Jeff finally went into the dentist to get some work done. One of his teeth just had to be pulled. The dentist said it was the longest roots he has ever seen. So Jeff brought it home to show the boys. Jakob told Jeff to put it under his pillow to get money. The next morning Jeff told Jakob that the tooth fairy gave him 100.00 for his tooth.
A couple days latter...
We were in the car and Logan was talking about how he is going to save his money to buy a DS. Jakob then said he was going to save his bday money to buy a DS too. I told him his birthday was not even close and then he said, "I wish dad would die". Worried about the statement I asked him why. He said if Jeff died, then he could have the 100.00 that the tooth fairy left him. HA!
Then here comes Logan...
"Jakob, if Dad dies, then mom would have to go back to work. She would have to work a lot longer to make the kind of money dad does (thanks for the dig my son). So we would have to go to daycare and they would feed us dinner. And they don't care about us like mom does, so they would feed us ONIONS!"
Jakob took back his wish. Jeff will not die. He will keep his 100.00 (like that money didn't already go to bills) and I can stay home and cook food without onions. All is well with the world!

Logan had a blast. I was able to be with him 3 out of the 4 days. Logan and the bottle rockets
We loved having them over, I wish I would have taken more pictures. But here is it!

Today (wed) the fire dept came and showed them all the compartments on their truck and what everything was used for. Then they turned the hose on the boys and drenched them. They were soaking wet! And of course our boys were the last to do the class, so my seat were totally wet. But they had a blast. Jakob was able to come the last 1/2 of the day while Jeff took Kellsie to her dr. apt.
They shot BB guns and bow and arrows. Logan got a bulls eye. So proud! They also learned how to play marbles, learned about crime prevention and how to play sock baseball.

Ever since that movie I will randomly hear my kids start screaming and running away from whom ever has the current cheese touch. Mostly Jakob gets it because he is slower than the older kids.
So today we were waiting for church to start. I hear the kids moving around and turn to see what is going on...that is right, Jakob gets tagged and now has the cheese touch! He is really upset and sad (because I guess he believes it???). To stop the drama, I ask Jakob to take our tithing envelope up to the stage where the Bishop is sitting. He does and while he is up there, he shakes the Bishop's hand...that's right...Bishop now has the cheese touch. Jakob turned around with a big smile on his face. I wonder who has the cheese touch now?

That's it! You are grounded from reading!
I totally love my kids and I am having a blast with them being home. But we have to get this reading thing under control!
The kids love to go on the computer at the library and put books on hold. TONS OF BOOKS ON HOLD! They read them all ,but it is getting out of control! On wed we picked up 10 books that Kellsie put on hold. Of course she already read one of them and returned it today (it was a big book too. I wish I could read that fast). She is reading three books right now and then she is going to start on the other 6. One of them is even a book about Princess'. My friend Kristi said she would like it, so she put that on hold too.
Jakob and Logan now want to put star wars books on hold all the time. There are star wars books at our library, but they would rather have the titles that are at another branch. At least they are reading, right???
In fact the kids go up to their rooms at 8:30pm but can stay up to 9pm to read. In fact I give them extra time for reading for treats if Jeff is working that night. Whatever works!

He says all of the muscles Kellsie's needs to walk correctly are there. He needs her to build up the muscles she is not using and stop using the ones she is overly using (making sense? I think you would have to be there). He says he thinks that her feet might have been in the process of being club feet, but didn't get there. GREAT NEWS FOR US!
My hopes are up! I am excited for Kellsie to be able to walk without trouble or pain. I am grateful that we didn't do surgery like the other dr's wanted. I didn't feel right about that at all. We will keep working and praying. Kellsie deserves the best in this world!
After the last funeral the kids were asking me why the funerals were different. One was cremated/ one was not. One had a family lunch/ one feed everyone. and the list went on. We then talked about how everyone wants different things for their funeral. Some people make a will and put all their wants on the paper for their family. Some don't put anything on paper and let their family chose ( I left out the part that the people who don't have wills, totally screw their family and leave them to pay for the funeral. ). Then my kids asked me what I wanted at my funeral...
I told them I did not want them spending money. Just the basics. cheapest box. No flowers. Just pictures of me and my family. No viewing. and a BIG lunch after for my family and friends.
Logan said he and Jakob would build my box out of wood, because they are so good at wood working (three trips to Home depot making wood crafts and now they want to build a casket?). I said that was great, but I wanted Kellsie to paint it Pink and write " Hot Momma' on the side. She said she will and I totally love it!
Then Logan said because he is so amazing at wood working that he is going to make a big wood "thing" and carve a picture of uncle David chasing me with a snake (ah the good old days. David chasing me with a snake...a hammer...whatever!). I love the idea.
Then I asked who would be making the lunch for everyone to eat. Logan said they would be too busy with the other stuff, so he said the NFL team that he is playing on would do all the cooking and serving. I think that just about covers it (hope he is playing for the Chargers).
Then Jakob spoke up (so quiet in the back of the car). "If you die, who will drive us home?" Poor kid thought we were talking about me passing away right then! Wait....he wasn't worried about me being gone? Just about how he was going to get home? Thanks Jake!
WHATEVER! I have my pink box. I am totally happy!
