*Today Lily has been playing with Haley's walkie talkies.  She keeps calling them "walkie turkeys" and it makes me smile.  Pretty much everything she does makes me smile. 

*I never think about getting movies at the library, but today I was in a movie mood and decided to look.  Surprisingly, they had 4 different kids ones that we've been wanting to see.  Score!  And for free!  I love libraries.

*Our neighbors across the street and best friends here moved on Sunday.  I am sad. 

*The missionaries came over yesterday, on their P-day, to play football with Britton at the park.  It made his day!  Jason and Haley ended up playing too and Lily and I were the cheerleaders.  Haley is super fast and scored two touchdowns breaking away from everyone.  At one point she said to me, "I didn't know football could be so fun".   Britton has his first football practice on Saturday.  He practically sleeps with all his gear he is so excited. 

*Jason is in Carlsbad, New Mexico for the next few days for work.  It's the first time he's had to be gone overnight since we moved down here when we didn't go with him.  I'm so glad that we get to see him pretty much everyday now. 

*A plumber came this morning to fix our kitchen sink.  It has been draining super slowly and has been near impossible to do the dishes.  I am so glad it works now. 

*Last Friday we went to a BBQ/pool party at some friend's house.  The kids didn't leave the pool all night.  Not even to eat.  It was so much fun and made me wish even more that we had a pool.  In their front yard, they had astro turf instead of grass.  That's one funny thing about this part of Texas--nobody has a green lawn unless it is fake.  :)

*I really miss the mountains and our cabin right now. 

*This morning when Haley woke up, Lily said to her, "Good morning beautiful Haley sister!"  She sure does love her big sister.
