Ward Conference Temple Trip

Eric got to have his first ward conference Jan. 18. So we planned a great ward temple trip for the 16th! It was soooooooooooooo wonderful. We had 23 ward members in our session!! Eric and I were witness couple, and the whole thing was just fabulous. Afterwards we went to dinner with the Jenkins, Heaps, and Michelle Medley. It was awesome. And Eric had the greatest talk at ward conference that Sunday! He taught us using the parable of the 10 virgins. He gave us 3 ways to add oil to our lamps-consistent: prayer, scripture study and attendance (to sacrament meeting and the temple) and 3 warning against getting cracks in our vessels: not paying tithing, contention, and speaking badly of others. It was awesome!! I love the temple and my Bishop husband!!

And added bonus picture of Eric and Emery :)

Driving home

Here's a couple extra pictures from our trip
This is CharlyAnn and me on New Year's Day morning. The first picture of the new year! Notice what she has in her licorice...
...which also became on of Emery's favorite treats. Only when she eats them they get everywhere! But we didn't care. 12 hour drive home-keep passing back the licorice!
This is the trampoline burn Brooke got in WA-she loved making up stories about how she got it when people would ask. My favorite was that a boy kissed her who had poison lips! That's Brooke!
This is the sunset we drove home with on Sat. Jan. 3. This was in Mountain Home, ID. It was amazing,

New Year's!

Once we saw that Jack was going to a) live and b) recover more than initially anticipated, we took advantage of the gathering of cousins and family. We played games and ate food and watched movies...and went to the trampoline park! It was, as usual, so fun. Well, actually, I didn't jump, and Eric didn't jump because of his back/leg/nerve problem, but it was so fun watching the fun.

There is a mass of cousins in this picture
Ninja Ron! Backflip Tyler!
I think Nick just skyjumped Jared
CharlyAnn loved loved loved it. Last time she chilled on the toddler tramps, but this time she refused. She wanted to jump with the big kids and boy did she!

Emery on the other hand loved the toddler tramps
Brayden and Viana. It was SO great being with Nick's family. They are all amazing people. (Brayden is 13 months OLDER than Viana)
Ram is a fearless stunt man in the foam pits

The masses at the end!
 And of course we are always so blessed to be around the corner from the temple when we are at Grandma's house!
