Well who will I marry??

So today at dinner Ally informs Ansley that one day she will live with her husband and kids and not Jerry and I.  Her reply to this was "I know, but I am going to marry daddy!"  Very cute indeed but I let her in on a small secret.  "Ansley, daddy is sealed to mommy for eternity.  You will have to find your own husband to take to the temple."
Ansley, "But I want to marry daddy."
Ally, "you can't marry daddy Ansley."
Ansley, "Who will I marry then?"  (Her face is covered in the chocolate pudding we had for dessert, extra cute!)
Me, "I don't know, you will find someone when you get a bit older.  Thankfully you have plenty of time to live with mommy and daddy."
Ansley, smiles :)
It's conversations like these that make being a mom just priceless!!

An interesting scripture study indeed!!

So tonight we were reading in 2 Nephi Chapter 28 with the girls.  When we happened upon verse 21 which talks about how Satan lures people away from the truth and down to hell.
Ally, "Ooohhh, that's a bad word."
Ansley, "Yeah, that's a bad word mommy."
Me, "Well it can be when it's used as a curse but here they are talking about a place.  Hell is a bad, dark place because it is far from the presence of our Heavenly Father.  It's where Satan will spend eternity."
Ansley, "Why?"
Me, "Because he cannot go to Heaven."
Ansley, "Where is he right now?
Me, "He is here on the earth, trying to make us stray from what we know is right.  He is miserable and he wants us to be miserable too!"
Ansley, "Well I am going to hold onto the Iron Rod.  I don't want to go to hell with Satan!"
Me, "me too!!"
Ally, "me three!!"
So we continue on in our reading. 
Quickly we come to a verse talking about Satan again.  To which Ansley blurts out, "Satan lives in Shi_!!  I  continue reading like nothing happened.  Thanking God that Ally missed the comment all together and then put the girls to bed.  I can only image that she remembered he lived in a place that was a BAD word and Shi_! came out instead of hell.  Either way I laughed so hard I cried! (once I got downstairs of course)  I'm telling you I love the ages of 3 and 4.  You just never know what might pop out of their mouths. :)

23 weeks

I am 23 weeks pregnant today.  You are about 11 inches long and weight just over 1 pound.  Crazy because I have already gained 20 lbs, YIKES!! I love that you can hear now.  Hopefully you are getting used to the sound of the vacuum cleaner because I LOVE to vacuum.  I am loving all of the movement and the girls love that my belly is getting bigger.  Ansley is very protective of my belly and is always gently rubbing it.  Tonight Ally read the baby the story You are all my Favorites.  They are going to be great BIG sisters. 

I am definitely suffering from baby brain though.  We had the missionaries over for dinner tonight and I was trying so hard to have everything done early so they wouldn't be late for an appointment.  I was so pleased with myself when dessert was even ready.  That was until I went to take it out of the oven and realized I never turned the oven on.  I did set the timer though!! UGGGGG!!

Sunday March 13, 2011

It was a tiring day indeed due to the fact that my flight landed in Boston at 11:50 pm and we had a 90 minute drive home.  On top of that we sprang forward last night making it a 3am bedtime after a 70 hour work week.  Thankfully Claudette came to the house so Jerry didn't have to get the girls out of bed.  What that meant though was that they were raring to go very early. 

During Sacrament service Ansley talked Andy and Claudette's ears off.  She is so talkative lately.  To entertain her Claudette began showing her pictures from the primary 3 book.  Several comments were too funny not to post.
Picture of the last supper, "Oh it's the last dinner!" 
Map of the world, Ansley "Where do I live?"  Claudette points to the northeast portion of North America.  Where do you live?  Again Claudette points to the northeast portion of North America.  "Oh we live close to each other!"
Last was a picture of a little girl licking an envelope.  Claudette asks Ansley what she thinks is in the envelope.  "LOVE"
