5 weeks to go!!

5 weeks from today I will no longer be a mom of just 4 but a mom of 5. I still can't fathom that. I grew up in a non-LDS home with a family of 4 kids and we were the ones with a huge family! Life was different back then. My mom worked and I don't have a lot of memories of being home during the day. I do remember playing during the summer outside in our house with 1 1/2 acres in Battleground, Washington. Those are the best memories of my life. I don't know why we ever had to move from there when I was 12 but that was a sad time for me. I hope that my kids make memories of their childhood to last them forever. I hope I am doing enough for them as a mom to make sure that happens.

Last night the kids went Trick or Treating with "B". We realized an hour before that our pumpkin was still in the back of our car and we had not carved it yet. We had planned on doing it for FHE this week but ended up doing something entirely different. So, we popped that baby out of the car and did the fastest carving you can imagine. The kids still had a blast doing it and I got my pictures for the scrapbook. Even if we wait until the last minute we still try to get those traditions in there.

I'll have more later......

  1. I can totally relate to your childhood comments. I hope it benefits us as moms in that it gives us some insight into teaching our children to look at the world objectively and not judge others.
