I created this blog when my sweet little girl, Kristen, was diagnosed with cancer, for the third time. After fighting for almost 3 years Kristen was called home to that same God who gave her life. I've contemplated on many occasions rather I should quit this blog or not. Each time I am inspired that I should not. One of my favorite quotes comes from Neal A. Maxwell- "Those who "plow in hope" not only understand the law of the harvest but they also understand what growing seasons are all about. True, those with genuine hope may see their proximate circumstances shaken like a kaleidoscope at times, yet with the "Eye of faith" they still see divine design." Kristen blessed lives and continues to do so. Her light continues to shine. As for me, I continue to "plow in hope" knowing well that Kristen is mine for eternity. Families can be together forever! This I know. Our family continues to live and to love and this is our story...

more festival

We are still busy making items for the Festival of Trees.
I love that I get to think about and prepare for Christmas all year long
All of my girls have been busy helping. 
Kim has made the most adorable peg people ever.
Katy has been making hair bows and worry dolls.
Kamie has been making earrings.
Lisa has been working on some darling hats.
I've been working on some fabric paper dolls.
We still have much more to do, but we love it.
We feel blessed to be part of such a great organization.

For 42 years, the Festival of Trees has been a 
“Gift of Love” to children at Primary Children's Medical Center.  
The Festival is organized by a volunteer board of 85 women who enlist time and talents from thousands of individuals, organizations, businesses, and families throughout Utah.  Over $30.8 million has been raised for children at Primary Children’s Medical Center through the Festival since 1971, with $1,655,931.40 raised in 2011.
