"Anyone who imagines that bliss is normal- is going to waste a lot of time running around shouting that he has been robbed. The fact is that most putts don't drop, most beef is tough, most children grow up to be just people, most successful marriages require a high degree of mutual toleration, and most jobs are more often dull than otherwise. Life is just like an old time rail journey with delays, sidetracks, smoke, dust, cinder, and jolts, interspersed occasionally by beautiful vistas and thrilling bursts of speed. The trick is to thank the Lord for letting you have the ride."---Pres. Gordon B. Hinckley
"The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one." - Elbert Hubbard

I got shopping lists... from many many kiddos......Santa wishes.........Christmas dreams.... and tried to figure out where we were going to put anything.....

McCall just laughed at us.
And I thought how cool it would be to be him! Just chubby and oblivious and cute.. and well smiling at the world!
He truly is a doll... no jealousy of his siblings... no wierdness.... no favorites...
i love it.
We looked at our lights... I want more but must be happy with what we have right?
