This is not nearly as exciting to others, but little Eliza finally showed her tooth… and it happened to be right when I was taking a picture. See that wee little tooth on the bottom right. Are you dying about the bow? Ok – sorry ’bout that ‘Liza. I gave it a try, but it’s a bit thick. We’ll try again some other day.
Hannah almost made a basket in her game on Saturday. Jimmy did laundry on Saturday… while I was at the funeral.
Our R.S. was in charge of the funeral luncheon. It gets tricky when you think 30 people will be there… 60 show up to eat… and some of the food never showed. What I loved was that the sisters who came to help just worked and worked and washed those dishes. We tidied much faster than we anticipated. Sunday morning my feet were swollen from standing so much. We learned a lot and will do things differently next time (I hope there isn’t a next time… as in – a funeral in our ward).
Sunday. Early Morn Meetings. Missed my ‘Liza. So glad to see the barnlings arrive with Jimmy. Hannah knelt down on the floor and cried into my lap. She didn’t have the best morn. Abe hurt her feelings… Well, it seems everyone hurt her feelings. She is a girlie. Tru yelled, “Mommy! Hi Mom…” right in the middle of the opening prayer. Awe-some.
Had a nice R.S. Lesson on Prayer. I loved this quote shared by our teacher, our 1st Counselor. (made by Ryan)
This week I have been thinking about the Spirit of Revelation… Inspiration from the Holy Ghost. I realized that the Holy Ghost speaks way more often than I’m listening. I’ve been trying to “listen to the still small voice… listen… listen.” It’s really interesting how things turn out when you follow-through on a thought. I need to do that more often.
Visited Wendi & Zachariah up at Primary Children’s. He’s a cute little fellow. I can’t believe Eliza was once that small… 7 lbs. She’s such a chub now. We sure hope the best for Zach & that he’ll be able to come home soon – all healthy and well.
Had a nice visit with mom and dad. I feel like I haven’t seen them in forever. And when I do see them, we are wrangling tots. It was nice and quiet and calm at their house. I decided I needed to stay there for 24 hours to rest up for my life. But alas… I came home to my love Jimmy who had been parenting the tots all day while I was out and about. He is very supportive of me when I have to be gone to so many meetings for my calling. I hope I can be that supportive of him someday when he is gone for many moons to many meetings.
Onto Monday… and the rest of the week.
