Joy is very infectious; therefore, be always full of joy.

Where O where have we been?

It's been weeks. I know.

Life really threw us a curve ball and we have been trying to absorb, sort, justify and enjoy. All at once.

I have much to update, but for now you get my random questions...

  • Why when you need something for first thing in the morning, it never fails that the website is down, the printer won't print and everybody needs you all at once?
  • Why is food poisoning so painful? For the amount of pain, in the waves I experienced them, last night I feel slightly jipped that there is no cuddly newborn to love out of the deal! LOL
  • Why does cantaloupe turn my 5 year old into a sneak? Shouldn't candy cause such a shift in personality?
  • Do you think a 5 year old will get some tummy troubles for the half of a cantaloupe that he consumed tonight?
  • Why would they have 8 year old scouts go to Day camp at 6 am... but the 10 year olds go at 1:30 pm? I think they hate me.
  • Why is it when you finally act on an answer to a prayer... you still can feel so sick and unhappy about it?
  • How do you let go of someone who hurts you, over and over, without knowing it (or caring?) without hurting them in return?
  • Where is a good place to "run away"? Where ever you go... you always have to come back. LOL.
  • Why is chocolate such a great way to improve anything? And why is Coldstone 10x better than chocolate?
  • Couldn't chocolate or Coldstone NOT make you fatter when there are times you really "need" it? That only seems fair!
  • How did I ever get so lucky to be married to my very best friend, my greatest champion and someone I am still so madly in love with? (and who is super hot! hubba hubba!)
  • How is it possible I lived over 2 months without him? It seems like a dream...
  • Why can't I confront those that need confronting without being so afraid I will not be understood? But I need to stand up for myself and I want to be heard... do I really "need" to be heard? That is the question!
  • Why are little white lies made out to be so insignificant? Sometimes they hurt the most.
  • What would you do if the Savior came tomorrow? I have been thinking that a lot lately.
  • Where would you like your life to go? This is one I think of too.
  • Who matters most to you? Yep. It's in there.
  • Why do you keep going, keep believing, keep trying? That one is what I have found the answer to this last little while. It is a personal question we all must find the answer to I guess.
It is SO nice to have Jestin home. Oh... he is home now BTW. LOL. No more work in California for now. Our family is complete again. It has been a lovely week+.

Well.. there is much to do tomorrow... and much to sleep off tonight... like being up all night last night being sick... I promise I have not forgotten that I have a blog. I will be back!

Two of our dearest friends...

When I was a "crazy woman" and drove to California to get Jestin, these two sweet friends of ours made a great sacrifice and took all four of our children for me for 4 days! And they have 5 kids of their own! LOL They did a great job of making it an easy thing for the kids... they played and worked hard while they were there. It was perfect. Cody took this picture when, one evening of fun turned into dancing in the livingroom! It is so cute!
Thank you Austin and Amy... from the bottom of my heart!! I can't even begin to tell you how much your friendship and support has meant! LOVE YA!!!!!

Baptisms for the Dead

Emmalee got go and do Baptisms for the Dead in the Provo temple with our ward. It was her first time in a temple since we were sealed when she was 1 month old. We have such a great group of kids! It was a beautiful morning!
Emma and one of her best friends, Jessica.

We can't wait to go and do them together as a family at "our" temple... Mt. Timpanogos!
