How firm a "Plantation"

For church Carter was asked to give a little talk on Easter, which turned out beautifully and funny at the same time. Rob read him the Easter story and then asked Carter questions and from that he wrote his talk. Some of the key lines from it were, "Lots of people loved Jesus, but the bad guys didn't" and "after 3 days his friends came to see his body" and " Some bad guys, made a bad decision and crucified Jesus on the cross." But my absolute favorite wasn't in his talk at all. Carter kept saying to Rob "What about the Plantation!" Rob sorta confused asked "you mean the plan of salvation?" And Carter adamant replied "NO, the plantation! You know were the wise guy build his house upon the rock, and the other guy on the sand!" Rob finally realized Carter was trying to talk about having a firm foundation! But plantation works just as well.

Ohhh Toodles!

On the way to school this morning Carter and Paige were in the back watching a Mickey Mouse movie. Which normally in the morning no t.v. is allowed before school, but honestly this morning I was just to tired and lazy to tell them no. So on the Mickey Mouse clubhouse cartoon they have a little character named Toodles, who comes when they are in need of help, but otherwise you never see him. So on the show they called for Toodles, Carter say's
"Mom, how come they never show Toodles any other time? What do you think he's doing?" Of course I told him I had no idea, that he's probably was off playing or something. But that answer wasn't good enough for Carter cause he replied "Naw, I think the reason they don't show him is because he's doing his Mousekersize's!"

Piggy ride, anyone?

This week was so great not only was I back home and with my kids again, but Carter had spring break so I got to spend some much needed time with my kidos! So I got some really cute stuff from Carter and Paige. Carter lately has been on an inappropriate kick, meaning he has been informing Rob and I on what's inappropriate and what's not. One of the many things on his list has been some apps on his "finger phone" that he's been downloading. I was in my room folding clothes and Carter walked in with a very serious look on his face. He was holding his finger phone and say's to me, while shaking his head, "Mom, I just don't know what to think. I've been downloading apps but I found one that I think is just to inappropriate for someone my age." I told him then he probably shouldn't put it on his phone and he looked at me very knowingly and said "Yeah mom, I think your right, thanks for understanding."

Paige has been equally entertaining this week, Saturday morning Rob and Carter had left earlier in the morning to go to the BYU football clinic for kids so I was home with Paige. I was just sorta hanging out when I hear Paige wake up. At first it's a small little crackly voice, "Dadddieeee" Then another "Daddddiee" followed by "Daddy where are we?" "Daddy where arrrrreeeee we!" About that time I walk in her room and find her leaning over the side of her crib hands outstretched looking back and forth for Rob. I starting laughing and said, "Paige what are you doing?" She looks at me and puts her hands in a questioning motion and say's "Mommieee, I wost dadddiee!" (mommy, I lost daddy!) So I asked her, how did you do that?" she hung her head and said very sadly "mommy I don't know?"

Then today we were all watching Tangled and there is a part where the guards are chasing someone on horse back and Paige starts giggling and say's "Wook Mommy, he wride the piggy! Wook piggy wride the back!" I guess riding a horse is sort of another form of piggy back!

I'm back....

I know it's been quite a while since I last posted, but I have a very good reason. Mainly that I wasn't with my kids for the last 2 weeks, so ergo no new stories. We went to Pairs for our 10th anniversary! Oh man, I've always been a bread and butter sorta' girl, and now after eating the yumminess over there I don't know how i'm going to go back to regular bread here :(  It is an art, and maybe even a sin to be able to make something that tasty! (mostly a sin because it's over there and i'm here!) So if anyone knows of a good Artisan bakery please forward me the info!
Being the typical mother I am, and having very typical children, the only thing I wanted to do was kiss and hug em' and find out how everything went. And you think I would learn by now that kids are only excited about one thing...... what present they got. We hop in the car with lots of mommy smothering them with loves and kisses. Then after we get our bags in the car and get on the road the and the first thing Carter say's is "Hey mom can you please turn the sound up back here I can't hear the movie with all you talking!" then followed with "Can I please have my presents now!"
At least Paige asked for a second hug.......
