This week our Nephew Sheldon came to stay with us. This proved to be challenging at times. Makaila and Sheldon shall I say just seem to get on each others nerves once in a while. Well maybe not once in a while but the whole day Saturday. It makes me wonder how parents do it. Then I have to remind myself that they don't start out like this and you learn and grow as the children learn and grow. I will say that despite the children drama this week has been pretty fun! It has been a year and a half since I last saw Sheldon and when I first saw a picture of him I almost did not even recognize him. He has grown up so much. Here is a picture as to what I think of him as:Then I have to remind myself that it was two years ago that I last saw him and he isn't a baby anymore! My sister moved to Oregon shortly after he was born. Well maybe he was one or two years old at the time of the move and since the move I have seen him like 4 times. Here is a picture of what he looked like the last time I saw him: He is so cute!
We started this week out by having the missionaries come over. The Elders that are coming over are Elder Cruz and Elder Bieber. They are great missionaries and Makaila looked forward to their visit. They came last week for dinner and every time I talked to her on the phone before this week she had to ask if the missionaries were still coming over :) She seems to really like church! In the last three weeks she has wanted to go to the Temple and talks a lot about the Temple. Here is a picture of Makaila and Sheldon with the missionaries and then a picture of Makaila, Jake and I at Temple Square last week while seeing the Joseph Smith Movie:
On Friday Makaila and I went to get our hair cut. Makaila looks so cute with her hair cut! I don't have a picture of just me so you will have to see my hair cut in pictures with other people. :) Makaila surprised me in how much hair she wanted taken off but it looks super cute. Hopefully I am still alive after her mother finds out! Her mother knew that she was getting a hair cut but didn't know how much was being cut off. We tried to call her mother but she did not answer... I tried.. I did :)
The biggest thing that we did this weekend was...... Getting us new bikes for our birthday/anniversary gift! We are going to start riding bikes to work for two reasons.
We hope that everyone is doing well!
