Well I never thought I would agree to getting a dog,but as some of you know (who have children) your love and desire for them to be happy is unconditional.
So after years of my kids begging for a dog,my 9 year old Noah writes James and I a 2 1/2 page letter of how much he wants a puppy and how he will take care of him all the time and love us Forever if we get him one. How could we resist? I did tell him since I am not a dog person ( I prefer my kitties.) I would be picking out the dog because it had to be the cutest dog ever since I know I would be doing the taking care of, even with the sincerity of Noah's promises.I think I did find the cutest dog ever.Luke is making me into more of a dog person.He is the sweetest,cutest,cuddliest doggie ever! But man will I be happy when he is potty-trained!Ughhhhh!!!!

Valentines Day

We had a wonderful Valentines day this year. I planned a Valentine themed dinner of heart-shaped meatloaf and pink parmesean mashed potatos and grapes for dinner. Then I prepared a Fhe lesson on "Love at Home".Teaching the kids about how important it is to be kind to each other and bringing the Spirit into our home so we can feel love and peace.We needed this lesson.It went well, I even gave all of us a challege this week to be kind to everyone no matter how they are being treated,so we can see if there is more love and peace in our home with our kids getting along more.Then for dessert we had chocolate dipped strawberries and carmel chocolate apples.We all enjoyed it.
