Happy Birthday to Me!

I was totally shocked with this gift! Mark had seen me drooling over it in a catalog...I had no idea he would actually splurge and get it for me! I can't wait to try it!
We had a fun outing to Temple Square to see the lights. It was a beautiful evening!

My awesome kids woke me up with breakfast in bed! They fixed cereal, sliced oranges, cinnamon toast, yogurt, and a drink of milk. How sweet is that? (especially since Mark was already gone to work!) They even gave me an awesome foot rub while I was eating. Ammon came in and said, "Mom, they're giving your toes a back rub!" ha ha ha! Here are my five reasons I love to be called "Mom":

I have had to let some things go lately...with five kids including an extremely demanding baby (& a 4th grader with a lot of homework!), I've had to make peace with the fact that I can't do it all. So, blogging was one of the first to go. I won't try to make up for lost time, but will simply post a few pictures here and just say that we got grass in the backyard (woot woot!), had a fun Halloween, had fun celebrating Mark's birthday, had a fun trip to Park City, pinewood derby (Josh's is the red truck), and had a great Thanksgiving. We are fully enjoying the Christmas season so far and are looking forward to my birthday, our anniversary (11 years!) and Christmas. My favorite time of year!
