Well, it's official! The likelihood of the updating from the summer may have to wait until Fall Break, Thanksgiving Break, or Christmas Break! I figured I had better keep up with other happenings or I may just have to quit the blogging thing all together!

This weekend was really good!

Started off with the BYU vs. UCF football game! While it's not the same as the good 'ol college days, it's still extremely fun to be able to experience the atmosphere every now and again!

 Celebration after a touchdown!
Thanks for inviting me Genna! :) 
Saturday morning we woke up bright and early and headed over to Rosemary's to help her lay sod in her backyard! It was an extremely enjoyable morning getting to hang out with cousins and enjoy one another's company while helping Rosemary! She is the prime example of service and does so much for us! For once it was great to be able to do something for her for a change! :)
The 8 pallets of sod!
Our Project Manager (Blake) was questionable at times. The Quality Control Manager (me) had to keep him in line! Everyone had an enjoyable time bantering back and forth!

Gina Thackeray said it best, "You kids are the cream of the crop by a long shot. Your grandparents and parents have taught you well and they should all be extremely proud of your work ethic and your senses of humor. :) You rock -- and I'm proud to share your last name. :)"

I thought that was a nice compliment! Definitely proud to have the Thackeray name!  It was great to be able to do a little service! 

The funny thing was I had about a BAZILLION papers to grade and things to do and I didn't think I was going to be able to get it all done! I was stressing! Amazingly I got everything finished! That night when I got home, Genna, Holli, and Tandy helped me grade a huge majority of those papers. I was grateful for their service in helping me to get everything finished! The entire day was a huge testimony to me of the importance of service! Even when you think you don't have time to do something! Just do it! :) You will be blessed in the long run!


  1. Thanks for sacrificing your Saturday morning to help me! I LOVE you all!
    Gina just put in words what we have always known! :)
    Plus, I was thinking-- if you are Thackeray, you know the other cousins "got your back." It's always been that way, and I hope it always will.

  2. It really was a great day! And despite Blake's cruel bantering... I do believe that he would have my back if it really came down to it :) which like you said is the great thing about the Thackeray cousins! :)
