Our Precious Family Moments - April 2015 ~

This month has been filled with fun family activities. It has been a sweet month of loving and cherishing each family moment. 

 Here are some pictures taken at the 50th Birthday Party for our Daughter In Law, Mary. The best part was the lightening of 50 candles and then her blowing them out. It was fun to see all of their family there and good friends. 

 Next our son's family from Idaho came down for a 3 days; April 6th through 8th.  We had a great with with them. They loved going to a fun center where they could ride and race go-carts, there were batting cages, games, miniature golf course, and a restaurant. It was a delightful day and everyone had a ton of fun.
 On April 12th we drove up to Idaho for Austin, our grandson to be ordained a priest in the Aaronic Priesthood. We brought up with us Joseph who was ordained in February and Christian who was ordained in March. Austin's two cousins were able to stand in the circle for the ordination. There was a lot of priesthood power in that room. He received a lovely blessing from his Dad, Travis. It was one of those treasured spiritual moments.

In the lower left hand corner are these three boys when they were about 6-7 months old. In the lower right hand corner are the three of them at age 16. There is one more grandson to be ordained in August. We are hoping to take these three boys with us to the ordination. We love those sweet times for cousin bonding.   
We had a delightful dinner after the ordination. Nothing like a family celebration. My daughter in law, Amanda is known for her yummy desserts and they were so good. 
 
It's Soccer season for our Grandson's in Heber. We attended Jeffery's game on April 21st, Jonathan's game on April 27th. 
 Here is a picture of Joshua playing Soccer on April 27th. All three of these boys are very talented Soccer players. We always have fun attending their games.

We feel that families are forever and we enjoy having wonderful family moments together. "The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints views the family as the most important organization in time and all eternity. The Church teaches that everything should center in and around the family. It stresses that the preservation of family life in time and eternity takes precedence above all other interests. It foundation is as ancient as the world. Its mission has been God-ordained." ( Teachings of President's of the church - Ezra Taft Benson). This lesson entitled; Marriage and Family - Ordained by God. can be found here.

What a wonderful month of family memories! So glad you are close enough to see so many of your family. I am lucky to see my pArents or sister once or twice a year! Every picture looks like everyone is having an amazing time together!

Hi LeAnn!

Oh, I love it when you post pictures of all the kids! It just seems so strange to see them all grown up! I loved the picture of the three boys - I had truly forgotten that the three of them were that close in age, how precious . . . and they are equally handsome!

Isn't it good to stay busy with family . . . :0) I'm so glad that we are related through them!!

Fun, fun, post!

Hugs and Love,
Barb

What a beautiful post. I love the family memories you are creating for the younger generations. I do love the 'priesthood' pictures of all the boys and men. What a great heritage for all of us. Lots of love Christy

LeAnn, thes are really beautiful family images, you have been a busy group!! I really love the phrase on the wall in the last image, is that in your home?? I have a few of those here, in my home. Ones that you rub on but they look like they were painted. I have always loved them and I really like that quote!!
