Fancy Nancy...aka...Mabry

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! My little Mabry kept me laughing...she loves Fancy Nancy (book by Jane O'connor) and got a Fancy Nancy outfit for Christmas (thanks Judie). Here are some pics of Mabes being fancy...right down to the pink hair. She is the best! ENJOY!!

Merry CHRISTmas!!

Christmas lights are one of my favorite things about Christmas. I love to squint my eyes so they blur just a little. They just make me happy!!
Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas!

December morning picture...

Chuckles took this picture early this morning...he said it was freezing cold but look how cool this picture is?
The history of this temple is amazing to me...40 years to truly is a beautiful building. Nice pic Chuckles.

So Ruby has found where Savvy's water dish is - that is her favorite thing to go for. So this is what happens when I put the dog dishes where she can't reach them. Isn't she the best!!

Mabrys Prayer...

Mabrys prayer 11/30/08
Mabry said prayers last night and it was the sweetest prayer she has said to this day. She did it w/out any help or prompting from mommy or daddy. They were not the words she usually says in her prayers and not the words that she hears us say in our prayers. I was crying when she said Amen…touched on so many levels. It was so good for my soul – Listening to my little girl talk to her Heavenly Father in her own sweet words - Seeing her with folded arms and closed eyes sitting on her princess sleeping bag – Feeling humble and so blessed to have such a pure example to learn from – Knowing that she is learning for herself how prayer will help her.
Mabes – my sweet, darling, sassy pants, yumm-a-licious 5 going on 15 year old… I hope and pray no matter what you choose in life that you know mommy and daddy love you no matter what.

Mabrys Prayer…
Dear Heavenly Father – thank you for my blessings, thank you for letting us go to church – thank you for my teacher, Sister Rhead – help me to be nice to my kindergarten friends – I love Jesus - Amen

Maybe a little too emotional but I had to write it down before I forgot it. One of those Ah-ha moments for me. Gripes...look what you started Melissa. Now I can't even see to type...sniff sniff!!
