Tonight, as I was putting my darling daughter to bed, I said to her, "Young lady, we love you infinitely." And we really do. Our little family adores that little girl. She makes us all so happy.
Church was today. And on purpose, I missed an appointment with the bishop at 8:20am. After Violet being awake for an hour at 3am, the smoke alarms all chirping and running out of batteries at 4:30am and then Jack thinking it was okay to wake up Van and watch "Karate Kid" at 6:30am- I wasn't about to try and yell at everyone to get them to the church at 8:20am. So I flaked and met with the bish after church. New calling. Enrichment committee.
Sunday is supposed to be a day of rest. And it totally wasn't. I put everyone down for naps and went on a wild cleaning streak. Swept, vacuumed, wiped, dusted and washed. It felt excellent.

Because I am nice.
Today, Van got into the following:

If you ask Van what his name is, he says "Manny".
