Snow, Sleepy baby, and loving being Mom!

We woke this morning to Snow, As many of you probably did. The first thing out of EJ's mouth was Mom I need to play in the snow! I said OK EJ after school. Right after school he was asking again. Reluctantly, I went digging for our tote of winter clothes, he squeeled when I found it and he went out to play in the backyard. That way I could watch him from the warmth of the house. :) He was so cute. He made snow angels, and had a snowball fight with himself for almost an hour. I love that kid he has the best imagination.


Jett has been such a tired boy today, I have found him asleep on the floor twice! Literally he was playing next to me at my feet in his favorite kitchen cupboard, and I looked down and he was asleep on the hard kitchen floor! Poor baby. I wish I could sleep that easily :)


I have found myself being so grateful for being Mom. My kids are at such fun ages right now, and I just want to freeze time some days. I love being a mom. Some days are definately hard, but I love being mom. I love that I am who my kids want when they are hurt, need something, or want to talk. I love that they all want to snuggle and "rocky" with me. I just hope that as they grow our relationship will stay the same. Tonight as we were reading scriptures, and singing songs, I couldn't help but feel how blessed I am to have these three sweet spirits in my home. They definately make me a better person. I only hope I can teach them all I need to. It sure can feel like a daunting task. All in all I love being mom, there is nothing I would rather be doing, and I thank my Father in Heaven for this blessing.

It looks like you got a lot more snow than us! My girls got themselves bundled up and went out to "play" in the snow while I was getting the boys ready for school. I say "play" because they mostly eat the snow.

That snow looks like a lot of fun! I can't believe that Jett can fall asleep like that. My girls don't close their eyes unless they are in their cribs.
