We have so many kids in our neighborhood ,just in the houses that are around us there are 15 kids that are all of my kids ages.
 I told my kids we were going to make cookies and they all wanted to bring friends in. I had to think quick to find a way all the kids could have fun and not get hurt. 

Here are the kids rolling there arms pretending to mix everything together. 
Latter that day all the cookies were gone. The word got out and all the other kids came home from school and asked to have one.

Bird houses.

I  have not been the best blogger I'll repent soon. I down loaded some pictures from my camera and will do just one event, latter I'll so more. 
For the last 3 years we have been painting birdhouse on the first day of spring or around about there ( it all depends on the weather) and then giving them away to some one. The kids thought of a way to give them away, with out giving them away. They gave them to each other, Rob and I had to laugh and just let it be this time!

Here is Easter 2009 we went to Thanksgiving point and tried to do the Easter egg hunt. Emma got to do hers, but Tanner and McKenna didn't. We were standing in line for the pony rides and right when we got up to ride I see their age bracket starting. I told them I will just go to the store and buy them what ever they would like. They were both happy and so was I. It was madness with the kids and the parents running around for those eggs.
I wanted to get some pictures with my kids all dressed up, but two out of the three kids were sick, So maybe next week. On Sunday we went to my sisters house and had our family Easter egg hunt. The two sick kids really were troopers and, Emma she loved being there. For FHE we will be doing what Easter really means. I hope you all had a great Easter and created good memories.

Thanks giving point.

Spring flowers

I got this idea from the "Family Fun" magazine. I thought this would be a great craft while we watched General Conference.

Here is what you do:
  1. Trace your kids hand out.
  2. Cut two double leaves.
  3. Curl the paper fingers and leaves.
  4. You can use two pipe cleaners and twist them together or use a green straw. Tape the hands to them for the stem.
  5. Add the leaves and get a long lasting flower.

If you can't tell Tanner's wanted blue, McKenna's red and Emma's pink.
