Christmas Card 2021

The biggest announcement is that we are moving back to Utah in June 2022. Dallin matched on December 15 with the Neonatology program at the University of Utah. He will be working as a fellow in the NICU at Primary Children’s hospital in Salt Lake City, Utah. I am so proud of Dallin for getting a match and fulfilling his dream of becoming a neonatologist. It is a competitive specialty with each program only accepting about two fellows a year. I really did not want to leave Indiana and we even considered getting a general pediatrician job because I knew going through the match again meant slim chances of staying. We cannot deny that we felt guided by the Spirit that we should apply to the match again. 😱 We saw so many miracles as Dallin submitted his application and interviewed for the programs. We continue to see miracles as we plan for our move. I am so grateful we matched in Utah where we have family and friends and not some random place off the map. I am going to make the next six months in Indiana the best ever because I absolutely adore this place and all the people here! God has a plan for our family and we feel peace forward.

Micah got on the school’s swim team this year and he has been getting so much better with his strokes. He has been reading all the Warrior books and enjoys playing video games and programming his Arduino.

Quentin chose to be baptized in The Church of Jesus Christ this year when we were visiting Utah for a family reunion during the summer. He also joined the town’s swim club that meets the same time as Micah’s swim team.

Emily started Kindergarten and has made so many friends! She loves going to school after staying home for preschool because of the pandemic. She loves art and loves to draw a bunch of pictures!

Jacob started preschool this year. He gets to ride on a “big bus.” It was a rough start but now he asks me when winter break is over so he can go back to school.

Cumorah climbs a lot. She is amazing at singing. Her verbal skills as a two-year-old is just incredible. She can sing about 50 songs from memory.

Lily Mei was born this year. She was 6lbs 7oz at birth. Labor was a lot harder than usual!!! She was sunny side up and they lost my first Covid test so I had to wait 7 hours for a second Covid test before they broke my water! So yeah extra laboring time because of a lost covid test but the recovery has been really good. She is our first colicky baby and needs lots of love from us.

Baby’s Name

Her name is Cumorah. She is named after the Hill Cumorah in Palmyra, NY. The reason why this hill is significant to the members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is that it is the place where The Book of Mormon was discovered. The Book of Mormon is a history that tells of a family from Jerusalem who came to the Americas and their struggles. The book tells how this family overcame hard times by following the teachings of Jesus Christ. We read this book to help us get closer to God and to overcome our own struggles.

Back-to-School!

I woke up early to make cinnamon rolls to celebrate the first day of school but they were too excited and didn’t eat much of it. I hope they won’t be starving today but at least they drank their milk! Micah = 3rd Grade. Quentin = 1st Grade. Emily = A wannabee kindergartener but she’s only 3 years old. She spent 10 minutes crying at the bus stop after all the kids got on and left. She got her backpack and insisted I pack her a lunch. Poor girl, she would have snuck on the bus if I let her.

4th Child Pretending to be Only Child

50046926_10155648054406058_7672006197154676736_o

I am pretending to only have 1 child today while the older kids are at their cousin’s house and daddy is at his interview. Time goes by a lot slower with just 1 kid because he needs to be entertained all the time. I have gotten a lot of “Is this your first?” 😂 and “He is so cute!” Jakey doesn’t get this much attention when all his siblings are around. I usually just get “Wow, your hands are full!” or “Are these all yours?” 😂 I wonder what people would say if I told them he’s the 4th child?!

Cute Santa

We had a cute professional Santa come to our Christmas party so I had to take advantage of the moment to take some cute pictures of my kids!

Santa with the littlest one:

Micah was telling Santa he wanted a robot!

Quentin says he wants a Star Wars lego set.

Emily didn’t care for Santa at all! She insisted on wearing her favorite Halloween skirt. She was born in October so I guess she must like Halloween more than Christmas?

Our General Conference Hike

20141004-IMG_5212

The week before General Conference I’m usually feeling really down and I know it’s just Satan trying to make me sad right before a really spiritual General Conference.

General Conference is always a breath of fresh air for me!

Dallin’s research lab was going on a hike on Saturday morning of General Conference. At first Dallin really didn’t want to go and miss conference but then we decided to take a radio up the canyon.

It worked out great! We got to listen to conference and we got to participate in his lab hike. Here’s me with a little handheld radio we borrowed from our neighbors.

Micah, who just turned 3, walked 2 miles by himself! I was impressed.

During the hike I was surprise to hear the language of Cantonese being broadcast on the radio!!! I got so excited. I grew up speaking Cantonese and I thought it was so cool that the first foreign language talk was in Cantonese by Elder Chi Hong Wong.

There were so many good talks during conference!!  I can’t wait to read all of them over the next six months.

Another great talk was by Elder Carlos A. Godoy, who spoke in Portuguese, called The Lord Has a Plan for Us. My husband speaks Portugues so it was one of his favorites too.

Elder Godoy asked us a question about our patriarchal blessings: “If we continue to live as we are living, will the promised blessings be fulfilled?”

He concluded by saying:

We are children of Almighty God. He is our Father, He loves us, and He has a plan for us. We are not here in this life just to waste our time, grow old, and die. God wants us to grow and achieve our potential.

In the words of President Thomas S. Monson: “Each of you, single or married, regardless of age, has the opportunity to learn and to grow. Expand your knowledge, both intellectual and spiritual, to the full stature of your divine potential”

This talk was very inspiring to me because I felt like I wasn’t living up to my full potential nor trying to achieve all the promised blessings in my patriarchal blessing.

The main reason why I don’t think I’m living up to my patriarchal blessing potential is because I have no idea where my patriarchal blessing is! I need to request a new copy!

What did you learn from General Conference?
