BrookLynne's B-day, Momorial Day/FHE

Yesterday BrookLynne turned TWO! We celebrated her birthday early so that we could have some close friends in attendance; but we also had a few cupcakes and a candle on her actual birthday!

Today was Memorial Day and we were able to visit the girls Great, great, great grandmother Lucia- This is who we named Lucia after. I know that I have other relitives in Utah Cemitarys but I dont know who or where? Grandma do you know?

Then for FHE tonight we went to Diamond Fork Canyon and Ros-ted marshmallows, went on a walk and had a lesson on Eternal Families given by Ty

Thats it for now!!!

Natalie's Graduation from High School

I have decided that this blog is really pretty much for my grandma Becky and for my Daddy- Two people who I love dearly and admire- They mean the world to me and I love them so very much! Now that dosent mean that I dont love everyone else too =0)

My two brothers and mommy came to visit for Natalie's graduation. It was so chaotic here! Not to mention everyone was stepping on everyone elses toes! Besides the bumpy moments it was nice, fun and exciting!

We went up to the cabins in Junction for a night- That was fun! Here are a few pictures of that! (Above) We missed you daddy, Bubba, Joey , sonja and Josh!

Graduation was Thursday here are a few pics from that I hope that you were able to "be there" through some pictures!

The Beehive house and activity days

Today is a busy day! Morning came too soon and today is going by too fast. There are not enough hours in the day to get everything done! I woke up this morning to my family showing up at my door! Natalie graduates this Thursday night from American Leadership Academy. I wish that my dad was here as well. I miss him. I miss the older boys as well. After my mom showed up we had to go to my mother in laws to get everything ready for the afternoon commitments that I had/have.

I taught this morning on Prayer to the Beehive Home old ladies it was a beautiful lesson, I only say that not to boast but because the spirit testified this to me. We started the lesson with the song Did you think to Pray from the Hymn Book- THis was my grandfather Samuel Howard Judds favorite hymn; or at least it was his favorite at the time that I asked him. I then shared two scriptures with them 1. is my favorite scripture Alma 37:37

aCounsel with the Lord in all thy doings, and he will direct thee for bgood; yea, when thou liest down at night lie down unto the Lord, that he may watch over you in your sleep; and when thou risest in the cmorning let thy heart be full of thanks unto God; and if ye do these things, ye shall be lifted up at the last day.

I bore my testimony of this verse and the importance that it has had in my life. I then shared this scripture and handout with each of the sisters

We sang a closing song "Did you think to Pray" and enjoyed Lemon Bars after a closing Prayer by my husband Tyler

Ill have to write about activity days later because I have to run to that right now!

Do you ever just feel tired? feeling like you are the sun ready to set over the horizon? I do. I feel like I am trying so hard to set lately but everyime im about to rest for the evening I am pulled up by invisible puppet strings bright and full as a summers day. Not only do I feel like I never have the chance to set but I feel like I am expected to warm the whole earth at once; and that my rays can never reach ever corner. I feel like I always hit the wrong spots and seem to burn or give skin cancer to the spots that arnt even needing, wanting or expecting sun; the spots that want to be cold are the spots that I seem to always overexpose.

What I am trying to say is that IM TIRED!

Aside from being tired I am enjoying life.

I love being a mom there is nothing like being a mommy.

But like I said I AM TIRED!

Tonight we went on a drive up Spanish Fork/Dimond Fork canyon!! We were not planning on stopping but did; and boy am I glad! We ended up finding some campgrounds with picnic tables and fire pits.

BrookLynne had a blast - I think that the whole canyon could hear us singing "Jesus wants me for a Sunbeam" with a huge emphasis on BEAM! Hand actions and all!

Lucia had a blast looking at all the beautiful nature around here

Natalie and Tyler put together a fire with what was lying around and Natalie just happened to have a lighter from burning her shoes earlier---ya I dont know either you will have to ask her.

Then we met some random people up there and bought 6 huge marshmellows off of them for a dollar

All in all we had a great time

I wish you could of been with us!!!

The rest of the last year at a Glance

The day she finally came home!
