Pictures cannot even come close to telling the story of our life.  I am so grateful for the joy that has been in my life because of the wonderful man I am married to.  Elliott is an amazing husband and father.  He has enriched my life, and the life of our children, with his patience, gentleness, talents, and love. Through the challenges of our life he has been a steady anchor. I am so grateful to know that through the covenants we have made in the temple, we are married and sealed together not just until death, but through eternity.

Love you, babe.

Ward Christmas Party

Meeting with Santa at our ward Christmas party this evening.

 Andrew: asked for a Red Rider carbon action 200 shot range rifle with a compass 
and a stock and that thing which tells time.   
(I hope you have seen A Christmas Story...  
otherwise you will have no idea what he is asking for!)

 Ethan: asked for a bow and arrow, money, and an iPod touch 
(interestingly, those are also the only things he put on his list for us.)

 Emma: asked for a bow and arrow

 Sophie: asked for a My Little Pony set

Henry:  Probably asked for a Thomas the Tank Engine, 
but he seems to be pondering something here that has Santa a little surprised.
