Krispy Kreme Donuts Anyone?

Today the Scouts in our Ward did a donut sale to raise money for summer camp. The boys looked so cute in their uniforms an "official" donut hats:) They did sell quite a few, but still have 20 boxes leftover. We will deliver this afternoon if anyone would like to purchase some. They are $6.00 a box, I'm sure the later the day goes on the cheaper they will be:) I am so proud of my husband, son, and nephew who woke up at 5:30 on Saturday morning to truck it across the bridge to do a fundraiser for their troop. You are some AMAZING guys!

Saying Good-bye is Never Easy

My Britt was up until well after midnight crying about McKinnley moving. (Thank you cupcake for taking the couch last night and letting her sleep with me). This is the first friend that she has become close to. Today I let her stay home from school hoping that with by the end of the weekend she will begin to adjust. It breaks my heart to see her so upset. I explained to her that life is about change and new friends will come along. I think Britt took it so hard because she doesn't have a sister and McKinnley filled that need for her.

Best of Luck to the wonderful Thompson Troop! Thank you for the wonderful memories and example you have left in our lives.

The youth had a fireside this past Sunday night. It was wonderful. The kids submitted questions to the missionaries and the missionaries did an amazing job explainingand they even did role play. Our family came away with a better understanding about how to approach friends about the gospel. I am thankful that my children willingly go to these activites and come away with a stronger testimony.

New Blinker Bulb

Sunday on the way to church I noticed by blinker was not working. Paranoid as I am...was worried someone would hit us or (me driving) would get pulled over. So, on the way home we stopped off to get a new one. Well..I'm not very patient when it comes to waiting (I still ask myself why I am married to a man who will stop and talk to ANYONE and is NEVER in a hurry) so I decided to have a little fun:) While Eric was under the hood I BLARED the horn!!! One thing I love about Eric is that he RARELY gets angry. But after a few times of blaring the horn and trying to wet him with the washer fluid he got smart and disconnected the horn then he sat on the curb until I agreed to be nice and let him finish:) Fun times!:)

Our Trip to the Land

Yesterday we took a trip to Eric's parents land where they are building a house. The kids (and dogs) had the best time taking the tractor for a ride. It's great to be able to turn them loose to go on trails and climb trees. Even Chevy had a blast.

On the way home, the roads are very hilly and dark, Wyatt has his hands to his mouth and looks terrified. I asked him what was wrong and he said "Dewey is scared!" (We call him Dewey from Malcolm in the middle) It was sooo cute! The drive to his parents new house is about an hour. At first, I was dreading the long car trip, (especially on a school night) but once we got going it was nice to talk with the kids with no distractions and we even read a little from the new Gospel Principles book. It was really nice to see the kids have a great time. Sometimes getting back to the basics is refreshing:)

For Christmas Wyatt got a bazillion lego's from his G-ma Sallie. He has certainly enjoyed them! I, on the other hand, not so much. It hurts soo bad to step on one and even worse to suck one up in the vaccuum. I do like the fact that Ianand he play with them and create the coolest things. Wyatt has a few lego people that he takes EVERYWHERE with him. That brings me to the topic of today- it's laundry day and this is what I find as I take a load out to put in the dryer.
All of them seemed to enjoy the adventure because they all still have a smile on their face:) There was only one fatality...a head is missing! Not sure where it went. Even headless, I am sure Wyatt will love him just as much and still keep them all in his pockets.
