"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails. I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp. I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children. I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden. I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder. I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived." — Marjorie Pay Hinckley
I spent a week and a half in Palm Springs at my aunts house. The kids loved to be outside in the back yard. even when it was 100+ degrees out. One morning I went out and took some pictures. I can't wait to one day have a nice big yard.
Hey all, My mother in law has 4 baby kittens that desperatly need a home. They are about 5 weeks old and we are still finding out the genders. If you want one or know someone that would want one let me know asap. They need to go SOON.
The kids are both out side playing and Hollie comes running in the house yelling, "Mommy, mommy i just saw an alligator in the back yard." Of course she meant lizard but it was so cute. She said, "I've never seen an animal in our backyard."
Oh my Gosh!!!! A couple moths ago when I went to the New Kids on the Block concert Donnie was looking soooooo good. Back in the day I was a Joey fan and he's still cute. But oh my gosh Donnie is so dang good looking. What do you think. I think he won my heart when he winked at "ME" at the concert and said thank you. (we were that close that our eyes locked).
The past couple of weeks I have been substitute teaching Hollie's primary (Sunday school) class. Today we learned about being more like Jesus and what can we do to follow him. We ended up coloring these cute paper crowns that had King for the day and Queen for the day and then the kids wore them. We learned that we are all kings and queens. During primary a boy behind us was talking to Hollie and then all of a sudden I heard him say
the boy: your are not a queen Hollie: yes I am the boy: just because it says your are a queen on your crown doesn't mean you are a queen. (in a very mean tone of voice).
Hollie: your not very nice and Jesus is gonna be sad. the boy: sat there quiet
Our ward is doing a pinewood derby and invited the families to participate. Lance has never done one and is going all out. he has cut all four cars and we all get to paint them. He is convinced that we are all gonna win. Well we have to see. Stay tuned for the finished cars. There is a boat and dragster a truck and an aero dynamic car.
So on Tuesday we went and bought Trevor his own potty and some Handy Manny and spider man underwear. After 10 minutes of being home he has gone potty in his new potty. He went about 4 more times that day. It's been smooth sailing ever since then. I have been putting it off cause "I" wasn't ready. But he so was. I don't even have to ask him if he has to go every 15 min. He just goes. He dissapears and I yell, "where are you Trevor" and he yells back, "going potty". I'm knocking on wood hoping I don't junx the progress. I'm so proud of him and so happy to not have to buy diapers anymore. yay
