"You will have significant experiences. I hope that you will write them down and keep record of them, that you will read them from time to time and refresh your memory of those meaningful and significant things. Some may be funny. Some may be significant only to you. Some of them may be sacred and quietly beautiful. Some may build one upon another until they represent a lifetime of special experiences." — Gordon B. Hinckley

~Family Party~

What a great day!!
I love our little intimate family parties for the girls birthdays. I love having their friends around to help celebrate their day, but there is something special about just having the family there. I love the look on her face with each gift. I really love how excited she was when she opened her own set of scriptures and the new bag to put them in along with her baptism book!! She couldn't wait to get a pen and start writing all about herself inside.
What a wonderful day!!
It is hard to believe our baby girl turned 8 today. This is a milestone birthday, the day she turns 8, the year she gets baptized a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, and attends achievement days for the girls at church. She has grown so much this past year with her testimony, her faith, and her excitement to be a member of the church. I must admit, I have struggled with her turning 8. With her independence, her wanting to be and do more on her own. She is our baby, yet she is growing up into such a sweet, independent young lady, who no longer is a baby.
