bedtime stories

Last week when I was away for Pack Night, Dave put the kids to bed and told them part I of this 'awesome' story! They have been BEGGING for him to finish the story every night since. Because Dave flew out to Florida last week (just to be picked up at the airport by his dad) and drove back to Arizona together -- along with my in-law's two big dogs -- and church meetings, etc, Dave is finally finishing the 'story' tonight.

I was wondering what story was so incredible that me kids were just on pins and needles waiting for it to finish. I just walked past him telling them the rest of the story... here is what I heard,

"So, Josh told the professor, "Before I came back to the 1950's, you told me I needed 1.21 gigahertz of power to get back." "1.21 Gigahertz! That only comes from plutonium -- and you can't get that in the 1950's, unless you know when lightening will strike!"

I was laughing so hard -- nice imagination there, Dave! I guess I know what movie we will be adding to our netflix queue! :)

That reminds me of this guy I knew in college who was really handy with cars. He was quite popular with the girls in his ward when they needed car help. If he thought he was being 'used' or if he thought he could get away with it, he would send the girls to the auto parts store with a list of things they needed to buy and would put on the list, "One flex capacitor"! Ha!

Josh's first lost tooth & Mother's Day

Josh had a loose tooth for several weeks before he decided to take matters into his own hands -- literally. I'll let him tell you in his own words.

In other news, I had a great Mother's day -- starting out with Teya sneaking into bed with me at 3 a.m. and throwing up! (on the carpet, not in bed, FORTUNATELY), giving her a bath, etc.... but it got better from then on out -- breakfast in bed, chocolate bars at church, a guest (John the Baptist) for sharing time (meaning I didn't have to be up there), a nap after church, making lemon bars, fruit dip, and strawberry tarts with my kids after my nap, dinner at John & Bev's house with my parents and family, and it ended with a wonderful book group at my house!

My parents came over and we 'discussed' The Fire of Faith that my dad wrote about their mission President experiences in Tonga. We had a great turnout and I think everyone enjoyed the evening. I know I did! I do enjoy listening to my dad's stories -- even though I'd heard most of them, there are always a few new ones to hear. So, thanks Mom and Dad for coming!

Here are a few funny Mother's day cards that I thought I'd share:

Front: Mom -- It's your day! So, forget the laundry, forget the cleaning, forget the cooking...
Inside: In other words... pretend you are Dad!

Front: Happy Mother's Day! 24 hours of appreciation, consideration, gifts, relaxation...
Inside: Surrounded by 364 days of reality!

Happy Mother's Day to all of you out there -- it is the silent, daily, simple things that matter -- so your work IS important!

Teya takes on the tunes

Here is our Sunbeam, fresh from a spaghetti dinner singing her favorite Primary song:

So sweet, despite the messy face! I love this girl!
