Your are tuning into the most beautiful young lady, inside and out. Your favorite color is teal and you love food just like your dad. We are blessed every day with your kind nature. I love watching you show love to your brothers by spending time with them and teaching them things. Being the only girl, you bring a softness to our home. I have loved watching your testimony grow. For the first time ever you are getting an opinion about what you want to wear. In our family photo above, this outfit was going to be the one and I tried to match everyone around it! You have spent so much time in the wilderness this year and with Grandma's pony, Chiquita. It is amazing how much that has shaped you! You have had a bunny and a hermit crab die this year. Your tears fell fast and it shows how much you love those creatures. Heavenly Father knew I needed you in my life and you make my whole heart happy!! I love you soo much Miss 9-year-old-girl!! Every year with you only gets better. Maybe we could skip the teen years though? Every now and then I get a glimpse of this inner-attitude you have and I am afraid. HAHAHA!! NAH!

This year, in our home we have been focusing a lot on prayers. Prayer works, I know it with all my heart. In fact, I couldn't live without that communication with our Heavenly Father. Mason is learning to pray. He watches the older kids and does his best to copy them. He loves to say his own little prayer and copy what the older ones are saying. It is very, very cute but more importantly it is teaching him at a young age to always talk to Heavenly Father. I love it.
Brandalyn is such a good friend. She always tries to get a visit into Blanding in the fall. It was just a weekend trip, but it was super fun, filled with lots of play and LOTS of projects to do!

Another Saturday means another hike! We headed South and it was much warmer. Jeremy took us to Natural Bridges. It was a lot of fun. Some parts were a little scary and had me sweating a little, but it was soo much fun!
Selfies with my handsome boys!!

Valentine's Day is pretty busy for me and I LOVE it! I usually wait till the last minute to think of what kind of scavenger hunt I am going to do for the kids. Plus Jeremy is super busy at the hospital's dinner cooking food for the town of Blanding! Do I sound bitter? I'm not. He's only done it for the past 3 years. But it makes him happy and that makes me happy.
