Miss you Mom

This post has taken forever. I still don't have pictures up loaded (so slow) it's hard to believe that mom has been gone for over a month now. The time has passed so quickly. Staying busy has helped I guess, but then again it has kept me from actually morning her. I have already caught myself from calling her when I had something to tell her about the kids. And I have just broken down and cried because I miss her so much, and hearing her voice tell me that things are going to be alright and that she loves me. Gathering for Easter and to celebrate Dad's birthday (which I will eventually post) was great, but mom was truly missed. Mothers are the glue, they provide the warm hugs and smiles, although Dad has gotten much better at that and truly looks forward to visits from his children. It's always been true to me that having even one person missing in my house truly makes a difference. They are gone, their spirits are not with us. Everyone is different and contributes something different.

Her funeral was really sweet. Gordon you did a hard thing,but you did it very well. I know mom was proud of you. The talks, the music, everyone who came to tell us of their love for our mother was so comforting. She was very loved and will be misses so much. I look forward to the day I see her again, and I will. We will know each other, we will love each other, and we will have a lot to catch up on. Till that day mom, I pray I will make you proud to be my mom. I love you!

Katie's Baptism

Katie Miller was baptised on March 2nd (that is how far behind I am on blogging) It was up there as one of the most beautiful baptisms that I have experienced. Katie is a friend of Tory's, but that friendship developed after getting to know here through Mandi Gardiner. Katie and Mandi are good friends who met through track team at school. Mandi brought Katie to church on sundays and Katie seem to be interested in what she was learning. She has been such a sincere seeker, and really desires to learn and discover truth. Her testimony is amazing, and growing everyday Tory says. Tory and Katie are in the same ceramics art class at school and have lots of opportunity to talk and get to know each other. When Katie decided to get baptized she asked Tory to baptize her. What an honor is was for Tory. It was an experience he will never forget! The joy that she felt coming out of the water was just beautiful. The wonderful thing about the gospel is that we are always learning always striving to become all that our Savior needs and wants us to be. He wants only our happiness, and that happiness comes from knowing Him and living His gospel and applying his gift of the atonement daily so that we can have the Holy Ghost with us so that we can be lead and guided to reach our full potential and that is to become like Him. What a great example Katie has been to all of us. She has reminded us of the Covenants that we made at our own baptisms.

Princess Deneen and Princess Lisa

Tri-stake women's conference was so uplifting, and inspiring. I invited my friend Deneen to go with me. I think that she enjoyed it. There were so many great topics: FAITH- we must have sufficient faith to get through the hard times. FAMILY- When a child knows who they are, A Child Of God, they are more likely to reach their potential. RELIEF- If we all did our 1/12th we could change the world. And most of all we were all reminded that we are of Royalty, Daughters of our Heavenly Father, we are Princesses.

New Do :)

My new haircut. Love it! Thanks Natalie.

Primary Class Activity

I am so very far behind. SO much has happened over the last month, and I can't even post everything. It takes forever to download pictures, and then it freezes and I have to start all over, so I post one at a time, therefore there will not be alot of pictures. (alot for me that is)
Feburary was a busy month. I had a primary class activity. So fun, they all came over to my home and we baked cookies and cupcakes, decorated them and took them to some dear friends to let them know that we love them. Of course I had to feed them so after our visits we went for pizza. They are some of the sweetest kids I know, so grateful that I get to be with them every sunday and anytime we plan fun time together!

Baking and decorating, being silly and visits with Myrtle and Flora
