Do you leave Buttprints in the sand??

So I am the first to admit that at times of great trials my Faith isn't what it should be. But After the last 6 weeks or so I have found myself humbled and a bit more on the Grateful side :)
No need to bore you with my troubles so I will skip to the part where I was starting to wonder what the point of staying on the right path was. If I work my butt off doing everything right you know the drill...reading the scriptures, prayer, temple attendance, church attendance, service Etc... you get the idea and life still kicked my butt then why not just slack a little and ease my load and take life for what it was.
This is where the humbling comes in. After some amazing lessons on Faith and Thanksgiving in R.S I realized one my scripture and temple attendance and such where definitely not where they should be and two I was to busy counting my trials and not my blessings. Which some where one in the same when looked at the right way!
Okay so this isn't coming out like I wanted so I will stop and get to the title of my post, which I am assuming your intrigued by what I meant by it. Well after trying to change my outlook and be more valiant in the things of the Lord and "Count my many blessings" I came across this poem and it hit home for me so enjoy :) ....

"Buttprints in the sand,"
Author Unknown

"One night I had a wondrous dream, One set of footprints there was seen, The footprints of my precious Lord, But mine were not along the shore. But then some strange prints appeared, And I asked the Lord, 'What have we here?' Those prints are large and round and neat 'But Lord, they are to big for my feet.'
'My child,' he said in somber tones, 'For miles I carried you along. I challenged you to walk in Faith, But you refused and made me wait.' 'You disobeyed, you would not grow, the walk of Faith you would not know, So I got tired, I got fed up, And there I dropped you on your butt.'
'Because in life, there comes a time, When one must fight, and one must climb, when one must rise and take a stand, or leave there buttprints in the sand.' "

So here is my new look on life, I don't want to leave buttprints in the sand anymore so I am going to get off my butt dust the sand off and continue in Faith for a better tomorrow. For I know I have allot to learn and even more to be grateful for!

Happy Birthday MOM!

My mom hit the big 55 this year! And since I was low on creativity and energy this is the best I came up with for a cake :) Leta "helped" ice it, I am finally getting to where I don't mind her help and I let go of my perfectionism at least temporally! Don't mind the pictures she's two and likes to be as nude as possible and the minute where home she rips her out :)

First Haircut!

Yes it took two years, but she finally had enough to cut! Your probably wondering why I would cut it after I finally got it to grow, right? Well the first time we skimmed some off it really took off and grew well so where hoping for that again and second I am perfectionist ( hard to believe right (=.. ) and I couldn't stand all the different layers and unevenness. So I had it cut it and blended it and I love it!
It took away what little curl she had, but it was worth it :) And she did great just sat there and let her work and followed commands fairly well!

Sick Little Girl :(

Poor Leta has her first official sickness! Besides the run of the mill colds and flu...not bad we made it two years :)
What we first thought where her two year molars coming in turned into more so we went to the Dr.s to confirm what I thought it could be and I was right. Hand, foot and mouth disease, nothing major and nothing can be done, but medicine to help with the discomfort.
So where just chillen and get plenty of Monster Inc. in (her new love in life) and trying to get some rest. Hard to do when she is so uncomfortable :( But hopefully with Tylenol and Ibuprofen and "magic" mouthwash she will be more comfortable. So here's an apology to anyway we may have accidentally infected before we knew what was up!

*this is an old picture I picture I found that made me laugh
