Women's Conference

I was SO excited for Women's Conference this fall.  Twice a year our prophets & apostles speak to the women of the church.  All women & girls ages 8+ are invited to attend.  This was the first time that I got to go with all three of my girls.

I took them all out to dinner, just the 4 of us & then we went to an ice cream social at the church building.  We enjoyed the conference together (even if two of them fell asleep in my lap).  I cherished having my sweet angels by my side the whole night.

And you know what the best part is?  We get to do this every March & every September from here on out.  HOW SPECIAL is that?

Present Time!

Taya got a lot of fun gifts for her birthday this year.

Lorien got her a really neat 3D writing pad.
You draw on the 3D paper & put the glasses
on to see your drawing come out in 3D.

Nancy got her some boots (her favorite type
of clothing)

Nancy also got her some church shoes, dresses,
cake pans, shirts, & jeans too.

Grandma Kinsfather & Grandma Cherry both
gave her some spending money.  (She bought
some horses & an Inside Out character with her
new money.)

The boys gave Taya the game of LIFE.

Opa & Oma gave her all the inside out emotion characters.

Cadence gave Taya the Inside Out console to go
with all her new characters.  The console makes
the characters light up.

For Taya's birthday dinner she asked for homemade sweet
meatballs & funeral potatoes.  The whole family LOVES
this dinner so it was yummy.

And after dinner we did a video chat with family in UT.
Mimi & Baba gave Taya a horse & a horse shower, &
Auntie Cari & Uncle Justin gave her a horse trailer with
a few horses.

Taya had a WONDERFUL 8th birthday.  Happy birthday my sweet baby girl.

Taya's Birthday Lunch

For Taya's birthday, Trek took the day off of work & we surprised Taya at school for her lunch period.  She was SO excited to eat lunch with us.

And of course she wanted to do some selfies at the lunch table.  (I hate selfies. . . especially ones with me in them, but she loves them so I did them for her.)

And look at these monkeys.  I love them way too much.

It was a great day for the birthday girl.

Taya's 8th Birthday Breakfast

I still can't believe my baby girl is 8 years old already.

For her birthday breakfast I made giant homemade blueberry muffins, bacon, sausage, & of course the Potter Family Birthday Breakfast ding dong.

She was very happy with her special breakfast.

Canyon especially loved his ding dong.

8 years old already.  My my my how time flies.

Happy birthday little misses.  It's great to be 8!
