Oh- and I put all 3 of them together by myself- well with the help of all 4 of my children, but not any from Chase. I enjoy putting stuff like this together- just not x3 all in one day!
I also caved and got new contact lenses this week. I was going to wait till i had student loans paid off this summer so i could use cash for whatever insurance didn't cover, but Sam has decided that yanking glasses off of my face is hilarious. So i used my credit card and got them. When I came home, Brad informed me that I looked weird without my glasses. Sam would let my hold him, but he wouldn't look directly at me, he would turn his head and peek at me out of the corner of his eye for several hours after i got home. Hannah then decided that I was just too pretty for him to look at now. Then as i was helping brad fix his bed for the night(he frequently takes the sheet of his mattress and the mattress off his bed to play), a whole 5 hours after i got my contacts, he says "mommy, do you remember when you had glasses?". I love being a mommy- most of the time.
Oh- and i was tagged= i am supposed to put up the 4th picture in the 4th file of pictures on my computer. It's pretty small like this- i need to crop it. It's the whole Thurston clan (and Scott's TV) before Tara got married, and before Sam and Kariah were born.

"What mom? I'm just looking for a snack!"
I wasted electricity for a little bit and left the fridge open for him while I finished putting all the pantry stuff away too. It was just easier this way.

Hannah gave her very first talk in primary this week. She showed our family picture and talked about family responsibilities. When it was her turn she did it all by herself, refusing to let anyone help her read the talk we had written together before church. She did a great job- it just would have been helpful if our microphone worked so we could hear her better over all the kids. (I am not sure how many kids are in junior primary, but i know total there are more than 230- with the majority of them being younger- 33 just in the ctr-5 age group that we help teach).

Brad's scar is still there on his head- but it has faded a lot in the 2 years since it was this:
Sam just finished his lunch and is feeling extremely satisfied! He had peas for the first time and loved them- finishing off the whole 4 ounce jar. And then for dessert he at another whole jar of bananas. At 8 months their is less than a 9 pound difference between him and Bekah. No wonder when he eats about the same amount for breakfast and diner too.

Hannah had fun with spirit week at school awhile back. I am pretty sure that wacky hair day was her favorite! we used straws to help hold her hair up.
Sam has been so busy scooting around and getting into everything. He has started pulling up to stuff and the other day i heard him sreaming in the hallway. I ran to him cause i thought he had once again fallen and bumped his head on the floor, instead I found this:
