L is for...

Game time!!!! I thought that this might be fun to play. All you have to do is make a list of ten of your favorite things. But there is a little catch. Everything on the list has to start with a specific letter of the Alphabet. That letter is randomly assigned by the blogger who you are playing with!
I was assigned the letter L by Rachel Ann!
Here goes...

L is for...

Loving Husband- enough said.
Lemon Bars- best way to pay your friend for moving your fridge. ( and tasty too!)
LDS Church- not sure where I would be without it-p.s. eternal families are AWESOME!
L Street- where my cute little home is.
Licorice- Any kind-as long as it is soft. Yum.
Lasagna- Yum.
Laughter- I LOVE to laugh, loud and long and clear...
LaLaLaLa- I love music-it is my life.
Lions- They are brave and furry.
Locks- They keep us safe.

There we go. If you want to play, let me know!

Christmas is...

Maybe Christmas," he thought, "doesn't come from a store. Maybe Christmas... perhaps... means a little bit more." (the Grinch)

We had so much fun building gingerbread houses with our favorite people (uh, Nathan and Jessica..) this last week. It really helped to get me back in the Christmas spirit. I have been kind of out of it this year with all the stress and unpleasantness of it. This year, we won't be doing a whole lot for Christmas, but like the Grinch said-Christmas doesn't come from a store. I have been humbled this year into remembering that Christmas is about the birth of our Savior. In this day and age, it is so easy to forget about Him and all that He did for us. I know that I need to take the time to remember that every day. It might make life a touch more pleasant. So, thanks for the gingerbread you two. And thanks for bringing your cute baby. It made my day! (of course.) On a lighter note, Tim and I are going to my mom and dad's in TWO DAYS! I love it! I am so excited to see my parents and my cat! And everything else! So, Merry Christmas to all-and to all, uh, other stuff too.

I'm a WRECK...(literally)

Okay-so for those of you that don't know yet-I mangled my malibu. (that was good alliteration, right?) Yes, it was my fault. No, I didn't get a ticket. No, no one was injured. It is on days like yesterday that I am reminded that I have a purpose on this earth and Someone upstairs was looking out for little Katie Jennings. The accident could have been so much worse had things been a fraction of an inch off. I am so thankful for the protection that my Heavenly Father offers me and the daily reminders that I have something important to do here. I am also thankful for an amazing husband who didn't even get mad at me for crunching our car. He has been so kind and supportive. He amazes me daily. So, don't worry- I'm fine. Malibu Barbie is a touch mangled, but she will be fine too!
