The Soul of a Remarkable Woman

I always love reading anything by President Uchtdorf and this is no exception. I have been reading this book and it is just so full of wonderful things and advice that I myself need to take more to heart. May you all have a wonderful week.

“What we love determines what we seek. What we seek determines what we think and do. What we think and do determines who we are — and who we will become.”

Highlight of my Week

So last week was just not my week. I was super busy and stressed out at work, I had a ton of things going on at home that I was falling behind on and then the uncaring dentist I saw said that I needed a root canal. :( I was sooo ready to put this week behind me when I found this sweet letter waiting for me in my mailbox from my niece Naomi. I am so touched by her thoughtfulness and the time and effort she put in to it. She did not know I was having a bad week but this just brought a smile to my face and tears to my eyes. I am the luckiest aunt in the world because I have the BEST nieces and nephews. I love them all so so very much!! The letter is a little hard to read but it says:

Dear Aunt Linbsay,
I hope that you come for Ellen's Baptism when she is 8.
My sweet letter from Naomi.

Things I have made

I would like to say I have been super productive these first few weeks of the new year but these are all products that I did last year. I started the blocks when Dixie was here last September and finally finished them up in early fall. I love the way they all turned out and that I have something cute to put out year round. It isn't a big surprise that the Autumn blocks are my favorite, it is also my favorite season. I made Joseph a new quilt for his birthday and love that I was able to find the fabric that I did. He has really been into Mustangs, Camaro's, etc these past few months and when I stumbled upon this fabric I was thrilled. The best part about his new blanket is that it is the perfect size for us to snuggle together. Yes every so often I can still get my little man to snuggle with me.

I just love the way these blocks turned out!!

Think warm thoughts.

I know it is super hard to see the S but I promise it is there.

Brr!! These fit in perfectly with the rest of my holiday decorations.

Joseph's new blanket. If you couldn't tell he loves car just like his daddy. :)

Ladybug Girl and the Bug squad

This month the kids read Ladybug Girl and the Bug squad. It is a cute little book about a group of boys and girl's who get together and use their super powers to go on adventures. The kids in Joseph's class all enjoyed it and had so much fun pretending to be superheroes. Once Joseph got home from book club he spent the rest of the day wearing his cape, he even went to bed with it on.

My Superhero!!!

Joseph explaining what his super power is. It is that he can sting people.

Everyone enjoying story time.
