temple open house.

Tonight we went with our kids and our friends Sherry and Jory to see the new Oquirrh Mountain Temple. I am sorry but i think it has got to be one of the worst names of a temple ever. It is pronounced ochre like the know the one that BIob Ross is always painting with on his show. Anyways. Enough. It was beautiful. We had a great time. My kids were so reverent, and since this was their second time through and open house they knew more of what to expect. Oliver kept looking forward to seeing the "wedding rooms, with the mirrors" . It was fun.

Before the temple we went to IKEA for dinner. I ate WAY too much. I keep doing that. I spend 90 percent of my day regretting eating whatever it is that I ate. I just don't feel like I have room this time. I still eat tons and then I feel it. Yuck. While at IKEA we put the kids in the playland and walked around with our was fun.
Yay a family picture.  We never get one of these.  Look at my little belly.  (I have a very hard time finding something that fits me that is still church wear)  Mom I know Oliver is wearing the tie you are going to give him but he had already found it in my suitcase and I thought it would make him look a lot nicer.  I told him he could wear it to the temple and then he had to wait for you to get home to give it to him.  Sorry. 
waiting for the tour to start
Rob was better behaved then I have ever seen him in his life. 

These next two pictures are pictures of what is going on in my life right now.  It is has been rainy and cold lately so the only thing we have been doing lately is going to the store every once in a while with all 6 kids.  We spend a lot of time in the car.  The kids are so good in there.  They are watching a lion king sing a long DVD right now and it is so cute to hear them all singing at the top of their lungs. 
Grace, I love this girl and she loves me.  Every time she sees me she freaks out and screams my name and runs to me and hugs me for a long time.  I honestly can't get enough of her.
Here is Rob and Oli just as we are pulling into Costco.  Rob had taken a nap earlier so he had CRAZY hair.  He wouldn't let me fix it either. 

That is all.  I feel so boring lately.  Nothing is going on.  My main focus in life right now is 

1. getting Rob's eczema under control.  His poor legs got to the point where he was bleeding.  I have been putting the creams and lotions on like 5 times a day and we are finally turning a corner.  NO more scabs.  It is honestly a full time job keeping up with his leg care.  Yikes.
2. Trying to discipline my kids.  They have been out of control lately.  Yesterday as I was in the shower I could hear them fighting like crazy.  Rob was stuck in a crib and Oliver was trying to get him out but was getting frustrated because Rob wouldn't let him help.  So Rob was CRYING and oliver was yelling mean things at the top of his lungs.  I sat in the hot water praying that I would be able to figure out a way to make these boys obey me.  I am working on it.  I have 36 days to whip them into little angels before my parents get home.  Hahaahah.

i think that you can do it in 34 and 1/2 days, so that gives you a full 36 hours to chill.

Great post! Thats the longest I've seen Olivers hair. Which tie is Oliver wearing? Do I need to get different sizes? It does look good.
We got off the phone and agreed that we love to hear of our children and grandchildren going to the Temple. Love the pictures give Oli and ROB a hug from grandma.LOVE GRANDMA CONNIE

Love this post. It makes me want to go to that temple too.

I didn't know you took pictures in the car. You should have taken one of the tantrum Carolina threw when we were leaving costco. That would've been a priceless gem to share with grandparents.
