Ada helping me fold the laundry and just chatting away... randomly telling me that she was feeling warm inside by helping me... (yes, teaching moment!)
Sammy walking by and just saying, "Mommy, I love you." and then walks by.
Evelyn sitting on my feet while I play the piano... then I feel her foot put on my foot to help press the sustain pedal.
I love these guys.

Ever have one of those? Most of the time if something happens I just say whoops... I made a mistake...but what do you say when it's your child? Just laugh I guess. I play the piano in relief society...usually I have volunteers holding baby while I play,occasionally I don't...usually that's just fine. She plays behind me or occasionally plunks a note on the piano. This last Sun she was busy unloading the diaper bag and I didn't think anything of it. Then the teacher comes up to me while I'm playing and says, "You know she's unwrapping your pads right?" Well what do I do? If I stop playing more people will be curious to see why, and until I get them from her she has completely unwrapped some pads and is happily playing with the sticky parts. I guess it doesn't matter too much since we were all women anyways and most of these ladies are moms too.

We got there Tues night, at least a day and a half before anyone else... had another day with just my family, then another two with my cousins and their families. I loved it! Anyone who knows me... Bear Lake, for me, is heaven on earth... Bear Lake with the cousins and family that I've spent 31 years (my parents started taking me at 3 weeks old) of memories with at Bear Lake is amazing! I loved catching up with cousins, missed the ones that are too far away to come, and enjoyed watching my kids make memories of their own.

Playing at the lake, Ada and Jer were making drip castles. Jer made a really tall one and Ada was still working on her castle when I went over to see how they were doing. Ada declared very firmly that daddy's was a chocolate factory and when I asked what hers was, she said, "It's Tiras Minith." It took me a second, "You mean Minas Tirith from The Lord of the Rings?" "Ya."

If Sammy drinks too much before he gets in bed he'll wake up wet.
If he wakes up wet we have to change his sheets, he'll also need a bath.
Playing in the water reminds him that he was watching a show about pirates.
Watching a show about pirates makes him want to play on my phone.
Reminding mommy about her phone reminds her to shower before her dr appt.
Going to the Dr's office reminds the kids that they can ask the receptionist for puzzles.
Seperating puzzle pieces reminds mom why we only have 5 puzzles.
Puzzles remind Sam that he has to use the potty.
To get there quicker, we go next door to the store instead of home.
Being at the store reminds mommy that she's out of vitamins.
Walking to the vitamin isle, the kids decide they want sushi and pears for lunch (sushi, really?)
Evelyn falls asleep before we get home to eat lunch.
Eating lunch reminds mommy that she didn't put new sheets on Sammy's bed
Sammy's bed reminds mommy that it's time to put the kids down for a nap and she sends them to go potty.
Getting sheets from the dryer, mommy notices that the washing machine has dumped it's water all over the floor.
Dumping the water on the floor makes mommy have to rewash half the clean laundry that was sitting unfolded in a pile.
Cleaning the floor, mommy remembers that the kids are still in the bathroom.
Going in the bathroom, mommy realizes that she should have cleaned it days ago.
Putting the toddlers to bed wakes up a hungry baby and we start lunch all over again.

We were talking to our neighbor about them selling their house... I mentioned that my sister was looking and Ada pipes up from the back seat, "And she says Why I outta!" (my sister often says this in a monster voice)
We were serenaded last night by what Jer calls a 'mixed chorus'. We had Sammy singing the Angry bird theme song, Evelyn singing whatever as loud as she can and Ada sing her flag song that she 'wrote' herself. ("Wave Flag for me! Wave Flag for me! So I can see you when I walk by. Wave Flag for me!") We couldn't help but laugh.
Moral of the story, know the person before you make the judgement.

Haha... does she know her dad or what.
