Snow Goose Festival in my Own Backyard?!!

I think I had the best seat in the house. These are pictures of the snow geese in the field just behind my house. And this was before I had a flock of around 75 more fly over my house and land by them. Pretty awesome, huh?!

Smart Leon

On Thursday February 19th I set Karalee and Leon down to color while I had a shower. Well, when I came out Leon had on his paper Kanon's name. I automatically thought that Karalee wrote it for him because it just well looked so dang good. Both of the kids said that it was him, Leon who wrote it. Robert and I were so impressed. We have been noticing a lot of wonderful things Leon has been doing. For example, we have a hook in our kitchen that we hang a calendar and Robert's work keys on it and Leon told me the other day that when he lays down it looks like the letter L the same one that's in his name. I knew he was smart, but he is impressing Robert and I everyday.

The picture is definitely proof that I am not just boasting about my son, but that he is so smart for just being 3 1/2.

Karalee's Valentine's Day Hair Do

I was so excited for Valentine's Day so I could do this cute hair do for Karalee that I saw on one of the sites I like. I think it turned out way cute and she absolutely just loved it. Robert thought it looked pretty awesome too.


Kanon has been teething for a few months and he finally cut his first tooth on February 11th. He was so fussy because of a little cold he has and then cutting that tooth in as well. He finally did it though and now I believe he is trying to get the other one in as well. I am sure he'll be happy once it finally comes in. Also he is rolling all over the place and doing his little push ups---watch out mom he'll be crawling soon.

Oh, he just got the other one in right by it!

For those who know my husband is one of the Sunday School teachers for the adults. Well, this past Sunday was his turn to teach, but he was going to Vegas to pick up some derby cars. He intended on being back Saturday night so he could do the lesson on Sunday. He also said he would take Leon with him and they would stay with my parents. Well, I was thinking that would make for a long trip and a lot of driving for one day. I volunteered to do his lesson for him. Now keep in mind I have never in my life taught an adult class before. So I looked in his manual and the topic was 'How to receive personal revelation from the Holy Ghost', alright I think I could do this because I have had quite a lot of revelations from the Holy Ghost throughout my life. Any how I was so prepared when I went to church and wasn't nervous until I saw everyone's face. I think I did an alright job, even though I did stumble a little. I had a lot of class participation and I used the time wisely. I hope everyone in the class wasn't bored. Right now I am not sure if I would sub again it was a little nerve racking, but it is true that the teacher does learn a lot from their own lessons. I was happy I taught it and that I could help my hubby out.
