Heather was baptized and confirmed by her father on September 3rd 2011. It was a beautiful day and it was very nice to have family and friends there. The opening prayer was given by Timothy Hamson. The opening song was When I am Baptized. Talk on Baptism was given by Scott Milner(Norah's Grandpa). The witnesses for Heather's baptism was Allen Spaulding(Grandpa) and LaMar Scott(Home Teacher).

Alan Hamson gave the talk on the gift of the Holy Ghost. He did a great job. It was so nice to see my children growing up and making good choices. There was a really nice spirit there throughout the whole program. The closing song was When Jesus Christ was Baptised. The closing prayer was by Emily Milner.

Norah's grandparents where on a mission and couldn't be there, but they sent their testimony to be read outload for Norah. I thought that was a great way for them to be involved if they couldn't be there.

Oct 1st - 20th

Life is very busy. Jennifer and Sara are playing a lot of volleyball and some basketball. Alan & Timothy have basketball and Heather has horses & Gymnastics.

This month we found out that David has received a raise. The money will be nice, but I was more happy that he was being rewarded for his hard work. Work has been very demanding lately and has been a strain on him and the family. He is worried about how it is all going to turn out and there is a lot of fear in the future on how the economy is going. We both don't have a lot of control, but are trying to save as much as we can for the future.

Jennifer has had a rough month in volleyball. She is playing well, but would like to be playing better and wishing they could win more. She is solid as a rock and playing very consistent. The team is playing well, but have some areas they need to improve in. They also need to be a little more mentally tough. Which isn't easy and they are doing a lot better. They are still learning how to win. Playing through hard time and coming out on top. Have the talent to be a top 25 team, but a lot of work to actually be there.

This week has been hard. All the medical surgeries coming up and trying to find a balance between sports and being a good parent. It has been hard to be at all the athletic events and also keep a home in order. We already lost Heather this week and made me wonder how i can be two places at once. We are not perfect, but are trying to help all our children with all there needs.

In Sept we watched a lot of Volleyball and Jennifer was named the player of the month. She has been playing great and had gained a lot of confidence. It had been a lot of fun to watch her. Sara is also playing in a league and I try to help her when I can.

We also went to the Lindon Elementary Carnival and Heather had a lot of fun. Heather is also doing Horses and Gymnastics, while Timothy and Alan have started Bball.

We have also moved the girls to the green room and the boys into the purple room. That was quite the adventure. Everyone is pretty much moved in except for Alan. All his stuff is in the room, but most of his stuff is still on the floor. It wasn't fun, but needed to be done and the kids stuff is more organized now.

Aug 22-Sept 4

It has been really busy with school starting and my mom came down to do a sewing camp with Timothy and Heather. Heather made a skirt and shirt and Timothy made a tie and a snuggy. They had a lot of fun.

While my mom was here we also got an opportunity to go do baptisms with our children. It is always great to be in the temple. David did the baptisms and the confirmations. It was so nice to be in the temple with my family and see my husband use his priesthood.

Jennifer also started playing VB at BYU and is doing great.
