The random things I've wanted to post about, but just never got around to.

Over the past few months there have been many times that I have thought- "I need to put that on my blog!" This happens either because it makes me laugh, or consumes my life for a moment in time.

Like how this summer the ice cream man would show up at my house at 10:30PM. Creepy? I think yes.



Or this fall when I was seriously being hunted by spiders. They finally got me in my sleep- four times to be exact. I have the scars to prove it. Those darn spiders left me with nasty bites and swollen lymph nodes for a month.

This is an actual icky spider that was living in Will's room. Hate it.

I didn't even mention how the tree in my back yard would literally fill Annie's room with a golden light because the leaves were so vibrant. When the setting sun would hit the tree, Annie's room appeared celestial.

I never even put the picture on here of the group of baby girls that were born in the Heber 7th ward this summer. There were 9 born this year so far- 6 of which were girls and 5 of those girls were born in June and July.

Or how about the fact that my adorable nephew Alex has the biggest newborn hands I have ever seen. They are bigger than Annie's and she is 3 months older than him. He is going to be one handsome man one day.

And then there is my calling: Bear Den Mother. I love it, and I didn't think I would ever say that about scouts. These boys are smart and funny and make my Thursdays much more interesting than they would be otherwise.

And my perfect little Annie- who crossed her legs in the womb, and still does to this day. I can still feel on my abdomen where her little heel would stick out when she would do it.


And then there is Will. He loves his baby sister. My favorite thing is how he always holds her hand when they are in the car together. Never fail. It's how he even sleeps in the car.
It's the little things that I don't want to forget.

That spider is going to give me nightmares! It's funny you said you can still feel where Annie would kick you...I've already completely forgotten what it was like to be pregnant.

I threw up in my mouth a little when I saw that spider picture. Reason #1 for not moving back to Utah. No lie.

Maybe you could forget that spider. He is GROSS! I think it's cool that you are recording those little things that happen each day that are regular happenings but important to remember. I tell myself that my heart takes a picture but I wonder how well I will really remember. Thanks for the reminder.
I love the picture of the babies, and the bear scouts. Been there and done that!

Such a cute post! I'm going to have to agree with the other comments, that spider is SICK!

I love the picture of all the baby girls!
