I like to be ready for birthdays a couple weeks in advance so that I can enjoy their birthday and not run around worrying about what to get them. Here are my Sam and Evelyn presents for this year. I didn't have the hat pattern but I saw it on pintrest and adapted one of my own... Rainbow Dash is her favorite pony. I personally think the eyes on the minion are rather creepy but Ada assures me that it's awesome and that Sam will love it. She's also requested a minion of her own for her birthday.... Maybe a purple one? Sam is obsessed with money right now. I told him this year that instead of buying him presents that we'd give him money and he could buy his own... He's rather excited about that.

Volunteering in the kids school is never just me... It's me and the younger kids. Evelyn gives Sam a hug and sits next to him listening to the teacher if she doesn't want to sit by me. (She sits by Sam in Primary too.) One of the times we went, Evelyn gave Sam a big hug and kiss. Sam,
a little shocked says, "Evelyn! There's no kissing in Kindergarten! "
"Jesus loves me and I'm part of the church. Jesus came to Joseph Smith and told him that the church had been destroyed. Jesus told Joseph to make the church again so it won't be destroyed again. Joseph called new apostles and gave us the Book of Mormon. I'm glad that Jesus died for me. I love Jesus all day long."
Now Sam has been assigned a talk on the First Vision, which he told us all about but he's insisting on writing down every detail and having me spell out every single word for him. We're only about a sentence into the talk.... And Evelyn's been assigned the scripture. I swear that our Primary is more than 4 kids. I think that Junior Primary is about 30.
Lately I've also been tearing out 3 of our flower beds, tying back the roses and planting our tiny garden. I'm not the best gardener but I guess I won't learn if I don't try right? Sam's Kindergarten class was doing a unit on Africa so they asked if I'd bring some stuff in. The kids got a kick out of the drums, money and broom. Sam was very helpful and carried things around to show all the kids. Super cute. They liked the story about Janelle and I eating lunch in the park one day and the monkey stealing our sandwiches. My mom and Janelle came over to visit too... it's been fun.

I gave all three boys haircuts before bed last night. I did Sam, then I did Seth... I thought he'd scream. He actually really liked the clippers... He just didn't like me trying to blend things in with the scissors. So he has half a haircut... At least he doesn't have a rats tail or baby comb over anymore. We sent Sam to bed and put Seth on the floor while I cut Jer's hair. It was okay for about five minutes, then Seth decided he was sad and crawled through all the hair to hold my feet. Jer was joking that he needed to toughen up... It'll put hair on his chest.
