This could be fun...

Please Children...let's play nicely!

1. As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember!2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you.

This seems to be the theme at our house for little "Pukey Lukey". Luke has always been a spitty baby, but now in addition to that, he has poopin problems, which I am sure if he were older he would appreciate me talking about. We seem to be able to fix the reflux problems, but the side effects of that are tummy problems. So poor Luke gets to suffer until mom figures it out. If you have any suggestions, I would love to hear them all. In the mean time Luke loves to eat. We never have any problems getting it down, it's just keeping it down.
Karson has found his love in life, and right now it's taking care of his baby brother. He has been such a great help to me. Luke light's up every time Karson is around.
I plan on taking full advantage of Karson's willingness to help before it goes away. They are my two best boys. Love you guys!!!


OK, let me preface this by saying that I am a firm believer in outlet safety plugs. And for those of you who don't have them, or think that your kids are "OLD ENOUGH TO KNOW BETTER" this post is for you. Let me also take a moment to express, as a mother, my gratitude to a loving Heavenly Father who has angels constantly surrounding his little ones.

This all happened two nights ago when I was out enjoying the evening, when Aaron (very calmly I might add) asked me to come inside. When I walked in I could smell this awful burning smell, and saw that my outlet right inside my front door was black. I asked what happened and Aaron said just go and check Abby. This is what I found on the counter. Abby was visibly shaken, but O.K. I asked her what had happened and she said that she had put her keys in the outlet. I gave her the once over to make sure that she was alright, said a prayer, and started to yell.
As you can see from the pictures, one of the keys has about 1/4 of the end completely melted away. Aaron said that he could see the sparks clear in the other room.
We were so lucky that Abby was not hurt worse. She only has a small spot on her leg, it looks like it was burnt with a sparkler. After I was done yelling, and the mood was lighter, she said that she made (with her little lisp) "Fireworkths in the housth." WE WON'T BE DOING THAT AGAIN!!!
The moral if this story is that the safety plugs do work, until they are 4. :) We are just glad she is O.K.

What better way to start our families blog than with a fun summer tradition. Every year my kids await the stromberry harvest at the Bishop's house (my mom and dad's). The kids love to go out with Grandpa and find the biggest, reddest berries and, eat them on the spot.
And of course mom had to get in on the fun too.
All done for this year.....shucks.!!! Thanks Grammy and Granpa.

Please don't forget to notice that the kids have the most awsome haircuts in the world.......... Auntie Pammy Rocks!!!!
