tiny babes

I was looking through some of the pictures in my computer to see if there were any that I could erase...and I stumbled across these from 2 years ago.

I forgot how little they once were.

I'll leave you with my personal favorite of Connor.... randomly licking his baby sister...

Yep, that about sums him up!
It reminds me of this post.

I'll be your Huckleberry

I knew that our warm weather was coming to an end, so for our 3rd quarterly activity this year in Primary, my presidency and I decided to have one last hurrah outdoors! On Saturday we had a Tom Sawyer themed activity. A lot of the kids came dressed as Tom Sawyer or Becky Thatcher. We had about 32 kids in total when all was said and done.
Aunt Polly came to talk to the kids about who Tom Sawyer was and what kind of fun activities he and his friends played back then. Next, we got to try them out.
We had a pie eating contest:

And thumb wrestling contests:

A little bit of cracker whistling:

Then it was on to the relay's. First up; sack races:

Then wheelbarrow races and 3 legged races:

They each got a turn at catching fish:

Picket fence painting:

And the log roll:

After all of that fun and games we rested and ate our yummy dirt cups with worms!

Then we sang some songs and ended the activity with a good old fashion tug of war.

I sure do love being in Primary and can't say that I would have more fun anywhere else!

This is just a small list of the random things Connor said to me today:

*"When is my baby coming out of me?"
* "Do we have bones in our mouths?"

*"Do I look like a transformer with this star wand in my toes?"
* "Did you know you are made of plastic?"

*(Sniff) (Sniff) " Mmmmm... it smells like you think Jesus is making popcorn?....will he give me some?"

Mr. and Mrs. Olsen

Connor has a girlfriend.
Her name is Isa.
She likes people to call her Sister Olsen.
And last night.
It became official.

This is how they came out of the playroom...
Apparently the theme for the bridesmaids was sequence.
Dancing at the reception.
And who could have a descent wedding without a handsome ring bearer and a half naked, messy haired flower girl?
