Sweet prayers

So we decided we are going to have a treat night once a week instead of no candy. We were having different kinds of treats instead of candy that were doing more damage than candy in the long run. So we've had our "treat night" 3 times now and it's working really well! We're doing this as a family so even the kids have one day they can have treats. I think it's teaching them that treats are only a sometimes thing. Yes, I know this is something they should have been taught from the beginning, but when I have such a sweet tooth I really didn't care until now. Anyway, I was putting the kids to bed and was in with Jarrett while he said his prayers. He said his normal prayer but was trying to change it up. He said, "Thank you for letting us have a good treat day". It was so cute! He can be so funny, I just love the little guy!

I'm feeling very blessed lately. I feel like I'm spoiled with the life I have. I have a wonderful husband who puts up wth a lot from me. I have 3 great kids whom I love dearly. Rachel is always willing to help me with anything. She always seems to know when I'm having a hard time. Jarrett makes me laugh with his random remarks. Yesterday he told me he wants to wear his muscle shirt so he can keep his muscles. Carter is just so cute and chubby! I have a nice home, too. I'm so very grateful for everything that blesses my life!

General Conference

I'm so excited for General Conference this weekend! I've made some little Conference books for the kids with all kinds of activities so they won't get bored. Sugardoodle has lots of ideas for Conference. I have a link on my blog to that blog, if anyone is interested. I look forward to hearing from our leaders this time of year. With it being spring and all, I feel like it's a time to renew myself and how I live the gospel. It's a good time of reflection for me.
