"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

Halloween... Holden style..........

I had a great post written in my head at about 3am this morning as I was rocking a fussy baby and tending to some over sugar induced children... last night was rough. I decided if given the choice of a vacation or sleep that sleep would win... I honestly can't remember the last time I slept all night.. :) Anyway by the time I woke up for about the 40 time this morning I had forgotten everything inspiring/cute/faithful that I wanted to say.. o well.. there is always tomorrow :)

They look great! Makenna looks so grown up as the Rodeo Queen...which by the way I love that she chose that as her costume! Your little princesses are adorable! And I could just snuggle up to your little bear! How fun! It sounds like you had a fantastic halloween!
