When words go wrong

Every night before bed, the kids each read a scripture from the "kid's" Book of Mormon and then Ed or I read the same scripture from the Book of Mormon. Bree who is in kindergarten, is very anxious to read without help. So almost every word is sounded out next to a very patient daddy and a mommy hoping to speed up every word until the end so I can have some peace and quiet. (I know, I am a bad example. Quit your lecturing you judgemental people.)

Tonight, it happened. She sounded out the word "darkness". VERY SLOWLY. All the sounds were perfect, then I told her to "snap it". Which just means put it together. Well, it came out "canoe a$$". I was laughing so hard, I was crying! Even Ed was cracking up. He rarely loses his composure, especially at prayer time. Bree was so good though, she didn't get offended or anything! She just kept reading.

I love being a mom.

These are just recent pics. This one of Bree in the green shirt I took today. A pic of Donny's new smile. And Halloween pics. Oh, and our snow day! October28, we woke up to snow. Crazy. It was nice for Halloween, though.

Pumpkin Carving

The Monday night before Halloween each year we carve pumpkins for family home evening. Here are our pics. David was less than excited to carve, so he pretty much just ran around the house with this little pumpkin.

For the Unimpressed

I have heard way too many of you that were not impressed by my giant belly shot. I stood in front of the kitchen wall this time. Bree took the picture so it is shot upwards. Not the most flattering picture of me. Enjoy!
