I heard this song today while driving home. I have to admit it brought a little tear to my eye. Way back almost sixteen years ago Thomas and I had just started dating. He came over one night to pick me up, I was getting ready in the bathroom and didn't know he was there. He caught me singing this song at the top of my lungs. Kind of embarrassing for me, but he know that the song just described how I was feeling. Sixteen years, and almost seven kids later the words couldn't be any truer! And it's got a pretty catchy tune to boot.

Ada LOVES her some chickens! She gets giddy with excitement every time she sees them. She is also quite fearless. She has no problem chasing 'em down, picking 'em up and transporting them to wherever she sees fit. It's really the funniest thing to see. She is also very possessive. Don't even think about taking her chicken from her. "MINE!" is a new word she's picked up that seems to be pretty helpful in protecting her new found property.

I'm such a lucky girl. I was the mom with the most flower hair pin presents in church today. Having four kids in Primary really has it's perks sometimes.
It's funny how life happens. I have six kids. Weird/Wonderful.

You may not know this about me...but almost every night as I lay down to do to sleep I "see" things in my mind. It's really not as creepy as it sounds, I promise. I see clothing. And not just your everyday jeans and T-shirts. I see the most beautiful, colorful, indescribable designs of perfection. Sadly I am severely lacking in the ability to translate what I see in my head to paper. And I always tell myself I'll remember in the morning and try to sketch it then. Somehow I never do remember. I love sewing and learning everything I can about it. It's hard to squeeze it in with everything else I should be doing. But whenever I do, I feel so happy. OK, I'm weird. Although you wouldn't know from looking at me I have the heart of a fashion designer. So, you can only imagine the delight I took in finding these two creating "dress designs" the other day! They were so cute concocting ideas on how they were going to sell their paper dresses and where they should hang them up for people to see. Children after my own heart!

It's funny how my definition of "busy" has evolved over the years. It's funny how I have evolved over the years.
