Single again..

It seems to me that I am very blessed when it comes to relationships. I get to date amazing, wonderful people. Darin was very much in this same category, but this relationship was not my forever.. Just so you know..

I am very happy to have had the experience of dating him.

Mccall troop!

Soooo, Darin and I and his girls are spending a few days in mccall before thanksgiving. it is a lot of fun!

It's very cold so we stay inside and do crafts or read. Today we went to the pancake house and had cinnamon rolls bigger than our heads. I had eggs and potatoes. Then we went to the gift store and looked around.. Now we are going on a trip around the lake.. We are singing songs and playing Riley's Ipod. Uncle Kracker is belting out "you make me smile"... It's a good day. It feels good to be me...

Happy Sunday!

Today is stake conference. I am excited to go listen to the messages given by our local church leaders. It will be 2 hours instead of 3 hours long.. So the kids are excited about that. It's funny that they prefer 2 hours of sitting still to one hour of sitting still and 2 hours of wiggle time, but they do. This morning as a family,we talked about how to repent and what kind of steps are taken after you make a big mistake. It was good for all of us to review and clarify things together. I love my wonderful children and I love helping them do good things. Today is already a great day, and it is just going to get better!

A great day for butternut squash soup!

Life has us on the run these days, but I am making a choice to slow down today and fill the house with the wonderful smell of soup! Williams Sonoma has the most delicious soup recipe on the planet! I crave it every time the seasons change. It's a sweet comfort food that I tried a few thanksgivings ago and have never been able to survive the cold without it! Look it up on thier website if you want to try it... Yumm!

Ah, yes.. Midterms!

It seems that school is wonderful until midterms.. and then it seems very difficult! I have to say that I cannot wait until thanksgiving! I will be equally welcome to christmas break and the end of the semester..

the kids have been through some difficult changes this year, but I am happy to report that they are all doing well in school. Ellen is loving being 11 and being able to go to activity days with her friends. Aaron is a happy boy who loves scouting and friends. Sebastian holds doors open for his mommy, tells her how much he loves her, and is continualy speaking of their wedding... which according to him has already happened! they are all wonderful children and I am blessed to be their mother.

Life is amazing and good and wonderful!
