My big helper..

Aubrey helped me clean the bathroom yesterday. What a big helper already! Today she's cleaning the leaves out of our rain gutter (I hate climbing ladders). :)

Guess who's walking!

It's true. These last two weeks were big ones for Aubrey. In a few days she went from crawling and cruising around the furniture to taking big steps. On Wed the 6th, I came home from a Temple visit to a smiling little girl in the tub and a proud daddy telling me that she took a lot of steps while I was gone.

Now she is a great walker and all over the place. Great job, Aubrey!

Mommys rock!

I got the best Mother's Day present from my mom. One whole week of us three girls! Ryan was in Washington DC for a GSA conference and so we had the house to ourselves. Lots of Ben and Jerry's, shopping and relaxing. Thanks for coming, mom! We love you!

It's true...God is good.

Now, I love to read other's blogs. It is so fun that I get caught up and don't update my own. I have come across some amazing women out there who are great examples of christlike living in their home. Many of them are of other denominations, and many LDS. Their testimonys of Heavenly Father's love in their lives really has me thinking.

Although, it feels a little unfamiliar when hearing phrases on the other denomination blogs that I don't normally come across in the LDS culture (such as "God is Good, Praise the Lord," etc as opposed to "I am a daughter of my Heavenly Father," "I feel my Savior's love," etc). I have come to enjoy reading blogs of all our fellow sisters.

I find myself more happier, and looking forward to praying to my Father in Heaven and reading scriptures when I feel so many other women honoring Him with their family blogs. So to all you gals out there, great job! You truly are an example to me and I am learning so much from all of you.
