I'm a big boy now!

Asher is growing up so fast, I can hardly believe it myself. Potty training is coming along. He defiantly understands the concept and feels like a pretty big boy when he goes on his big boy potty. It's a cool Cars convertible potty that you can attach to the big toilet. He really likes going on the toilet. Asher is starting to go more often. I get super excited when he goes and give him good treats. Today he got a bowl of ice cream with his breakfast!! Lol, I know I'm such a great mom ;) He loved that one. I love this next picture because Asher choose this outfit and put it on himself. I was pretty impressed with his fashion style.

 Asher loves to build, fix, and take apart anything. I have a good feeling he is going to be just like his daddy. He loves his blocks!! It's really cute when he builds the blocks into an animal and makes the animal noises and then gives them kisses. I love seeing him imagination come out.

What a stinken cutie! We love him to pieces!!

Our Little Drummer Boy


 Our little drummer boy. This isn't the first time he has tried to do things that are in close relationship with drumming. He set this drum set up himself while I was making Zuppa Toscana. Best recipe in the ENTIRE world. It always impresses your guests every time. 

School is going great for both Thomas and I. I'm so excited to be graduating and spending every second doing my mommy thing. I couldn't ask for anything better and I'm so excited. I'm getting pretty excited about being able to go straight to bed without having to stay up until homework is done. 

Thomas and I went down to Gunnison this weekend and applied for an English Teaching Job at a boarding school there. The guy gave him the job after he is done with school but we have to think a lot about it because it's for kids who are not succeeding in public school. We left Asher with Grandma Lyon and we have a fun 2 days just hanging out with each other. It was actually a incredible couple days. You have to have some of that every once in a while. I got's me some good husband!!! 

We visited Morgan in Ephraim and just loved remembering all of our youthful moments in that fun little town. It was way cute to watch Morgan and his roommates talking about girls and stuff. They asked me if marriage is all it's cracked up to be. I'm like, " It's way more.!!"  "You just gotta be as incredible as Thomas." Lol, they have big shoes to fill.

I am a member of the Chuch of Jesus Chirst of Latter-day Saints

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints! I have had experiences in life when I was personally attacked. At the age of 14 I was verbally attacked by a lady who felt like it was her obligation to save me. It was scary and it hurt a whole bunch, but I stayed calm and got myself out of the situation respectfully. I have heard the saying before, 
"He never said it was going to be easy, he only said it was going to be worth it."
I think it's an anonymous quote. 
I kind of put it into my own words...
He never said it was going to be easy, but I do believe it will all be worth it :D
I was reading this article on KSL
and I really liked Ogukuo's comment:  
Eh, these people are welcome to criticize me all they want. I've never been promised that being LDS would be a cake walk. Quite the contrary. Even Christ Himself was beaten, scourged, and rejected. If we're His followers, why should we expect any different?
I do believe in Christ. Christ was beaten, scourged, rejected and criticized his whole life, then he died for my sins after living a perfect life.
  i have always really liked this quote:
 "Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others"
I believe that we have the responsibility to stand up for our beliefs
I also believe it's important to respect others beliefs, especially when they are different from our own.
