Life goes on!

So...it's been a while! Life has continued to move on whether I like it or not. Sometimes I wish there was a pause button to be able to just savor certain moments for as long as I choose. Oh well! We had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. We had my sister and her family come and hang out with us for a while and then mom and Mike. We did a fun little Turkey Trot Thanksgiving morning with the Hoopes' and then dinner at Aunt Julie's house. It was a blast! We even had a fun little HSM party one day with Kris and her kids and it was one of the funnest things ever! James is still coaching basketball and that take a LOT of his time right now. Nothing like getting paid for 25 hours a week when your working more than 40! Oh well...life goes on. We are scheduled to have an ultrasound on the 21st of this month and can't wait. I'm hoping that no one will dissappointed if it's not the sex we all want...including myself. I just want my little Abraham...I've had enough of the girls for the moment! Two in a row is enough for my sanity!!!!! Don't get me wrong...LOVE my girls....just can't handle anymore drama queens for the time being! HAHAHA!!!!! Can't wait for Christmas to come and have tons of fun! I always love Christmas time and all the things we get to do! I hope everyone is having a great holiday season! It's always busy, busy, busy, but I hope we can all remember the things that are truly important this time of year! I know I tend to forget but I am so grateful for my Saviours birth and that he could be such an example to us all. I am grateful for His atoning sacrifice so that we can return and live with Him again. I know I complain and stress over all the things I think are "wrong" or "hard" in my life but I am grateful for my Heavenly Father who helps me to see just how wonderful my life really is! AND IT TRULY IS!!!!! I have 5 of the most amazing kids in the world and a husband who always works so hard and is a good example to me and the kids. I have so much to be thankful for!

I love your post. It is so true. I complain about things but I have it so easy compared to most.

We had so much fun at your house. The dance party was the best! I can't wait to see you in January or March, depending.

You are an amazing Mom and wife too! I LOVE having boys, ok, maybe I'm a little biased... I sometimes wish I had a girl-Then I see some of my nieces how moody they are and I'm reminded how grateful I am to have all boys... ;-)

Do you need a crib? I'm planning on buying a twin bed for our baby in the next 6mo sometime. Let me know. Thanks for being such a good friend/sister!

A pause button would really be nice! James must get paid good for his coaching cause when you add all the hours Jon puts in when he coaches he gets paid like 10 cents an hour! :0) Isn't it awesome having the gospel in our lives! How else is it possible to find peace when life is anything but that! Your awesome!
