Happy Mother's Day!

my little men and I, Mother's Day 2011

Happy Mother's Day to all you Mama's out there! Isn't it great getting little hugs randomly throughout the day from your little ones? I know I sure love the extra lovin'!
Today has been an extremely full day already, especially considering I wasn't in bed until after 12:30am last night. My amazing husband and I spoke in our church this morning (for those of you who don't know, in the LDS church, members of the congregation give the 'sermon' in the form of talks with assigned topics. To find out more about my faith, click here.) which made for a very early morning as well. I was so anxious right up until I stood at the pulpit to speak, and then I calmed down, focused, and delivered my talk. Hopefully it wasn't a complete waste of twenty minutes for those listening!

Then, I headed off to the primary room to conduct sharing time with sixty children. We had so much fun too! In honour of Mother's Day we did a little craft for the kids to give to their moms. I found the craft here, and it was a hit!

 I filled the tins with jujubes, licorice babies, and coconut creme hershey's kisses. Mmmmm, so gooooooood.  I have a few extra tins too - lucky me!
I've popped the roast in the oven, so now the babe and I are going to enjoy a Mother's Day snuggle. And dream of the coconut Crave cupcakes on the menu for dessert...have I mentioned how much I LOVE coconut? And my children? And being a Mama? Life really is wonderful - enjoy it!
