A Blast from the past.....

 

So, I am stuck using the laptop these days, which means I only have access to a very narrow selection of our pictures. I feel a need to blog, so I found this picture from Christmas. Sort of fitting because it was taken in SLC, which is where we have been abiding for the past few weeks while our van is out of commision. (Oh, I guess a small explanation of how that happened would be appropriate. I rear-ended someone while I was driving to SLC to see my sister Mindy before she moved to CA. Yeah, it was just me and the kiddos... all five of them. Scary, but thankfully nobody was hurt.) Since then, we have been staying at Dallas' dad's apartment. (Which, by default, we have taken over. He is gone pretty much all the time, so I kind of feel like he is the one visiting us.) We have been having fun here, trying to enrich our kids, possibly out of guilt that they are missing their first and second week of school. I guess Salt lake is definitely not a bad city to be stranded in.

Builder Boy

Gabe has been building forts lately. Like, obsessively. Any box, blanket, car seat, etc he finds lying around is immediately snatched up for the cause. Here you see him tuckered out from the effort. I guess when you're three years old, it is all about the cool factor, not the comfort.
