Bored out of my mind:

Well, not much has been going on in our life as you can see with no posts. We are having a small get together tomorrow with a bunch of friends to play a game called Killer Bunnies. It is a really fun game but it tends to last for about 2 hours. We are having dinner and then a bunch of goodies. Cris's friend is coming from AZ for the weekend.

My sister invited us to come up to Randolph this weekend (in the middle of nowhere), it is past Bear Lake about 30 minutes away from Evanston, WY. We were going to go horseback riding, carve pumpkins, and dye my hair but now it is going to rain/snow. This has ruined all of our plans and I am so SAD. My sister is so alone up there and wants visitors and every time anyone plans to go visit her, something comes up. It would have been so much fun.

My latest adventures with the kiddos is putting up a tent with blankets and chairs. Cayten is constantly pretending it is raining outside. He has so much fun. Yesterday we taught him the chicken dance. He thought it was pretty funny.

Today is my SIL birthday. She is living in St. George going to school and really misses her family. Happy Birthday Lit!

I wanted to post a bit about conference. It is really hard to REALLY pay attention with two kids. I am so grateful they print it out for us in Nov Ensign.
The two talks I liked the most were Bednars talk about prayer and Wirthlin's talk about laughing it off. I have really taken to heart the part in Bednars talk where he is telling a story about a meeting with an apostle at his home and also finding out about a friend that had passed on. The apostle asked his wife to only say what they were thankful for and not ask for blessings. I have done that the past 2 nights and it really helps you think about your prayers, really talk to Heavenly Father, and not get into a routine. What were your favorite parts?

I also loved Elder Wirthlin's talk about laughing it off. I have struggled with my attitude lately and I loved when Elder Wirthlin said, "If you feel like groaning, laugh." It has helped so much. Sometimes I feel stupid just laughing out loud but it helps me so much.

I LOVED Worthlin's talk too. His stories were so funny. I needed to hear that. I'm working on my prayers too. Sorry your weekend trip didn't work out. It's nice and sunny here, what's the deal????

Hey Miss Callie! Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog so I could come find yours. You need more pictures of yourself, it took me a minute to figure out who you were. At first I thought of another Callie, but I didn't think she had any kids. Finally I got down to the hospital pic. Your family is ADORABLE! You look happy.
