Can you see me now?

It's true...she wasn't lying when she said she couldn't see the board in class. She is taking after her mommy in somethings. Because 3rd grade was when I got my first pair of glasses. I hated having glasses and none of them ever looked good on me. Analise didn't have that problem! Every pair we tried on looked great! These were our favorite!!! Doesn't she look adorable! Now let's hope they last for awhile. Glasses aren't cheap!

Turkey Hunt

Turkey anyone??? Cody went hunting and a few hours later this is sitting in my driveway! And of course Analise is hovering over it! She is always so fascinated by animals...dead animals. That sounds wrong but it's true! She is her daddy's girl!

Melts my heart!

When you find your daughter doing this.... It makes your heart melt!!! She told me that she really wants a set of scriptures like mine and a bag thing to carry them in! That will come very soon sweet girl!

Happy 8th Birthday!

Yes, my sweet baby is 8!!! We had the funnest birthday party ever! Mostly because Mom had to do very little work! No really it was great! We went to Flip 2 it in Roseville. The kids got to play hard for 60 minutes! While the staff decorated the room, wrote down the gifts, served the cake and ice cream and my favorite part they cleaned it all up!! The kids went home exhausted and I wasn't! Usually it's the opposite but I really enjoyed this one! I think she did also! We love you, Analise!

Questions from a 7 year old???

I know it's been awhile but I had to write about the questions that my 7 year old daughter asked me tonight while tucking her in bed. I'm just in awe!!!

Analise: "Mom, my brain is thinking and I just don't know how to ask this...but how do we live?"

Mom: "What do you mean, how do we live?"

Analise: "Well Heavenly Father made us...but who made Heavenly Father."

It stopped me in my tracks....I didn't want to confuse her more with the answer so I just said well that is not something you need to worry about because we just know why we came here and what we need to return to live with Him someday and that is all we need to think about.

She was okay with that answer....we said our prayers and then...

Analise: "Mom, how does Heavenly Father hear all our prayers...because what if someone else was praying right now?" is her brain thinking about these things at 7 YEARS OLD!!!!

My answer was ya know I don't know but I do know he answers and hears all of them. And then her real 7 year old thoughts said...yeah he probably has lots of ears!!!

Wow...I'm flabbergasted! I don't think any of these questions were on my mind until High school. It's amazing that I can have these conversations with her now. So next family home evening is going to be on Faith....

1st Day of 2nd Grade

My big 2nd Grader!! She is growing up way too fast! She is very excited to go to Mrs. Parr's class. And just to be going back to school. After I shed a few tears from having her around all day....I picked her up and she said, "Mom I think 2nd grade is longer than 1st grade was." I just laughed....!!!!
