Bones and Rocks

  Yesterday I picked Tyler up from school.  As we were walking to the car he tells me that at lunch there were bones in his turkey.  I'm thinking gross.  He tells me how he saved them to give to Mike and me.  We get in the car and Tyler excitedly shows me his bag of bones.  The bones are chicken wing bones, gross gross gross.  He thinks they are so cool.  Boys! 
  Last night Jack had a nightmare.  He told me he had a dream where the people were collecting little rocks, the rocks were turning into monsters.  Rocks that turn into monsters? 
  Everyday they say or do something funny.  Love my rascals.

Furniture Face Lift

Lately I have been in love with the idea of refinishing furniture.  I love finding something that is out of date or run down and making it into something new.  With a little bit of paint a treasure is found.  I found this little console cabinet on Craigs list for a steal of a deal and had to have it.  Mike was not too trilled with my find, but it was worth the golf net in my living room. ;).  I'm working on a chair I found at good will for a dollar.  Post pictures when I'm finished.

Mommy Moment

Over Christmas break I had a moment, where I stopped and realized my boys are growing up.  The boys got some books out for me to read to them.  I was busy and told them to look at them while they waited for me.  Tyler started reading to Jack, it was so sweet.  Definitely a mommy moment. 
 Over Christmas break we moved into our new place.  I love the house and the yard.  I really miss my old friends and neighbors though. Tukee people will be hard to top. Hopefully our ward will be great we will see Sunday.  Last week we went to the wrong ward because of the time change (lots of old people not a lot of kids :( ).  Tyler is liking school so far, I really like his new teacher she seems really nice and on the ball.  He no longer wants to ride the bus. He wants me to drive him to school......not happening on a regular basis but maybe occasionally.  My anatomy final is next week, I can't wait to get it finished.  School has been stressing me out BIG time.  I'm not ready for Algebra, but that's what is next on the agenda, booooo.  Hopefully I don't have mental breakdown, I feel like there is a possibility.  Its been a stressful year.
