My Pinterest Page

I finally figured out Pinterest. I quite like it.
My Pinterest Page
 Nathan and Hannah were here today.
I simply love when they come visit.

Hannah sat by me to eat some raisins, and I told her when she was finished that we would call Grandpa at work. She got very excited. She was almost finished, but had a couple left. I said, "Let's go call Grandpa at work." She looked at me and said, "No, you have to have patience." I'm thinking she's heard that at home perhaps? :) I thought is was hilarious. She's only two.

Social Media

Earlier this week I heard a  
talk by Elder Bednar about social media.
      
I was deeply moved by his talk. I have always found it to be a wonderful experience to hear the words of one of the Lord's Apostles, and feel in that moment that it was as if the Lord was speaking the words Himself. That's how I felt about his talk. A lot of light bulbs went off in my mind, it made perfect sense to me, and I knew I needed to act on what I heard.

Because of hearing that talk, feeling the Spirit as I heard it, and and deciding to act on it; I joined Pinterest and Twitter, and I have been on Instagram for a while. It's been eye-opening and delightful. I am so thankful for the Apostles of the Lord. They have always been a blessing in my life.

Family Reunion

Jim's dad's side of the family held a family reunion this past weekend in Idaho. It was a lot of fun. Here's a few pictures.
We had a great time.
Sarah went with us.
And Hannah and Nathan.
Jim's parents hosted it.
His dad is doing so well.
Technically he drowned two years ago.
 He's doing great now.
The kids loved the barrel train.
Love this one of Jim's mom
 surrounded by some of her posterity.
Hannah is cute no matter where she goes.
 The location was really nice.
Jim and his sisters.
Reunions are just good things.

I'm Impressed

We have had the slowest internet connection known to man for the entire time we've lived in our current house. Last evening my husband got us connected up to a faster internet source, getting us about 25 mbps.
I am blown away by the difference. 
 (And Hannah & Nathan visited last evening adding to the joy).


Can I just say that my husband is my new hero?!
I think I will just have to make him some
 raspberry jam today as a thank you.
 
And I suppose I will have to blog more now
 because things will be so much less aggravating! :)

It's A Boy!

Today Ian and Jessa found out
 that they will be having a boy...
...a Christmas baby.

That's wonderful news.
