Just a fun moment I wanted to share with you…. I sure do love this baby girl. I just love how she holds her hands when she sleeps and while she is awake for that matter :) .

The crash that almost happenedFeeling blessed…in a split second the car in front of me slams in its brakes. I then slam on mine, stopping just short of slamming into it. I then look up in my rear view mirror to see a large utility truck coming at me full speed from behind. He was talking on the phone…. Slams on his brakes but there is no time he’s going to fast. I see my sweet Maveric sitting in the back with the truck coming right at him. With just inches to spare the truck takes a sharp turn and goes into the field to avoid smashing us. I was shaking so bad I could hardly breath. So grateful we are safe… The sound of locked brakes is going to haunt me for a while. Maveric had no idea what was going on… Once we parked he wanted to know why we were just sitting there. I told him Mom needed to say a prayer and thank Heavenly Father for keeping us safe today. He then looks at me…. OK but after the prayer can I go home and play Xbox.

Sisters a couple of nuts off the same tree

Both my sisters live further away that I like, one lives in North Dakota and the other lives in Ashton, Idaho.  But this weekend I got to spend a day with both of them together.  We didn’t do anything to grand or exciting, we just spent time together, giggled, laughed and enjoyed watching our kids play together.  But it was awesome. It felt like home…. it made me feel safe and happy.  I am so very blessed to have sisters who love me, understand me and are still my best friends after all these years.

It has been a long time since we have taken the time to take a “sister photo”….. But I asked my sisters to take one.  None of us looked “perfect” but I told them in 40 years we won’t care what we looked like, we will just be happy we took the photo.  My older sister had been up with her new baby much of the night (she is one month old) and had been packing all all… no makeup and felt exhausted.  My little sister was all done up cute as always, but she is 5 months pregnant.  Me ,well my hair was a mess, no makeup and I still have a good 20 lbs of baby weight hanging on since my baby is only 4 months old.   But I absolutely love the photos, it will be a fun way to remember our day together… and help me remember we need to have a “girls day” again, real soon. sisters

Babies dressed like bugs, playing dress up with out cute little babiesMy sister just had her 7th baby and I just had my 5th… but we have never had babies within the same year before.  So having two little ones so close together is a new experience for us.  Our babies are only 2 months apart and I am absolutely loving spending time with her and her new baby girl. I know the older I get the more I enjoy and cherish my kids being little, and I think the same is true for her.  This weekend we decided to play dress up with our girls, just like we did with our dolls when we were little girls.Babies dressed like bugs, playing dress up with out cute little babiesMy mom crocheted these fun little bug outfits a few years ago.  My baby girl got to be the bumble bee and my sisters daughter was the lady bug.  I just love their little round bellies and cute chubby arms and legs. Even when they start to cry they are simply adorable. Babies dressed like bugs, playing dress up with out cute little babies

Once upon a time, my sweet little girls told me that MAGGOTS were falling from the sky… I did not believe them at first.  Watch the video to see for yourself…. yikes.
