Lazy Sunday

Had regional conference today. Great talks. Best part was we were done by noon. That meant I could bake bread, take a nap, make pizza dough, and have pizza for dinner.

Pepper girl

Putting pepper on chips. Funny girl. I put it on everything but not chips. She is her dad's girl.

Dang it

Playing Ticket to ride and trying to keep Ashlynn occupied. So I told here to stack trains. She stacks two and they fall over. A loud "Dang It" comes out and we all laugh. 

And of course we had to see who could stack the most trains.

These girls love their pickles. They were sure excited to pick out the gallon size jar of pickles at SAMs. They get to enjoy them all by themselves to since the boys won't touch them. 

A Helmet for Ashlynn

The kids got out of school early on Wednesday. What did they do with their free time? Play with card board and make armor of course. 

Seth made Ashlynn a helmet and arm guards. Silly kids. :)

Eden's Kindy 500

Each year the kindergarteners hold the kindy 500. Where they drive around in cardboard cars they've made and learn some Facts about the US. Eden drove her Valentine Express. :)

Cub Scout Fun

Seth and Ethan celebrated the opening of the Olympics at pack night earlier this week with their own opening ceremony!

Curly Sue (Eden)

Eden has been begging me to curl her hair for months now. Well I finally got some curlers so late Saturday night we tried them out. 

Feeling a little silly. 

Right after taking them out.

Look at all those lovely curls.

The final results and one happy girl. :)

BYU vs. San Francisco

It was fun to go out and see the Cougars play. The boys especially liked it as they are playing city league right now. Eden on the other hand was a bit tired and bored and asked Erica to make sure we never did this again. Ashlynn was good for the most part. But then got restless. I gave her my phone which kept her busy until she finally just crashed. One second she was playing the next she was out. Best part besides winning was getting some cougar tails to take home for breakfast. Three times the regular maple bar size. Mmmmh.
Out cold
The flag
Cosmo on stilts!

Ashlynn dancing in the row behind
Styles family
Nose bleed seat! Oh yeah.

Painting with grandma.

Eden has been begging to go grandmas to paint her bird house for months now. So last Thursday we finally went. The girls had a great time. You can't really see it in this picture but Ashlynn had just as much paint on her belly and arms as her rocks. My favorite part was when Eden started to get mad at Ashlynn for painting on her finished bird house and Ashlynn patted her arm and said, "It's ok Eden."

The terrible terrible twos!

I was that mom in Walmart yesterday with the screaming two year old. She was so loud I got a few looks and I even had one lady come ask me if she could help me. The reason she was screaming??? She didn't want me to push a shopping cart. 

I guess all that screaming really wore her out. Me too!

Poison control x 3

So I called poison control for the third time for this little girl. This time she drank half a bottle of Chanel no 5. It was a tiny bottle so she only drank a 1/4 of an oz at the most. The nice guy at poison control assured me that kids have to drink a lot of perfume to become intoxicated. Phew! She smells pretty good anyway.

After frantically looking everywhere for 10 minutes for Ashlynn we find her sound asleep by the back door. We checked every floor and every room with no luck. What happens when you don't get a nap.

Eden can swallow pills

Eden got her Frozen gloves today as a prize for swallowing meds. We have been working hard on swallowing. We started with sprinkles, m&ms, and tic tacs. So tonight she swallowed her prograff (anti-rejection drug). No more liquid meds, and much easier to keep in moms purse when we are out. 


Ashlynn has finally learned to go poop on the potty! She has been wearing big girl panties for a couple of days with only a couple of accidents. I think we will have a pull-up at church though. 
She is excited to eat marshmallow afterwards, and to put stickers on her chart. When she is all done, she gets to go to Build-a-Bear.

Sled Hill

The kids have started sledding down the stairs in the backyard. I though they would have done this sooner than now. Eden started it while the boys were at school, and has probably been down a thousand times. Unless we get some more snow, it is going to start to be a bumpy ride.

Happy Birthday Kennedy

Happy Birthday Kennedy!!!
She had a blast eating her cake, mostly the frosting. It was fun to have both sides together for cupcakes and ice cream. Sad part was she was sick the next day. :(
