Ashton has been OBSESSED with Lego's and building things these days. He likes Lincoln logs and train tracks as well. I love it!! He keeps entertained for so long and then loves to show me his completed projects. He is getting quite talented- I told Matt that I think he will be an engineer- but we will see. The otter day I asked him where he learned to build so good. He said "from Bob the Builder." Of course, I should have known.
Ashton enjoyed watching Jungle Book for a few days and would always be singing this song. He especially likes to sing it to his Nana on the phone and to me and Tera as we are driving in the car. It never fails to make me laugh. He gets very into character- he really tries to imitate voices and even bounces his head around. He is a silly boy!

“How much more beautiful would be our world and our society if every mother regarded her children as the jewels of her life, as the gifts from the God of Heaven” President Hinckley
I know that I am not always the most patient mother, and that I sometimes let days slip by without playing with my kids enough- I do treasure my children and acknowledge that they are a gift from my Heavenly Father. I am grateful that He has trusted Matt and I with these special spirits. When I look into the faces of my beautiful children, I know that my Heavenly Father loves me.
Charming and witty. You are always the first person to come up with a wisecrack. Sure, you have an attitude, but that's why people love you. You keep them on their toes. Sometimes you can be misleading, but always end up doing the right thing for the people you love.

* Flaky friends-
*Picture being put in boxes not in albums or frames
* Garages not being used for what they're made- cars
* Girls pretending to be ditsy
* Seeing thongs hanging out of pants
* Cheap people- not thrifty, just downright cheap
* Moody boys (moody girls are bad enough)
* People who think their kids are perfect
* Not being able to talk to an operator on the phone- ever
* People who litter or don't put their shopping carts away- lazy!
Whopper Jrs Pink Grapefruit candy
I am not a huge burger fan on a normal day, but for some reason, with this pregancy I love burgers. Lately I am enjoying Whopper Jrs. For only a dollar you get a wondefully healthy meal!! I am also really enjoying pink grapefruit candy (the gummy kind) I recently bought a bag from Toms Farms candy shoppe- soo tasty! Iknow- I am so healthy- I love when peole say "oh, you teach aerobics- you are probably really healthy! Ha!! That’s why I work out, so I don't have to eat rice cakes and veggie burgers- I love the good fatty stuff!
Tera wakes up yelling "I done sleeping."
Ashton asks to go to a friends house. When I tell him we can't because I am too sick. "Its okay- just bring a bowl to throw up in." What a sensitive kid.
Getting ready for the fireworks (Tera fell asleep before they started)

Ashton is quite the story teller. The other day we found two big bumps on his leg. I was concerned that they were spider bites, but he said "Mom, I am pretty sure they are scorpion bites or somethin' " I told him that a scorpion bite would kill him, so he made up an elaborate story about why he is still alive today.
It went something like this-
" After the scorpion bit me, the engine spider came by and sucked out the poison from me. Engine spiders are this big (he holds up his hands about 2 feet apart) They are blue and white. They save peoples lives."
I tried to get him to tell the story for the camera, but he was a little embarrassed (perhaps because it was all a big lie) but I caught a glimpse of it.
I decided to take Ashton in to get his hair cut. Matt usually does this because it is just a simple buzz. However, Matt was gone and I decided it would be easier to pay the 10.00 and get it done. When I was there I decided I might as well get Teras hair cut- for the first time. She got some bangs and a trim. Matt was furious when I told him over the phone. He wanted to be there for her first hair cut, I forgot to save a clip of her hair, and he HATES bangs. In fact, once I told him I wanted to get bangs and he said "only if they are down to your chin." I told him at that point, it was considered a layer. But, I did get bangs and I did hate them. So, he was right. I think I finally consoled Matt when I drove back to Great Clips to dig some of Teras hair out of the trash can. It was mixed in with some old mans dark hair, but oh well, the sentiment is there right (mixed in with the nasty hair?) I love her bangs. I think she looks adorable, but Matt refers to her as butch. (She doesn't seem to get that this is not a compliment so it is not too cruel) I am aware that this post is making Matt seem very opinionated and guess what he is! We both are.
