A Friday Morning

Jack Dale is sick today with a fever. Sooo sad to see him in a bad mood and so lethargic!
He did, however, muster up enough energy to create a "robot dad"! Supposedly he is going to make a movie about him!

Gracie looks so grown up in this picture! This morning as we were laying in my bed I was cuddling the boys and Grace was being impatient about breakfast. I said "how about we pretend that we (Jack Max, and I) are the kids and you are the Mommy (hoping she would go get some cereal and bring it to us.....and stop whining! Besides she thrives on being in charge so I thought it was worth a shot!). She made a thoughtful expression and said shaking her head and raising her eyebrows "then I would just have to clean all day!" It was so funny.
She is being a big helper today and she even got dressed all by herself (FYI she did an amazing job... she put together an adorable outfit with leg warmers and all!!)

Maxwell Dennis is running a fever too. He's taking an early nap since he was up most of the night. This morning while I was taking my bath he came in and "read" me Peter Rabbit, one of his favorites... he pretty much has it memorized. He was so animated and sooo cute! When he was finished, he said loudly "The End!" and ran out, shutting the door behind him.

Next on the Agenda...... we are going to make a matching game with Buzz and flowers....all in one game! Brilliant! Ohhh....the joys of four year old twins!

Monday night for Family Home Evening
we popped popcorn in our living room
and watched the Jazz game!
The kiddies loved it!
As a bonus the Jazz WON! YAY!

I'm so in love with my Kiddies!

Beauty Tips

"Below is a wonderful poem Audrey Hepburn wrote

when asked to share her "beauty tips."

It was read at her funeral years later."


For attractive lips , speak words of kindness...

For lovely eyes , seek out the good in people.

For a slim figure , share your food with the hungry.

For beautiful hair , let a child run his/her fingers through it once a day.

For poise , walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone....

People, even more than things, have to be

restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed;

never throw out anyone.

Remember, if you ever need a helping hand,

you will find one at the end of each of your arms.

As you grow older,

you will discover that you have two hands ;

one for helping yourself and

the other for helping others.

--Thanks Laura!
