One of my goals for this year has been to fill our food room with food storage. Starting out small and simple I thought it would take me awhile to fill the shelves and especially with the amount of money we have budgeted every week, it was close to impossible to buy a little extra to store. But with a little faith, I wrote down my goal, started searching the LDS websites for ideas on food storage, looked for money saving tips, started using coupons and sure enough my shelves are filled and spilling over. I went to the store and of course to Costco for milk and butter and my total bill for this weeks' groceries and some items for storage was $58.00! I still can't believe it. It's like the Lord knows what he's talking about when He tells his Prophets to tell his people to establish a food storage. We have been truly blessed in this area of our lives. I now have a greater testimony of following the Prophets.

Porch Buddies

We are porch buddies. He'd rather sit by me and watch the kids play than go play with the kids. It's very flattering. And yes, that is a pot of flowers that he is holding.
