Mother's Day Weekend

Friday evening I thankfully found a babysitter. One of the young women in our ward. Trent and I had a pretty casual dinner at BJ's and then headed to look at two houses. When Trent tried to take me home before eight I was less than pleased and so we went to dessert and bought a couple of movies. Saturday we drug the kids to all the other houses we had left on my list. It was a long day. We decided to make an offer on our favorite one and found out it was a preforclosure that had to have all offers approved by the bank which could take up to two weeks to be approved and not only that, but that it also had another offer in to the bank already. So Trent will submit our offer this morning with our preapproval letter from the lender and we'll have 2 weeks to wait to find out if we outbid the other offer and if it's been accepted. So in the mean time we'll keep trying to find a backup house. Yuck.
Saturday night my little brother Mark came to our house and we got to call my brother Ted in Madagascar on his mission. It was great to hear his voice! He spoke Malagasy for us which was very cool and had it's own sort of beauty. He sounded well and was definitely loving his time in Madagascar. His 2 years will be up in February. It's been flying by.
Sunday I woke up to a cute little Tucker voice telling me "Happy Mother's Day". Trent gave me a wonderful card, 3 roses (one for each of my children), and a generous gift certificate to Kohl's. It was such a nice little surprise. I had a really enjoyable Mother's Day and I hope all you other Mother's did as well.
Today is my glucose test. I will try to get some pictures of my adorable kids to post tonight or tomorrow.

I'm hoping you get your house. You are right, house hunting sucks after awhile.

Good luck with the glucose test- I still refuse to drink orange sodas because of all of mine.
