Funny story: I left Bart in charge of writing Zhoee's name on the cupcakes while I was making a salad. When he announced "I'm done, how does it look?" I noticed he had spelled her name wrong. HA! He was just too into his work- He wrote it "Zhooee"good thing they were cupcakes and we could just take out the extra "O". Thanks for making me laugh babe!
After Jadon was at school and we ran some errands every 5 min. or so Zhoee was asking where Jadon was. She misses him already. Even though they fight and bug each other all day she just doesn't know what to do without her big brother.
I told her we could do something fun for her birthday today and the first thing she blurted out was "I want a pop-ee, and go to the park". (her name for slurpee's) So that's what we did. Bostyn, Zhoee, and mommy celebrated at the park this morning. Get this- last Tues night we went to the same park and during the week have noticed one of Zhoee's flip flops was lost. This morning while she was sliding down the slide I noticed it, just laying there. HOW FUNNY!! We had no idea where she had lost it, either.

Jadon is such a smartie pants- he's going to love 1st grade. He said he can't wait for break and P.E. He's very good a math though and I think he'll have a great year. Last night he asked Bart to give him a fathers blessing and asked Bart to bless him that he can understand everything and not forget it and that he will have fun at lunch. Zhoee asked for a blessing right after his was finished because she thought it was such a neat thing. Thanks for being a great example J, We love you!!!

Bart participated in his 4th Xterra Triathlon today and his relay team did awesome. They took third place!!!!!! Bart has to mountain bike from Pine Lake up to Snow Basin its over 12 miles and straight up hill the whole distance. Last year they took third place too, but they were in a more competetive division this year. Bart did some damage to his back 2 weeks ago while he was at youth conference and wasn't sure how well he would ride. But he did great!!!!! Congrats!!!! I was really bad with taking pictures (I don't know how I forgot to get one of their team) so, we'll wait till pics are out on the website and post one of him riding. Good job babe, you amaze me.

Yummy!!! Today I picked some tomatoes and got my mom's recipe for her fresh salsa. I love this stuff and can scarf it. Look how yummy. Bart keeps getting caught popping the garden goodies straight into his mouth when he's in the backyard instead of letting me cook with them. He insists veggies tast much better when they are home-grown.
I had to post a surprising pic of Bossy when I went to check on the kids in the yard. I thought I was safe just checking the gates to make sure he couldn't go in the front and in the road. Nope now he's climbing all the way up to the tree house. I hurry and took a pic and then went to help him down. He shoved my helping hand out of the way and climbed down the ladder himself. I swear my other kids didn't do that at 15 months. He's not my helpless baby anymore.

I let the kids have ice cream cones in the backyard after lunch. They had been playing outside most of the day and so it was a nice treat for a HOT day. The each shared with Bossy because I didn't want him to have his own and smear it all over everywhere..... I guess he just wasn't satisfied. I went upstairs for a couple min. and he had helped himself to licking the container clean. Clever little thing- he tipped over the garbage found the ice cream container and got busy!!! I just mopped my kitchen an hour before his little raid. (doesn't it always work that way)
Bart and I went to the Logan Temple last night and I told him the story and we both just laughed and immediately missed our cute little trouble makers.

Yes, I was amongst the thousands of people who waited in line for hours Friday night to get their hands on this book. I waited with a couple friends from our neighborhood and we had a great time just sitting around without our kids for a few hours. I'm about 2/3 through the book and it is GOOD!!! I won't give anything away but it's sooo worth reading for anyone who hasn't got it yet.
