Pops Wright

Kennedy loves her Pops. She loves it when he tickles her and plays with her. He somehow can get her to laugh harder than anyone else. My kids absolutely love my Dad. It is really special to watch them interact with each other. I'm blessed to be able to live close to family and to have my children have the opportunity to have a relationship with my parents. I need all the help I can get raising these little kids and my parents give wonderful advice and lots of love.

Hooray Dorothy is Home!

Dorothy is Home and we love having her home! She is an amazing girl! She is so optimistic. She is one of those people that you want to be around and hope that some of her optimism rubs off on you. We are so blessed to have Dorothy in our lives and a part of our family.

Itches like a Cactus

For those of you who know my dear sweet little Britton know that he is EXTREMELY picky about his clothes. He has an excuse every day of why he can't wear a certain item of clothing that I pick out for him. We go through so many outfit choices each morning, and with each outfit he tells me what is wrong with a certain item. Today's excuses: I handed him a clean pair of underwear.....he puts them on and then immediately says as he is taking them back off of his body "these itch like a cactus." Err What? A cactus? Uh ok. So I handed him another pair of underwear, he put them on and then stood there for a minute like he was waiting for something to happen then said "these ones are ok." Then I bought him this heavier jacket to wear as it is getting colder and as I handed it to him to wear to school he said "I can't wear that jacket. Everyone will make fun of me if I wear that." It upset me and I, as a defensive mother asked why people would make fun of him for wearing this jacket. He said "Because its too puffy and other people don't wear puffy jackets." Great the kid comes out as Steven's twin but he gets my one worst quality of caring what other people think a little too much. The kid makes me laugh!

Today was a rainy day and we luckily had no plans and were able to stay inside. All day. At first that sounded like a dream come true. I have not been home all week so a day at home sounded perfect. BY about 11am the kids were bouncing off the walls, following Steven where ever he went (to the fridge, to the bathroom, etc.) and were getting pretty bored. For those of you who know our Presley, know that the girl is absolutely nuts! In a good way. She is hilarious! So after hours of kids bouncing off the walls, Steven finally asked, completely exhausted, "Presley why are you so crazy?" Her response with out even skipping a beat: "Cause I like to be Trazy!" Love her.

A Simple Prayer

Britton was asked to say the prayer tonight before bed. We try our hardest not to laugh when our children say their prayers and end up saying something funny but we just couldn't help ourselves when he so sincerely thanked Heavenly Father for the lamanites. Of all the things he could have said he was thankful for he chose the lamanites. Not mom or dad or his sisters. Nope the lamanites! Awesome!
