...It's the Best Time of the Year!

I don't know if there'll be snow but have a cup of cheer! Have a Holly Jolly Christmas....

So like I said before, I got really behind this year and didn't get my family pictures taken. :( So I bribed Easton and Ian today to let me take their pictures. I wanted to at least have a picture of them for Christmas.

I hope you all have an amazing Christmas. I am going to try these next two weeks to slow things down, and focus on the true meaning. I hope we can all make it a Christmas to remember. I love what Pres. Monson said, "The Christmases we remember best usually have little to do with worldly goods but a lot to do with the spirit of caring, the spirit of love, and the spirit of compassion."

Merry Christmas everyone!

Quick catch up

So you know when you let your blog go so long that you feel there is no possible way to catch it up? Well that is me now.... I have felt so busy lately, that happens to all of us I know, especially around the holidays, and I have this weakness, I hate to blog without a picture. So here I am without a picture to post because although I have been taking and editing pictures like crazy lately, I haven't taken one of my boys in the last month... or of anything going on in our life.

I have to post though, and say how blessed I have felt. I have a beautiful warm home, an amazing husband, two beautiful boys, the gospel, and to many other blessings to list. I had the opportunity to go and do baptisms for the dead last night, I love, love, LOVE watching the youth, and being there in the beautiful, peaceful temple.

This past month I have also gotten the opportunity to watch a five year old boy learn how to read. It is like MaGIc!! I seriously got all teary eyed watching him bring his first book home, and sound the words out. He has now been through five more, and I love every minute of it. Thank you once again to his amazing teachers, you all ROCK!!

I will finish with a cute little thing that Ian has learned. He is so mellow, timid, and shy (at first).. He has started saying "I scawdy cat" whenever he gets scared... too cute!

I promise more to come, and pictures to. I bought Ian the cutest vest ever and so want to take pictures of them!
