1: Josh forgot to do something and he said, "Man, I'm an idiot!" Dallen piped in, "Dad, you shouldn't have said that or you're not going to go to the good heaven with me, mom, Cali, and Josie!" | "Mom, I wish I could be the Savior." "Why Dallen?" "I don't know. Actually, I wish I could be the Holy Ghost because Ghosteses are cool!"

4: Draper Temple Open House | Tonight I lied down next to Dallen and asked him if he wanted to know why I loved him. He got a huge grin and his face and said, "Yes!" I told him how I loved how he's so responsible, a great brother to his sisters, so helpful, such a great reader, friendly to everyone, always surprising me with his cleaning, how he's trying to be like Jesus, and how he says such wonderful prayers. During this time, he pulled up his pajama top and had me tickle his belly. He loves that. He soaked in everything I said. He really is an angel sent from above and I'm so grateful for him!

18: Aunt Tiff took us to the Fire Station! | “Will I have faith when I grow up? Enough to see Jesus? I want to be a prophet when I grow up. Oh wait, nevermind. I forgot I want to be a Policeman.” Dallen, you can be a policeman and the prophet. “But what would I do if there was an emergency on Sunday? Where would I park my police car and how would I change my clothes fast?”

25: Dallen is so helpful! He helps me clean around the house, he is super responsible, he even helps me take care of Josie. The other day he changed her diaper without any help and without being asked. He just knew she needed her diaper changed so he went and did it. What kid does that? Dallen loves to surprise me! Just yesterday he went into my room and bathroom and totally cleaned things up. When he was done he came and got me, asked me to close my eyes, and didn't let me open then until he had lead me into my room. I love his surprises, they rock!
27: Trick or Treat. Be so sweet. Give me something good to eat.
30: Polar Express! | This is the
32: While watching our family movie on Christmas eve, Dallen says, "We've got to go to bed, Santa's coming!" He was so concerned. He wanted to go to bed so bad that he passed up apples and books and me "sleeping" with him! This is a first! Dallen hates missing out on any part of his bedtime routine. Dallen didn't even want his Christmas lights in his bedroom on in fear that Santa would think that he was still awake. Dallen even said to Josh, "Dad, you've got to put the fire out so that Santa doesn't get burned!"
