Magical

Its Christmas Eve, the kids are in bed and Steve is wrapping presents. I am sitting here thinking about Christmas and how magical it is. Tonight my heart is so full. It is full of love for my family. My kids, my sweet husband, my amazing parents, my grandparents, Steve's parents and family... I could go on and on. I am grateful for Christ. I have felt him near today... I want to cry like a baby as I sit here and reflect on the day and hear music from Chances room... First song: I am a child of God. Second song: If the savior stood beside me. We have been so blessed. I have enjoyed watching Chance really get into the spirit of Christmas! He is so excited! Kami has been so sweet and fun too! I have so much to tell about today.... but it will have to be another day... But I do want to mention the gifts we recieved from my parents. My mom made us books this year. They are so amazing. I hope she knows that we will always cherish those books and the memories contained in them! I want to repeat something Nephi said. "I have been born of goodly parents." I hope this magic continues for a long time for everyone! Merry Christmas!

So much to do... so little time

I have been wanting to blog and just let everyone know we are still here and doing well. Things have just been so busy! I went to Twilight and that was an experience!! That is a blog post all on its own... Steve and I celebrated our 4 year anniversary! We went to dinner and did some shopping without any kids! It was really nice! We decided that next year we need to leave home!! So wish us luck with that! I just want to let Steve know that after four years I still love him so much and I am excited for us to have more time together when he finishes school. We had Thanksgiving, and it was so good to spend time with Family and the food was good! We have so much to be grateful for! Including our sweet children! Well, we think they are sweet even though Chance has been a naughty boy (especially in nursery... he thinks hitting is really fun now.) We went shopping the day after Thanksgiving and it was a ZOO! but we found some really good deals and got our shopping and wrapping mostly all done!! So that feels great! There is just so much going on, but we love the holidays! I'm excited to get the house all decorated, so it will feel more like Christmas! I also just have to say that I love my calling! I was put in as a Sunday School teacher for the 14-15 year olds and it has forced me to study the scriptures more often and I love it! I feel like it is inviting the Spirit into my life and I love the things I am learning. Well I have so many things that I have wanted to post and haven't lately, but I will catch up soon hopefully... but here are a few little notes and stories... Kami started sitting up and rolling this past week! Chance has started falling asleep in really random places and positions. Kami has found that falling asleep in Daddy's arms really is fun. One of Chance's new favorite things is "Moowie night" (movie night) He loves Kung Fu Panda, Wall-e, and any Santa Moowie. He also loves to say "ho ho ho, moowy Christmas!" STEVE will be done with another semester on Friday and then he will only have two more semesters until he is done!!! Well that is a few random things going on in our lives at the moment! Oh, one more thing... Kami learned to play with her doll! I am posting a video of it! videoIts pretty funny!

Who do I look like?
