This weekend we took Rocklin to go meet Santa. I was curious if he'd scream for dear life or if he'd like it. Well, he LOVED Santa!! As soon as we brought him up to sit on Santa's lap, he just started giggling and smiling so big. He looked right at the camera and smiled, as if he knew exactly what he was supposed to do. He kept reaching for Santa's beard and playing with it and the cute Santa was so nice and just smiled and let him play with him. Here's a picture; I know it's tiny, but when I tried blowing it up it just gets fuzzy.I hope you all have a Merry Christmas! We're heading out to meet up with my family in snow country for the next week or so and I doubt I'll be blogging while I'm there. Be sure to check back around the new year and I'm sure I'll have lots of fun pictures to share!

I just wanted to share something that happened to me yesterday, something that was a simple reminder to me that the Lord watches out for us. Rocklin has been sick this week, and whatever he has I got it too...bad. Yesterday I was miserable and couldn't even get out of bed without getting sick. Luckily Adam was able to get home from work a little earlier than usual and was great about taking care of Rocklin while I rested. I told Adam a little later that night that I think I need a blessing to be able to get through the sickness, especially so that I could take care of Rocklin without him around the next day. He said no problem and went ahead and got Rocklin ready for bed and then was going to come in and give me a blessing. Then we heard a knock on the door. It's unusual that anyone comes to our house late at night, so we weren't sure who it could be. Adam opened the door and there were the missionaries, just saying they were in the neighborhood and thought to stop by and say hello to us. They've never been to our apartment before, and I know it was the spirit leading them to our place. The missionaries were able to help Adam give me a blessing. And funny enough I had put together some Christmas goodies in a package for the ladies I visit teach, but was unable to deliver them since with Rocklin sick I wasn't able to go. I had two little goodie packages - one for each missionary.
While I'm still not feeling 100%, I am feeling a lot better than yesterday and I know it's because the Lord was watching out for me and I was able to get a much needed blessing last night. I am so thankful to have the priesthood in my home and also thankful to be able to recognize the simple truths in my life!!
