Like Mother, Like Daughter

So I hate to admit it but my daughter is becoming more of a mini-me every day. Not only do I think she looks more and more like me but she's seriously becoming a clone- and that's a scary thought. The other day she started saying "oh goshhhh!" every time I told her to wait for something she wanted. She totally got that from me. She also grunts and sighs when she's impatient or frustrated about something... again totally from me. Whenever I'm wearing socks she has to wear socks, when I'm wearing flip-flops she has to wear flip flops... even when I put deordorant on she acts like she's putting it on. I'm not trying to boast or brag but she seriously tries to do everything I do. I'm sure this is normal but it's made me very much aware that I need to really be careful about the kind of example I'm setting for her. It makes me think of this scripture from Mosiah 4:30.

"30 But this much I can tell you, that if ye do not watch yourselves, and your thoughts, and your words, and your deeds, and observe the commandments of God, and continue in the faith of what ye have heard concerning the coming of our Lord, even unto the end of your lives, ye must perish. And now, O man, remember, and perish not"
Her cloning me is definitely good for me in applying this scripture to my life!

Yesterday was good. I felt like a good little housewifey. I cleaned, did laundry and prepared a super delicious dinner and dessert for FHE. I made
roast beef with the works and cooked it in the crockpot all day long so the smell filled the house. It brought back so many memories of Sunday dinners with my Willis grandparents. I don't know why but certain foods just make it fill like not only is it filling my home with good smells but with the Spirit. I also made this awesome dessert- I seriously think it's one of the best I've ever made and I'm sure it will be a staple in our home from here on out. They're called
caramel cheesecake bars. They're a lot more work than my normal cake from a box but man are they good! For FHE we watched a really good movie- "We Are Marshall." I know... I kind of took the easy way out but it was a good activity. We seriously never have time to sit down and watch a whole movie together as a family so it was nice to finally do this. And Baily was a sweetheart all day. I love her all the time but I really enjoy her on days like these!
