Treasure the doing a little more
and the getting done a little less.

Lucy was so much fun this past Christmas season. She loved every minute of the shiny lights, Christmas trees, presents etc.
One of my favorite things we did this year was a chain countdown for Christmas that Lucy made at school. She was so excited each morning to take off a chain link and count the remaining links until Christmas.
Lucy also loved making this festive and yummy sugar cone Christmas tree at preschool.
There is nothing quite like having a young child in the house at Christmas time.
"If you are still in the process of raising children, be aware that the tiny fingerprints that show up on almost every newly cleaned surface, the toys scattered about the house, the piles and piles of laundry to be tackled will disappear all too soon and that you will—to your surprise—miss them profoundly." -President Thomas S Monson
Sisters, there is something inspiring and sublime about the little forget-me-not flower. I hope it will be a symbol of the little things that make your lives joyful and sweet. Please never forget that you must be patient and compassionate with yourselves, that some sacrifices are better than others, that you need not wait for a golden ticket to be happy. Please never forget that the “why” of the gospel of Jesus Christ will inspire and uplift you. And never forget that your Heavenly Father knows, loves, and cherishes you.—President Dieter F. Uchtdorf
