Sunday Saga!!

I could write a book about all the crazy things that happen during Sacrament Meeting on Sunday. This Sunday was no exception.
We were running late and arrived to church just as it was starting. I walked in and of course, no where to sit, and the overflow was not yet open. Noelle motioned that there was room beside them on a long row but it was right in the middle with Noelle and her family on one side and another couple on the other side. We sat down and I said a little prayer in my head...please let the kids behave so I do not have to make a scene getting them out of the meeting! The sacrament was almost finished and I thought ok I think we can survive this, when all the sudden I feel something warm and wet running down my legs. My first thought was Oh no, my water broke...it's not time for me to have the baby... this is not good. And then I realized that Ava who was sitting on my lap came to church in underware instead of a diaper, and I just got peed on! Needless to say I was humiliated, and as quietly as possible I made my way out of the chapel and into the car with Ava where we headed home to change!!
I keep telling myself that someday I will miss all this craziness!

Happy Mother's Day!!!

I am thinking today about all of my favorite Moms!!!!
First on the List is...My own Mother, I am thankful to her in many more ways then I can count or possibly list!! I love you mom...hope you have a great Day!

My Sister Nikki, who has 4 beautiful children and is an example to me everyday, and because she is a mother, my kids have cousins to play with whom they love and adore!

My Sister April, who does not yet have children of her own but my children adore her and they look forward to her visits when she gets a chance to "mother" them a bit. And in between those visits they squeal in delight at the sight of her picture! She will be a great mom someday!!

My sisters Becca and Abbie, who are not yet mothers but spend a great deal of time showing love for and entertaining my own children. They adore you and I am thankful for the time you spend with them and for the relationship they have with you!

I would also like to give a shout out to some of my very best friends...Alisha, Noelle, Heidi, Tristana all very wonderful mothers who are teaching me things every day!! And helped me out by taking some time to mother my children as well during all of my doctors appts. Thank you to all of you, Hope you have a wonderful mothers day as well!!

And last but not least I am thinking of mothers who I wish I got to see more frequently, mel, deb, rachel, stephanie, niki,leisel, collee, kim, nellie and I am sure many many more who are great mothers!! And I wish I could be near all of you spending time with you as well!!!

This day is for all of us to celebrate!! Today I am celebrating my greatest blessings...My three beautiful daughters, and son on the way!! And also celebrating all the wonderful mothers I have in my life!!!
