So really you could have just woken me up Monday night for our Family Home Evening. For those of my religion or not (L.D.S) I find it so important to take a night out of our busy week to come together as a family. . . with the TV off, our phones on silent and the chores put on hold we come together to spend time as a family. Our Monday nights are special and tonight consisted of us sitting on our FHE blanket ( a blanket with my and mr husbands pics on it that I made for him years ago. . I hope to make a new one with the whole fams pics) and singing I belong to the Church Of Jesus Christ. . . with instruments and marching, a lesson on the Savior and His church, a family prayer, hungry hungry hippo game and ice cream!!! I find it important to let your children see you pray, they learn you believe that Heavenly Father is listening. I know it is important to take time to teach them the things that you know to be true and the things that are important to you so they can grow up with the values you hope they have. I think it is great to play games as a family so they see you having fun and being silly. and of course it is wonderful to enjoy a treat together so you can show what a sweet mom you are. PS A LITTLE OPTIMISTIC BIRDY ONCE TOLD ME THE WAY TO BEING HAPPY IS THRU GIVING. . . SO I WILL BE HAVING A GIVE AWAY ON THURSDAY. . . STOP IN TO SEE, ALL ARE WELCOME TO PARTICIPATE. . . my pessimistic side tells me,"why are you doing a give away, people could care less about your give away." but I am optimistic that you will love the give away I have to offer!

Now I'm sure some of you have this problem on Mondays. . .tired, kids are crazy, dad is back to work making kids even crazier and chores to start on, sometimes I really want to sleep thru Monday. . but then I would miss this. . .
Elizabeth feeding her fake bird (that now lives in my decorative bird cage, and is carried around the house) her breakfast. . . Realizing by 11am that I desperately need a shower after chasing kids for the morning. . .
I would have missed this fit. . . the first of many of the day. . .
