Snowy Sunday

Today started with hubby driving around to see if church should be canceled. After nearly slamming into a barricade the decision was made. YEAH! My sweet daughters told Tom that I was a little too happy church was canceled. I wouldn't want this every Sunday, but it was a nice change. I really enjoyed having Tom home today. We all did.

Cameron was supposed to teach the Priest Quorum today so Tom thought it would be a good idea to teach us instead. (Four girls and Dad, yea I can see the similarities). Anyway, he did a great job. I kept getting dirty looks for snapping pictures during "church". Courts was assigned to give a talk, and ironically, our closing speaker was President Hinckley. We watched his talk from the Sunday morning session of the last conference.

The little girls bundled up and went outside to enjoy the snow. Cam and Court's shoveled some of the neighbors walks and driveways with their friends. Later on we ate good food with good company.

I was sad for a moment when I heard of Pres. Hinckley's death. He was a great man. He will be missed. His impact on the church was immeasurable. I can't be sad when I think of him being reunited with his sweet wife. I am grateful for that knowledge.

Our beloved Prophet showed us how to live happily.

Sounds like a lovely Sunday at home. I also can only smile when I think of President Hinckley's reunions with his sweet wife.
