Mothers Day 2012

I had the best Mothers Day! I was happy and just full of love for my role as a mother. I'm really the luckiest to have the best husband and children!
So we started of our morning with breakfast tacos, that I put in the night before (crockpot) so no dishes! Then we went to our 9 o' clock church meetings. The children sang Mother I Love You! It was beautiful:) Then we came home and relaxed, we ate meat, cheese and fruit and played outside, I even took a nap outside for about 2 hours. It was great!
My favorite part was my sweet husband picking wild flowers for me so I could have a flower crown for Mothers Day. We have a tradition of corsages, but, I opted for this, this year and loved it!!
So enough about me, I have been blessed with so man many amazing examples of mothers. Starting with my own dearest. I love her so much and she truly is always there for me and always helping me do my best! She is an elect lady! My mom Maughan also, is such an amazing example of service and love! She did such a wonderful job raising her son, he is the best husband. Thank you, he is such a wonderful man.
These women both give and give and give some more. I don't know how they do it! Then my sweet sisters and close friends that are adopted sisters, cousins, all of you, you know who you are, I love you and Thank you for your inspiration and friendship! You are the best!
I really am so blessed, thanks for everything!
"Let every mother realize that she has no greater blessing than the children which have come to her as a gift from the Almighty; that she has no greater mission than to rear them in light and truth, and understanding and love; that she will have no greater happiness than to see them grow into young men and women who respect principles of virtue, who walk free from the stain of immorality and from the shame of delinquency. . . . I remind mothers everywhere of the sanctity of your calling. No other can adequately take your place. No responsibility is greater, no obligation more binding than that you rear in love and peace and integrity those whom you have brought into the world."
Gordon B. Hinckley

Last Day of Preschool

Porters last day of preschool was today and they had a bowling/pizza party at the local lanes. The boys loved it so much. It's funny the last time the boys went bowling was at Heath Kelso's birthday 2 winters ago when we were in Wenatchee, WA. The boys kept asking me why we don't go more. I just never think let's go bowling! But, it was really fun and they really had a great time!

Catch Up!

The last couple of weeks have gone by like a whirl wind! I got to take a trip to see my brothers family.I went by myself it was so much fun! I really love Florida! I got to spend some quality time with each of my loved ones down there!

Tim got another tooth pulled, and my boys got haircuts and Emmett got new glasses!

Then last week my dog had her babies! 10 of them! Matt and I had gone to the temple with Justin and Morgan and when we were on our way home the babysitter called and said we had 5 puppies! She had 10 by the end of the night!

Amelia woke up crying from her nap this morning and the boys quickly came to her rescue with cereal in hand! Such good children, I love them so much!

With the weather getting nicer, I'm trying to get more exercise and let the kids go with me so we get to go to the park and bike rides!
