While mom's away...

the dad lets the kids break their arms.

Well, I guess only one kid broke his arm, but still.

I was off on my annual cookie weekend in St. George when this happened. I'm so glad that I have an amazing aunt that could step in and take care of the kids so Adam could sit at the hospital for 5 hours with Mason. Good times. Thanks Joan!
As for cookie weekend, I get together with some friends right before Christmas and do a fun weekend where we swap cookies that we bake. We make 7 dozen of whatever kind we pick, and come home with 7 dozen of a delicious variety. We shop and watch movies and eat-out and sleep-in, all the good things that you can't do with little kids at home. I forgot my camera, as usual. My sister had hers so I was so excited to get some pictures from her, but instead I got an African virus. Thanks Stef! So this is all you get, the sorting of the cookies...

Oh my goodness!!

I did it! I have finished this crazy semester of school. I took my last final this morning and I am just so happy to be done. I know school will be even crazier once I am actually in the program, but I'll worry about that when I get there. I have absolutely no desire to catch you up on the last few months of my life because there was nothing that went on besides school, my house falling apart, my children getting behind, my husband getting lost in the laundry, you know, those sorts of things. I don't want to dwell on the fact that if I'm trying to be a good student, I can't do anything else. I'm working on that though, so hopefully next semester won't be as bad.

I have been dying to get these family photos up since we took them, back in the fall, so here they are! Thanks to Tonja for being such a great friend and taking them for us.
I totally sucked at this one, but Adam looks awesome. My favorite part was where he dropped carson at the end of this one...I can't believe we got one of this kid smiling! This one is the most amazing of the bunch, because you see this rare smile. We actually got a few. Yay!
Hopefully you will see more of me from now on. Well, maybe not me, but more of my family/life.
And for good measure...
