Pictures for your Enjoyment

Just a little update. Here are the kids before church yesterday...thought it turned out REALLY cute. They are such hams. Sydnie has been learning how to ride a 2 wheel bike. I went Yard Saleing on Saturday and got a princess bike, a kiddie pool, a sword (plastic one for Wes), a cash register for Syd. and some beanie babies for Syd's obsession. It was really fun. The cash register was 2 bucks and when we got home and opened it up, there was about 3 dollars in change inside! SCORE. I made a dollar on that purchase! Here she is riding her "new" bike. We just have to keep practicing!!! Friday night we went on a double date with our friends. We went and saw Get Smart. It was actually really funny and pretty clean. It was very entertaining.

I don't know I mentioned before, I am now the 1st counselor in the Primary Presidency. I have been feeling stressed because I seriously have no idea what I am doing. I am over the Cub scouts now too, and I have never even thought about Cub Scouts in my life before. I now have to do sharing time once a month (which I don't know why, scares me to DEATH!) and yesterday was my first day conducting. Good thing the kids didn't know how UN-organized I was!

If you are sick of reading about our garden, you can stop reading now, but it's growing!!!! YEAH!! Our tomatoes, beans, peas and cucumbers are coming up. I also see some tops of some carrots (maybe, or maybe it's weeds) we will see!

No pictures...sorry just boring old words (I left my camera in Spokane). This past weekend we went to a Aaron's Grandma's funeral (Grandma Lila), who died of old age and a few other things. She was a wonderful beloved woman. It was such a pleasure to get to know grandma for the past 7 years. We had the opportunity to live close to them when in Pullman (they lived about 30 min. from there). Grandma Lila was so spirited and such a funny, independent, speak-her-mind kind of woman. Although I knew her for a few short 7 years, she was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, mentor, example, and beautiful woman, not to mention very talented!! We will miss her greatly but we are SO glad she gets to live with Heavenly Father now and she is not in any more pain!

Happy (late) Father's day to all the wonderful Fathers out there! We had a good one of going to church and then eating YUMMY calzones with some friends! We love you Fathers, especially Aaron, my own dad, and father-in law, and the positive rolls you play in our lives and in the lives of our kids. Can I be more like you guys when I grow up?

On another note...I am 32 weeks along and HUGE. I Technically have 8 weeks left, but since Syd and Wes were both 3 weeks early I am hoping this happens again I might have 5 weeks (here's hoping). I am feeling good, just nothing fits me and it's hard for me to move around, bend down etc. We thought of a name...FINALLY, I will let you all know, maybe I'll do a survey! ADIOS!

Bad Weather and Red-Headed Preggos

I woke up this morning to little white flakes falling out of the sky. I thought I might be dreaming. I looked at the calendar and sure enough it was June 10th. I know I wasn't dreaming anymore because my kids came in and were jumping on me. It was then that I realized that it was SNOWING in JUNE!!?!?!?! What WAS GOING ON!? Well, it didn't stick, but it snowed for a good hour after I woke up! Talk about depressing! Where is my warm weather I want so bad? Is it not ALMOST summer?? In 10 days it will be summer! I think mother nature is confused!

Switching friend Megan came to visit from Pullman (who is also pregnant, Due July 4th). We went to Fred Meyer and let the kids play in playland (the GREATEST INVENTION EVER) We decided to dye our hair red together (well reddish) so we picked out our colors, ate cookies at the food court etc. Then we came back here and dyed our hair RED! Sorry the before picture of me is ABSOLUTELY hideous, I look atrocious, but I had to show you a before shot. Then there is after picture of both Megan and me. No, she is not due after me. She is due in 3 weeks and I still have 8 weeks! I am just a gi-normous! So now I have red hair, I'm not so sure I wanted it this dark, but I think it is growing on me. Thanks Megan for coming to play and dying my hair! It was WAY fun!

This n that

Wes has been into Spiderman for the past year and I guess the other day he wanted a "Web" drawn on his face, so Sydnie took it upon herself to do the masterpiece! I saw him and started laughing so hard, I had to take a picture. Then I proceeded to tell both of them that we should probably stick to drawing on paper. You can see Syd in the background of the picture, looking guilty. Luckily it was just ball point pen.

Also Syd's preschool put on an AWESOME carnival last week. There were all kinds of things such as a waterslide, dunking booth, jump castles, carnival games, free hot dogs, hamburgers, cotton candy and popcorn!! The kids and I spent about 3+ hours there and Aaron met us there after work! Free dinner and entertainment...CAN"T BEAT THAT!!

Lastly, we PLANTED our garden the other day (the last post we had just got the planters all ready). Here is what we planted: 3 kinds of tomatoes, carrots, green onions, beans, peas, 2 different peppers, cucumbers and I think that is it. We REALLY wanted a salsa garden, so hopefully that can happen!!!! PLEASE GROW PLEASE GROW! The kids had a BLAST helping us dig, plant, water etc. FUN FUN FUN!
