For Mother's Day our Ward handed out the white flowers that are in the picture. Well Madison and I decided that we were going to plant some more of them but in different colors. So we went to Home Depot and bought some and planted them and put them outside the front door. We think they are very beautiful and had to share them with all of you!

We are finally seeing the works in progress of Bill roto-tilling,mulching,seeding and watering by hand. We have grass growing...YAHOO! Today Bill built a new sprinkler system instead of having to stand and water it with a spray nozzle. We are so excited to get grass in the backyard and can't wait for all those fun BBQ outside.
My Mothers Day started on Friday night. We were at Mike's house, had an amazing BBQ! Brittany had Madison have a sleep over at her house, so it was just Bill and I at home. I got up and we got ready for church, the Primary got up and sang a song and all the men in the ward joined them it was really nice, made me cry. After we got home from church Bill started making hoggies, yummy! There was a knock on the front door and there was Skyler,Ava,Chris and Leslie...I was so surprised! It was so nice of them come down for Mother's Day! After they had to go, we went to Brittany and David's for a Mother's Day dinner, we had Chicken, it was really good, all the men did the cooking! I got flowers for Mother's Day and some beautiful cards. It was a Wonderful day!

The girls came out for my birthday,with mommy and daddy of coarse...What a fun present that was. Able to spend time with the girls,since they live in Mesa, don't get to see them as much. Rosealie and Chloe both were in a good mood and smiling and laughing, it was fun. (hopefully these picture turn out to be as cute as they were in person!- Chloe is 1st, then Rosealie)

A baby asked God, 'They tell me you are sending me to earth
tomorrow, but how am I going to live there being so small and
helpless?' God said, 'Your angel will be waiting for you and will
take care of you.'
The child further inquired, 'But tell me, here in heaven I don't
have to do anything but sing and smile to be happy.' God said, 'Your
angel will sing for you and will also smile for you. And you will
feel your angel's love and be very happy.'
Again the child asked, 'And how am I going to be able to understand
when people talk to me if I don't know the language?' God said,
'Your angel will tell you the most beautiful and sweet words you
will ever hear, and with much patience and care, your angel will
teach you how to speak.'
'And what am I going to do when I want to talk to you?' God said,
'Your angel will place your hands together and will teach you how to
'Who will protect me?' God said, 'Your angel will defend you even if
it means risking its life.'
'But I will always be sad because I will not see you anymore.' God
said, 'Your angel will always talk to you about Me and will teach
you the way to come back to Me, even though I will always be next to
At that moment there was much peace in Heaven, but voices from Earth
could be heard and the child hurriedly asked, 'God, if I am to leave
now, please tell me my angel's name.'
God said, 'You will simply call her, 'Mom.'
I have decided that I can not change the pass, that pondering over it makes it worse. That the choices you make in your life is why you where put here in the first place...to make that choice and then live and grow from the consequences from that choice. The decision is to first think about it before you act...is this choice I am about to make; hurt or help out others around me and whom I may come in contact with every day of my life??? Will it be worth it???
