I saw this story last week and really love the picture. Talk about teamwork. And no one in the car was hurt (except for a few scratches). BMW gets an award for engineering on this one.
My kids always think they want to decorate gingerbread houses but it is always too complicated for us so when I saw this kit using rice crispy treats, I thought it would be perfect. It didn’t actually turn out as great as I thought because there was not enough marshmallow stuff for the rice crispies but they were fun and easy to decorate. I still have the mold for the house so we can do it again another time with my own recipe.
Nyah had her 3rd birthday. I think this is the first year she anticipated her birthday coming. She has loved Tangled so I put Rapunzel and Flynn on her cake. I think she would have loved a cake shaped like the doll but I have learned I have major limitations when it comes to cake decorations so I opted for a much easier design. And now she has a doll to play with. She said she wouldn’t turn 3 until she blew her candles out. I thought that was funny. We went to the Hyrum ambulance house for cake and ice cream because Dad got to work all day.
Nyah has been loving the movie Tangled so we dressed her up as Rapunzel this year. I made the braid out of a whole skein of yarn. She won the “longest hair” award along with another Rapunzel at the ward party. She is pretty cute dancing around with her long hair. I wasn’t sure how long it needed to be so it actually did drag a bit. While trick or treating, I held the end of it like she was a dog on a leash.
We helped the amateur radio club with Lotoja again this year but this year was quite a bit different. We went over to Montpelier Friday night and set up a bunch of radio and internet stuff at the park on Saturday morning. We were able to track the other radio people with APRS so we could follow the race. We also acted as a dispatch center and linked the other areas together. After all of the racers had gone through Montpelier we followed the tail end of the race in to Jackson. It was well after dark when we got done. That made for a really long day. The next day we got up early and headed back home so we could get the kids out of JaNae’s hair so she could get to church.
