Pinewood Derby!

Thanks to a lot of hard work on Matt's part and a lot of observing on Easton's part; Easton took 1st place at the Pinewood Derby. It was the first time that anyone of the boys has taken first place.

Needless to say there was a lot of celebrating!

The other day we were driving down the street past the State Capitol Building. It has a steeple on the top Sami said:
Sami: "That building reminds me of the temple with the pointy thing on top."

Me: "Ya it kind of does."

Sami: "Except it does not have an angel on the top."

Me: "No it does not."

Ava: "Who is Moroni?" (Obviously I have slacked on the teaching part with her.

Me: "Moroni was a prophet in the Book of Mormon that did a lot of great things."

Ava went on to ask what kind of things and I went on to tell her a few things. She then said,

"Man, he must be pretty tired from doing all that stuff!"

More Popsicles Please!

After numerous bouts with strep throat, sleep apnea, endless snoring and horrible breath, Ava finally went under the knife. She made it through the surgery with flying colors. Coming out of the anesthesia was a different story; super groggy, throwing up and not wanting to swallow her spit.

Once we got her home and starting in on the popsicles she started feeling much better. After two weeks of recovery, she is doing much better. She is sleeping much better and the snoring has stopped. Her voice has also gone up a few octaves. Instead of the little nasally voice that she had, she now has a nice squeeky voice.
