King Arthur's Birthday!

So, my lovely sister Julie posted this wonderful memory on her blog yesterday.

"I can't forget to wish you a Happy King Arthur's Birthday today before it's over!

(Okay, I know there's no King Arthur's Birthday...but we "celebrate" it in our family! Here's the deal...my sister Becky had a little planner book when she was about 8 years old. She left it open on her bed, and like a nosy, much-older sister would do, I looked at what she had written there...important things needing to be accomplished by an 8-year old...and there I gleefully discovered "King Arthur's Birthday--no school!"

Of course, she had mistaken Martin Luther King Day for King Arthur...get it?!) Our "celebration" of the day usually entails calling or emailing my sister and never letting her forget it!"

I guess through the years I have given my family more than a few times to giggle at my expense. Julie always told me that when I get married my wedding gift will be a book of "Beckyism's" to give to my Husband. Although she didn't give Robert a book she sure told him all my stories! Thanks Jewels for Never letting me forget those fabulous memories and for passing them down the line to share with my children and nieces and nephew's! I sure appreciate you:) !!! Really I do though!

I'm pathetic

Ok, I totally have to admit that I am going to a book group tonight and I never even read the book! I'm seriously going to just hang with the girlies and Eat yummy food! Ok now I'm a big enough girl to admit that's pretty pathetic!
All my friends have on their blog a "Book List" of their favorite Reads and their Most recent Reads. I just have lists of my favorite foods and the most recent foods I have enjoyed! Again...pretty Pathetic. So this year as it is one of my New Year's resolution's I want to start reading Books! I think the only Claim to Fame I have is "the Work And The GLory" Series, And I think My friends are all sick of me saying I read those Books! I loved them though, I just haven't gotten back to reading anything since then. The only thing Other than Church Stuff I read are...Can you Guess?.....Cook Books! PATHETIC!!!
So I'm asking all of you out there to help me out and give me some Book ideas that will Capture My attention from the very beginning. And then maybe I can put a "Book List" on my Blog! I would be so proud of myself.

bring it on indeed!

Well, I am now the new primary president for our ward! Shocker...I know! But, truly I am so excited for this new challenge. I was reading some things and I came across this fabulous quote that I just had to share...
“All we ask of you is that in the hearts of these children who come under your watch, care and direction, you will so inspire them that nothing in this world will be dearer to them than the Gospel.” - President Ezra Taft Benson
That is alot of responsability put onto our shoulders isn't it? But I am grateful for the oppurtunity and trust My Heavenly Father has given me to teach his children.
And Boy do I have an awesome bunch of ladies that I get to work with.I don't know how I can fail in this calling with them by my side.
Christopher is in Nursery now, Spencer is in CTR 5 and James is now the Big man on Campus, so I am happy that i Can be in there with them every week. Also I think that whenever you are in a calling you can add your own special touch to things and I think I will be able to help teach these kids to have compassion for others with special needs. There aren't many kids in our ward with Special needs, but the ones that do have such a beautiful Spirit about them it's amazing. And I hope that all these kids will be able to see that in them (And really...they already are so good with them, it's neat to watch).
The one song that I have always loved Long before Christopher was born is "I'll walk with you". Here are the lyrics to the song, makes me cry every time i hear them

"If you don’t walk as most people do,
Some people walk away from you,
But I won’t! I won’t!
If you don’t talk as most people do,
Some people talk and laugh at you,
But I won’t! I won’t!
I’ll walk with you.
I’ll talk with you.
That’s how I’ll show my love for you.
Jesus walked away from none.
He gave his love to ev’ryone.
So I will! I will!
Jesus blessed all he could see,
Then turned and said,
“Come, follow me.”
And I will! I will!
I will! I will!
I’ll walk with you.
I’ll talk with you.
That’s how I’ll show my love for you".
Words: Carol Lynn Pearson

This song means alot more to me now with Christopher! I love it!!!
So here we go...on with new and exciting challenges. I am crazily really looking forward to them. And by the way any of you former Primary Presidents, If you have any advice I would love it!
