We're feeling better. But it's been so nice just staying in, keeping warm and cozy, not being obligated to go anywhere.... But, life goes on. There are other things besides just surviving that are important too I suppose. Things to do, people to visit, primary programs to put on... Sunday at 12pm you're going to hear a big fat sigh of relief from me.
But enough about that.
Here are some things on my mind recently:
Value quilting. I love how it plays tricks on your eyes.
Halloween costumes. Last night I had a very grown up moment. I was sitting beside Zach on the couch, we were watching "Lonesome Dove," and I was stitching ears on a halloween costume for one of our boys. Isn't that a cozy image?
I need to go back to DI and get some more long sleeved shirts to upcycle. :)
We're potty training Quinn. . . . Yeah.
I've found that if I take time to read my scriptures every day I don't feel overwhelmed, angry, trapped, or like putting my head through a wall. Imagine that!
Zach just called me from work with his entire 4th hour class on speaker phone. He had told them about our awesome first date and none of them believed him. So they made me retell it from my point of view. It was magical. Despite me telling him from the very beginning that the boy I was going to marry was on his mission. To that Zach replied, "That's only because you don't know me yet." Confidence is an amazing thing.
Now here are some seriously sweet pictures of the boys this morning. All four of them:
