Chris was helping Alex feed the Alpaca and it was tickling her hand, her giggle is so sweet. I asked her what her favorite part of the day was and she said "I feed the cows." She was petting every animal yesterday whether it was real or bronze!

This is me with a big smile on my face tonight for the things I learned and understood better. I'm talking about the Plan of Salvation. I taught Relief Society today on the very subject and was up until 1am reading an essay by Truman G. Madsen and discussing the topic with my hubby. It was so refreshing to feel alive as I studied and really understood the doctrine better - like it started applying to my life. I was fed. And because I was nourished by the word, I was weepy through my entire lesson! Oh well, the sisters are used to it, right? My attitude towards my trials has changed, I realize that I am not yet as Job - duh! And now my "thorns" seem really insignificant! Especially when compared to other people that are really suffering right now. I've been crying as I've been reading this blog and this blog over the last few weeks. I am blessed and I'm grateful for my health and the knowledge of the plan God has for me and for all of us. To learn more about my beliefs or to be enlightened, click here.
And this cute baby has been sleeping through the night (finally!) the last 3 days but I don't feel it because of our early morning visitor! Oh the woes of being a mother to young children. Precious children. I am enjoying it. Really, even if the bags under my eyes would tell you otherwise. I love them and I love being a mother.

Lately I've been really counting my blessings and thank the Lord for my beautiful children, my sweet husband and the opportunity to be a mother. I love these pictures that CK took of Alexandra and I. We were sharing a cup of peppermint tea after church. We were racing to see who could slurp it the fastest....
can you guess who won? Little hog.

Looks pretty suspcious, doesn't it? Can you guess what happened??
Alex and her cousins Olivia and Luke.
My beautiful mom, there to support since Chris was working today.
My dad took my keys after they rescued my kiddos and held on to them until I was ready to go. He's the responsible one.
The first time I called 911 back in June, we were watching my sisters kids and her little dog. I had all the kids piled in the Suburban and Chris had a truck so we needed to go pick-up a table and chairs from his parents house. One by one the kids left the car, even though I told them to stay put. I had the keys in the console and shut the door once Alex got out with Lauren, leaving Samantha and the dog in the car. The second I shut the door Roxy came running to the door and stepped on the automatic lock and locked the door! I ran inside and called 911. They arrived within 5 minutes but meanwhile Roxy was standing on Samantha and barking in her face and she was hysterical! Everything was fine, although I was a little uneasy and anxious. The moral to my two stories is: HIDE-A-KEY! I'm getting one on Monday.
