New Year’s Eve was spent at my sister Leah’s house, but let’s back up to the previous week. My sister in law Whit planned for the Scott family to go to a nearby homeless shelter and help provide lunch. We met at her house and made 50 sack lunches in an assembly line, it was a lot of fun. J still talks about how fun it was and how good it made him feel. I definitely want to do more family service projects.
Back to New Years, we all brought appetizer type foods(I brought homemade queso blanco) little smokies, quiche, bruschetta, and so so much more! I forgot to take any pics, so I’ll steal this one of me and my sisters from Christmas Eve.
We left about 9:30pm and saw fireworks on the way home. Josh and I stayed up till 12 and then I was out(life with a newborn ha).
New Year’s Day I started it off with a 5 mile run, feels so good to just run when Josh is home to watch the kiddos:)
It’s a reminder that when we do our part(read scriptures daily, pray daily, take the sacrament, go to the temple, have family night, and so on) that He will add his power to our efforts. To me that means He will help us accomplish things we wouldn’t otherwise be able to accomplish. I want those blessings and added power in my life, so we’re gonna work on doing our part of the deal.
I hope everyone has had a great 2016 so far! As always, if you ever have questions don’t hesitate to ask:)
