WAHM: From the Desk of...

Just a moment of me working at home. Dalton climbed on my lap and usurped the computer to send a message to daddy ("dajton for ddy imiss you"). Sienna was playing with the recycling under the desk, then stood up and bonked her head.

Sometimes I see my reflection in my phone and then try to take a picture with the reverse camera. It usually doesn't turn out, but this one is ok. My cute boy is concentrating hard on his message.

Here's a sweet one of Sienna, who was so proud of herself for bringing me a fruitie from the pantry.  Breakfast time!

We believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous and in doing good to all men. Indeed, we may say that we follow the admonition of Paul: We believe all things, we hope all things, we have endured many things and hope to be able to endure all things. If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report, or praiseworthy, we seek after these things.

Both of the kids passed off the 13th Article of Faith (my favorite Article of Faith) in Primary today. I'm very proud of them for learning this. Maggie has now passed them all off, and Dalton only has three more!

1-2-3: Baseball and Cousins

Maggie, Sienna and I had dinner on Friday with Aunt Pat, Shannon and Leah.

Dalton went to an Angels game with John, and (other than throwing up in the car) was COMPLETELY adorable.

Hey, Baby!

This is an old video of Dalton singing "Hey, Baby" to Sienna.  We always used to sing it to chill her out.

Conference Weekend

Random pics from the weekend, to go with my random thoughts post.

This girl's hair.

Sick boy, at the car place.

Primary activity.

Where did she get this idea of talking on the phone? I never talk on the phone, least of all with a toddler in the room.

Home Preschool: Letter S Activities

S is for all kinds of stuff.

For Spring we also covered letter S in flower Stickers.


I drew an S for each of the kids and they decorated them with various art supplies. It was actually a really enjoyable activity. I got all the stuff out and let them have at it - stickers, pompoms, scissors, markers, crayons. Each snowman turned out very unique.  Dalton's has a lollipop and a sticker because he got pokeys for preschool.

Space/Star Gazers. Cut a square of black paper and poke holes in it with a toothpick or pin. You can make a shape or constellation shape. Wrap the paper around the end of a TP roll with a rubberband and check out your stars!

Strawberry and orange Stack Sun Snack

I also had a huge pile of fiction and non-fiction S books for us to read, but we didn't really even get to that. The other activities were too much fun!
