Our Families Favorite Quote

As a being of power, intelligence, and the master of his own thoughts, a man holds the key to every situation, to make his life what he chooses it to be. When he discovers the divine power within his soul, he can lead his life to a God-like nature. If one dreams lofly dreams, so shall he become. There is magic in the way one thinks. If we expect the worst, we will get the worst. If we expect the best, we will recieve the best. If we train our minds to have faith in God and ourselves, we are using one of the great laws of life. If we think and live righteously, happiness will find its place in our lives. It is amazing when we expect the best how forces are set in motion which cause the best to materialize. Our thoughts, more than circumstances determine the coarse of our lives. Outward circumstances do not determine the coarse of our lives as much as the thoughts that habitually occupy our minds. These thoughts carve their impression on our faces, in our hearts, and on the tablet of our eternal souls.

Random thoughts to journal

Yesterday we were driving to the store and Jordyn said "Mom I learned that there are taste bugs, and I know that they help you to taste your food!" I love to hear cute things like that.....taste bugs, taste buds, whatever right!! I thought that it was cute. Jade then said "oh sweetie, do you mean taste budddddds, with a d not a b? Jordyn then thinks for a minute and then said is that right mom? I explained it to her and so now she nows they are taste buds:) Jade and I got a kick out of Jordyn, she is learning so much these days that Jade and I are so amazed by her, lots of fun. I hate to think my days are growing short for when she will be in school all day:( On the other hand she is counting every minute!

Ty spends his days outside already him and chewy are just little buddies, very cute to see them just walking around the backyard together, If Ty is out by himself without chewy then chewy is sitting by the back door watching his every move!

Today Jade went to school for 1/2 a day, Jordyn and I cleaned side by side, she told me that she would clean the dishes whenever I wanted her to and she even wanted to help with the toilet and said she loves to clean but Mom, it is not fun cleaning rooms huh! She really loves to clean anything but her room these days, Jade on the other hand will clean their room so for now I guess that works for now:)

I colored my friends hair. Then spent all afternoon coloring with the girls and my sister Holly, we all love to color:) Justin walked into the kitchen and said "so we are having a coloring fest huh!"

Ty is my only child that has put his shoes on the wrong feet, he is obssessed with shoes these days. Usually when he wakes up he wants his shoes on.
Ty also is into cars the movie very much lately he will watch it everyday and I have to usually turn it off! He has a car shirt from his grandma Colette that he LOVES, he has a cars sippy cup ummmmm cars bib, the actual cars ya he's gone car crazy. He love hot dogs and will go knock on the fridge and say "dog mom". He tells people "excuse me" to get through them, funny that he has picked up on that. He went on his first motorcyle ride this year with his dad.

Jade is doing well in school she is very good at memmorizing, she memmorizes a poem every month and loves to write poems. One that she just wrote is: Red and Blue,
The color of red is a color of love. The color of blue is my favorite lolipop. I love the sweet air above. I love the popcorn when it goes pop pop pop! I love colors and I am a girl who is a red an blue fan! Thank goodnes it's not tan!

Justin and I have the opportunity to teach the CTR 8 class this year, which is great because Jade is in the class. They are a good age to teach because they actually listen and participate! Jordyn is giving a talk today and I am so proud of her because this is the first talk that she can read it herself! She is so excited to do it and stand up there all by herself! This is her talk: " I would like to share a poem with you that talks about the Savior. Jesus is my Savior, for He rescues me from me. I'll try to explain just how to you. It's very clear to see. Heavenly Father sent me here To learn to choose the right. I can't get back to live with him unless I win the fight. Each day I have to make a choice Some days I seem to choose the path that leads away from Christ, and that's the way I lose. But God knew that I'd need some help, so Jesus said he'd come and be my Savior so I can try to be the best I can become. And when I try to change my ways- a better person be- I can succeed because of Christ who gave his life for me. I know that Jesus is my Savior because he died for my sins. I want to do all I can to follow his example and be worthy to live with him again someday.
