We took Hannah and Ashlyn back to St George at the beginning on August. Hannah had decided to be baptized a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, so Mark was able to baptize and confirm her. It was a very special day and we are very proud of Hannah and her decision. I was also very proud of Mark and the great job he did.

Our little kitty Pepper has been naughty and scratching up the furniture. We decided it was finally time to declaw her. Here's a picture of what happens to bad kitties at our house.

Summer is coming to an end, but it still feels sooooo hot here. This morning, Mark was planning to go for a run. It was 90 degrees at 7:30am, and he messed around, and didn't leave to go running outside until about 9am when it was 94 degrees. He ran for nearly 2 hours and was a sweaty man when he finished. The silly man put some red sugarfree punch in his camelpack to drink on the way. Well, it was leaking on his navy shirt, but wasn't noticable until we saw that his underwear was stained pink. Lovely. Looks like our local Sheriff Joe's inmates who really do wear pink underwear.

Mark is still looking for work. We pray daily for a lineman apprentice job for him that is appropriate for our family. He has interviewed most recently in Dallas and Kansas. He has applied for other jobs around Texas, Georgia, and Oregon. In the mean time, he is doing a great job of taking care of Makayla at home. She sure loves her daddy.

I'm still working at my daytime job 4 days a week, and then at my evening job usually once a week. I like my work, but I sure love coming home to hold, feed, and play with my baby. She is such a sweet person with a happy personality. I love being a mom. I'm excited when she meets her milestones, but it's a little sad to see her growing up so quickly.
