December 16th - Sweet Sabbath Day!

This has been another great Sabbath.  I spent the morning reviewing the RS lesson that I had to teach and getting things ready for dinner.  We had a crockpot chicken with potatoes, onions, and carrots.

Services were all good today - good talks in Sacrament meeting, lesson about the final judgment in Gospel Principles.  Of course, I had to teach to RS, so I am not sure I can safely say it was a "great lesson," but I felt good about it.  It was about finding peace and happiness in a world where so many terrible things are happening. 

When I got home, the kids were all here and we pulled dinner together and then had a great late afternoon and evening.  Lisa and Ashby had gone to see the Nutcracker last night, so Ashby was still totally absorbed by that and spent most of her time dancing.  She has also been watching it on UTube, so has become quite knowledgeable about how to do a lot of the leaps, spins, and toe moves.  Very cute!

Brooks was climbing on the couch cushions and took a fall and gave himself a huge goose egg on his forehead.  He cried for a bit - which means it really did hurt, since he doesn't cry much when he takes falls.  He will have a magnificent bruise on his forehead, but he seems to have recovered.

Bill didn't get home until really late - tithing settlement is making it late to complete the bank deposit.  But he still had enough time to play with the children for a while.  They love it when Grandpa comes home! 

So, it was a wonderful Sunday.  I am very much looking forward to our moving to the 9:00 schedule in January.  It will make it so much nicer to have the afternoon with the kids.
