Oh Snow!

This has been a pretty eventful week. Last Sunday, January 27, our prophet Gordon B. Hinckley passed away. It was a bittersweet event because although he will be missed here on earth, I know he is now with his sweet wife. He was (and still is) such an amazing man. He was the prophet for most of my most formative years and will always hold a special place in my heart.

For the rest of the week, I spent most of it taking care of my sick children and then unfortunately getting sick myself. Nothing major, we just all have colds, which means that we're all a little cranky and miserable. The weather has not helped either since it just keeps snowing....and snowing....and snowing!! Luckily we got to go down to St. George on Saturday since DE had UMEA conference so we were all able to go sit outside for short time and the kids played at the park. It was still pretty cold but at least not as cold. I was hoping school would be canceled today because of all the snow but no such luck.

When we were down south my kids and I stayed with my parents and that was fun because Iz and O kept chasing their dog Bluto all around the house. He didn't appreciate that too much, especially since they kept trying to pull his tail. It was nice having my mom there to help with sick babies and one morning I even got to sleep in! It was amazing! I hope we will all get better soon so we can get back to regular life, I really need to exercise! By the way, does anyone know if the groundhog saw his shadow this year? I am really hoping for an early spring

“Under the plan of heaven, the husband and the wife walk side by side as companions, neither one ahead of the other, but a daughter of God and a son of God walking side by side. Let your families be families of love and peace and happiness. Gather your children around you and have your family home evenings, teach your children the ways of the Lord, read to them from the scriptures, and let them come to know the great truths of the eternal gospel as set forth in these words of the Almighty.”
( “Selections from Addresses of President Gordon B. Hinckley,” Ensign, Mar. 2001, 64.)


  1. Hope you are all starting to feel better.

    That is funny that your kids chased the dog around the house.

    I think we better take up some sort of winter sport so we won't hate winter so you think?


    P.S. According to Mr. Groundhog...6 more weeks of winter!
