced at church ( we found out two weeks ago). We were asked not to tell anyone until it was officially announced. We were able to tell our children last night. I think most people in our ward had a pretty good idea though. F.Y.I. Don't buy a new suit and wear it the week before. Everyone in our family also had a good idea because we needed them to come to our ward so we just told them that Alex was being made a High Priest and they knew from there. Alex was already the Executive Secretary in the Bishopric and now is the Second Counselor. We have already had joking predictions from ward members he will be the next Bishop but when the Stake President mentioned maybe he will be Stake President that was not as funny. Our Stake President is young, probably late thirties, and was made Second counselor when he was very young like Alex. His Grandpa Reichert came an ordained him a High Priest, which was very special to Alex. My dad was made a High Priest a few years ago so he was also able to stand in the circle. After I was of coarse the first to get a hug and a kiss (no body else got a kiss though). Then he was set apart as the second counselor and I got another hug and kiss. That is when the stake president said that those were to make up for the times he will be away. I know I am not suppose to be proud but I can't think of another word for it.

Last week my parents, sisters (Hawni, Harmonie, Rebecca) and myself all went to my nephew Kai's boot camp graduation at Fort Knox in Kentucky. While we were there we had the chance to do so many fun things.We went to the horse races at Church Hill Downs.
We went to Glass Works which is where they do glass blowing. We didn't get any pictures of that so I put this Picture of me and Becca being "blown" by the wind.
We were able to spend one whole day with Kai after his graduation (which of coarse I cried ). We are all so proud of him. He is our oldest Nephew (I was 11 when he was born) and so he is very special to us all because we all spent a lot of one on one time with him when he was little.
Alex's birthday was awhile ago (April 4th) but I hadn't had a chance to blog about it. We woke up on Alex's birthday (now the big 30!) and it had snowed. We were sick of the cold so we took off for a spur of the moment trip to St. George. It was so nice down there. The kids swam and played ping pong. I shopped and Alex got to take a long nap. Alex wanted a Chainsaw so that is what he got. Then he decided he wanted a new camera and a motorcycle so he got those too.
