Happy Early Mother's Day!!!

"This ability and willingness properly to rear children, the gift to love, and eagerness, yes, longing to express it in soul development, make motherhood the noblest office or calling in the world.

She who can paint a masterpiece or write a book that will influence millions deserves the admiration and the plaudits of mankind; but she who rears successfully a family of healthy, beautiful sons and daughters, whose influence will be felt through generations to come, whose immortal souls will exert an influence throughout the ages long after paintings shall have faded, and books and statues shall have decayed or shall have been destroyed, deserves the highest honor that man can give, and the choicest blessings of God. In her high duty and service to humanity, endowing with immortality eternal spirits, she is co-partner with the Creator himself." (David O. McKay)

Here's a picture of Mama's Little Helpers. I can hardly do anything in the kitchen without them pulling up a chair or a stool and wanting to help. I guess I should enjoy it, they'll grow out of it soon enough!
We're way busy this weekend! What are your plans? I'd love to hear them! Natalia's 2nd grade teacher from last year is moving to Ohio after school is out. She is my niece Jerica's Pre-school teacher this year. We're throwing her a BonVoyage party tonight. Natalia has Softball practice, and then tomorrow a Mother/Daughter Tea for Activity Days, and then on to a friend's house for some project-doing for teachers. Sunday is Mother's Day, but I think every day should be mother's day. We're having brunch after church. Yum! Another weekend full of eating.

Annie, Happy Mother's Day!!! We had a busy weekend too. Friday evening we hosted game night, we played Scattergories and Taboo. It was soooo much fun! Saturday, Allyson had a soccer game, then Anika had a baseball game. Sunday, the girls sang two beautiful songs at church and then we had a relaxing time for the rest of the day. Amy :)
