Here we go!

Natalie and Taylor will be turning 8 on March 24th, 2012.  I cannot believe we are already here!  It really does seem like just a minute ago they were babies, and I was tired!  Ok, I'm still tired, but they are older now!  They will have an interview with the Bishop, and there tell him if they have made the choice to get baptized into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.  I am so thankful for my own membership in the church.  Times have not always been easy for  me, especially as a teenager, and therefor my testimony struggled.  But He never left me.

The girls attended their baptism preview on Sunday.  I am glad their birthday is in March because I don't think they could stand to wait any longer!  They got these amazing towels for their special day.  They snuggled them all day.  When Natalie woke up Monday morning I went in their room and as she was making her bed, she said that she was so excited she wished she could have been baptized yesterday :)  Silly girl!  I told her how sad Grandma and Grandpa Blue would have been if they missed it.



This subway art was displayed on the table.  I LOVE IT!  (Thanks for the post Cherie!)


And in other news.......










I don't have room in my life for HATERS.  My priorities are my family, health, calling, and a million other things before I worry about what other people think about me or my family.  
I found myself questioning this on Sunday evening.  I received an email that was not so charming.  
I'm not going to get into it, but it left me feeling like...."Am I crazy???"  "Did we make the right choice???"

Well folks, we did make the right choice.  Jason and I parent with the help of the Holy Ghost.  We follow the promptings that are given to us.  We use these gifts to guide our kids to happiness.  

So to all my haters out there......

Haters gonna hate.  

Bye...bye...

Can you believe our babies are almost getting baptized?? Your girls are so cute and I can just tell they have such sweet testimonies. Jace is beyond excited for his baptism day. It melts my heart to see such young sweet spirits and to see the rising generation of the church. So exciting! Love the little towels they got. What a great idea!

As far as the haters go... forget em! I can't imagine you have any haters. Seriously, just keep on keepin' on sista. I think you are amazing! Love to you!!

Soak up every minute of that day - it's just like all the others, it goes by in a blur! The girls are beautiful inside and out, I can tell! Congrats to them for making such a huge step towards eternity. Some people never grow up - don't let 'em get to you - You're awesome and so is your fam. :)

Your girls are so sweet and lovely, just like their Mama! I can't believe how old they're getting and I'm so excited for them to be baptized. I know you took the higher ground by not getting involved in confrontation. You know what is best for your children and you stick to it, and I admire you for it. Love ya.

That picture is going to make me smile all week!! I am so happy the girls are excited to get baptized and love their towels.

I am happy I get to teach the class this year along with Joleen. The kids are all soooooo excited :-D

I can't believe your twins are going to be baptized soon. They have grown up so much in the short time you have been in this ward. I am sorry to hear about that not-so-nice e-mail. You are right to do what you think is best. It is hard to not care what other people think, but in the end, the only judge that matters is the one you will meet in heaven. You are an example to many people around you. I think you should know that.
