Birthday #31

I ruined Michelle decorating my cubicle because I went to work early on Friday and she came in early to decorate, but I was already there =0) She decorated anyway and it was very nice! She also got me a beautiful Willow Tree Figure (If you don't already know, I collect Willow Tree). She's the angel of Spring.

I went to my car after work and Cassie had stopped by and put a cute little balloon in it! How fun!

My family spoiled me rotten! I got decorations, a cool card, cake, dinner at Texas Roadhouse (Thanks, Mom & Dad!), beautiful flowers, and Stephanie Meyer's book The Host.

I have wonderful friends and family! I had a great birthday! Thanks Guys!

Not old enough? Are you brave enough to tell her?

Sariah wants to be an UPWARD Cheerleader next year. She will be old enough, but not yet in school because she's a November birthday. The UPWARD league here has decided to follow the school cut-off for eligibility. Anyone brave enough to tell her she's not old enough? I'm not! Check out Sariah at half-time of Ammon's last game. This girl is determined and she's been practicing at home ALL season!

Can it really be over?

Well, we played our last basketball game of this season on Saturday, and I must say the boys played VERY well! They played a great team (You ROCK Mitch!) and I am so proud of the skills and understanding they gained this season! I had a blast and the boys all seemed to have fun too. Here are a few short videos of the last game!

Celestial Marriage

I've been thinking alot about Celestial Marriage the last few weeks and I think maybe it's something I was supposed to be thinking about since I have a YM/YW Combined Activity on Temple Marriage that I planned for March 11th and last Sunday I was asked to speak this Sunday on the topic guessed it! Celestial Marriage.....hmmmmm...Coincidence? I think not.

I am so grateful to have been worthy to be married in a Temple of the Lord and to be sealed to my husband, not just for this life but for all eternity, through the Sealing Power of the Priesthood. What a wonderful blessing! I now have the opportunity, should I and all the members of my family choose to live worthy to return to live with Heavenly Father again, to be with not only Jason but with Ammon and Sariah and any other children we might have along the way FOREVER!

What an awesome blessing and what a HUGE responsibility. The choices I make now will set a path for not only myself, but for my family. If I don't choose to live my life worthily I could ruin any opportunity for my family to be with me through eternity, and if I don't teach my children correct principles, I could be keeping them from living the life they need to live in order for all of us to be together. WOW!

Why is being sealed to my family so important to me? Because I love them and I want to be with them always! I want to live with them through eternity, I want to have my husband and children and grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and so forth, all together in the Celestial Kingdom! It's Heavenly Father's plan! How WONDERFUL!
