He loved his birthday

Fabrice turned  9 on November 17,I believe he started counting down the days to his birthday3 weeks before everyday he asked me how long. we had asked him what he wanted for his birthday. He told us first he wanted a scooter,then I think he started thinking about ti more then he remember that when we went to Haiti in October that Kolbie and Kaleb had borrowed Payton's PSP so they had something to do on the long flights. well after a few days fabrice asked if he could play with it and he just loved it. On the last morning when we where getting them ready to go back to the orphanage Fabrice asked if he could take Dave's deodorant and the combs and his toothpaste and tooth brushes then he asked about the PSP and at first we said no but then he said I promise I will take care of it,we knew what would happen to it once he went back with it. but We could not say no. so then started telling everyone he wanted the little game he played in Haiti,so Daves family got together and bought him one,when he say it he got the biggest smile. He loved his birthday and all of his present's !! He really loved the Sprite and spicy chicken. Fabrice is very excited this week he has started taking The missionary lesson's so he can get baptized. We feel so blessed to have him in our life,I know how Fabrice came to us was meant to be. We love you so much fabrice.

What Matters is simple things

Life is about Simple Things!

This weekend we went to Daves Great Aunt's Funeral.It was a great celebration of her life,all of the speakers talked about how great her Hugs where,How she made each child and grandchild fill like they where her favorites,they also talked about how great her food was. Just all the simple things about life.There was no talk about anything Materialistic.

Last weekend we had our fall conference and  I really enjoyed the talk from President Dieter F. Uchtdorf He said in part of his talk to slow down and keep it simple.

This Morning we had fast and Testimony meeting,Fabrice leaned over to Dave and said I need to go talk and he meant it, he told Dave what he wanted to say and it was so sweet because he kept practing what he wanted to say, after he felt good about it he walked up to the Podium but someone was speaking so he sat on the bench and he looked so nervous but then it was his turn and he said what he wanted to say with such Meaning and it was so simple, the next thing you heard was lots of sniffles and smiles. Then this older gentleman felt after fabrice talk to go and bear his testimony.
He is one special spirt and he is meant to do something very special.
So when you get caught up in the worldly things remember all that matters is simple things.
