Giblets

Cole just came in to me and said,
"Mom, I just fell and squashed my giblets. Don't laugh."
As difficult as it was, I respected his wishes.

A New Post...Good Bye Flat Stanley














I an effort to save poor Flat Stanley's life, I am actually going to write a new post. Dear Stanley is being threatened and I just can't take it anymore. SO here it is, new pictures so you don't have to look at Flat Stanley's grinning face everytime you check my blog. ( For those of you who even check my blog, I think there are about 2 of you left.....we all know I definitely am not a blogger.)
Anyways, we had our pictures taken right before thanksgiving by an awesome photographer in our ward. I haven't posted the pictures yet because I wasn't sure which one I was going to use on a Christmas card and I wanted it to be a suprise when you all got it. So I finally picked one, and here are some that I didn't use. She did such a wonderful job. Taking pictures of four kids, especially mine, was definitely not easy. Thanks Gina!
There you have it, and Flat Stanley is no more. But ya never know, he just might pop up some where when you're least expecting it. After all he is flat, and he is a bit annoyed...

Flat Stanley


















Yes, I know thses pictures are a bit odd but Adam had to take Flat Stanley to work with him for a project for Cole's class. Flat stanley is a kid who gets flattened (duh!) and his new found adventures as a piece of paper? ( sounds like a great story...I know...what are they reading to my kid?!)

ANYWAYS, I thought these picures were pretty funny. I didnt think Adam was that creative. There were even more pics but I thought these were the funniest And yes, Cole was the little nerdy kid who came with the most picutures. I think he was supposed to bring just one, but what can I say, the kids need some attention! Thanks Flat Stanley, we enjoyed using you to pick up a nasty piece of gum. Just kidding, dear Stanley is safe.

Normal Life




Ashley realizing that Halloween is another 40 days away


David got tired of waiting ......
and waiting for his turn to play

David with his best bud Josh after preschool



Well we have definately settled in to the routine of school. Cole tried to escape from kindergarten only one time. He is doing a lot better and my easiest child to get ready for school. He doesnt care what he wears and his hair takes 2 seconds to do. Ashley and David are also enjoying school, and their issues with clothes and hair (especially David) have me frazzled some mornings, but they make it to school in one piece. The hours and hours of extra free time I thought I was going to have only having one child with me 2 days a week has somehow never appeared. I think my house is actually messier and more cluttered now than it was during the summer. I guess maybe I am catching up on lost time and wandering around Target for far too many hours. They knew me by name there, at all 4 locations I frequent and occassionally ask me to stock shelves. Thank goodness for their sweet return policy. I just dump the 49 things on the counter I don't want, keep the ONE thing I do want, give them my debit card to issue my return, and then start the vicious cycle all over again.


So thats my life in a nut shell right now, send kids to school and go to Target.


Kidding, kidding, but some days I feel like thats what it consists of. I am trying to better manage my time and not feel like I need to get a Target fix to complete my day. ( And they really dont know my name there, at lease I hope they don't):)


About a month ago I was called to be a beehive advisor in the young womens program. I was a little nervous at first because I have not been in young womens since I turned 18 and left for college. It has been a great experience so far and I have managed to teach 2 lessons without passing out before giving them! All the girls have been so welcoming to me.


I am anxious for the weather to start cooling off. I think that will happen here eventually. I put our Halloween decorations 2 weeks ago. The kids got all excited and thought trick or treating was just around the cornor and I had to break the news that they still had about 40 days. They were a bit devastated.


Anyways, I am posting some random pictures of the kids to go with my random thoughts.
This is a video of Lindsey just talking. Adam thought I was about to take a picture thats why he suddenly stops smiling. Lindsey is just at that the age where anythig she says sounds cute. Her favorite thing to say is 'scary" when she sees halloween stuff, and "oh man" that swiper says on Dora.
