Reverently, quietly...

So we did it. We made it through church. We were actually at the church house 15 minutes early!! We are NEVER early. I didn't want to go in yet and the kids were being soooo good all buckled in their seats and watching a movie so we drove around for 10 minutes. We got in and sat down and before the sacrament even started Carolina and Rob were fighting LOUDLY over everything we had. After a while I took Carolina out because she was crying...and I just thought we would separate the two problem children. But no, R.O.B. threw such a loud tantrum that someone from another family came over to Cortney and told him that they would watch Oli and Grace so Cortney could take Rob out. Hahaaa. Cortney was so embarrassed. He was really flustered when he got out to me. So I just kept Rob and Carolina out for the last 20 minutes and we spent the time walking around the outside of the church. Then we dropped them both off at nursery. And I got to enjoy 2 hours with just Grace. She is so adorable one on one. When we went to leave both Robbie and Carolina were bawling their eyes out in the nursery. I think Rob started crying when non of the parents coming were his and Carolina was crying because he was. I asked her why she was crying and she said..."I don't know". I was pretty proud of us. That was a lot of babies. It actually made me feel relieved I can't get pregnant for a while more...and sad at the same time because it will take forever for my family to grow (okay so maybe forever is a little bit dramatic).
When Cortney got home from his meetings he was surprised we were already ready. So he shot a picture to document it. (I hadn't actually done anybodies hair yet...although I will say the finished products weren't much better) I don't know how we all ended up wearing red white and blue. Almost all clothes for boys are red and blue and my sister just happened to pack something that matched my kids church clothes.

Hey, Ashley! You sure are a brave sister to take on these two kids for Joey and Cali. We had so much fun with them in Los Angeles, and it made a huge difference for them not to have the girls. There is no way they could have made it through the BYU game...hot and long!! It was kind of great for Ty and Jack to have the spotlight to themselves, too, because sometimes babies just demand the attention. So, thanks for pitching in and allowing them to have this great family time together...Lori

Ok...so I know that I have never really looked at your blog until now and when I saw this cute picture I thought, "Holy Crap! Cortney has FOUR kids??? When did this happen?" Ok, so I figured out that only two of them are yours. Phew....Hi from the Olsens!
