bloggity blog blog
Here is Luke accepting his award at the new scary school. Checkout the Viking mascot in the background. It was a six grade student sweating in there. Baylie talked about it the rest of the day. Lucas, as he goes by at school to his request, was less than thrilled about getting this and immediately afterwards asked me to take him home. Sorry kid, gotta stay.
Sorry for all the blurry pictures.
I am a tomato killer. In my first real attempt. Stupid hoity toity tomato-mania could not make a grower out of me. My neighbor who got hers at Lowes had them growing like a maniac. The Washington wedding was the last killer...and the sun fried them pretty good. Death to my cucumber and green peppers too. Dumb plants. Better luck next year.
This is why I kill myself. This is why I dragged my fat body to the beach this summer, even when it was raining, cold and Darby got a fever...all in the name of fun. Because when Luke started school, the only thing he wrote about his summer was his two days of 'bech caping"...or what we call beach camping.
Photographer Darby, who I made take my picture in the shortest hair I've had in a long time that I paid too much for hair do. I know its like a major rule to not drastically cut your hair the week before you deliver but I thought I could handle it. I feel a bit too stacked in the back....of my hair people, we all know I'm plenty stacked. Do you like my super fancy bathroom? Its really cool to throw your hand towels on the floor. Do it. And then post a picture of it on your blog. Also, I was told that if you take a picture and leave a little space next to your arms it will make them look skinner. I think it totally worked.... all my chorister arms just vanished...wink wink. no seriously though, the other picture darby took was worse so if i have my hand on my hip posing like paris for the rest of my life you'll know why.
Check out this awesome toy. I thought it was all flimsy and my kids would break it, but it was tough. And super light to move. My friend Becky said she has even stood on it cause its so durable (she is the size of lindsey so its not like it held jason or anything, but still those kids were plenty crazy on it...) We have had lots of fun with all the kids in our ward. Lots of boys and we need more boys in our life.
These girls have been dragged to lots of doctors appointments lately. And have been pretty good troopers. This is supposed to be 'scary faces'.
Look at all the fun stuff to play with at the doctor. A bunch of crippled hands. But don't worry, the one of the right can come apart and you can see the inflammation and fake puss inside. They loved it.
Did I mention she dresses herself? Which is why she is wearing an 18 month pj top (which was backwards most of the day) and darby's too big of pants. it sure looks like she is about to whack darby, huh.... I would not be surprised.
