Our appliances have all entered into a suicide compact. First the dryer went out. After a couple weeks of tinkering and waiting, we got the part and Michael was able to fix it himself. Then a week later the washer stopped working. Three days later I woke up to a warm refrigerator and wet, leaking freezer. Then later that day, Zoe decided to see what happens when you cook a rice bag in the microwave for 99 minutes. Turns out, it is pretty spectacular.
Pretty sure Michael has developed a rational fear of unexpected middle-of-the-day phone calls from home.
So now we have a new washer! A newly repaired dryer! A new microwave on top of the fridge where little hands can't reach! And for some reason the fridge started working again -- we don't know why but we're just gonna roll with it for now.
Even though they are tiny toddlers, these two are best friend cousins. Zane and Hallie play together so sweetly, considering they are both busy busy busy babes who don't like to share. We often find them hugging and kissing and snuggling up together.
Two matching boys. I had the hardest time going in to roust them for dinner.
They were so quiet and peaceful and happy together. Isn't it fantastic how you can make yourself a little best friend? Jed is so much like his daddy. Makes my heart glad.
Speaking of hungry, today we sat quietly during the beginning of sacrament meeting. The kids were quiet and well behaved. The Priesthood boys got up and as they said the prayer, Zane perked right up. When the bread was uncovered, Zane started bouncing up and down in my lap. “Mmmmmmm!!!” he happily growled in my lap. With eager abandoned he loudly smacked his lips four or five times. “MmmmmMMMMM! Mmm! Mmm! *Smack!* *Smack!*” This boy was ready for snacktime! A big eager smile cracked his face as he bounced on the pew. “MMMMMMM!!! YUMMMMMMM!!! *SMACK!* *SMACK!* *SMACK!*” Giggling madly, I finally shoved a piece of bread in his mouth. He moaned happily “Mmmmm!” Yum! Sacrament!
