Then the guys went and ate from the BBQ cook off and I took Garret on a hayride. He loved it...at one point you go under a covered bridge and it is decorated to look like Santa's workshop. He thought that was pretty neat. We saw jugglers and more animals and called it a day. The kids were so tired they went to bed before six and slept until seven thirty this morning.
Some other random things- Spencer has learned to dance and it is so cute. He does a little head bob. If you sing Nephi's courage he starts shaking his arms around in the air. Tyler got his bike. He has been wanting a road bike and so he sold some left over dental supplies and he got it! He was so funny waiting for it to come. He would listen for the cars to go by and perk up every time (I guess it's good that he was excited because it's his Christmas present!)

I have been sick all week and sleep deprived and wishing I could use a sick day. I am anxiously looking forward to the weekend!
Some of The girls (one of the reasons I have been sleep deprived).
At the grocery store Tyler noticed someone forgot their groceries so he ran after them and returned them. The cashier turned to me and said "tell your daddy thanks for me". I looked at him funny and he said "tell your daddy thanks for returning groceries" (I think he thought my confused look was because I didn't know what I was thanking him for not because he had just called my husband my daddy).
Three strangers have asked me if my boys were twins...they are almost two years apart!

I went to book club last night for "the Brother's K". It was an interesting book (I am only 400 of 650 through it). It has made me think about a lot of different things (family, religion, redemption...). Book club was fun as usual I got home around 12:40 and went in to look at my boys. Spencer was laying in bed with his bum up in the air and he had no pants and no diaper on. They were thrown on the floor. I wish I would have taken a picture but I was more worried about getting him covered up then capturing the moment. He stayed asleep while I got him diapered and amazingly enough he had not even gone all those hours with no diaper!

SPENCER has decided he likes to give kisses, wrestle, scream and he too is infatuated with his blanket (he doesn't tickle his nose with it but wads it up and puts it by his face).
WE have participated in some fun and special events. (Baby blessings, time with friends and family, I got to go to a swanky baby shower that was tons of fun...).
I have learned even more that Tyler is my absolute favorite person to hang out with. Not because we are always out doing exciting things but because even the little things are fun together. We have been reading a book together and I love it. I could sit in his arms and listen to him read to me forever. I made him commit to reading to me all day long if I am ever bedridden.
GARRET has made me laugh. He was in his room separating his toys and when I went in to ask what he was doing he said "just getting the stuff I don't use to sell on Ebay". (Tyler sold stuff on Ebay to get his new bike).
I have been exhausted. I don't know if it is from lack of sleep or that fact that my kids not only play together more but fight more. Spencer knows how to scream and Garret knows how to make him scream and I am already tired of playing referee. (They really do play well most of the time but they get in evil moods and then things are out of control).
I have had this weird back ache that won't go away and I am so sick of it. It started in Toronto and when I bend in the wrong direction I have to stand up real quick because it hurts so bad...I just don't know what to do about it.
I have felt absolutely disorganized and out of my mind. I can't seem to get much done and yet I feel busy all the time. I go to the store and can't remember everything I was going to pick up....
TYLER has been obsessed with his triathlon goal. It's cute he is always reading about it, exercising or talking about it. I am excited for him....if only I were in better shape I could do it with him...
LIFE has been moving forward and we are enjoying it!

For example- at aldi's he very excitedly said "Look Mom those two match" (It was a man and a woman that looked nothing alike except that they were both very overweight). Then when he saw a woman in a shirt that was little more than a bra, he loudly said "Why doesn't she have to wear a shirt?" (the woman turned around) I said "She is wearing a shirt", he said "That's a bra".
He was a very entertaining little date! I am very excited to spend one on one time with my kids. Spencer had a great time with his Dad. They played Doctor and read stories and was rocked and sung too.

Then we drove around Chinatown and Little Italy. They were not too impressive but we went through them fast and may have missed the best part. We were so hungry by this point in the day that we wanted the perfect restaurant. We drove around looking for one (we had some serious trouble finding a good one), finally we settled on one and it was so disappointing. We talked about how gross it was forever...seriously sick. It was the worst end to a great day...next time we will pick better. I am so glad we went though, it was fun seeing it and just getting out!
