The Treasure of Isian by Serena Clarke

The Treasure of Isian is the first book in The Isian Series. Prince Garin is a brave, proud, adventure-seeking prince. Elani is his most trusted servant and she would do anything for him. Their quest to find the mystical Treasure of Isian is immediately interrupted and they find themselves confronted by giants, elves, dragons, and a vengeful water-witch. Elani must face her greatest fears to save her prince and her kingdom. Will they be able to make a great sacrifice to save the kingdom?

“The Treasure of Isian was a stirring tale of an enchanted servant and a handsome prince. The adventures they face together as they search for the fabled treasure of Isian that will grant the bearer any wish they desire. Once I picked it up, I couldn’t put it down. The author did a wonderful job pacing the story and connecting me to the characters. Superb story that brought a smile to my face and helped me remember that sometimes, we can overlook the most valuable treasures in life if we’re not careful.” --Author Charissa Stastny

WHITE HART by Taryn Tyler

Gawain of Orkney has not been to Camelot since before his father led a rebellion against King Arthur. Now that the war is over Gawain is sent to attend Arthur's wedding as a token of peace. 

The night of the wedding Arthur bids Gawain to hunt a white hart -- a beautiful deer of unearthly purity. Gawain accepts the quest but the dangers of the wilderness become hard to battle when he is bound by Arthur's new ideals of peace and trust. Gawain realizes he may not be so different from the knights of the old, violent ways of as he had imagined. 

Gawain does not have long to decide which life he wants to chase. Not all of the rebels put down their swords when his father did. The knights of the old ways are planning an assassination and even King Arthur may not survive this new idealistic trust.'

You can find WHITE HART on Amazon:

TBT Leif and Kal'el VS. THE MOLE

AWWWW Kal'el was so little.

Throw Back Thursday Post:

Yep, we got a mole. He was digging up our backyard like crazy so the boys went out to kill it.

Here is Kal'el "standing guard" ready to wack the mole when it comes crawling out.

Waiting and Waiting

Waiting, but no mole ever surfaced so Leif started a water fight.

This is what Zion is all about.

So excited about this.

We sold everything when we moved to Oregon and have been slowly refurnishing our home.

A friend from the ward came over one day and saw we were using a card table for our dinning room table.

She had an extra table in her garage and gave it to us.

We are paying it forward.
A friend from the stake mentioned that she needed a washing machine.

We just happen to have an extra washing machine in our garage.

Our ward and stake is so cool. This is what Zion is all about.

The Selfie That Didn't Work Out.

Avalon is not a cuddly girl. Its a precious, rare moment when she lets us hug and snuggle her.

Leif got one of these rare moments and wanted to take a picture.

Avalon noticed the camera phone and this is what happened.
