New value added to the Young Women's Theme

We are daughters of our Heavenly Father,
who loves us, and we love Him.
We will "stand as witnesses of God at all times and in all things, and in all places" (Mosiah 18:9)
as we strive to live the Young Women values,
which are:
Divine Nature
Individual Worth
Choice and
Good Works
We believe as we come to accept and act upon these values, we will be prepared to strengthen home and family, make and keep sacred covenants, receive the ordinances of the temple, and enjoy the blessings of exaltation.
This value will be gold. I am so excited to announce this to our young women tomorrow at mutual and get a response. LOL now we have to change our skit quite a bit for New Bennings.

Elder Worthlin

Elder Joseph B. Worthlin passed away peacefully on December 1, 2008. He will be missed. I will always remember his talk on always being happy even though life is hard. There is probably a wonderful reunion happening right now with his wife, Elisa and other loved ones. He was a great man. He was 91 years old.

Christmas Tree and Lights

I always love the weekend after Thanksgiving because we get to put up the lights in our yard (and new fence) and decorate the little living room with decorations and tree.
The girls had a blast putting the ornaments on the tree...well, Ellie had a good time taking them off the tree. The tree has only been up for about 2 days and she already broke 3 ornaments. I decided after seeing this that we are going to wait for Santa to put his gifts under the tree before we put our's under it. I am not going to wrap and rewrap gifts all month. The girls are so excited and "ooh" and "ahh" as we drive by all the houses that have decorated. This is such a fun time of the year-especially with little ones.
Andrey was excited about putting up his "town" on top of the t.v. Thanks Amber for that. He was so excited and now we have a start to our collection.
