I am so grateful for my family! I have been so blessed with such wonderful children! They mean so much to me! I am also grateful for the love of my life! Even if he is such a goof ball. These pictures were taken at Ross park the other day, and Boyd and his brother BJ were goofing off and took these pictures of them . They are quite the pair! There is never a dull moment with them around! I love how crazy they are!!!
Well, today I am grateful that I made it through church! I had to speak in sacrament, and then do singing time in primary. The primary bad, but I hate to speak in sacrament. I am so glad it is over with. I love my ward and am so grateful for the people in it. We have wonderful friends and neighbors who are great and so supportive. I am also so grateful for the SUNSHINE!!!! I LOVE IT....I hope it doesn't snow this week!!!
Megan came home from school today and said, "Mom, Branden told me today that he likes me. Like means love...have you ever heard of that? That is what kids now say when they love each other!"
This really made me feel old! You know how when you are 8, your parents seem so OLD! Like they have never experienced being a kid! Like when you think of your parents living in black and white, and living in the olden days. Yah, well, this is what I felt like today.
I wanted to start doing a post each Sunday about something I am grateful for. Today I feel very grateful for parents who taught me the gospel. My parents were great examples to me. The older I get, the more I appreciate my parents. I know they weren't perfect, but they were dang close. I know they really tried hard to live the gospel and be good examples for us girls. I hope I can be as good a parent to my kids as they were to me. I don't know how people cope with the loss of a loved one without the knowledge of the gospel. I know that my knowledge of the plan of Salvation has got me through these last few months. I want to thank my Mom and Dad for teaching me the gospel! I love you Mom and Dad and I can't wait for the day that we can be together forever!!!
Well, we have had quite the week (well,last two weeks). We have been redoing our upstairs. We ripped off tile, repainted, added crown molding, we're changing the fireplace, re-trimming....all the while we have had strep throat, sinus infections, ear infections, colds, sore throats, the flu and the latest....pink eye!! It has been soooo much fun. We're living in a complete mess, and everyone has been sick! I am so tired, physically and emotionally. Bella has been really fussy, probably because she is feeling my frustration, and because her ear infection was so bad, it burst! The poor baby! Aannyyywwaayy, we are hopefully on the mend, and working like crazy to be done for Easter, since we are hosting it for my family! We are crazy!! I will post pictures later of the fiasco!
I am a stay at home mom of 5. I have been married to a wonderful man for 12 years! I love to craft, scrapbook, paint, cook, create, you name it! I hope to share some of my ideas and things that I have created! I hope you enjoy!
