Super Cute Hob Goblins...

So right after work I got to hurry to Misty & Jake's so I could see my super cute little hob goblins. They had to rush off to the yearly Halloween Party at the Doans. They looked so dang cute... I'm serious and no I am not prejudice... just look at them... Oh, and Gid and Ashelyn are pretty cute too... he he he.... just kidding. Gid totally looked like a little Eddy Munster and Ashe made a super sweet pixie or fairy... So thank you, thank you to Misty and Jake for waiting for me... I would have been very sad to miss seeing them.

The Beauty of a Fall Day...

I absolutely love this time of year. I love sweatshirt weather... a nip in the cool crisp air... the sun shining through the trees... These are just a few of the pictures I snatched while driving through the country with my sweetie... What more can you ask for?
I particularly loved the bottom left shot.

Each so different, yet so wonderful!

You make me laugh, You bring me joy,
You raise me up, You make me shine,
We've shared our grief, we've shed some tears,
Without your love, I wouldn't be me.

Thank you for being my Sis!

The Picture Says It All....

Exciting News for Kansas City!!!

So we heard the most wonderful news today during the First Session of General Conference. An L.D.S. Temple will be built in the Greater Kansas City Area! Wooooo Hoooo!!!! We are so thrilled to finally have a temple close to home... now we have to wonder... Where???? Hopefully we will find out all the particulars at Stake Conference next Sunday.

I loved the first session. Each talk was sweeter and seemed to speak more clearly to our family's recent experiences. I loved President Deiter F. Uchtdorf's talk on Hope. It cemented in my mind much of what I have been feeling. When he said we have the responsibility to make it an active part of our lives... That hope is a choice... we can choose hope or choose dispair... My thoughts were... I choose Hope. So I am ever hopeful that through our Lord and Savior, through the power of prayer all things are made possible. This week has been a testiment of that very truth. Each day as TJ grows stronger, and Jade and Tim stay strong, hopeful, and faithful... we know that we are loved and that the Lord hears and answers our prayers. Thank you again to all who have prayed on our behalf. We love each and every one of you.

May God Bless and Keep you in his Care.

Loving My Family...

I am so thankful for my family. We loved having Dad and momma Phyllis come by for a visit last Saturday and wish we got to see them more often. You can see the kids just loved visiting with their Great-Grandparents. Dad sure had Ashelyn giggling... it was so fun to watch, dad sang and Ashe chortled... what a hoot... In the pic of Gideon giggling, he was playing peek-a-boo with me and he thought it was awfully funny when I hid and jumped up... not sure how I snapped the photo, but sure glad I did.
