Sing the punish song

I was tucking Garret into bed last night and he said "Sing the punish song". Now before you jump to the conclusion that I sing a specific song to him as I punish him, let me clarify that he was referring to the 2nd Article of Faith song (We believe that man will be punished for his own sins....). We have been learning the Article of Faith songs in Primary. Apparently this one made a big impression on him.

"Fancy Words"

Katie came home from school the other day and told her that her teacher was teaching them to use fancy words. She said "you know instead of saying it was fun, we should say it was wicked awesome." What exactly are they teaching my child in school?

GU basketball game

Tanner and his whole Basketball team got to go to a Gonzaga basketball game. It was senior night and was Steven Grey's last home game. The boys got interviewed by the news as they were leaving about Steven Grey. They were surprisingly very knowledgeable about his career at GU.

More pictures on the white wall

It is impossible to take pictures of my children. They won't hold still, they won't be serious, they won't smile. What's a mom to do?

Katie's 7th birthday

Her beautiful birthday dress.

For Katie's birthday she and I had a special date. We went to Build a Bear and she built her rabbit "Alex" and got 2 outfits for her. Then we went shopping with some of her birthday money and she got an outfit for herself. We went to McDonald's for lunch and then went and got pedicures. It was quite a day. We had Sunday dinner at our house and it was Katie's birthday dinner. She had chicken pillows and chocolate cake. The next weekend Katie had a date with Grammy and they went back to Build a Bear and spend more of her birthday money on more outfits for Alex. Alex will be the best dressed bunny.

Tanner's 11th birthday

His dad bought him a Swiss Army Knife.

Tanner is 11. I can't believe it. He got cinnamon rolls for breakfast and corn chowder and cake for dinner. He had some friends spend the night and they played video games all night.

Recent Garret comments

Garret brought me a dress and asked me "Can you help me get into this beautiful dress?"

We went to Utah the end of February to see Jessy and Will. My mom came down too and we all went to Price to see Granny, Marsha and Jim. While we were having craft day (thanks Marsha) I overheard Garret saying to Will "You want my hand? How bout my butt? How bout my other butt?" Not sure I want to know what he was doing, but I am sure it involved him sticking out his butt cheeks as far as they would go.
