This photo was taken right after a funeral. Eric was up on the stand during the meeting, and the boys didn't last longer than a few minutes before I felt they were being too disruptive. So I took them to the nursery and listened to the meeting from the Relief Society room next door.

Henrik was so tired tonight that he fell asleep before even eating his dinner.

Some great packing snow! The girls were making snowmen right after getting off the bus!

We took the van in for an oil change...and then needed some other things to get fixed. So, the boys and I hung out at McDonald's while we waited. The boys were thoroughly entertained with the touch-screen games and loved their lunch. We made it back to pick up the van, fill it up with gas, and get home just in time to get the girls from the bus stop.

LOVE the addition of all the girls' little sailboats on the bulletin board!
