We're watching The Christmas Story and Hunter randomly says, "I don't like guns. I shoot my eye out."

And then he goes up stairs and we can hear him singing, "ra ra Ra ra."

Late night giggles.

even though it's not that late.

My sister and I can get pretty weird sometimes. Neil was in with the boys helping them fall asleep and I'm sure all he heard was a little buzz buzz from my phone telling me I got a message and then me laughing. It had to do with some "because that means delicious one" and "dod" and "tutu", or "go" "like ga" and "ga tit" which lead to "ga tit too. 2" and turned into "tutu" "that's weird". and anyway, it made me laugh pretty good.

My sister finally signed up for Pinterest... and as she was finally giving up and going to bed I started looking on my quiet amusements board because I wanted to make sure she saw a couple of them. Anyway, they all just made me laugh. especially this one, so here is my picture for the day.

Making this, even though I made it yesterday. I like to think about it still. :)

My mom.

It's nice having my mom close. Last night we went to the RS dinner together and was a lot of fun. It's also been so nice having her around as I've been sick lately. She's always so willing to drop everything and come help me, or watch my children while I get over my sick spells, or let my boys go play at her house. She has been and is such a blessing!

Thanks Mom!

So much fun family time!

These last couple days have been great fun! Today we went to Carl's Jr so the boys could play on the jungle gym that is there. They loved it! We were there probably at least an hour! It was so much fun watching them run around and play with the other kids.

Then we had the best FHE yet! I love watching my boys learn and play, and hearing their cute answers! They are so playful and it's always a hoot singing and being silly with them! :) I don't know what it is, but we have been blessed with an overabundance of love in our home lately and I am so grateful for it!

Serving and callings, as well as being released and getting a break. ;)

Starting today I am no longer in YW's. It's bitter sweet. I loved it, loved the girls, greatly enjoyed having something to every Tuesday, loved being involved with the ward on that level. But for right now I am so grateful to be done! To have time for myself, to take care of me, to rest. Time to take care of my family, my husband, my home.

{11/9/11} Now that it's been a couple of days... I didn't realize how much time and energy I put into that calling! These last 3 days have been fabulous! I'm happier than I have been in a long time! I feel great. and I think a lot of these two things come from having the mental energy to take care of "us". For the first time since before Mabel was born probably, I've done all our laundry AND have put it all away at. the. same. time.! Our sink and counter have remained dish free, as in we've stayed on top of washing them and putting them away! It's really surprised me what a stark contrast I've seen of myself in the last couple days! I'm grateful for the time I had to serve and how I grew and what I learned, but for now I'm so thankful that I get a break!!! :)
