The Greats in St. George

We met my grandma and grandpa Pierce in St. George for a nice visit.  It was Vera's first time meeting the Greats! They loved her and she loved them.  It is always so much fun when Grandpa Larry and Grandma Donna are around.  We cherish being with them.  Like always, our time with them went by way too fast. We had lots of fun playing cards, catching up, reminiscing about great grandma Betty - We went through her journals, pictures, and other mementos.  We found lots of journal entries about my grandma donna, my mom, and even one about me.  It was special to read about her perspective on life. All in all, it was a great trip and we can't wait to see the Greats again!

Yard Work

The girls and I made our way over to Cook's nursery to buy some plants and flowers for our yard. I was completely overwhelmed going in there with no idea wha I was doing, a wild toddler, and a baby. Luckily, we were saved by Dan, the Garden Man. After wandering around for probably 30 minutes and bribing Jade to be good, Dan came up to us and asked if we needed help. He was a garden angel, so nice to Jade and encouraging to me. He picked out just about everything for me loaded it on my two wagons and took them to the front while I pushed the stroller. I would have never made it outta there if it weren't for him. 

I did all the planting while the girls were napping. When Jade woke and saw the flowers she started gasping and saying how pretty they were. Then she kept saying, "thank you, mom, for my flowers." I'll plant flowers everyday for that reaction. She was seriously in awe of their beauty (and they weren't even that spectacular). I hope she will always find beauty in the simple things.

Mother's Day

Oh, how I cherish these days.  I know there will never be anything sweeter than this time of tiny giggles and cries for mama. I couldn't be more grateful for every ounce of motherhood. The good & the bad.  It is refining me - pushing me to be a better person in every possible way and teaching me more than any other avenue of life could.  I love these girls. & their daddy.
