We had several of our chickens killed. I decided to get a wildlife camera just to see what might have taken our chickens. I set the camera up in a few different places and only got kids and cats. Then I put the camera in one of the groves of trees. I got squirrels, deer and these guys.
I just watched a video online and it really hit me on how to find happiness in this life. In the video Calyann referred to a scripture:
and he inviteth them all to come unto him and partake of his goodness; and he denieth none that come unto him, black and white, bond and free, male and female; and he remembereth the heathen; and all are alike unto God, both Jew and Gentile.Book of Mormon: 2 Nephi 26:33
Calyann said pointed out that no matter what you do or who you are God (Heavenly Father) will always love you and always be there for you.
In the video Calyann said to read a chapter or two in the Book of Mormon and it will bring happiness to your life. I know that when I need happiness on my life simply reading the Book of Mormon will bring happiness to you too. The wonderful thing is that the Book of Mormon is available online and you can read it anytime at : https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/study/scriptures/bofm
Here is the video to see how the Book of Mormon helped Calyann find happiness:
Alyxibeth was jumping on the trampoline and John came from behind and “stole her bounce.” Alyxibeth collapsed and said she heard a snap in her leg. We went out to the and she was cradling her leg. Amie called Jacob and he came over and put a splint on her leg. We took her to the ER the next morning for X-rays and a splint. We have an appointment on Monday for her cast.
I started playing around with iMovie on my iPad. This is my third trailer. I am enjoying how easy it is to make a fun little movie of an adventure that we went on. This is from a hike that we took in early March a few days before the lockdown began.
Last night we went for a walk at Mary‘s River Park in Philomath. It was a beautiful evening and the kids really enjoyed getting out to play.
James, Daniel and I went to Aumsville and picked up Emma. We wanted to go for a hike at Silver Falls. It is an amazing hike through a rain forest with beautiful waterfalls. I took my GoPro and made a video.
I bought a GoPro for my 49th Birthday. I wanted to do a sunset time lapse. This is my first one. I like how it turned out. Now I want to tweak the settings and try it again.
Here in Oregon we have a beautiful yard and this month all sorts of beautiful flowers started blooming. This is a video tour on March 3rd that I took to show off all the flowers in the yard.
It was a wonderful Christmas morning. (I liked that the children let me sleep until 5:00, they had been up for two hours already)
One of our Christmas traditions is making gingerbread houses. For the last couple of years we have done it with graham crackers. It is a lot less work and still just as much fun. Here are some pictures from this year.
