It's That Time of Year Again

It snowed this morning... That means it is time to get out the puffy coats. Good thing the kids are so dang cute in them!

A Nurse in Training... Sort Of

I was in the middle of making lunch for the kids, and I hear Ellie say, "Come back, I wanna listen to your heart!" And then I see this. I could not stop laughing.

(Don't mind the toys strewn everywhere or my unclothed children. Some days are just like that around here.)

I'm still not sure how she got ahold of my stethoscope, but apparently I need to keep it up higher... And I need to teach her that patients generally don't like to be strangled.

How to Entertain Your 2-Year-Old (And Yourself) During General Conference

Dress her up in a pig suit. I think this was just as much for our enjoyment as for hers. When she saw this picture of herself she said "Whoa!"

     We sure love these kiddos. Better enjoy these silly moments before they are gone!

Baby Talk

     This little boy loves to babble, but he also has a few words that are actually associated with something. He can say "mama," "dada," "baba," (bottle) and "nana" (banana). I guess he just needs to know all of the important words! :)

     We sure love this sugar-loving guy and his big sister! ...And he and Ellie love each other almost as much. They love to play together, even though their playing sessions usually end in tears from one or both of them.

Make-up Mischief

     Apparently I put mascara on my forehead.

General Conference This Weekend

     General Conference is this weekend! I am so excited! If you don't know what General Conference is, this video can tell you a little more.

     General Conference is a worldwide meeting of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints that is broadcast on T.V., the Internet, and at local meetinghouses around the world. Everyone is welcome to watch and learn, whether or not you are a "Mormon." We will hear from God's living prophets and other leaders of the Church.

     Please join me in watching this weekend! Saturday, October 5th at 10:00am and 2:00pm, and Sunday at 10:00am and 2:00pm - Mountain Time. You can view it at these times on
