Ada and I made cute headbands for cousins birthdays
My kids decided that shredding the junk mail was funner than any other toys
We visited the mall play place with cousins Aubrey and Devin
Ada's starting to decide what to wear by herself... I love the boots with the boy coat. Looks like something I would have done.
Mommy got a new piano book and tried to try it out... still haven't been able to without someone taking over.
We went to both cousin's Grace and Anya's bday parties... unfortunately I didn't have a camera at the other one... but they were both fun and both Ada and I enjoyed going to both.
Evelyn got her first piggy tail.
Ada had her first cavity filled. Unlike the x-rays... filling the actual cavity only took about 10 minutes. They showed her all the tools and told her where to put her arms and that she needed to be as still as a statue... and she did.
We had cousins come play
We fenced with them... Ada and I also started the next mini-fencers class up at our fencing place.
We went to the Thanksgiving Point train show
We didn't really have any snow at all... so our cats decided to be flowers
Evelyn learned to pull herself up to stand holding on to things
I was made these by my Ecuadorian friend... I you don't know what they are... they are chifles and are made from plantains. They make them to go in the soups or on the side like chips... I miss some of the foods from Ecuador. Chiviche being one of them. Achotillos being another... and fresh pinapple and coconuts... etc...
Jer, Jim and I also got a chance to go to the Opera company's Rigoletto in SLC. Very well done! I really like the third act and an unexpected flub... Gilda's boat got caught on the doorway as she was trying to get off the stage... it took 4-5 tries to get it righted... and being the awful people that we are, Jer and I giggled as quietly as we could about it.
Then on our temple trip last night we saw so many people that we love and we're glad to see in the temple. We saw Mary and TJ Bronley, Mandy and Aaron Bristow, The Wheelhouses, Jane Allred, Larry Simonson, Alan and Rachelle Robertson, Tiffany Smith and who knows who else... It was really neat to be able to see friends and family taking advantage of temple blessings... and again it was reiterated to my heart how the blessings of eternity are for everyone that's willing.
