Homecoming

It was like Christmas at our house this weekend!  We couldn’t have been more thrilled or more enamored with this little girl.  On Sunday the Phoenix temple was dedicated and we rededicated our home which was lovely.  We also had a long family council where we talked about doing less so we could enjoy Lily more.  Taylor was born on a Saturday and I was back to class the next week despite hemorrhaging after he was born.  My H and H was so low that I could barely take a shower without needing to lay down and rest.  Jake was born the night before Thanksgiving and the next week I was conducting and putting on New Beginnings at mutual.  Before I was even discharged from the hospital after having Drew, Mike and the older boys were on a family trip in Florida.  We took one week old Daisie to California for Mike’s brother’s wedding and we took two week old Luke to Hawaii for a work trip.  This time we were going to do things differently.  Instead of going we were going to stop.  Instead of seeing how much we could do we were going to see how little we could do.  If we miss a golf tournament or a baseball practice or a piano lesson it will be ok in the end, but if we miss this short window of time where the windows of heaven are open to our family the opportunity will not present itself again.  Everyone agreed to step up and help.  We hope to take full advantage of this precious little spirit straight from heaven to our family.IMG_4568
