Mommy and Cobin's first successful sledding day! (the first time we didn't have waterproof snowpants and cobin hated it) Cobin and Lucas reading together. I was sure that by the time I ran upstairs to get my camera and came back Lucas would have moved on, but here they are!
Today James and I gave our first talks here in this ward. Mine was over Pray Always by David A. Bednar from last GC. I really like that talk. It's such a relief to have it done because I get so nervous about it, but with each one I get a little better at conquering that unneccesary fear. What really made my day though, was when we were at home eating lunch after church. Cobin started to sing a new song, one I hadn't taught him. Here's how it sounded: "Something something a suuuuuunbeam, a suuuuunbeam, a suuuuunbeam" So nursery workers/MaryAnn: He's retaining something! Thanks! Made me smile.
Recently, with the job change and move, finances have become a hot topic in the Daugherty house. We have a plan, but I came across this freebie from a Parent's featured blog: for a few more days Suze Orman's 2009 Action Plan is downloadable from oprah's website. This book is new, soon to be released. Here's the link: http://www.oprah.com/article/oprahshow/20081119_tows_bookdownload
I have been trying to get used to the snow, not really liking the cold here. But here is one thing that makes it more ok. These pictures were taken from inside my house.... and this is a frequent view around here. On our way home from church the other day we saw about 50 hanging out in a snow covered field half a mile from our house. When they come by Cobin just stares at them in awe.
