Parenthood 101

Abby had pealed a hard boiled egg and left the peel on the floor in the living room. I asked her to please pick up the shells. She came in the kitchen, where I was and declared that she had picked them up. Then I asked if she had put them in the garbage. She just looked at me like "Oops, I forgot", she ran back into the living room and gathered the shells from off the piano bench. I just assumed that she knew what to do with them.
I forget that I have to be specific with kids, especially 4 year olds.

A birthday wish for Dallin

Well, he did it....Yes, Dallin turned the big 11 today! I think he had a terrific day. He spent the day, after church of course, playing with his new Lego sets. He also was excited to get his new boy scout uniform. Yes, he now gets to go on camping trips and have some "real" fun with scouting. (Not that cubs wasn't fun, just a different kind of fun.) He loves scouts! I just can't believe he's a boy scout already. He's growing up sooo fast! Here are some pictures.......Look at all these people who love you Dallin!
Look! A new scout uniform!Thanks kids for the space patrol legos, I love them!Thanks to all who gave me gifts and who wished me "Happy Birthday"!

Happy Easter

Well, today has been a good Easter day so far. Yesterday, we dyed eggs. (Which was fun!) This morning we woke up to Elsa trying to convince Abby, who was in our bed, to come out and see what the Easter bunny left her in her basket. Needless to say, it didn't take much convincing. The kids had fun looking in their baskets and snacking on them while we watched conference. (After eating a nutritious breakfast, of course). Then, after we got spiritually filled, the kids hunted for eggs outside. It is a good day so far. Next, is the last session of conference, then a dinner of lasagne (we had our Easter dinner last week) it's a good thing too because Clint's not feeling well. Anyway, enjoy the soon to come!We love to decorate Easter eggs!
The boys were reading a letter from the Easter bunny, it read;

Dear Kids,
I hope you are doing well and are having a great Easter day so far. I hope you will always remember the real reason we celebrate Easter. Although it's fun to hunt for Easter eggs and receive goodies in Easter baskets. Let's not forget that our Savior, Jesus Christ died for us and was resurrected so that we can live again, and one day, if we live faithful, we can live again with our Father in heaven and our families forever. So as we celebrate Easter today let's remember our Savior, Jesus Christ and ALL that he did for us.
