The girls went sledding today at the eagle mountain golf course with uncle Paul and Raquel and Reese! Nate slid down with Brenna on his lap on a tube. it was a gorgeous huge place to go sledding. they got going soo fast! So fun. I stayed most of the time with Layla and Grandpa in the warm car. Then it was lunch on grandpa at Article circle. After we went home and played lots of UNO with grandpa. Brenna tells grandpa,"you are going DOWN!" As she and Dallas serve the draw 4. I think they wore him out with that. Then dinner at Applebee's treated by Grandpa again! We are getting spoiled' he said the best thing was that Layla walked into his bathroom tonight while he was in there by herself, gave him a hug and said she was going to bed. He couldn't believe it. She has been loving him! All the girls have. He says to me, they need some chocolate milk or another cookie!
Yesterday, the girls played in the snow in the front yard here. Nathan did lots of shoveling:). And then Pam and Ben had the girls up to decorate sugar cookies. They loved it and each got a plate of cookies to take home. Sadie could not stop talking, counting, and showing off her plate of cookies. The cookies looked fabulous that they all decorated!

We are warm inside Grandpas house after a long snowy drive from Ca! We almost didn't make it up to his house bc our van was swerving in the snow. ha ha. We r thinking it would have been smart to drive Nathan's 4 wheel drive. There is a ton of powder in his yard and the girls like jumping in it! Today we played a bunch of UNO and old maid after playing in the snow. It's so fun to be here. Kathy, Pam and Ben came by today!

Dallas's Baptism

I think I felt pure joy at Dallas's baptism. I was so happy for her and proud of her. I rejoiced in her growing testimony and faith. She said, " I am so glad I did that!" She was the most happy I have ever seen her. She looked beautiful and poised.  I was grateful for Nathan. I am grateful to be a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I am so grateful for Jesus Christ and the atonement, that will allow us to be resurrected with our loved ones someday. I am grateful for the opportunity we all have to be baptized into the Lord's church! 
I appreciated everyone who came to the baptism. We had a great turnout.  The kids sang, "When I am Baptized" and Grandpa got called up to give his testimony which was really special.
