Top of the Morning!

Some mornings you just have to pop the screen out of your bedroom window and take a picture of the clouds! 11728826_10154503772292524_9129415765576263151_o

Tonight is the final performance of the Manti Mormon Miracle Pageant!! :)

Thankful for summer nights full of scriptural truth and hope.

A few pics from last night – love these little Nephites!

One of my favorite parts? Walking around barefoot everywhere and Meri’s cute observation that the warm asphalt “feels like cookie”. She seriously mentioned it every night! :)

And the ninjas behind the scenes – Jacob and Josh – helped their Grandma Pipes this year with props and sets. Their favorite part? Shooting off the fire in the storm scenes right before Christ comes to America.

Stage crew has it’s advantages! Those down times when you’re not moving stuff, there is usually just enough light somewhere to read by. 😉

Jim Bob captured this moment last night:

Makes me smile. Those would be my boys!!

{Ha! I’ll work on getting it facing the right way. 😉 There it is for now though. :) }

Miss Katey

This creative chica keeps me smiling.

Here she is showing off her new hair accessory from my cousin and good friend Veralyn. :)  Katey's_Thank-you_Veralyn-2

She decided that her outfit was simply not fancy enough to go with it – so she added a skirt she made out of a napkin. 😉

Later that day she decided it was time to freshen up her belt wardrobe…

Yep, that’s how this chica rolls… and I dig it. :)

Spotlight: Joshua

Dad: Tonight we honor Joshua.

Andrew: For being Joshua.

Josh: Give me highly expensive gifts!

Jacob: How about a post on Mom’s blog? That’s highly expensive in love.

Katey: We’re just talking about Josh?

Josh: Just me!

Meri: You have no fuzzies in your toes Mom!

Andrew: I like that Josh likes to play on my Minecraft world. It’s fun to play with other people.

Dad: Cooperative play is always more fun.

Katey: Is it my turn?

Meri: Round and around with peoples.

Katey: I like to play with Josh and he is very kind! Can you add to mine that he’s funny??

Caleb: I like to do dishes with Josh. We did them today.

Meri: I love about Josh that he makes me food. Sandwiches and only water. And he has a cool water bottle.

Hyrum would probably say: abahah buhah josh (Hyrum’s sleeping at the moment. He’s prepping for his third time sleeping through the night – in a row, ah yeah!)

Dad: One of the things I love about Josh is that he is very willing to do things with anybody at any age. At scout camp he was out canoeing with boys older than him and boys younger than him. It didn’t matter and he was friendly with everybody. He shared his treats with everyone too.

Mom: Josh is such a kind soul. He’s a big helper with his baby brother and has a funny, dry sense of humor. His favorite photo he took at scout camp is a close-up of hamburgers. (My boy!) It’s a pretty sweet shot. Love that he takes his talents and develops them – from playing the trombone to perfecting his pancake flipping skills.

Jacob: I love how that no matter what Josh does, he does it enthusiastically. Whether he’s playing, imagining, going to scout camp, biking… it’s all done with energy.

Autumn: Josh is a great sharer.

Josh: I’m innocent!!!

Drewby: There was glitter everywhere.

Josh right after Stacy, our photographer, told us she had captured the family photo, the one – the “money shot”.

Meri and I both *adore* it! <3 I was definitely not the only excited one:

Those colors – I swoon. Meri says the shirt is “windproof” too! 😉

2015-05-23_0002

I love the fabric – print and stretchy feel. It’s delightful and those tags – eek!

Karly’s details are impeccable as always! So excited for my dear friend and that she is sharing her talents with us. Her first craft fair was today and she rocked it!

Machine washable, my fav…

Monarch butterfly wings compliment nicely – and Meri, she knows how to fly. 😉

Have patience, sir

“Waiting can be hard. Children know it, and so do adults. We live in a world offering fast food, instant messaging, on-demand movies, and immediate answers to the most trivial or profound questions. We don’t like to wait.” We’ve been learning about patience in our family – like studying it. We read those words from […]

Why, Hi There.

Friend-1

Hyrum discovered a new friend this morning! It started on the bed with a peek: He then scootched over the edge – ever so carefully… to get a closer look. One of the best friends you can have in this life buddy!
