Mondays Muttered Mumblings

Leaving the house at 8:30 on Sunday Mornings with everyone dressed in church clothes and fed is killing me.

Yesterday Adorable Hubby requested Baked Beans for dinner. I wasn't up to making them so #2 took over. I began suggesting a list of ingredients he should include. #2 rolled his eyes at me and said, "Mom, I've watched enough Rachel Ray to know how to make baked beans!" Thanks Rachel...I think.

Today we all played Hookey from life and went up to the open house for the new Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. As we pulled off the freeway Adorable Hubby told #1 he needed to turn right at the light. "Yeah, but what if you're left-handed?" Said 3# with a smirky little grin. The Temple is beautiful, and what a delight to spend the whole day with my Adorable Hubby and amazing sons.

I'm sure it's safe to say that skinny jeans were not designed with my err... Goddess? body type in mind. This morning however, I saw walking talking evidence that you can actually be to skinny for skinny jeans. Poor little thing looked like a Levi Strauss clad stork.

And finally thanks to some awards given me by some sweet blogging friends.

A Mahvelous Monday to you.

Wonderful ! It must have been freezing with all that snow...Brrrr!

Okay, I cant remember what it was really like when I went to the snow as a baby but I'm pretty sure it wasn't short sleeve weather! All that coldness and #4 is in his sleeves.

Sorry, I cant even remember what else I was going to say, that has just blown me away.

I think it's lovely when the kids get old enough to help with the cooking. My oldest asks me if he can help with dinner just about every day.
Your littlest boys sure look cold in that picture!

So much in this post to comment on!

Wahoo for mini chefs!
Prettiness of the scale!
Are you people nuts with your wardrobe choices?
And check your mail, I'm sending heat immediately!

Stopping by from Blog is my Co-pilot.

Love the picture— kind of reminds me of an ice castle.

Darn, I forgot about the temple open house, I'll bet it was beautiful.

For those of you in Utah, we just got on line that morning and made reservations to tour the temple, I don't think they're that busy during the day.

For those of you gasping at the wardrobe choices, we had to get in the car and drive from where the shuttle buses ran us back and forth up to the grounds for a picture. The rest of the time we were in buildings or heated tents.

#4 had a jacket in the car which was 10 feet away, he just wanted to look snazzy for the picture.

I'm excited to go to the open house---loved your pictures of it.

Thanks for your comment on my blog-and I must know: are there any twins or other wise multiple births among your many sons?
