People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Give the world your best and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It never was between you and them anyway.
-Mother Teresa

Allie's Blessing

January 8th, 2012
6 weeks old
We blessed Allie in St. George at Jason's mom's ward.  It is more of a central location for our families since we don't have any family in Salt Lake.  
Jason's parents
My mom made this gorgeous blessing dress with a bonnet.  She hand sewed all of this pretty trim around the dress and the bonnet.

I feel bad I didn't take more pictures, but oh well.  The blessing so beautiful.  We had a bunch of family there.  My parents were able to come as well as my brother's family, and of course all of Jason's family including some cousins that we didn't expect to see.  We also had our good friends, the Colvins, there to support us.  We have great family and friends!

Regan: Why isn't Allie wearing the new outfit she had on?
Me: Because she had a blow out.
Regan: What's a blowout?
Me: It's when Allie's poop comes out of her diaper.  See her onesie?  This yellow stuff is her poop.
Regan: At least it's a pretty yellow.  :)

Jason is in the kitchen looking through the spice cupboard and Sophie comes in looking at something.
Sophie: What the?
Jason: (turns to her) What?
Sophie: I said What The.  It's okay daddy, I didn't say what the hell.

6 weeks old
Today we went to Layton to visit some friends that are having triplets.  Crazy stuff.
Regan: Where are we?
Jason: Layton
Regan: Layton rhymes with Satan.
Minute later
Regan: I'm getting nervous because Layton rhymes with Satan.
Oh Regan.  She is too clever for her own good :)

Grunting from Regan.
