Catching Up

Calgary Temple Dedication - I am a little late in posting this, but it was a great experience.  It was late getting started and Leah was getting a little anxious. We loved watching Pres. Monson with the kids.  We got there early and sat down, a couple minute later this family that was sitting behind us needed more room and moved up in front of us.  They are all very tall.  The girls and I could not see anything after that.  I had swapped babysitting with some families but because we started late and have a long drive they just made it for the second session.  I would have liked to have Blake there but know he would not have sat patiently for that long.  I am glad the girls got to go.  Who know if they will get that chance again.  There are so many temple going up and I don't know where they will end up, so you never know.

It's Official - As every one knows, Dave is constantly measuring Cora and I.  Last night when he did he deemed it official.  Cora has surpassed me in height.  No big surprise there:)

Christmas Wish List - We got our wish lists ribbon up Nov. 1st.  The kids have had a great time going through wish books and just idea that they have and putting them up.  They can put up ten items.  If they get something else they want then they have to decide if they are going to take one down or give up the new one.  Leah has written down a Maplelea Doll 5 times.  I think she may really want one.  I can't believe how fast Christmas is coming.


  1. Your christmas wish list ribbons are a cute idea. I need to have my boys write down some ideas - they seem to have a new favorite every day.

  2. Sorry about the tall family. Have had that happin befor. Love the idea on the Christams wish list.

  3. great Christmas list idea! I like how they can add to it or take away from it.

  4. Well, I was going to comment on your Christmas ribbons, but seeing everyone else has... I am glad you guys made it to the temple dedication. What a neat experience! Doesn't Pres Monson have the best sence of humor?
