Happy to be a Mom!

I love this thought from President David O. McKay

"She, who can paint a masterpiece or write a book that will influence millions -- deserves the admiration and the plaudits of man. But she who rears a family of beautiful sons and daughters, whose influence will be felt through generations to come, long after paintings have faded, and books have been destroyed she deserves the highest honor that man can give, and the choicest blessings of God. In her high duty and service to humanity, she is co-partner with the Creator himself."

Recent Wagisms Quotes

"What's a dishwasher?" - Spencer-- Obviously we have lived in Singapore too long.

"Our tree is so beautiful"- Marianne-- Nothing like the Magic of Christmas in a small child

On Sunday night after we set up our Christmas Tree Spencer was saying his prayers and in the middle stopped and said "Mom, I'm going to tell Heavenly Father Merry Christmas" :)

"Along time ago, when I was 8 my grandchildren died" not sure where this came from.- Spencer

Marianne what did you learn in nursery? "Jesus died." that's it. We have been talking all week about the fact that he was Resurrected and on Easter he lived again.

"Mom, Which Cloud does Jesus live in?" We then had a lengthy discussion about "where is heaven?"

Spencer why don't you think of it yourself, "I can't there are no puffing clouds coming out of my head"- Like in books :)

During the sacrament hymn on Sunday Marianne stated very loudly "I don't like this song, I don't like this song" 3 or 4 times.

Spencer what do you want to buy Marianne for Christmas? "A Pink Race Track!" :) that makes it more girly I guess

Spencer can you sit down, we can't stand in the Taxi. "But I'm looking for a Hippopatamus" Oh well did you find one :), "uh. . . . oh yea there it is, ok i'm good" then he plops down.

Mom, My tummy says "Spencer feed me, please please, I'm completely empty, feed me."

Hey bud go get me a sword so I can sword fight with you,- Devin
I can't find one how about this plate (plastic toy), SPencer
Well only if you fight with a plate too.
No, here's a spoon, thats the kind of sword they use in Singapore -(small toy spoon?)

So . . Mom. . When am I going out for sports." I wasn't quite sure how to answer that question.

Pregnancy Pictures

My Darling Friend Nicole, Took Prego Pictures of me. I never did official Prego pictures with either of the other two kids. Its not my favorite shape that I have ever been :) but to document the moment and the "Pregnancy Glow" that everyone talks about I thought it would be special to have them done.

So here I am 34 weeks pregnant, three weeks before Juliette was born.

Every girl needs a bow!


Juliette was a Red Crayon. She celebrated mostly at home. 

 Spencer was a Knight
 Marianne was a princess- Tangled and Belle, and Snow White depending on the time of day
 Marianne is our sugar girl and thought that Trick or Treating was the best thing that ever happened to her. She literally came back from collecting her candy saying "Daddy, Daddy I got one!" at EVERY house
Trick or Treating happens up at the woodlands in the American Neighborhood. About 5 million people go up and wear costumes and trick or treat!
We made orange jack or lantern pancakes for Halloween Breakfast!


My darling friends threw me a wonderful Babyshower .
 The food and decor was amazing!

 Marianne and my mom were both with me!
 lots of my friends came!
 I was 36 weeks - good thing we didn't have it much later!

My Friend Nicole did this Diaper cake so fun!

No Teeth

"Mom, don't talk to her, she doesn't have any teeff!"~ Marianne

We are doing good, adjusting a little at a time. Marianne is definitly the hardest, just wanting lots and lots of mommy time. But both kids seem to love there little sister. They will hold her for about a minute and then state very decidedly "ok I'm done" and get up and go play.

Multiple Princess Personality Disorder

Marianne is a different princess multiple tiems everyday. I have not called her Marianne for weeks, if I do she corrects to whatever princess name she wishes to be called, Belle, Princess Jasmine, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Tangled, Repunsel, . . .Ect. . .

Her favorite game right now includes a 2 minute game where she pricks her finger on the spinning wheel, lays down with her eyes closed and waits for her prince to come and Kiss her. Interesting what things we learn from Princesses isn't ? 

 Grandpa was a very faithful and loyal prince during the week he was here.

 Now I am awake
 I am waiting

 Her prince has come.
 Then she makes her bed, so she can do it again.
Spencer is a pretty good prince for a brother. Since Grandpa is gone, Daddy is now our favorite prince.
