Monday May 5- The week started out with a bang again. The boys dumped the milk from their bowls onto Dacie's tray, and she had a milk splashin' morning! Then the boys proceeded to take the marker for their chore charts and write all over their toys with it, of course it is was all over their hands and faces...this is all before school started mind you!
It must me Mothers Day week. While I was answering phones that day (for Taylor and Sons Hauling) Colton slid me this note (below)--what mom would not feel good about herself after that! yeah! I'm HOT! Kids don't lie. I'll keep Colton innocent and in love with me while I can!
For FHE we had the boys pick their favorite scripture stories and we pulled one from a bowl. They went in their room with their dress up clothes and came back out and 'acted out' the story...Dan had to guess what it was. We video taped the whole thing. It was a hoot! It was the story of Korihor (Colton's favorite)--stomping on him at the end gave it away.
(Guess which one is Sterling? ha ha Tallest of them all--and this is even the kids his exact age)
Thursday May 8- While I cleaned out the "empty" fridge ( it has not been cleaned really good since I had Dacie and put myself into labor doing it!) and mopped the kitchen floors, the kids made Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium (Toy Store) in our front room--can you guess what movie from netflix has been the highlight of our week?! I got a babysitter in the late afternoon so that I could do our two week shopping..we have gotten desperate! Dacie and I put on party hats and delivered gift cards to friends/ visiting teachees that evening.
Friday May 9- It was a busy errands kind of day. In the evening we got pizza for Fun Friday and I met Dan at the softball fields after work. We had a triple header of games.We have not touched a ball in 2 years AND I have had a baby in there as well. We lost 2 games and won 1. It took us one game to remember where our bats were. We ended the evening winning a sweet victory...much earned. Dan pitched the last two games-he had a hidden talent I did not know about! We came home to the kids safe and asleep.
Dan saw Mr.Stinky (a skunk) by our back fence and shot him with the pellet gun. He killed him with the first shot (thank heavens...as I wanted it to be painless as possible) The skunk did not even spray! (how lucky are we?!) He was crawling out the fence as he died. Dan gave him a proper burial. Run and Hide little buddies! I hate killing them, but am absolutely convinced that they are PESTS and do no good! (Poor Mr. Stinky below)
Saturday May 10- Dan and I could NOT get out of bed--I have NOT been so sore in YEARS! (even with my hard core workouts). Dan took the boys to their t-ball game in Sedona and Dacie came with me to a girls camp meeting at the same time. We met back at home to await the arrival of Grandma and Grandpa Sorensen. Grandma Sorensen wanted to spend Mothers Day w/ family as none of her kids were around there! We had lunch and headed over to Prescott to play some miniature golf and go out to eat. It was a fun mothers day celebration. Dan and I stayed up late writing my talk for tomorrow!
Dacie was Grandpa's golfing buddy
Sterling's great form
When not on Grandpa Dacie stayed occupied with my club!
Dacie is definitely our Buffalo Princess after some sweet food at a Buffalo Wild Wings.
Sunday May 11-Mothers Day arrived. One of the greatest gifts I got was I did NOT have to do a thing to get the kids ready for church! Dan dressed them, fed them, did their hair, put together the diaper bags/snacks, and made me breakfast to eat in the bathroom while I got ready! All I had to do was get myself ready and my box and talk together. (I did do Dacie's hair per my request). We were early to church! I felt like my talk went well and portrayed the message I was trying to share. I then had to do a pretty big music time presentation to introduce the new song for the month. I got a LONG nap (another sweet present), and a spaghetti dinner with bread/salad and all. We ended the evening with watching home videos of all the kids births. I am AMAZED at how small Colton and Sterling use to be, and I am still in awe at the miracle of birth. Dan and the kids also gave me a new rose bush to plant, dove chocolates (oh yeah!), i-tunes gift card to update my shuffle for exercise, and a pedometer coming in the mail for my exercising plight! Colton made the coolest art collage in class too!
