Moms are the best, nuff said.

I am so happy today is Mothers Day! It means me and my family have the opportunity to go all out in buttering up my mom with compliments, gifts and service, and just be straight up cheesy!

I think it's important to recognize how brilliant moms really are. My mom is one of my best friends and I love her very much. She has 11 children, and has fostered more than I can remember! She has continued to learn throughout her life and strive to be the best she can. She is a great example to me for how to live the gospel and how ti be a good person in general. If it weren't for my mom I know I definitely would not be where I am today. She is a source of inspiration and love that cannot be matched. The best part is I know she will always be there for me. Isn't great that families are forever!

Today we let my mom take it easy and we took care of all of my siblings, including feeding them, which is quite an ordeal, and my dad even made awesome steaks for dinner! My grandma even came out to see us which was sweet! My favourite part was my mom opening her gifts. We made her a shirt with all of the kids handprints on it in paint, she put it on right away and was so happy, and then it got better because my little brother made a movie where he asked all the kids why we love our mom and it was just an amazing video! Then we sang some songs, baked desert and watched the Amazing Race finale!

All in all, an amazing day to celebrate the most amazing women in our lives. Again, I love my mom and so thankful for her, I hope you all had a similar day, and just found joy in thinking of how your moms have shaped your lives!

Life in the Mac

Wow! I have been soooo busy! Moving back was definitely not the way I saw it being. I had imagined taking my time, relaxing, taking naps, reading books, hanging out with friends, but then reality came crashing into my face like a cast iron pan in Tangled! Ok but seriously, I started work today, and I actually think it's going to be an amazing job, first of all because I get to work around my dad!! I just really feel good about this one is all I can say. The only downside... waking up at 5:30 again! But on the plus side, I get Friday's off!!

I also helped move my older brother and sister into their new basement suite!! That was... good. Well let me tell you about the struggles. First, my brother and sister had soooooo much stuff, we filled four vehicles, including two trucks!! But that wasn't the worst. So me and my dad load their mattresses in the bed of the truck, and they lean onto the fire extinguisher he had in the bed and then PSHHSPSHSH!!!!!! It managed to press the lever and weird yellow powder followed by stacks of dust flew into the air and over the mattresses and my dad's truck, and everything else around. That took some time to clean, which got me anxious because I wanted to go vote, and we were losing time! Then we had to get the craziest couch out the door! Why are couches so big!! I decided when I build my dream house, the doors will have to be able to fit a couch through, the long way! Anyhow after a great and mighty struggle we were finally able to come free, make it in time to vote, and quickly move everything into their new place! Then my dad treated us to A&W! Awesome. 

So that was day number one, I can't wait to see what else is in store!
