Mother

“Motherhood is a choice you make everyday to put someone else’s happiness and well being ahead of your own.  To teach the hard lessons, to do the right thing even when your not sure what the right thing is….and to forgive yourself over and over again for doing everything wrong.”  –Donna Bell

Chapman’s came into town so we did the temple square lights as well as a great sledding hill to pass the time and enjoy the cold snowy weather.

Christmas 2013

Posted by on Dec 25, 2013 in Mother | 0 comments

We had a very relaxed simple and quiet Christmas. Monica and Jace were here to celebrate with us and it was great having them be here. They were great Santa helpers.

We got each of the kids google tablets for the price of one IPad mini so we figured that was the best route to go and they can each have a reader.

The sweet thing about them is that we have all the control as parents what they can do, how much time, etc which I love because apple doesn’t have that surprisingly.

The girls also got a guitar and ukelele. The boys bley blades and bionic blocks. No Legos this year they already have enough.

I got a blendtec twister jar to make my own butters im so excited! Also lots of workout clothes that i bought myself.

Trent got clothes as well and it was a very simple one for him but he didn’t mind.

Scripture reading owls

Posted by on Dec 23, 2013 in Mother | 0 comments

My niece got a gift at our family gift exchange this year made by my cousin and all of us fell in love with it that we got together and had a sewing day to make them.

We made our own template of the owl and away we sewed. I used coordinating fat quarters I already had in my fabric drawer so it turned out perfectly.

Each of the kids got one and will sit on their bed as a reminder to read each night in the Book of Mormon.

Nativity scene and FHE with Boyd’s

This Christmas season we decided on nativity scenes instead of gingerbread houses. We had my friend Eleah Boyd and her children over for FHE and did this for an activity. It was a perfect spiritual night.

Our neighborhood invites two streets to participate in a Christmas progressive dinner and this year I was able to host the soup segment of the dinner so here is a picture of some of the group. Not youngins over here on our two streets so it was nice to get to know more of the older neighbors.
