A Good Day

The title of today's blog comes from a wonderful email we received from my sister-in-law Elise. My brother is serving in Iraq. Today the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints sent Elder Pieper of the 1st Quorum of the Seventy to Iraq. We were told in my brother's letter today that the Church has worked for 6 years to send a representative over. Today Iraq was blessed to become a district. Elder Pieper told the men and women that just because they're in Iraq and may not know the language, they are still shining a light everywhere they go (the soldiers are not allowed to proselyte in Iraq). Bryce's letter truly conveyed his feelings for his family, the Church, and we could feel the Spirit behind what was written. War is not something we want to see happen, but we know that because of it many special and great things can come about.

The rest of the day was good as well. When Mike made it home from church and Landon has awoke from his three hour nap the boys went for a bike ride. Landon looked especially cute today thus the pictures below. The three of us played for a few hours and it was joyful to be together.

We are slowly packing every day to get ready for Christmas Vacation. Mike and I are excited are trying to tell Landon all about what will be happening in about a week's time. I am not sure how much blogging we will get done before we leave, but I am sure we will post plenty of pictures while in California.
