Funny Things That Happened This Week

*Sydney usually likes to go push Sadie in her swing, but this was a first!
Sydney had crawled into the swing WITH Sadie, and was swinging with her!!

*We went to McDonald's after the splash pad, the plan was just to go home
right after. Since we live right down the street I was not thinking to
bring extra clothes. So Sydney went in her swimsuit. Her favorite thing
is the kids cone from there. She was so determined to eat it that she did
not even care that she was shaking from each bite from being so cold!!
(Jenny took a pic of this so I will get it from her cam and post it)

*This is not super funny, but kinda. Sydney, and I turned the corner to see
Sadie on her side! She was trying so hard to roll over. Sydney thought it was

*Sydney came walking over to me and I just about screamed! She had black ALLL over her face, clothes,everything! I then realized in her hand was my mascara,and in her mouth was the brush!! Time for new mascara!
So I went to take a picture of this and of course my camera died. I need to be more prepared!!

Sadies Blessing ( 2 months)

I love blessing days. They are so special to me. I love to have the opportunity to hear my amazing bless our child. The words in the blessing were so beautiful, and I know Sadie is going to do amazing things. I also love having my family all here. I am so grateful for all of them. We were only missing Jenny and her fam, Jeff and his fam, and Jeff's dad. We sure missed them, but totally understand how hard traveling is! My amazing friend Lindsy helped put rose petals in Sadie's dress. She look darling. The day was so sweet.

Sadie 2 Month

So a lot happened during Sadie's two months, and I want to do post on those. So that is why there is not a whole lot of her two months.

Sadie 1 Month

I love this little girl so much. I never understood, how I could love a baby as much as Sydney. Right when I held Sadie in my arms the love for her was indescribable. She was absolutely perfect. She is my chunky baby, and I am so in love with her. She really only woke up twice for the first 2 weeks. After that she slept through the night. That was so nice, since she was not the easiest baby. Sadly she had tummy issues, but was still so sweet. It is so fun seeing the differences Sydney, and Sadie have. I always knew Sydney loved me, but at times I wondered if she really knew me. Sadie, on the other hand loves me!! I could feel the love she had for me instantly. It is so sweet. She is my sweet little girl.

The Line is being Drawn

I am continually amazed at just how blessed I truly am. My family is so amazing. I am learning what true joy is. Lately I been realizing just how messed up this world truly is. I am so scared to think this is the world, that my sweet children have to grow up in. We have been taught that a time will come where the bar will be raised, and sides will be chosen. I really never fully understood what this meant, and probably still don't, but I am beginning to get a glimpse of what this means. People I love, and care about are making some choices. They are defining their fate, and it upsets me, because no matter how hard I try to help them choose the right, the wrong is the easier choice. I am starting to see this line, and it is really getting hard on me. I want to shake these people around me, and tell them to snap out of it. Do they not see what we have been taught all of our life, happening to them? The gospel, the plan, our Heavenly parents are so amazing. If we just follow the prophet, and make decisions not only for today, but eternal choices, life would be so much better.Today I am choosing to be a better person. In all that I do. I need to be more modest. I need to be more diligent,in my prayers and reading. I need to show those people around me, it can be done. So many people are choosing to mess up, and repent later. I have done this too, but it is only harder.
I love the gospel, I know without a shadow of a doubt it is true. I know that Jesus Christ provided a way that I can return home. I know that I can choose to have an eternal family, by the decisions I make today. I am grateful for the priesthood in my home. I want to emulate Christ in all that I do. I want to teach my children through my example. I want them to know him through me. I have so much to work on. My load is heavy, but my heart is full, and ready to do all I can to be an example, to those around me. I need to stop thinking negatively about people, and see them as he would. I need to love as if everyone is my family. The line is being drawn, and my family and I are choosing eternity.
