tidbits of love

Our February scripture study theme was on charity: the pure love of Christ. Every evening we studied a different scripture with the focus being love and charity. And then we would take turns picking somebody that we loved and everybody in the family would say one thing that they loved about that person. It was such a fun thing to hear not only who the kids picked, but also to hear why they loved them. I want to do it again because February just doesn't have enough days in it to say something about everybody we love, but this is our February 2014 start:

Thank you for that! When we were in California Gavin asked why we always go to California for vacation. I told him there is lots to do there. He asked why we don't go to Idaho for vacation. I told him it was because Idaho is boring. He said, "No it isn't, it has uncle Spencer. He is the best entertainment in Idaho!" I agree. We love all of you!
