Hi friends
I thought I'd share something cool that I have been enjoying recently. Since Tammy's accidents, I have started using a essential oils. For Tammy, I use, daily, frankensense and lavender and so far, she has become much happier and what seems to me, more motivated. I also recently had a cold that was rapidly turning into a sinus infection. I could feel it creeping into my forehead from my nasal sinuses and i started to use lavender and eucalyptus oils and I got over it in a couple of days and I wasn't miserable, sick but not miserable for those days. My girls also had the same cold and have gotten over it with the same oils, granted they don't really enjoy the smell of either of those oils but they do love the back massages I've given them with the oils. They are wonderful! I have done lots of research on doTerra essential oils and realized that there are tons of oils for all sorts of ailments. From weight loss to depression, sleep aids and antiinflammatory, muscle tightness and so on. Email me if you have an interest in having oils in your home! I love them!

I'm a slacker

I recently visited with a friend of mine that had some great insight for me, a great example of perserverance and news that she keeps up on my blog which I haven't updated in a long time. Well, here you go dear friend, and thank you for your visit and love. You are truly an amazing woman! Jerusha's birthday is coming up and she is so excited. Yesterday she informed me that she was already 4. I think she's way excited about being 4 and the party part is, while exciting, she can already hold up 4 fingers so, who cares, right? She also had a conversation with one of her primary teachers today that makes me smile. The conversation went something like this (while on the way to the bathroom) Jerusha: "Teacher, have you seen Heavenly Father?"  Her teacher: "Not in a long time." Jerusha: "I saw Heavenly Father yesterday. We played.  He is big." Her teacher wasn't sure what to say to that. Oh to be like a little child again! Mallorie is just crazy as ever now. She picks on Jerusha and Jerusha dishes it right back. She's become tons more snuggly than she used to be and wow, her face is animated. She loves Tammy and keeps a distance at the same time. Tammy, well, is much happier that she used to be. She loves to smile and giggle and be held. Oh the patience children teach!
James and I are, well, just trying to keep up with the girls. They are crazy and fun all at the same time and we just like to bask in their light! Well, good night world! Sleep tight and dream of spring time! I can't wait!
