Follow the Prophet

I was really sad to hear this week that President Hinckley had died. I got the news just as I was putting Mckenna to bed. I told her that the prophet had died and she almost started crying. She said "but he's really happy now mom because he's with Jesus now. " I guess she is actually listening during out little family home evenings. Today she was looking through The Friend and she saw a little picture of President Hinckley and she said, "oh mom, look he's all better now!" I had to explain everything all over again. Then she started pointing to every picture in the magazine and asked me each time if this was the new prophet.

When we were looking at The Friend today, Mckenna saw a drawing of Goliath. She said, "he's a mean man, mom." I told her that he was. She said, "well, he needs a mommy."

Family Stuff

While we were in Utah we did a lot of fun stuff. We went to the Kangroo Zoo and the Dinosaur Museum at Thanksgiving Point. The girls really loved seeing all the stuff there. We have been before but they were a lot younger and didn't understand the whole thing. Mckenna was able to do all the activities and was begging to go again when we got done. I wish they had something like that here in AZ close to us. We also had some family pictures taken which are probably long over due. I am really happy with how they turned out.

I am sitting here wondering if I should try and play catch up on what has happened the last three or four weeks. I will give a little run down. We had a wonderful Christmas. The girls absolutely loved their presents, but then again they would have probably loved just the boxes they came in. It was so fun this year to see Mckenna react to everything, and Kayla was really getting into it too. Just after Christmas we went up to Utah to see the fam and to see my little sis Emily home from her mission. She was such a returned missionary, but so cute! It was so fun to see my fam and Jase's family too. I was sick for a lot of the time and when we got back I came down with the flu. Now that I'm back on my feet I am feelin' really guilty about my blog. I will continue to update things as I have time. I 'm playing catch up with everything right now from being sick so we will get there eventually. For now this is it, but more to come soon!
