AAA with a gun

And a ticket book. Look at that face of intimidation.

Repurposing the Spiderman sunglasses

We were out the door to a baptism Saturday night and Grayson came running down the hall with a few accessories. In our house we teach self reliance, so when I wouldn't help him find the lenses he popped out for the 100th time, he got creative all on his own and popped the other out as well. It was a win/win. He was now able to see great even in the evening.

And let me tell you, he worked those glasses (and his credit card) the whole night! My kids may look like Pollock's, but there's no taking that "Phillips Girl" outta them.

And if you look close you'll see his church shoes, complete with some stray tape from the morning's crafting. "Woody" boots. He loves them! They look much more manly than Benjamin's pink snow boots no? On the rare occasion (once a month) that we can't find both boots on Sunday morning, they're quickly replaced with the second favorite, frog boots. Nothing says reverence in sacrament like galoshes.

Family Furlough Day!

2 grandma's came to visit this last weekend, my mom and my grandma. The kids LOVED every minute of their visit!!! My Grandma Barbara is known for telling stories, whether you want to hear them or not and the beauty of this visit... my kids wanted to hear it all! She can move in as far as I'm concerned. Not only did she tell them stories, but read to them. As you can tell by the look on Grayson's face he was deep in thought the whole time;)

And Mom had a Valentine's Day activity for the kids.

And then they had to leave. We let Kennedy stay home from school on Monday to get every last second in. My mom took the day off teaching- just ask her about her allergies due to dead cats rotting in her classroom and her LAME administration and janitors who don't seem to care about it. So we named this past Monday, "Family Furlough Day". Has a nice ring to it and if the state can do it just because, so can we;)
