So Barack did apparently Rock the Vote. Congrats... should we be afraid?? He wasn't my first choice, by any means, but we'll make it work, I hope! I'm not going to lie, I was a little discouraged... but I feel really awesome this morning after checking out the results of the election and finding out that ...
Proposition 102 PASSED in Arizona
Proposition 2 PASSED in Florida
and perhaps the biggest surprise and the biggest victory is that Propositon 8 PASSED in California.
Boyd K. Packer said on Sunday in our Stake conference that was broadcast around all of Arizona (in regards to prop 102)It is NOT a Political cause, it is a MORAL cause. I thought it was an awesome explination of why the church was so involved. They usually don't get into anything political and tell you how or what to vote. I was impressed and I do feel it is a great win that marriage is that much more protected in these 3 states.
So surprise surprise... I've got another little bun cookin in my oven. 3rd times a charm, right? I'm 10 1/2 weeks along. Due June 2nd. I am sick just like I was with my other ones but I've got some good meds and a great doctor so I'm not worried. Just wish us luck, we'll need it :) our little gummy bear
Lacy's preschool class had an adorable little Halloween party the day before Halloween. They let all the parents come the last 30 min and watch them sing songs, recite their poems and even break open a pinata. They seperated the boys from the girls for the pinata. I figured it was because all the boys were a little bit more rough then the girls. Well Lacy was the 8th or 9th girl to go and after each girl gave their 3 sweet delicate girly swings to the witch's head Lacy comes up and swings her first swing with all her might and knocks the head right off the witch and sends it flying!!! The girls' pinata was bust open long before the boys. She's definitely her daddy's little girl. I wouldnt expect anything else with Lacy. She had to tell EVERY adult there that she "bammed the head off the witch" She was so proud.
Here are some friends from the ward that are in her class. She LOVES preschool and begs to go every day. I never thought I'd say this, but I can't wait until Kindergarden. So instead of breaking her heart and saying she cant go to school for 5 more days (on the weekends) I can say only 2 more days. She really is heartbroken when she has to wait so many days to go back to school. For Halloween Night we went to our wards Trunk or Treat. Lacy told us that we were not allowed to go with her unless we all had our "costuNes" on. What a sassy little girl. We all threw something together and headed out. I'm usually pretty cordinated... not this year!
Lacy graduated from her Tot Tumbling class. They had a preformace the last day and Lacy was definitely the shining student. She was the least shy and gave everyone a good laugh with her dancing skills. If I can get the video to work I'll post it later. If not, you will have to take my word for it, because she was adorable!
Ok I have been such a blog slacker lately, I've got a lot of catching up to do!!
First off we went to Flagstaff early October during fall break with our besties Mark and Caroline. We had so much fun!! It was freezing cold, super windy and both my boys were sick, but we made due and had fun just relaxing. We went on a picnic, little hike, made some crafts, watched some movies, and even went to Prescott on the way home and spent a lovely day with Ryan and Krista at the boys soccer games.. and had a babysitter and an awesome date night. It was a much needed, super fun weekend. Thanks Mark and Caroline for being such good friends and inviting us to go! We love you!
Caroline came up with these cute crafts that the kids LOVED. They made nature bracelets from duct tape and things they found around the cabin. Leaves, flowers, sticks, etc. Then they made rock necklaces and also did some fun things with popsicle sticks.
