Christmas Pictures.


On Saturday I decided I needed to get my Christmas Cards done, so I got the kids dressed and took some pictures. Here are some that we didnt use for our cards, I will save those ones for later. If you want a Christmas Card, leave your address with me so that I can get one to you.

Santa's Helicopter.

On Black Friday we went to the mall where they had Santa's big arrival. He flew in on a Helicopter and the kids absolutely loved it. I didnt even get a picture of Santa, but I promise that he was there.

Happy Thanksgiving

I have so much to be thankful for this Holiday season, but the thing I am most thankful for is my Family. We had plans to stay home and just have a low key Thanksgiving when we found out that Eric's Grandfather had no where to go for Thanksgiving dinner. We were blessed to be able to have him down to our house for a couple of hours to enjoy Thanksgiving Dinner. Here is a picture of the kids and Great-grandpa Jim. They love being around him, but who doesn't!

Here is a picture of Emma and Marcus. They were having fun posing for the camera.

I have been working a lot lately on a Christmas project, and one thing that I have been so grateful for is having memories, pictures, stories and legacies of my ancestors. Just looking at this picture gives me comfort. I never got to meet my great-grandmother Mary Clark because she died when she was young, but from what I do know, she was an amazing person and knowing that she paved the way for me give me eternal comfort.

Family Night

One of Emma's favorite movies is The Polar Express and since last night was her choice of Activity for Family Home Evening, she chose to watch it with the family for the first time this season. We bought the 3D version. Here is a picture of the kids enjoying that feature. This is the one movie that both of our kids will sit down and watch the entire thing. Needless to say Eric and I enjoyed a nice relaxing evening.

Flashback Friday and a Great Quote

I get an email every day with a different quote on it. Today's reminded me of the day that I married my best friend. I really liked the quote and wanted to keep it somewhere I could find it. Hope you all enjoy it.

“Our covenants supply strength—they produce the faith necessary to persevere and to do all things that are expedient in the Lord. Our willingness to take upon us the name of Christ and keep His commandments requires a degree of faith, but as we honor our covenants, that faith expands. In the first place, the promised fruits of obedience become evident, which confirms our faith. Secondly, the Spirit communicates God’s pleasure, and we feel secure in His continued blessing and help. Thirdly, come what may, we can face life with hope and equanimity, knowing that we will succeed in the end because we have God’s promise to us individually, by name, and we know He cannot lie (see Enos 1:6; Ether 3:12).”

D. Todd Christofferson, “The Power of Covenants,” Ensign, May 2009, 21

Get Well

Every night this week I went to bed at about 7 o'clock because I wasn't feeling well. One night I was laying in bed watching the office while dozing in and out of consciousness. Emma kept running in and out of the room putting up these pictures that she had colored. She told me they were to help me feel better. So now I have my own 'get well soon' shrine in my room. Thank goodness for the sweetness of little kids they are always so thoughtful.

Pretty like a Princess

Two times on Wednesday I found Emma in the bathroom putting on my makeup. Here is one conversation that happened when Eric approached her about it...

Eric: 'What are you doing?'

Emma: 'Looking pretty like a princess.'

Eric: 'But you already look pretty like a princess without make-up.'

Emma: 'well, I just like make-up and I want to look pretty.'

Family Night

We went to Temple Square with our family recently for Family Home Evening. It was a quick trip, but fun to see my dad, misty and my brother Trace for a little bit. Excuse Emma's grumpy face. She wasnt feeling very good that night...poor thing.

Go Cowboys

Well the Dallas Cowboys play this weekend and my little one is excited about it. This is a video from last week when he was watching it with daddy.
