A weekend with Grandma xoxo
Friday afternoon we went up to salt lake because my mom is in town and is staying at her mom's house. I made Bella a new tutu and she packed it up in her lunch box because she really wanted to dance for her grandma. Grandma played a tune on the piano, Bella said she couldn't dance without music. Jarom helped a little, or more so just needed some attention too. And at some points Oey and Bella's Great Nana busted out some great moves. I had a great seat.

Mom and I at Conference this morning! We had the most wonderful time running in the rain and busting through crowds of people just feeling so lucky we had tickets. I loved every moment of it. Things I learned that made my world go round: New temple for Rome, Italy, Laugh more and just about everything and anything, To live a more pure and simple life, Besides being a Mother, Wife, daughter or friend is to be a missionary, To never let HOPE die - it is the beam of sunlight in our lives, The sweet voices of the children's choir, Being with my mom, Bells don't ring and the birds don't sing-"Come what may and love it"- Wirthlin's mother's motto, To have more compassion for others, DO your best and the Lord will do the rest, To believe in Angels, To listen to the Prophet, To want to create Zion- one heart, one mind!, To be a giver, Families are Forever, To say more meaningful prayers, To always see and be mindful of all my many blessings, To love and to serve everyone. The list could go on and on. Conference is for everyone. SO uplifting and fills our souls. And I really enjoyed the group who tried to ruin it, they just made it all that much more fun.
This sad picture does not do the temple justice, it's just the one I took from inside the conference building. It was a rainy, cozy, wet full of love day.
A video of my little Bell. Don't worry about the dead woman in the corner. She is my mom's friend, the whole reason my mom even got to come out. And I used her tickets to get into conference, lucky me. I got to go to the morning and afternoon session. But anyways, the dead woman is actually quite amazing and has been very busy going to and fro telling her story about being in a concentration camp. She has the tattoo and everything.
