April 10 on 10: Lisa

Sunday's are always a bit tricky to take consistent pictures, but we gave it a shot. 

7:30 - trying to get everyone to eat breakfast at a rate that allows us to get to church on time. Easier said than done. 

8:30 was a blur without a picture as I was trying to finish getting everyone dressed in spite of a missing tights crisis. We did manage to make it to church in time to take the sacrament from our seat which counts as on time these days. 

11:00 - phew! Just finished my first lesson as a gospel doctrine teacher: Enos - Words of Mormon. 

12:30 - on our way home. We've been experimenting with different car seat configurations. Not sure we've found the sweet spot quite yet. 

1:30 - Crazy Hair Don't Care. Zachy had exceptionally fancy hair today. No amount of water and brushing could get rid of his front swoop. 

Jacob went home teaching and our home teachers came to visit this afternoon. Not sure where my phone was hiding but no pics. 

4:30 - Jacob didn't want me to take his picture but did agree to a selfie with me which is rare. A nice quiet moment before everyone woke up/dinner got underway, etc. 

5:30 - the kids ate chocolate pancakes and grown ups ate a yummy club sandwich. A small bag of bbq chips was enjoyed by all. 

6:00 - watching last week's America's Funniest Home Videos. We all look forward to it each week. Everyone is very engaged and we've had to discourage re-enacting the videos as we watch to avoid any emergency room visits. 

6:30?  Zachary snuck my phone and felt a leg selfie (a few in fact) was in order.

March 10 on 10: Stephanie

10am The kids requested an Easter egg hunt. There are two mini m&ms in each egg. 


Noon: special lunch of Mac and cheese


2pm: mail from cousins!

3pm: a walk in the best weather, 63 degrees and sunny

Picked Henry up from preschool, it was umbrella day

4pm: more fun mail! This time an Easter book from grandparents 

6pm: a plane

March 10 on 10: Lisa

It's March! Which means it's just about spring. Yay!

8:00 - Alyssa was ready for school early and was very proud of herself. Colin wasn't nearly so excited. 

9:00 - Spider-Man was ready for preschool. 

10:00 - Clancy decided to take a break from taking all the cushions off the couch. 

11:00 - worked on a couple of home improvement projects, but first had to charge the drill battery (actually first had to find the charger to charge the drill). It is an honest coincidence that Colin's tool box and toy drill is in the background. 

12:00 - a little lunch after preschool

1:30 - I had a friend stop by to drop some things off and while we were chatting Colin decided to brush his teeth and his shirt and the cabinets and inside the drawers. At least now the bathroom smells minty fresh. 

2:30 - my first unfortunate run in with our gas stove. This coupon somehow fluttered near the burner and quickly went up in flames. Thankfully the sink was close and nothing else caught fire. I guess I won't we getting our $.50 off Ovaltine after all. 

3:30 - taking care of business

4:30 - it rained ALL day. And I realized I left the lawn chair in the yard. Guess it will dry out eventually. 

We had Marco's pizza for dinner complements of me getting the school fundraiser date wrong. It's next Thursday btw. 

7:30 - The night also included a nasty backside blowout which required EXTENSIVE cleanup. So after a multitude of disinfecting wipes, running the carpet cleaner and fending off the need to dry heave, all the kids were in bed and I may have indulged in more than one and less than 10 thin mints. 

So it was a pretty typical day 😀


9:00 - Jacob had an event that made him late getting home - thankfully he brought me some very yummy chocolates.

10:00 - guess who we caught trying to sneak downstairs.

February 10 on 10: Lisa

6:50 - it was an early start this morning finishing up the last cleaning up from my Rodan + Fields business launch party. We're not exactly sure when Colin woke up, but it was even earlier. This is his new trend. Wake up, wander around downstairs and come wake us up when he gets bored. 

7:30 - figuring out where to start cleaning up the playroom. We had a playgroup/birthday party here today so it needed to be done by 10. 

8:00 - Clancy loves wearing shoes as long as they aren't his. 

8:15 - ready for school and helping me make bright red cupcakes before school. 

9:15 - making an effort to make Lego themed cupcakes. Red of course. 

9:45 - one of the many faces of Clancy's tantrums. He's embracing the terrible twos whole heartedly. 

10:15 - playgroup/birthday party begins!

10:45 - it's Feeding Tube Awareness week right now so thought I'd include some pictures of Clancy with his feeding backpack on.  Certainly doesn't hold him back one bit. 

11:00 - red chocolate Legos. Not too shabby for my first try. 

11:00 - decorating Lego masks. 

11:20 - enjoying the cupcakes. 

1:00 - we had to run some errands after the party. It snowed most of the day. While we were out we saw a herd of 6 dear cross in front of us. Everyone loved seeing them - Clancy kept shouting "puppy"!

2:00 - still snowing

3:30 - shredding chicken for the taco soup I made for the Young Women's activity tonight. 

This is what your hands look like after too much red food coloring. 

5:00 - still snowing

6:00 - my valentines with my valentines. I'm not sure why Alyssa's making a creepy face nor do I know where Colin's pants are. Pretty typical day.
