choir concert

last night "A" had his first ever choir concert. this might not seem like a big deal, but it was to us! "A" has always been on the shy side. he makes friends very easily and is a fun kid, but he does not like doing things in front of groups. plus--"A" has never really been a singer--he only recently has begun singing in primary. so, last night when he stood on the stage and sang it brought tears to me eyes! i was such a proud mommy!
the gals who spend countless hours on this little choir are wonderful! thank you!

my baby 'A" is 7 today!

my sweet little (okay--he is not all that little) "A" turned 7 today. he is such a joy to have in our family. he is gorgeous, sweet, sensitive, smart, honest, innocent, etc. he is such an amazing little boy and we feel so blessed to have in our family. every night before my children go to bed i say to them, "thank you for letting me be your mama." how very blessed i am! i love you bug!

ward christmas party

last night we had our ward christmas party. it was such a fun night. what made it so great was being with all of our friends. we have been so blessed to have wonderful friends. i love going to church or any church functions because i can see those that i love so much. the theme of our party was a hawaiian christmas. the food was yummy and the entertainment was great! our dear friends planned most of it, but are in hawaii for the next little while working. they called last night and were so thrilled that it went so well.
i love this time of year and am constantly witnessing little miracles on a daily basis.
i am so blessed.
i am so grateful for the family that i was blessed to be born into and for the family that my practically perfect husband and i have been blessed with.
as Elder Neal A. Maxwell said--"the lord is truly in the very details of our lives." how wonderful it is to see it!
