So Blessed.

Yesterday while sitting with my family watching conference I couldn't help but think about how very blessed I am. I can't even begin to list all of my blessings, but I have to mention 3 things that I couldn't live without. My Heavenly Father, my Savior Jesus Christ, and my family. What a wonderful feeling to know that we can be together forever with our family and Savior! Who could ask for more? It really made me think what the most important things in life are. Although money sure makes things easier I could live without it if needs be, but without my family or the Savior it wouldn't be much. Just some random thoughts that I wanted to get onto paper...or should I say into cyberspace somewhere.
Aitana's class had some animals come for a visit from the Little River Zoo. I don't think that she was too sure about it! The teacher invited siblings to come and Ryan was all about it! The women even commented how gentle and well behaved he was with the animals for his age...who knew? I love the look on Aitana's classmates face.

Jacob earned is Wolf in cub scouts. I now understand why the mom gets a pin at the same time! It takes a lot of proding to get things done...especially when you wait until last minute. We have a fun cub master who always has good ideas for pack meetings. This last pack meeting she arranged for a fire truck and ambulance to come...the ambulance got called away, but the boys thought it was great.

Ryan is in a big boy bed now...or should I say next to a big boy bed. Lila definately has outgrown her bassinet and was sleeping in a porta crib so we thougt it was about time to make the move. Ryan was climbing out anyways and I was too cheap to buy another crib. Well he is doing great, but the first night he decided the floor would be better. How comfie!

Love the ;icture of Ryan passed out on the floor. Someimes I wake up to find Kentaleeping on the floor, just like that. I don't get it. Beds are comfy - floors are not.
And ditto on the being blessed part! we have so much to be thankful for.

My sister sent me an e-mail telling me that you asked permission to use a portion of my post in your talk on Sunday.

I never think anyone reads what I write so I don't check in very often.

I re-read what I wrote and can't imagine that there is anything there that would be edifying, but you are totally welcome to use what you want.

I love reading your posts. You are always so positive. And amazing!! Can't believe you keep up with your children, life, and still have time to be so profound. Wow!

Oh, and things seem to be going swimmingly for Scott and Cynthia. They are going up Bryce and Zion with Marque and Sarah. Should be fun.

Love you!

Hey, great job on your talks today! I meant to appologize about Aitana returning to you during Sacrament Meeting, but didn't get a chance after church. I'm so sorry! She just up and left!

Hola "élder Batista" qué bien que podamos estar en contacto y ver que pasa en nuestras vidas. Qué maravilla la técnica, sobretodo esto de "interné" es fantástico.
Bueno a lo que iba, estoy casada hace ya diez años y tengo una niña que se llama Blanca y es lo más de lo más.
Para que puedas seguir nuestras "andaduras" tenemos el recien creado blog familiar. UN PASEO POR LA VIDA, pero para encontrarlo pones en google (pág en Español, ya que tengo unos copiones italianos como un tal sergio Maresca) allí nos encontraras.
Si me envias tu correo podremos hablar de cosas más trascendentales, rememorar los viejos tiempos y reirnos de lo pasado.
Sigo en la Iglesia, he tenido malos momentos (nada escandaloso, que sosa) pero ahí estamos luchando dia a dia.
Un besazo!

PD.:Ah! mi correo es
