Jack in the Bouncer

Instead of "Jack in the Box" it is "Jack in the Bouncer" house. He no more gets in it and he comes back out! It's all part of the fun.

Half the fun of the bouncer house is watching it go up with air and go down. By the way, Ang made Jack and Brooke's little shirts. I caught them standing on the bouncer when it was deflating (which is a no no) so I took a picture. Jack was smiling because he didn't get into trouble, but Brookes little face is showing she knows it was a no no and was waiting for me to say it!

All the cousins like to play Super Mario Brothers WII game. By their faces it looks a little painful.
I really don't think they know what they are doing, I know I don't. Don't ya love all the mic's and stuff for Rock Band (it takes up alot of room). Brooke thinks she was playing too.
This is what the other "kids" were playing with. I love this picture of Lilly and John.

Daredevil Girl

We have a little climber! We were changing a light bulb and Brooke decided she had to climb the ladder and did a little trick for us! Don't worry Ang I am standing right next to her and dad took the picture. While Jack and Brooke were staying with us I should have lost 50 pounds chasing her up and down the stairs! She is very fast and we spent alot of time on these stairs. I just thought I should have brought out the vac and cleaned the stairs (they would have been very clean).
I found out she likes to put things on her head.
This is another danger stunt Brooke does. She loves to get on this little hand chair and look out the window in the study. She forgets she is on a chair, turns and falls off. I am happy to report that I returned her to her parents all in one piece and without any marks!

Choo Choo the Big Train

While waiting for the train, we took a picture of the Grandchildren. It is hard to get all the kids looking, smiling, holding still and keeping babies from falling off the bench (yes, we did have one fall off the bench, but I can't talk about it)! And then I push the "take the red eye out" button and get white eye marks on some of the kids! Well at least all the kids are in the picture! Smile...
Pure joy... Choo choo the big train is coming down the track, Stop-Look-and-Listen, Stop-Look-and-Listen. Choo choo the big train is coming down the track (we sing this in Nursery class).
I just want you to know that I just had a camera miracle happen! I lost these train pictures last time I up-dated my blog and have been very upset about losing them. I just plugged my camera into the computer to save some pictures to picasa and wow the file came up! I had even checked my camera to see if they were on it and it said it was empty. And... just now when I took my memory stick out of the computer the train file disappeared! Luckily I put the trains in another file! It is my February miracle and I hope I keep getting a miracle each month this year!
Brooke got to ride with Tom and Angie and loved to hang out the windows like a little puppy dog! The train makes the cutest train sounds.
This train drives all through the mall and I wonder if anyone has been run over by it!

Playtime at Grandma's

Jack likes to stack things and is very good at it! He thinks the way you play checkers is by stacking them and is not interested in playing it the real way.
Brooke likes to climb, point and squeal! We are having fun times at grandma's house.

Ice Skating

Joshua gave a report at school about Ice Skating and he brought his report to our house on Sunday and gave us his presentation, it was great! He didn't have one written note because he knows alot about ice skating because he is taking some skating lessons.
Notice the white ice skates by the fireplace, well they are mine and we even have a pair of black skates that where great grandpa Wheatley's. Funny how the white skates are the same as in the picture that Joshua is holding. You would think they would make some kind of up-grade to skates after 40 something years. They look brand new because I don't like to skate. We had to skate on the big lake (okay it is a pond but it felt like a lake) in Brigham City. Something about being on a frozen, deep-water pond that I didn't like since I am afraid of water!
Josh gave all the kids a pair of skates to use at their homes just like the girls are demonstrating. These skates are also good to clean your floors. Great job Joshua!

Happy Valentines Day

We had a "Super" Valentines Day party! The kids flew around with their super power capes on and gathered up all the hearts that were taped all over the house. By the way, Ang made the cute super power capes. We ate lots of red foods like baked spaghetti, red jello (of course), pomegranate lettuce salad etc. and we ate too many desserts! Sugar cookies, chocolate cake, raspberry mousse, raspberry sherbet, chocolates, black licorice etc. (about 10 lbs. worth).
We played "pin the heart on the heart" game and ...
got some fun Valentine treats. We love all our little Valentines!

I've been playing with dolls. I took a little break from cleaning out the closets. I got these 5 cuties for Christmas.
They come with their own case/play house.
I'm not sure which one is my favorite. Oh, by they way, they are perfume dolls! I can play with them and smell nice too! I now just need to get some of Ang's chinese doll material and make me some jamie pants to wear while I play with them.
Thanks Katherine and Abby for the fun!

Happy Birthday Angela

Ang came down for the weekend and we had a Birthday Party!! Sorry Ang that the pictures aren't the best. We had the famous "Byram Burgers", pasta salad & lemon squares which are some of Ang's favorites. Alan made a birthday poster and the little kids were excited about the balloons, running and chasing one another and screaming! Our house is pretty dead today.
Happy Birthday Angela!! We love you, have a great Birthday today.

Katherine's Secret Life

I found this article while cleaning out the closet and I now know where Katherine has been spending all her time!
Like she said she was going to college, Japan, Italy and Kentucky, but really has been moonlighting as some ambassador's daughter!
Or maybe Katherine and this Blythe are really twins and were separated at birth and Katherine was given to me by mistake at Alta View Hospital!
Or maybe she is spy and has been acting as this couples daughter!
Or maybe instead of being a "hand model" she is a "face model" and is just making this couple look good so we think they have a child!
Or Katherine has just found her "look-a-like twin"!
