Weekend Wrap-up!

The whole reason I started this blog years ago was to document my cute kids and all the things that go on with our family. Today I wanted to return to that a little bit :) I love sharing family home evening ideas, crafts I attempt, and ways I am trying to get healthier. I ALSO love remembering the sweet times our family has together. That was what this blog was created for, so here goes! :)

Last night was the General Relief Society Broadcast. It was amazing. President Uchtdorf said SO many things I needed to hear. The thing that stuck out to me most was his message to be happy in our lives NOW. He spoke of how many of us are constantly waiting for things to happen in our life so we can be happy, and meanwhile we are missing small, precious moments that can bring so much joy. As I was looking at ALL these pictures, I thought about the small moments this weekend that brought ME much joy. Our life is not perfect, my children are not perfect....and I am not even close :) But, there is still so much joy to be found, if I can remember to look for it

Yesterday both of the girls had soccer games. Kendall is a hoot on the soccer field. Her little team is full of friends from her preschool class, and once you actually get her on the field (it takes a LOT of coaxing) she has fun.



Skylar's game was after and it was her best game yet!! She completely owned the goal...didn't let ONE get past her! I was really proud of her...she gets VERY tired but she didn't give up and ran the whole time she was out on the field.




Inbetween the girls games we had an hour break and the girls LOVED the swings. I love how carefree and joyful they are.



After the soccer games I talked Paul into taking the kids to Thanksgiving Point to go to the Harvest Festival (he wanted to be responsible and do yard work...I won :)



They had so many fun things to do: free crafts for the kids, bands playing, .50 ice cream cones, face-painting, and a giant pumpkin contest.










I have definitely passed on the Chamberlain family love of ice cream to my children. Seriously...the size of our ice cream scoops are legendary :)




I had to post this picture just to prove that we DO take Avrie out of her carseat occasionally. Extremely good babies result in extremely FEW pictures :)





My kids love having their faces painted. I think we gave the artists some beautiful canvases :)






Hope you are all having a fantastic weekend as well! I'm excited to be posting a fun family home evening idea, lots of fun farm activities for the kids, and whatever else I throw together this week :)

Beautifully written! I think that is such a great reminder for all of us. I didn't get a chance to hear the conference live, but I can't wait to watch it on my DVR. Thanks for letting me know how great it was!

And by the way, you have such a gorgeous family!
