President Hinckley

It is hard to believe that President Hinckley passed away yesterday. Although it was sad to hear the news, I truly am happy for him in knowing that he will now be reunited with his cute cute wife. What a fabulous man! I will always remember him for everything he taught me and for all the great work he did here on earth.

Go Pack Go

Even though the Packers lost last week, we are still fans. And Roxy just looked so cute in her Brett Favre jersey that her Uncle Ben gave her for Christmas. Go Packers!

So I decided to try out for Survivor! I just sent in my application and video today. I know there is a slim to none chance that I will actually be selected as one of the 16 contestants, but I can always hope. I figure that I have an OK chance. First of all, they have never had a stay-at-home Mom on the show before. And I have a pretty cool name. At least I think so. But you never know what they're looking for. I'll just have to wait and see. And I know some of you are thinking, "Would she really leave her little girl and not see her for 7 weeks just to be on survivor?" And the answer is yes! Hello, this is Survivor we're talking about and 1 million dollars. It would be rough, but I'm willing to sacrifice, and I already have a neighbor that said she would watch Roxy during the day and Matt would have her at night. I'm all set. But who am I kidding, I'm sure I won't get picked, but it's always nice to dream.

First and Hopefully Not the Last

So I've decided to enter the blogging world. This is my first post and for those of you that really know me, I'm kind of a procrastinator and can be pretty lazy sometimes, so hopefully I will keep up. I figured that since I'm home all day with Roxy that maybe I could find some time to post at least once or twice a month. We'll see. I'll now just update anyone who is wondering about our lives at the moment. Matt and I are living in Clearfield, UT. We bought our first house the summer of 2006. Matt is working as a quality assurance manager for Kroger Foods at the Layton frozen dough plant. We had a little baby girl on August 16, 2007. Her name is Roxy JaNae Leonhardt. She is so cute and is now 5 months old. They grow so stinkin' fast. Her favorite thing to do right now is roll, roll, roll. She loves it and does it all the time. I have started working at the daycare at the gym just 2 hours a week, mostly to keep our free gym passes. I have also started working for the Sandlot in Ogden doing Softball training, lessons, and clinics. It's nice to get out of the house now and then, and Matt is great to watch Roxy while I'm gone. He is a great dad and is loving this new adventure. And I love being a mom. It's definitely challenging sometimes, but it's all worth it.
We are keeping ourselves busy when we're not working and while Roxy is being content. Matt loves working on different projects around the house, building, sculpting, carving, and refinishing anything he can. He also works hard keeping the elders quorum in ship shape. I am serving in the primary and like to find any sports league I can play in. I just finished up a soccer league and am now playing in a volleyball league. And as soon as spring comes I'll be back into softball.
Well that's about it from here. We'll see how long it takes me to post again. Till then.
Here are some pictures of us this past little while...
