Where was I?

While I was in the MTC one of my teachers showed a video of Elder Jeffery R Holland. His words touched me and during my initial weeks in Cabo Verde, they made the difference. Since then I have found his words and messages of special comfort.
While browsing the net today I watched a Mormon Message based on a talk he gave at the April 2009 general conference. I then watched that very talk. I don't remember hearing this talk before, where was I when he originally gave it ? How powerful his testimony of Christ is, how tender his feelings and emotions are. How comforting the message is and how inspiring. Here it is. Watch it. You'll be glad you did, I am.

Move it

Cassidy really likes the movie Madagascar, or the 'lion movie' as she calls it. I didn't realize how much until about a week ago when Joe and I were sitting on the couch after the girls were down and we hear her start singing, 'i like to move it move, i like to move it move it...'. It was so cute. She's done it a few times since then and it's funny every time. I especially like it when she changes her voice while singing, going deep and then going high.
I really like going to Target and scoping out the baby and kid sections, you never know what amazing deal you will find, if any. This last time, I found something I've been wanting for a few years now, a Moby wrap. All it is is a LONG length of fabric that you wrap around you in different ways to carry your baby. Not wanting to spend the $40 they cost, I actually tried to make one after Cassidy was born, but I couldn't find the right material. Well, last week I went to Target and there was one on the end cap with a clearance tag on it because it was an online purchase that someone returned to the store. Guess how much?? $10.06!!!! Of course I bought it, of course I am using right now. Julia wasn't hip on it when I tried it on for the first time yesterday, but today was/is wonderful. She's been asleep for almost an hour, and the wrap is super comfy. No backache or shoulder issues. I LOVE it! I wish I'd had one with the other girls. The only draw back is it is black and thick, so in the sun it might get uncomfortable, but being in the shade is better anyway. So it's all good. I have had so many great purchases from the clearance area at Target.
