I love to see the temple...

This week was so crazy busy and a huge emotional roller coaster.  Crazy.  Pure Crazy!  But I don't want to focus on the crappy parts, just the good stuff.  By far the best day of my week was Saturday.  We drove to Calgary and went through the Calgary Temple open house.  It was so beautiful and the spirit there was so wonderful. I loved it! And the kids were amazingly well behaved. After the temple, we went to a baptism of our close friends son and it was the perfect end to a great day!

Whatever Wednesday - Date Night

I got to take my boys on a date last night! It was super fun. We had hot dogs at Costco then saw Hotel Transylvania. The boys were great. I love that I'm able to spend time with my kids!

I loved last weekend! Not only was it Thanksgiving, but it was General Conference. I love the opportunity to listen to the prophet and apostles and have my spiritual batteries recharged. I didn't get to watch or listen to any of Saturday's sessions (yet, but will be shortly!) but I was able to watch both sessions on Sunday. There were so many amazing moments that touched my heart. Here are a few of my favs!

I felt impressed to make some changes in my life during the sessions on Sunday.  Nothings, major, just some "fine tuning" kind of things that I need to focus on, which was great, because I tend to feel quite overwhelmed with all the things I need to get better at doing!  If you want to watch/listen to any of is, go here.

Ok, I lied...

So it took longer than the weekend, but here I am.  Finally.  Hopefully for good this time, but no promises.  Today I'm going to try and catch up (somewhat) on what has happened since I last blogged.

-we didn't go on vacation or anything exciting
-took about a million day trips to Calgary for Dad's eye appoinments
-we had lots of bonfires with the requesite hot dogs and marshmallows for roasting
-was HOT and I loved it!
-went swimming once
-went "camping" in the campground a block away from our house. The kids loved it and since we couldn't go too far from Dad, it was the best we could do.
-didn't do most of the things we usually do because of all the trips to Calgary

-grew... a lot
-now wears a size 6 clothes and size 11/12 shoe
-loves to run
-started kindergarten and loves it.  He gets sad the days he doesn't have school
-comes home every day and asks to do "homework"
-says some of the funniest things. Yesterday, in the van, he said that he needed to watch tv and play games on my phone because using electronics was one of his talents.

-is actually a size 2 now, not just a kid drowning in his clothes
-is talking a lot more, some of which you can actually understand

-is working really hard at being patient with TJ and doing a good job most days
-is such a great Dad!
