First signs of Spring!!

Spring so very special to me now. I don't think it was before at all. I mean I would have fresh planted plants next to my Christmas decorations on my front porch that I just bought from Home Depot! But here it has been full of suprises! Like these daffodils, I have them by my front porch, and we were so excited when we first saw the green poke through the soggy wet ground! I was talking the other day to my mom on the phone, and I just go Oh my Gosh!! and she was like what what? and I told her about all of the daffodils on the side of the freeway out of nowhere. You can really appreciate life when all you have been seeing is brown all winter. I can see how you could be hopeless, and then all of a sudden just like the little herbs that I planted, you see a tiny little green bud coming out of the ground, and it is the most beautiful thing ever. WE GOT HERE during the summer last year, it was plenty green but we did not appreciate every single bud like we do now. I feel like this is how we were with the gospel, and members, and friends and family. We knew it was all beautiful, we were able just to enjoy them right from Home Depot, but we forgot about all the hard work and endurance that went into these special people in our lives! My has my perspective changed on so many things!! I am so thankful for this amazing huge lesson that my heavanly father has taught me, and I so appreciate all of the beauty he has put on the earth, to keep us hopeful, faithful, and grateful for each new leaf!

Literacy Day at School!

I hung out at school with these cute chicks. Klaira was pippy Longstocking, and Lily was Rebecca, her American girl doll. Funny story. This cute boy in the pic just loved Klaira! He kept asking me how come we were so pretty! I was laughing so hard, and at lunch I asked Klaira if she knew that boy liked her, and she said yeah, he gets pretty annoying! She is hilarious that girl! Fun day at school we had! It's so fun to see the kids interact with all the other kids at school!

Playing Dress up!

Klaira did Lily's hair and makeup, isn't she gorgeous!! Klaira is becoming a pro at hair!

Flew out to see friends in DC, and to see this cute friend Adam! He is a different character everytime I see him! He always asks me if his breath smells good.

Family pics from the baptism

Lily's 8!!

I can't believe my baby is 8!! This girl is full of life! She is such a kind, and Christlike person. Her class all made her individual birthday cards from school, and it made me cry to hear all the nice things they had to say about her! At 8 she loves the violin, she loves to get up early, basketball, being outside, she doesn't like chocolate, she loves california rolls. What a special day, and I am so happy to spend it with my family!! Kaylee my niece and my mom spoke at the baptism, and then all the grandkids sang, I love to look for rainbows! Tyler played the piano, and Grandma Eloise led the music!! I love this girls testimony, and her simple way of choosing the right!
