A little bit of everything

When you need an ice cream cone and realize someone left an empty box in the freezer.

Sunday Lego building.

Roaming  the park.

James and I are a package deal when it comes to my calling. First we went to my 7:00 am stake primary meeting. From that we went straight to the 9:00  am ward (for 3 hours) then straight to the 1:00 pm ward (for 3 hours). At 4:30 pm I picked up Hailey and Evan who were still at another ward at church with Steve, who was in a meeting. I took all the kids home for an hour before I left for a  stake scout meeting. I got home at 7:45 pm.

Much of life is what you make of it. I want to believe I receive way more than I give. 

James eating his first churro at Costco in the rain.

Found a kitty on a walk.

Off to see the ophthalmologist for Evan. 

Picking up potting soil.

Everybody needs a friend.

Eating leaves.

Hailey was so lucky. She got to go to the American Girl Restaurant for Emery's birthday.

And you thought you were having a bad day.

And while we were rushing to get ready for school James got the toilet paper roll out of the trash can. He is so quick!

Happy 7th Birthday!

She was so excited. We let her open her present before school since we wanted Steve around to see.

She requested pancakes for dinner.

She got all the Samantha books for Christmas and had already finished reading all of them by her birthday.

Off for birthday breakfast donuts.

Even James got a donuts hole.

At school the birthday girls  had treats and also got to call on classmates, who gave them compliments about what they like about them.

Irish Apple Cake

This little boy loves to get into the dirt and eat it. 

My parents, & sister Kendra and her husband Kyle, and our family  are starting a  new get together. Once a month we watch a Rick Steves traveling show together and cook food from that country. One family does the entree, one a side dish, and the last group gets dessert. The first time we watched the Dublin episode.

Here we made Irish apple cake..

Getting ready for Church. I was going to be gone to other wards for most of the day so Steve said: "When the cat's away the mice do play."

Painting Bird Houses

We have had some rain. Good things I had a stash on 1$ birdhouses from michaels just waiting to be painted.

What he really wants to do is read the newspaper.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Being nosy.

Hailey had a little valentines party where she invited her friends from Church to come over. They made valentines & decorated cookies for their families.

Steve got the kids little  Lego sets for valentines day.
