It's big.

 Let's chat today! (Click on photo)

Did you know there was such a thing as "The Worlds Largest Gummy Worm"?
Well yes there is, and the boys saved their money and bought one.
It came in the mail today, they screamed, nibbled it, 
and now they are displaying it on
the kitchen counter appropriately next to the oranges.
It's definitely more of a novelty than for consumption since they have been 
slapping each other with it, holding it (with after-school-hands), 
and letting Lottie lick it over and over again.
Good times here at my house.

 3 pounds, 26 inches long, 5 inches around, and 4,000 calories...
yes, I typed that right.

It's a tradition for us to go to Utah Lake in the middle of Winter
and explore the frozen water and area.
It's very mystical and calm.  
We love to walk far out on the ice very quietly.
This trip however, was a little less calm since Oliver slipped
 through the ice into water about 100 feet from the shoreline.
We all freaked out for about 20 seconds, and then began laughing hysterically.  
It certainly cut our playtime short since he was frozen to his waist. 
Not that I can complain.  I was freezing.
We were all in our comfies (aka: pajamas), so not really 
prepared for a winter adventure- but it was wonderful just the same.

I {heart} Nurses

I was honored to share some thoughts to the 
 Utah Student Nurses Association last Saturday.
I was such a joy to share my love and appreciation to the 
nurses in my life who challenged me, helped me become stronger, 
fight for me and with me, and nudge me forward on my darkest days.  
We are tougher than we think, and if we desire to be strong and happy, 
we can achieve that even among the worst of situations.
We are great people of strength and passion, and that will carry us 
on the days we find most difficult, those moments have changes my life 
and I continue to carry on, to strive for better and all the while 
becoming a wiser mother and woman.  
At least I hope.
