Let's hear it for the GIRLS!

Every so often in my ward we have a girl's night. Now, this is not your ordinary girl's night. We don't go out to dinner while the husbands watch the kids (although the latter part is true); instead, we come out when it gets dark outside... and consequently some of us don't get home until it is almost light outside. Last night we stayed up talking (way too loud), and giggling (way to often) until 4:15 AM. Are we crazy? Yes. Do our husbands get mad at us? Well, mine gets annoyed- I guess I wouldn't call it mad. Do we regret staying out that late while we are lying incapacitated on the couch trying to entertain our toddlers with mindless cartoons while we attempt to catch just 5 more minutes of shut-eye? NEVER.

I am so blessed to live among some of the most amazing women! They can cook, clean, shovel gravel, throw incredible parties, mow lawns with children strapped to their chests in a baby bjorn, serve their neighbors without being asked, teach life skills, sing, and play the guitar (and some of them can do all of these at the same time- you know who you are!) Not only this, but they are all amazing friends and examples of Jesus Christ.

I love you girls! Thanks for making my life so rich.
(Not to mention FUN).
