Day 264

September 21st, 2014

This was taken by Angie last Sunday, so I posted it this Sunday.  Kiera was over again - everyone jumped on the trampoline again.  Such cute, sweet girls!

Day 263

September 20th, 2014

Today was the last day of convention.  It was very uplifting.  So many inspirational speakers and musicians including One Voice Children's Choir, Rascal Flats, Aaliyah Rose, Stephanie Nielson and more! Heading home tonight.  Miss the kids so much!

Day 262

September 19th, 2014

Meanwhile at home Paul fed the kids eggs for brunch today.  Jenevieve was sitting across from where Paul was cooking, eating her scrambled eggs.  There was an open salt shaker near her.  Paul turned around and she says, "I hate salt."  The look on her face was priceless.  

Day 261

September 18th, 2014

Tonight I participated in a temple ceremony.  It's something I've wanted to do for many years.  I felt the spirit of God so strongly.  Got to talk to the children tonight.  They are well.

Day 260

September 17th, 2014

It seems everyone has taken a trip away except for me, it was my turn today.  I took a trip to Salt Lake City to attend a convention.  Pictured is the great Salt Lake and the salt flats.  

Day 259

September 16th, 2014

Jaren and I learned a new skill today - how to make wordles.  This is one Jaren made for a history project.

Day 258

September 15th, 2014

Jadon has learned to burn his toast just about as well as I do.  Now he's learning the art of scraping off the burnt part before he eats it.  No worries, I gave him a dull knife and taught him to scrape away from himself.

Day 257

September 14th, 2014

A fellow ward member said it best today - our children get more junk food at church then they do all week at home.  Yep, donuts today from relief society, fruit snacks and candy in primary. 

Day 256

September 13th, 2014

Jolie kept me company at the market today.  She sat in a Corvette, played with moon sand and snagged my phone for all these selfies.  We had a miniature companion on the 45 minute trip home.  Thankfully he/she didn't bother us any.      

Day 255

September 12th, 2014

Found socks filled with rocks and bugs in the back yard.    

Day 254

Breakfast and games - sounds like fun.  

Day 253

The incredible shrinking water bottle.  Yes, it was me.  I stuck it in the dishwasher like I do all the other water bottles that don't shrink. 

Day 252

September 9th, 2014

Jadon and the super moon.

Day 251

September 8th, 2014

She told me she was going to sleep on the floor.  I guess she meant it.

Can you spot the three little monkeys in the tree?  Jadon, Jude and Preston? 

Day 249

September 6th, 2014

The littlest Graham is two today!  We spent the day at a community garage sale, then came home, had cake (which turned out pretty good for my doing it) and gifts.  SO grateful to have Jenevieve as a part of our family.

Day 248

September 5th, 2014

Paul making dinner, Jadon and JJ keeping me company while I make Jenevieve's birthday cake.  Chaos in the kitchen, a very common event in our home.

Day 247

Even though school is back in session there is still time to play outside.  Jude in the driveway, Jadon with the ball, Shaylee pushing the jeep with JJ and Shayla in it.

Jenevieve now has several pairs of undies and she LOVES to wear them all at the same time. 

Day 245

Ahhhhh, the dreaded first day of school for Jenea and Jaren.  Summer break is officially over.

Day 244

Evidence that I poison my children and they enjoy it.  For lunch chili mac.  Yuck! 

Day 243

August  31st, 2014

Evidence that my children really do climb the walls.  Shoe scuffs.
