Good days.

Today was the first day in a about a week that I've felt back to my normal self. The boys caught a little cold, which means I caught it, which means B caught it. Unfortunately, it seems I got hit the worst and I was down over the whole 4th of July weekend. Super bummed, especially since B took that Friday off of work. On top of that, the stress of buying and moving to a new home has me going bonkers. was nice.

Around noon, the doorbell rang and one of the most wonderful ladies was on our doorstep-Joyce Stay! Joyce and her husband Larry are currently serving as mission president in Guatemala and it's their house that we've been living in for the past 2 years. Some of the wisest, most humble people I've ever met. I remember the first night we slept in their house and I felt safe, peaceful, and comfortable. And I remember the thought coming into my head "The Spirit is so strong here. I want to keep it that way."

(B, me, Joyce's daughter Cesia, Finn, Joyce, and Liam) 
P.S. Awful picture of me and Liam's not looking, but I'm choosing not to care because I love this picture and these people.

We had a chance to chat for a minute about the work they're doing in Guatemala, our new house, the babes, and their son's wedding on Tuesday. Such lovely women. I love me some Stays! 

Later tonight, we took the children to the grocery store and then remembered FREE slurpees at 7Eleven. We set the babes in their highchairs, stripped their clothes, and let them have a taste. Do you think they enjoyed it? 

After, we gave sticky babies baths, put on some pjs and killed another 45 minutes with some family dance time. I don't know what it is, but when B dances I just fall in love with him all over again. Love me some dancing B. 

I'm looking out my window and the sun is setting. The birds are quiet and my children are "trying" to fall asleep. I am contemplative and saying a little prayer of thanks for a good day. We need those every once in a while, right?
