TOO BUSY TO BLOG???!!!!???

Yes, that's right. I guess there comes a point when you have to choose between 2 good things. I love to blog, especially for my family to see how the kids are growing. I think it is a great way to keep up on what our family is doing. However, I just don't always have time to upload pictures and write a paragraph about everything I have done that week. We are lucky in most cases just to get our tasks done for the week let alone write about it. Anyway, so off my soap box, and on to my post.

I have taken on 23 piano students this fall. I thought this would be difficult, but I have to admit, rather than the 12 hours a week it takes to teach, it hasn't been difficult at all!!! I LOVE IT!!! I love my students, I love watching them get better as they practice and I love teaching them!
I have also taken on directing 2 children's choirs with my friend. I am so grateful that she thought of me to help her. It has been a great blessing for me to be able to develop some of my talents more fully, and I love the fun music it has brought into our home. My girls will not quit singing and playing the piano, but I couldn't ask for anything better.

In our spare time, 3 of the girls take gymnastics lessons on Monday after school. I am the 1st counselor in the primary, Spencer is the Y/M president. He just is just finishing potato harvest. . .yay!!! Not to mention, homework, baths, dinner, laundry, housework, and just keeping up.

My latest project during harvest break was to paint the girls' bedrooms. Anna informed me that other girls got to have "cute paint" and let me know that brown was SOOOOO BORING. So, Here is what we came up with...
Abby and Lyndsie's Room

Anna and Vivian's Room

The girls had a fun time painting poka dots (BOLD, I KNOW) And I have to admit that I like the way they turned out. . . thanks for the little push Anna!!!

Hair, Hair Hair

Anna has been asking for a shorter haircut for a while. As we were walking out the door for the appointment, Lyndsie was quite sure she needed hers done as well. Thanks a ton to Merri who spent 2 hours cutting hair for me and my girls this afternoon. The girls love their new haircuts!!
They are actually cuter in person!

Last night the Snake River Kids Choir held their spring show. I have been helping this year, and it really has been alot of fun. I didn't get any pics of them on stage since I was up front helping. Thanks to Kara for asking me to help and to the other directors for accepting me so willingly!!!

This is Abby who had the part of Tricia (who was a tourist)

This is Lyndsie who had the part of Dawn (who was a cowgirl)

This is Anna who had the part of Beth (who was a city slicker)

Here is the whole cute little cast.

Happy Birthday Vivian!!!

My Baby is 2!!! We officially celebrated her birthday tonight. She was 2 on Friday, but we planned her birthday party around potato planting season.

She was so funny tonight. Every time she would open a present she would say "TA-DA". She was so excited for "present time." We are so glad we have both families so close and our friends Jim and Jan to spend birthdays with!

Marilyn was such a sweetie to make Vivers a birthday cake. Vivian immediatly recognized it as "THE MOUSE!" Thanks for taking the time Mares. . . we love you!!!
