Move Over Chef Duff

Mikensee is in the house! Here is her very first cake! Thanks Grandma for the class! She LOVES it! She's already sick of frosting, but I assure you the lack of sugar won't harm her!

You are my Valentine

5 classes, 15 kids, 2 teachers = a WHOLE lot of Valentines. . . I refuse to spend money these days on things that are of no worth and therefore we made our own! (Sorry poor companies that make the ridiculously cheesy and expensive kids valentines!) We made a memory and too many book marks that I'm sure the kids in class were not as excited to receive as candy, but I knew there would already be plenty of that going around! I love you, my Valentines!

Responsible is a HUGE Word

This morning I spent some time in my room reading. . . Friday's the kids do not have school and although I was awake at my usual time I did not feel like getting up. I spent an extra hour feeling my sheets and snuggling with Wyatt who crawled into bed in the wee hours of morning. I was catching up on my Ensign and reading my Sunday School and Relief Society lessons for the coming week when Jessica wanted to make breakfast at about 7:30. I told her that was fine if she could act responsibly. Those of you who know Jessica well know that responsibility doesn't come easily. Still I wasn't prepared for what I found at 8:30! I asked her if she thought the mess I found was responsible. . . her reply "Mom, responsible is a huge word."

I didn't think to catch a photo of the before, but this is the after. . . Seeing as they have a mop bucket out I'm sure you can use your imagination. Fortunately for me they had a good attitude even though I probably wasn't as nice as I should have been about the mess in the first place. . . Note to self; don't let Jessica make breakfast alone again for a long, long time. . .appreciate the fact that they did actually try to clean up the mess and had some fun while doing it!
