Out of the Mouths of Babes

The other day when asked what he wanted for lunch, Grant replied "chicken maggots" (chicken nuggets). Then, last night I sprinkled some baby powder on Nathan after bathtime. When it was Grant's turn to come out, he said, "Mom, put some powdered sugar on my back." I kept a pretty straight face when he said these things, but Ryan and I had a good laugh about it that night. It is so delightful to hear what these kiddos say!

A Visit From Grandma and Grandpa Budge

Grandma and Grandpa Budge came for Sarah's blessing, and they stayed with us for the weekend. We had a lot of fun!

This is Grandpa Budge "eating" the boys' "tasty toes". Grant told his Primary teacher, "Grandpa Budge eats my feet", which naturally raised some questions.

We got to celebrate Grandma budge's birthday a little early, too!

David O. McKay Quote

Here is a great quote for all you mommies out there:

“This ability and willingness properly to rear children...make motherhood the noblest office or calling in the world. She who can paint a masterpiece or write a book that will influence millions deserves the admiration and the plaudits of mankind; but she who rears successfully a family of healthy, beautiful sons and daughters, whose influence will be felt through generations to come, whose immortal souls will exert an influence throughout the ages long after paintings shall have faded, and books and statues shall have decayed or shall have been destroyed, deserves the highest honor that man can give, and the choicest blessings of God. In her high duty and service to humanity, endowing with immortality eternal spirits, she is co-partner with the Creator himself.” (Gospel Ideals, Salt Lake City: Improvement Era, 1953, pp. 453–54.)

Sarah's Blessing Day

We blessed Sarah on Sunday. Nathan and Grant were curious about the fancy dress Sarah was wearing.
Grandma Petersen made the beautiful dress.

Grammy Kimmy made the lovely bracelet.

We're actually all smiling!
