New Fireplace Mantle!

Nic decided one day that he couldn't stand the ugly fireplace mantle anymore.  While I was picking up kids from Tammy's, he tore down the stone!  It only took him about a week to completely remodel it.  An awesome white wooden back and a beautiful brick bottom.  He's freaking amazing!!

Ninja Balls & Goldfish

The twins had a little Mini Society at their school and got to buy and sell products.  Brooklyn (and us), made these awesome flour balloon Ninja Balls which sold out immediately.  Camryn was probably the number one seller in the 4th grade.  She sold live gold fish.  They were gone in seconds and there were a lot of sad kids who didn't get one.  I'm sure there were also alot of angry parents when their kids came home with fish....  Anyway, it was a lot of fun and I got to go participate and buy just about everything with my Knight Bucks.  Quincey came over and helped making Ninja Balls one night and we  made sure she went home with a ball and a cupcake for her birthday that night!

Presidents Day in St George

Just another action packed St George vacation!  Holly's fam and Mom and Dad were there.  We hiked where Nic broke his ankle, then hiked in Zions on Sunday.  Calvin was so tired that after a major melt down, he fell asleep in my arms at the top of our bike.  Despite a fired back, I was in heaven carrying my sleeping baby all the way down the mountain.  Might be the last time I get that.   It was also Valentines Day while we were there so The girls threw a party for the littles, complete with dollar store prizes.  Then, mom and dad babysat while Holly, Clark, Nic and I went to dinner and a movie.  I feel pretty good about myself every Valentines Day that the guy getting me flowers is the the dreamiest human alive.  That's just the truth.

Spelling Bee for Brooklyn and Kendyl!

These 2 did so well!  We think Cam could have made it into the spelling bee too, but she studied the wrong word list :(  They both made it really far!  Brooklyn got a bizarre word I've never even heard.  No way I could have spelled it.  That's always frustrating when the next kids get easy ones.  Oh well, luck of the draw I guess.  Just proud to be their mama!
