Last week was our RS Enrichment Birthday Party. We played some getting to know you games and had great food and a great time. Our theme was purses. We had our purses weighed as a game and some great mini talks on the bags that we carry as women and mothers. This purse was featured on a table in the corner. I thought it was a purse.

I know, I know. That dramatic title is really in keeping with my personality, isn't it?

A couple weeks ago, during the Home and Garden Show in Sandy, we spent the night at a hotel. Highlights of hotel-stays are usually the pool. This stay was no different. We all dressed in our swimming garb, Chase putting his dramatic flair into goggles and a life jacket on top of his suit. As we rode the elevator down, it seemed to stop at every floor, picking up a new passenger everytime. The first time the first passenger entered the elevator and asked, "You going swimmin'?", it was okay. The next couple of times about made me eek out a "here's your sign". All three kids were unbelievably quiet this whole time. After the last passenger entered and stated the obvious, Chase quietly blurted out,
"And I look ridick-a-lous"
Well, judge for yourself.

then you have to be prepared to laugh.
Jeff and I were sitting on the couch today, taking a break from working on our dining room, surfing the web to try to find something fun to put on our new blank wall in the dining room. We heard some rather embarrassing noises floating up the stairs from the playroom. After the "noise" we heard the most fabulous peals of laughter. It was very contagious, causing Jeff and I to bust out in our own fits of giggles. Finally, the parade of flatulants and hysteria came up the stairs and into the living room. This is what we witnessed:
Apparently, you can take a straw, insert one end into your mouth and the other end in your armpit, give a little squeeze, blow and get a great noise. It was a toss up as to which sound was better...the farrfignougan sound, or those great laughs.

And speaking of dining rooms, here is an update for those of you that have inquired.
I should wait until everything is done...for a grand unveiling. But, I can't imagine that my dining room has the ability to make you all sit on pins and needles. AND, at the rate we go...who knows when we will finish!
It is definitely a work in progress. Jeff got all of the molding on the bottom and the top molding on the family room side done today. We just need the molding on the dining room side, a massive and beautiful something or other on the now naked wall and red paint. Someday it will all be done!

This past weekend was the Home and Garden Show in Sandy. It's a pretty big deal each year. This year, Jeff and his brothers were able to get a booth for their cabinet business. It was quite a spectaular event, I must say. We were able to spend some time there on Friday, spend the night at a hotel and then some more time there on Saturday. Some of the displays there were amazing, especially landscaping companys. They brought in trees, dirts, waterfalls, rivers, rock formations, pavers, flower beds...all in the indoor arena. It was really neat. I just can't even imagine the work they put into those booths, with extremely minimal time to set up and take down.
