A woman in Carolyn's ward was going through for her first time, and Aunt Margaret happened to be her escort. The four of us decided to go do lunch after the session. What a great time we had! Much laughter and smiling (and good food ;) was had by all.
During all that Paul was helping a friend move, so when I was done eating, I picked up my kids and headed to the new homestead. It was nice just hanging with some good friends today too.

Fun fact: I'm about 20 weeks pregnant, which means I should be measuring about 20 cm plus or minus 2. I'm measuring 27. Nice huh. Good to know the babies are growing well! One has also moved so now they're facing each other instead of going opposite directions.
Everything looks good!

I got forwarded this in an e-mail and Paul and I laughed so hard I just HAD to share it. Enjoy. Hope it lightens up your day just a little.
Make sure you read the text under the picture.
Okay so this is how I imagine this conversation went:
Walmart Employee: 'Hello 'dis be Walmarts, how can I help you?'
Customer: ' I would like to order a cake for a going away party this week.'
Walmart Employee: 'What you want on da cake?'
Customer: 'Best Wishes Suzanne' and underneath that 'We will miss you'.
You can't fix stupid

"The healthiest human emotion is not love but gratitude. It actually increases your immunities. It makes you more resistant to stress and less susceptible to illness. People who are grateful are happy. But people who are ungrateful are miserable because nothing makes them happy. They're never satisfied. It's never good enough. So if you cultivate the attitude of gratitude it reduces stress in your life."

I dunno. Fun studio pictures. Don't know how old. I could probably find it, but don't want to right now. Looks to be around similar time as haircut.
