Coolest day of the year!

So today was such a great day! We had family come and visit us in Ephraim, the Trasks and my girls had the time of their life. It was Snow College's Homecoming this weekend and they had a parade so we watched. I find myself watching my girls more than the parade because they are so much fun to watch, especially when candy is thrown out. Mallorie takes off after it no matter how far off it is and Jerusha is a little passie especially when we are around other families. I went for the most amazing 4 wheeler ride with my husband. He got me one for my birthday and we went up around Ephraim. It was awesome!!! I'm thinking it is time to potty train Mallorie. While she was at grandma's house the other day, so  we could take Tammy to Primary's for a checkup, we got a text from my sister of a picture of Mallorie in the bathroom with her pants around her ankles and the toilet seat up. she was saying poo poo potty. Yeah we are excited about that. Tomorrow is my 25th birthday. I remember when I was ten and I turned 10 on the 10 month on the 10 day in 1995 and I thought that was so cool but I thought it would have been even cooler if it could have been the 10th year and now, it is only i'm 25 and not 10. Tomorrow will be 10/10/2010 and it's my birthday. Thanks mom for having me on the coolest day ever!

Count your blessings

I feel I need to share an experience. I was sad today. And as I sit here, holding my baby so she will sleep, I'm reminded of the last month of our life. I went to womens conference this last week. My sweet husband very willingly watched our girls so I could go and it was wonderful. I sat in our chapel, pondering by myself and praying for whatever answers or inspiration Heavenly Father felt I needed. I knew I couldn't asked for what I wanted. I was there to receive revelation for myself and needed to hear what He wanted me to. I prayed so hard to receive some kind of inspiration but I wasn't sure what it was going to be and then we started to sing the opening hymn, Count your blessings and that was my answer. As I sat there reading the word to that amazing song, I started to cry and I knew I didn't need to ask for anything else specifically, Heavenly Father knew what I needed to hear. I count my blessings everyday that I hold my little baby in my arms and I am so thankful to still have her as part of my life. It was an inspired song for me to hear. I know m Heavenly Father loves me and is watching out for me and my family. He knows what we are capable of bearing. He knows me personally and I feel His love in my home everyday. I know that through the resurrection of Christ my family will live together forever and one day all have perfect bodies. I have a testimony of the power of the priesthood and faith and as we exercise them in our home, we are blessed! And I bear my testimony in the name of my Savior, Jesus Christ, Amen.

Thank you all for your prayers in our behalf. We appreciate them very much and know they are heard.
