I've listened to Elder Eyring's conference talk entitled "O Remember, Remember" several times since last October. The following statement has really impressed me: "I was supposed to record for my children to read, someday in the future, how I had seen the hand of God blessing our family". I've been meaning to add at the end of each blog how I had seen the hand of God blessing our family or HIHSTHoGBoF (I've decided this acronym is too long and will use ORR for "O Remember, Remember", instead).

I want to post a few pictures from yesterday and say that I see that God has guided us to move closer to family for a wise purpose. My mom came to pick us up yesterday morning to go with her, Jay and Grace to the Adams County Fair. Turns out the fair wasn't quite open but we still got to see chickens, turkeys, and rabbits.
Kaia thought this rabbit looked like a dog. I don't think the 4-H girl standing nearby liked her comment much.
This young lady had a beauty queen sash on that read "Colorado Rabbit Queen" or something like that. I don't know how you become a Rabbit Queen, but I'm sure Sierra and Kaia want to be join that royal train.
After the fair we went to the mall. While my mom shopped the kids and I enjoyed the giant sandbox. Adam was only a few minutes away so he dropped in and joined us for lunch.
There are endless blessings of living closer to family. Not only days like these that we get to spend time with one another, but opportunities to serve and to cherish. The other day I needed to deposit the earnest money check with the title company at a moments notice and Gram let me leave the three kids with her. Right now Kaia is next door learning how to carefully water Gram's beautiful flowers while I bathe the kids and clean up the breakfast mess. I am so grateful that the Lord has guided us to this home and that we have such a loving, generous family.
