I need to update what happened in the past month since I have been a terrible blogger. So, I wanted to give some highlights...

Brevin is soooo into spelling lately. Actually it's ridiculous how much spelling has consumed our lives. Anway, Brevin is constantly sounding things out and then saying for example, "Mom, what does S-T-O-P spell?" So I always come back with "Well, sound it out." And then we figure it out together. So the other day Grandma Mary Ann and Lindsey were here and we were all in the kitchen, and Brevin was writing letters and said, "Mom, what does B-O-O-B spell." what do I say to this? We don't use the word boob here very often (we call them "ta tas" just in case you were wondering). So I say frankly, "That spells boob, bud." Oh boy, you should have seen the look on his face. His eyes got big and he put his head straight down with his hands over his eyes. My mom, Lindsey and I couldn't contain ourselves. We just busted up-so funny.

The latest argument we have been having every day is over the prayer. Both boys want to do it every single time. So my mistake was teaching them..."bubble gum, bubble gum, in a dish" know how it goes. Well now Kesler insists on doing "bubble gum" himself and conveniently lands on whomever he thinks deserves to win. Oh, and no matter how many pieces you wish...he always does 4. We should be getting plenty of blessings these days, though, because we have two prayers and nearly all of our meals :)

Last week when Brevin woke up he came to find me with a smile on his face. (very abnormal for Brevin to wake up with a smile) He said, "Mom, I had a dream I was getting in the tub last night and I woke up and I had taken off my clothes!" I laughed and went in to make his bed. I lifted up a pillow and found underwear under it. I said, "Brevin, where did these come from?" and he said, " I couldn't find them when I tried to get dressed after my dream." Hilarious.

Bryson pulled his hamstring playing basketball a couple of weeks ago, but it healed pretty quickly...or so he thought. Last Wednesday he played church ball and hurt it again, but this time when he woke up he couldn't even walk. He got dressed and left for work, but not even and hour later I heard the garage opening. He said he couldn't even push the gas pedal it hurt so bad. So he stayed home from work and we called a friend of ours who is a physical therapist. He said there's nothing much we can do, but told us to wrap it up tight, and take some medicine. The next morning it looked like this...

No that is not a toothpick. It really is Bryson's leg.

We had a really fun weekend this weekend. My mom turned 60! So we planned a fun weekend for her. Tons of surprises, which she fell for hook, line, and sinker. It was fun to see her so happy, and to spend time with family. I was sad this morning when I realized that I hadn't taken one picture, though.

Sunday was also special. Brady asked Bryson to come to Malad to ordain him in the priesthood. I was so happy that Brady asked Bryson to, and I am so proud that my husband is worthy to do so.

My new addiction. and I have far too many, is Bryson keeps asking me how much longer I am going to be on the computer, and I keep saying five more minutes. I should be working on vinyl or pictures or a million young women things, but no, I'm looking to see what celebrities Bryson and I look like. I know, how ridiculous, but check it really is addicting.

It's always interesting to hear who people think your children look like. I have always thought that Brevin favored the Daniels side, and Kesler looked more like Bryson. But more often than not people agree that both boys look like me even though they look different. Some people who just glance at the blonde hair and blue eyes tend to say they look like Bryson. As I was putting our pictures into the "look-alike" meter I realized that each of us looks different if you ask me. Brevin has always been told that he is "a good mix" and apparantly that is true of both Brevin and Kesler because the meter didn't weight heavily either way.

I'm curious what all of you think...who do my kids look like?

Camo Kesler

Wow, Kesler is definitely reaching that hard age. He thinks that he needs everything that his brother has. He has started changing his clothes incessantly (mostly changing from regular clothes to basketball gear...I can actually hear him upstairs right now and I'm willing to bet he's coming down with "shorts & T-shirt.") His whine now echoes through the house 90% of the day. But man he is cute...thank heavens!

Because we do something associated with basketball every single night, Kesler loves to "go game." The past few times at Bryson's city league games he yells, "Defense black!" and "Let's go black!" But the funniest is when Bryson shoots a free throw he yells over and over "Daaaaad, make your fee fows!" And he continues yelling this until Bryson's done. Some girl said to me the other night..."Wow, your kids really are into this!"

I really need to video them here playing basketball. I was banned from playing because Brevin said I was too rough! I'll admit. I like to plat some pretty fierce defense on their daddy :) We went to watch one of my young women play the other night at Highland and Brevin said, "See mom, that's how your SUPPOSED to play defense!"

Oh, and just for the record. Kesler is sitting on my lap in his pajamas with his eyes barely open, but don't worry he has a pair of shorts and a T-shirt in his hands!

Holy Snow!

We went to Malad last Friday for Breelle's birthday, and we woke up the next morning to SNOW!! So much snow that they actually cancelled church. We had so much fun finally building a snowman. Brevin has been begging every day to PLEASE build a snowman. I have felt like a bad mom every day responding with "maybe tomorrow." So we had heard how much snow was in Malad and packed our gear, but had no idea how much there would be. It went up to our knees in the backyard.
Kesler lasted about 20 minutes. We cleared off the trampoline so he would have somewhere to sit. Yeah that really is him in there :) He only wanted to stay out if I would hold him Grandpa Thayne didn't think that our first snowman was big enough so we built such a big one that I had to get on Bryson's shoulders to put the head on.
It snowed all day so the pictures weren't that great. The camera had a hard time focusing.There is nothing Brevin loves more than being with his cousins. He had so much fun with Breelle and Tiger. The poor cat was so happy to get some attention she didn't leave their sides.
