Flashback Friday


I really wanted to post a Flashback Friday today. And since I didn't have any old pictures of myself on my computer I decided to use this one of my parent's wedding line. I don't know the exact year, sometime in the early 60's.

Bath

Kane was taking a bath today. I left him in the bathroom while I went upstairs to get PJ's. When I came back in the bathroom the whole floor was soaked! The rug, the toilet seat cover, there was even water in the garbage can. I started getting mad and telling him to get out right now and you know better than to make this huge mess. As I was helping him dry off I said, "Kane, what did you do in here?" He replied, "It's a long story." Hahahaha! I love it when little kids start saying new phrases like that. I couldn't help but laugh out loud a little and that made him cry. He wasn't too happy I took a picture of his sadness but he's too cute. At least my bathroom is really super clean now.

New Look

What do you think of my new layout?
Thanks to one of my bestest friends, Chardell. She did it for me.
*Update* I think the background might be too busy. Hmm. I know you all care, haha!

Whoa!

I just felt an earthquake! I was sitting at my desk at home, reading my brother's new blog, and the desk started to "jiggle" a little bit. I thought maybe it was me, it felt like I was going to throw up and pass out (Phenomenon?). Then I looked at my blinds and the string on them was swaying too. I walked to the kitchen and the light hanging in there was swaying too. Holy crap! Anyone else feel it today?
*Update* I saw on the news that there was a 6.0 earthquake around Wendover. Guess it really was an earthquake, wow.

Dino Lunch



Isn't this the cutest thing that my sister, Heidi, found at Smith's? For those of you who don't already know, Kane LOVES dinosaurs and hates to eat. He would live off of waffles, yogurt and creamies (and some days I let him). Now we can add PB&J to the mix. He thought it was hilarious to bite off the dino heads. Thanks Heidi!

Asher Video 2005

videoThis is a video from September 2005, Asher was almost 5. He's singing I am a Child of God. You can barely hear him, but my favorite part of the video is Kane scooting over to be right next to Asher. This was my conversation with Kane before he went to bed tonight. Kane said, "I love Asher" I said "I love Asher too", Kane said "I wish I could be him" So sweet!

Maya Singing

video

This was Maya's first attempt at singing I Love to See the Temple on camera. She's so stinking cute. Heidi will have the full version on her blog soon :)

Here's a link to the story KSL did on the cane wave tribute:

You get some good pictures of Asher, Betsy, Heidi & Will waving handkerchiefs this morning. Asher is wearing a black coat with the hood up, Will is in a red coat & Batman hat. The close up of the hands waving are Betsy & Heidi's hands :) Asher thinks he's famous, haha!
Thank you my sisters for including Asher today!

I don't want to!


I have to go shopping today. Which means I have to do two things I hate the most. Drive in the snow and go to Wal-Mart. Pray for me ;)
Do you think I can get away with wearing sweats all day? I don't think my pants will button after binging on all the sinfully delicious food at Anne Marie's last night. Well worth it though. Maybe I should get on my elliptical before Wal-Mart, hmm.
