Funeral Fun

Ever wonder what happens when you leave children at home alone? Now I know. Click here to take a peek see what these crazy girls do unattended. I would say Hannah and her friends are not afraid to stay here alone! (Yes, that is a casket in the background-it is not occupied currently just in case you were worried)

Take My Advice...

Go see this. Take your husband. Make it a girl's night out. Laugh. Cry. Laugh til you cry. Just do it-you will be glad that you did!!

Who's your Momma?

Snack soccer momma that is. Whenever we are in charge of snacks we take the same thing. It makes the other mom's think that I am like the Martha Stewart of soccer mom's and the players LOVE it! Follow these instructions or get creative and come up with your own delightful combination, you will be the envy of all other soccer mom's! You don't need to tell them how super simple and easy it is, just graciously thank them.
  • Get cute cello bags ($1.00 @ the dollar store and they are adorable. These are covered in cute little candy corns) presentation counts, they all want to know where I bought the darling treats.
  • Fill with a yummy "sweet, salty, sour mix" Today's combo was: goldfish crackers, pretzels, Capt'n Crunch cereal, dried fruit, golden raisins, M & M's and popcorn.
Hand them the cute bag with some ice cold juice and they will be mighty happy players. Chandler tells me this is his favorite snack ever and that really the snacks are the only reason he plays soccer.

Gathering Inspiration

As if I have not felt busy and overwhelmed enough, please say hello to the new Primary President. I have served in primary before (where are you Andi Battisti when I need your ear? she was an amazing gal to serve under) I love primary but I read an article this week that contained a phrase which perfectly expressed exactly how I feel right now..."nagged by inadequacy" that pretty much sums it up. Sadly, I have NO musical ability whatsoever, very little patience and feel consumed with just routine tasks in life--what was the Bishop thinking? I know, I know, most callings are to help us grow and for our benefit-YIKES! So all of my clever friends , family and anonymous readers I am soliciting the following:

"I can't wait until I'm eight..."

On Sunday Chandler was baptized as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (to learn more of this ordinance and other principles of our church just click here.)
He was baptized by Braden and confirmed by Shawn. All of the family helped with the program, which was well supported by wonderful ward members and "The Moore's" flew out to celebrate this occasion with us. It was a beautiful day. How grateful I am to have so many blessings in my life -the gospel of Jesus Christ, family, friends and amazing leaders that try to make me a better mom, wife, friend and person. May we all strive to live each day with more integrity, less judging, more compassion and understanding and with the pure love of Christ in our hearts.
