FHE- God's Creations

We had a fun Family Home Evening about God's Creations.  For our activity, we took the camera outside and had Lily and Amara find 5 of God's Creations to snap photos of.  Here's what they found all on their own:
Dirt

Clouds


Flowers

Ants

Grass


Easter 2009

We had fun visiting family in Utah Valley this past Easter.  We stayed at Steve's parents home and had a lovely Easter Day with them.  We also went to the AF city Easter egg hunt on Saturday morning, then to the Lauret Easter egg hunt later that afternoon.  We had a bunch of fun everywhere we went.  Needless to say, we accumlated much in the way of sweets and toys.

Take a few minutes to view some video and photos of Lily and Amara over our Easter holiday.

Lots More Ears

Lily did really well during conference.  On her own, she sat quietly on the couch and listened, for the most part.  But near the end, she was restless and came next to me and started talking, not directly to me, but just chatting away about whatever.  I was wholly concentrating on the speaker and intently writing notes, so I asked her to speak a little quieter.  That's when I heard her whisper this phrase.

"Aww.  I wish you had lots more ears so you could listen to the prophets and listen to me at the same time."

Feeling guilty, I was reminded of the LDS commercials promoting making time to listen, "Isn't it about time?"  So, I paused General Conference (another reason to get a DVR if you don't have one), and asked Lily what she wanted to talk about.  She didn't have anything she wanted to talk about.  She was just bored.
