7th Birthday & 9th Anniversary & Mothers Day

On May 3rd Gracie turned 17 years old, oh I mean 7 years old. She is growing so big way to fast. For her birthday she was able to pick out her own outfit instead of mom doing it and surprising her. She also got to choose where she wanted to eat for her birthday dinner and of course Gracie loves steak so Sizzler was her place. She wanted to invite her best friend from school to come and enjoy her birthday dinner, cake and ice cream. She is definitely our little princes and we love her so much.

On May 4th Rory and I celebrated our 9th wedding anniversary. It has been a wonderful nine years to a great man. I'm glad the lord knew what he was doing when he put us together. I have been blessed to be his wife and best friend. I have been told so many times how lucky I am to be married to him and I fully agree with all my heart I got the better part of this deal :). Rory surprised me with roses and we got to enjoy a quiet dinner together (this means no kids) it was so nice. Thanks to the Brown family for watching our kids.

Mothers day was awesome. I got to spend the weekend with my family and my parents. Dad and mom came on Friday and spent the afternoon with the kids and I. We went to the local Nursery and got plants for our garden. After we got home Dad and I decided to go get some "good dirt" to put in our garden area. Saturday Rory, Lucas and I started working on our garden area and got it all ready for planting. While Jane, Mom and I went out to lunch and shopping Rory and the kids planted the tomatoes and peppers. Thank you mom and dad for taking good care of us and loving us so much. Mothers day was a little bit more stressful for me because it is on Sunday but it was still great. Rory made dinner, took care of the kids and cleaned everything up so that I could take a great nap. If you know me at all naps are what I look forward to on Sunday but these really don't happen any more since I've become Primary President, but that's just the way it goes. Over all it was a busy week but a great week.
