We had a crazy weekend. It was fun, but very very crazy. Fixed brakes, grocery shopping, a very long Primary program practice, birthday party, and Harvest party. We were busy, busy, busy from 1-9! Resting didn't happen much on Saturday. And then this Sunday didn't provide much rest either because poor little Barrett had a fever. And then this Monday we have been getting ready for my family to come to visit. It has been lots of fun, don't get me wrong. But tiring. Anyway, after our crazy Saturday, Lexi ended the day like you see her in the last picture. She was wearing her superhero cape and mask from the party and was completely tuckered out!!! I thought it was pretty darn hilarious and cute! :)

This is a beautious rag rug I started during general conference.

I really like it, especially how fast it was to complete.

Kenny dumped glue on Barrett's head the other day.

Barrett didn't seem to mind.

My kids loved playing in the rain.

So much rain!

Making cinammon rolls with Daddy.

They were goooood . . .

Even supergirl has to sleep!!!

And so does mommy, so good night!

Baby Bear and the Birthday

Ah, phooey. I had a nice long post written, and it is gone. Poof! What a waste of time! :( Well, Barrett had his birthday two weeks ago, and it was a nice day for the little Bun, although crazier than I would have liked. And it came at the tail end of a week when Carl worked evenings (I really do not like these weeks!) so suffice it to say that the kitchen and house overall were worse for wear. And I was "terrible worn out" (Anne of Green Gables, anyone?). So, his Birthday didn't turn out quite as I wanted or imagined (of course, none of them have . . .). But it was a nice day nonetheless and he seemed happy with it! :)

Kenny is on a "I-am-whatever-is-on-my-shirt" kick right now. So, he picks his shirts carefully and then pretends to be whatever is proudly displayed on his chest. Sometimes he is a car, sometimes he is Spiderman, but on this day of days, he was a Buffalo! :)

Charming girl.

Pretty happy if you ask me!!!


And the epitome of cuteness too . . .

The story here? Lexi saw the balloon and the paper fan she made and recieved a vision! LOL a vision in which she made a peacock, apparently with Picasso as her inspiration! I loved this little peacock, and was sad to see it deflated a couple of days later.

So cute, creative and smart. That is my Lexi in a nutshell.

I love my little family.
