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."

Dear Santa, Love Spencer

"Dear Santa Clause,

I love you Santa Claus, I love your reindeers. I love my presents. Spencer (me) is a good boy this year. I want a big truck and cars going down a racetrack. I want a big hammer and tools like daddy.
Marianne wants a dolly. Her wants a little truck with lights. Marianne is being a good girl this new Year.
Come down the Chimney at Grandma's House."

Love Spencer

Snow and Stuff

Lots happening lately, finishing up crafts, buying and wrapping presents, awhile trying to keep the kids fed, played with a Daddy Studying. Sizemore Party, Spencer was soooo excited to open his present. He kept running over to the tree and saying "I just have to go check on them" and "Do you think it is CANDY!!!!"

We also have fun wiht big boxes around here.

My sister's brother in law who is from Tonga came to the MTC and we got to have lunch with him and wish him well.

We got some snow and then it melted and then it got warm and then today we got some more. So back when we first got some snow this is what we did.

Marianne- 10 Months

Marianne is just about 10 Months, I just can't believe this little girl is growing so fast.

She is 17.3 lbs (35%)
50% for Height and Head
She is a round chubby little thing and has cute rolls on her arms and thighs, I love each one of them, and don't forget her chubby chubby neck and cheeks.

Lets See
Marianne says Mamamamam, and baba, and dada but not too much more
She is army scooting everywhere ( about 4 weeks), and will get on her knees rock back and forth but then go back to sitting. She does this over and over. We keep waiting for a real crawl to come but not yet.
She takes 2 great naps. She eats breakfast and lunch really well but tends to be picky at dinner- doesn't seem to fond of meat and Vegetables, although she does love bananas, bread, peaches, pears, strawberries, etc She will blow raspberries if she doesn't want to eat the food I try to feed her. She loves her bottle

She can sit up in her crib. She loves to take a bath, she loves to splash and plays with toys, She loves it when Spencer is nice to her and will laugh and giggle at him.

She loves her mom, and will raise her arms up for me to pick her up each time I walk into the room. No one else will do, mommy is a special person right now.

I am in love with her as much as she is in love with me. She is just darling, so fun, so cute, I can't imagine life without her! We love you Marianne
