I'll be home for Christmas

Sam's little brother is getting married December 17th! I really wanted to go but if I go so do 3 kids. We weren't sure how we were going to get Sam out there but he had to go. With plane tickets at $400, it was going to be a sacrifice to get him out there. Well Sam's family wanted us ALL out there but I wasn't willing to take any of their money so we could go. I am not about to take some kids Christmas away! How selfish would that make me. Anyway, so we have been praying for a way for us all to make it. Well one of Sam's friends is moving to Arizona and needed to take the BAR out there. He asked Sam if he could buy some of his Bar course books. They were $3000 but we sold them to his friend for $1000. Almost exactly what we needed to make the trip out there. We will have to find about another $300 but that is cheaper than us just flying Sam out! We are so lucky and blessed. We will be able to go to Jason's wedding AND stay for Christmas! COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS, NAME THEM ONE BY ONE!

That's what we can expect when we live righteously, pay our tithing and lay our righteous desires at the Lord's feet in prayer. I am so glad you get to go. I really, truly am. It seems I remember someone saying they would never fly with three babies again, but I guess you decided Jason is worth it!!! I am happy for all of you, Love, Mommas

That is awesome! Good thing your kids are so young and close in age so you only have to pay for 1 of them!

Awesome! So Jason is not supposed to be getting married! Isn't he too young. Like in High school still? And I wanted him to marry my sister dang it. No really that is fantastic he is getting married and that you all get to be there.
