And now we're done....time to go home! so cute.
Visits lately have been really challenging for us but especially for this little man! (who has thinned out like a big boy). We both got our hopes up that this week we would finally move forward with something at court. We have been there for 6+ months! Well, really 28 months since baby K was born but in the termination court 6 plus. Last week we got word that they would be changing judges on us for the 3rd time and that will push us back a month! It does not sound like a big thing, 4 weeks but that means 16 more visits, 4 less Saturdays together and who knows what kind of drama on the visits and after. I know we can make it through this and all will be ok but at the moment I just want to be done. Done for the baby especially. I will leave out the details. Just done!...
Barbara Thompson at last General Conference gave a talk entitled "Cleave unto the Covenants" which I love! I think it was exactly the reminder that I needed.
"Lift up thy heart and rejoice, and cleave unto the covenants which thou has made." D&C 25:13
Which was given to Emma Smith, who was asked to endure so much! To cleave means "to adhere firmly and closely to something." And I know that we are sustained through those covenants through the good times as well as the bad.
We have some really great new members at our church right! this is a group of them going to the temple for the first time. they had prepared family history names and were able to take part in some really great family history work. They are great examples to me and I am so grateful to be a part of their lives and their stories as they continue to live them.

and one more of the museum
not that you can tell but we are at the zoo which we both love on nice sunny days. his favorite are the rhinos! both bill and roscoe (which funny enough is one of his little friend's name at church!). we have to walk by them at least 3 x on every visit..."hi roscoe how are you? see you later rhino roscoe." what a little personality!

our good friends the Lynes family sent us a chocolate advent calendar (it brought a lot of joy throughout the whole month!)
