What nice neighbors I have :)

So I just have to say that I have the nicest neighbors ever!!! A lot of our neighbors are so on top of things, and have already started taking around their treats. I can't believe it, they are going to have me rolling out of my house! Help, I can't stop eating :) They say the average person gains around 5lb's during the holiday season.... We have fudge, brownies, pumpkin cookies, whoppers, popcorn, caramel popcorn, a box of chocolates, mike and ike's, soda, sugar cookies, and pumpkin cheesecake rolls. Party at my house!! Wow, I don't know what else to say except that I am going to be on a sugar high for at least a month. It is so exciting though, i just can't contain myself, I love this time of year. There is the most amazing article in the Ensign this month, it is a copy of a talk given by Elder Neal A. Maxwell, in 1976 in general conference, it is titled Jesus of Nazareth Savior and King. It is so amazing!! A part that really hit me about prayer, he is talking about the savior, and says "I thank Him for His discerning way of knowing us without controlling us, for never letting the needs of now crowd out the considerations of eternity.... I thank Him for likewise not interceding on our behalf, even when we pray in faith and reasonable righteousness for that which would not be right for us. Our glimpse of Gethsemane should teach us that all prayers are petitions!" All I can say is wow, there were so many parts of this talk that impressed me so much! Jesus knows us so well, he knows that sometimes there are things that we don't really want to go through, but that we need to go through, so that we can reach our full potential. For any of you that don't get the ensign, or haven't gotten the opportunity to read this talk yet, here is a link:
I hope that all of you are having an amazing Christmas season!!

Snowy Daze

I haven't been able to get on and make a post for so long... Somedays I am not sure what I get done... I am sure a lot of you know how I feel, you clean all day, but at then end of the day you look around and think to yourself, if anyone comes over right now they are going to think I haven't cleaned for a week.. Well i finally got both of the boys to sleep at the same time, so here I am. And now that i am on, for the life of me I can't think of what to say.... I was thinking about doing an ode to a few of my favorite things, like my new fabric softener, dumb I know, but it smells like real peaches, yum. My laundry is now good enough to eat. Okay so now you are thinking she really doesn't have anything to write about. I think it is that there has been so much time gone by there would be too much to write about if I really tried to catch up so here I am writing about my fabric softener. :) While we are on that subject though, I have to say that I love the Dawn Simple Pleasures Apple & Pear dish soap. It has air freshener in the bottom of it, and makes my whole kitchen smell nice. Another one of my favorite things is my Shampoo and Conditioner, this is one that I don't know what I would do without... I have to tell you that it makes your hair so much easier to comb through, so soft, shiny etc...... I have a really soft head, and hate to comb through my hair, it about makes me cry sometimes.. my hair underneath is curly, and gets really knotted from rubbing on my coat and hoodies etc. Well this conditioner saves me, it is called matrix sleek look. These are just a few of my favorite things, right now anyway... Share a few of yours with me. I also have to say I really don't like being cold, but if it is going to be cold, it might as well snow, and if it is going to snow it might as well snow a ton!!! so YEAH :) Easton and I went out today and built a fort, and a hill for his sled, we had so much fun, and ended up sopping wet... The top picture is one of Andru, and Easton the first night it snowed. The snow was really hard to pack so Court was so nice to make them a snowman by packing the snow in a bucket. Love you Court!!!
