I love it when Heber falls asleep in his highchair. He starts nodding back and forth until he finally lands in something. Today the twins skipped their afternoon nap. Instead we had one bloody nose, two naked toddlers, one poopy diaper...without the diaper. Today I put clean sheets on their beds and bought them new blankets...they love to break these things in early. This weekend Adam and I are celebrating 13 years of marriage.
It's hard to resist posting this shot of Parley. He is so innocent and unaware of how much he will probably resent this picture when he is a teenager. At least he's reading a pretty advanced book for his age. Shaleen
Self portrait as I sit at the computer and let the kids ramble around the house.
I've been more creative and excited about Christmas this year. I've already found the stockings, put lights on the house and allowed the singing Santa to be plugged in. I might even get Christmas cards done. I found a Jazz christmas album that I love...it is festive, yet relaxing (target).
Adam and I stayed up till 10 pm putting up a new bunk bed for the girls. I am so glad that we have an Ikea in Utah. Rachel sang "zip a dee doo dah" for Alpine Elementary Idol and she's in the 2nd round. She's got a lot of spunk. Hannah is wearing really worn out pants to school everyday and she cannot find new ones that are comfortable. Holes and stains only seem to give her clothes a more lived in look. I'm hoping she grows out of this phase soon. Sariah has developed a better eye for what matches and is presentable and its fun to see her picking out clothes to wear. Willard told me the other day that he made a new friend at school...her name is violet. I asked if she was his 'girlfriend". He looked at me funny and said...of course she's a girl. Her name is "violet". Ah, he is still so sweet and innocent. Speaking of not so innocent. The twins and the dog are like a threesome that follow eachother into mischief. There is no lock too high that cannot be reached with a tall stool.
