Peripheral Vision

EE's been working on expanding his peripheral vision. Once I explained it to him a couple weeks ago, he became fascinated with it. He's constantly tying to expand his, it's sooo fun to watch his efforts. He'll sit & stare straight ahead at something & then point out things not the periphery. Here's a visual example:
He is perfection!

I'm so glad when Daddy comes home...

At 4:28 this morning, EE started laughing & turned toward me with a big smile on his face, snuggling into me. I asked him why the big smile & he responded with "Momma, Dada's home now. Dada's home now." Then fell to sleep, snuggled into me with a smile on his face.

I couldn't help but smile as I thought of how blessed I am to have such a good man for my husband & my best friend. We all love & miss him. Friday can't get here fast enough, because like my children, I also am so glad when Daddy comes home!   :)

Being "Mommy" is my favorite!

The boys are sharing my bed with me while Denver is in San Antonio this week for DBA training. Ammon woke up to go potty & then came back to bed, it's been about 20 minutes since he did & I'd heard some soft snoring from him, so I assumed he was back to sleep. Then he mumbled something. I said "What Buddy?" He turned his head to look at me & responded in a snarky tone "I'm talking to somebody in my dream here, can I have a little privacy?" Then he turned over & almost immediately started snoring again. 

Oh. My. Stars. I was laughing so hard on the inside.  Being the mom to these wonderful kids of mine is the BEST!

"Do you know how much I love Momma?"

Denver just finished reading the boys stories, one of them was the book about the rabbit who was telling his son how much he loved him. After the book was finished, Ammon started telling Denver how much he loved him: "All the way past Heaven! How much do you love me Daddy?" So Denver starts trying to tell him how much he loves him, EE interrupts with "Do you know how much I love Momma?" (That's right, he wanted to explain how much he loves his Momma!) "All the way past infinity!" he says. Sigh... Being the mommy is the best!

"Momma, I like the scriptures."

About thirty minutes after I read the boys a chapter from The Book of Mormon, just like we do every night, Enoch snuggles up to me & says "Momma, I like the scriptures." I told him I liked them too & asked him why he liked them, he responded "Because, I just do, they have good fings (things) in them." Then he snuggled up to me & promptly fell to sleep. 

I love how my babies remind me of all the goodness there is all around me, I just need to seek it out.

Good Times

We had a weenie roast at Karlinda's tonight. We made woofums. I'd never had them before, this is Brooke & I sharing my first ever woofum. It's a biscuit you cook over the fire & then fill with whatever you like. We filled this one with chocolate pudding.  
Rachel's friend Maddie came with us. This is she & I cooking our biscuits over the fire so we could try woofums.  :)
