he is my cousin and the closest thing to caleb here and i love him oodles. especially how he kissed me on the mouth this weekend and it was unexpected. hahaha.
and how i riled him up and put him in a super hyper hyper mood and then he got yelled at by mom-weekend-lauryn since his parents are out sailing the world on a yacht being fabulous! he was so hyper. bouncing off the walls and being obnoxious. it was totally my fault. he got in trouble. i felt bad but he wasn't hurt. hahaha. i love jackson- he is my best snuggle bug!!!
also. this is exhibit A on how good baby is at spreading her germs. aka. 13 people in utah (that i know of) got sick becuase of this. we share my water all the time..... and she backwashes big time!!!
SO guilty!! so dang cutely perfect!
spent a good amount of time with my andersons like always- thanksfully ciara didn't jump on me in rem sleep this time. i thank you :) you are growing up into a beauty queen babelicious!!! once the boys catch up to your growth spurting crazy height- you will be unstoppable!! xoxox ci ci!
ps also i had a magical movie moment when helping them move.
i was up on the trailer strapping down the couches and recliner because we were just about to leave and be done for the day. i'm up there, using all my weight to tighten the bungee chord, and SNAP!!! as i'm leaning back pulling- the chords snaps and i tumble to the concrete. but geoff literally catches me in the perfect baby cradle as i plummet to my death. it was a movie moment! thanks geoffrey. hahaha. they are moved out- but next week we move them in to their new place :) more adventures then i'm sure.
i feel very happy today- espeically happy. many reasons. church was great even though my eyelids were drooping the whole time- 9 oclock church is early- even though i wake up that early on normal days- church just makes the sun brighter when you walk out for church.
today was primary program day up in slc valley at the cousins'
jackson- see above pic- did so good and little kids are always so hilarious and entertaining when you put them at the pulpit.)
when they were singing (AKA SHOUTING) about the martyrdom of joseph smith, our whole pew was stifling laughter and trying to not be mortified at them belting about death not conquering!
third hours felt wasteful because they were talking about their wards' safety plans in case of an earthquake or something and who they would call. that's what i get for not going to my own ward i suppose. but lauryn tickled my back and dallin's back all of church- i'm such a third wheel!
i think i feel so happy because i have stability. i've had it for the past two years- it doesn't make sense considering how horrifying some things have been (i'm a planner and my plans haven't gone so smoothly) but i've really learned these last two years to NEVER turn your back on the gospel, hope, and the Lord. that's true stability. i'm proved to myself that i can be trusted and the Lord can trust me- when you lose that trust in yourself and you feel the Lord doesn't trusts you-that's no bueno. but these past couple years.....it's been a good growing time for me!
i'm all grown up for chase :)
