Ups and downs

UP: Elodie's hugs and repetition of, "I love you, Mommy. You're da best."

DOWN: Calling Life Insurance and having them tell me they won't even answer a simple yes or no question because I'm not my husband

UP: Going to the temple

DOWN: Pumping

UP: Studying the scriptures from about 1:00am-2:30am

DOWN; The stuffy head and raw nose feeling from crying at random intervals

UP: Funny kids. Speaking of ups and downs, Xander has expressed his dismay at me at least three times this morning for wearing my hair up instead of down.
X: Mom, why are you wearing your hair in a ponytail? I want it down.
Me: Because I didn't take a shower today.
X: Then you should take a shower.

Dear Monette and Aaron,
Oh, how we love you and hope you know that you are even more in our thoughts and prayers. What a choice spirit to only have needed to come and get a body, be loved by his wonderful family, and then go home. Such a great trial for all of you. We're putting your names on the temple roll at the Draper Temple this afternoon. Much, much love! Aunt LLee and Uncle Kent
