Not too fancy and really cold

We recently discovered the children's books about Fancy Nancy (thank you to Becki and Eva). We now read about Nancy Clancy aka, Fancy Nancy everyday. She has a "posh puppy" and Sam really likes the sound of that. (We already have a high maintenance dog named Penny).

I love Wednesdays. They are all about my kids. Sam and Emily both have dance, then Emily has piano. I don't teach at all in the afternoon on Wed, and I get to chat with good friends while waiting for the girls in the dance classes. Today we made the mistake of walking to dance. Even though it is just a block or so away, it was so cold today, we were only half way there before the chill got to Samantha. She almost didn't make it she was so upset. We are looking forward to Saturday. Hopefully we will stay home, stay warm, get a lot accomplished, have a good time together, and not get sick (lately that is what weekends have been used for).

I recently joined an online book club called I have enjoyed reading people's book reviews and seeing what my friends are reading/have read so much that I check the site several times a day just to see if anyone has added anything. I also love seeing what my nephews and nieces are reading. I feel like I understand them more when I see that we have read the same book and both enjoyed it.

Ahh Sunday

Sunday is a busy day. I am glad I don't shop and do other things on Sunday; it would be impossible to fit all of Sunday's activities in. I just got called to Senior Primary Chorister, that is on top of my other 3 callings. Today I subbed for Junior Primary, the little one's are really funny. It was hard for me to not bust up in laughter in front of everyone today. There was a little boy how was trying to fit his head through the sleeve of his coat, and a little girl who was poking her toes out of the holes in her tights, and the primary presidency was just kickin it in the back chatting (I am sure it was about primary stuff). What a funny day in primary. After church I went right to the computer to start working on one of my other callings, and Mike went to a scout meeting. I forgot to feed the kids so all the happiness we brought home from church erupted into fighting and ornery attitudes. All settled and was well after a snack. We went to my parents house this evening because I left my phone there yesterday. Now that I write it down it doesn't seem like that much, but it felt like ton, may be because we didn't go to bed till 2:30am. We had a great time visiting some good friends, the Williams family, last night in Brigham City. We were having too much fun and forgot to leave at a reasonable hour. Now it is the end of the day, we are making preparations for the new week. Here we go, starting a new week. It always flies by. I hope to savor the little moments that I will never get back, Samantha's hugs, Emily's jokes, and Andrew's babble. Good night. Sleep tight.

Little Man

Andrew is so silly. If he isn't sleeping, he is usually hamming it up. He loves Sammy's Dora chair, he fits in it perfectly. Luckily Sammy adores her little brother so she doesn't mind sharing the chair with him. He babbles and squaks, and his eyes twinkle when he looks at you.

What a Heart Breaker

She just melts me. My kids have me.
