A great weekend (this is old, i found it in my drafts) oops forgot! Oct. 26

This weekend turned out so good. Our family came up this weekend for Xela's blessing. When Micah picked this weekend to do it, we didn't realize it was going to be the perfect weekend to have everyone come here. Almost everyone was able to come. We had Micah's parents, my parents (who stayed at my house) the Evan, Sara and Sobeida who stayed at Connor and Chelsea's house, who live not to far from us (Evan and Connor are Micah's brothers) then my brother Nick and his wife and kids stayed at my aunt and uncles house in bellevue. So we all got together on Saturday night for our Halloween Carnival and Trunk or Treat at the church. The kids got dressed up and there was good food and lots of candy of course. I dont have pictures because they were all taken on Micah's mom's camera. And then when that was over we all came back to my house and Micah ordered a pay per view fight, a gift for Evan's birthday.

Then Sunday morning came and it was pretty crazy, we actually got to church early which is just unheard of for just Micah and I with the girls to be there at 9 when church starts. And everyone else got there just in the nick of time. When it came time for Micah to give Xela her blessing he did such a wonderful job. Everything that he said was just beautiful we were all touched by his words and he couldn't even keep it together. The spirit was so strong at that moment. I'm so thankful for Micah that he is able to do that for our little girls. I'm grateful for all those who were able to come on Sunday, it meant a lot to Micah and I. And an extra treat for all that was there on Sunday, it happened to be the Primary Program. Karma did such a great job, I thought for sure that she wasn't going to was to go up there but she bravely went up and sang all the songs. When it came time for her age group to go up and recite the first article of faith she did great. They said it perfectly, "We believe in God the Eternal Father and in his son Jesus Christ and in the Holy Ghost." Her and another girl were right up on the microphone so it was hard to hear the others over them. Then they each had one line to say which we have been practicing for awhile and with out being scared or running off the stage she said it confidently, " I can show kindness to all of God's children." It was so cute and I was so proud to see her up there.

Then we all came back to my house when church was over and had lunch and hung out. Even micah aunt and uncle flew in from Utah to see how Micah's dad was doing.

2 Girls gone

My wonderful mom calls me up the other day and says "Tia, I have a favor to ask you." I'm thinking oh great what is it going to be, does she want me to go to my grandparents house for something, or does she want me to drive down to see her. No. "Okay what is it?" mom- "Can I have the girls this weekend and then I will bring them home on Tuesday?" Tia- (a VERY short pause) "YES of course you can!" Ahh instant relief and then my mind starts in on all the wonderful crafts I could do while they are gone. I have lots of project to so before the upcoming Holiday Bazzar in Elma. Well I didn't get as much done as I wanted because Xela was not cooperating of course. I sware they know when you want to get a bunch of stuff done, because as soon as you have time to do things they start acting up. I finish a couple thing for my mom, and thats about it. And the girls are coming home tonight, ohh well I am excited to see them. (these stars are much smaller and they were make to match another one I made for my mom its a large one like the star I made for myself.

Craft Club

My awsome friend Julie started a Craft Club!!! I was so excited for it to start. Our first project was this beautiful star. It was quite the project for our first club meeting but I love to craft so I was very exited to make one. I picked out the colors I wanted and then I had to choose pictures, which let me just say was not easy for two reasons. Reason 1- there are so many cute pictures of the girls it was had to choose. Reason 2- I wanted to have a few pictures of Micah and I together and also some with the girls. The problem is that ever since we had girl numero uno I dont get in the pictures for a reason, I just dont like the way I look, extra poundage and all I just dont like it. And needless to say Micah supported me by gaining a few pounds with me. We are not ginormous or anything but its just not the same be for the girls. We will get there.
Anyhoo so I did scrounge up a few pictures of us. So hear it is!

I am absolutely in love with it. I think it turned out great. It now is on our wall in the entryway. Thank you Julie for hosting such a great project, I'm excited for what more is to come.
