{ya they're mine}

today in church we sat down for the last 10 minutes of sacrament {as is the case lately, but we are working on it} and visited with a sister in our ward who has 2 girls as her oldest children. she began to say that she had noticed that the oldest is "the bossy one' and the next one was "the ham"
i couldn't agree more-- although kairi has her cooky side, she does tend to be bossy. and as previous posts have solidified kess definitely fulfills the "ham" role. i am so grateful for all the little things that make them them.....

{hello nurse!!!}

congratulations to my little sister!!! she did it!!!

and now she joins a growing list of nurses in our family. evidently caring and compassion, poop and puke, insomnia and exhaustion run in our genes.

i am so proud of her for all her hard work!!! love you 't'.

she is now an lpn....

uncle kevin {mom's side} he's a nurse too!!!

{tricky toes}

i've talked of this before- here is a video of kesslynn doing "tricky toes" don't cringe!!!

{should i be worried}

is this a sign of things to come?

{the mother of invention}

some video of what kairi is and kairi does... especially on a "non-friend" day...gotta love her

{mommy day}

happy mommy day to me! i was treated to sleeping in, sick kids, handprints that i don't have to clean up- i just get to keep them (the best kind), hugs and kisses abound... nothing better than that. i know it's late, but happy mommy day to all and especially to two very special individuals: my mom and my mother-in-law. i know it is late, but i thought of you both all day long. the one cannot replace the other and they both stand as equals. i am fortunate enough to have the knowledge that i truly have one on earth and one in heaven- she is not gone. i love you both dearly. thank you for all you do, are and help me to be.

so sorry to disappoint, but really we have had a fairly quiet week this week {hurray- i think}. except for one little thing. kairi is what one might call a "social butterfly" of sorts. she recently acquired a new friend down the road and around the corner. the way our subdivision is set up is in a loop so if you start walking in one direction and follow the road you will eventually end up where you began. well i allowed kairi to go see if her friend would play. about an hour later she returns with the introduction "mom i need to tell you the truth." i love that she is honest, because it is so very important to me in my life, but this intro is not what i was expecting. she then tells me that her friend couldn't play/ wasn't home and so she had spent the last hour or so knocking on RANDOM doors, asking if they had kids that she could play with. AAAAARRRGGGG! so i am posting a poll at the bottom to see if anyone else has the problem of their child needing a never-ending pool of friends. please let me know- i am desperate......
