Brittny - 30 December 2009

Oops! Sorry, I thought I'd posted this a couple weeks ago. Here it is now :)

Low: Sam is teething, poor kid :(

Highs: Today was my niece's wedding and it was awesome to get to be a part of it. She did an awesome job of keeping everything focused on the spiritual aspect of the day rather than all the frills. We started the day by all participating in an endowment session. Eric and I have had a difficult time going to the temple lately because Sam is going through separation anxiety, so we were worried that he was going to make it so we couldn't go. But when we got to his cousin's house to drop him off he just hopped down and went straight to his cousin. Apparently he was good for her the whole time! The Lord really does bless you when you are serving Him!

It was really neat to get to do an endowment session as a family. It was really cool to look around the room and realize that all of the siblings in Eric's family could be in the temple. Not all of them were able to be there right then, but all 9 siblings had received their endowment, married in the temple and was living worthy to be in that sacred place. That was such a neat feeling to be surrounded by faithful people as part of my family. I can't wait for the day when we can have that experience with our family, although obviously we have to wait until Kyle's old enough to receive those blessings. It was pretty cool.

Then we got to go straight from the endowment session to the sealing. It was awesome to see how the ordinances all flowed together. You know that they all build on one another but it's different when you can actually see it right next to each other. I really want to go to the temple sometime and start with doing baptisms and go all the way through to doing sealings. Obviously it would be a long day but I think it would be so cool to see the whole progression in one experience.

All Pooped Out (TItle courtesy of Taylor)

High: Getting a clean bill of health today
Low: The preparation for a colonoscopy...i will spare you the details but let's just say that I took 20 days worth of laxatives in 12 hours.
High: I lost 5 pounds in about 3 hours
Low: Leaving Cody and Kyle to entertain themselves while I was at the procedure. I entered the house to find 4 teenage snipers in my hallway with nerf guns aimed at me. The first words I heard were "hey guys hold your fire while my mom comes in." Needless to say they all quietly played while I recovered....OH YEAH RIGHT.

Late Entry

High: Having everyone home for Thanksgiving. I had such a good time. It is a mother's first wish and joy; to have all her family together. And we had no contentions - that was a true joy. Thank you for that gift. I can't express how much I enjoyed being with everyone.
Low: You had to go home. The boys are begging to go to Utah for Christmas because they can't stand to be here alone. Most people think that five people in a household is a housefull we find it to be empty without you all around. Having said that though we are grateful that you are off doing great things in your life.
I love you all.

A Better Workweek

Low: Still no news on the China opportunity
