So most of my friends know I HATE LAUNDRY!!!!!! But my house has gotten to the point my children don't have clothes in there closets. Oh how I wish there was a laundry fairy! Please come to my house!!!! If I lived closer to Jennifer(my sister) she would be my fairy. When Forrest and I lived in Phx...I would take my laundry to my sisters and she would do it while I kept my neices and nephew busy. How I long for the days again. So I may not be blogging for a few days due to laundry issues and Halloween at the end of the week.

When it comes to Halloween.....Mathew has decided to be a robot, Both of the little girls are going to be Princess AGAIN! I really tried to convince Ella to be something other than that! But she really wants to be a princess, so that is what she is. As for Grant, He is going to be Larry the Cable Guy! I think I will have some cute pictures of the kids. As for Caroline????? I am still not sure on that one. Yet!

Anna's 3rd Birthday Cake

Forrest has done it again!!!!! He makes the little girls their cakes every year. He make a Gabriella cake for Anna this year. For all who don't know.....Gabriella is from High School Musical. I think it turned out great and our 3yr old is so excited about it. She really wants to take out the doll in the middle but I told her she had to wait until daddy comes home. I am so lucky to have such a great hubby!

Here are some pic's of MaryKate's little boy Aidan. He is the cutest thing....I have never seen a baby with a permanent smile on his face. I got the privilage of watching him on the 23rd of Sept. and he was the best baby ever! All you had to do is give him food and he was a happy camper. Ella and Anna loved playing with him....By the end of the day, Aidan was so tired from playing, he totally crashed in the car on the way home.

Life on the Farm!

56 Barred Rock Chicks

34 Cornish Cross Chicks

Well we ordered lots of chicken but they aren't all for us. We had a couple families that wanted to start having chickens. So as most mormons do we got in bulk. It was alot cheaper to do it this way. All you have to do is order them on the internet and the post office delivers them to the house. Our neighbors little boy was asking where I got them from and I told him I ordered them off the computer. He was so amazed about it. When he was telling his mom....He said "Jodi went to her computer and chicks just came out of the computer screen. So when can we order ours?" So next time I need to clarify about the whole shipping process for the neighbor kid.

For added information for all who are curious.....Barred Rock chicks are the egg layers and the Cornish Cross chicks are for dinner. The Cornish Cross chicks are a meat bird and they put on enough weight in 6-10 weeks you can butcher them. So I will have a freezer filled with chicken around christmas time.

1. I hate having my family load the dishwasher if they don't do it just right it annoys me.
2. I took sing lesson when I was 15 and was in the Sound of Music production the same year.

Well Caroline got her 2 month check up yesterday! She is 23 inches long and 14.8 oz lbs. She is in the 90Th percentile for her age. So in Eagar terms she is right on schedule with all of other kiddos. The doctor said she was very healthy and looked great! I am very thankful for that!

I look back when Ella was a baby and she was 4 1/2 weeks early. She struggled to learn to eat and I had to monitor for months to make sure she was getting enough food. That is why I love that Caroline is flourishing. Caroline has decided that she is a breastfeed only baby. So it is really good that I am a stay at home mommy.

That is all there is to report for today! The rest of my day will be spent cleaning and more cleaning,....I want to try to have a nice looking house for Sat. and Sun. Conference. That way we can just sit and relax and listen to the Prophet.
