Eli's "cold" face!

Eli doesn't eat ice cream too often because he thinks it is too cold. When he does though, he usually makes this face, I love it!!!!! He kept saying "cheese" because he thought I was trying to take his picture, I think it was distracting him from the coldness of the ice cream too. :) I love this little boy!

Roller Skating

We went to Pattison's Roller Rink last Saturday for Madeleine's birthday party. We had a lot of fun, especially Kambria! She had only been skating once and that was 2 years ago, but she picked up where she had left off and did Great!


Daddy and Auntie Adie had to help a little at first......


.......but then she was ready to do it on her own! :)




Eli can't wait to be able to get out there too!

Time Out For Women


Jenny Oaks Baker was so amazing!!! She earned a masters degree in music from Julliard and was the head violinist for the National Symphony! She was very sweet and humble and an amazing women!



Mariama Kallon is also amazing, but with a heartbreaking story! She grew up in war-torn Sierra Leone, Africa. It was there where she feared for her life everyday and had to watch so many of her loved ones killed. Right before finally being able to flee to safety, she was raped by the rebels and had to watch her sister's legs being cut off. :( She and a few others were saved by the miracle and power of prayer.




There were quite a few women from our ward that went, but Dana, Valerie, and I decided to carpool and sit together. I had a lot of fun with these two awesome ladies! :)




Rhiannon and I got to hang out through the event too! :) I had to share her with her mother in-law and sister in-law though, I was okay with that! :)



Whew! Although very swollen, huge, and uncomfortable I made it through Friday evening and all day Saturday! It was so worth it!!!!
I got to see my Aunt Gwen too! She came up from Walla Walla for the event. I have such and amazing extended family and I miss them!
The speakers and the musical guests were amazing and their words and music were so uplifting! I learned so much and hope that I can take that and make myself a better Wife, Mommy, Friend, and Daughter of God.
