He had done so much good during his presidency, and he will be sincerely missed by so many. I loved the prophet, and its going to be very different without him here. Although I have faith that whoever is called to lead the church will do the lords will, I cant imagine anyone accomplishing as much as did President Hinckley.
I am thankful for the Temple, and for the opportunity to be sealed to our family. The picture above is President Hinckley and his wife who passed away in 2004. I am so grateful that they are together again, and I am truly blessed to have the gospel in my life.
"I am no longer a young man filled with energy and vitality. I am an old man. I'm given to meditation and prayer. I would enjoy sitting in a rocker, swallowing prescriptions, listening to soft music, and contemplating the things of the universe. But such activity offers no challenge and makes no contribution. I wish to be up and doing. I wish to face each day with resolution and purpose. I wish to use every waking hour to give encouragement, to bless those whose burdens are heavy, to build faith and strength of testimony."- President Gordon B. Hinckley.

The living room including some good friends :) Recognize the rug from a previous post? I LOVE it in the room.
LCD TV. We are watching Brian Regan, of course.
The Master. The guest bathroom. We haven't done anything with the guest room yet.The office. And, a very sleepy dog from last nights activities.
We hooked up "Rock Band" for everyone to play, and it was a huge hit. The kids fought over it, while the adults casually "tried" out the instruments. My dad even got ahold of the mic at one point, while Malcolm rocked out the drums.
We couldn't find the drumsticks, so we improvised and used paint brushes and spoons. :)
Thank you to everyone that was able to make it, and we really missed those of you who couldn't. The house was NOT a disaster after ward, and nothing was broken or ruined (we were a little worried about all of our new stuff). I also want to thank my parents for arriving early to help out, even with headaches. My mom was a HUGE help with preparing the table and making sure that all of the food was out and full. Thank you to Ben and Jan for the gifts and for all the great food. We are so happy that we live close enough to see them more often.

So, let us know what you think. Any information about either breed would be good. Its a hard decision! Is there anyone out there that has had the opportunity to get to know both types of dog? We want an obedient, playful but not hyperactive, sweet and loving dog that will get along with kids and our anti-social Brisbane. Is that too much to ask?
