Anyway, our family theme this year is: Our dinner consisted of crockpot chicken over rice (a family favorite), steamed broccoli, fresh pineapple, buttery bread, and sparkling raspberry lemonade.
During dinner we talked about our theme and what it means. We let the kids know that our home should be a heaven on earth and we should always strive to have the spirit here. It is a safe haven for everyone who enters and no one should have to worry about being sad or unhappy while in our home. We love our family and we have the eternal blessings of the temple to be together forever as an eternal family, and we need to always remember that. We also talked about how our family is the most important thing in this life and we should always treat each other like one of our most prized possesions. We stick up for each other and help each other. Always, no matter what.
I made these special back-to-school gifts for each child. During April's General Conference, I remembered hearing a talk about how every child should have a picture of the temple in their room. It's been my goal to make that happen. I've had the supplies for these for awhile, but never made them until now. I think they turned out fabulously!
This is Magnus'. I made them all to match their rooms.
The kids were very excited about their pictures. It made me happy.
Excpet Bear really wanted to take the flower off of his picture, haha. Too bad I totally super-glued it on. Sorry Bear!
