Blessings In Heaven

As some of you know, I am the Primary President in our ward. For those of you that aren't members of our church, that means I am responsible for all the children ages 18 months to up to 12 years. There are a lot of wonderful people that run their individual classes, but there is still a lot that my Presidency and I do. Today I was creating CD labels and burning CDs of songs for our Primary Program we do each year. I went ahead and let the girls draw which is not unusual for them. Unfortunately yesterday I let them put on some makeup and they combined the two activities into one. Ella told me it was camouflage. Ella was also smart enough to get out the baby wipes and clean as soon as she drew. Sometimes I feel like I just can't get ahead between running the house, working, spending quality time with the girls as well as my church responsibilities. When I feel overwhelmed I try to remember that I am gathering blessings in heaven. And someday it will be funny......not today but maybe tomorrow. Looks like we will be hanging out in the house today.

Wow G...I didn't know you were Primary Pres! Sounds tough! I hope you get a LOT of blessings.
Great pics...sorry I haven't been on here for a while. The girls look so cute and sorry that I missed telling Tom "Happy Birthday!" Glad I'm not as old as he is...well, not just yet!
Have a great week!

Primary President is such a busy calling...but I am sure you are absolutely wonderful in that capacity and that the kids love you!!! That is such a cute picture of your girls. And yes, you will be laughing about this later! :)

they look beautiful, what little girl hasn't drawn all over her face? Although I know how you feel as a mother.....probably how I feel when Ike has slathered his entire body in mud from the garden in the 2.5 seconds my head was turned.
