I've been thinking about "the Letter" that we are all supposed to write and wanted to share this scripture reference with you D&C 123. Joseph Smith is telling the saints to write about the things that have happened to them so that there will be a record and so that others won't be led astray as to what really happened to the saints. It's very enlightening. Hope it will help you with your writing. I especially like verse 17 Therefore, dearly beloved brethren, let us cheerfully do all things that lie in our power; and then may we stand still, with the utmost assurance, to see the salvation of God, and for his arm to be revealed. But on a more fun note. We were still down for Sun lunch last week. All together as a fam, having nice dinner conversation when the milk and food started flying. Sum filled her plate completely full of ranch dressing. ALOT of dressing. Eric wasn't too happy about that but just as he was cleaning up that mess, his phone rang. While he was on the phone, Lexi split her choc milk into the gravy which she had just finished making (she made it herself). She burst into tears. I told her it would be ok and just stirred in the milk into the gravy. While Lex was getting a towel to clean up, Bode knocked over his choc milk. It went everywhere. We try to use our "special" dishes on Sunday including our "wine glasses". By this time Eric had gotten off the phone and sat down in the milk that had dripped onto his chair. Needless to say, we don't get to use the wine glasses any more. We are lucky that they weren't all broken and thrown into the garbage. Summer can't pour her own dressing anymore-more work for me. And I don't know that we will have another lunch TOGETHER again. Isn't it funny how we are supposed to do these things together like dinner and FHE and scripture study and yet sometimes it seems like it is thw worst time because of things like this. We end up yelling at each other instead of loving the time together. It's hard to be a parent. But I am so glad that I get the chance to be a parent and that my kids are so forgiving.

I feel your pain. And they love to use the nice china, not that my china is very nice. I always like reading what is going on up there.
