JJ is one of the most active kids I know. He’s always busy and hardly ever sits still – even when watching a movie or eating or anything else. Today, I walked into the living room and found him laying on the couch watching a movie. I thought for sure he must be getting sick or something and I sat down and finished the movie with him. As soon as the movie was over, he was back to his normal busy self and running around the house. I am grateful for the little moments when my boy will still snuggle with me – even if it is just for a little awhile.

So I went outside to discover a very long branch had fallen onto our lawn from the tree in our yard. It was pretty heavy too. Not sure what is happening to our tree – but we keep discovering small branches on our lawn – now, I am a little scared to just let the kids go play outside by themselves!

Joey bought me an iPhone!!! It was a very nice surprise – and he got a great deal on it too. I never expected to get one and never really thought I would even want one. I had my iPod Touch and I loved it – but I didn’t really think I needed a fancy phone – but when it arrived today and I started playing with it – I fell in love with it. I spent the whole day goofing around on it – it is definitely addicting! Thank you honey!

The kids got out their big coloring books today. It was fun to see how much they enjoyed coloring and they got along so well today!

My family arrived in town today. We had dinner and played at our house tonight. Both my sisters weren’t able to come, but all 4 of my brothers made it and it’s not often that all 4 of them are together – so of course we had to get a picture. I only regret not getting a picture of me with my brothers – I really should have done that – but of course – being the photographer, I didn’t even think of it until later. It was really fun to have us all together and my kids enjoyed playing with their little cousin that they never get to see!

So it was a long but very fulfilling day today. We got up early and went to the Oquirrh Mountain Temple Open House as a family and it was very beautiful. I love that I have been able to take my kids to 2 temples in the last few months. We then headed over to Hogle Zoo for awhile and then we headed back to Orem for some shopping and then a BBQ at my house for dinner. It is SO FUN to have my family here.

My family headed home today and I’ll miss them. One of the things that I enjoyed this week was trying my hand at a new skill – bread making! I love bread, especially rolls and I finally gave baking them a try and I think they turned out amazingly well. I made them 3 times this week and it was good to be able to share them with my family. Yea!
