Jeffrey's prayer

Wanted to remember this. Jeffrey prayer this morning was so cute. sometimes he is so sincere that I want to squeeze him. He prayed about 5 times for Chris and his tests and finals. He prayed for Uncle Jeff in the war and his family. He prayed for Aunt Michelle in school. He prayed for Henry. He prayed that we will all be not grumpy (meaning mom). Love how sincere he is.

Quiet time

The kids were relatively quite so I could prepare my first lesson for gospel doctrine. So glad for that.


Today I cleaned just the kitchen area. I totally cleaned off the counters. It felt so nice!!! what is ever better is it stayed clean. and It was all cleaned up after dinner. my goal for tomorrow is the dining area. baby steps :)

A date

Chris and I went out on a date tonight thanks to a wonderful friend. It is so nice to be with him and no distractions of children (except Henry) and be able to talk about what is going on. I'm so blessed to still enjoy being with the man I love almost 11 years later. I'm so happy we have things to talk about. I love him and love spending time with him.

there will be a few random things

My mom. she left this morning and I miss her but oddly I think I'm doing OK and think I'm going to make it

show shoveler. It was snowing today and someone shoveled our sidewalk. Not sure who as I was napping (another great part) but oh how thankful I was

neighbors - the older 3 played outside behind a friends house today after school. so thankful that they live close enough and are willing to let me kids come crash

prayers - any kids, from the kids, my own or many others. I am so thankful for them

I love my kids! Lately Jeffrey has been praying that Henry gets his sleep so mom can sleep too. My kids know I am grumpy beyond belief when I don't get my sleep. Love that they care.


I missed the last 2 days. mostly because I fell asleep. so here it goes

Friday - the best part of the day was having all the kids home. They actually played very well together. that is a miracle.

Saturday - I got to go to the temple with Chris! I love the temple and I love going with him. I love how easily the spirit answers our questions. I wish we lived closer.

mr fix-it

Chris fixed my bosch today. He took out the old cord (at least 20 yrs old) and put in a new one. why did he do this well because the old cord started smoking and had sparks. Love how handy he is.

cuddling with Henry

Since this may be our last or may not be. Today I took advantage of holding Henry as much as I could during the early evening. I love how it feels to have them snuggling up on your chest. One of the best feelings ever.

The boys had tumbling today at the YMCA. It was so nice to get out of the house. More than that it was great to see those who go to class with me and show them Henry. It was so nice to be back to a place I love and a place that is a 2nd home to me. I am also finally feeling good enough to go out and walk around. So nice to be getting back to "normal"
