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.
