Jason and I had a great conversation last night, and I just wanted to share it with you.
To start off, he fell earlier in the day, and scraped his foot. It was very tramatic for him. So as he was falling asleep last night, this is what he said:
Jason-I have an owie
mom-I know but its starting to get better
Jason-Its all together now?
mom-yep its all together.
Jason-Its not broken?
mom-nope its not broken
Jason-(getting excited) its fixed
mom -yep its all fixed
Jason-yea I'm perfect.
mom-yes you are

Life doesn't get better than this!

What a bunch of goofs!!!
We all got a little slap happy last night at bedtime. Abby was asleep in her bed, and Jason had fallen asleep on the couch, when the other 3 got goofy. trust me they only look innocent!!
Zachs head stand, one of many.

Joeys attempt at a head stand, (just a little help was needed)

Alli folding herself in half.

And now backwards, (I did try this, and I don't recomend it for anyone over the age of 10)

We are the luckiest people!
This is the 3rd temple open house I have had the opportunity to take my kids to in the last year!!!! This is the Oquirrh hills temple in Utah. What a beautiful temple, and in fact its a good thing we went when we did, because the next night (I promise it did not happen when we were in it) Angel Moroni was hit by lightning. They are now repairing it. Abby, my mom, Alli, Saydee, and my grandma What a goodlooking bunch of girls!

The kids were spread out everywhere, so I only got a pic of a couple of them waiting outside for everybody else. It was right after this pic that it really started raining, and we went running for the cars!

Jason is the goofiest kid. He would not eat his dinner because he was a bird, and I had to feed him like he was a bird. He ate a whole bowl of chicken noodle soup like this. What a goof. Open up baby birdie.

Ok I have a lot of pics I have not had a chance to blog about yet. So here it goes. Once again I put the pics in backward but you can get the idea. This is what we had for dinner last night. I got sick of the kids saying 'we don't want that for dinner' so I made some pizza dough(let me know if you want the recipe, its so easy in the bread maker) Then I put out all the ingredients for the pizza, and let them make their own pizza pocket. When they were done, they painted their names on it with food coloring and water. THEY ALL ATE it was wonderful!!!

Ok here is the dessert. I know it kind of looks gross, but it was sooooo good. I took a box of chocolate instant pudding, added the milk, and a small container of cool whip, then I crunched up oreos, and mixed that in. Then you pour that into those little bathroom cups, stick a stick in it, and freeze it. Its a huge hit~ the kids all asked when we can do that again.

I love my kids!!!!
I have to say I am the luckiest mom in the world. I enjoy hanging out with my kids so much! They are all growing up too fast. This is only the begining of a fun summer. The kids are all in swimming lessons right now, I can't get pics because I am teaching swim lessons, but they are doing so great! And we get to swim every day! What a life.

This is for you Aunt Lanie, here is Alli with the barbie clothes that she made with the kid she got for her birthday!

During tonights wild rain storm. I enjoyed watching Alli and Jason watching the storm through my slightly dirty window. They were so cute! Jason kept saying,"its gorgeous outside" it was pretty cute!

More summer fun!!!
ok so I am out of order a little bit, but over memorial weekend I took the kids to the cosmic fun zone in Pocatello, While the big boys were playing laser tag, Alli, salt, and pepper, (my nicknames for jason and abby) were playing on the playground, and the little kid rides. They really had a great time.
