The Best Mother's Day gift EVER!!!

I have finally grown up a bit and realized that Mother's Day is not about being pampered and petted. It is about being grateful for the gift of BEING a mother. So, my expectations of the day do not involve getting great gifts. But, this year, Brigham gave me the most thoughtful, unselfish gift I have ever received. He gave me...wait for it...a "big-huge-Mother's-Day-kid-spanking-stick". He even wanted me to try it out to make sure it worked and volunteered to be the test-y. And, this massive branch you see Hyrum holding is the actual stick. I should have gotten the picture with Brigham, but he is already on the bus, and the stick needs to be removed from the property before someone uses it for a big-huge-house-smashing-stick!

Okay, last thing. The night before Mother's Day, Brigham was saying his prayers, and I wanted to share an excerpt:
"Please help Dad, Joy, Paul and Hyrum to love me as much as I love Mom. I love her so much I don't even throw up on her." That, my friends, is true love!
