Here are a few pictures. 4 to be exact. The first one is actually one I downloaded from the national weather channel in which it shows the current temperatures around the country. Take a look at Minnesota and the color the ENTIRE state is. OK. Then subtract 13 to factor in wind chill. Once you've figured that out, proceed to the following pictures.
"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails. I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp. I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children. I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden. I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder. I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived."

I painted a little train on Tyler's wall this past weekend. I think next time I get an impulse to do something like this again, I will make sure I have a good paint brush. I used Kamrie's little fake water coloring brush this time and it took a lot longer than I thought it would. It's like painting with a toothbrush! :) Anyway, here are the pictures. Don't look too close!

A couple of times this past week Kamrie has come up to me, put her hands on my cheeks, put her nose up to my nose, and in between gritted teeth she says,"Show me your angry eyebrows mom!" After I furrow my eyebrows, she then says in a happy voice,"Now show me your happy eyebrows". She will then say,"Let's try and keep our happy eyebrows on today, ok?" I have no idea where this came from (really! I don't!), but it has given us a few good laughs this week.

We had some crazy fun at our ward's trunk or treat party. Our costumes were the 4 phases of metamorphis of the butterfly. Ryan's the egg on a leaf, Tyler's the caterpillar, I'm the cocoon, and Kamrie's the butterfly. Not a great picture, but the ONLY one that all four of us are looking at the camera!
