Never take the normal things in life for granted...

We moved into our new home about 1 month ago and we have never been happier here in Vegas. It is so nice to have our own place, no shared walls and feel free to be our LOUD selves. LOL!!! Ben is having so much fun exploring and mostly climbing, jumping and running. Pics to come...

Today with Ben...
Ben: I love Jesus!
me: You do? I love Jesus too
Ben: i want to tell Jesus I'm sick. He has doctors, Jesus has doctors.

Attending church as a family seemed like such a far off miracle that I have since realized I took it for granted that my family growing up went to church together as a family and that when I got married it would be the same. We'd go to church as a family. Little did I know the path in store for us and we realized that Ricky would have to work on Sundays for now. After a long year of prayers and faithful endurance, Ricky got the opportunity to switch to evening shifts at work and attend church with us this last Sunday. Ben was so good during sacrament meeting! He mainly obsessed over his squirrel book and flipping through his mini scriptures. And then there was the occasional instant bear hug to Daddy and huge smile from Ben. It was so cute! It's been almost a year since we got to attend church as a family and I feel very blessed to be a family at church again! He still has to work in the evenings, but we'll take what we can get for now!
