Where are the Pics?

So, here I am ready to update the blog and cannot find my USB for the camera. I have always kept it in the desk drawer and now it is gone. I am just hoping it didn't find its way to the garbage can. Ciara has now figured out that she can throw things away in there and not just pull them out. Honestly between her and Otto, I almost think the garbage can needs to be strapped to the wall. It's almost like they help each other. It was really cute though the other day when she grabbed the diaper I had just taken off of her and ran to the kitchen to throw it away. The best part... She didn't pull it back out!

Kylie got to go and do baptisms for the dead for the first time on Saturday. The YM and YW went to the Provo Temple and spent a couple of hours there and then went to McDonalds (YUCK!) and spent another couple of hours there too! She really enjoyed it and had fun and can't wait to do it again. Dallin was pretty excited too, until he found out that he still isn't old enough and he just couldn't understand why he couldn't go and watch at the very least.

Randy spent last week in Kalispell, Montana for a week of more work training, (AKA more like a little R&R). His first morning there it was -9 degrees. And I was thinking 20 was too cold. Remind me to never move to Montana. He got to come home and enjoy a couple of days of 40's and swore that it wasy really warm. We are glad he is home. Ciara was teething while he was gone and spent a lot of time crying and upset, and Dallin was just sure it was cause she missed her daddy. Too cute!

On a sad yet happy note, we did receive notice of President Hinckley passing on last night. I am happy for him though; as we know he missed his Marjorie so much. He was an incredible example of kindness and love though. He has been the most impressionable prophet in my life. I have been blessed several times to attend Women's conference and a General Conference with my family and his presence was so strong. Everytime he walked into the room you could feel his love for you and the spirit that he carried with him. It was always a powerful and emotional experience. I am grateful to him for all of the service he has done for the church and the people. He will be greatly missed! May we all try to be more like him in our own lives and carry on his legacy.

I love that Ciara is able to throw away trash! On the down side it will mean trouble!! I cant wait to come visit so I can see more of her and Otto being siblings! I think its really neat and Im so proud of Ky for being able to do baptisms! I never did until I was in the YW program as a leader and it really is a great experience! Hang in there Dall it will be no time at all when you will be there.
We to were sad at the thought of President Hinckley passing but also so greatful and happy for him to. He did leave quite a great legacy and I hope we can all strive to live to be more like him and our Heavenly Father. Hope you soon find that dang cord!
