Last night James and Addie went to a Daddy Daughter Dance at the high school. It was a Drill Team fund raiser. They had a lot of fun and showed me dance moves when they got home. They also had me take their picture because pictures were extra.
We went to Discovery Gateway on Saturday as a whole family. I'd call it Discover a rip-off if I hadn't heard about the "community exploration card" It's an experience you can "check out" from the Salt Lake City Library, and you can get in FREE--up to four people. So James paid $8.50 for Paige and we had a ball.
2 cans cream of chicken soup

Any one else have a $137.50 mistake that loomed over them before redemption was possible. Amber I loved your post about the accident.

Here's Stuart just hanging out. He's so cute and still demanding I eat whatever I get my hands on so he can be full. He was FIVE months old on Wednesday so maybe it's a growth spurt. I fed him some cereal on Friday just to get him used to it--he gagged and gave me wretched faces. On Saturday I went to a shower for my uncle Mark's wife, Kate, who he met and married in 5 days! (no time for a shower before) That's a whole other story, but we stopped in to see Grandpa and Grandma Allen after. Stuart "reported" to Grandpa all that he knew and thought. Here is their encounter:
I love these grandparents of mine. They are the real deal. Always genuine, generous, and interested in everything you do. It was really fun to see all my cousins and aunts--Halla.
On Friday we went up to the cabin to sled--It was Addie's last day off track. Kim and Korrin from my ward came with their kids and Marisa and her crew joined us as well. The sledding was fun. Kim brought up some tubes that were fast, where the red sleds lagged because of the fresh powder. This is the most snow I've ever seen up there. TAckersons and Hawkins--you picked one heck of a year to live there. I thought I had the hill tromped down but then I'd sink to past my knee. I had my camera in my coat, I just forgot to take any pictures until I was bringing in Benjamin.
I made my necessary Dr.s appointments last week--all because I put it out there. This week my focus will be the laundry room. I keep the door shut but I'm going to reclaim the territory. Also it's Valentines week so there's sure to be some fun lovin' that will have blogging potential. Dang--spell check is still not working....grrr....

This is what I've been doing the last few days. Lost in Jane Eyre. It's a winter thing becuase after Christmas I was super inspired to stay on the ball but January wore me out. February has been: read while the kids tear the house apart.....
If anyone has a the Masterpiece version of it, can I borrow it? I think I'll check to see if the library will be getting it in.
Addie and Stuart--I just thought this was a sweet picture.
We love trains and so does Ian. When he comes over we try to build a big huge track with a "branch line" for every engine and tender. Every one wants to be James, he has a smart red coat of paint. Do you speak, Thomas the Train?
Addie has been making crowns for the last two days so last night they acted out King Benjamin for FHE. Of course Benjamin was King and on his tower he told Paige and Addie to remember Jesus. See the tent? I have to give all the credit to James for these drama productions. I feel like I'm always holding the boy and by Monday night I'm exhausted and just happy sitting on the couch watching these cute shows.
I hope this gets a laugh. This is James' second job. If you can guess what it is you win, and can join us for mangeled pizza next month. hint: It's not delivery.
For my focus this week I'm going to try to not be too sad that Mitt Romney is not a possibility for president any more. What happened? What went wrong? He's a good guy. Now John McCain? I'm one of the ones that doesn't like him, with no real reason.
Now my real focus is going to be Dr. Appointments. I need to get Benjamin in to see an ENT because his tonsils are as big as the sun. Here's a funny thing about Benjamin--On Sunday he woke up very sick--with a real high fever. He was even still a little sick today (Tuesday). He is such an easy going sickee. He didn't argue or threaten or run and jump on the new couch at all. He drank punch, napped, and was a sweet nice boy. Of course I felt bad that he was so sick and medicated dilligently but is it bad to admitt I enjoyed him a lot? And forgive the spelling--the spell check is not working....
