Random Events of today

Not sure what it is, but E1 has had a lot of gas as of late.  Today, she let a big one rip in the tub and then laughed at the bubbles it created.

E1 is better at potty training.  She stayed dry all day in her underwear, even at church.  So we made cookies tonight to celebrate. 2 more days of dryness and she gets a new Ariel barbie doll.

E2 is waking up too many times in the night.  That makes one tired momma... :(

E1 loves her brother.  She loves to hold and kiss him.  She loves to play with him.  She loves to steal his toys... and she loves to say "Give him to her dadda.  I want to carry you" Meaning give baby brother to mama, so you can carry me...

I heard this quote in RS today from the Lorenzo Snow manual.  I loved it!

"But we have come along through these sacrifices, and as a people there has been no failure. Why has there been no failure? Because the people, as a whole, have had their minds fixed upon the true principles of life, and they have conformed to their duty. … The people generally have had the Spirit of the Lord, and have followed it. Hence there has been no failure. So it may be with individuals. There is a course for every person to pursue in which there will be no failure. It will apply to temporal as well as spiritual matters"--President Lorenzo Snow

That means that I have not failed as long as I keep trying.  I needed that maybe not exactly today, but in the near future I am sure it will pull me through "one of those days"

Two weeks ago I took Sweets to "Cheer Texas" a gymnastics gym that has open jump days on Fridays.  She had so much fun that every prayer she has said which is at least 3 times a day has included, "Thank you for going to Cheer Texas"  Also today as we were leaving church she asked, "Where are we going Mama?"  I said, "I don't know, where do you want to go?"  "CHEER TEXAS!!"  Guess we will be going to Cheer Texas again on Friday ;)
