Last weekend we held our annual family work day at the cabin. Raking pine needles, washing windows, dusting the logs from top to bottom and chopping wood.
President Henry B. Eyring: "You hold in your hands the happiness of more people than you can imagine."
I always feel so happy when my family works together, put their own wants aside and help each other....we can do so much to add to others happiness, more than we know.
PGE cut down a very large pine tree that had died....part of the work day was cutting that tree up for firewood.
Dusting from top to bottom
- While at the cabin for the work day- we celebrated Danny's birthday a little early....Carlee made papa a birthday outfit. (cute)
2. Cole picking up pine-cones....kind of like an Easter egg hunt
3. Carlee exploring the forest and the fallen tree.
Cleaning windows. Thanks Libby and girls.

After lunch we planned to have a little healthy family competition. "How many strikes of an ax will it take to break the log into pieces of firewood that will fit in the stove?"
Kent went first- Denver then Sam
Sam first place 18 hits- Denver close second and Kent an honest third. (smile....Kent always makes us smile)
and Lincoln just took in all the craziness of his first cabin work day.
So very thankful for this family and the way they work together. Happy Day
Kent wins the points for coming all the way from Utah for the work day. He stayed the rest of the weekend with us. Happy Day
