Eli's Birthday and October Fun!

Eli turned the SIX (6) this October and one of his gifts was a king costume which he absolutely loves!!  I'm so glad!  He had like twenty kids to his birthday party that we held and grandma and grandpas (since we stayed with them for a month) and it was a blast for the kids (crazy for the momma hence no pictures)!

Ivy got a Mini Mouse costume for Halloween which I washed in too hot of water right away and it pulled off half the dots on the dress 😱!  Owell... She still looked darling!

I took the kids on a field trip to the pumpkin patch with other homeschoolers which was a good time!

Eli and his buddy Kinin crack me up!  They are only about two years apart in age, but they look adorable with their costumes and height difference!  Love it! Kinin's mom is my good friend Michelle!

Farewell to a good man!

My beloved mission president, Richard R. George, passed away this last weekend. Yesterday, I was honored and blessed to attend his funeral services.

I got a big hug from Sister George which got me all choked up!  I love this couple so tenderly, so dearly!  It's hard to describe in words what a person experiences on their mission, but I couldn't have asked for more amazing role models!  I am grateful for them and their love and service!  

One thing I learned at the funeral was that to be grateful, is to actually reciprocate what you are grateful for!  I pray I can be truly grateful for their examples!!

I also was so happy to visit with some of my dear friends from the mission!  I have such wonderful memories with many of them and shared experiences!  I look forward to our mission reunion in April 2015!💞

March Madness!!!

By the end of March, this big boy had 6 teeth!!!

I love this picture!!!  Ivy is just a doll here and these two play so well together!!  

Emmitt had his first major fall while standing up in the bathtub! :(. He hit his eye on the faucet.

Picking up rocks so Dirk can plant grass.

Here's a picture of yours truly with my new hairstyle.

This girl loves some sparkle!!  She applied all of this makeup herself.  She was upset her for some reason I can't remember.
