It taste's salty!

I was having a meeting in my home the other morning. Jason was home and was "helping" out with the kids. I hear Zack and Taylor playing in the living room...I hear crinkling paper...I hear Zack say, "What kind of candy is this!?!"...I hear him say, "YUCK, it tastes salty!" By now Jason checks on them...I hear him laugh and gag at the same time. He comes into my meeting with the kids trailing behind him, holding a tampon (and the pretty green "candy" wrapper). Apparently they had discovered the "secret compartment" in my diaper bag were I hide my "special candy". LOL!!! At least it wasn't used ---GAG!!!

Good advice for New Years Resolutions

"I urge you to examine your life. Determine where you are and what you need to do to be the kind of person you want to be. Create inspiring, noble, and righteous goals that fire your imagination and create excitement in your heart. And then keep your eye on them. Work consistently towards achieving them."
--Elder Joseph B. Wirthlin

I like it!

On Christmas morning the kids came running into the living room to see if Santa had visited us. Sure enough, Santa came. He left Zack a bicycle video game that hooks up to the TV that you actually get on and peddle and steer to work the game. Anyway, Zack stopped dead in his tracks, looks at the bicycle and says,
"HEY! I did NOT ask Santa for this...but I LIKE it!"

He was even a good brother and shared with Baby Sister.


After we had opened all our presents on Christmas morning, we were sitting back looking at the overwhelming piles of toys. I said, " Wow! Zack, you must have been a really good boy...look at ALL the presents Santa brought you!!!" He looked at me with astonishment and said,
(Oh man, do I EVER remember!!!) HA-HA!
