Blessings Fulfilled

A couple weeks ago, Zoe wanted to do a Fashion Show and try on lots of clothes and take pictures. She wanted me to be one of her models too. (if I get crazy enough, I'll post some of those pictures too) We had a lot of fun. I got out my wedding dress and Zoe and Kaia both tried it on and we took some pictures.... now, I don't know about you, but if you've ever seen your sweet little daughter wearing your wedding dress and dancing with your wonderful husband/her Daddy.... ok, it makes me get teary-eyed just thinking about it. Anyway, I just look at them and think how blessed we are. The choices Zeke and I have made to be married in the temple and to teach our children about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I love them so much and I want them to have eternal happiness. I am so thankful for the knowledge we have been given.

Well, it's been a week since my last post and my Dad is doing so much better. He was able to come home yesterday. There have been SO many people praying for him... Thank You! There is great power in prayer. My parents have been through a lot last week, but a good friend of mine, Peggy, said, "Well, did it bring you closer together as a family?" (yes, it did) "Then it was worth it." Wow, it's amazing to look back and see just how true that is. I love and appreciate my parents and family so much more.

And! on Friday, we paid Zeke's tuition for Fall Semester.... what an amazing summer this has been. All of the sacrifice and saving have been well worth it. He will start school on August 30th and will graduate in December!! This December...4 months away!
And just a side note -- we budgeted about $200 for Zeke's books and they ended up costing $70 - TOTAL. The blessings just keep coming and our home and hearts are overflowing. (the home, literally! I never thought we could squish 6 people in here, but we are so blessed!)


  1. The wonderful thing is that you see the blessings! I'm glad everything worked out so well. Thats awesome that his books didn't cost as much. What are your plans after he graduates? Are you staying in Logan?

  2. Lace,
    Those pictures were so cute. On Sunday Ashlyn came up and was wearing my prom dress and the next thing I know......here comes Josh in my prom dress!!!! We were all laughing SO hard! Good Times!

  3. Sandra, thanks for the comment, right now we're planning to stay in Logan.... not sure?

    Angee! I am laughing SO hard right now!!! Which dress was Josh wearing? the purple one? love it! we need some pictures :)

  4. Yes the purple one. He wouldn't let us take a picture. I wish he would have because it was so dang funny!

  5. I remember you in that dress from the night the GF Ward Young Women had a wedding dress fashion show! (seven years ago?) I think I might even have a picture somewhere....

    I'm so glad to hear that your dad is doing better. :)
