Tony Says

While playing alone in his room, Tony hears Roobin barking outside.
"Roobin, arrrrrg. No no barking!"

Looking for Monkey
"Yar you Monkey? Monkey? Ooohh nooo."

He likes peanut butter, and he likes to say it really fast and really loud
"pahbeeta, pabeeta, pa pa pa pa pabeeta PA-BEE-TAAA!"

Recommended Reading

I was reading in the December issue of the Ensign and I thought this one article was particularly poignant. Since I want everyone I know to read it, and this blog is the closest thing I have to a mountain top, I figured I'd shout it from here...

The article is titled The Prince of Glory, and it's by Elder Bruce D. Porter. I tried to write out all I thought and felt as I read it, but I wasn't able to do it justice. Instead, I will simply say that the Spirit touched my heart and I want to be a better person; a person deserving of the love so freely given me from my Savior, Jesus Christ.

You can read the article here:

I swear, I'm still here

("here" having recently become Austin, by the way!) We're in the midst of a whirlwind; we had 10 days between getting home from India and moving here to Texas, and we're currently staying in a hotel -thankfully on the VA's dime- while we hope and pray for a tenent to rent our house. India was amazing, and hopefully I'll have some time soon to post about it. Hope you all are well, and happy December!
