|We got ice cream after the Women's Conference.|

I took my cute girls to the women's conference last night. I love that they changed the age of attendance from twelve to eight. It was so good!! The spirit was very strong. Most of the talks were about preparing for the temple, and the blessings of the temple. I hope my sweet little women were able to feel the spirit even in a small measure. I know it was hard for them to sit still and listen, but I really hope they were able to take something away from it. I hope it at least planted a seed in their hearts. The temple has been such a huge blessing in my life, and my families as well. I have felt the protection, direction, and peace while being in the temple. I have been able to receive answers to my prayers, and direction by visitings the Lords house. I know the best time for my girls to start to prepare to go to the temple is now. I am very thankful to know that if I continue to hold fast to my covenants I have made to my husband, and my Father in Heaven, that I can have my family for not just time, but all eternity. No one can take that away from me. It's in my hands each day with the decisions I make - and like wise in each of my family members hands as well. There are a lot of things I can work on, and teach my children too. I'm very thankful for this time of year and the blessing of being able to listen and learn from General Conference.

|Birthday breakfast; German pancakes, with strawberries, and whip cream.|
Keira turned 10 on Friday! She is growing into a little woman! The past few years she has changed so much. It's weird having a child who really thinks for themselves, and is starting to have an attitude (Which I'm not a huge fan of haha) but I love seeing her change and develop.
|DJ, got Keira Nurf Guns!|
|My mom, sister, and I singing together while Ness plays the guitar. Like the good old day.|
Happy birthday to this sweet little girl, Keira! I cannot wrap my head around how ten years went by so fast! It really feels like yesterday that I held you in my arms for the first time! We love you so much and hope you have a wonderful birthday!! You are such a wonderful, smart, funny, kind, loving, and talented little girl. Happy birthday, Keira!!!

We took a drive up the Alpine Loop and went to Cascade springs with my sister and her husband on Labor Day. It was super busy. Cascade Springs was one of my favorite places to go as a kid. It had been twelve years since I had been back....funny enough it was the place where I was proposed to by my ex-husband. So, it was a little weird to go back there, but nice to replace those old memories with new ones. It was of course, absolutely breathtaking! The trees are changing color. Autumn is my absolute favorite time of year! I was so surprised by all the rich colors on the mountains. The pictures don't do it justice. The girls were with their dad for the weekend. We missed them. We plan on taking them soon.

|My adorable little sister brought lavender and jasmine tea and my mom's old antique tea cups! She is the cutest person ever! I love her attention to detail in everything she does and makes everything special and memorable.|
|I love these two so much! Vanessa and Caden. Caden looks like Jesus with his lovely locks and beard. It's pretty awesome... although Roman wouldn't agree lol he's not a fan of the beard haha!|
|Roman smelling a flower. That face!!!!|
