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."

Marianne is a hoot these days,

Look what we found in the toliet the other day . . . hmmm. . ..
And she loves playing with my jewelry box.

She is also picking up a lot of words these days :
All Done (All-Dee), rough, rough, rough
Quack, quack,
Moo, moo
She loves animal sounds right now.
She tries to say Spencer; it usually comes out: Beber

She is really stubborn, especially when it comes to food, she has major sweet tooth, and doesn't want to eat the healthy food for dinner just yummy food.

She is determined to use a fork these days
She is a great little walker
She loves being outside
She loves her blanket and her pacifier

Spencer Turned 3 a few weeks ago and we had an awesome Pirate Birthday Party! Thanks for everyone who came! At the end of the party my dad who was dressed as a pirate took the kids on a treasure hunt (walk 50 paces this way . . . ) and found a tresure chest shaped pinata, which had Gold Coins in it. It was a big hit!

With Grandma! Grandpa, Katie and Grandma all came down for the weekend and got tocome for the weekend.
