Good night.

Adorable baby and a toothbrush.

Reminded me of these pictures of Ethne-

And then I saw these pictures and thought how crazy it is that my girls are sooooo BIG now!!

Why do kids have to grow up???

Anyway, here's a picture of me and my honey.  Which reminds me, my sister pointed out how silly it was of me to curl my hair before going on a motorcycle, so let the record show that I didn't know I was going to ride the motorcycle before I curled my hair. 

(and p.s. it wasn't that hard to curl my hair anyway because I just showered in the morning and used the wrapping method like how my hair is in this picture:

I bought the kids a big bag of legos from the second-hand store because it was 50% off and had lots of wheels and pull-back cars in it, and we're always running short of wheels and we always love cars.  The kids were all enthralled and loved looking through them.  I tend to think that kids use their creativity more when they get a big grab-bag of legos than when they get a set with instructions.  When Brett got home he was excited about them too and had to build a car really quick before we had prayers.  And my floors have been full of legos ever since.

Orrin was tired and ornery one night and went to sleep right here.

I love my cute little Wolfie!!

He's close to not nursing at all anymore, which makes me a bit sad.  Also at his last checkup he was a little anemic, so he's now taking iron supplements every day.

This kid is very very handsome.

This kid is very very cute.  And she's getting some new top teeth which is always fun.

Kids in the tub.  Talmage's faces crack me up.

News:  Brett is going to Utah to interview at the University of Utah!!!!!  !!!!!!!!!   !!!!!!!!!

To end with, here is a cool video.  I like the song and it makes winter sports look fun, but mostly I love the dancers:

Date and Chicken.

Brett and I went out on a date last night.  It was pretty exciting as I had a new shirt and new shoes to wear and I even curled my hair.  (Although I didn't realize it was rather frizzy.  Oh well.)  I wanted a picture of the whole outfit--including the shoe--but none really turned out that great and it was difficult because it was already 7:30 and completely dark.  ANyway.

So then I took a picture in the bathroom mirror, and when Brett walked by, I was like, "Yep, taking a selfie in the bathroom mirror."  And he said, "A selfie? They have a word for that now?"  I was thinking--where have you been the last few years, under a rock? :)

Anyway, I still think I'll have to dress up really nice in my spiffy outfit sometime when it's actually light out and I can get a picture that does it justice.

Brett and I rode his motorcycle to Bern.  It was very cold, but I was okay except for my knees.   Everything else I could hide behind Brett and stayed out of the wind mostly.  But my knees were so cold they kind of felt like they were burning.  But hey, when you don't have kids with you you gotta ride the motorcycle.  :)

 We met up with some friends Alex and Damaris (I explained to Damaris that in order to actually get out of the house we have to have a commitment to someone) and went to a cafe and Brett had some apple strudel (pictured below) and I had bruschetta and Alex and Damaris had fancy hot chocolates.

Then we took them on their first geocache ever in the Altstadt.  It was kindof fun because Brett had to use his pocket knife to get to the cache.

Wyatt helping me with dinner by shredding the zucchini.  With his teeth.  :)

He's so cute.

Jethro and his robot.


Hazel's string art.

Hazel has a little camera now and it's kind of funny what pictures she takes.  It's also interesting seeing myself in pictures.  Look--there I am cooking dinner.

And she found out all these things that I had no idea the camera could do-- like add pictures.  So she can take pictures of fingers and make them into faces. :)

This morning we did Saturday's work, Brett and I got into our seemingly-obligatory Saturday morning argument because he needs some sort of outside project, but doesn't have one, so he ends up completely revamping some part of our house which bothers me.  But anyway, we got over it quickly this time.  Then we had lunch and while we waiting for it to cook, we had a little punching practice, and I held up a couch cushion and Brett was punching it and it was practically knocking me over and then I crouched in a little ball and hid behind the cushion.  Then Brett held it for me and I was telling him that I think women just can't really hurt men and  that even if I punched as hard as I could he could pretty much brush it off, and then I did punch as HARD as I could and Brett said he thought I could hurt him.  Then I started going crazy punching and kicking and yelling and he ran away.  :)  Then I the littlest boys had naps and when they woke up we went and cleaned the church.  And on the way home we bought some Güggeli poulet.  Which means rotisserie chicken bought at a place that looks like this:

Bei Interesse schicken wir gerne die Fahrzeug-Dokumentation zu. Einfach ein Mail schicken an: dreamteam@natura-gueggeli.ch 
 When I was looking for the picture, I found this one.  I don't know what it means, but it's funny.


The guy who sold me the chicken even called me a schöne Frau, which means beautiful woman, which was actually more weird than complimentary.  But the chicken was delicious. The end.

Hoo Hoo Video and Boys are Wild Animals.

Wyatt learned how to say 'hoo hoo' and it is the SINGLE MOST ADORABLE thing in the world!!!  I mean, come on--those delicious little baby lips in a perfect puckery o??  He slays me.

Hazel took this next video with her camera.  I didn't even know she was filming.

 (Forgive the chocolatey and drooled-on shirt... Wyatt's a slobbery little cherub.)

Orrin had a nap earlier in the day.  It made his hair pretty awesome.

This is where the boys start becoming wild animals.

Such savage hoodlums are boys.

I'll bite your face!  No I'll bite your face!! Snarl growl yip yip!!

Man I love these boys.
