MIA IS SO RANDOM

I WAS STANDING AT THE DRYER FOLDING LAUNDRY THIS MORNING AND MIA WAS STANDING IN THE HALLWAY AGAINST THE WALL RUBBING HER BODY BACK AND FORTH.

ME: MIA STOP DOING THAT (BECAUSE I WAS WORRIED SHE WAS GETTING FUZZBALLS ON HER CLOTHES)

MIA: BUT MOM, IT'S GOOD EXERCISE

ME: OKAY......KEEP GOING

MIA: I DON'T LIKE EGGS ANYMORE

ME: YOU DON'T LIKE EGGS?

MIA: NOPE....EXCEPT GRANDMA'S EGGS

ME: GRANDMA MARTIN'S EGGS?

MIA: YEP, YOUR MOM'S EGGS

WHAT A RANDOM GIRL.....I LOVE HER

DALLIN IS READY FOR CHURCH


DON'T ASK ME WHY MY LITTLE BOY HAS A FASCINATION WITH WEARING GIRL CLOTHES. BEN'S NOT A FAN BUT I THINK HE'S DANG CUTE AT LEAST WHILE HE'S LITTLE

MIA IN HER NEW FAVORITE JACKET

MIA WAS GIVEN THIS JACKET FROM SOME PEOPLE IN OUR WARD AND SHE DISCOVERED IT IN THE BAG AND INSTANTLY LOVED IT. NOTICE THE GUM IN HER MOUTH? YEAH.....I DON'T LIKE HER HAVING GUM BUT SOMEHOW SHE ALWAYS GETS IT. WHEN I PROTEST SHE SAYS, "GRANDMA ENGSTROM EATS GUM AND GIVES IT TO ME SO I CAN HAVE IT." THANKS ALOT GRANDMA ENGSTROM.....NEXT TIME MAYBE YOU SHOULD TRY GIVING HER A PIECE OF FRUIT OR VEGETABLE

POTTERY FUN

AS PART OF MIA'S BIRTHDAY, I TOOK HER TO A PLACE WHERE YOU CAN PAINT YOUR OWN POTTERY AND DO OTHER STUFF. IT IS A GREAT PLACE. I WANTED TO DO SOMETHING TOO BUT WE ARE TOO POOR RIGHT NOW. I GUESS I WOULD RATHER HAVE GROCERIES! ANYWAY, MIA PAINTED A LITTLE BOX IN THE SHAPE OF A PURSE, AUNT RUTH DID A GLASS PIECE FOR HER BATHROOM AND AUNT MARYANN DID A SCALLOPED BOWL. IT WAS LOADS OF FUN.

CAMPING IN THE YARD

ACTUALLY......IT WAS MORE LIKE SLEEPING IN THE TENT IN THE YARD. I DID NOT PARTICIPATE BECAUSE MY SHOULDER WAS STILL VERY PAINFUL AND I NEEDED SOME GOOD SLEEP. BEN AND THE KIDS HAD A GREAT TIME AND EVEN THOUGH THE PICTURES AREN'T DARK IT WAS VERY DARK OUT THERE. DALLIN LOVED THE FLASHLIGHT. THE PICURES SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES ABOUT HOW HARD IT WAS TO GET THE KIDS TO POSE FOR THE PICTURES. I THINK IT WAS BECAUSE IT WAS TOO DARK TO SEE ME.

A LUMP OF COAL

Ben and Mia were sitting on the couch earlier and Mia was asking Ben what she was gonna get for Christmas. He replied by saying, "I don't know, maybe a lump of coal.' Mia said, "a lump of coal?" Ben was like "yeah, a lump of coal, you burn it in a fire." Mia paused for a minute and then said, "I don't think I wanta lump of coal." Ben and I just started laughing and then Mia shouted, "dad, don't laugh at me......coal makes fires and I might get burnt.".......it was good for a laugh anyway. Maybe you had to be here.
