I captured some shots of Kyle giving the kids Saturday morning boxing lessons. Tyler was a natural and Alexa was spazzy. She just wanted to push the punching bag back as far as it would go and then it would basically knock her over as it came back.
Alexa asked to share her testimony in sacrament meeting this month! It was very sweet and she talked about how much Jesus loves us. Then she built a podium out of boxes at our house and she and Tyler shared their testimonies all week. One testimony I overheard was "I will get all the bad guys so I can be like Jesus. He taught me to be nice and helpful. In the name of Jesus Christ, amen."
I spent the last weekend of the month in Vegas for a work conference. It was a long and exhausting weekend, but we did get to see Tournament of Kings at Excalibur and we were asked to perform in a work talent show as members of Blue Man Group. I was very glad not to go into labor while away from home!
Lastly, some quotes to remember...
Alexa loves making up songs--it's been a cute thing she and Kyle do together a lot. This is one I overheard the other day that was directed at Tyler (to the tune of "Everything is awesome" from the Lego movie)--"Everything is awesome....everything is cool when you have me as a sister!"
Tyler (said with no emotion and a completely straight face): I already know that. Eat your food.
Tyler: For squirrels!
Leaving the doctor's office...
Tyler: Where's the baby?
Me: In my belly.
Tyler: Ugh, still?! Why won't it come out?! I thought the doctor was going to get it out?
Me: Let's get horses and name them all Spanish names.
Alexa: Yeah, like taco!
A mandatory selfie on my date night with the kids (tacos and bowling):
And silly kids who were freezing cold, but really, really wanted smoothies:
I did another interview with the kids to ask questions about what they like and want to be when they grow up, etc. Here's the 2016 version!
