"The Savior emphasized the importance of keeping records. And one of the most valuable records is the one you keep of your own life." Spencer W. Kimball

This picture is from Easter 2009...And this one is from Easter 2010.
I just looked through some pictures from this last year and I can't stop crying. I don't like that my baby is now a little girl! I love the new things she can do and the personality that shines through but I miss that baby stage too! It's a good thing I'll have another soon.

Strawberry Jam

Last week, I found strawberries for a good deal and decided I wanted to learn how to make strawberry jam. I was surprised at how easy it was.
My Little Helper
Desi loves to put on her apron and help in the kitchen!
Pure sweetness! (Thanks Mom for the help!)

Poor Desi

Desi had a bad day two weeks ago! First, I had her ears pierced. I felt horrible because she cried but even worse, I think it was worth it! They are so cute! I had thought about it off and on and Tom actually really wanted me to do it. Weird, huh? Well, that night I went to Old Navy with Erin, Maggie and Desi. And being the carefree or should I say careless mother that I am, I let Desi stand in the cart. She's done this tons before and never had a problem because she screams when I belt her in. We were headed to the checkout when I stopped to look at the baby swimsuits and show one to Erin. BAM! You guessed it...Desi had tried to climb out of the cart and fallen on the floor. (I should have known better especially because she had been trying to climb everything for a few days.) The following pictures will show you what can happen if you don't follow those instructions on the cart! She must have smacked her forehead on the metal bar and somehow flipped over because she was on her back. An Old Navy employee took down my information so she could fill out an accident report form and gave Desi an ice pack and sucker. Oh man, what a day!
