Jelly Belly

No, one of my New Year's Resolutions was NOT to blog less. It's just been kind of crazy around here, and I simply haven't had time. (I know, a pretty blasphemous thing to say.)

So my boys all got balloons from their Grandma, and one night while I was making dinner they decided to play "Fat Tummy". That's what they called it, anyway. It pretty much consists of them putting the balloon in their shirts and running into each other. Huh, it's kind of like Sumo Wrestling.

I've actually been working on a project, and I'm thisclose to finishing it, but I wanted to have it actually done before blogging about it.

My boys would yell "FAT TUMMY!!" before running into each other. After impact, they'd explode into a fit of giggles.

Yesterday for Troy's preschool, we took the kids to Craigo's. The pizza guy showed them how they make the dough, and they each got to pick toppings for their own pizza. The guy also made a big pizza for the moms there, and also brought out a dessert pizza and drinks. All for free. It's one of the best field trips I've been on, ever! SO yummy.

Oh, and did I mention...


(I love this action shot-Troy's face running right into Jake's balloon.)

And yesterday, just because Pete loves me, he got me a dozen roses. He asked for a dozen red, but the lady said they didn't have a dozen red ones, so he did half red and half lilac-colored. (I personally think she's lying; I think they're keeping all the red ones for V-day coming up. But I really like the mixture, probably even more so than all red.) How stinking sweet is that? I don't know if I've ever gotten flowers, just because.


I taught a lesson on Sunday in Young Women's. I was so worried about it, but I think it turned out really well. I've also been reading (slowly but surely) Jesus the Christ by James E. Talmage. I've been loving it! And-


I just-


(I promise, I'll blog about my project soon.)
(Fat tummy.)

your boys are too cute. john wrote a bedtime story for our boys called "fat tummy man." he put it on a cd for them to listen to while they go to sleep. fat tummy man accidently fights bad guys with his fat tummy. your photos are perfect for it. :)

Well as someone who married into a florist family, I don't really know, but I am pretty sure they really didn't have enough red ones because they wouldn't be able to save flowers for a whole month and all flowers around here are pretty much brought in from other places this time of year. I like the lilac ones in there anyway personally.

I love all of the pictures of your boys playing with balloons, very fun!

That's so funny! I love those pictures. And that's totally cool about getting everything free at craigo's. I haven't been there since college, about 8 years ago... WOW! That's a long time!! LOL I can't wait to see your project!!:)

Aprillium said...

yay for free stuff! Love that the kids were having so much fun, I love it when mine get along that well.

Oh... and BTW they can't save roses that long... though I'm sure if they could they would be stoked... V Day totally sucks being a florist for... so glad that I don't have to do that anymore!

Wow, it really has been a long time since you blogged. I just realized that. What a cute little game they made up. Our made-up games were the best growing up. And Patty wants a copy of your lesson. For reals. I'll e-mail you her e-mail address.
