I met, for the first time, my niece Rebekah last weekend. She is so beautiful. I just couldn't put her down. Rebekah is the happiest baby I have ever met. She smiled the whole weekend. I miss her already and can't wait to see her again.
Draper Utah Temple Open House
Saturday March 8, 2009
Our family took a trip to Salt Lake this weekend so that we could attend the Draper Temple open house. As we walked through we were able to teach Jayce and Alek and show them the beauty of temples.
We had the priveledge to attend the open house with our boys, my mom and dad, Marissa, Jordan, Braden, and baby Rebekah. As we walked through we could feel the spirit as it testified to all of us that the temple is a House of God. We were able to bare testimony to our children about the importance of temple's and how our family can be together forever because of the promises Grant and I made in the temple.
I am so thankful that I had this opportunity to teach my children and show them the importance of temples. I am thankful for temples and the opportunity to go inside.
When I was a child I had the opportunity to go through the Jordan River Temple before it was dedicated. I remember the feelings I had, and hope that my boys will always remember the spirit they felt.

Kids proof green beans!

I know, it's strange to blog about green beans. But I have been trying for years to find a way to make my kids eat green beans! Last night it occured to me that kids eat anything that is masked in cheese. So I got thinking. This is what I came up with.

1 bag frozen green beans (any style)
4 oz velveeta cheese, cut into cubes
1 small can evaporated milk
add it all together in a pan. Stir until cheese is completely melted on low heat and then take it off the burner. Let it sit for a minute to let it thicken a bit, and serve. Don't forget to stir constantly.

You can sprinkle bacon bits on top too if your kids like them.

My kids ate all their beans and then some. It was the first time they have EVER eaten all their beans and then gone back for more.
