Team Jacob

Are we really that obsessed with Edward or Jacob, or is it just a secret ploy to have a much needed girls night out? For me it is the latter, and I had a blast hanging out with my fun neighbors, although I still vote to not sit next to Daniella at the next one. :) She is an Edward fan. Or maybe it was just the leopard print pants that were making me dizzy. I'm joking, I love Daniella! What a fun night! We need to rent a bus next time so we can all drive together!

Both Ryllie and Maddux entered the Reflections contest at school this year. Ryllie took a beautiful picture that earned her a ribbon, and Maddux composed a piano song that earned her a trophy and an advancement to the State Reflections. I am so proud of both my daughters for going the extra mile and participating in the Reflections program. Way to go!

Ryllie's baptism

I know Ryllie will remember this special day forever. Ryllie was baptized on Halloween along with her friend Hailey C. We had some family there which made the day even more special. The baptism was wonderful and Ryllie said that she felt like Heavenly Father and Jesus were standing right next to her. The next day she bore her testimony for the first time, and I was overcome with emotion. I have always known that Ryllie would have a tremendous influence for good, and that she is a wonderful daughter, but when she stood to share her testimony, I was so incredibly proud and felt so blessed to have her as my sweet daughter. Ryllie, I love you, and I want you to know how much I love the gospel and how much I love our Savior, Jesus Christ. I hope you will always remember the way you felt at your baptism, and I hope you will always seek the guidance of the Holy Ghost. Love, mom
