Oh, my dear, Lila

Lila ate an entire pound of strawberries today!!!

I just had to post this... because that's crazy! Apparently she asked for some strawberries and started washing the whole box, so Micah decided he would just finish washing them and put them in a colander. He then set the colander out for Lila to enjoy a few berries, and continued on with his business. When he came back to check on her, he asked her where all of the strawberries had gone. With a perplexed look on her face, she simply stated that she ate them. Duh, dad! 

Oh, I love my little girl.

When Brighton woke up from his nap, he decided he wanted some strawberries, too. So for dinner, Lila and Brighton ate strawberries and carrots... well, at that point Lila only ate carrots.

What silly children we have!

Spring Break 2017

This year's spring break was very, very mellow. I LOVED it! I do really enjoy going out and doing things with my kids, but sometimes, I just need to relax. Most of the week was spent cleaning and decorating.

I did go to a Jazz game with my friend Brittnee. 14th row baby! Thanks, Emma! We had such a great time!!!

Here are a few of the things that I did this week to improve my home. :)

A bunny banner.

Faux etched glass... I might eventually really etch it, but I wasn't ready to take the plunge, so for now it's contact paper.

A reclaimed wood sign. Just to add a little farmhouse style to my house. I like farmhouse style, but I don't want everything that way... just a touch here and there.

A new scripture verse for my gallery wall.

I have many other plans to make stuff with a couple of friends from work. I'm excited! I'll be adding more stuff to the gallery wall over time. Oh... and hopefully we'll be getting a nice keyboard soon! Yay!!!

General Conference 2017

I always look forward to general conference. This time was no exception. I love hearing from the prophets, apostles, and other leaders of our church. I feel renewed, joyful, hopeful, and happy, as well as many other emotions. I want to do better! I know I can and will do better! :) 

The kids did pretty well. They're honestly getting better every time. I had some activities ready for them to help them to listen. They had fun. :)

This time was especially great because our beloved prophet Thomas S. Monson announced that there will be a temple in Saratoga Springs! Yay! Yay! Yay! I seriously cannot wait. I know it's a ways off, but, YAY!

**I may come back to this post and talk about some of my favorite talks/thoughts. I encourage you to listen to and read from the talks as well. There's something there for everyone!
