Brianna turned 7

Brianna turned 7 a few weeks ago and we had a fun day at home. This was a non-birthday party year so we went to Chuck-E-Cheese as a family and she was aloud to invite one friend. We had a great time!

Yes . . . this is how we do cake and ice cream . . . and it was even the birthday party ice cream sandwiches :)

She was SUPER excited to get an mp3 player

21st Ward Reunion

The ward that Jason grew up in had a 30 year reunion a couple weeks ago. We brought the whole family and it was so much fun for me to see Jason reuniting with everyone he grew up with. He was the one talking the whole time and I was on the sidelines . . . I thought it was great to see!! You could tell that Jason was VERY loved growing up - everyone adored him. Fun times!! :)

So weird that I never blogged about this, but a little over a month ago our ward was split and my YW's presidency was dissolved. I am no longer serving in Young Women's and I miss it a lot. It's interesting though because the Lord completely prepared me for this transition. I knew that I was going to be released and I felt comfort and peace. I have my Wednesday nights back with my family and I have a lot more time on my hands. Though I miss being with the girls and being with our awesome presidency, I am, surprisingly, okay - Wow!

I got put in nursery the first week after the split and though I felt a little disappointed that I didn't get to be in Relief Society for at least a couple weeks, I am happy to serve in Nursery. It's definitely a transition though . . . although, I am surrounded by small children every day, so it is not too different. I have enjoyed my first three weeks in nursery. My mind is consumed with how to make this nursery the best it can be. I want the sweet nursery kids to know how important it is to learn about the gospel and feel the spirit. I am with the younger kids and there is about 10-15 of them . . . it can get pretty crazy, but they are great! There are a couple of them that cry and cry because they want to go to their parents, but last week they both stayed the entire time and I was SO encouraged by that!!! I just love Heavenly Father's children and I am very grateful for this opportunity to serve them! So if you don't see me around anymore, come find me in the nursery and say Hi :)
