Hola, chickas! How goes it?? Was you Sunday fabulous? Mine? Yup, it was :)

I got up at 7:30ish, and Tom was already showered, and Eme was just getting out of the shower, and I woke up Jake (his alarm was set for PM not AM - oops) and he got in the shower, and I threw on some clothes (yeah, my hair and make up were still good from last night - ROFL!), and got everyone going.

I worked on some Primary Singing time stuff (I like to have a list of all the songs for Opening/Closing exercises for a few months in advance) for when I'm subbing for it. 2 months, I think. Anyway, I typed it up, and printed it out, and got my singing time lesson together, got Jim and Joe dressed, made sure the dog was fed and walked, and we all headed out at 8:40ish.

Sacrament meeting was good. One of the Bishopric members was moving with the Army, so we got a new counselor. Brother Stoddard is now the 2nd Counselor in the Bishopric. He and Captain America are friends, and he was in the young men's program. He's a nice guy :)

After Sacrament, we all went to our classes. And it was a blur from there. hehe. You know, I LOVE being in Primary, because the Sunday goes SO fast. And I need distractions, you know. Since Captain America is gone. My new buddy Charlotte was called as the Pianist, and I was SO excited to work with her. Yeah, it's gonna be a GREAT next couple of months in Primary, I think. hehe.

After church, we loaded up, and headed home. And I passed the camera around and had the kids take pictures of themselves. hehe.

Joe was trying SO hard to take a photo of himself and couldn't get it to work. So I took one of him, but he still had tears in his eyes. Poor little dude.

So we got home, and I supervised everyone changing their clothes (yeah, if you wear a shirt for 3 hours, it's SO not dirty) and putting them away and getting lunch. And we did a few chores and then watched an episode of Star Trek. It was a very pleasant afternoon. I designed for a while, and then it was nap time for me. I was SO tired.

I slept for about an hour and a half, and felt SO much better when I woke up :) Who knew I was so tired - hehe. And we made dinner, and cleaned up again (how in the world does it get SO messy so fast?) and watched some more Star Trek. Who knew that Spock and Kirk were gangsters. LOL!

Me with my Diet Dr Nasty. OK, so it's generic Diet Dr Pepper from Walmart, but it IS nasty. I'd already had 2 Diet Mt Dews, and a kid brought me this, so I couldn't say no - hehe.

Tom and Boxer
And then I put the little boys to bed at 8pm ish, and snuggled in their beds with them for a little while. They were talking about how many kids they wanted to have when they grew up, and getting married, and coming to visit me, and such. Jim was cute when he asked me to guess the name of his stuffed animal Whale. Oscar the Orca? Nope. Walter the Whale? Nope. Willy te Whale? Nope. "Mom, is' General Grevious". Yeah, why didn't I think of that... hehe.

Jake and Tom and I stayed up and watched episodes of Fringe, and I designed. Yeah, 8 WordArt Packs done today! I have 5 packs per week up through Feb 4, and 3 for the 11th. Holy cow! I'm being SUPER productive! hehe.

Great pics, Bethany. Poor little Joe - he looked so upset! I love the layout that Sharon did - fabulous. Thanks for the wordart. I keep up with you on FB too, but haven't figured out if there's a way to download your WA there.....

Thank you for the WordArt. I have downloaded some before but just began reading your blog with your husband deploying and you being with five children at home. Fascinating reading. Thanks
