Dinner and a Show!

Last night we had a fire to roast hotdogs for dinner.

We also did smores!!!

But mostly we sat around and watched Russ build our new chicken coop!  Good Times!

New Bed

Well everybody helped out and I did get to sleep in my new bed monday night!  It is a little taller and when I got up in the night it was a little farther to the ground than I expected!!!

Now all we (or I should say Russ) has to do is attach the drawer fronts to the boxes and add the drawer pulls!  I cant wait.  Meg and I put polyurethane on the drawer boxes last night so everything is ready to go!!!

Where oh where will I sleep tonight???

This is my room as of 7 am this morning... I am going to shampoo my carpet and I already wiped down the walls and vacuumed!

This is where my new furniture sits!!!!  Hopefully it will be done tonight so we will have a place to sleep.  There is not a better incentive than having NO bed to sleep in.  I guess there is always the guest bedroom... but don't tell Russ that!

You know those clumsy years...

You know when your child goes through those "clumsy" years?  Morgan seems to be getting a double or Triple dose!  It seems as though she is always getting hurt.  Whether it is crashing on her bike, rollerblades or running into the trailer hitch while moving the chickens!!!

It's bigger than He is!

Brayden had an overnighter Friday night and Ben helped him pack his back pack... The thing ended up being bigger than he was!  BUT it only weighed 25 lbs.  Only 1/4 of Brayden's weight!

Piano Recital

Morgan had her first recital on the 11th of this month.  She was very nervous and scared... but she did it and did such a great job that her teacher asked her to play in sacrament meeting this Sunday!

Here is a short video of Morgan and her teacher playing a duet.

She is NOT playing  "Snake Dance" for church!

The latest

Here is the latest picture from Zack.  I love how green the grass is and the beautiful flowers.   He looks and sounds good. (in his letters)  Only one more month til Mother's Day!  We are going to try and SKYPE so we can actually see him!

Country Folk...

I guess that we can now officially be named "Country Folk".  We got our first (and only) batch of chicks about a week ago.

Brayden's friends have them and "they are soooo much fun!!!"  We will see.  He is officially in charge and is doing lots of research to raise them right!  They decided on two different breeds. (you will have to ask them which ones!)

Pippin didn't know what to think... they were peeping very loudly the night that they brought them home... he would get right up next to them until one pecked him... right after this picture.  Now he keeps his distance a little.  :)

Are you Hungry yet?

We went opening day... and we all liked it!  It is violent but so is the book!  It does bring up topics to talk about!  :)
