Last night a group of us went to Temple Square, walked around and enjoyed the lights as well as each other! We went to see the Joseph Smith movie after. Very moving. He was an amazing man, to be able to stay so strong through all of that! WOW! But most of all Emma!!! What an amazing woman! What amount of faith she had to have just from Joseph's word! Losing 5 children, and watching Joseph be tarred and feathered, moving from place to place... going through all of that, based on Joseph's word! Incredible amount of faith.
The temple was gorgeous of course. Every time I visit the temple it NEVER ceases to amaze me of its incredibility and its beauty! Every time I look at it, and go inside my heart grows for it more and more each time! There is NO doubt that when the pioneers built that temple that the Hand of God was in EVERY step of it. It is SO AMAZING!!!
There is a quote in the Joseph Smith movie that really stood out to me. It was while some of the persecutions that were going on towards Joseph and Joseph was wondering what to do, and Hyrum said something to Joseph that really struck me... He said, "Whatever happens, the Lord is in it."
Meaning that as long as we are doing what we are supposed to be doing, and following the Lord in all that we do, then everything WILL BE OK, IT WILL! And there is no need to fear because we are in the Hands of God!!! And he will take care of us! :)

This Last Sunday I had 4 tickets to The First Presidency Devotional and so I took some of my friends! It was fun! Afterwards we had some WELL bonding time sittin in the bottom level of the parking for 2 hours without moving a single inch. It was funny to watch the way people chose to entertain themselves during the wait. Lol.


I Love our Girls' Nights! This month we went to Macaroni Grill! We were missing a few this month(Shayla and Alaina...& Stace of course because she lives in St. George) and even though we missed them it was still SO good to get together with everyone again! Every month, it NEVER gets old! :)

Thanksgiving was SO much fun!!!!

This year was Thanksgiving with my mom's side of the family! And yes, we had thanksgiving in a church... again. (Don't think we'll ever be back in a house... unless someone buys a mansion.) We had LOTS of food... numm! Lunch/Dinner was at 1:30 and we played volleyball, basketball and cards all day till 10:30! All the kids had a BIG blow up bouncy jump/slide thing to play on! It was AWESOME!!

After all the scrumptious food me and some of my aunts and cousins went black friday shopping... AAAH! We have been doing it every year for a couple years now but this year was exceptional because we shopped from midnight until 12:30 the next day!!! Wow! I don't know how we did it. We were practically sleep walking! But, nevertheless it was fun. And the sleep thereafter was amazing! I slept for 21 hours!!!! 1:30 in the afternoon until 10:30 the next morning!

It was great! But next year, I vote for a lil shorter trip. :)
