When she keeps me up til 3 am, I have to think of new things for her to play with in between holding her and rocking her. (and that's not easy on so little sleep!)

Trying new hairstyles on Liberty... poor Emilie's gone these 13 years without me doing much with her hair... I guess I figured with THREE girls I needed to get it together. Though Emilie looks worried when I say I'll do her hair.

I managed to scratch and dent our 'new' car. The older kids should thank me for doing it before they did.... Tom will forgive me. Eventually. The funny thing is, I hit the mailbox... and the mailbox doesn't have a mark on it. I think the door may have popped open.

Timothy and Christopher reading together. We're using "Learning to Read Using the Book of Mormon" and I was only going to be working with Timothy but Christopher joined right in... I love this one of Timothy helping his little brother.

Yes, that is her new squishy AT-AT from Star Wars.

"I shall call him Squishy and he shall be mine and he shall be my Squishy."

And yes, she's sticking out her tongue.

These are available from Amazon and, from my own searches after seeing them in a baby magazine and ALL her siblings deciding that Jules wanted to spend her birthday money on one.

I attempted to make a space for most of our scriptures. It gets messed up quickly because we use them at least twice a day... but it was nice to see this shelf cleaned up.

My beautiful girls in their new headbands. The flowers come off and are interchangeable with other flowers that can be buttoned or clipped on.

My sister (inlaw) Gretchen made them, and she sells them on etsy. They are so cute! I will post the link in a bit.
