Move over Martha.....

I was feeling real crafty one day and made all three of these cute signs. Dewey (Will's grandpa) cut the wood for me and I did the rest. Click on them to get a better look. I may add some more to Kenzie's (flowers and buttons).

The new season starts tonight!! Well tomorrow and tonight is a recap but I can't wait!! I was having a bad day till I remembered I get to watch my show. I think Will for Valentines day should buy me the 1st 3 seasons don't you? That would be so sweet! Okay I now need to make dinner and clean because I have to get a nap so I can stay up till 10. I know 10 for some people is not that late but I I just can't seem to stay up that late.

Sweet Gordon B. Hinckley

Our sweet Prophet is now with his sweet wife. Although I am sad feel blessed to have had many opportunities to hear his words. To hear what a man of God has to say to me for me and my family. I am blessed to be in church where dealth is not an "unknown scarry thing" in fact it is joyful and we know where we are going. President Hinckley knew he didn't have much time left and he was excited he wanted to be with his eternal companion again and I am so happy that he is now there. One day I will hug him and let him know how thankful I am for him along with many other wonderful people in this church.
I love this quote :"You were generals in the War in Heaven and one day when you are in the spirit world, you will be enthralled by those you are associated with. You will ask someone in which time period they lived and you might hear,"I was with Moses when he parted the Red Sea," or "I helped built the pyramids'" or "I fought with Captain Moroni." And as you are standing there in amazement, someone will turn to you and ask you which of the prophets' time did you live in? And when you say "Gordon B. Hinckley" a hush will fall over every hall and corridor in Heaven, and all in attendance will bow at your presence. You were held back six thousand years because you were the most talented, most obedient, most courageous, and most righteous."- Elder Boyd K Packer
I really believe this and I am trying everyday to life up to the promises I made with Heavenly Father before I came to this earth. I will miss seeing President Hinckley's sweet face but it is only goodbye for a little bit.

Happy birthday Meagan

Jordan's little friend Meagan turned 4 yesterday and we went over there for cake and pizza. Here are Candace, Kenzie, Jordan and Meagan (the birthday girl)
Here she is with the yummy cake. Meagan's mommy is my workout buddy so after cake we played some DDR which of course I lost and duck hunt, so fun. (One day Jen I say we skip the gym and play the Wii instead)

We gave her some nail polish and since she is 4 she didn't need any help. It was so cute to see her being a big girl.

Candace and Kenzie deiced to play mommies and were walking back and forth with the strollers it was so stinkin cute!!! They have really become good friends since Candace started coming to nursery. She can even say Kenzie in the sweetest little voice ever! I love her voice ever no sounds sweet and cute.

Here is Kenzie mommy!!

Ten Thoughts to Ponder for 2008

Number 10
Life is sexually transmitted.

Number 9
Good health is merely the slowest possible rate at which one can die.

Number 8
Men have two emotions:

Hungry and Horny. If you see him without an erection, make him a sandwich.

Number 7
Give a person a fish and you feed them for a day,

teach a person to use the internet

and they won't bother you for weeks.

Number 6
Some people are like a Slinky ...

Not really good for anything, but you still can't help but smile

when you shove them down the stairs.

Number 5
Health nuts are going to feel stupid someday,

lying in hospitals dying of nothing.

Number 4
All of us could take a lesson from the weather.

It pays no attention to Criticism.

Number 3
Why does a slight tax increase cost you $200.00

and a substantial tax cut saves you $30.00?

Number 2
In the 60's, people took acid to make the world weird.

Now the world is Weird and people take Prozac to make it normal.

And The Number 1 Thought For 2008 :

We know exactly where one cow with Mad-cow-disease is located among millions and millions
of cows in America but we haven't got a clue as to where millions of illegal immigrants
and terrorists are located. Maybe we should put the Department of Agriculture in charge
of Immigration?

It's that time

Once again it is time to bear my testimony...
Things I know for sure
1. The Church is worth it. Always. No matter how hard life gets or how hard it is to life the gospel. It is worth is. I have had many things were not being in the church would have been the easy way (my wedding day) but I wanted an eternal family so I chose the harder path and let me tell you it is the BEST path.

2.Gordon B Hinkley is a prophet of God! He is a mouth piece for Heavenly Father and by following him we are following Heavenly Father. I am so thankful for him and I love him.

3. There is a song that I love and a part in it says "Savior, the world was on your shoulders.For every drop of pain that fell in my name, I'm forever Thankful." That is how I feel. Forever thankful! I can't even imagine the love he has for me to go through all he did so that I could have eternal life so I can have the life I have now. He is truly my SAVIOR and brother. I love him so much and can't wait for the day to tell him that face to face. I love that I can feel his love thru the holy spirit and prayer along with Heavenly Father.

4.Joseph Smith translated the book of Mormon he did NOT write it he translated it. He also saw Heavenly Father and Jesus face to face. He was an amazing man and I am thankful for him.

This is for you Will

I love you!!!!!

That's it?

It can't be over I NEED more!! I can't wait till the fall that is too long. I loved the books they were so good. I loved that Bella said yes to the wedding and I want to know what happened after. You know they had a deal and I have waited for three books! But it was so good. And do we think Jacob is really gone? I don't think he could leave her he needs her and wants her and will always be there. Even if she is married he will stick around "until her heart stops beating" at least. Okay now what do I do? Any other good books?

It didn't have enough Edward in it and the ending, I'm glad I did have to wait for #3 to come out I am going to start reading it tonight. I hope this next one have LOTS and LOTS of Edward in it and that the ending is just right. So we will see.
