I do love where I live. I love the things I can do with my life. I have a very blessed good life. The other day I walked into the church to teach scouts. I had to stop as the light from the window was shining right on the Lord in Israel. I have such a special place for Israel in my heart because Safra lived there for so long and because I got to travel and live there for 2 months. I could count many times a day when I know and am shown the Lords love and his hand in my life. Just the sunrises next to my house is a good start.

Ella Lynn got baptized on April 9th. We had been talking about baptism for several weeks in Family Home Evening. My little family is growing up. Nellie braided her hair back so it wouldn't float up in the water. Abby was fascinated by the whole thing. She talks about getting baptized all the time and getting married.

We also had Jonah, Everett and Marshall come stay at our house for a long weekend. So fun, and not too hard! The kids all play together. It was a pretty cold weekend so we played inside most of the time. But when 6 kids can mostly get themselves ready for bed on their own, its great for me!
We got to go to Thanksgiving Point Dinosaur Museum with our cousin Megan. Lots of exciting things to see. Abby was relieved to know the dinosaurs were all dead. We also got to check out story time at Wheeler Farm. There are so many things I need to do with Abby that I used to do with Tyler and Ella. We are getting there... slowly... mostly she just gets dragged around to whatever the two older ones are doing!

The snow was so high that I could climb up on the mound of snow and look in the window and see the living room We went sledding with all the fun random clothes we could find up there (my period button won't work so oh well!)| We hiked around and saw the beaver dams. We crossed the bridge and tromped around in the thicket.
It was two nights of fun but at some point Abby was bound to crash She put her self to sleep in the chair quiet nicely. Sarah and I didn't bring up much treats so when we pulled out the rice krispy treats the kids were crowding. Cara did try to watch some of the final basketball tournament up there. she spent some fun time hanging out by the closet to get better reception
We tried out the crazy swing up there. With so much snow it wasn't too scary. When we came back Abby wanted to climb in the dryer because she knew it would be warm.

One of Abbys favorite things is to go to Story Time at the Library. She loves her "Teacher" Ann. And she love to sing the songs all week that she does there. She loves to wonder what craft they will do that week. They made a cute frog one week. The tongue flipped out and was a hit. Abby also gets to go shopping with Aunt Linda and I once a week. We bought cookies one week and she wanted a carrot instead. (she gets that from Darren!)
We enjoyed the Trafalaga Fun center one weekend. Abby loved the Frog Hopper. It drops you really fast up and down. We also thought the rock climbing was fun. Abby climbed higher then Journey and Ella.
I have a picture of Tyler in the dryer when he was 2. So when he climbed inside of it a few weeks ago at the age of 10 I had to get a picture again. Tyler wrote down his favorite things from the past year at school. A couple of my favorite were...
9. I hiked Angels Landing
8 I rode 15 miles on my bike
6. I joined the track team
1. I learned organ
We gad a great time with cousins at Jennys hotel pool. We are so excited she is moving down here.
