"In our search to obtain relief from the stresses of life, may we earnestly seek ways to simplify our lives. May we comply with the inspired counsel and direction the Lord has given us in the great plan of happiness. May we be worthy to have the companionship of the Holy Ghost and follow the guidance of the Spirit as we navigate this mortal journey. May we prepare ourselves to accomplish the ultimate purpose of this mortal test- to return and live with our Heavenly Father."

Merry Christmas!

Wednesday, December 15, 2010


We went to a place called Santa's Wonderland. It's a drive through light show, the kids LOVED it! They also have a place there they call Santa's Village (or something like that) They have the music, shops, places to eat and most important....the kids got to visit with Santa. Carly ran up to him and hugged him, Sam did the same (mostly because he does EVERYTHING that Carly does)

Cutting down our tree.
Now on the agenda....making lots and lots of yummy Christmas treats and then gaining five pounds by eating them all!!
