Twelve Drummers Drumming

5 January 2016

The Twelfth Day of Christmas

The twelve drummers drumming represent the twelve points of belief in The Apostles’ Creed. 1) I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth. 2) I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord. 3) He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. 4) He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended into hell [the grave]. 5) On the third day he rose again. He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father. 6) He will come again to judge the living and the dead. 7) I believe in the Holy Spirit, 8) the holy catholic Church [catholic here is a term from old Greek meaning the universal Christian church], 9) the communion of saints, 10) the forgiveness of sins, 11) the resurrection of the body, 12) and life everlasting.

 After I took my nieces to school and napped in bed with Chris for a couple more hours, I did yoga! Yay! Last year I did a 30 Days of Yoga (with Yoga With Adriene) and it was so good. This year, Adriene is doing a free yoga camp! So I hopped on that bandwagon and am working my way through it. I started a few days late, but I signed up for the email list and they’re pretty motivating and help keep me on track. So here’s a blurry yoga selfie. 

I was responsible for Edel’s play time this “morning” too, and finally made it outside about 2:30 pm, just before I had to go pick up the girls from school. Okay, this weather… what is this?! It’s january! Not summer.  


I borrowed Mom’s car and she walked home from school, along with the girls, because I had a yearly ward council planning meeting to go to. My mom is super great. She’s such a peach, and I hope she realizes she’s great. Thanks for reading my blog, Mom! <3 :)

So… institute has been happening here. I felt the Chris and I needed to go tonight, and we did, and it was really good. I’m so glad we went. I learned about Jesus and temple covenants, and Christ’s invitation to follow him. The words “Come, Follow Me” are more real to me now.

Husband and I are working on improving our sleeping schedule. Going to bed before 3 am and waking up before 11 am. :) It’s going well. Chris is pretty committed to waking earlier and getting to work earlier. I’m supportive and know it’ll benefit us both.

Oh.. here’s our bed. Looks like we’re a co-sleeping family hahaha.


Also, a highlight of my day was receiving a bunch of funny snaps from my cousin’s little daughter. Thanks, Cali!
