Myles is walking back and forth "setting the table". One at a time fork, knife, fork, knife piles of them on the kitchen table. The funny thing is we just had dinner. Oh these little ones bring so much joy.

Reflections on the stuff life is made of...

Today I held and snuggled Myles for at least 20 minutes. It was sheer heaven on earth. Oh how I long for these moments often. But I feel like my life is a constant obstacle course where I'm always one obstacle behind. Well with feeling like this I've really decided I've got to put "THE IMPORTANT" things first. And take time to smell the roses, enjoy the chocolate, and love out loud often and always.

Lucky to be loved, and to love

Tonight I was lucky enough to go to Bryson's team Cole Sport fundraising dinner (I don't even care how grammatically incorrect that sentence is SERIOUSLY.) It was great to spend a lil time with the love of my life. Right now life is so hectic I'm trying to love every possible second we get to spend together. I sure love you bryson. How lucky I am that I married the man of my dreams?

So little time

Kevin came home from his mission! So exciting!

So There has been so much to post, but I have no time. Three callings (and right when I finish 2 huge events I get another one to work on!), helping to coach both girls soccer teams, cycling season. Any way you get the point, I'm all ready palnning how to simplify next spring (I'm positive I can't do this again!)

For mothers day I was SO SURPRISED with......
a brand new mountain bike!
I should have known something was coming, because Bryson asked me what I was getting him for fathers day no less then 5 times?
Giant Anthem Womens LMX!
Well it's way to nice for me disc breaks and all!
What a thoughtful hubby I have.
Now I just need a sitter so I can RIDE

my first mommy moment ever

The moment my first child was born, I knew I loved her with every fiber of my soul. At that exact same moment I knew how much my mom loved me.


I feel my greatest blessing IS BEING A MOTHER
Real Mothers don't eat quiche;
They don't have time to make it.
Real Mothers know that their kitchen utensils Are probably in the sandbox.
Real Mothers often have sticky floors, Filthy ovens and happy kids.
Real Mothers know that dried play dough Doesn't come out of carpets.
Real Mothers don't want to know what The vacuum just sucked up....
Real Mothers sometimes ask 'Why me?' And get their answer when a little
Voice says, 'Because I love you best..'
Real Mothers know that a child's growth Is not measured by height or years or grade... It is marked by the progression of Mommy to Mom to Mother........

The Images of Mother

4 YEARS OF AGE - My Mommy can do anything!

8 YEARS OF AGE - My Mom knows a lot! A whole lot!

12 YEARS OF AGE - My Mother doesn't know everything!

14 YEARS OF AGE - My Mother? She wouldn't have a clue. .

16 YEARS OF AGE - Mother? She's so five minutes ago.

18 YEARS OF AGE - That old woman? She's way out of date!

25 YEARS OF AGE - Well, she might know a little bit about it!

35 YEARS OF AGE - Before we decide, let's get Mom's opinion.

45 YEARS OF AGE - Wonder what Mom would have thought about it?

65 YEARS OF AGE - Wish I could talk it over with Mom...

The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure she carries, or the way she combs her hair..

The beauty of a woman must be seen from within her eyes, Because that is the doorway to her heart, The place where love resides. The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole, But true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she

Shows, and the beauty of a woman with passing years only grows!

Sleep my long lost friend

Last night was brutal. The details are not needed. Myles would not sleep at all, and come 6:30 am I did not get a minute of sleep. I'm praying a nap is in the mix.
