Class Website

Well, I'm working on a website for a class right now. One of the requirements is to use a picture off of another website for ym background. Well, I made my own background! So, I'm posting it as a picture here so I can then reference it in my new website. Genius huh?

The End of An Era

Hey FamBam and Friends

The Spirit of Elijah

Hey everyone, this week I was perusing the internet and felt like researching information about our family history. I got really excited and after just a few minutes searching I found a web page put together by some distant relative (The McCuistion Family). Her line is of our great great grandfather's sister. On this website she has some history written about our ancestors that I think is really cool. Click the picture for a link to her site(the picture is of James Taylor Kirk).

As I read this history I wanted to build I place where we as a family could share our stories with each other, and a place where we could remember important events in our lives. I've started building a family tree that I hope we all can work together on. I love you all. Let's make history!

John Schmidt is Pretty Freaking Cool

Moved in and moving on

We are all settled in here in Arizona now. I finally found a job and I start Monday. The weather is already getting up to 110 degrees here, *sigh*

I was looking back on a website created by an organization called the Moregood Foundation. Its purpose is to flood the internet with positive websites about the church. One of my old mission buddies worked for them and asked me to write my testimony as an answer to a question on a website called I just happened back to it and saw something pretty awesome that made my day. You should go read it:

How do I know?

PowerPoint Blog

Well, tonight is my first night in Arizona and I don't have a job yet. Kristi is at work and so I got bored and started messing around with an idea I've had to put ideas for PowerPoint Backgrounds onto a blog. It isn't much right now and might never be, but at least it has kept me busy. Check it out. The picture is a link...Let me know what you think

Birthday + Easter - Wisdom Teeth = Crazy Weekend

Well, last weekend we got to celebrate Kristi's 23rd birthday and enjoy general conference with my Mom and Kristi's Dad! What more could you ask for right?

Not to be out done, my birthday the following weekend would be one for the record books...Friday morning at 10:15 I lay in a chair with laughing gas watching the Incredibles from a TV hanging on the ceiling. Luckily, my mouth gave the Dentist enough trouble that I got to watch the whole thing. Getting your wisdom teeth out isn't the most fun thing in the world; however, I do get to eat jello and pudding all day. That same day, Kristi and I had a million errands to run. I couldn't let the fuzz of having my teeth cut out slow me down.

Saturday I felt the effects. My face is pretty swollen, but I'm surviving (and obeying the doctors orders: just for you mom). Actually, the highlight of Saturday was when the dentist called to check on me. That made me feel good. Today, I share the celebration of my birthday with Rachel, but with the Savior. I mean, the Lord's day isn't the best time to think about yourself. I did get a present from Rachel. Her and David got me the Dark Knight on DvD. Kristi and I plan on having dinner with some of my friends later on tonight. So, all in all, things are good. I just need to lose the puff in my face.
