I dare you to be true to yourself
Sometimes I think we are afraid of our potential. We are children of God remember...
There is no degree in motherhood just a lifelong experience that will mold you into something divine if give it your all.
You know that God is NOT discouraged because he keeps sending children to earth.

Already my tulips are bursting through the ground! As I looked at the beautiful little green shoots reaching towards the sun for growth I pondered how we too reach towards the son, the son of God for growth.
I am a Mormon and I am a regular person seeking happiness. I know that happiness can be found through Jesus Christ. I believe that The Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the most correct religion on earth and Jesus Christ is the head of it. Family is Central to my happiness. My marriage is so important to me. I am excited about what I know to be true. It is so wonderful to be able to say with complete certainly that Jesus Christ lives. I love praying to God and asking for help I know that with the help of Jesus Christ I can bloom just as the tulips into a glorious being.
"We see ourselves in terms of today but God sees us in terms of forever." If you want to find out if Jesus Christ lives pray, I know sincere prayers are indeed answered.
- It's boring
- Jack tries to help and makes it pain scary
- I am not very good at it (wish I was a perfectionist but I am NOT)
- I burn myself always
Anyway, I have been ironing nearly every Monday and I am working on trying to develop some kind of love towards the task. OK I am not trying that hard to love it just trying to endure it.
Jack and I cleaned our gross car...no let me rephrase I cleaned the car while Jack dug holes in the yard and pulled up the sprinklers. The car smells and looks lovely now thanks to me and the yard needs help thanks to Jack.
Both Jack and I were looking super homeless in regards to our hair so we got a cut. Jack was eating a candy at the hairdressers and I asked him what flavor it was, he said confidently "nutberry!" Who knew there was such a flavor? Apparently nutberry is very delicious.

I was sitting here with my enormous baby in my arms and I realized that he was asleep. He looked so peaceful and perfect and the song "You raise me up" started playing on my Pandora station (which I love) and I thought about how my children raise me up.
When I am feeling low or exhausted Jack will randomly say so matter of fact "mommy I love you so much" or Lucas smiles and giggles at me. These little moments make me want to be better, they indeed raise me up to more than I can be on my own. Motherhood is challenging but I feel I have made more personal progression because I am a mother.
I hope one day I will be able to raise my children up and help them climb their mountains of life and help them through the Stormy seas so that they can be all that they can be.

I am not much of a Valentines gal. Not that I am against all the LOVE I just don't enjoy the pressure of going to the store and buying something just because someone somewhere decided that on February 14th we should all walk around saying mushy stuff to our loved one. Well, I like to say mushy stuff to my hubby everyday and any day, I don't need an excuse.
A huge bonus for me on this day of mush was Mr. Carney came home normal time!!!!! This was spectacular. He had a wrestling match with bulldozer Jack. Jack was jumping in places that looked uncomfortable for Ben. Jack kept yelling;

I love musicals and so does my Jack Attack.
This song has such a beautiful message. I LOVE the lyrics;
If you reach for the stars all you get are the stars
but we've found a whole new spin if you reach for the heavens
You get the stars thrown in
Anthing can happen if you let it
life out there is waiting so go and get it
*Ok so Jack looks more like a serial killer in these actions shots, I promise you were were happily singing and dancing...
So the other day on our way home from Miss Patti's pre-school Jack and Dallin told me who they were going to Marry:
Jack: You need to tell my mom
Dallin: Oh Yeah...Tessica (Dallin always says my name with a "T" and I LOVE it)so today we decided who we are going to marry. Guess who I am going to marry?
Me: Oh lovely, (inside I gigggle; thats your cousin!) Jack who are you going to marry?
Jack: Hummm, I think I will marry Cory
Dallin: Oh come on! You can't marry Cory she is my friend!
Jack: Dallin what are you doing?
Dallin: This is MY job! I am getting pants for Lucas
Jack: Hummm that's OK because I am playing in the superball
Thismorning Jack asked me, "So what are you going to get me for valantines day?" Checky little lad.
Today I am feeling very thankful. I know God lives and loves us. No questions:)
This dog can drive me crazy, like when she eats diapers and licks the contents and scatters little scraps of diaper all over my floor! This happens daily. The grossest thing is that she looks SO happy while she is doing it. It's as if every lick of poop is one step closer to eternal bliss. As gross as she can be she is terribly tolerant of the kiddos. Oh and by the way she caught a mouse today; her first EVER kill.
