"Super Dad" Sunday

Sunday's are my favorite, you stay home with your family, you have a big Dinner, Eat lots of Treats, you get to be spiritually uplifted and you get to NAP! (which I did)

Cory is always Super Dad! But today he really was! Boston has been wanting to play Catcher for a long time, & Today Cory geared him up and Showed him how. They have also been working all weekend on their ship they have to make for Cub Scouts Pack Meeting on Thursday, It is so sweet.

3. Olivia....When she see's her daddy.

5. When your dog lays around the house and sleeps!

6. The love my "7" yr old has for The Prophet, Pres. Hinckley!

7. Olivia saying " I Love You & Jesus.

8. A Loving Husband! Who still takes my Breath away When he walks through that Door.

9. Cooking time with your Kids.

10. Sleeping Babies.

11. When Olivia points to the Picture on my fireplace and says..Parker.

12. Family, Family, Family!

13. Cousins, Cousins, Cousins!

Olivia is our little talker latley. She is saying so much, my favorite one is
"No...n't" ok so that's not a word, but its two words combined, and it's usually to Hayes! And she says "mommy's Eyes" "Pretty Bow" "Sausage Hot""Jacket on" and then when you put her jacket on she says "hat" (to put her hood on) "Hayes" "Botty"(Boston) "Sorry" "Thank you", and lots more, i won't bore you! It's just so adorable. She says them so clear too.
We need to help little Hayes-er Boy! JK ~ he understands everything, he just says the first syllable. But says "baby" "dog" "Hot" "ball" You know the little things that count! He is just too busy to talk.
They are so much fun! I love this age, even though they are all over the place.

Boston is a little "Heeley-er" He Heeley's all over the place, and is so good! Thanks to Brookie, who got him back into it, now he is all wheels!

We are awaiting the Return of Degun (our dog) tonight! He has been in Jackson Hole, with the Dog Whisperer (John & Tasha ~haha) So he is so much more calm and listening better! ( I know, I am a loser I can't even train my own dog)

John and Tasha ROCK! We Owe you big time!

I played on my sister mindy's Indoor Soccer League tonight! I am dying.... Holy cow that game can kick your butt! I didn't play so good the first Half but then I started feeling Aggressive and played forward and did good. It was fun to play. I haven't played since Boston was a baby. It was fun.

Boston is in Sleepover Heaven, Last night Charlee stayed the night, and tonight he was with me at my game, and was dying to have someone stay over, So now we have EsDee staying the night. We had a late night last night too and played with our neighbors "Disney's Scene it" Which we love! & WON!

Rainy Days......

I love these rainy days.....Baseball practice is cancelled and we all get to stay inside! We were sitting in the Hot Tub tonight when a Huge thunderstorm came. It was so fun to watch. You can see it in the background starting to come our way.

I just got done DE Junking my Play room. I went through all of the Cupboards and got rid of all of the junk toys or old ones! I love how clean and bare it is. Now I can start in the downstairs cupboards tomorrow.

Boston has turned into our little Jump Roper! He is always jump roping, or Hula Hooping. He is really good too. He wanted me to time him on his watch and he was hula hooping for 51 sec. Which is actually pretty long for me.

I am off to bed, I have to wake up at 6am for my run.... Oh that is soooo early.

Today was so Amazing! We (witney and I) went to the 2nd session of General Conference this afternoon. It was fabulous, The talks were amazing, I especially love the Talk by Jefferey R. Holland,He ended it Perfectly! What a great Opportunity for me to be able to be in the Presence of the Prophet, Gordon B. Hinckley. I can't even explain the Feeling that I felt when he entered the Room. He is so Sweet, and I Just Love him.
The greatest, was when we sang at the end of the session "We thank thee O God for a Prophet" When the Choir sang, It was beautiful, but when the Audience started to sing, and then one by one , everyone stood up to sing to the Prophet. Everyone was crying, I couldn't even sing. The General Authorities were even wiping their tears. As He was leaving he kept lifting his cane to wave to us and Blowing Kisses.
The Spirit was so strong, that's probably one of the Greatest memories I will ever have.
And the closest I will ever be able to get to the Prophet.
What a wonderful experience for Witney too, We will always remember the 176 semi-annual General Conference.
