We took a Sunday off from going to my parents a few weeks ago and took the kiddos to Temple Square to walk around and feel the spirit. In one of the visitor centers there is a giant statue of Jesus and as we were walking around the kids kept asking to go and see "big Jesus" The main way to get to "big Jesus" is by walking up this long ramp. As were walking up the ramp I felt so overcome with the spirit that it started leaking out my eyes. We sat down and the kids wanted to get a closer look so we let them walk up closer and I was able to capture this picture of them all looking up at Jesus and him looking down at them. I know he loves them so much! I know that he loves me so much! I can just imagine how it would be if he were here on the earth right now. He would have scooped those kids into his arms and given each one of them a giant hug. If Christ can love them more than I do then those are some of the most loved kids I know! Some days are REALLY hard!! Especially when each one of them want to do something different all at the same time and they each keep trying to get you to do their thing with them but you have your own agenda but I know that it is on those days that I am learning to be a little more like my Savior and to have patience with them like he has with me.
Later that night Emmagrace fell down on a skateboard and busted her eye up really bad! Don't worry it has now healed but she does have a little bit of a scar.
We all got together for my brother Jer's birthday and all of the girl cousins were walking around holding hands and playing. It was SUPER cute!! I love that they love each other so much
Our nightly routine with Sophie. She has really bad skin so every night she gets lathered up in all kinds of creams and lotions to help manage her eczema.
I was putting on makeup one morning and Emmagrace decided she wanted to learn how to put her own makeup on. This is the princess putting on her own eyeshadow
We had Sophie's birthday party yesterday because the next weekend is Mother's Day and Drew's birthday. She got a pinata, some really cute clothes, and new bed sheets
I have this week off of work so that one of the other girls can have her maternity time taken care of so today we went to the library. The kids were so excited to play with the toys and pick out their own books. I bet you can't guess how many times we have read those stories already. Emmagrace even went to bed with hers.
Lehi's new outfit he made tonight. Luckily I was able to convince him that he shouldn't sleep in it and he could wear it again tomorrow.
Sophie just looked super adorable today!
