Try that though when you've just spent all morning cleaning the church, and scrubbing your house (with a baby strapped to your chest and a toddler hanging on your leg with your husband out of town) til' it sparkled for an open house. Then literally just seconds after your handsome 3 year old wakes up he pees on the floor, gets out a bunch of toys to show the realtor, and then... your car won't start. So you pack up your littles and walk to the library to chill for 2 hours... not mention no one actually shows up at the open house.
I am so grateful that it was a beautiful day outside and that we had to walk. Otherwise I think all of those events would have made me crazy. But, Heavenly Father knows what we need. I needed a walk to the park and a gyro at Baba's grill with my little man. I wish I would have brought my camera! Mary Jane let out the most wonderful laughing fit ever while she watched Eli swing, it sounded exactly like Luci. Little twinners I tell ya, except Mj might even be louder than Luci was. Especially her screech.
And so my friends a walk, some laughs, some food, and then it was all better! I am excited for what happens next, and I know I can handle it! So bring on the rain! I know Heavenly Father sends us trials... seemingly small, and seemingly large... to make us stronger. Flying on a plane across the country this winter with 3 small children taught me that, yesterday taught me that. Oh to be a mother :)

We put up our Christmas tree tonight and decorated for this magical season. I love to listen to Christmas music and sip a warm drink while we deck our halls :) Here is one of my favorite drinks...
Caramel Apple Cider
(Cocoa Latte Recipe Book)
2 cups apple cider or apple juice
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
4 tablespoons caramel syrup
Combine everything in a cocoa latte, saucepan, or crock-pot This recipe makes 2 servings. And of course don't forget the whipping cream on top. Alternately you could also drizzle the caramel over the whipping cream for a pretty presentation.
(Better Homes and Gardens 75th Anniversary Edition)
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/3 cup half-and-half or light cream
2 tablespoons corn syrup
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
In a small pot combine sugar and cornstarch. Stir in 1/4 cup water. Stir in half-and-half, corn syrup, and butter. Cook stirring constantly over medium heat until bubbly (mixture might look a little curdled, don't worry!). Cook and stir 2 minutes longer. Remove from heat and add vanilla.

Prince Elijah was cracking us up all night long with his facial hair.
All dressed up here for the Georgia Tech V. BYU football game in Atlanta. What a beautiful day. The kids love football. They ask to play tackle football everyday with me or Jacob. At this game Luci yelled "Go Cougars!" non-stop for the entire first half. Yep.
We all will do pretty much anything to get this girl to smile. She is passing out those grins like pretzels these days.
