We had a nice relaxing weekend. We have been anxious to get outside and do some work, but it RAINED all weekend, so we were stuck inside. Saturday Jacob and I went to this great indoor garage sale. They only sold maternity/kids stuff. (K, sorry I didn't call you, we had so many errands to run afterwards. But I wish I did, you would have loved it!) There was soooo much stuff, all at garage sale prices. I was in heaven. If I didn't have Jacob with me i'm sure I would have stayed longer and bought more. It's probably a good thing he was there. I found some cute dresses for Claire, and some shirts and Jeans for the boys.

Jacob LOVED this hawaiian shirt. He really wanted it and I figured for $2, why not?
Sunday we enjoyed General conference. As much as you can enjoy it with four kids. It's really hard to concentrate and listen with kids. We watched the first session and then recorded the second so that Brent and I can watch it and really listen. We are going to listen to a talk a night. That evening we decided to make these cute cupcakes that I found in a magazine. They are little monkeys. The kids had a great time making them. We made a batch and then delivered some to friends so that we wouldn't end up eating them all ourselves...which I'm sure I would have.
Notice the pen on Cole's face...For some reason he asked Jacob to draw on him. I think he wanted to look like batman or something?



Malia making her pirate face. So it was a nice relaxing weekend. We are hoping for some sunshine next weekend. We are building a playarea for the kids in the backyard...it will be a lot of work, but we are excited to get it done!

Thanks for forgetting about me. It's okay we also tried to watch conference. We were distracted my kids and sleep. After tackling the mountain of laundry I am not in the mood to buy more clothes. Super cute cupcakes.
