Kids say the darnedest things!

So recently I have been trying to calm down and just enjoy the here and now in my life and be grateful for the blessings that I have. I live in great country even with the current problems we are facing as a country. I have a great supportive and loving Husband who does as much as he can for our family and especially for me. I have two beautiful girls who can always make me laugh or smile. I have a job that helps pay the bills. Speaking of laughter I was reminded of how simple and wonderful life is on Sunday when before Sacrament one of the primary teachers came over to me and told me about how my daughter Lily made her laugh. She then proceeded to tell me that when Lily was in primary that she stood up and said "My parents tell me every morning to shut up!" and "My parents just got married" Now when I heard this I just had to laugh. I was not worried about the impression that the teacher had of me because I knew it came from the mouth of a three year old. We do tell Lily to lower her voice or be quiet so she doesn't wake up her sister but I just laughed to hear her version of things!! Lily is very good at reminding me that I am blessed when she talks bout how she loves her family. She also made me laugh later on that night when we were at my in-laws and Lily was talking to her Uncle Mikey as she calls him. " well she looked at him and said you can't leave Uncle Mikey" Uncle Mike then said " well why not?" So then Lily responded " Because I love you Uncle Mikey " And she gave him a big hug. It was very cute and just innocent. If you ever need a pick up just remember that kids say the darnedest things!!

So I know it is a little late being posted but what can I say other than I am fashionably late! Halloween was so much fun this year. My sister in law invited us to come up to Kaysville and trick or treat in their neighborhood and enjoy some dinner with them. It was great and it was so much fun to see so many kids and costumes. I have to say their neighborhood is very friendly and Lily had a blast trick or treating with Kenna, Kelsie, and Kaden. I had fun taking Brooklyn around she made an adorable baby chick and actually had some meat on her!! The pictures speak for themselves! Happy belated Halloween to everyone. I hope you all got some tricks with your treats!!
