The Armor of God

We’re visiting St. George this weekend and always love attending a different ward.  Even after a terrible night of kids waking, hubby with allergies, hardly able to get some real sleep we somehow managed to crawl out of the house and get to church!  I really honestly still wonder how or why that happened.  I’m notorious for ditching church any Sunday we aren’t attending our home ward!

The boys wore their matching purple ties and were completely surprised to see that Grandpa Cox also had a purple tie!  They got quite a few compliments!

Mikey insisted we go back to the primary room after church so he could pick up his shield! 

Well, apparently the presidency made enough shields for each primary kid so here’s Mikey sporting his new favorite dress up attire!  Don’t you love when people go above and beyond the call of duty to serve?  I guess I needed a little lesson to make sure I’m always putting in 100% and doing all I can!

Happy Mother’s Day

Mine was nice, relaxing, carefree, and with family.  Does it get any better?  And my kids pretty much did what they wanted without any reservation!  Whatever makes us happy, right?  Here’s Josh’s choice of after church attire:

I'll wear what I want to wear!

I love the one sock on and one sock off! 

The boys made me homemade Mother’s Day cards and Josh was so excited to tell me about his.  “It says I Love Daddy!” he proudly proclaimed!  We couldn’t help but to laugh.  Mikey drew me a nice big rainbow using ROYGBV (he recently learned that to help him remember the rainbow color order) and he gave me a learn and grow kid kit from Lowe’s that’s a flower container.  The boys and daddy used their new real tools in small kid sizes to hammer in the nails and assemble the really cute flower container.  Then they painted it every shade on top of the previous so it slightly resembles grey and black, but it’s cute and made with love!
