Aren't you funny?

Here is yet another video of the cutest little girl in the world. We discovered this little, I don't know what to call it, thing, that Lena does. Now we just pester her constantly to do it and she is happy to do her little head shake for us!

Time for a high chair!

Needless to say, we headed out to "Babies R' Us" the next day to buy a high chair! I do have to hand to the "Safety 1st" company. That bouncer seat never budged when she leaned out that far!

I know. I KNOW!!! I am stinkin' it up with the whole family-blog-thingy. But after working like a dog wrapping caramel, bagging malt balls and dipping apples and pretzel sticks until the wee hours of the morning, I am ready to blog anew!

I am currently thinking up some ways to make money, moolah, greenbacks, schamolions this summer. One idea would require some start up money (anyone feeling generous?) The other, a lot of driving around the valley. Both would require childcare of some sort (ugh) and some serious time commitments on my part.

On the homefront, my laptop has been resurrected from the dead by Niels, master of all things I.T. Thank you, Niels! And I'm trying to get caught up on basic household stuff and organize some little home projects. I'm recruiting our fave babysitter, Miriam, pretty much against her will, to help me. It's okay though, it'll help her build character! Isn't that what our parents would tell us when they had some huge home project utilizing their free labor force, AKA their kids?

Mike has a secured two more classes for this term, so he is now teaching 4 classes at UVU. We're happy for experience he'll gain as a professor (he hates being called that, by the way) but we are still hoping for a permanent solution on the job front. It would help if folks would pay a decent wage here in Cheapskate Land.

Time to fold some laundry, vacuum a bit, take down the tree....
