Proud Moment

So, you know those moments as a mother when you realize all of your hard work has paid off--those moments when you look at your child and you are just so proud and delighted at what they have become?  I had one of those moments two weeks ago standing in the hallway of Madison High School.  Jasmine turned around beaming at me . . . holding her volleyball uniform . . . #9 !!!  She didn't even get to choose her number and there she was holding up the best number ever . . . and I had one of the proudest moments ever.  My beautiful daughter in a VOLLEYBALL UNIFORM.  Jasmine was kind of excited about it.  I was a bit more than "kind of excited."  I made her try on the full uniform--spandex, kneepads, socks, shoes and all-- on the way home in our mini-van.  And boy did she look good.  Just wanted to share . . .

. . . Doesn't that just about bring you  to tears???

Ear Piercing

Paisley turned 4 months old on Sunday, the 24th of January.  I took her in for her 4-month shots the following day on Monday, then I knew that there was only one other item of business left--to pierce her ears!  So, on Wednesday January 26th I recruited my sister-in-law Heidi Parker and her daughter Morgan Mae and we went to Idaho Falls to pierce the girls ears together.  It was their first adventure together as cousins and it was so cute!  The babies did really well and they now have adorable matching earrings.
