Monster Baby

So if anyone has any suggestions on how to keep a 2.5 year old in his bed, will you let me know? I have used up all the ingenuity that I can muster, and need ideas!

I should go Pro




Attention! Attention!!!! Everyone, I want to announce that I finally found what I am really good at. Do any of you ever feel the need to be really good at something? Like that one thing that you are known amongst your friends for? Well, indeed you should congratulate me hardily! I found mine. I am fantastic at botching a good haircut. Sam's in particular. I should get an award for giving a child the most haircuts in 24 hours.

The days of wild hair are back. Its official, I stink at cutting hair. Too bad for my kids that I am cheap. My hair is proof. I won't horrify you with pictures.

Pumpkin Patch at School



Well, Samuel participated in the annual pumpkin patch at his school. Let me just say that this is a family affair. It is expected that the parents help. And Sam painted and help mold things, but Collin and I did the majority of the labor. It was a fantastic family project. I was sad to find out that we did not win anything. The build up was so great, and alas, my dreams were dashed. Its okay. He was more excited about the box of candy he got for participating (I won mom!) than the savings bond.
There were tons of cute pumpkins, and the cutest decorations. Hahahah.
One day I will get over it, but it won't be today.

I feel like a new woman now that the Halloween events are over. Though my counter is still full of junk, and the laundry mountain grows ever more treacherous. Jacob is sitting up and learning some eating skills. Cooper has learned to be annoying and loves to read his favorite book "It's Potty Time!" and Sam is learning all about letters and Star Wars. If I could harness his desire for that into the Book of Mormon, we would be set.
