Friday's Fabulous Five

1- I just took some banana bread out of the oven and the house smells delicious!

2- Currently whenever Caroline wants to do something, she states what she wants to do and then has a little conversation with herself..."Outside!? Ok....yes" "Einsteins? Ok...yes" "Puzzle? Ok...yes" It never gets old!

3- Miami, possibly Provo, New Hampshire, Michigan?.....will you all come visit? There are still places to hear from, but so far, the top choices. I am sure we will have a studio apartment, but we have a very cozy blowup mattress and y'all are welcome! The mail has never been so exciting.

4- We have been making a small fort in the living room and Caroline named it the "sleeping house", although that is far from what we do in the fort. So family, if you are ever over watching Caroline and she says "sleeping house", you'll know what to do!

5- April Fools' Day was kind of fun. I tried to find a good idea on line, and one idea was to put a raisin in the toothpaste so that it would look like a bug. So I did this right after I got home from work. Time came to brush our teeth and Adam asked if I had brushed. I fibbed and said yes, and hopped into bed. I laid there waiting for a reaction, he realized I hadn't brushed because I had just eaten a pound of animal crackers...but anyway, I hid my grin in the sheets, and tried to ignore his questioning. Then from the bathroom I hear this, "Oh sick, oh sick." Acting surprised.."what is it?" I asked. Adam: "You don't want to know"....moments later, "Did Caroline play with the toothpaste and put a raisin in it?" The tears were rolling down my cheeks by this point, I don't know why I thought it was so funny. We had a great laugh!!

and I must add a 6- We got a surprise visit from Corinne because she was in the neighborhood, it was very fun and Caroline was thrilled. (She even gave Corinne a tour of the sleeping house.)

Of course we'll visit...Caroline will need to see her parents periodically. Maybe she'll build us an extended version of the "sleeping house" at your new location. Time to save our pennies! Keep us posted on the exciting contents of your mailbox!

That is an awesome prank! I love it. I completely forgot April 1st this year, I got so busy. I'm glad that you also enjoy blanket cities. I'm 26 and I still love making them. Everything is more fun in them, playing games, eating dinner, watching a movie. It's the best.

When we were little we would make
tunnels out of couch cushions and put blankets over chairs and crawl through the tunnel. So much fun but a big mess for Gigi or my Aunt to clean up. I'll come and visit but like Amanda I hope you stay in Utah too.I know it is a great adventure for you but I like having my family close to do things with. But if you DO have to go out of state, I'll just have to visit all the time.

Okay young lady, I have been out of the loop for way too long!!! Where are you guys headed? Grad school? or just a change of scenery?

I love the prank too! I'm not a very good liar, so I would have had to bury my face in blankets as well!!!

I am so glad I came over and that Caroline woke up just in time! OH man, I just love her. If you go to Michigan it would be totally awesome because we could go to Chicago and visit Doug and Scott and stuff...but the other places sound like fun places to visit too!
