Isn't this the time you wait for all day. When everyone is content and happy? I put Sawyer in the bed so I could finish up some things and the boys crawled in bed next to her. They wanted to snuggle. They were all watching T.V., even her! Could my three kids look any more alike?!

Sweet Kisses

Sawyer is just learning how to kiss! Mouth open and everything! There is just something about Daddy's and daughters that make your heart melt!

Gordon B Hinckley

Wow I think I'm a little shocked to hear of our Prophets death. I'm truly a believer of him. He is an amazing person with such an amazing attitude. I'm so happy that he gets to return to our Heavenly Father, and to his wife and all his loved ones. I would love to see that reunion! Imagine the party that is happening for this great man!

So I'm getting ready today, and all I can hear is Mack giggling. I know that, that sound can only mean one thing coming from Mack...trouble. I went to check out what he was doing, and this is what I found. He has this major fascination with spiderman. If you ask him his name most of the time he'll say ...umm... spiderman. I guess hes hoping that she'll have the same fascination. He would leave it on till she started to fuss, then yank it off and laugh and laugh.
Heaven help me, I hope that she makes it!

When I was growing up my little sister and I would have sleepovers with each other. Basically this meant that one of us would sleep in the others bed with them. I've tried to convince my kids that this is a fun idea, only because we want them to share a room. So we always try to get Mack to sleep in Haydens room because he has a queen size bed. But after putting Mack back in Haydens room least 5 times he eventually will climb in his own bed and finally go to sleep. We tried again last night and he actually fell asleep in there. When I went to check on them before I went to bed I noticed that they had fallen asleep with their arms interlocked. Its so nice to see a real peaceful moment between them!

Just Venting

Ok so growing up, I did alot, I mean alot of babysitting. My senior year of High School I nannied for a lady who did hair, and I went to her house everyday, for many of hours. I LOVED babysitting, especially for certain families around the neighborhood. Now I'm not that old but I remember getting payed next to nothing to babysit. One lady paid me about 1.50 per child, so after babysitting for like 6 hours I made about 10 bucks. Cheap?! Very! But nowadays that would not fly.
One of the mistakes I've made as a Mom(one of the many mistakes I've made), is not establishing a relationship with any of the young girls in our neighborhood. I generally dont like to put people out, and that is exactly how I feel when I call someone to tend for us. Now I know that it could be that our kids are a little crazy, and girls dont want to tend them, or it could be that kids get what they want anyway so why have to earn money. Oh well, I have to take and equity line out on my house just to be able to afford to pay them anyway!
My second gripe is I dont expect that they should clean my house. I just dont want to come home to a disaster! Maybe they could just clean up the mess that they made. One of the times I left my kids I swear to you they must have had a food fight, and every toy was out. She had put Mack to bed with a poopy diaper, and didn't put his jammies on, she left him in his denim jeans!
Is it just me or am I asking to much. I guess I feel like I tried just a little harder to please! I dont mean to be rude but I would love to feel like I could call someone, and know that that not only will my house stay intack, but my kids will be well taken care off. Oh wait and that they would appreciate the 5 or so dollars that I pay them!

Gift from Heaven

We had a great day today! We blessed Sawyer and Im sure she wondered what the heck was going on, because she screamed the entire blessing. Oh well it was worth it! Its funny that it only takes little reminders to help us realize how special kids really are! I know how blessed I really am to have 3 great kids!
