It's official...we're headed to Phoenix!!!

We are so excited that it's finally official and we will be moving to Phoenix for school in the fall! That's right Kara, Cherish, and Ryan...we're comin' for ya!!! (c: And ridiculous 120* summer days, too. Drat.

Aren't the *kids* supposed to get tired???

I thought that signing the kids up for swimming lessons would be a great way to tucker out the little ones and keep them entertained. EPIC FAIL. All I have accomplished is tuckering myself out!!! (c: But they have had a great time...Caden learning to swim and Skylar...well, doing what Skylar does...but definitely not swimming. He loves his teachers (most of the time) and won't leave Chase alone. EVER. I think he has a man-crush.

Can you believe I did this??? Neither can I...

For some odd reason, I decided that I was going to reupholster our wingback chair...myself. Yes, I think I am weird, too. But I really like projects and since I didn't much care for the fabric it was upholstered in, it went from this...

To this...

Now I know that depending on your taste, this might not be an improvement!!! (c: But obviously (since I am making you read an entire blog post about it...) I was pretty darn proud of myself! Free chair, a couple dollars of fabric and some elbow grease later...

Another Conversation with a Three Year-Old

As we are passing the Albuquerque Temple...

Caden: Oo! Oo! Mom, look it's the temple!
Me: Oh yeah! Should we sing the temple song? (I start singing...)
Caden: Mom, what do we do in the temple?
Me: Well, we pray and listen and learn.
Caden: But you have to be married to go to the temple.
Me: No, you don't have to be married, you can go in when you're twelve.
Caden: I'm not twelve yet...but I'll be big soon!
Me: Yep and then you can go in.
Caden: And then I'll get married in the temple! When I'm big like daddy! And when Skylar is big like you, then I will take her to the temple and marry her.
Me: (trying not to laugh) Well, I think when you're big you might find a girl that you would like to marry more than Skylar...
Caden: NO!!!! I'm going to marry Skylar 'cause I *LOVE* her!!!
Me: Okay, okay...I guess if you still want to when you're big you can do that...

I just saw no more point in arguing and trying to explain that we would like our family tree to have branches on it...pretty cute, though...(c:
