I was listening to this song the other day and thought it would be neat to do a blog post for my children with it. The song's by Jenny Phillips and Tyler Castleton, (Thanks Racqual, for the CD!) and is called,

"My baby is a genious.
My baby's so doggone smart, do doot dooo.
My baby is a genious,
And I love her with all my heart."
Momentous things that happened this past week:
Chad beat Brent Thompson in racquetball, for the second time EVER.
I said the closing prayer in sacrament meeting in SPANISH, for hopefully the LAST time ever. Truthfully, I hope my Spanish improves to where that won’t be such a stressful experience, but for now, once was enough.
Today, I had a cultural experience. I spent seven hours with Elia Johnson. Wow. That’s all I can say.

Happy Valentine's Day! Usually we have cereal and milk around here for breakfast, but Valentine's Day on a lazy Saturday calls for an exception.
The rest of our day included making valentines and playing wii. Samuel knocked me out every time in the boxing ring. I cannot figure that sport out. It must be a man thing. Lily went to see Hotel for Dogs with Hannah and her crew for her birthday, and Lexi went babysitting with Brinley! What a big girl! We finished our day with Family Movie Night, Dad's pick. He chose "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom". It's rated PG, but it had been a long time since we'd seen that movie, and we had both forgotten about the "Snake Suprise", the descending spike room and the heart ripping scene. It was a little intense for the kids, and I'm glad it will be many weeks 'till it's Daddy's pick again. Maybe we'll have time to preview his movie first.

I've never chosen the freeze dried refried bean option at the cannery before until this month. I figured, being in the Spanish branch now, surely I know someone who can tell me what to do with them. Sure enough, Elia Johnson, who was there canning with me, told me how to cook them up. I told her I usually just use the regular canned ones you get at the store. She said, "Oh, don't do that! Those are gross! But these, these are Mexican approved." So, now you know.

By the way, this is me, feeding # 6 Sage, and the other picture is of #1 Lexi and #2 Lily doing what they like best.
