Blessing on the food

by Parker Winters

"Dear Heavenly Father,
we're thankful for this food.
Please bless it to make our bodies healthy
and please bless that the polar ice caps can stop melting
In the name of Jesus Christ Amen."

"Mom, I said that because I don't want the penguins to lose their habitats."

We're pretty sure all of this came from watching Mr. Popper's penguins.:) A pretty good movie. Loudy the penguin scared Liam though so watch out for him and keep the volume control on hand. ;)

It's Great to be 8!

Here are the results of a pre-baptism photo shoot at our house. Parker was really excited about getting baptised and couldn't sleep very well the night before because of it. :) It is hard to believe he is 8!! Slow down train!

Oh Happy Day!

I know when I am baptised,
I promise to obey,
and live all God's commandments
with happiness each day.
I know because God loves me,
His loving Son was sent.
If I forget my promise,
I know I can repent.

Parker! We are so proud of you and know that Heavenly Father is too! We love you! We hope you will always remember this day and how you felt. We are so thankful for our family and friends that were able to share this special day with us and all of those who have helped us by teaching Parker in primary. Parker is loving going to scouts and working on his Faith in God award and of course running crazy in the gym after scouts with the other boys. :)
