Sargeant Tibbs 101 Dalmations

Kaitlyn's school did 101 Dalmations. Kaitlyn played a puppy and Sargeant Tibbs, the cat who helps rescue the dogs. She did a really cute job and the play was fun. She loved play practice and acting. Way to go Kait!!

Fly Little Birdie.

When you have your first child it really stops you from doing a lot of things but when you have 4 small children and your blessed, blessed, blessed, possible going senile or will be after last night, blessed, mother-in-law takes 3 of your children, over night, and leaves you with only one it feels like nothing can stop you from doing things, anything. I may go for a walk, I may go to the library, Rob may take half a day off. Ah, endless possibilities. Love having them gone and will love having them back. Thanks Carol.

Hyrum is 5

Hyrum turned 5 on the 7th. We had a party at the house. We live in a neighborhood with a lot of little kids. We handed out 8 invitations and had 19 kids come. I told the parents that siblings who wanted to come could. I loved it. I used to not like throwing birthday parties because they are so much work but the last couple of years I have realized that I don't have to try to impress anyone and kids are going to have fun no matter what I do. So we play a couple of dumb games, open presents, and eat cake. I don't do a theme, I don't spend very much money, and the kids love it. It is a blast and very stress free.
The night before we make a cake of the kids choosing. This is supposed to be a "Little Einsteins" rocket ship. I figure the worse the cake turns out the funner it is to remember it. :)

It was cold but most of the kids ate outside anyway.
Ah the party is over and the sibling fights over the gifts has begun. Happy Birthday Hyrum. We love you!!!!!
