I have two talks coming up... Love Who YOU ARE
We believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous, and in doing good to all men; indeed, we may say that we follow the admonition of Paul—We believe all things, we hope all things, we have endured many things, and hope to be able to endure all things. If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, we seek after these things.
Wish me Luck!
Lily insisted on having the alarm clock in her room, and waking up at 5:30, Which we don't even leave for school until 8:30. So she beat the alarm clock by ten minutos, and was ready to go by 6:15, Jacket and all. That girl is hilarious these days. Figured out it snowed a bit, and we decided to check, and sure enough, NO SCHOOL! Ha! Lily was pretty upset. So instead of sledding, since it was freezing today, we decided to go to 4th Street Live. Totally fun, our first time there. And what is a snowy cold day without an art museum? We painted like three pictures each, and pretended to look at all the other art:). Absolutely fun day with the fam!

By the time we got all of the gear we were so hot...ummm, not for long, I think it was about 20 degrees out! The hills were packed, and there were no injuries. Came home and made Chicken noodle soup with Klaira. She is becoming a pro at making noodles. And her little sis Loves them!
The girls started playing basketball, and I'm not sure who is more excited, Mark, Or the girls. FIRST game Klaira gets the rebound, and then makes a basket. Lily makes two points. One was right after her other teammate. They are seriously loving it. It's our new favorite hobby. Oh and since it's at a baptist Church, you get to hear stories of how Jesus had a team too, called the Apostles. We pray alot at their games, so don't feel like you have to!
So I'm opening up the mail, and it says that Klaira won an award for a painting, and there is an awards ceremony, RSVP. So we did, and we didn't really think that it was that big of a deal. We show up just in time, in this gorgeous building, to watch Klaira receive her award for 3rd place out of 2,000 students. Her art was the only one that got entered from her school. I am soo proud of this girl. This was such a huge fun night!
I really hope that I can look back on this entry, and see that I was being strengthened, not weakened. I really have finally learned that Everyone is going through something. That was a huge realization. What I really am ready to know is how do you know if you are even halfway there to learning something from your trial. Without you seeing me cry, mine is that I want another baby. I really do. My girls do. Mark do's too! I really feel like the time frame for this trial should be over. Its been long and hard, and really, really hard. I feel like I have given a good fight and I want a different one,straight out of the bag. I have to figure out what mile marker I'm on because, I haven't seen a finish line in a while. Uhh, plus my eyes are going to be swollen shut tomorrow. Ps. Give your Infertility friend a huge hug for me!
