... Carrie LOVES to draw. She had an assignment at school to draw herself... even though she is drawing people all the time, when it came to drawing herself she really struggled. She wanted it to be just perfect. There were many tears over this assignment! However, once she decided she could do it, she went into the bathroom, looked in the mirror, and drew this picture. She was really happy with how it turned out, and I was so proud of her. She is amazing!! I love seeing her drawings and her artwork! ...
... Matthew asks me every single day, "where did daddy go?" He knows where he is.... (at work)... but he misses him when he is gone. This day he wanted to send a couple of pictures to his daddy to make him laugh, and these are the faces he made ...
... Who doesn't love getting mail?! These kids love getting mail from their grandma and grandpa Allen. This was for Valentine's Day ...

...practicing the piano. Andrew picked up the piano very quickly, and continues to do well with it!! I have been teaching the kids myself, and not always the best at making sure we spend time on it. Luckily he is good about practicing!!...
...HAPPY BIRTHDAY, to Kevin!! We celebrated with his favorite treat, kahlua cream pie from Marie Calendars...
... Matthew got this bike for his birthday last year. He was only interested in it for a couple of days, then didn't want anything to do with it. For what ever reason he decided he wanted to try riding it one day. In just a short time he had gotten the hang of it, and would spend hours a day riding his bike in the backyard! I love how he cheers for anything he is excited about. :) ...
... advice we received from our bishop. This is exactly right ...
