6 Flags Fright Night!

A girl in Ella's ward invites her to 6 Flags for the Frito Lay company party.  Last year Tiffany went with her and got to enjoy 6 Flags, Fright Night style!  This year Tiffany couldn't go because she had to work.  She offered my services to take Ella and her friend.  I also got to bring Sandra along too.  It was a fun night, even if we didn't spend a lot of time on the big crazy rides ;).

Sandra with me, and Ella with Emily, on the run away train ride!

I chose not to go on the Aquaman ride.  I really didn't want to be soaked all evening long.  The girls were sure wet tho!

Having fun with some of the scary decorations!

So, we decided to try the Roaring Rapids ride.  Well, actually we decided to just stay on it .... 4 times in a row (since no one else was in line they just let us ride until we wanted off). 
Let's just say we were all soaked... I was especially soaked!  So much for not wanting to be wet.  Oh, and since it was late we all started getting cold too.  Fun times!

Overall it was  a great night!  It was fun to take the girls out.  Hopefully I will get to go play again :).  Yay for 6 Flags!

Arrgg Mateys!

While Tiffany and I were gone to Time Out for Women it happened to be Krispy Kreme's dress like a pirate day!  Jeff was such a good Daddy and took the kids to get their free donuts!  Lorna didn't want to dress up so she missed out on her free dozen.  It was fun to have yummy donuts in the house for a while.  Let's just say that 5 dozen donuts doesn't last too long when you have 6 kids :).  

Happy Pirate Day!

TOFW 2015

Tiffany and I got to go to Time Out for Women together this year!  Well, sort of.  Tiffany is working so she couldn't go for the Friday night part.  Ella had a ticket but couldn't go on Saturday due to a church commitment.  Well, I really wanted to go Friday night and that meant that maybe I could help out and get Ella out to the even too!  So Ella was my date on Friday night and Tiffany on Saturday.  It was a fun weekend and really nice to hear uplifting messages and music.  I think some of the others in the past have been better, but it really depends on who is booked and if that message is what I need.  Ella had a fun time and even ran into a girl from her stake :).

Tiffany and I always have fun :).  Kind of hard to be together and not enjoy what we are doing.  We heard really good messages and ended on a talk about being positive.  Life can be a struggle, but we can endure and even endure well.  Yay for a fun girls weekend!

Here's to many more fun girls nights and spending time together!

Clothing the naked

Sandra has lots of cute little animals.  She loves them :).  She found some scraps of material and asked me to make her animals little robes.  I wasn't ready to tackle that project, and the material was so small!  I ended up saying no.  Well, Sandra is one lucky girl because her big brother was willing to help out! Talmage decided to help and got out his Boy Scout sewing kit to make it all happen!  What a good big brother!

The cloaks turned out so cute too!  Teach us to love Lord of the Rings so much :)

What a happy Sandra!

Sandra and Talmage playing with the animals in their home Sandra made for them. 

A week later I was looking for Clark... I actually figured he had fallen asleep.  When I found him he was curled up reading a library book!  He may not be able to read quite yet, but that doesn't stop him from loving books just the same!

We have some awesome kids :)
