~My Reason For Our Blog~ "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

~Dreams Come True~
I love this note I found on Jolene's board. She asked months ago if she could have a guinea pig, Ward had her do research on them, he had do a presentation on them and why she should have one, she read about them on the computer, she brought home books, she watched YouTube videos which only increased her desire to have one. I wasn't sure, we already have an indoor cat, an outside dog, and a rabbit. I didn't want another pet. Then Ward thought maybe Santa could bring the cage and we could take both the girls to pick out the guinea pigs for Jolene's birthday. So the morning after Christmas this this the sign I found. She was so excited, she counted down the days until she would have her own guinea pig, she had picked out a name if it was a boy and name if it was a girl. The day of her birthday we headed to the pet store, she ran inside anxious to pick one out, only to discover all 4 cages were empty! Her face looked so sad, it broke my heart. She was devastated. We crossed our fingers and headed to the next pet store. They had seven guinea pigs. The girls looked them over, held a few of them, and then decided on the two smallest little boys. They were so happy! Jolene named her new pet immediately, Captain. Raychel took a little longer deciding on a name and ended up settling on Pepper.
