R.J.'s 1st Band Performance / School Open House

Open House is a wonderful time where we get to see all the great work our children have accomplished and spend ridiculous prices at the book fair. This year was extra special because it included R.J.'s very first band performance. Braden's rendition of a pregnant cow. R.J. showing off that he is the fast runner in the whole school. I could not match this silhouette to Sienna's profile. I still can't see it. Can you? This is the funniest picture. In Braden's class, everyone has their desk in groups of four. Except Braden. His desk is all by itself at the front of the room, right up against his teacher's desk. I'm sure you can guess the reason! Studly trumpet player

I had a weird dream about dinosaurs last night. I don't know why, that is so random. I can't remember it anymore but I remember waking up in the middle of the night and thinking, "how weird, I just had a dream about dinosaurs." And upon further reflection, I remembered helping Sienna with this Dinosaur Diorama a month ago. At the time, I was so proud of myself and Sienna for our astounding artistic abilities, without any help from Ryan at all! But then we went to open house and I saw all the other dioramas, and I want to go crawl under a hole somewhere and die of embarrassment. Oh well, we can't be good at EVERYTHING!

So Grateful...

I'm grateful that this cute little body is washable! And since my furniture isn't, I'm grateful this cute little body only colored on himself and none of my furniture.

Saturday is a Special Day

During the Fall we finally finished our backyard, and with our new backyard, came 3 fabulous garden boxes! Last Saturday, I planted my fabulous garden. We have TONS of tomatoes (I'm the only one who likes tomatoes, but I just can't help myself), cucumbers, zucchini, strawberries, tomatillos, banana peppers, serrano peppers, and cilantro. I really hope everything grows! Conner keeps massacring my cucumbers. It's weird how he keeps going for the cucumbers, he's killed 3 plants so far. But don't worry, Ryan bought me 3 more today, and they are ready for planting! I also took Sienna to the Home Depot so she could make this fabulous basket. I think it's supposed to be for plants, but she wanted to paint it purple and give it a special function of some sort in her bedroom.

My kids are dancers! Our school had a fun dance performance, and here is there debut. Braden was very stoic and serious the whole time. R.J. had a break dance solo. And if you're bored and have nothing better to do, you can watch there dances in their entirety. I know you want to.

Number 3

Conner turned 3 on Sunday! It's so weird. I still think of him as my baby. It was the same day as General Conference, so it was a day of laying around and eating junk food all day! Yes, I made cinnamon rolls!! This is my first time EVER and it actually worked! I've always been overwhelmed by cinnamon rolls, they scare me. It turns out they aren't so hard, but it takes FOREVER and you (atleast, I) make a gigantic mess! I wanted to cut the recipe in half but Ryan wouldn't let me. So I made FIFTY-FOUR cinnamon rolls. That's 9 apiece... I don't think Conner really understands what it means to have a birthday. But I sang him the birthday song all day, and that made him giggle all day, too. And he really likes blowing out candles. And I'm trying to teach him to say, "I'm three!" Sometimes he will, but most of the time he won't. Happy birthday, Conner, everybody loves you!!
