I can say for sure that Jordan is a HUGE blessing in our family. I'm so grateful that God gave me this little one! He's such a courageous, sensitive soul and has so many talents. I also firmly believe that God has a plan for each of us, knows us, and watches over us. This kid has such good potential. I hope to help him blow on that potential and to be able to do some good in life. I love you Jordan with all my heart! You're one of my greatest treasures.
The Costume Box. It is the absolutely funnest, best class I've ever taken!!! It's perfect for anyone. You don't have to be a sewer (although to make the capes, you'll have to sew), you don't have to even consider yourself very craftsy (this would be me) in order to learn how to make costumes for kids. I've had fun making princess tiaras, and capes, and crowns. I can't wait to make more things for my kids. I also think the price is totally reasonable too. I think it's around $15.

So today I get to celebrate hard work, gut wrenching love that keeps me going, and knowing that I'm not alone in a very sacred calling to raise these little ones. One because I have a wonderful husband who is a good father, and two because I have a Heavenly Father and a Savior who never, ever leave me alone in this
So wether it's hand holding goodness, slobbery kisses, spilled milk, crying through the night for the 6th year running, my son saying to my husband: "you sure picked a beautiful mommy" "hai scelto una bella mamma!", or the mud-slinging part of motherhood, I'm grateful for it all!

While visiting with our friends they asked me if the kids have ever asked for a pet. Not really, and I felt myself kind of fortunate. Famous last words!
