{Where in the world are the Carmacks?}

I wonder if they got lost or something since they never post anymore?  Hmmm What do you guys think?  Where are they?

288,000 Jelly Beans!

This is the coolest video ever!!! After you watch it, make sure to watch the making of it. My girls and I watched it over and over. It's amazing!
Now I'm off to Itunes to buy this song. :)

The whole gang at Uncle Cody's Monster House.

BYU Football Fireside

Last week we got to go the BYU football team fireside. We went as a youth activity with church. It was such a great night, and I loved listening to and learning from the stories of some of the players and their coach. Hearing all those big tough guys singing was also so cool! The Spirit was so strong, you could really feel their testimonies. I loved it! (So did all of the young women!)
It was especially fun getting to see Danny Sorenson, the safety, and meeting Justin Sorenson, the kicker. Our families are in the same ward in California, and it was funny seeing them in Texas. :)
*nothing like a couple of Sorensons to make you feel really short!*
(stand up straight, Paige!)
*We loved seeing Bishop and family!*

house cleaning tip

Today I thought I would try a new Scentsy scent. It's called Clean Breeze. It's a really fresh, clean laundry type smell. I put it in this morning while Miles was at school. When he came home, he walked in the door and said "Mom, you cleaned the house today? It smells good!"
So my tip of the day is: Don't clean your house, just make it smell like you did.* :)

*If you want your house to smell as good as mine, you can order Scentsy from me anytime! :)

first day of schools...

Here are my girls on the first day of school. They are all a little excited and a little bit nervous.
After they got home, they all reported a great first day. Yay!

Livee is in 4th grade, she really likes her class and her teacher. She is also happy that she gets to be in choir this year. Zoe is in 7th grade, and this is her first year in a school without a sister. She is doing great, and she is very glad to have some classes with her good friends. Paige is in 9th grade. She loves high school and she is loving seminary too. She is on the JV soccer team.
Miles started preschool this year. He gets to go on Tuesdays and Thursdays. He loves it! He also thinks it's super cool to have Grayson in his class, and Rowdy right next door.

My four kids are in four schools. It's a little crazy, but they all have really good teachers and classes. They are coming home from school happy, and that makes me happy!

Minute To Win It

Zoe wanted to have a birthday party like her favorite TV show. It was so fun!!!
Here are some highlights:
Zoe doing the "Paper Dragon"
Rowdy and Miles playing "Ready Spaghetti"
Livee with her "Junk in the Trunk"
JoEllen doing the"Breakfast Scramble"
and the grand finale... "Face the Cookie"
I am a little sad that she has so many candles that they barely fit on a cupcake!
Happy Birthday Zoe!!!
That was the funnest/funniest/laughiest birthday party ever!

Happy Birthday Zoe!!!

Dear Zoe,
I look at these pictures of you, and I feel so blessed to be your mom. Your sweet spirit and personality shine through! I love your giggle, and I don't think that there is anyone that is not affected by it. It is infectious! :) I am glad that you make good choices. You finished your Faith in God goals, and now you are excited to start working on your Personal Progress in YW with Paige. I am so lucky to be serving there now, so that I can be with my two big girls. I love that you have a good big sister to look up to. And I love that you are a good big sister to Livee. Happy Birthday Zoe! I love you! And I like you!
-Love Mom

My new (sort of) kitchen table.

I've never loved my kitchen table, but the size and shape were good for my space. It has this tw0-tone stain look, which just isn't my style. Also, the finish is not so good, and it highlights every little nick or scratch. Not good for a house that is always full of kids! So I found this super cute laminated cotton fabric from Ikea and Craig just stapled it on. Quick and easy. I love it!

Elliot approves.....

...of Uncle Tad's famous ribs. Yum!

Why do they love Uncle Cody so much?

Freestyle "diving" Competition

We spent the afternoon at the T.A. Bowlers yesterday. I just want to say... Thank you for getting a pool. It was super nice of you. We love it!!!
The kids decided to have a jumping competition:

and a couple of group jumps:

So, what do you think? Who won?
