President Hinckley

Our dear Prophet, Gordon B. Hinckley passed away on Sunday, Jan 27th around 7pm. It is amazing how someone you never actually met can leave such an impact and imprint in you life. I love him and he will be missed. I am so grateful for his life and example. His knowledge and love for the Savior Jesus Christ was powerful. His humor was infectious. His example as a husband and father was remarkable. I smile to know that he is at "home" with his sweet companion and that he has finished his "job" in guiding and teaching us. We can truly celebrate his life by doing what he did - love and follow our Savior.

I also have a huge spot in my heart for Brigham Young University. This link is to a wonderful video about President Hinkley's influence on BYU and it's students. (Just copy and paste into your address bar)

Some Traditions Never Get Old

Nothing is more sweet (or funny) than the annual nativity skit...
this year we had a complete cast including our new Uncle Andrew as "the donkey"
and little Cole as the precious baby (He wasn't acting!).

Holiday Magic

From the visit to Santa (sorry for our crew santa)...

...to the family traditions (Mandy with Cade and Bart with Ty showing off our gingerbread houses)...

...to the excitment of Christmas morning (I wonder why we do so much for Christmas when they are thrilled with the simple things...we should have just stopped at the headband and mentos)...
The Holidays are Simply Magical!
