About 20 minutes before church was out, I was standing in the back of the primary room (I teach the 11 year olds) holding Hadlie trying to keep her from fussing. She suddenly tightened her whole body and let a big ol' poop out. Unfortunately the power she exerted was so strong that the poop flew right out the side of her diaper and down my skirt and onto the floor! I'm not even kidding! A little boy next to me saw the whole thing happen and was giggling on the back row as I ran out holding my skirt so I wouldn't drip any more poop on the floor. It was pretty dang funny!

Okay, so I'm exaggerating. But they do have some pretty fun activities. Tuesday night they had a huge screen on the baseball field and people bring their blankets and treats and they played "Alvin & the Chipmunks". We decided that would be a good excuse to have cousins over for a sleepover, so Hailey and Leah came with us to the outdoor movie and slept over and the next day I took the kids with Crysta and a bunch of my friends to a bird show over at the Hutchings museum. The kids loved it! That night Casey and I went to see the Jordin Sparks concert at the Scera Shell. We got season tickets and have been enjoying all the fun concerts and plays. Anyway, I was never a Jordin Sparks fanatic or anything, (I liked Melinda Doolittle that season of Idol) but I liked her in concert. She is a cute girl, very nice, with some incredible vocals! I like her more now that I've seen her live. I actually might go and buy her CD now. The week has been so fun so far, lots of activities, and we still have Maddux's dance group who will be performing in the parade on Saturday to look forward to. What kind of mom would let their child play in this disgustingly dirty fountain? Oh, that would be me.

We have a twinhome that we rent out in Santaquin, and recently our tenant moved out. We went in to clean and about died! It was so filthy disgustingly dirty, and it has taken us the past two weeks of cleaning, repainting, recarpeting, weeding, scrubbing boogers, fly guts, and dirt off walls, pressure washing, etc.... to get the home looking good again. That is one of the reasons I have posted in awhile. My internet was down the past week as well. Anyway, our new tenants just moved into a "like new" twin home, and we are praying they will take care of it! After working at the court house and seeing eviction cases, I vowed I would never do the landlord thing, and here we are doing it! Hopefully it will pay off when we sell the place!

I thought that this Friday we could all take a flash back to the good ol' photo booth days! There was this convenience/drug store in the University Mall back in the day with a photo booth that cost $1 for four pictures. Anyone that came with me to the mall was pretty much required to go take goofy pictures in the photo booth with me. The picture with Mitsy is hilarious! She was two and I was ten and I was so frustrated because I spent my $1 to get pictures with her and she sat and cried. I wouldn't let her go and I just kept smiling away. The picture with my cousin Natalie was taken when we were about 13, she has 5 kids now, it is hard to believe how time flies. My family had the chance to go to dinner with her family while she was in town this week and it was a blast. The other pictures are between 9th grade and 11th grade with my best friends growing up, Erin, Kate, and Shea!

My birthday was Monday, and I was spoiled! Ryllie made me a pretty (pretty crazy) bead necklace and a card. Casey bought me a treadmill! I am sooo excited, I've been wanting one forever, and have been wanting to get back in shape. It is sweet with a fan, and a TV, I am loving it already. He also took me to Chef's Table for dinner and to a movie. We had a great time. I love birthdays because I don't have to cook or clean! Ees da best! I love it! (I'm trying to write this so you read it like Nacho Libre. Did it work?) Here's a cute picture of my kids on my birthday.-
So, I don't know quite how to do the whole video thing yet, so here is some pictures of Hadlie doing her new spitting trick. Anybody know how to spell the sound effects? Something like ppplllbbbffppllbb. Ha ha! Just try to imagine what that sounds like and that is Hadlie's new trick!
