This weekend saw not only Jer saving a baby scrub jay from our cat and the kids begging to keep it, and grape picking time with our Robertson grandparents... it also brought with it my sister, Sharon's, family coming and spending the night in preparation for our baby's blessing. Cousin Emma loved holding baby Seth, and all my kids LOVED playing with cousins all night long.

Things I haven't blogged about:
-Chalk the Block. The kids had a blast drawing all over the Riverwoods mall sidewalks, and I had a blast visiting with my sister, Janelle, and trying the Waffle Love truck finally... delicious!
-Regional conference was awesome.
-The Ogden Temple dedication was amazing. To think, when I was born 33 years ago there were only 35 temples in the world. Today there are 143 and there are 27 more in process. It's really neat to also think that I've been able to attend the dedications for the Mt Timpanogos, Nauvoo, Winter Quarters, Ogden, Brigham City, Draper, and the Oquirrh Mountain temples. How lucky we are to live in a time that allows us the opportunity to not only serve in the temple and bring ourselves and our ancestors closer to Christ, but that we can regularly do so. I loved hearing Pres. Eyrings testimony about the covenants and blessings of the temple.
-Family night at the Discovery Park playing cops and robbers with the fun family of one of Jer's co-workers.
-My 6 week follow up with my doctor where I completely forgot to ask them a question that I've had in my head for the last 6 weeks... nice.
-Making Ada's Elsa costume for both her birthday and Halloween.
Overall a very busy and fulfilling week.

I am a complete dork. I was just rushing to get the kids to the carpool on time and sent Sam to the car with his toast, which had peanut butter on it. Their oldest daughter is severely allergic to peanuts... And I know that! Now they have to clean out their car before she can ride in it again. I offered to clean it for them, but I sure feel like a dork.

Our kids don't have to be great pianists. That's not my dream, though I would love to hear them play and enjoy it. Jer's and my goal is that they can read music well and use it if they want to. Love it.
