The Rockette's

We went out on a triple date with Z & J, my parents, and us.  We went out to dinner and then to see the Rockette's!  I have been wanting to see this for as long as I can remember.  Not in NYC but close second.  The show was AMAZING!  Here are a few pictures:

Serving the kiddos! How come the kids always get to eat first and they don't even help with the cooking??

The girl's table.

The program.

Great dance but T stole the show!

This must be the closing song.

I know I'm way behind on my blog and we are now in the new year but I have to go in order or I go crazy.  We had a fun Thanksgiving at our house with the M's, my parents and L & E.  I'm so thankful for my family and the blessing of living close to them.

Then on Black Friday Z and I went shopping for lots and lots of bargains.  We kind of left late and we thought we would be out of luck but we still found pretty much everything we were looking for!  We love this tradition.  But we are exhausted that afternoon!

General Conference Tid Bits

October 2-3, 2010

“Spiritually Fed” is what General Conference is all about.  I wrote down my favorite ideas but I forgot I hadn't posted them yet.  So here they are.  It's better now anyways cause its a good reminder of the important things that I learned.

We are individually loved of God.

The world will teach our children if we don’t.

When teaching gospel principles it doesn’t matter how much experience teaching we have. What matters is our attitude to teaching and that we feel his Spirit!

The Spirit is not taught but caught!

Principles of good teaching:
1. Immerse yourself in the scriptures (personal scripture study).
2. Apply in your life the things that you learn.
3. Seek Heaven’s help (pray for those we teach, pray for inspiration).
4. Exercise agency and act on promptings received. Act right then!

SLOW DOWN! Do those things that matter most!

The most important relationships we need to work on are:
1. God: Learn of Him, need time alone with him through prayer and scripture study.
2. Family: Dinner, FHE, love is spelled “T I M E”
3. Fellow men: One person at a time, spend time listening
4. Ourselves: don’t criticize, we are God’s creation.

Make our homes holy places. Block out those things that remove the Spirit.

The road of discipleship is not for the spiritually faint!

We become what we want to become by acting in the ways that help us become.

Be grateful for trials that increase our faith.

We are in the middle of an important election. The Lord is voting for me, and Lucifer is voting against me, but it is my vote that counts!!

There are no perfect parents only perfect principles to follow.

Lucifer knows our weaknesses and faults and will try to tempt us in these areas.

Show increase in kindness.
