52 Blessings - Week 9

* My 52 Weeks of Blessings in No Particular Order *

Credits - "Spring Breeze" kit by ME

I was just updating my blog banner & I liked it so much, that I decided to make it bigger into a layout so I could print it. Just looking at our family picture made me so HAPPY.

My Blessing this week is MY FAMILY!! I couldn't imagine NOT being with them. I am so thankful that we can be a Family Forever! I know I have already posted about my hubby, my girls & my boys, but now I'm just so grateful that we can always be together as a family!!Knowing that we will always be together, I think it really makes us work harder at everything we do & also appreciate each other more! I'm not saying our family is perfect, we are far from it. (And we will be even happier when the kids' book reports/projects will be done this week. grrr don't get me started.) But I love each and every person in my family. And not just my little family within my house. I'm also so blessed to have wonderful extended families! I Love ALL of them!!! Thank you for being a part of my Eternal FAMILY!!

We wanted to do something together as a family tonight, so we decided to take the kids to the Mesa Temple Visitor's Center this evening to see the "Reflections of Christ" exhibit depicting Jesus' life on earth shown in photographs taken by Mark Mabry. One word - WOW!!! He is very talented & these photographs are AMAZING!! You could feel our Savior's LOVE just by looking at all the beautiful photographs and listening to the sweet music. Even my littlest one, Anson, could tell me who was in the pictures and that He loves ALL of us. We can learn so much from Christ's example. And I'm so grateful for His atoning sacrifice so that we may all be resurrected & live again!

Families are really everything! I don't know what I would do without mine. I love your banner/layout. Your family is adorable.

I can't wait to go to that exhibit forever. My good friend Rob helped to frame all of the photographs, and has been talking about it for months. Heck...maybe we will even go tonight for FHE.
