My friend in the pew behind me whispered to me during church on Sunday. You need more kids. Say what? Your kids are so well behaved you could handle four more! Was her reply. Flattering, yes. Truthful, noooooooooooooo. That was a no in case you missed it. Here’s the truth: [...]
Lily has three words: “Da Da” which represents every member of the family. “Hi” which is used for hello, goodbye, and goodnight. And then her final and favorite word, “Ugh, Uuuuuugh.” This basically means everything else. So for all future visitors, babysitters, and those of you just way overly curious, [...]
Collecting blankets for Circle of Love.
Okay, I totally forgot it was St. Patrick’s Day. I sent off the kids to school without a speck of green on them. Matthew came home off the bus with a green shamrock pinned to his shirt and a note telling me I was a terrible mother. Okay, that last [...]
#1 I hate daylight savings. #2. I seem to have told my spell checker that becuase is an acceptable version of because and I can’t figure out how to change it back. #3. Liquid Gold is the best furniture polish ever. But not the brand new in the store kind. [...]
A little outing to the pet store.
New haircut and color and the chair I am coveting… and warming my freezing feet in the bathroom sink… and In-n-out where I lost my debit card. Sort of. Does it count as lost when it’s inside your car door because you stuck it in the window to take a [...]
Please come pick up your charity crap. Our house is getting full. XOXOXOX Wright’s Okay, I admit I am being a bit of a stinker. Truth be told, even though this project is consuming ALL my time it has been really fun. I have met some rally amazing people too. [...]
This is very important. Of all the posts I have ever forced you to read this one is at the tippie toppest. Ready? What do you turn your thermostat to at night? (Like in the winter when you live somewhere cold kind of temperature.) Mine is at 62. Sixty-two! I [...]
(Stock Photo from here.) Upon emptying the washing machine this week I discovered something small and dark moving around the bottom of the machine.If you are the sensitive kind, this would be the appropriate time to mosey along. Gonna stick it out huh? It resembled a turd. Ugh. I am [...]
The girls room at bedtime.
Dallan is giggling. This is why I asked for a temple worthiness interview with his counselor. Because it’s hard to ask your wife if she is living a good life, and not doing meth, and doesn’t have millions of secret speeding tickets, and is an overall happy nice person to [...]
The Activity Day’s girls came by to give Bishop a little “heart attack” for Valentine’s Day. He loved it, but I am pretty sure Matthew was the most excited.
Taylor: Uck! Bleck! Yuck! I hate loading the dishwasher! Me: Get over it kiddo, I do it like a million times a day. Pause. Taylor: Nuh-uh. Daaaaad does the dishes. Me: Oh. Pause. Me: That’s true I guess. Dad: Ha! Ha! Blog that one wife! And so it is.

February mild winter. Knock on wood!
As you know I took the kids to St. George last weekend. When Dallan told me he was going to get some things done while I was gone I was elated. I left him with a list of honey do’s and went on my way. The problem is when I [...]
Tired of video’s of Lily yet? Too bad! This one is my favorite so far. To watch it in HD go here.
Matthew adores his iTouch. His latest and greatest application is no less than the infamous iFart. He has found that hiding under blankets and awaiting one of his sisters can either conjure great laughter or offense by “farting” each time they pass by. A few days ago he stepped up [...]
