Just a little scripture study before church

The kids were being unusually quiet so I was worried as I went to check on them. When I got to their room there they were, reading their scriptures!

Quinn had TWO baths today!

Collin's 5th Bithday!

Collin turned five this last wednesday. It's hard to believe that time has flown as fast as it has. We are so thankful for the humor and joy that he has brought to our family. He is such a great big brother to Gracie and Quinn. He watches out for them and takes care of them and they love him so much! I can't wait to see what fun times we will have with him in the next five years!

One of the things that Grandma and Grandpa got him was a set of Lincoln Logs. Collin LOVES these and hasn't stopped playing with them since he got them (he even slept with the huge tin the first night). They also took us all to a mexican resteraunt where the waiters sang Happy Bithday to him while he wore a huge sonbrero! How fun!

Emmie the Dog

Here is a picture of my first "Glove Dog". I really do like the way it turned out. I got the pattern free here I will eventually get the book and then I will be making these cute little guys for my kids and all my nieces and nephews! I LOVE the fabric that I used for the patch around her eye and for her skirt (thanks Joy!) The skirt was a last minute addition and I'm so glad that I decided to make it. I also think the heart button on her chest is sweet and I think that I will put one on all my future sock and glove animals, sort of as my signature. Gracie really loved this little dog and named her Emmie, we decided that we would make her a cat and she wants to name it Chloe. Isn't that funny? Those are names of girls in her nursery at church. Emmie went to Monica for her 3rd birthday!

Monica had her birthday party yesterday at the Everett Children's Museum. What a great idea. The kids had a blast. Quinn's favorite part was the cupcakes!
