Happy Mother's Day

I first must wish my beautiful mother a Happy Mother's Day! I wish i was there with you and invading your personal space! I MISS YOU!!! I love you and have confidence in my own journey of motherhood because of you, all you've taught me, and your shining example. Thanks for being the best stay-at-home mom, my voice of reason, shoulder to cry on, steady anchor, lovable sweetikins, and dependent friend. I LOVE YOU!

Last night we celebrated with the m-i-l Julie and detailed her car and brought her a card and pics. It was a good night. 
yes i did put lipstick on Capri and Chase. capri is no surprise but i'm shocked at how easily chase put the lipstick on for the card. good times. 
snapchat proof. 

also while at the andersons i found this gem of ciara- i cannot wait to post it on her facebook on her birthday in a couple weeks!!
she never reads my blog so she will be very surprised!
quite a difference from 14 to 19 years old!

this week has been a tiring week and i have no one to blame but myself. you see every night some anderson cousins and/or siblings came over, played games, watched movies, slept over, or something! every night this week we stayed up PAST midnight. which is stupid since we have a baby (who went to sleep at her usual 830 pm but didn't get the memo that chase was still tired at 830 am. that's life!) i had to be at byu at 730 every morning so i was up even earlier. lovely. but at least we made some hilarious memories. 

we are special!

also this week i got a package of SUNSHINE from shelby!! she comes to utah in two weeks p.s.! 
i feel so much love and support from others lately! god puts people in our path at vital moments! 
i am SOOO excited to see shelby and the kiddos. the package was so sweet and a lot of useful/fun goodies. thank you thank you thank you!!

this week also included a funeral for chase's aunt. the night before, annie and i were roped into leading (moi) and playing (annie of course) the opening and closing hymn. and we performed a musical number "Be Still My Soul" just the two of us.
it was actually really amazing & (even though i was so nervous and am not a professional singer), the Spirit was very much present! It was an intimate moment and I'm glad Annie and I could provide the music. 
even if our children were spent by the end of the day- at least they were cranky together :) i love having twinner babies with my friends. 

well back to the title of this post. it's mother's day. capri and i have been napping a lot today. chase is at work- it's poopy but at least mother's day is normally a good money day since lots of the husbands opt out of cooking and take their families to chuck-a-rama. 
i took this pic after one of our many naps. 
but then this happened. 
hahah classic moment of motherhood captured on camera. the pestering mom trying to document everything her first baby does and the baby has her own agenda- she needs to spit up! 
i am so grateful to be this little one's mom! she is perfection in my eyes and she has taught me so much in just the past 7 months (17 if you include pregnancy- which i most definitely do). I am grateful for our past, present, and future. and i love her OHHHHHH SOOOOO MUCH!!! 
I hope all my babies are as good as capri- i can dream ;) 
being a mother is such a gift!!
