Holy Ghost

A couple of months ago I was cleaning the house with Kara (6 years old) and she asked me why we have so many pictures of Jesus. I told her because we love Him and want to remember Him. She than asked why we don't have any pictures of Heavenly Father. I told her we just don't really have any pictures of Heavenly Father. She got the biggest smile on her face and said " I know why we don't have any pictures of the Holy Ghost" Surprised I asked why. She said "that would be really weird" again I was surprised and asked why that would be weird. She said " A floating head?" I asked her what she meant she said "The Holy Ghost doesn't have a body!" I guess if you think about it it makes perfect sense. What a sweetheart. Sometimes I think we need to make sure our little sweethearts understand really what we mean.


Jessica is such a sweet girl. We are so blessed to have her in our family. She is always watching out for everyone else. She has a wonderful sense of what is right and she always wants to do it.

We love you Jess!

Brittany is our oldest! She is such a wonderful daughter. She always helps us with a smile on her face. She loves ballet, horses, being with her friends. She is working hard at school and her church goals. She always helps her sisters and brothers. I don't know what I would do without her. We love you Brit

Today has been a good day. Sometimes I get so caught up in life and the business of everything that I forget how very blessed I am. I have everything I have ever dreamed about! The worlds most wonderful husband. 7 beautiful, healthy children, and wonderful friends. Life is good. Today is my sweet Jess's birthday. It takes me back to the day she was born in Oklahoma. She has always been such a joy to us. Such a special girl. I also was playing with my babies - remembering this time last year Dave and I went to Guatemala to visit them for the first time. The hardest thing I ever did was spend a week with them and then have to leave them!!!!! Not knowing when we would be able to bring them home - everyon told me it would someday just be a memory - and it it. They are here! They are trully part of our family! I love my children so much! Such wonderful kidos!

Jessica's birthday

It is hard to believe our beautiful girl is 11. Where does the time go. Just yesterday Jess's teacher told me that she is the kindest, sweetest girl. She is so thoughtful and concerned for others. We are so very proud of her and the good choices that she makes.
Jess we love you!
