"Begin today and write in it your goings and comings, your deepest thoughts, your achievements and your failures, your associations and your triumphs, your impressions and your testimonies. I promise you that if you will keep your journals and records, they will indeed be a source of great inspiration to you, each other, your children, your grand-children and others throughout the generations. Remember, the Savior chastised those who failed to record important events." --President Spencer W. Kimball

Seusssical.....Dr. Suess Musical

Jalen and Halle invited us to their school play so Marie and I took our girls and headed down to Saratoga Springs to watch them preform.  OMGosh they did an amazing job!!!  It was an elementary school, but it was a high school quality performance.  Seriously, I was kinda blown away with how well put together it was....how awesome their costumes were....how all the kids knew and memorized their parts.  They did an awesome job! 
Jalen and Halle were Who's from Whoville....and they were getting all into it!
Proud Aunty moment!

So glad we took time to go and watch them...what a fun night!
Leslie and her little actresses.....(aren't the costumes so awesome?!)
Group picture!

After the performance, we took the kids to buy some pizza and we took them to Leslie's house to eay and play.  It was Leslie's birthday so Marie and I took her out.  We just went to Kneaders and ate and talked.  We don't get together very often and it was nice to spend time with my sissys!

We were talking about how light our eyes were and how we all got hazel eyes from mom's blue eyes and dad's brown eyes....so we started taking pictures of each other's eyes LOL.  I figured, why not crop them together?!  LOL  Here you go!

Of course we end by exchanging gifts....
We are all so busy with our own lives and kids and we don't really get to spend that much time together....I'm so glad that we take time to make time for each other every year for Mother's Day.  I love my mom and sisters so much!  What a great tradition we have going!
