Where is the balance?

I spend several hours everyday either planning for scouts, prepping for scouts, or attending trainings...for scouts. My kids are both screaming for attention, and I have been getting ready for scouts tonight since 6:30 this morning. I know the church has asked me to serve. I know that I am going to learn something from my service, but are my kids learning something too? Are they learning that their mom cares more about scouts than them? Do I just let my whole house go to heck in a hand basket for scouts? Is it wrong to ask to be released? Why would they call someone without any sons, with two children two and under to such a time consuming calling?!? I don't know how much longer I can do this...

Please, if you read this before I take it down leave me advice. I really need it.

Easter 2010 Part II

We had some friends over today for a little lunch/Easter egg hunt. It was so much fun to see how different kids the same age are. Some of the kids were worried about the quantity of eggs, some about the quality (or if they are full of candy), and some were a little worried about making sure that the babies didn't get any. We had so much fun! Thanks to Katelyn, Mack, Ian, and Max for coming to help us party!!

Easter 2010 Part I

Since Easter Sunday is conference Sunday, we decided to dress the girls in their Easter dresses the Sunday before. I am sure I am a little biased, but when my girls aren't busy crying, the are just the most beautiful girls anywhere!

Seize the day...hug your kids! Part II - Pictures

How sad are these?!?
