5 Thoughts
1. I am reading a Christmas story!  Not the Christmas story (you're going to shoot your eye out!), but a story that takes place at Christmas time.  No I am not setting up for Christmas yet, just reviewing the book for the author; loving it so far.  Don't worry will tell you all about it soon.

2. Have you seen Christmas stuff in the stores yet? I have.  Way way too soon, we haven't even bought Halloween costumes yet!  Lucas said he wasn't going to dress up this year, but I think we may have convinced him too.  He is only 10 (okay he will be 11 next week), he definitely needs to still do it!

3. I got my bookshelf for my craft room all put together, today I plan on painting the desk then everything should start falling into place; I am excited.

4. Alex had a great soccer practice on Wednesday; it was the first time since joining club that I have just really seen that spark, that extra aggressiveness that she used to have.  I think the newness of club, the intensity, the level of the girls and the game just overwhelmed her at first, she had to think about things a lot; but now it seems to be all clicking again.

5. I am fighting a cold, in some ways I feel like I am losing.. I cannot lose, too much going on.  It will be wonderful this Sunday being able to watch church in my pajamas with the semi-annual General Conference.  I am so looking forward to this weekend of inspiration and hope; it is always amazing.

5 Pictures
Red-headed twin
Ryder had a red-headed twin on the team they played against on Saturday, out of the field it was almost hard to tell them apart, their similar uniforms compounded it.  
Off to Women's Conference

Have you seen Christmas stuff in the stores yet?


  1. Such great pictures! I'm very impressed that your little one is making his own sandwich. So cute.

  2. I hope you stave off that cold. That's no fun! It's a good thing we do have conference this weekend. You can stay home from church, but still go to church. Win-win!

  3. I actually bought my first Christmas Gift today. Trust me, that isn't normal for me.
