more pics

My kids took the majority of pictures I am/have posted recently. Some of them I really liked the composition of. Like this snake.

playing with cameras

I have seen many naked baby pictures- because baby butts are just plain cute. But how often have you seen naked babies taking pictures?

in every life a little sugar must fall

In my case it was about 2 cups. Right on my shirt and over the floor. yup someone forgot to close the lid on the sugar container last time they used it (Probably me). and so sugar fell.

Sweet little angels

What do you get when you go through the effort of adding some bubbles to the kid's bath?

Lots of bubbles in the kids bath. Becasue I was carrying down the dirty clothes I forgot and left the soap upstairs. I walk in later to check on them and there are literally bubbles 5 feet high! And all the soap is gone. Well, I guess I can't complain that they didn't use soap.

Yea, but did they wash behind their ears?

Fun Fact

Butterflies taste with their feet.

I don't know about you, but my feet don't have the sense of taste- but they are capable of smelling.

Butterflies have to dry their wings before they can fly.

And I usually find myself winging things before I learn to fly with them.

Once a caterpillar has eaten enough (and shed it's skin about 4 times) it creates a cocoon and metephorisizes.

And once I have eaten enough and shed my outer covering, wrap myself in a cocoon of blankets and don't leave until I dream of wings.

stream of thought blogging

another beautiful week in Minnesota,
If we keep this record of weather up we will become the new California. "New California" sounds like something out of a sci fi movie. That has nothing but the name in common with it's earthly name sake.

I am not sure what else to say. I have been teaching adult Sunday school these past 2 weeks. i have enjoyed it and get frustrate at how uninterested many people are in the topic. But Being on the other side of the classroom most of the time, I understand many reasons for the lack of involvement. 1- didn't remember to study the topic, 2- busy with baby (yup that is during class). 3-opps my scriptures must have fallen under my bed this week, I couldn't find them on the way to church.

Last week I challenged them all to a homework assignment with a reward of a homemade treat. Only 2 people earned it. (and I was one of them). Part of that is because very few people remembered. Maybe the church should call them to be active Gospel Doctrine students. That might increase their participation for a few weeks.

Anyways, the reason I am so dire on them is that most of the time I am one of them. And once year I promise myself to be prepared for all those great Sunday classes and for a month or two I really study for class every week. And then life happens and I loose my habit. Loosing good habits seem easier then getting rid of bad ones. With the move and whole life upheaval thing I have lost a lot of good habbits I have to find again. Maybe I should look Under the Hill. (don't get the joke? Habbit=hobbit)

So I guess this is time to think about regaining that habbit again, along with story time and teethies time for my children. Anybody who thinks moving is easy doesn't have a family and a business. :)

Have a good Sunday!

Another thing that fascinated with me about Superman is that I remember finding the original superman super cute- yeah I was 6!

It must be more then the baby face. It must be what the expression says about his heart and actions.

I remember a lot of people my age swooning over Aragon in Lord of the Rings. He was ok, but in many ways he was tragic- just plainly not thrilled with this route in life- but Superman he is my kind of hero!


Why is he called Superman?

Because he is super.
super-good, sweet , innocent
Super-hard working, long suffering, forgiving, loving
Super cute!! and after reading a few other blog type reviews I know I am not the only one.

I really love his goodness through and through and think that that is where part of women's fascination with him comes from. After all who wouldn't want a husband that good? After saving the world he would still remember to take out the trash.

I really enjoyed the movie, found it touching. I really liked that it didn't focus on fighting, but on saving people. And Super Man's interview with Louis Lane about her article was so well done.

A few things in the movie I would like to point out.
1930s styles where everywhere, wherever they thought they could get away to alluding to the time that the Superman comic first came out they did it. In clothing, set decor and the the like.

2-I felt sorry for Superman's Mom. He really needed to visit her after his little accident. After all she does deserve it.

3-What is it with all these men choosing women so completely wrong for them? Why does Lex Luther hang with the dumbest lady on earth? I mean when he talked about her shopping on the internet for fur coats I really wondered if she was capable of placing an online order. And then pairing Louis with the sweetness and goodness of Superman? Come on, Superman deserves someone as good hearted and innocent as he is.

Ok- I don't think I spoiled the movie for you- but go and see it. Then cheer with me for the hope they make another.
