The start of a good day...

The kids brought this note and some toast into my bedroom one day last week.
They wanted it to be breakfast in bed but I was already up so I ate it at the kitchen table.
Such a sweet thought.

In addition to the note, they had also cleaned their rooms and put their breakfast dishes
 in the dishwasher.
It was a great way to start the day.

Candy Creations

When they were supposed to be getting ready for school, the kids were doing this instead:
They called them their "pets".
They have been begging for a dog for months but I have yet to agree.
I guess this is their way of compensating.

I don't mind at all.
These "pets" don't shed or lick my face.
I can deal with that.

Future Dentists?

One Sunday during quiet time (my favorite time of the week to take a nap!), the kids decided to make this craft.  It involved a little paper, a lot of tape and plenty of creativity.

This is their portable dentist office.
The person's mouth opens wide so they can do their work.  
I love it when they find something to keep themselves entertained.

Chuck E. Cheese

One day during the kid's break, we went to Ogden to go to the mall.  Because the kids were good, Ryan convinced me we should take them to Chuck E. Cheese for lunch. None of us had ever been. Ryan said, "I've heard they have really bad pizza."  Sounds great!

The pizza was nothing to write home about but the kids loved the games.  My favorite was the air hockey table.  It made me want to get one in for our basement. ;)  

The kids loved skee ball and Corbin thought we should get one of those for the basement.  

Despite the negative connotations associated with Chuck E. Cheese, 
it was a fun way to spend the afternoon.
