So I had no need for a title to this post, This pic explains it all. YES we are moving, but dont freak out. Ok so Heavenly Father is always aware of us and through trials is where we find him the most. And for all of you that know Nephi and I you know we havent had the best circumstances in our lives. Luckily they lead us to each other but we have had trails here too. Well with the situation we were both left in after our first marriages we never ever thought we would be getting into a home anytime soon. So as luck would have it a couple in our ward had been praying about finding someone to rent their house. They had bought another house in the ward and have had touble selling the other. Through prayer they felt strongly about asking us. Well....... they are willing to rent to us for a year and at the end of the year evaluate the situation and see where things stand. From that point on they want to talk about helping us buy the house. So its in our same ward and only a few blocks from where we are. Can you believe it???? Its three bedroom, two bath and has a great front yard and a fenced back. I am so overwhelmed with emotion about this. I feel the spirit so stong in our lives right now. I cant even believe how blessed we are and how aware of us our Father in Heaven is. I know that this is going to be an adventure, and I cant wait to start it. We will be moving the last week of March. So Im sure alot of pics will be coming soon. I just had to share this wonderful news, and I needed a reason for a post. What a dang good reason.

MaKiN cOoKiEs WiTh MaMa

I just love being a mom, and nights like tonight make it even better. Bubba wanted to "help" me make cookies tonight. He was in awe of the kitchen aid mixer, it was really cute. He kept trying to sneak a finger or two in when he thought I wasn't looking.

So I thought, What the heck might as well teach him the true reason mommy likes to make cookies in the first place..................... EATING THE DOUGH

While we were waiting for the cookies to come out of the oven we find cheap entertainment from Maverick, aka wanna be Mr. Potato head.

I don't know why he loves wearing these glasses but it cracks me up!!
Recently Bubba also discovered that he likes to dip his cookies in milk like daddy, this picture is so darling

And last but not least I thought Id share with you all the best chocolate chip recipe, it makes them soft and soooo chewy.
1c. butter
1c. sugar
1c. brown sugar
2 eggs
2 1/2c. oatmeal(powdered in blender)
1/2tsp salt
1tsp. baking powder
1tsp. baking soda
1tsp. vanilla
2c. flour
1pkg. chocolate chips

preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cream butter and sugars. Blend in eggs; add oatmeal. Mix dry ingredients. Mix will be very stiff. Mix in chips. Put 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 9 min-no more

I hope you love these cookies as much as we do. When we eat them it feels like, THERES A PARTY IN MY TUMMY, SO YUMMY SO YUMMY. If you've seen yo gabba gabba you'll know that song. hahahaha

Edit from first time posting.....This movie does have very cheesy acting, just take to heart the message. :)

So after seeing this movie on one of my friends blogs, I decided to get it and see what its about. All I can say is that it couldn't have come at a better time in our lives to watch it. Marriage is work, theres no other way to put it. And sometimes its hard work and we don't feel like fighting for it anymore. Nephi and I have both had some things we have had to heal from from the past and trying to keep a good marriage has been alot of trial and error. This movie struck a heart string for me and made me realize how much I love Nephi and that no matter how hard life gets I will love him. Love is a choice, and sometimes its not the easy one but its the one that's most worth it. There is a book that is in the movie that you can follow called "The Love Dare". Its a 40 day challenge for husbands and wives to practise unconditional love. I'm not even kidding as soon as the movie ended we loaded up in the car and went to Barnes and Noble and bought it. I'm excited to see our lives change even more. I strongly recommend this movie and book to EVERYONE!!

I love this scripture that is on the back of the book, Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things. Love never fails. 1 Corinthians 13:7-8
If any of you watch this movie please tell me what you think, Or if you have already seen it tell me your thoughts too. I feel so uplifted today and I'm so thankful for that
