Today, October 25, 2010

  • It took the kids over 2 1/2 hours to get in an hour of practicing on their instruments.
  • Ken made dinner tonight. He put stuff in the crock pot on his lunch. He may be in charge of dinner from this day forward.
  • Every time I hear Hoedown from Rodeo by Aaron Copland the sentence, 'Beef, it's what's for dinner' comes to my mind.
  • When we were reading scriptures tonight one of the kids read the phrase 'and make preparations to defend our-selves' as 'and make preparations to defend our-slaves'. It make me chuckle.
  • I want new scriptures but I can't decide between the compact burgundy quad and the standard size burgundy Triple and Bible. SUCH DECISIONS!
  • Nicole's reading level had gone up TWO grade levels since we started homeschooling her less than 2 months ago. Hooray for Nicole!
  • I made sugar cookie dough today that we're going to cut out and bake tomorrow. It's a new recipe. I'll let you know how it goes.
  • I like the word Zamboni.
  • I bought a pair of wool suit pants for Ken tonight at Value Village. They only cost $10.00. That's a steal for suit pants!
  • We had the Vest's over for Family Home Evening tonight. It was really fun. We are teaching our children the scripture mastery scriptures in the Book of Mormon. Then next month on the 5th Monday we are going to have a mini scripture chase. The kids had a great time marking blue Books of Mormon. It was a nice evening.
Did I already show this photo? I took it at the church I went to growing up. I love these steps! They are crooked and scary and I still love them.

Good Night! 


  1. Zamboni!!! that's fun to say :)

    wow, I want to find a deal on suit pants like that!

    oh and I agree, husbands ARE the best dinner makers.

  2. You know what I like? How random your posts sometimes are. That just makes them so fun to read.

    Despite my classical-music upbringing, I will always think of that song as "the beef song".

    "Zamboni" IS a fun word!

    I can't wait to hear how those sugar cookies turn out! If they're successful, definitely post/e-mail the recipe!

    And GO NICOLE! That is SO awesome! :)

    That is all.
