Serving the Lord

I was just sustained today as the new...
Young Women's President
in our ward! I am SO excited to be able to work with the Youth! I have never served with the Youth before and am now realizing what a BIG undertaking this will be. Nevertheless, I know this is where the Lord wants me to be. In subtle ways I was very much being prepared for this! I know that as I am faithful in serving the Lord and building up His Kingdom that He will bless me and my family with the things that we stand in need of.

Baby It's Cold Outside

Emry is sick so we stayed in all day yesterday and will probably do so again today! But even if she wasn't sick I don't think we would be going anywhere...

Currently it is 8 degrees with a wind chill factor of -4 degrees due to humidity! (High of 20 today)

I grew up in Utah where it snowed all winter and it was pretty cold. But, with the humidity here, when it gets cold you just don't go out! Oh and just to tell you how bad it is... School was cancelled today due to cold weather. HAHA!

The nice thing about living in the South is that when it does get this cold it doesn't last long. It is supposed to get right back up to 40 again by tomorrow!

So what to do on a cold day?

There is no snow, so no reason to be outside. We will just stay in and stay close to the fire, play games, read many books, and maybe roast some marshmallows, and drink hot cocoa!

Hooray for Old Friends!

What did I do this afternoon while the kids were napping??

I was about to attempt folding the mounds of laundry on my bed, and doing the dishes in the sink, and organizing the pile of coupons on the kitchen table but the phone rang...

It was an old Friend

We had much to talk about since we do not live near each other! It felt so good to just sit back and chat for an hour. Thanks Katie for calling. It made my day!

Now I am ready to tackle the chores!
