Like many of you, I am a Fan of General conference. Each day when I choose to read a new conference talk I become more and more amazed and in greater awe in the men and women who are called to lead this church at this time.

Sister Dalton's talk "A Return to Virtue" lifted me up today. You will have to read it for yourself and see if you get a spiritual boost too.


After she described what virtue is and why she hopes now more than ever we seek for it and live virtuous lives she wrappes it all up. I love the very last paragraph the most.

"I testify that a return to virtue is possible because of the Savior's example and the "infinite virtue of His great atoning sacrifice" I testify that we will be enabled and strengthen no only to do hard things but to do all things. Now is the time for each of us to arise and unfurl a banner to the world calling for a return to virtue. May we so live that we can be instruments in preparing the earth for HIS second coming. "that when he shall appear we shall be like him,.. purified even as his is pure"

I was very impressed by Kevin's Spontienity last weekend. He was scheduled for a 3 day weekend and knew that it would be several weeks until he would have another break. So last minuet we booked a hotel room, clipped 2/1 coupons out of the Boys Lego magazines and off we went. We kept it a secret from the boys. while driving them to school we told them the good news. It took them a few hours to get their head wrapped around the idea that they were actually going to LEGOLAND!!

We had a great time. It was neat to finally see what it was all about. Defininately a great park for 3-7 year olds. The rides are simple. There's a splash pad and little lego play spots all along the way. Austin and Riley loved the factory tour. They are all about learning how things are made. I was really proud of Riley for riding some rides that looked really scary to him at first. Little by lttle he is starting to over come his fear of high places.

January was a great time to go.... short ride wait times!! and Beautiful weather. 78 degrees.

Thanks dad for a super fun weekend.

Our little Sweet Pea-LYDIA

The other day we took Lydia for some pictures. I was plesantly surprised how cute they turned out-seeing how earlier that morning she was on a crying fit and wouldn't take a nap. I had planned it out perfectly and thought that our "great day" of napping the day before would carry over. Here is a looksie.
