Ginnie: "The fost path is.....DW!"  As she looks at her little brochure, wearing a toilet seat cover bright maroon on her head."And it's.....Hywum!" Stretching out her arm toward him. Hyrum:  "Do I get to speak up?" "Ya." "Okay, get out of my way." "No, Hywum! (firmly)"
Hyrum starts singing, "We wish you a merry Christmas, we wish you a Merry Christmas..." is this a singing show?  No, this is a speak up show! Speak up, Ginnie, speak up!"

I Rejoice!

There's a song that I love by an LDS woman called 'I Rejoice!' It portrays Eve's feelings about the fall.  I love the melody.  But here are the words: "I used to walk with God. I used to sing with angels. My feet were bear in the sweet tender grass, I was sure of a world I knew well..." I'd never been afraid.  No harm had ever touched me.   Then I put out my hand, and at once, there was darkness where light used to be. Chorus:  All need until, it was as if the wind stood still.  Holding a breath, as we walked the path way, from life to death.  Tears running down,  and I know the pain of my choice. 
But not for those tears, with my eyes now clear, I rejoice!"
Our children we will hold.  Though with our joy, our sorrow.   No longer will the earth care for us, now we'll make it a home on our own... (can't remember rest of this verse)

It goes into detail about the process of repentance and the absolute need for the Atonement of Jesus Christ.  It is complete…

Easter Dresses














The kids went to a museum where they had a kid sized Kroger grocery store and other things like dress-up clothes.  They seemed to enjoy themselves although we were all sick the entire time we were there, we still had lots of fun. Hyrum, busy filling his cart Time to check out

Routine

In case anyone's interested (which I highly doubt), here is our daily routine...the few things that we do consistently every day and week.Hyrum is usually up with the sun, around 6:30 and is in watching a movie of his choice when I get around to waking up with the girls around 7:30 or eight. We usually lounge just a little while Hyrum finishes his movie (I'm determined to change this part into jumping on our miniature trampoline again daily).  Then we go into the kitchen for some breakfast. 9-10:00 Next, it's chore time.  I normally have them fold and put away a load of laundry and clean up two rooms (living room usually included), then go in and make their beds/straighten rooms. 10:00-11:30 Then, they get to color and build blocks, or whatever suits their fancy while I try to get the rest of the house cleaned up, as well as putting Angela down for her morning nap at 10:30 Lunch 11:45-12:00 12:00-2:00 Quiet Time After lunch, we have quiet time where I read on average five to sev…
