As I was taking this picture for today's topic...
I caught sight of something else and it reminded me of the lesson a gave to the primary kids on Sunday.
The lesson was built around John 8:12 which says:
“I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness..."
I suppose there are complicated and deep discussions about why Jesus is referred to as the 'light' but the primary kid level way that I explained it was by blindfolding a girl and asking her to put some cards in the correct order.
Of course she couldn't do it and we had a discussion about how following Gods plan for us is like having a light to follow in a dark world... Without Him, we would probably feel lost and discouraged about life.
That's why I took this picture...

We visited Salt Lake Temple square tonight. We almost didn't go because it was a little bit rainy but I'm glad we went for a little while.
The reason I'm choosing this picture for this theme is because of what the temple represents to me.
Being with the people that are the most important to me forever.
Mostly my husband.
I love my kids and they are my #1 priority right now but one day they will grow up and have families of their own. They will always be a part of my family but one day it will just be Sam and I again... Forever.
And that's a happily ever after story.

Again with my un-creativeness.
Today's theme is:
I am so busy that I don't have time to set up something new or special for this challenge so I am just taking pictures of whatever I already have going on.
Tonight is our church Christmas party and I spent part of the morning making rolls for it.
So there you go.
They are YUM though.
Not to brag or anything...
Okay. I'm bragging.
John ate one and told me that they 'were seriously the best rolls he had ever tasted'.
He was hungry at the time but I think it still counts! :)

I know that this is SO uncreative but I am SO super busy these last few days and I only see it getting more busy in the next few days.
Turned black and white.

I spend a lot of time in my 'office'. And now that I've deleted my Facebook account, the time is mostly productive.
(Picture editing. Church primary work. Family History. Bills. Etc.)
I call it my office but it's really just a desk/computer area in the corner of the living room.
I have it there on purpose though.
I could have found space in another room but I knew that I would spend a lot of time on the computer and I wanted to be in a place where I could be close to the kids and whatever we had going on.
My favorite thing is that the kids seems to like having me close.
It's common for me to be at my desk and one the kids to bring something (Train tracks. Legos. Army Guys.) out of their room to play with on the floor next to my desk.
Today Jacob brought a few legos and set them up on the corner of my desk.
It was a perfect setup for today's theme:

ON THE SHELF
And all I could think was 'Elf on the Shelf'.
To make it a little more challenging I decided to try a little experiment.
First picture was to get our Elf on the Shelf with a normal bokeh back drop and the next I made the background lights look star-like or twinkly.
I can't decide which one I like better.
