my favorite quote

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant,
gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously
give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.

It all started the weekend before christmas. We helped our friends, Donald & Tiffany jack, move out of their apartment :( After we finished I guess they just didn't want to say goodbye yet (j/k), so they invited us to tiffany's home in Burley Idaho. After hearing so much about Burley, We finally got to experience it (including the Lee's furniture store)! Tiffany has a wonderful family, they welcomed us into their home as if we were part of the fam. We had great fun. We even got Tiff to take some family photos of us, in their back yard, by the Snake River.

Emma met a nephew and we learned that she is not very shy. As Hall & Oates would sing she's a maneater.J/K

Christmas Eve was a lot of fun. We spent the time here in rexburg. It was a little sad to be by ourselves, but we didn't spend all of it alone.
Christmas day we went over to the Jensen's (Beau's in-laws), we had dinner with them and daniel played WII golf all day long. Beau made Cinnamon Rolls that were wonderful, they were very close to being as good as dads! just joking beau, they were great (just like Pa's). Christmas night we played Sequence (by the way I highly recommend this game to everyone) with Beau and Shantel until 2 a.m. in the morning. This was the start of many nights of Sequence with my family. Somehow a rivalry was started and we played this game about every other night over the holiday's.
Emma got a jumper for christmas and Daniel and I got a lot of fun stuff too.

The BEST THING THING TO HAPPEN BY FAR THIS CHRISTMAS WAS WHEN KRISTAN HAD THEIR LITTLE BOY, LINCOLN A WEEK BEFORE HER DUE DATE AND A DAY BEFORE HER SCHEDULED CESAREAN. We went to see them in Provo a few days after he was born. He is so cute. We could tell that Lincoln's Daddy was so excited to have a boy.

Mom and Dad Jardine came to stay with us last weekend. We went to see August Rush which was Very Good! We also did some shopping and best of all we went to the Rexburg Temple Open house. It is as beautiful inside as it is out. One of my teachers painted a couple of the rooms in the Temple. It was a neat experience to take Emma with us.
That weekend was a blast.
