Fun Day

I woke up this morning and worked on a Christmas project for a bit. Then I went to the Temple with a few of my friends. After that we grabbed a shake and some fries. I came home and Lorelei came over and we hung out for a little while. When she went home she left little Sam here. We played all night with Sam and now all the boys and Sam are asleep in the front room. It was a busy day and tomorrow will be a repeat, but it was great.

New Beginnings

Today is the beginning of something new. Today may change everything. Today may only change one thing. Only tomorrow knows.

Oh the Little Things

I went out today to get a little present for my niece. I want her to wake up in the morning and have a wonderful birthday all day. So, when her mom was here today I sent her home with a little bag of goodies. I big light up pin that says it's her birthday, three bead necklaces and a tiara that says Happy Birthday. i told her to tell my niece that she has to wear it all day, even to school. I know this isn't all that cool, but it makes me happy to do little things for others. Especially these kids I just love and adore.

Controlled Yelling

We were in the grocery store parking lot tonight. A little boy was being very naughty. His mom kept telling him to stop being naughty. He didn't want to listen. That is when the hilarious controlled yelling started. I love it, all the emotion of getting your head bit off, but not the volume. Perfect for yelling at naughty little boys in public.

Boom Boom

Andrew did a book report on the book Chicka Chicka Boom Boom. He says his favorite part is when they say, "Chicka chicka boom boom". Then he told us what he would say to his teacher if she asks him why that is his favorite part. He said, "I would tell her it's because boom boom is poop, and poop is funny." I really hope she asks him.

We were sitting down around the table today. I was working on a project and the kids were doing homework. Only two were left. One of them was Eli who is working on long division. He didn't quite get a problem and instead of asking me (who was sitting right next to him) he got up and found Ali. He thinks it's pretty cool that his sisters are willing and able to help him with his homework and takes advantage whenever he can. It was pretty cute.

Being Thought Of

A friend thought of mine has some really cool stuff she is doing. She thought of me and let me join in. Im really excited to be doing stuff to. I know this is cryptic, but the stuff is going to be a Christmas present to my most faithful reader. The point is, I'm happy.

Dragons in Church

I spoke in church yesterday. As I was up on the stand I looked down and saw Jack flailing his arms and the rest of the kids (and Timm) laughing. Turns out there were dragons in church with us and he was battling them. No wonder the bishopric is always giggling at us.
