E.T.??

For my previous post (World of Color)  I was taking pictures of the clouds and sky.  At one point the sun went behind the clouds so I wanted to see what would happen.  This was the result.  No photoshop.  These are straight of the camera! Pretty cool I thought.  Keep in mind this was the middle of the day with a bright blue sky. They look E.T.

Look close, in this first one you can see the outline of the sun behind the cloud on the left side.

So pretty.

Photobucket
I was sitting at the Soccer game and Mike called and said, "Tiff! do you have your camera?"  (of course!)  He told me to head to a certain road below the temple and I would find a beautiful view of the temple & moon.  He wasn't kidding.  I wish this even did the view justice.
P.s. have you been to the temple lately?  If not, you should go.  It is so wonderful to take a break and feel of the peace that the temple brings.  

Back on Campus.

We were privileged to have this beautiful display of pictures on campus.  You may have heard about it.  A photographer from Arizona prepared this work for the Mesa Arizona Temple dedication.  he used real people.  These are photographs, not paintings.  Its truly amazing.  We enjoyed the display so much.  From Christ's birth to the Resurrection.  Check out the video below.  It is a slide of the different photographs, with a beautiful song to accompany them.
For all you here in Rexburg, you don't wanna miss it! It is on display in the Taylor until tomorrow (Friday!)

Since this is a recording of a recording it doesn't look as good.  For the real deal you can go HERE.

While we were on campus, my only request...Donny just shook his head and smiled :)
Photobucket
This used to be my home.  I probably spent more hours here than at home.
Photobucket
Even though its only up the hill I haven't been to campus.  I love this place. It still has a piece of my heart.

Soccer/Football

Its times like these that I get confused.  He's a British citizen playing his own game in America.  So when I refer to him playing do I call it Soccer or Football?
Beautiful sunset!

Brrrrr....

That's him with the ball...standing still.
Photobucket
And running after the ball.

We both love intramural sports at BYU-I.  Donny and I each have our claim to fame on a Championship T.  All you BYUI peeps know what I am talking about.  Donny won one for futsal (in-door soccer) and golf (remember?), and I won one for Dodgeball...seriously  Back in the day Carla W. & I did all the intramurals  we could.  It was quite fun!.

H-A-Double L-O-W-Double E-N

Photobucket
love, love, love, Halloween!  Rach and I got together for a "Martha" night.  This is our kind of pumpkin carving.
Everytime I go to spell Halloween that song from grade school that Mrs. Peterson taught us comes into my head.  Anyone remember that one...."H-A-Double L-O-W-Double E-N Spells Halloween."

Battle of the Dance

The MC was hilarious.
Photobucket
This guy was one of my favs.
Photobucket
Mike did really well.
Photobucket
Mike grew up in Burley, he was like a big brother.
Photobucket
Mike & Donny served in the same mission.
Photobucket
We didn't meet through Mike.  But Mike was happy we met.

A few pics...

to hold you over.  For some frustrating reason my computer will not read my camera.  So until I get this problem under control...enjoy these, they were already loaded onto the 'puter' (that is what D calls it.) before the curse began.

Conference Weekend

Wasn't conference wonderful?  We had such a great weekend in Burley, and conference on Saturday and Sunday topped it off.  I am so excited to get the transcripts and get to work!! I There were so many uplifting and inspiring words spoken.  It is easy to take for granted the fact that we have a prophet on the earth today to counsel and guide us with the will of the Lord. One of the biggest miracles in my life, and I would call it a miracle, was sustaining President Thomas S. Monson as the Prophet.  The conviction I felt of his divine calling, and the instant love and devotion I felt toward him is a miracle to me.  A miracle that God loves his children and has not left us alone on this earth.  What neat men these are that lead the Church and what great lives they have lived.  Their examples alone are motivation for me to do better and be better.  I appreciate the evidence in my life that God loves me.  
There are so many things I have to be grateful for, being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is among the greatest.  

I've done a search on LDS.org for a quote by President Monson about living for today!  As I searched the quote, right off the first page of search results were ten different talks he where he had said it.  Again this conference he stated this inspiring quote of living for today...it must be a very important one! Especially important to him.  If there has been anyone who has lived for the day, it is President Monson.  His service and devotion to love and life has blessed so many lives.  Finding joy in the journey now.  It is the last talk in the Sunday Morning Session.

"Here Horsey, Horsey!"

It was rather rainy this morning in Burley so the horses were hiding out.

Modeling.

D's sis needed a few pics of 'reading the Book of Mormon', for a project she was working on.  So I got my top models :), two of my best friends, and we went to work!  
I thought they turned out great.  These two did great - one is 3 months pregnant to other is 5...you'd never know.

So Proud, but not prideful proud :)


Emily brought this to my attention...I had to pass it on.  
Forbes recently ranked BYU-I among "America's Best Colleges"!!  I was excited to see this, but even more thrilled when it outranked any school in Idaho or Utah, minus BYU.  But the best part...BYU ranked 214th, with BYU-I not too far behind at 245.  Why is this the best part?! Because sooo many times I get funny looks when people hear I go to BYU-Idaho.  As Emily put it, "...the wrinkled nose and the 'How did you like that?'" in regards to our schooling here! Well I'm proud to say we love it here in the Burg.  We love BYU-Idaho, and thats what makes Rexburg great. 
Considering there are nearly 3,000 four year universities in the US, thats pretty good!  

You can see the full listing here.
