Flour Fun

For Family Home Evening I thought it would be fun to play the flour game (I was inspired to do this after I saw my sister in law Shanalee's post). We really had a lot of fun. Markie especially enjoyed sticking his face in the flour because he thought it tasted good. YUCK!

Markie trying to get the quarter.

I got the quarter!

We all got a little messy, but that was all part of the fun. During clean up Brett thought it would be fun to throw a handful of flour at me and start a flour fight. The fight went like this--Brett got me, I got him, Mark thought it looked like fun so he got me and then Brett got me again. I think I need a girl or two over here to be on my team, these boys are ganging up on me.

Me after my boys got me, I am a mess!

For only getting Brett once I think I did a pretty good job.

Let's Dance!

Brett and I have been asked to be in charge of a dance festival for our stake! I am so excited! We have been preparing for the dance festival for the past 3 months and Friday is the big night. The wards have been broken up into 4 groups and each of the groups have learned a dance and will be performing the dances on Friday. After the performance the stake will then open it up for a stake dance. Brett and I have been teaching our wards group the two step, it has been so great to have an excuse to go dancing with Brett. We used to go up to BYU-Idaho all the time to go dancing but since Mark and James came along we haven't gone. I really miss it. Anyway, as we were planning the dance festival it was kind of stressful and difficult at the beginning because I was trying to coordinate 10 different wards schedules as well as the 4 instructors schedules and do it all within 2 months (it took a month to find the teachers) but it is going to happen and it is going to be great. I have lived in the Iona Stake for 4 and 1/2 years and I have never heard about the stake having a dance. Coming from Utah where my stake would have 3-4 dances a year and there was some other stake doing a dance on the other weeks that my stake wasn't it made me sad that there weren't stake dances here. So when I was told that the stake was putting one together in conjunction with the dance festival, let's just say I have been on cloud 9 ever since. (I have recently found out that there is a tri-stake dance held on the 3rd Saturday of every month.) My one hope now is that everything goes well and the youth have fun.
