Smoothie Mustache!

Nana played on the slide with her grandkids. We loved it!

And, finally, several shots of Snuggle Puppy's hair, which we took simply because it needs to be cut:

Wiggles Makes Us Laugh

Wiggles found his train conductor hat and put it on. Snuggle Puppy (who is approaching 6' in height) asked, "Are you going to drive a train?" Wiggles replied "No, I can't drive a train until I'm 7. I mean, I can't drive a train until I'm 14."

The other day he (Wiggles) ran across the house yelling, "Ninja Turtle Asparagus!!!"

Yesterday we drove to Idaho Falls (and back) because we went to see the Idaho Falls Temple open house. I had tried to explain to the toddlers that they could go to the temple when they were older, if they chose to get a temple recommend, but because of the open house, they could go in to the Idaho Falls temple before it is rededicated. Later, when Tux Man told him it was time to go to the temple now, Wiggles cried out in delight, "Because I'm old?"

In a few months, we're taking a family trip by airplane. This morning, Wiggles came in and asked if he could see his ticket. I asked "What ticket?" and he replied "My ticket to ride a real hair plane."

Wiggles has loved the vacuum since he was born. Recently, with permission, he has started vacuuming the stairs by himself. (As you might imagine, I love this!)

I have been trying since last September to get him his own cello (1/16 size). A few weeks ago, I finally succeeded! We don't practice every day, but he really loves it. (And Strawberry loves to play as often as we let her, too.)

My Little Eyes

Sometimes, during family scripture study, the little ones "read" with us. We say a few words at a time, and they repeat them.

This morning, Strawberry made a few changes to the verse she read. This is how she said it:

"And after that me have obtained faith, and have seen them with my little eyes, you shall testify of them, by the power of God."

The original verse read like this:
"And after that you have obtained faith, and have seen them with your eyes, you shall testify of them, by the power of God."
(Doctrine & Covenants 17:3, talking about testifying of the truth of the Book of Mormon)

We have been told to "liken the scriptures unto us" (1 Nephi 19:23). We think Strawberry is doing great at applying the scriptures to herself!
