The kids were so excited for their dad's birthday (it was January 6th)! They had made plans a few days before to decorate after Jody left for work so he would be surprised when he got home at 3:00 in the morning=) So we cut out this Happy banner that I got from House of 3 (http://www.houseof3.com/) I just love their stuff! They also decorated our bedroom door with a bunch of different sized balloons that I cut out with the cricut and some crepe paper, I forgot to get a picture. And after the Danielle Lila and Tytus went to school I took Isaiah and Jonas to the store to get the ballons and some things for dinner. Of course the kids wanted to wake Jody up before school to give him his presents but because of his work schedule they had to wait until they got home! They also wanted to know what we were going to do for his party, and he just wanted to stay home, have dinner and play the games on the Wii with the kids. We did have lots of fun, it was a great day!
For his presents Jody got a couple of DVD's that he's been wanting. "Finding Moroni" which is done by a young film student (Dane Hurt) who follows Dr. Jerry Ainsworth and his partner Esteban Mejia through Mexico. Discover a hidden pyramid, ancient paintings of Christ in America, Golden Plates, and more evidences of the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon. http://www.findingmoroni.com/
The other on is called "Delivered by Hope" the true story of Mariama Kallon. A temple square sister missionary who also served in Kentucky with Jody, who was originally from Sierra Leone a war torn country in Africa (the place where the story for the movie "Blood Diamond" took place). The DVD tells her story of how she narrowly escaped torture by murderous rebel forces. After losing her entire family who were killed by the rebel forces she ends up finding refuge with an LDS family. After hearing about the gospel and the teachings of the restoration of all things she wanted to wear a name tag and become a missionary herself. http://deseretbook.com/Delivered-Hope-Deseret-Book-Company/i/5054180 Anyways their are both great movies and I suggest you all check them out.
