How TIRED Can You Possibly BE???

After an extremely busy call night on Friday, not getting home until after 2:00 PM, getting only a very short nap with multiple interruptions I was the picture of exhaustion this past Saturday. Todd had worked all Friday night and Saturday helping our friends move so he was tired as well. Saturday night we were able to drag our disheveled selves out the door in order to get some dinner and a few groceries for Sunday. It wasn't until we had been home for over 3o minutes that we realized that we had come in without any of the groceries...and the grocery store had been our last stop before coming home!!!

Oh least all the food was still cold when we finally got it into the house and put away.

Happy Birthday Laurel and Brady!

Happy Birthday Laurel (so sorry this a few days late)! Laurel is someone that I truly admire...she never thinks twice about choosing the right and is such an example of righteousness! She is SUPERWOMAN!!! I never know quite how she does everything she does and everything is always done to perfection! She is such a loving wife, mother, sister and daughter...and one of my very best friends! How blessed I am to have Laurel as my sister!!!

Brady...what to say...he is absolutely hysterical. There is never a boring moment if he is around. He is a fantastic husband and father (excluding this past weekend)...I am so glad that he takes such good care of Laurel and my Princess! He is such a hard worker and has truly sacrificed to accomplish his goal of becoming a if only I can bring you over from the dark side to the light of surgery!

Todd and I are definitely going to miss you guys...but are so excited for the adventures you have awaiting you!

Happy Mothers Day!

Happy Mothers Day to every mother...I admire all of you so much. Your life is more challenging and difficult than most will ever recognize. You work 365 days a year, 24 hours a day without rest or complaint. Your lasting influence on us all is immeasurble!

I would like to take advantage of this special day to honor my precious Mother and Grand mother. How blessed I am to have these two fabulous women in my life!!!

My mother's example of service, unconditional love and kindness know no end. Her support is endless...she has always made me believe that I can accomplish anything I set my mind to and never let me give up even when things were tough! I treasure my phone calls with her and I drive to and from the hospital. Everyone in her presence is made to feel of their importance to her! She is loved and adored by all those who come in contact with her more than she will ever know! Thank you for being the absolutely best wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, and friend and giving us all something to emulate.

My Grandmother is truly one of my most treasured friends! She is always able to make me smile and laugh even when all I may want to do is cry. How I love that regardless of where we may be in Ogden, without fail we will see someone she knows and stop to talk. There is not a bad thing that anyone can say about this remarkable woman. She is the ultimate example of love, kindness, service to others, hard work and sacrifice. She has a love for the temple that permeates to all of her children and grandchildren.

I can only become half of the woman that my mother and grandmother are, than I will have succeeded in something in this life.

And to my dear sisters who are mothers...thank you for sharing your children with me! How I love all of them more than you can imagine! I admire you and the amazing mothers you are! Thank you for setting such a good example for me...I will have a lot to live up to someday!

As I have the blessing and the curse of speaking in sacrament today, I only pray that I can honor all of you as you so deserve...and get by with as few tears as husband is worried as I was crying just giving him parts of my talk!
