Looks like Occupy Wallstreet moved in to my basement.  The kids made this fort and have enjoyed sleeping in it.

I went to Jarens Knights class today and we made moccasins out of doe hide.  It was fun!

We have two ovens that are on the fritz.  Paul was able to fix this one thankfully.

Day 260

A rare sunny day.  We went on our usual walk to the other cul de sac in the neighborhood.  The kids love riding up and down the hill, even Jadon.

Daddy is preparing for a job interview and the boys are helping him.

I found this not from Jenea today.  She sure LOVES those Cat Warrior books.  She bought another one this week, Jaren has been collecting them too.

Day 257

February 19th, 2012Sunday

We went to the Tuttle's tonight and I snagged this book.  Once in a while I still want sweets, not much though.  When I do have them I want them to be healthy.

Day 256

February 18th, 2012

Today I cleaned out and organized our clothes storage closet.  Jadon and Jolie were excited to get "new" clothes and try them on.

Day 255

February 17th, 2012

Such good helpers cleaning up the muddy mudroom.

Day 254

February 16th, 2012

Jadon and I went grocery shopping at the gleaners store.  We wiped out their inventory of almond milk (we bought about 60).  They are SO cheap here.  Now we'll be stocked up for a few months.

Day 253

February 15th, 2012

This afternoon the girls and I went to a midwife appointment.  I'm still searching for the right one.  I think I found her.  The girl love her already.  She's older, been practicing for 36 years and had 8 homebirths back in the 60's and 70's.  She's super healthy and expects me to be too.  I'm very excited to have found her.  We tried to listen to the baby's heartbeat, but couldn't get it yet )o=  Hopefully in a couple of weeks we'll be able to hear it.

Day 252


February 14th, 2012

The kid wanted me to make their eggs (it's Egg Tuesday) heart shaped in honor of Valentines Day.  Tonight we surprised them with heart shaped pizza for dinner(that I didn't make, the don't like my cooking).

Day 251

February 13th, 2012
I failed to snap a picture today.  I'm sure it was an uneventful day.

Brave kitty to be sitting by a 2 year old while he's playing in the water.

Day 249

February 11th, 2012
Today a package came from Grandma Joy.  The kids were SO excited!  I was too.  My mom gave me SUCH a sweet, thoughtful, creative and fun gift!  She put a pair of earrings in each of these pretty little numbered bags.  There are 4th of July earrings, Valentines earrings, bear earrings, wood earrings, flower earrings, Texas shaped earrings, dangling sparkly earrings and on an on.  So much fun!

Day 248

February 10th, 2012
I finally decided it was time to have Jadon's hair cut short.  He looks so grown up now.  Such a handsome boy!

Day 247

February 9th, 2012
This is our stinky, mouldy refrigerator.  It's been sitting empty in the laundry room for a few months now.  We thought it was broken beyond repair, but found out this week, it only needs a $60 part (Paul's job) and my job is to (gag) clean it out.  Then we'll have 4 refrigerators to fill with food for our continually hungry children. 

Day 246

February 8th, 2012
The local Value Village is going out of business and selling everything for 50% off.  We of course took advantage of that great sale!

Day 245

February 7th, 2012
We are ready to move so I started packing this week.  Of couse, we don't have anywhere to go yet.  We are ready though.  One of my favorite quotes is by Gordon B. Hinkley "I believe if we keep the commanments of God He will open a way even when there appears to be no way."  That's what we are holding on to, that promise.

Day 244

February 6th, 2012
During evening scripture/book reading the kids LOVE getting back rubs from daddy.

Day 243

February 5th, 2012
Jolie drew this picture of our family at church today.  I asked her who was missing.  She said "Jude".  I asked her why he's missing, she said she didn't have enough room on the page.  

Day 242

February 4th, 2012
I have 50 lbs of onion to process.  Jadon is helping me.  I tied a bandanna around my face hoping to lesson the effect of the onions fumes, Jadon put bunches of cloth napkins on his head hoping to do the same.

Day 241

February 3rd, 2012
It's another beautiful day so we took a walk.  I love how my boys dress themselves.  Jude is wearing a swim suit and a coat (no shirt under it) and Jadon chose to wear his spiderman water shoes for the walk.

It's a beautiful day for eating breakfast on the deck.
