Happy New Year

I will have to admit, not chiming in the New Year like I thought I would with my kids but it did turn out for good.
After dinner together we had milk shakes, which is more then a rarity in our house(: We were having fun, then off to watch a movie together(:
Sounds good so far(:
Well, as bed time comes closer and others getting a little bored the "real" fun begins... The twins, at least one whom I will not name knocked all my laundry onto the floor(5 or so loads that had not made there way upstairs yet) which got the ball going. Then the yelling and screaming began oh the fun is now going(and not starting with me( one can hear me so I add to the yelling ( may I mention not a good choice of action which I knew better) OK I wont get into it all but there was wailing, yelling, up sets all around even a punch here and not done by Happy New Year right(:
After I got everyone calmed down including myself I talked to the children first one at a time, shared my feelings and helped see the difference of our choices and we feel in what situations and how we can control ourselves in those situations. Feeling not like the worlds best mom during all the crazies I was hoping I was at least lower on that top 100 worlds morst mom list then near the top.
So then we all head in for family prayer and calmness....I hug and kiss the kids and of course tell them as I do a lot that I love them and the beautiful music of hearing " I love you mommy" from the point of hugs and kisses to walking down the hall(: makes the rest almost go away. Lessons learned by all of us tonight.
Did I mention a lot of the emotions tonight that were shared other then feeling bad about all that happened was, even though knowing daddy will be hopefully home by next weekend, with it being the dawn of a New Year the kids (and I) are missing their daddy sooooooo much. Lots of hugs and kisses and music helped them go to bed(:
I do need to add. Adam my sweet little man, came running down the stairs after all were in bed and handed me a card he made. on one side it said To: mom From: Adam. On the other side he wrote a poem, Roses are red, Violets are blue, all that matters, Is I love you(: Then he had drawn a family picture with all of our names with each person drawn(: I soooooo needed that tonight. Made my night. Another set of hugs and kisses and then he was back to bed(:
A roller coaster of emotions tonight. Maybe I shouldn't post this here but then again, why not. A night in the life of our family. The good the bad and the ugly. Yes we say and do things we regret and hopefully learn from. Boy am I no exception to that. But I can say I love my family so very much and would do anything for my family. They are my life, my world, and I am so grateful for them. I may teach some things and hopefully good things but I learn so much more from our precious children(:
I am so grateful for the gospel in my life, for my Savior and Redeemer. I am so grateful for my many blessings. I am grateful for this new year ahead of us and the wonders it holds(:
I hope and pray you all have a wonderful, happy and healthy New Year(:

Every family needs an "Adam" who seems to know when "Mommy" needs that "extra" lift...That is a keeper journal entry for Adam...
