I love Sundays

Sunday means church, and ALL day just me and my boys. Today after church we went to the temple not too far from us- I love Sundays, I love my family, and I love the temple.
It was incredibly windy!
Brody started collecting pinecones like it was nobodies business.  We have pinecones galore in our backseat now.
He was so happy!  And the wind was making him laugh too.. since it was practically knocking him over!
It was a great day (:
Since Sunday is all about church and family in our house, I wanted to leave you with something church- and then something family..

"From my own experience with life’s hardships I have learned that faith in God develops a personal love for Him which is reciprocated through his blessings to us in times of all who are meeting new or challenging times, I say: Do not fear the challenges of life, but approach them patiently, with faith in God. He will reward your faith with power not only to endure, but also to overcome hardships, disappointments, trials, and struggles of daily living." - R.D. Pinegar

My adorable nephew Everett was diagnosed with Autism recently.  My sister created a blog for him so she could record his journey and progress.. but also to connect with other mom's who have children with Autism.  I hope if you have experience with this, you can go over and say HI.  I think it can really help her to learn from your experience- I'm sure it will help everyone in the same situation.
Happy Sunday!

Wow, what a following. I checked your blog last night and you had so many comments. you posted after I checked your blog last night, and you already have four comments! But then your message today is so beautiful. Family is the only thing in this life I have that will go with me into the next life. I love the pinecones and the joy they brought the little guy.

Oklahoma City!! That's the mission my BEST FRIEND who baptized me is in!! You should try and see if he's an Elder serving in your area and make him dinner :) Elder Eric Anderson. He's the best.
