Breakfast Attack!

This is a movie that the kids and I made for our reunion in 2007, but at that time we could not put it on a disk for some reason,( maybe because our computer wasn't quite good enough.) to show it at the little talent show that we had.  So we had to resort to doing "The Invisible Bench" skit.  Which turned out pretty cute.  Well, now that we have a better, newer, faster computer, here is the movie that has been waiting for 3+ years on our video camera to be edited, and made into a film.  Hope you enjoy the movie.  Oh yeah, be sure to stay tuned at the end for bloopers.

Fathers Day

Well I think that Clint had a rather enjoyable day today.  We didn't give him breakfast in bed because he was the first one up and dressed for church.  Plus he doesn't really like breakfast anyway.  We all got up (the rest of us) and got ready for church and went.  There were some really good talks about fathers and my primary class went well.  By the end of church Clint was loaded up with sweets.  The R.S. made cookies for the fathers and the primary brought milky ways for the kids to give to their dad's.  So Clint got 4 candy bars and 4 cookies.  I guess it pays off to have lots of kids, huh?  When we came home the kids and I got our gifts ready for him and gave them to him.  Abby made a picture frame with her picture in it.  Elsa made a paper shirt and tie and a hankerchief with a baseball, mitt, and a bat painted on it.  (She made it in school).  Calvin got a rock and mod podge words like super cool, strong, smart, etc on it.  then he made a card.  (in school as well).  Dallin made a shirt that says "You Rock, Dad!"  and I made a card for him, then the kids and I signed it.  Clint was quite happy with all of his gifts.  I think he felt special today.  Oh yeah, and then he took a nap.  Later tonight we all played Wii sports together.  It was fun!

How was your Fathers day?  Hope it was a good one too!

What will they say today?

It's true!  Kids say some of the funniest things.  I just have to share this one thing that Elsa said the other night.

It made me laugh and then turned into a teaching moment for her, but mostly me.  I was doing the dishes one evening when Elsa came to me and said,

Elsa:  Mom, what can mom's say?
Mom:  What do you mean?
Elsa:  Well, dad's can say the "D" word, so what can mom's say?
It was at that moment that I remembered how kids are like little sponges, soaking up everything they see or hear.  Well, I told her that sometimes dad's (and mom's) get frustrated or angry sometimes and they let not-so-nice words escape their lips.  Then explained that that wasn't the right thing to do.  Later as I told Clint about our little conversation, we laughed, then agreed to try to watch our own language when we are frustrated.

Calvin's 1st stop motion movie

This movie is called

Indiana Jones
and the
Raiders of the Lost Emerald
Calvin wanted me to post this to the family blog, instead of his. (I don't know why).
Calvin's spelling is a little off, but the movie is still pretty good.
