conference is coming

With General Conference coming soon I decided I needed to do more to help my kids enjoy it. So I have been searching the internet for great ideas. Many people have already made these information cards about the prophets and apostles, but the perfectionist in me just wasn't happy with what I was finding. So I decided to make my own. It was a fun a project and I really enjoyed learning a little more about our church leaders. You are welcome to copy these or if you want me to e-mail you the file then leave a comment. 

As a sidenote, I made them to that I can put the information side on the back of the picture side and then laminate them. Nothing is really complete until its laminated....

oldies but oh so goodies

I am working on a project for Adam's 8th birthday coming up (yep, he'll be 8...I can't believe it) and so I have been going through a bunch of old pictures. It has been so fun. I miss my little kids. I probably didn't enjoy them as much as I should. Then again, maybe I did. I don't really remember...

Lily off to play soccer...she was in kindergarten

At the water park...Gracie is only 1.

Adam with Mr. Peeps (RIP). Both were so little. 

A sight we won't be seeing again in our makes me sad. I miss having a little baby around.

Kindergarten Lily at Gardner Village

OREOS!!!!!! Mmmmmmm

kindergarten field trip with Grandma

Adam's fourth birthday...I was pregnant with Davie and soooooo sick.

Oh crazy Gracie....we would always find her in the most entertaining positions sleeping.

first day of school...

We had our first day of school this week. I was sooooooo nervous sending Gracie. I have never really unleashed her to the world without me being close by. She did great and is LOVING school and her teacher. Plus she makes the cutest kindergartner ever!

Adam started 2nd grade. He loves his new teacher and is making new friends.

Lily started 4th grade. He ADORES her teacher (who is the perfect fit for her). Everyday she comes home beaming and happy. It is wonderful.
