I am really sad to post this but I know that you guys will forgive us. We kind of skipped church on Sunday. I KNOW I KNOW............it is horrible. It had been a long weekend. Noah has had a bad couch for a couple days now and my left arm has been acting up and so I have been taking an anti-inflamitory and Chris had been at FTX all weekend and we were just so tired. I was up late Saturday night with my arm so I decided I would stay home with Noah and his nasty cough. I turned off my alarm at 7am and asked Chris "is your alarm set?" He said yes so I rolled over and went back to sleep. Noah comes in our room at 8:54am and asked if I would make him breakfast. I got up and looked at the clock and said "Chris are you going to church?" He relpies "YES". I said "well it's 8:54am" he rolls over says "crap nevermind". Then he went back to bed. Poor thing didn't get a lot of sleep and with preparing for finals he has been up really late at night studying and finishing up homework. He has had a heavy load this semester so I think missing church this one Sunday isn't too bad. We did make up for it by going to visit two Temples that afternoon. We decided to visit Jordan River Temple and the Oquirrh Mountain Temple. We started off at Jordan River which was closed so we couldn't walk the grounds but we did get to see it and it is beautiful. Then we headed over to the Oquirrh Mountain Temple, which is where my brother and Jadey will be sealed in a month. It was beautiful. It was such a nice day. It was pretty windy but sunny. We also drove around the neighborhood there called Daybreak. They have the nicest homes and the Temple is in their neighborhood. It has an awesome lake and so we got out and walked around and took tons of pictures and just enjoyed spending time together as a family. I am hoping to have some wedding pictures of my brother and Jadey at the lake. It would be an awesome spot for wedding pictures.

So it has been really nice here lately. I have been able to open my windows and air out the house, which I love. It has been in the mid to upper 50's all week. Then Thursday it started to snow at lunch time. It was so weird. I had my windows open in the morning and by lunch time I had to close them and put the heat back on. So today after I got Noah from school I took him snowboarding before he had to go to Scouts. We are having company for dinner so I have been cooking all day. It is going to be really yummy. Chris is almost done with this semester. I am so glad. He had a really big load this semester and has been studying a ton. I know that he will do well, but for anyone who knows Chris he is a worrier. I think that it will be good for him to have a small break before he starts his Spring/Summer classes. That's right now summer break for Chris. He is so dedicated. Noah is getting ready to start soccer this month and is really excited for that. He will be turning 9 in a few weeks. I can't believe that he is going to be 9 already. In 10 years he will be serving a mission. Boy does time fly by. I love that little guy so much.
