Five on Friday

1. The end of Daylight Saving Time has meant early mornings, grumpy kids, early naps, and sucker bribes to do things that are basically routine around here (i.e., getting Peyton in the running stroller without her throwing the world's largest fit). Benjamin Franklin, we are not friends!

2. Tuesday afternoon I decided to live on the wild side - I drove all the way from American Fork to Spanish Fork with the gas light on after a trip to the Wood Connection. I wanted to fill up at Costco and I was 99.9% sure we could make it (we did). It was not the most relaxing drive and I'm not sure it was worth whatever I saved, but at least this story has a happy ending!

3. Corbyn drew his first family portrait this week - in dry erase marker on our bathroom mirror. (Look for the 4 circles.) I was one proud mamma especially since I have been trying to get him to draw something, anything for months now! I think joy school is paying off!

4. Yesterday Corbyn came home from joy school with an Indian headdress he had made while learning about the letter I. Apparently the boys wanted nothing to do with them, but Peyton wore it for a good hour. Just call her little chief!

5. Last night I made Slow Cooker Refried Beans for dinner group. I was excited because it was my first time making something from dry beans, like ever! I wish I could say I loved them, but I thought they were just meh.

Definitely an artist in the making! Glad you got a pic of the family.

Peyton in the feathers...what can I say????? Too cute for words!
