Welcome home to me!

So for the past week I've been in Sacramento, California visiting my dearest friend Courtney Roskelley! She had a baby 3 weeks ago, so I wanted to go see her, the cute little Sam, and help her with things around the house while she recuperates. It was such a fun trip. I was able to stay up late with him, and have him sleep next to me to let Courtney and Blake sleep, and it was awesome! He's such a sweet little baby!

Well this post isn't about my trip.. maybe I'll get to that one day... :/ This is about my homecoming........

So yes, I was gone 6 days. Leaving Jeff to everything. What an angel. Well, with the help of a few friends, a couple of sisters, and my mother. I missed Cohen and Molly so much. SOOO much. I have NEVER been away from Molly for more than a night... so that was especially hard for me.

When I landed in Portland, I BOLTED through the terminal. With a huge smile on my face the whole way. I walk by security, and I see Jeff with Molly on his shoulders, and Cohen's head. And then, it comes....

"MOMMY!!!!!!! It's Mommy!!!!" And Cohen ran through the crowd and jumped in my arms. I instantly started crying. Then he says, "I missed you Mama!" Everyone around us is oooohing and awwwing. Molly was a little high for me wrap her in my arms, but her face was priceless. Smiling, and laughing! It was just perfect. I couldn't have dreamt up a better homecoming.

And it was one I never want to forget.

Sweet prayer, from a sweet boy

Tonight while putting the kids to bed, Cohen wasn't cooperating very well during story time, song, and then prayer due to the fact that he couldn't find his Francesco mini car (from the movie Cars 2). Finally, since he wasn't giving up on it, I told him to ask Heavenly Father in his prayer, to help him find his Francesco car. I explained all that to him. Then he said, "Oh, Ok!" So we knelt at his bed, and usually he fights me on who says the prayer, so I told him that he had to say it, since he wanted to ask Heavenly Father for help. He then begins his prayer....

"Dear Heavenly Father, Where's Francesco??"

It was just so sweet. And sadly, we did not find his little teeny tiny car. Hopefully in the morning We'll have better luck.

Oh I love him.
