Perfect Sunday

Today we had such a fun day! We took the kiddies along with some of my siblings....Kim, Blaine and Jared with their kids and our fun Grandma Betty....and went along the trail behind Lagoon. It was BEAUTIFUL, shaddy, nice weather...the kids had so much fun riding bikes and scooters. We even met a friend along the way...NICK....his hair says it all!

As a MOM

What is my favorite part of the day: Right after bath time. My kids are fed, full of energy...smell so good, HAPPY and are ready for a full day.

Least Favorite Part of the day: I would say before dinner time. Trying to figure out what we are going to eat. My kids are so tired and ornery...I am tired and ornery too.

Proudest Moment: This one is hard. I am always proud of my kids, but I love when people stop me in a store and tell me how cute my kids are. Addi never meets a stranger. She talks and waves to everyone. Kohen is more shy, but sometimes will follow his sister. I LOVE when Kohen teaches Addi the primary songs. He gets SOOO excited to sing them to her, and when she sings them back to makes me SO happy!

My biggest challenge as a mother: Working full time, balancing my time between both of them and having Zach travel.

Biggest Oooops/Embarrassing moment: When we are going ANYWHERE and Addi will say, "Shit Shit Shit Shit Shit Shit" get the picture....guess I need to work on that one.

Thing I said I would never do or say: I NEVER thought I would drive a minivan...and I LOVE it. I always hated when I would ask my mom something and she would say,"because I said so." I swore I would never say that.

What am I looking forward to: Watching my kids grow and change. I am looking forward to the next phase in life. Being a stay at home mom. Having Zach graduate and moving to Egypt. I LOVE being a mom. It is by far the most challenging thing I have ever done, but yet the most rewarding. Nothing is better than a sweet kiss or hearing those words that I will always cherish...I LOVE you. I can't imagine taking this journey with anyone other than Zach. He is an amazing dad and I love him so much. My kiddies are my little side kicks and best buds. I love you KoKo and Addi.

Who Had a BIRTHDAY shout HoOrAY....

Mr. Kohen turned 3 years old yesterday.....
My big boy! I can't believe that you are 3 years old. You are such a BIG boy and such a fun kid to have around. You are such a patient and good big brother to your sister. She LOVES you more than you know. Even if she bites and pinches you. You are so sweet and have your grandmas wrapped around their finger. You are SO loved by ALL of your aunts and uncles and ESPECIALLY your cousins. I am SO thankful to have you in our family. You and your daddy are best buds and you always want to be just like him. You love it when you have a t-shirt and flip flops like daddy. You are my little bud. It brightens my day when you call me at work...or when you cry at night because you need one more kiss. Kohen...I am sorry that you were so sick and we couldn't have your birthday party....but thank you for being such an amazing little boy!!!

I LOVE you,
