how long has it been??!

A lot has been going on here in our home.
Here is a quick recap:

James, still working hard....he has now lost 40 lbs since August and is still going.  He completely changed his diet  (for the better obviously) and has been working out like a mad man.  He is looking oh. so. good. I am so proud of him!

Me, I got released from my calling at so so sad........but bittersweet at the same time.  I was 2nd Counselor in the Relief Society and was released and then called as a teacher for CTR5.  Quite the change, but I am looking forward to learning more from the children and also to be able to just enjoy Relief Society enrichment's.  I will miss Karen, Cindy, Rebecca, and Lindsay so much, the meetings, the visits, the planning, the preparing, the spirit, the learning, the service, the teaching, the growing, the testimony building experiences.  But who says I can't have that with primary?? I am so going to make this the best experience ever.
To have a Relief Society calling was for me to learn and grow in the church...and I cannot believe how much my testimony grew.  I love my sisters in my ward and what they taught me....mostly about service and also about letting go and giving yourself to our Heavenly Father. I testify that Visiting Teaching is the way Heavenly Father takes care of us through each other.  I have a testimony that Joseph Smith is a true prophet and that we are here to do Heavenly Fathers work.  I am so blessed to be in this church and to have the blessings that I have...I would have nothing without Him.

Gabe, he is reading up a storm....he is so smart and just decided one day he was going to read and now he just reads everything! He is wanting to learn more and his favorite show right now is Wheel of Fortune.....I can use it as a bribe to get him to clean up his room/be nice to his brother/eat his dinner.

Nolan, hmmmm, what to say about Nolan.  well, he is still very cuddly, still very whiny (someone please help me) , talking a ton and will not have anything to do with anything his age (thomas the train, trucks, animals, mickey mouse) He wants everything superhero or army. We love him so much :)
