Totally Busy!

Picture for Madison's Room

We have been totally busy this week, with painting Madison's new room. We have had her in the front bedroom but have decided to move her to the back one and make her old room the comp./craft room. So William and I have been busy with painting and redoing the room. I am going with a French theme to her room, so that she can grow into it, since I have been informed that she is not that little girl anymore. ( I guess the princess phase is on it's way out!) It has been fun planning but not the painting part, I just don't have the patience for painting. It will be worth it in the end. I found this picture today at Savers and brought it home and painted the frame black, it was this ugly brown frame before. When we are all finished with her room, I will post pictures.

Moving Day!

Today we got Brittany and the family moved to Mesa. They found a really cute Condo at Country Club and the Freeway. There are some young couples from their ward that live in the same complex as they do.

Hey Everyone: Kyle and Jeffrey are participating in the Relay for Life in remembrance of their friend and neighbor Lorin Merkley (my nephew). They are raising funds for cancer. If you are able to make a donation they would appreciate your help. Donations can be as little as $5.00 or if you know someone who has been affected by cancer you can purchase a luminary for $10.00 and have their name put on it. These luminaries will light the way for the walk they will be doing. Below is the instructions and site to visit to donate. Thanks

These Luminaries and any other donation can be done by going to the website and clicking on Donate, then search for the team "Desert Mountain Ward" and those who want to donate can buy luminaries or just make a donation

6 Weeks!

The day most parents are not looking forward too, including me! Is the last day of school and then summer starts...Awwwwwwwwwww! Don't get me wrong, I love Madison and she brings alot of smiles to my face and laughter. But she is also the 1 child out of all my kids that gets bored very,very,very easily! So I am not sure what we are going to do with her this summer. We do have a family reunion in June for a week so that will keep her busy with all her cousins...if any of you have suggestions PLEASE let me know. I have plenty of books,movies,crafts but that only keeps her attention for so long. In our neighborhood there isn't really a whole lot of kids her age...I am trying to find a dance place so she can take dance this summer that isn't to expensive and to far to drive.

What are Ancestors? (Madison)

( This is Madison's Great,Great,Great Grandparents)

This is a conversation between William and Madison the other day in the car...

Madison: Dad what are ansisters?
William: Don't you mean ancestors?
Madison: Yes, ansisters!
(William just going on instead of arguing about a mispronounced word continues)
William: Ancestors are family members that came before us like pioneers. We can trace our ancestors all the way back to Adam. He was our first ancestor here on earth.
Madison: He was!?! But wouldn't that make him our anbrother not our ansister???

Kids say the funniest things don't they!!!

Face VS Knee

This is what happens when you try and run as a 1 year old to give a hug to daddy and fall and hit his knee instead! Chloe cried and bled for awhile but then took a bottle and was fine. Just a fat lip for a war scar....
