Relief Society slaughters the Young Women

Last night, Mar. 17th, was our 2nd Annual R.S. & Y.W. Basketball game, in Vanderhoof, BC. This year, we Relief Society had "NO MERCY" for the Young Women. Last year, we, R.S. were whipping the YW's butt, and then gave them the game in the last few seconds, beating us by 1 pt. Below you'll see the score of how the Young Women got "beat down" this year, by us, 'oldies', as the ref., Austin Mueller, called us. We all had tons of fun and some serious series of laughs. Gotta thank Austin for doing an awesome job with ref-ing the game, even though he did call some unnecessary calls on us, 'oldies', and a huge thanks to our fans & supporters who came out to watch us "relive" our B-ballin' days.
The Final Score: Relief Society 69 - Young Women 52
"The All-Star Relief Society Team 2009"
Back Row: Deni Jacobsen, Ginger Westbrook, Cori Mueller, Karen Kochel, Shawna Johnson, Tyanna Poitre, Kristine McKee, Darlene Fawcett, Melissa Albertson, Dawn Mountifield, Kerri Lybbertt, Kelsie Ingram, & Wendy Roblyer.

Can you say, GOOFY!

Way to Go, Ladies! I had a blast playing with you all last night, thanks for the good time. Look forward to seeing you out on Tuesdays, back on the court @ 1:00 pm.

My Sister, My Best Friend, My HERO!

Meet my sister, Naiaga (Lisa) Purcell Magalei. She is one of my Heros. She is an amazing person and I love her. I just want you to get to know her for how I know her. I just thought I'd list on here her attributes and talents. My sister has been there for each and everyone of us, her siblings, as well as for our parents. After 3 yrs. of being married and staying with my parents to help them out, she has FINALLY left home. She and her husband, Spencer have made the "Big Move" to Lehi, Utah. My sister through the years have helped us all in some way or another. I'm not going to number the things that my sister's done, b/c there are many, but here are a few.

The Things Lisa has done:

Took care of our mom during her times of surgery.

Helped out mom & dad with payments & living arrangements.

Helped my brother Dicky, and I, financially throught out our missions.

Helped out big time, financially, in every siblings wedding -especially mine.

Takes good care of her husband, Spencer with his needs and injuries.

Always helping mom and dad out when they ask for ridiculous "faalavelave's".

Always spoiling her nieces and nephews.

The first of our family to have graduated from University, (Cal State Dominguez Hills).

Taught P.E. and coached volleyball at Bell HS, in Bell, CA. for 10 years.

She must have been in about 10+ weddings before her very own.

She married Spencer Sale Magalei on Feb. 25, 2006 and sealed to him on Oct. 11, 2008.
She was always there for me over "stupid-teenage" break-up's.

She just received a coaching position for the Volleyball team of Mt. Timpanogas HS, Utah.

and much, much more.

The things Lisa likes to do:

Spend Money on her nieces and nephews

Take pictures of her and Spencer. [ain't no joke]

Shopping! [the girl can spend. ha, ha]

Getting her hair done, and having pedicures.

Dance, dance, dance.
Sports! [Volleyball & Basketball]

Play & spend time with her nieces and nephews.
Talk on the phone. [She's always calling me, if I don't call her]

Laugh! [I love her laugh].

Give her nieces and nephews hugs and kisses.

Being with her #1, ME! (LOL!)

Eat out, especially at L&L. [ha,ha]

Cook! She's a great cook.

Blog! She's awesome at it. [She helped me do the changes to mine]

Play computer games. [A time waster of hers.]

Drive like a crazy woman. [She really is a good driver] Utah, Beware!

Lend a listening ear. [If you or the topic is worth listening to.]

Make people laugh.

and much more.

Lisa is:
A Spirit Daughter of God,
The daughter of Alapati & Tauaipolu Purcell,
A beloved sister to Robert, Dicky, and me,
A favorite aunt amongst her nieces & nephews,
A loving wife,
A teacher,
A coach,
A mentor,
Fun to be with,
Easy to get along and to please,
A best friend,
Stubborn (sometimes),
I love my sister! I am so thankful to have her as my sister, and my one and only sister and true friend.. My life is and has been greatly blessed to have a sister such as her. I don't know what I would do without her and what my life would be if I didn't have her as my sister. My brothers and I are very fortunate to have her in our lives. I'm sure my brothers would agree. And I know that our parents are very grateful to have had her.

Love you, Lisa!

My Home, Back In Order!

There you have it! My kitchen and home is back in order. I thought since I had my home back in order I thought I'd give you a little tour of my home through this post and the following one or two posts, so I hope you enjoy it.

My counter, how it is and should always be. But as you previously saw, is not like it at all times, but I strive to have it that way most times.

My kitchen at it's best.

My dining area. Don't mind the chairs, one of these years we'll get a real nice set. Maybe order a "True North" brand one through "Upon The Shelf", (winks). This set will do for now.

Letting my house go to crap!

Ok, so this is my kitchen sink counter gone to crap. I promise, I really don't let my place get like this often, but since I did, I thought I'd be nutso and take pictures of and be even more coocoo by putting it up here on my blog. So, there you have it I'm not the world's greatest housekeeper some days.

This here, Ky, was having the time of his life and got into the cups and cookie cutters and decided that they belonged on my kitchen floor.
Toys! I can't stand having toys on my living room floor. There you see Teancum, trying to assemble his Hot Wheels track.

My counter and mantle just thrashed. Cream O Wheat box not even put back into the pantry after making some for Ocean for breakfast. Ugggh!
