Happy! Saaaaaad! Happy!

When my sister Gabrielle was still in college, she and her friend babysat tiny Robin and Paul; we were still in SLC. They taught my kids a game that we called "happy sad".

Here are the rules:

Draw a happy face and then say, "Happy!" as happily as possible while smiling as big as you can.

Draw a sad face and say, "Saaaad." as sad as possible while making the saddest face you can make.

Repeat 1 zillion times; in sacrament meetings, on trains, in the car, on airplanes, waiting in Dr.'s offices, waiting in line at banks . . . etc.

I just found out that Gabby and Ben are expecting another baby and I am so excited for them! That 4 Stanley babies in the next 6 months or so! Wow!

She has posted the the most beautiful stories on this special part of motherhood on her blog. Check it out here.
