Prayer Sandal

Cutest thing ever...
I just bought the boys new sandals and one of them went missing. I looked all over the house. In the trash can, the vase, under the couch in my closet, in the garage, all over the boys room, etc. Well after Michael got in on the search and after 10 minutes of no success, Max says, "We should say a prayer because when you lose something you should say a prayer so you can find it." Michael and I looked at each other with surprise... "Where did he hear that?"
So we knelt down and Max said a prayer:
"Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for this day. I wish we can find Levi's shoe (choked up). Amen." Then he proceeds to wipe his tears away.
We had no luck last night finding the sandal, but we told Max that we know Heavenly Father will help us find it soon. We asked him where he learned to say a prayer when he loses something.
Did he learn it in his Sunbeam class? Sacrament meeting?
He insists that no one taught him and that he just knew it by himself. Who knows.

This morning I started looking for it again because I wanted Levi to wear it to a birthday party we're going to today. Max said we should pray again. I thought to myself, maybe we haven't found it because I didn't have the faith Max had the first time.
It's a shoe. Who says a prayer to find a stinkin' shoe that they don't really need in the first place? A 3 year old boy of course.
So we prayed again and this time, I said the prayer. Afterwards, I stood up to continue searching. The first thing I did was open up the boys' hat drawer, lift up a hat and what do you know! The sandal.
I know I already looked there last night. Must have just missed it.
I've heard so many stories in sacrament meeting and other classes where people prayed to find keys or other lost objects. Honestly and guiltily, I thought it was silly to "bother" God with such minuscule things. I've felt this way up to this point. This morning.
Maybe it's just a silly little sandal, but really, will God be upset with us if we prayed for something so small? I don't think so. It's not wrong to have faith that He will help us in any situation that we ask of Him... as long as we have faith. We can go to Him for anything. Big or small.
Wow, who knew your 3 year could teach you such a big lesson? Love this guy.

Fun trip to the Desert

The boys and I took a fun trip to the desert to visit Aya (Soin) and Clementina. On the way, we stopped by my cousin, Breeana's house to see her new little angel, Kai. She just had her third boy! We need to start a basketball team or something with all these boys in the family! I love it!

Bree loves my pies, so I made one to take to her. It was apple strawberry crumb and not too shabby. Bree loved it.
The boys had a blast together! They don't see each other very often and didn't waste valuable playing time the moment we stepped in the door until we had to leave.
We had fun with Soin and Celementine. My mom asked us to make empanadas for a potluck at work she was going to. Soin and I don't like to turn down opportunities to bake together, so here's the final product. They were delicious and a big hit at the potluck.
We took the kiddies to the Living Desert and they loved it. It's so fun to see our babies together. Once upon a time, Soin and I were this small and doing fun things together.
We ended our trip with dinner in jammies at Mc D's. We love us some Mickey D's!

7 months

I'm already seven months pregnant! It's hard to believe that we're gonna have our third baby boy soon. I know it will be loud, crazy, and fun around here in a few months and I'm excited.

We have a few names in mind.
Let us know which you like best.
