Logan graduated from preschool yesterday. The bucket on his head is an astronauts helmet, not a trash can as you might have thought. This week he wants to be an astronaut so (in his own words) "I can sit on the moon and touch the stars and see shooting stars up close." We are so proud of him. He as learned so much this year. He is starting to read, he writes all of the time, and can add & subtract! WAY TO GO LOGAN!!

Ashleigh is 4 months old today. We can't believe how fast she is growing. She has started reaching for things and is able to get a hold of them. She is also sleeping between 10 and 12 hours at night.

She is deciding whether or not she's a binky or fingers girl. I have found her in her crib in the
morning on her tummy with her fingers in her mouth.

She started rolling over from her back to her tummy. She also started rolling from her tummy to her back, but doesn't do it as often.

It's been a great 4 months. We love you Ashleigh!

Today at church we had a great sacrament meeting about forgiveness. There were 4 speakers and each one was asked to talk about a Christlike attribute their mothers exhibited. Each one touched on their mother's ability to forgive. They all reference Presiden Faust's talk on forgiveness. If you didn't have the opportunity to hear or read it you ought to.,5232,23-1-690-24,00.html The bishop's wife talked and said she both loved and disliked sacrament meeting on Mother's day. She said she loved it because if your child happens to be one of the speakers you get to hear all about the wonderful things you do and because you get to hear the primary children sing. She said she disliked it because when other people talk she goes through a check list in her mind and checks off the things she does as a mother. She says she often leaves the meeting with a whole list of things she needs to work on as a mother.
Last night I was not the most patient with my children. Friday I returned from a quick trip to San Diego with a cold and have not been able to sleep or breathe well. Anyway last night as soon as they went to bed Jeff went to the store. They were not quiet and did not go to sleep right away. I had to go in several times to "remind" them that the needed to close their eyes and go to sleep. Makenzie kept talking and all I could hear is Logan saying, "Mom, Makenzie is on my bed. Mom, Makenzie keeps talking." Finally I had to put Makenzie in time out on the couch in the front room for them to take me seriously. Jeff came home put Makenzie back in bed and they all fell asleep. This morning Logan came in and gave me this letter of appology. What a sweet hearted little boy. It wasn't his fault I was so upset last night. It was my choice in how I reacted to them. I love him for his sweet and giving spirit. To translate it says - I am sorry for making you mad. Will you please forgive me? To Mom. I am so thankful to my Father in Heaven for giving me the opportunity to raise these special spirits. I hope that I can always do better at being a mother and work on my own checklist.

Yesterday I caught Ashleigh sucking on the same two fingers that Makenzie sucks on and I caught Makenzie apparently praying while sleeping.

Makenzie 3

We took Makenzies 3 year old pictures yesterday. We are so lucky to have this sweet girl in our lives. These images are scanned and not as good as the original, but the cuteness still comes out.
