It's NOVEMBER 2018

Another Halloween in the Books.  Tatum and Connor had a great evening !!!

We have not sold our home and we're trying to be patient but Im afraid we are on the wrong side of a bad market for selling.  The home we want in St. George is not selling either so I guess that is good.  We are kinda in Limbo right now.  Still needing to get out of debt and pouring $ into high interest rate loans.  We will sell PARK CITY after the ski season is done and hopefully sell South Jordan and Dixie Down's and then we'll have enough money to buy anything we want.... Hopefully.  We will just have to wait and see.  Stay Tuned.

 We went to the Baby blessing of this little cutie, Bennet Chad Cox, it was a beautiful day.
 Tatum's First day of preschool, she is soo ready and really loves it.
 She loves her school and is growing up so fast and is smart as a whip.
 This is her riding her great grandpa's Green horse. She loves it.
 Cute Wyatt and Sarah
 Tatum's new bed that she loves

 preschool fieldtrip
 This is a place in St. George that we would love to buy, Good Price, Brand new, Excellent  floor plan ,very secluded, and private.  Right next door to our Dixie Down's Community.  We have put our South Jordan home on the market and see if we can sell it.  Therefore getting out of debt and downsizing some more.  It is a very scary decision and we will just see if things fall into place.and if they do , it was meant to be and if not , well we will stay up here and try to manage our horrible variable HELOC loans that we took out in order to buy St. George, Graystone and Park City,  Park City is making good money right now and could prove to be a nice nest egg to augment our retirement.  ONLY TIME WILL TELL, we may have missed our opportunity for a sale this time of year and the market is not as good as it once was.  I love this place but it's time to simplify some more, We have lived here for 14 years and out place is beautifully done.  I'm TORN.  Mo is doing good and we have been so blessed.  We are looking forward to many more years together.
This is what Tatum wants to be for halloween,  I have made her costume and her mom made a hat, and I;ll post the real picture when she goes, this little girl looks a lot like Tatum.

Time of Transition and Decisions

We are looking into options because the interest rates are hiking and because we took out a variable HELOC loan to purchase the properties from Dad Told's Trust, we have become in debt.

WE NEED to GET OUT OF DEBT!!!.  While we were in St. George the past month, we came upon a piece of Property right next to Dixie Downs which is a 55 & over community that has built a row of Brand new homes which is the right price , the right square footage and we REALLY REALLY like the Floor plan and Privacy , seclusion  etc.

 We made a decision to put our South Jordan Home on the market and hopefully sell it and buy down there and live permanently.  It is Now Oct. so the timing isn't the best but we will try it.  I am torn because we would have to down size a lot and either sell or DI a lot of our furniture etc etc.  So we will see.  We may loose that Property in St. George before we can sell this. ?????  Only time will tell.
We have lived here for 14 years and love it but it's time to get out of Debt once and for all.

We have been purging clothes and items that and our home looks really nice.  So hard to know what is right.  I will trust in the Powers that be and if it is meant to be, things will work out.  It sure stresses me out.

Morris is doing well but continues with some issues that have changed some things about him.  I am so grateful he has come through as well as he has.

On an other note I will catch up on some pictures and things we have done as we go into fall.

End of Summer 2018

Yesterday was Kortney's 40 birthday!!! I can't believe it!!! of course , she was working both jobs so we didn't celebrate ..  We did see her for a minute in-between jobs.  Connor has started 6th Grade and Sierra started 10th grade at a new High School, West Jordan, the one her mom is working and she is on the Soft Ball team There.

They are my only grandkids in school right now.  Adyson will be taking college courses and Tatum with start preschool in Sept.

Mo is still getting stronger and stronger and will graduate from cardiac rehab this week.  YEA!!!!

Abbi had their 4th baby, Bennet   Now she has twins , Calvin, Matthew, age 19 months and Anna Rose age 5.  The pictures of the New Baby is down the blog a bit.  These kids are each a miracle and Abbi  and Chad count their blessings even though their lives are really busy right now.

This is Connor ready for 6th Grade.  He is growing up so fast.

 Tatum loves to run through the sprinklers.
 she has spent lots of time with her "House Cow" at Gardner Village Farm.

 She feeds the sheep, alpaca's and goats and horses and pigs and chicken.  She is a regular farm girl
 had a wonderful Tucker reunion thanks to the Jensen Girls.  Even uncle Owen came what a fun time.
 Back at the Farm for me and Tatum

 First Day of High School.  This beautiful Sierra!!!
 Adyson's last day at Smith's Job to another job.  Below is Tatum going on a horse ride.
More farm pictures of this cutie who cannot get enough!! She has horses right out side of her back door in Syracuse and spends lots of time talking to the horses.

This youngest Grandchild is getting so big and grown up.  Talks a mile a minute and is so full of fun dancing and go go go all the time.

 They went to Dynosaur land in Vernal, Utah
    Cute Baby Bennett Chad Cox.  This baby was a total surprise and was conceived all a natural.

Lola is getting weaker and weaker and it breaks my heart to watch her suffer.  She is pretty much home bound and we try and get down as often as possible.  As I look back it has been a fun summer even though Morris was tied down to Doctor Appointments and Rehab.  We did manage to do some fun things.

We are so grateful for his health and recovery and look at life with a whole new perspective and don't take anything for granted as we go forward loving every minute we have with family and friends.
