7 And we did take our tents and whatsoever things were possible for us, and did journey in the wilderness for the space of many days. And after we had journeyed for the space of many days we did pitch our tents.
8 And my people would that we should call the name of the place Nephi; wherefore, we did call it Nephi.
9 And all those who were with me did take upon them to call themselves the people of Nephi.
10 And we did observe to keep the judgments, and the statutes, and the commandments of the Lord in all things, according to the law of Moses. (Keeping the commandments)
11 And the Lord was with us; and we did prosper exceedingly; for we did sow seed, and we did reap again in abundance. And we began to raise flocks, and herds, and animals of every kind. (they had gardens and animals)
12 And I, Nephi, had also brought the records which were engraven upon the plates of brass; and also the ball, or compass, which was prepared for my father by the hand of the Lord, according to that which is written. (scriptures)
13 And it came to pass that we began to prosper exceedingly, and to multiply in the land.
14 And I, Nephi, did take the sword of Laban, and after the manner of it did make many swords, lest by any means the people who were now called Lamanites should come upon us and destroy us; for I knew their hatred towards me and my children and those who were called my people. (they were prepared just in case something bad came upon them)
15 And I did teach my people to build buildings, and to work in all manner of wood, and of iron, and of copper, and of brass, and of steel, and of gold, and of silver, and of precious ores, which were in great abundance.
16 And I, Nephi, did build a temple; and I did construct it after the manner of the temple of Solomon save it were not built of so many precious things; for they were not to be found upon the land, wherefore, it could not be built like unto Solomon’s temple. But the manner of the construction was like unto the temple of Solomon; and the workmanship thereof was exceedingly fine. (temple attendance)
17 And it came to pass that I, Nephi, did cause my people to be industrious, and to labor with their hands. (hard working people)

Lindsey and Sharon (the best aunts in the world) helped me put some beautiful homecoming mums together for the girls this weekend. We had a nice mum-making weekend while all the boys watched football and went out on the boat with the kids. It was so fun. My sister, Lindsey, really out-did herself on Jensen's mum.. Granted, jensen will have to go see the chiropractor first thing Saturday morning after wearing her mum all day....THAT SUCKER IS HEAVY but it was GREATLY appreciated.
Sharon did a great job on Reagan's mum.

When it is time to pack up lunches...
It goes a little something like this:
(today, I am a little low on treats but you get the idea)
It could help you maintain your sanity every morning too.

We spent countless hours by the pool.
Cheer camp was a blast.
Jensen and Tanner had the time of their lives at EFY in Provo on the BYU Campus. Seriously folks. That was the best 1,000 dollars we spent all year. It made a huge impact on both of them.
Fun with Scooby Doo!
Gotta love some roller coaster action.
