Quick trip to the cabin.

Scott, Geoffrey, Stacy and I went to the cabin for a quick trip. Stacy and Geoff went mountain biking and then we went shooting at the shooting range. It was a short trip but a lot of fun.

Look what Carlie made!

Carlie made this Heather Bailey smarty girl book bag. So cute. It was fun. I love to sew and want my girls to love it too.

Swim party!

Carlie and Rylie and their friends can't get enough of the pool. They swim even if it's cold. I love having all the kids at my house. I still have not been in. I keep praying for a hot day.

Happy Mother's day!

Before you were conceived, I wanted you. Before you were born, I loved you. When you were born, I saw your face and I knew that I was in love. Before you were an hour old, I knew I would die for you. To this day, I will. This is the miracle of life. I LOVE being a mom!

You are who made me a mother. My first. You have always been a beautiful person inside and out. Always wanting to do what is right. Always willing to be my friend and hang out with me. You are an out sanding person, you are hardworking, willing to forgive others, enjoy serving your husband and a great friend to your sisters. The perfect example to Geoff, Carlie and Rylie. I love you and now you are going to make me Grandmother.

What can I say, you are my only son. I couldn't be more proud. You have always been a hard worker, you always know what you want and you go for it. You are so much fun to be with and talk to. You are learning the importance of serving others. I see you becoming your highest and best self. You are becoming the most amazing person. I think you are the best Geoff ever! Thank you for the many lessons that I have learned from being your mother. I love you!

Wow what a spunky, out-going, hard working, fun and joy you bring to our family. I wanted another baby after Geoff and I prayed and fasted for many years to bring you here. You were worth the wait. I am so proud of who you are becoming. You are one who also wants to do what is right and you are a great example to others. You are much like Geoff. You know what you want and you will go for it with all your might and soul. I love you Carlie!

You are the baby. Many say you are spoiled. No more then the rest of them. You are such a joy and peace maker in our family. You love to serve others and always giving in to stop the fight. You reach out to others in need. You feel the spirit often and want to please your Father in Heaven. As well as your earthly parents. You are a friend to everyone and want to make others happy. You are a beautiful dancer. You love to help in the kitchen. You are fun to swim with. I love you Rylie and I am very proud of you!

You taught me many wonderful things in life. But the most important is to love the Lord and serve my family. You were a mother of great faith. The perfect example of a mother. You were a stay at home mom and I love you for that. I miss you more than you know. Because of you I love the Temple. I love serving there every week and find much peace there. Thank you for being my mother!

Surely no more important work is to be done in this world than preparing our children to be God-fearing, happy, honorable, and productive. Parents will find no more fulfilling happiness than to have their children honor them and their teachings. It is the glory of parenthood. John testified, “I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.”
