So cute! We LOVED your Christmas card. So funny! I can't believe you do all that in one day. Oh my gosh. I guess you'll have to slap me if I ever complain about hard times with my ONE baby.

OK!! After reading that I am not a good Mom. I don't know that I can find that many postive things. I guess I better work on it. I love your family.

Well, while I was typing the post up, Aiden and Andrew got into Jill's ribbon (sorry Jill) and strung it all over the craft room. I was so mad I almost deleted all the good things off the post! And Jody, I definately don't do it with a smile always on my face.

Heidi - You joker. You are a good mom. If you had a blog it would read something like this: made 50 presents for the neighbors, 1 Disneyland in the basement, played Secret Santa, randomly purchased a cute gift for a sister just because you thought she'd like it, 4 friends over for the boys to play with, 6 dozen sugar cookies letting the boys cut them out and frost them (not worrying about getting the cookie cutter right on the edge to use all the space), 1organized christmas present for the folks, 10 darling cookie trays with yummy treats, 5 calls to family just to see how they're doing (how the exboyfriend situation is, how long days at work are going, how life is in NY, and life in St. George), 1 North Pole located on Cherry Blosom dr., 2 happy boys who love their mom and think the world of her, 1 lucky husband who is blessed with an amazing wife, and 1 happy family, neighborhood, sister, sibling all because you are a good mom.
