The New Year

Today is the last day of the year. I can't believe all the blessings that have come our way. So many things have happened.
Now we are getting ready for this new year and some new adventures.
Of course we have goals to set and goals to continue working on. Some of these are the basics. Be more charitable. Learn and live the gospel principles. Have a home filled with the love and spirit of God.Take better care of ourselves. Organize ourselves. Be more dedicated. Pin It

Winter Wonderland

I have loved the snow. There are always cons that go with it (wet floors, clothes, boots, cold fingers, icy roads), but the pros beat them out. First of all, the kids (Jayden and Katia) play out side more now than they did in the fall. I have tried to get Delta and Emma to play out with them, but they haven't figured out the snow suits yet. Today we invited Kaylee and Autumn over to play. they went out after lunch and I don't expect them in until nap time. Even with this wet snow that is falling, they are having a blast. They made a slide, then turned it into a snowman. Then they went into the back yard to play "house". Jayden loves to shovel the walks and drive. He also loves to make snow angels. Katia will go out when he does and she'll make paths in the snow or jump on the trampoline. (No, we haven't taken it down yet.) They will even play in the sand box or fort.
So I am praying for the snow to continue. Thankfully it looks like it will continue until after the Christmas break.
I will hopefully add some picts later. Pin It

Kaysville Momma: Funny Visiting Teaching Video

Here is one of my New Years Resolutions. I really need to be better at getting my visiting teaching done. Sometimes when their schedule doesn't fit in my schedule, I think that it can't get done. I need to make more of an effort to make it fit. Pin It

When we first started recycling,. I was so overwhelmed. I now had to wash my trash. What else could be added to my overflowing list of to-dos?! We have lots of recycling, as I'm sure you can imagine. This means that we end up with lots of containers in need of rinsing out. Well, I have found an easy way to accomplish this daunting task. Get the kids involved.
Our children love to play in the water, especially the bath. So when I have an empty shampoo, soap, lotion, or body wash bottle, I give it to them in the tub to rinse out. It keeps them busy with a new 'toy" and does a chore at the same time. Pin It

FHE using Nursery Manual

With the new nursery manual out, FHE for little kids is a snap. All you do is hand it to an older sibling who can read and tell them to pick a lesson. Here is where you can find it online. Just click on the chapter you would like to focus on for the week. And the nice thing is that the manual has the pictures in it for each lesson. So simple, so easy, so perfectly perfect. Pin It

Muffin Tin Monday

For this week we did an easy thing with some quick favorites. We alsoo decided that for Christmas we would use our jello molds for the tins. So easy and right in our cupboard.
We had carrots, ranch, noodles, and snack crackers. Pin It
