Miracles never cease and awesome cards

This is mostly just to show to my family that my boys can get dressed up. We are somehow known as not being the most dressed up family (my sister didn't think my boys would even wear a tie to her wedding). Well ha!

This morning this what the boys voluntarily decided to wear to church. They just looked so darn handsome that I had snap a picture. You also never know if it will happen again.

Creighton was so excited that he looked just like daddy for church.

I also wanted to show off the cards that I got for our girls card exchange this month. They were
also just so darn cute that I thought everyone deserves a little recognition.

I went through a creative dry-spell after summer and we went our trips then I was pregnant and sick. Now that I am feeling better I'm excited to get creative again.

I am starting to get caught up on my scrapbooks and I really enjoyed making my card this month. So, here is my challenge: Create something, big or small. It will make you feel better.

Here is part of President Uchtdorfs talk that he gave at the Relief Society Broadcast (that I missed because I was at the Diamondbacks game!) I love what he had to say:

The Work of Creation
The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul. No matter our talents, education, backgrounds, or abilities, we each have an inherent wish to create something that did not exist before.
Everyone can create. You don’t need money, position, or influence in order to create something of substance or beauty.
Creation brings deep satisfaction and fulfillment. We develop ourselves and others when we take unorganized matter into our hands and mold it into something of beauty—and I am not talking about the process of cleaning the rooms of your teenage children.
You might say, “I’m not the creative type. When I sing, I’m always half a tone above or below the note. I cannot draw a line without a ruler. And the only practical use for my homemade bread is as a paperweight or as a doorstop.”
If that is how you feel, think again, and remember that you are spirit daughters of the most creative Being in the universe. Isn’t it remarkable to think that your very spirits are fashioned by an endlessly creative and eternally compassionate God? Think about it—your spirit body is a masterpiece, created with a beauty, function, and capacity beyond imagination.
