(stole this picture.. not actually mine.. but thinking about making something cute like this)
So.. We pretty much suck at having FHE weekly.. Mostly because Bryan works the 1-9pm shift at work.. And doing it will out him is not nearly as fun... BUT! He has had a few more day time shifts (hopefully this continues for like ever), and it's been really nice. So yesterday we talked about it, and decided he would come up with something for FHE. So we were saying opening prayer.. And we decided to first have a lesson in being reverent during prayer due to Emily and Hannah being a little silly during prayer. So we had the lesson.. .And Emily really caught on... Hannah understands it mostly too! Anyways after the lesson we played a game bryan kinda made up. We each took a turn acting like an animal and then the rest of the family had to guess it. It turned out to be HILARIOUSLY funny.. At first Hannah was pretty nervous, she isn't use to doing things without Emily and she had to stand infront of all of us (the three of us) and act out an animal. After a few stage fright tries I told her that she need to at least get up infront of us and then she could sit down.. Well.. It started becoming really fun.. And Hannah couldn't help but start acting like the animals she could think of.. She went back and forth from a dog and a cat.. and then decided to also try being a seagull.. It was the cutest thing... I just love my family.. And I'm learning more and more how much I love them... and truly enjoy being a part of our family! So.. I think we need to do FHE more often.. I wouldn't doubt that Emily and Hannah ask to do it tomorrow night again.. it was just soo much fun!!
Bryan and Melissa have been married for 7 years. The story of how we became is great. Bryan said "I'm going to marry you, Melissa." Melissa said, "I don't think so." And here we are more then seven years later. We have three beautiful little girls and one handsome little dude. We just moved to Idaho. Bryan is working so Melissa can stay at home. Melissa is enjoying being a stay at home mom. We've been homeschooling our kids since June of 2010. We have our ups and downs, but are so grateful for everything we have. Life is really good. Even on stressful, rainy, sleepless days. We really love our cute little family. And can't wait to see it grow and grow.
