happy mothers day!

I read a book and it did not turn out how I thought it would. 

Its a modern romance and so usually there's cheating and stuff and the moral of the story usually is  something like "do what's best for you" and "if you're in love that's all that matters". 

Well, the moral of this story was; the closer your desires are to doing whats right, the happier you will be.

I was so caught off guard! haha At the end of the story the main character decided to not chase the girl. He went back to his son and married the mother of his child.

Basically; make good choices and you will be happy! So simple!

Anyways! I'm gonna try and keep it simple! Just do what's right, right?

The last few weeks have been a little rough! Since having my last baby I've had anxiety. It's usually in the mornings in bed when I think of all the things I need to do that day. And all the things that won't get done. When everyone is just waking up and needs something at the same time. Or in the car when everyone is fighting and screaming. And when every surface in my house is covered with dirty dishes, clothes, toys...etc. I guess at times when I feel like there is no possible way for me to come out on top. Like I'll never be able to be successful in the situation because something is always lacking.
Something that has really helped is to pray in the morning; to ask Heavenly Father to be able to get done what he would have me do today.
Also if I get good one on one time with the kids I feel happy.
I've been "trying" to go running in the morning before they wake up so I get some "me time" in.
I use oils to help with the anxiety as well.

What have you guys found to help deal with your everyday crazy life?? Like I know we're supposed to "dance in the rain" haha but sometimes you just can't!

P.S. We have a garden! I've always wanted to be a garden family! I kind of doubted we would because it takes effort and time and stuff but hey look at us! 

P.S.S.- Graham, Maxwell and Sadie's birthdays are next week!! Any ideas on how to have a giant birthday party for really inexpensive that makes each child feel loved and special? Let me know all your ideas!

never complain on a public forum

Never complain on a public forum. There was a rough time a few weeks ago when I did state that I "hate minivans". Basically every person who I'm friends with on Facebook that I talk to in real life asks me how I like my minivan and I have to eat my words every time. Because yes, I do love it now. I publicly renounce my previous comment about hating mini vans. I do in fact "love them".

I'm also glad I paid for Graham to take karate classes. He is little more violent but his facial expressions make it worth it.

I also had 3 cookies yesterday. I just feel like I should get it all out there. And 2 diet cokes.

crazy, little, evil-ninjas

The craziest thing happens when I take a shower; these crazy, little, evil-ninjas come and destroy my house!

"Isn't it funny how day by day, nothing changes, but when you look back, everything is different?" -C.S. Lewis

Today was a wonderful day.

Church with children is crazy. I literally feel crazy.
These are the crazy things:

-Dressing everyone
-Feeding everyone
-Getting them dressed again because they got food all over their clothes
-Loading them in the car
-Unloading them from the car
-Telling them not to run
-Telling them not to yell
-Finding a seat to sit
-Having them sit quietly (ha)
-5 minutes after they sit taking them all to the bathroom
-Trying to listen myself to the speakers

This is the great thing about church; taking the kids to primary. I look forward to sitting by myself for two hours and thinking about myself; where I need to do better and how to strengthen my relationship with the Savior.
Our lessons in Sunday school have been about the life of the Savior. I love it. I love learning about His life here on earth.
Relief Society was about repentance. Repentance is a message of hope! I always need that! It's amazing to think that the Savior paid for all of us. So that we can repent and try again. Everyday!
I needed that message today.

My kids have THE best primary teachers. Im so amazed by how much they are learning. Such a blessing!

Amron had meetings after church so the kids and I went how and had lunch. True is eating sweet potatoes (he is a sweet potato). He loves them. Max only wants to eat Mac and Cheese.
After lunch True took a nap. Graham, Max, Sadie and I snuggled and watched church movies.

In the evening I got to spend time with my friend and her sweet family! She has twin boys who are eleven weeks! She's amazing. I know moms are blessed with a special kind of love. An overpowering love. A love that can over come long nights and early mornings. A love that is greater than ourselves.

Tonight, as I tucked my little crazies into bed I took a few pictures. Our house is far from pinterest worthy. But there's something special I have been feeling lately in my home; peace. I love being a mom and am so grateful the Lord trusts me with these guys.

I'm such an unorganized person! I'm trying to clean up a little before bed, lay the kids clothes out and make my plan for the next day before I got to sleep! Wish me luck.

"build therefore your own world..."

Hey! I feel like I just needed to check in and say; I'm still here. We're chugging' along, singing' our song.... Just kidding.

Update; My baby is 7 months!!! AHH If you have not seen him you are missing out! He keeps getting redder and fatter! Isn't that that goal, really? Graham, Maxwell, and Sadie have birthdays next month. They'll be 6, 4 and 4!

Isn't this beautiful?!?! I can't stop thinking about this picture and quote together.
I've been thinking about this a lot lately. I've been so blessed to be raised and instilled with the concept that I'm in charge of my life and if I'm not happy with something I can change it.

That's such an empowering idea! We can in actuality build our world!!

Mine is something like this: babies, diet coke, Mexico, essential oils, the sweet tooth fairy, and over active thyroid.

Also it's spring! I want to decorate my house!! And quilt! We've been at the park for hours the last few days. Arizona is wonderful this time of year!

Hope things are going great! 

P.S.-Last week, for a day, I quit diet coke. 
Rough day! Won't be doing that again soon.
P.S.S. I really could quit at any time. Just looking for the right time.
 P.S.S.S. I love doterra.
P.S.S.S.S So, so excited for my Sunday nap tomorrow.
