To the outside world we all grow old. But not to brothers and sisters. We know each other as we always were. We know each other's hearts. We share private family jokes. We remember family feuds and secrets, family griefs and joys. We live outside the touch of time. ~Clara Ortega

rumicube, yardwork and belle

So you might be wondering what Shae might be up to now adays. Has she found new hobby or game. Well this picture says it all.

Ok so 7 of my kids moved and that leaves just Lexi and Parks to do all the yardwork and nope they don't complain. Every saturdy rain or shine they're out there. Lex has many rose pricks to prove it.

They are on their way: Yep the princess dresses will be arriving anyday now for grandmas 2

princesses. I'm crossing my fingers that they fit.

So what do you do when you are bored? Parker was saying how bored he was and this is what we came up with. Flipping the ping pong paddle back and forth as you hit the ball and counting. At first Parker got 3. By the end it was 169. He won! Who knew that doing this could work up a sweat?
Where did Parks ball go?
Look it's Pirate Parker!

Elder Tan and his mouth

It all started between Tan and Cas bragging about who had the biggest mouth. Now is that something to brag about? Who do you think won?

Tan obviously has the biggest one in the MTC that's for sure.
Watch out for the apple juice Elder!

My newest grandbabies

All of you saw Parks pen he made last year. Amazing that he made that by himself with no instruction so we couldn't say no to chicks after all that effort right? But actually I wanted some as well. Friday morning the store got some chicks in so Parker and I dashed to get them and got back minutes before his bus came for school. The first chick pictured is Lex's favorite. It will hatch blue eggs. Cool huh? The other 2 could be roosters. I love silkies (they are pretty yes these chickens are definitely styling chickens) so I'm taking a chance on them. It's 50-50. We'll know in 8 weeks rather or not they might be someone's dinner. Agggh I hope not. We had a black one but while at church it got in its water (which wasn't much) but enough to make him cold and he was dead when we got home. Despite lots of tears he was buried and we learned a hard lesson. Wednesday they will get more chickens in and we will update you with our new additions. They love to be held. Shae loves them and they don't mind her squishing them. We let them out today on the floor and the white one was slipping and sliding. Funny site. Then we put them on the carpet and she was like I'm a free lady. Whoo hoo and was running everywhere and jumping on our laps. The other 2 just wanted to cuddle.
