School Sing-a-long

How fun! I love Kaden's school. They are having a big sing-a-long for the holiday's tomorrow morning but the afternoon kindergarten class wouldn't be able to sing so the principal had a mini sing-a-long and Kaden got to perform. I loved it. They did so good. Kaden in on the top row in the middle wearing a Santa hat. Go Kaden!

Start the Holidays right...

They have this tradition out here in Eagle Mountain called Santa on a firetruck. Cute idea, right? I always thought it was, but then it happened. They tell you on the flyer that it's from 8am till done. What does that mean? Well, the first year we were here it came at 8:04am and we missed it, the kids were sad and I felt bad. The next year they came around 9am so we saw that. This year, the kids waited all morning and didn't want to go to the store cause they were waiting for "Santa" . When Santa finally came, around 11:30am, the firetruck was practically speeding through our neighborhood. Santa didn't even wave at the kids, he just threw some candy and sped away. Is this tradition getting better or worse as the years go on? You tell me. My Mother-in-law told me her son waited 4 hours outside for Santa. It was cold that day!
What a way to start the holiday's, don't you think?

Emma and Sarah's Royal Princess Party!

Ok, my life is complete. Now I know why I love having a little girl. This was so cute. Emma and her cousin Sarah, who are the same age, went together. It was really nice of Mary to get Sarah all ready and looking cute. She is almost done with her pregnancy, about a week and a half I think left, and she hasn't been feeling too great.

Grammy came and we walked around with them while they made there own wands, played princess games, listened to story time and got a picture with Cinderella, and danced with Belle. This was actually a fundraiser for our Stake "Hearts for the Holiday's" Every year our stake gives families that are having a hard time an opportunity to still have a good Christmas. The price to get in was a bag of diapers or wipes per princess. So cute huh? I just couldn't resist.

Kaden's First Day of Kindergarten.... CRY!!!!

Oh, boy! I have been waiting for this for the past 5 1/2 years and now I can't stop it from coming. Kaden couldn't be happier. Me, I miss my boy!
Some people, mainly my sister, think that I am overreacting and being silly about this whole thing and I should be soooo excited to see him leave. I'm sorry, guess I'm not normal.
When he ran into that classroom I could just feel his innocence, childlike, personality melt away leaving room for classmates, teachers and bullies to fill up. I am no longer there to protect, provide and nurture him. I know, I know, Krista it is only 3 hours a day. But still, it's just the beginning.

On a happier note, he is very excited and so I am for him. He is so smart and fun that I am sure he will be just fine. He is going to the new elementary school that was just built in Eagle Mountain and I couldn't be happier about that. The other school I have heard soo many negative things that I don't think I could have let him go. His teacher is awesome, he knows a lot of kids in his class so I am happy.

I Am A Mother!

I am so glad to be a mother! I think it is THE most important job that anybody, every, could do. When I look around and see those that want to choose other things then to do what they were born to do. It breaks my heart.

We are all different mothers. We all have different roles that we need to play in our lives. Some are single moms, some working moms, sometimes your kids drive you so crazy you wish you weren't the mom. We are all different, but we are all the same in our Heavenly Father's eyes and He gave us this huge responsibility that I hope we never take lightly.

Those that rock the cradle, rule the world. I love that quote because it is so true. You as a mother can do so much for our human race. Please know that you are important, your work does matter. And don't let Satan or his helpers make you think any different.

I Am A Mother and I love it!
