Love this quote!

My plea-- and i wish i were more eloquent in voicing it-- is a plea to save the children. Too many of them walk with pain and fear, in loneliness and despair. Children need sunlight. They need happiness. They need love and nurture. They need kindness and refreshment and affection. Every home, regardless of the cost of the house, can provide an environment of love which will be an environment of salvation (Gordon B. Hinckley)

Sunsets and smiles

Today i attended a training all day to aquire Continuing Education credit. I love to learn, yes i know im nerdy, but I feel like there is so much in the world that i want to know so i love when i have opportunities to learn something new. After sitting in a classroom all day I came home and took a walk and caught this beautiful sunset. We havent had a blue sky for a long time because its been so gray and cloudy everyday. It really makes you appreciate the beauty of a sunset...

Stella had tons of fun with her grandparents today building things, going to the park and doing exercises with grandpa and his trainer.

��Baby Shower in a Greenhouse ��

Today my friend and i threw a baby shower in a greenhouse. Inside the greenhouse there is a park like area and the kids had a blast while the moms hung out on a picnic table and celebrated. My friend Elizabeth is really laid back so this was the perfect venue. I hadnt realized how much i missed flowers growing & green grass. All the world outside is shade of brown. It was a nice change to feel like it was spring.

Moms surprise birthday party

This past weekend we surprised my mom for her 70th birthday. We through a party for her with all her friends and family. We had all her favorite snacks, carmel corn, See's Candy, and fruits and veges. 

My siblings flew in for the occasion which was the best part of the surprise

This is not the clearest picture but its of her walking into the house and her first glimpse of all her friends hiding in the dark and yelling surprise. It was such a fun night.

Christmas Morning

I recently realized that i didnt post that much during the holidays. It was probably a combo of being so busy and not feeling up for posting. in looking back over the pictures i realized there were lots of photos worth sharing so these may be a little late but hopefully worth the wait ;) 

Christmas morning w/ my nephews Cameron & Blake. They are so cute and such good guys, always willing to help out. I wish we lived closer to them.
