Macey's Worker

T got a new job working at Macey's and I couldn't be more thrilled.  I'm so glad that he is out of the fast food side of things.  He is enjoying working there much more and it is teaching him a lot of useful skills that he'll need throughout his life.

Elder Bailey

Jalen left for his mission on Dec. 3.  He is going to be an amazing missionary.  I am so grateful for his wonderful example he is setting for his cousins, and more specifically my boys.  T really looks up to Jalen and I'm excited for him to be able to watch Jalen grow in the gospel and share it with others.  It's crazy to think that in only 2 years T will be doing the same thing.  Where did the time go?

My Little Chicken

M had her first drill competition last Saturday.  Her "kick" routine is my favorite.  They are "chickens" and the dance is super cute.  I love it, it makes me smile every time I watch it!

First Temple Trip as a Family

We went to the temple for the first time with all our kids!  What an awesome experience.  J finally turned 12 and got her recommend so we decided we should all go together.  I loved it!  We are going to try to go at least once a month so that the kids can get in the habit of regular temple attendance.  I feel so blessed to be able to attend with all my children.  I pray that we will always be able to go together and enjoy the wonderful blessings that come from going to the temple!

Sarah Eden

For one of our recent book clubs we read "A Kiss of a Stranger" by Sarah M. Eden.  One of the girls in our book club sent Sarah an email and asked if she would come to our book club, and she said YES!!  It was a very small setting, I think maybe 7 of us girls and Sarah.  She was so enjoyable.  She was very personable and funny.  She was very down to earth and chatty and I loved her book.  I'm ready to read another one by her.  It was a fabulous evening! 

Zombie Dance

One of M's drill dances was a Halloween/Zombie Dance.  The girls had to "make" their own costumes and I thought M did a great job!  Their dance was super fun and M did a great job!
