Busy Andrew

Andrew is a naughty little guy.
He is busy, busy, busy!


He pulled out all of the files and movies.

He emptied a box of cereal onto the floor.


And then again, on the table. 


He makes a mess when he eats ANYTHING!



He got my lipstick out of a LOCKED drawer!



And did the same thing with my mascara. 



Pulled all the tissues out of the box.


Pulled all the plastic wrap out if its box.



He broke eggs on the floor...THREE different times!!


He pulled the pancake mix out of the pantry, carried it to the living room, and poured it out.



Made a mess with the peanut butter



This is the most recent event.
Darin's parents stayed with us last week and left a box of chocolates on the counter.
Andrew climbed up, opened the box, and took a bite out of 8 different chocoates.
Naughty little guy!


Luckily for him, he is the cutest guy I know!
Hard to stay mad at that face!!

(And no, I don't take a picture every time he's naughty).

I've always wanted to be a carrot...



This year, CAA is putting on the ballet, Peter Pan.

A few weeks ago, I asked Lindsay's teacher if she knew what they were going to be for the ballet.
She said some classes would be mermaids, some would be "pixie dust," some would be fairies, and there were a few others.

Last week, I called my mom to see if Lindsay's class had their assignment.

Carrots.

I was a little bummed.  And frankly, I couldn't see a connection between carrots and Peter Pan.

I thought Lindsay was going to be disappointed.  When I told her, her face completely dropped, with no expression.

She said, "Are you kidding me?  A carrot?  .....Yes!!  I've always wanted to be a carrot!!  WHOOO!!"

I called my mom laughing and she said, "You thought I said a carrot?  I said a parrot!"

When I told Lindsay she said, "A parrot!  Wheeeee!!!!  That is even better!!"

I said, "Lindsay, thanks for having such a great attitude!  I'd bet you'd even be happy to be a hippopotamus!"

She said, "Nuh-uh!  NO THANK YOU!!"

LOVE that girl!!  And I cannot wait to see that girl as a little parrot!!

Star of the Week

Matt got to be the "special person of the week" at school.
He is a pretty special dude.

He also had SEP conferences and got a GLOWING report!
He is such a wonderful boy, and such a joy in our home!

Here is is poster we made.

When we finished, he wanted to color the back too... so we added this...


That week was also Red Ribbon week-- so here was his hair for "crazy hair day."


I'm not Matt's only fan.
Andrew and Linds LOVE that boy!!

They always play at the flag pole as they wait for Matt.


Then sit on this bench to wait some more....


We saw this awesome track in the sky as we waited.


Then, EVERY DAY when Matt comes out, Lindsay RUNS to give him a BIG HUG!



I sure do love this special person!!

Take Me Back to Disneyland!

Here is a little video I made of our trip to Disneyland.

I could watch it over and over (and I have).

It didn't upload as well as I had hoped, but hope you enjoy it!

Family Pictures

While we were in California, Geoff and Jadi were nice enough to take a few family pictures for us!
I sure do love this family of mine!


















And I really love this "dream boat!"

Happy Halloween!

We procrastinated our pumpkin carving until the night before Halloween.
Princess Anna looks a little scary, but we had fun!


We always go trick-or-treating to Grandpa Welling's first, and he always sets the bar pretty high because he give the BIG candy bars out!



Next, to Grandma and Grandpa Hodgkinson's.


Andrew broke into the candy!


Last we do Main Street in Bountiful and our street.


Happy Halloween!

Some days I think I'd like 12 Children....

Some days, my kids are so cute, and kind, and sweet to each other, and it makes me think I'd like 12 kids.

Other days, I come in the kitchen and find Andrew doing "cinnamon angles."
