Lest I forget.
Favorite moments from today....
-Emyri with no forewarning nor hesitation walking straight up to the pulpit and retelling her talk from the Primary program for her testimony during testimony meeting: )
-The content and spirited look on her face as she walked back. priceless.
-Getting to sit by Chad during Gospel Doctrines class for the first time in a year. I just got released from my Primary calling. Loved being able to razz him, poke him when needed, and run thoughts past him. Love that kid.
-Sitting back and watching Brin's hyper self after church.
Good night that girl was on one and it was good stuff: ) I should have been filming. She's into cool head gestures, talking in funny slurred hick accents, and saying things like, "rock and roll!", "big daddy", and "tooter-ma-goots".
(The latter being said almost continually in response to anything. It's her catch phrase. In fact, when she randomly called out "tooter-ma-goots" during dinner at Wingers the other night, Em rolled her eyes and blandly said, "Knew that was coming." We do Brin; know it's coming. And we somehow still think it's hilarious every.time. And the best part is you do too.)
-family dog pile on dad turned into "pretend we're on a mountain".
-Baby brother's continual kicking fest on my ribs all day long.
It's no 60 minute spa massage, but I love knowing he's there, moving, living.....working on his field goal kicking.
-Walking in the front door, home from church, to the smell of my very first crock pot roast cooking away.
Mom, it smelled like Sunday: )
-Tonight, eating a grapefruit with sugar sprinkled on top; just the way my old friend Frank would make them for me when I was little and sitting across from him on his rickety two person table.
Loved every bite.
Can't get enough grapefruit nor the memories: )
-Seeing my two girls take a quick break from playing to cuddle on the couch with their daddy while he rested; smiling and thinking to myself, "Their first love really is their daddy."
