Getting Use of the Bibs!

I bought Maisey a new pair of snow bibs this winter, hoping we'd be able to use them at some point. Well, today we had another snow storm but this time 1/4 inch actually stuck! You better believe that the kids got all dressed up and played out in it until it melted.
Here's proof:

Happy Snow Day!

3 words:
It was Delish!

Thursday, February 17, 2011


We are having the elders over for dinner tomorrow night. It's one of their birthdays. He requested a chocolate cake. I'm made my friend's famous recipe tonight. I was using my kitchen aid. It was going. I cracked an egg. I accidentally, or should I say eggcidentally, dropped the egg shell in the bowl while it was mixing. I went to turn it off. I pulled it forward, turning it faster, smashing more egg shells into the batter. I spent forever pulling out tiny ity bitty egg shells. We'll see how it tastes tomorrow. Hope I don't find any crunchy pieces!

I wouldn't expect anything more from my week though! More to come. . .

Missionary Decapitation

When Uncle Ryan was getting ready to leave on his mission 2.5 years ago, we bought this missionary magnet for Maisey. He lost his arm within 5 minutes after he was paid for.

Today, Maisey and Peyton were playing with him and he accidentaly got dropped on the floor.
His head fell off. Tragic? No.
This is what Maisey said:
Well, at least it was more humane.

I asked Maisey where she learned that. She said from Ramona and Bezus. Bezus teaches Ramona how to eat gummy bears -- head first, beacuse it's more humane of course.
That girl is tooooo smart! (Maisey, not Bezus)

a glimpse into my life

- today is laundry day. i just folded my clothes. 6 hoodies and a cardigan. i'll give you one guess as to what i wore to church on sunday.

- gage is getting a tooth. enough said.

- maisey is going through some crazy phase where her potty training habits have regressed, a.lot.

- i'm joining the local gym tonight. kinda nervous. big commitment.

- we had a snow storm today, at least that's what the news said. snow was falling but not sticking. i wouldn't go straight to storm.

- gage likes to touch himself and say ball when getting his diaper changed. today it went a little too far and i had to clean poop off his pudgy hand. gross, i know.

- shaun got a little promo at work. he is now assistant to the team lead, or as dwight would say, assistant team lead. either way i'm proud of him.

- maisey is playing wedding with her friend and keeps calling him babe.

- and i'm so glad michelle is finally off the bachelor.

More Valentine's

The kids and I (ok, mostly I) had fun preparing Valentine's for the kids' friends. My friend Sharon came over one night and she worked on a Valentine's project and I worked on the treats for the kids. Here's what I came up with.
Marshmallow pops from Maisey (she even wrote her own name)

And heart rice krispy treats from Gage. I only ended up dipping a few in the chocolate.

For dinner on Valentine's day we had heart shaped pancakes with strawberries and whip cream and heart shaped Jell-o jigglers.

And for dessert, we had sugar cookies! Yum!!!

After dinner we let the kids open their gift from mom and dad.

Gagey couldn't believe what he saw! He doesn't show excitement very often but he ripped that Mickey out of the bag and gave it a big kiss, with out any prompt to do so. It was so fun to watch!

Maisey soon discovered what was in her bag! Minnie!!!!!

Gage took his Mickey around to everyone to kiss! He was in L.O.V.E.

We said good night to grammy,

then headed to bed, where our new friends received lots of love

and cuddles!
Hope you all had a great day too!

Simple Pleasures

This box has been a boat, a slide, a hospital, Santa's workshop, a library, a crib, a roller coaster, and I'm sure other things that I missed while working on our taxes ALL.DAY. (that's another story) These kids and all the other kids at our house today spent hours playing with this thing! And tonight my kids were "rowing" their boat until it capsized and then would laugh and giggle until I would come and flip them back over! It's so nice to see them play so well together, at least for 15 min.

And this was popped with our brand new over-the-range microwave that came out of the aforementioned box! Our old microwave broke right after Christmas. We have gone with out chicken nuggets, bagel bites, popcorn, and leftovers for over a month! It's been a long time, so after Shaun and our friend installed it last night, I popped my self some popcorn! YUM! You never know how much you use something until you don't have it anymore!
