Jackson is Awesome!!!!

Jackson finally got to try his hand at skiing. Ever since his cousin, Max(who is a totally avid skier), visited a few weeks ago, he has been really wanting to try it. We went up to Alta. I was ready to spend the day going slow and showing Jackson just what to do.

He totally showed me up!

I did kindof show him a few basics (the wedge and turning) and he took it from there. He's a natural! As we were riding the chairlift he kept looking for the steeper hills and little jumps.

He never complained about falling, or his ski coming off and having to get it and fight to get it back on. The only thing he complained about was that we were taking too long for lunch! He wanted to get back up there.

I really hope we can make this happen again.

Our Thankful Tree

I cut out a naked tree shape
and tons of leaf shapes

we all wrote the things we are thankful for on the leaves.

After we got them all taped up there, I was so shocked at how beautiful it was. As I was cutting out the tree, I thought it looked ugly. As I cut out the leaves, I thought they were ugly too. But when they all were up there, I could not love this thing more. I hope the kids can stand to leave it alone so it can stay up for the rest of the season.

This is my other recent project. My neighbor hosted a class to make these beautiful temple pictures. I'm sure it doesn't look like much in the picture, but we built the frame, mounted the photo, and it even has a texture on the photo to make it look totally professional. I am so in love with it. I am just trying to decide if I want to "antique" the frame or not.

And this is my constant, all-consuming project.

I always have so many projects on my mind. Stupid housework always gets in the way.

Halloween 2010

This year we had 4/5ths homemade costumes.

Jackson was a Mad Scientist

Molly was Medusa
Grant was Superman
Tommy was a mummy
When Molly told me she wanted to be Medusa - I had no idea how to do the snakes. I asked around everywhere and everyone. I had a one neighbor tell me he used to spike his mohawk with elmers glue. We tried it and it didn't really work. Another neighbor told me she used to use unflavored gelatin (Knox). We tried it and it worked so totally great!! I mixed the gelatin slightly stronger than the package suggests. Then I took a section of hair ran some gelatin through it and twisted and rolled it on sponge rollers. It takes a few hours to set up. It turns out really crunchy and hard. The extra cool thing is that it washes right out!!!

We were bored for UEA weekend and decided to go to the zoo. The only problem was - so did everyone else. It was quite crowded but who cares, the kids weren't sitting in front of a screen of some sort, and I wasn't walking around my house feeling guilty that I wasn't cleaning it.
