Two Kids, a Dog, and a Box =

Pure FUN

Family Picture

By Sam age 5

Gospel Teaching: Reverance

Mr. Sam drew a picture in church a few weeks ago that reflects the gospel teaching he is soaking in at home and in Primary.  It was too cute so I took a picture to share with you.

Left: Showing your belly button (crossed out)  do you see the cute belly button :)

A good Lickin'

Oh the new found joy of beater licking.  Needless to say he wanted "Ma" (aka more)

Helping with the dishes

Ben and Tilly are more than willing to help Daddy do the dishes.  (maybe that's why they don't get done in a very timely manner. Either I have too much help, or I'm avoiding the help)

Happy Thanksgiving

Here's Sam showing off his preschool projects:  His thankful tree and his turkey.  The turkey was promptly eaten after this picture was taken.  Sam said it was the yummiest turkey ever.

Ben's Two Loves

 Books and our dog, Matilda

And no, it wasn't my idea to lock him in a cage with his two loves.  He did that all by himself.

Birthday Boys

I'm behind.  November was a full month and it disappeared too quickly.  Both Elijah and Sam celebrated birthdays.  It is amazing that they have grown up so much in this last year.  They are both wonderful, sweet, kind boys and I am so blessed to be their mother. 

Happy Birthday my little men!!

Sam requested a lego brick cake.  It turned out okay.  He was pleased with it and that's what counts.

Elijah has been on an Ewok kick and he requested an ewok cake.  Um, it stumped me for a bit but thanks to the internet I realized how managable it could be (minus a bear cake pan).  Thankfully we still had Halloween candy around to use for the facial features.
