Do You Feel Better?

Last week on Facebook, I made a comment about how reading some people's blogs makes me feel like a crappy mom.  I had one friend say that she sometimes feels like that after reading mine (I think she must have been smokin' somethin'...! jk).  I don't know how many others feel this way- it's never really BAD, I mean, I don't get depressed over it- but sometimes it just makes me sad that I am not more proactive about things, and that I am a little bit (or a lot) more lazy than I'd like. 


Every now and then, I am going to start posting something that will help YOU (whoEVER is reading this) feel better about yourselves.  hahaha... I can't believe I'm going to do this... but guess what?

I AM NOT PERFECT! (hahaha... as if you didn't know)

Saturday was a really rough day for me. I got really mad at Grant A LOT. I was not very good at keeping my calm.  I was also very frustrated with Grant yesterday (Sunday).  I was not as Christ-like as I should have been.  I found myself appologizing to my two year old a lot for my actions and words (mostly words).


Do you feel better?

Love, Rochelle

The Kids Who Stare at Goats

Let's see... quick recap for the last week or so. 
Easter. Conference. Chicago.
That pretty much sums it all up! And here are some pictures to prove it.

Grant was excited for...

...THIS (I'm so awesome)!

Henry got a book. He likes it.

Our friends, the Lindsey's, came over for an Easter Egg Hunt.
Here is Luke and Grant running out to it
(but the hunt was in the grass... not the driveway).
I love this picture.

Grant was just running around, so Henry started to snag some eggs.

Henry was a HUGE fan of Conference- here he is listening.

My older sister and her daughter are in from across the pond (England),
so I went to Chicago to spend some time with them.
This is Holly's daughter, Chloe (with an umlaut).
She and Grant are only 7 months apart, so this is the closest
age difference between him and all HIS cousins.

Chloe is making out with Henry. haha

Grant and Chloe "baking" with Grandma Word.
Chloe put them on the baking sheet, and Grant would eat them.
Can you see him snitchin' it? Don't worry- I taught him that.

Aw. Chloe loves Baby Henry.


Isn't this hat the BEST??

At Lamb's Farm in Lake Bluff. 
This is also

Looking at a bird?

Chloe and the FAVORITE Aunt Scoobies :)

Grant LOVES the goats

Here is Grant saying, "HI! My name is Uniqua!"

This is the last picture before I ran out of memory.
I think he's deciding which goat/sheep he should chase
(and CHASE he did!).
I hope everyone had a WONDERFUL Easter.
I am so grateful for a Savior who has made it possible for me to be where I am.
There is NO WAY I would be able to have the blessings in my life if it weren't for HIM.
He Lives.

I've Got Love

For these crazy kids.

I love that I only got a pic of Grant's eyes and nose.
Kinda like THIS ONE!
Oh Yeah... I fried my ONE arm. Nice.
(And I am not pregnant... just fat! YEAH!)
