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."

This is Spencer's new face. When I go to feed him, he open's his mouth as wide as he can and clothes his eyes. So funny.

So I never thought I would eat out for Thanksgiving dinner. But we heard Notre Dame puts on an amazing Thanksgiving feast for $5.00 a person and we decided to try it. We went with some of our close friends and had an wonderful meal. There were bouquets of flowers and tablecloths and plates. They had tables of desserts and breads and turnkey with all the trimmings. Really it was wonderful. Not quite the same as being with Family, but if you can't have family this wasn't bad.
On Saturday we made our way to Kokomo Indiana, (we passed the cities of Miami, Mexico, and Peru all in Indiana to get there). We met up with an old friend and his wife and daughter. Devin and Mike were roommates in Spain so we were all great friends. It was great to see you Mike.

Girl Clothes

A girl in the village just brought us over 20 onsies and 20 sleepers all 0-3 months for a little girl, people are so nice here. Naomi was soooo excited to go through them and have a whole pile of pink and a whole pile of purple clothes! Yea for little girls.

Having fun

Spencer being a boy just loves to throw balls, we used to play iwth a bunch of golf balls Devin had hanging around. However he is getting such a good arm, we have to hide those ones and just use tennis or toy balls.
