I, like Nephi...

Have been born of Goodly Parents. I have had an overwhelming sense of gratitude since the Saturday session of our Stake Conference. I can hardly control my emotions when I sit back and think about how blessed I have been to have the family that I do. It was a sacred privilege to sit in that meeting and hear both of my parents bear their witness to the truthfulness of the gospel and of our Savior Jesus Christ. I have heard their testimonies a number of times in my life, but for some reason this time it was different. Maybe it's because I am older and appreciate it/them more, maybe it's because of the growth we have experienced as a family having them serve as the Temple President and Matron the last 3 years, but whatever the reason is...I will forever be grateful for the opportunity I had to be there and feel of the spirit.

Oh...Back to School...Back to School...

To prove to dad that I'm not a fool!!

Today I celebrated school being back in session by going to Red Onion for lunch with some friends. I LOVE my kids but I LOVE the structure that being in school brings. No more eating dinner after 8:00, kids going to bed after 10:00, and listening to kids fighting all day long! It does make me sad though that my kids are growing up SO fast!!

Tristen (8th Grade), Eva (6th grade), Michael & Porter (4th grade), Amelia (3rd Grad), Zach & Paul (1st grade), and Morgon & Caden (kindergarten)

I had to also post these other pictures..

Love this munchkin!

Mallori was sick puking the other day and Brandon took this picture...

Poor Girl!

Brotherly Love...

Anyone who has an older brother can understand the torment one goes through at times. They can be your best friend or your worse enemy! Watching these two brought back memories of being teased and tortured by my older brothers...I had to sit back and smile!!
