Logan and I about 2 years ago.
Me and my crew these days.
I like blogging in that it keeps a record. My journaling and scrapbook have suffered since being married and having children. Looking back I think I was so wise, why do I have to continually remind myself of these things:
My Simple Thoughts
Thoughts on Motherhood Again
Sometimes I think, my girls are almost 4 months old!? Wow, the time flies and I hate how fast babies grow. And other times I think there is not enough chocolate to endure day to day. Sometimes I think Logan is going through the terrible threes and I get after him all the time. Other times I get to take him on a "kid date" (thanks to Kathy) and it is really fun. I miss it being just him and me.
Sometimes is hard being a mom, but I have been trying to read things that remind me how important and crucial it is to the children. I am trying.
I think Eden and Tessa are so lucky to have each other. Thinking about it, it would have been nice to have a twin-built in best friend- when I was growing up. Lucky them.
I wish my Grandma Wood were still here to help me with this twin thing.
Even though I know I was pretty lucky to have Logan naps as long as I did. I still miss them. I think they are almost officially gone.
If only I had more time, or I didn't have to sleep. I could get more things done. There seems to be so much to do.
Luckily I get to spend my days with a superhero.

I love having girls. I honestly didn't realize how much fun it would be to dress them up. I am doubly lucky because I have two at the same time.
I bore my testimony in Sacrament meeting for the first time in about forever. I feel like I should also bear it here. I feel that I have recently been so blessed by my Heavenly Father, without Him and His son Jesus Christ I would not have made it through the last year. It has been difficult, but I know we are given opportunities and obstacles in this life, and we are only given what we can bear. I know that although it has been difficult, and it will continue to be difficult, there are many reasons I have the experiences I do. The Lord prepares us for the future and to be of service to others. Mostly I am grateful for the tender mercies of the Lord, which to others may be simple and small things, but as I have experiences I know my Heavenly Father is blessing me. It can be something very, very tiny and in these past few months the tender mercies I have received are many, many tiny things hourly, daily, weekly. It has been others put in my path, or the girls doing something seemingly amazing, sleeping during church when at home they wouldn't have, or Logan saying something that couldn't have really come from him to give me comfort when I am having a particularly rough day. I love the gospel and I am lucky to be a part of it. In the name of Jesus Christ.
