Jack's First Primary Talk

Jack gave his first talk in Primary last Sunday.  I asked Aaron if I could video tape it at church, but he said that would be tacky.  So we video'd him later at home.  It's 4 minutes of complete family chaos, just know that it went off without a hitch in Primary.

Also note;

1- The "other people" that Jack refers to- during singing time, the chorister had kids help her hold up pictures while they were singing.  Jack felt strongly that he needed "other people" to help him hold his pictures.

2-  I already know that I sound like a mean mom when I'm telling Jack to leave his jacket alone.  But I wasn't trying to be mean- and I didn't feel mean when I said it. 

3- I can't figure out how to edit the video, so there are 2 minutes of typical Grant family chaos at the end.  But make sure you tell Aaron what a great voice he has.

More fun in Primary-  Max was also spotlighted in Sr. Primary.  He filled this paper out himself at an activity  in January.


My favorite parts are;

"Some of my talents are-"  bowling  (we never go bowling)
"One thing I really don't like is-"  my brothers bug me  (yet, another proud moment)
and his birthday is wrong.

I think Aaron could be the primary chorister...or even the primary president! He would be great at doing sharing time and singing time!Cute video!

Preparing

(something like this... but worse) For the most part, I am new to all this parenting stuff. Yes, I have 2 bonus children that we've had full time since they were 7 & 10. But Aaron is a totally hands on dad. Doctor's appointments, parent-teacher conferences, permission to hang out with friends or have sleepovers... it's all him.
Of course, I help out when and where I can. Being at home when they get home from school. Driving to soccer and volleyball. Pushing for piano lessons. And just being generally supportive of the best dad in the world. (He totally is).
But back to what this is really about. This post is really about back to school shopping. And backpacks. And how this is my first time taking a child- my actual child- to buy a backpack for his first year at school. Maxwell starts kindergarten in August, and while I am mentally and emotionally preparing myself for that HUGE event that might make me cry tears of joy and sorrow... really what I am focused on is "t…

Snowball Cookies

[image]
It snowed this week. And though we don't have many family traditions, one that we started when we became a family was to make Snowball Cookies on the first snowy day of the season. And since we like cookies so much, we usually make them on other random, snowy days, too. They help ease my pain and anxiety over winter. You know-- carbs. 
There is nothing better than Snowball Cookies and hot chocolate on a snowy day.
Snowball Cookies 1 c. butter 1/2 c. confectioners sugar 2 tsp. vanilla 2 c. sifted flour 1 c. chocolate chips 1 c. chopped pecans (an option I don't use) Additional confectioners sugar (for rolling)
Beat butter and sugar until creamy. Add remaining ingredients, mix. Use a teaspoonful (I use a small ice cream scoop) of dough and roll into small ball. Bake at 375 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes. Cool slightly and roll in confectioners sugar. (I roll them twice.)

It Was A Pink Thanksgiving

The day we left for St. George, Charlie & Jack woke up with pink eye.

The conversation in my head went something like this:

Angel Me: Should we still go?
Devil Me: Of course you should still go! You can't cancel a trip like this! Everyone is looking forward to spending Thanksgiving in St. George. Go!
Angel Me: But pink eye is the most contagious disease in the world. If anyone so much as looks at them, they will end up with it. And we are staying with 2 other families.
Devil Me: Call the doctor, get an antibiotic for the boys, and keep them quarantined until they aren't contagious anymore. Everything will be fine.
Angel Me: Promise?
Devil Me: I promise. Now go call the doctor, you little worry wart, you.

So, we went to St. George and had a great time! And no one else got pink eye... until the day we came home. (Sorry Shauna.) And then Maddy woke up with it this morning. (Dang it!)Anyway, here is a quick jaunt down memory lane from our unconventional, non-traditional Thanksgiving i…
