Kite Flying

The other day it was quite windy, and so we called Grandpa. Thankfully the master kite flyer stopped what he was doing and met us at the top of a hill. It was very fun!

Getting the Mail

This is what it took to go get the mail one day. They were so cute it didn't matter that it took twenty minutes just to get ready, and then another fifteen to actually get to the mail box!

Yellowstone National Park

We had an amazing and tiring day seeing the sites (or is it sights?) at Yellowstone yesterday. Here are a few. Buffalo walking in the road, M watching Old Faithful, and riding in the car:

To wash or not to wash?

This picture may be a little confusing. And if it is clear to you, than you are probably wondering why I hesitate to wash it! What the picture does not show you is the swirly designs M drew with a banana when I was gone one morning. That's on the inside. Her muddy handprints are on the outside, and they are so sweet! My precious girl is growing up so fast. I know next time I turn around she will be driving off to prom or college. So I really try to cherish her childhood-even if it is a little grimy...

Tornado Day

Today was a little more exciting than we prefer. We had tornado warnings and watches throughout the day. In between sitting in the "hallroom"

We did a couple activities to pass the rainy day time. We made oodles of Easter cookies:

We also had several weather reports:

(you may think you are looking at M holding a quilting mat, but what you are really seeing is the weather lady giving us a forecast on her map).
Thankfully, our kind Father in Heaven kept this trailer on the ground once again and we were safe from the storm. We are ever grateful for his watchful hand over us.

So after conference on Sunday, the tv was left on for some reason and when we sat down to eat supper there was a documentary about the Galaxy Children's Choir. M was enthralled. After we ate and bathed she put on her closest dress up she had to "Chinese" and we fixed her hair Chinese. And then she got her Chinese baby, and her violin so she could play Chinese. She even spoke some chinese. I just love her imagination!

P.S. What's up, dude?

Dress Making

So Maile and I were making a dress for my sweet little niece. Maile got shall-we-say distracted. Here's what she came up with:

A few items to note: her original outfit, during her cutting and design process she kept saying "we're doing a project", and she wore this outfit to a fancy birthday party to her friend Lindsay's house (ie the playroom) and that game lasted a good thirty minutes. What a precious girl I have!- Posted using BlogPress from my iPhone

Baby Hammock

My daughter is a genius inventor! Who doesn't need a baby hammock (or "comick"as she was calling it) in their living room? I say it's every dolly's dream come true for a little R&R!

Why do my good intentions always melt away? When I wake up I have all these plans to get things done...but then something happens: kids wake up, dishes spontaneously dirty themselves and jump into the sink, and who knows what else. But by the end of the day all I've really managed to get done are my chores and playing/feeding/washing the kiddies. Good thing I have the rest of my life to get my projects done. Cuz babies don't keep!
