They were just so cute last night and all of today. Aubrey woke me up this morning and said she had been reading the Book of Mormon that morning. She said, "Mom, I've already read 5 pages!" I was pretty wowed that my daughter read five pages before I was even out of bed(kids have so much to teach us, don't they?) And then Ella had her scriptures in her bag and by the stairs to make sure she didn't forget to take them to church this morning. During sacrament, you could just see them turning the pages and looking through their scriptures the whole time! I just loved seeing how excited they were to have their own scriptures. We have talked to them about taking good care of them and treating them with reverence and they have taken that very seriously. They love their scriptures so much and are treating them as their most prized possession! Isn't that how we should value them? These girls have taught me a lot this weekend. They have reminded me of how special the scriptures are and how blessed we are to have them. They should be one of our most valuable possessions.
Tonight we had FHE about the scriptures. Aubrey was in charge and taught a great lesson! She had a list of questions to ask for a family discussion about what scriptures are, how we got them, etc. It was awesome! Then I made this lame cookie cake for dessert. I call it lame, well, because I didn't decorate it very well(If you want to see some good decorating, check out my sisters blog. She is becoming a master cake decorator. Me not so much:). I didn't have time for the cookie to cool enough before frosting it, so the frosting became really runny. Oh well, the kids liked it and it tasted good. Thats all that matters, right? So, here it is....the We finished the Book of Mormon cookie!YUM!Isn't Ella's hair getting so long?I even gave Cali a big piece like her sisters-she was in heaven! When I asked her if she wanted a cookie, she said, "Yeahyeahyeahyeahyeah!" Thats how she says "yes" these days. Its so funny.
