Things that make me smile!

This is nothing new or earth shattering, just a couple of cute pictures and things that I thought were important to me. I had been thinking of things that make me happy the other day. Our lives are really busy and crazy right now, but I know that I need to remember the small and seemingly unimportant things that make life great. I read an article in the Ensign a while ago, about not sweating the small stuff and not freaking out when things go wrong, because they will. That got me thinking about what makes me happy and how I need to relax about things a little bit. So here is a list of a few things that make me smile:

* Sami wanting Christmas songs sung to her in July, and the fact that she sings to herself on the potty!

* Ava When she give her "pat-pats" (This is when she gives you a hug and pats your back at the same time, too cute!)

* Easton wanting peanut butter on his pancakes. My grandma Skidmore did this when I was younger and I thought she was so strange!

*Austin having to have popcorn and apples when he watches movies just like grandma Mary.

*Having a handy man for a husband. After the disposal, dryer, and the van broke all in one week he was not going to pay one more person to fix something, then the washer broke two days later. Needless to say 1 week and $40 later, we had a fixed washer. He is the man!

*Sami when she calls me "Mama Jo Jo." I have no idea where it came from or why it makes me laugh, but it does.

*Watching Matt perform wrestle mania with the kids.

*Sami talking about going to visit Grandpa Mel so he can read books to her.

There are countless more, these are just a few. I have the greatest husband and four wonderful kids, even through all of the meltdowns and tantrums I still love them!

So cute. It's true, it's the little things that mean most.
