Hello! We had a busy week. Arwen's friends, Kyle, Jake, and Kristen came over to play all day Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. My house is still a mess, but they sure had fun playing games, doing crafts, and playing outside--that and eating--boy they suer had lots of snacks!!! Tuesday was Enrichment which was fun because it was a potluck. Friday, Aaron went to work early so he could come home early and we could go to the ward campout. It was up by Mount Hood. It was a realy pretty place. Right in the backyard of our camp spot was a huge lake. Arwen loved to just wander down and throw rocks into it (and people loved to wander up to us and make sure we knew where our little girl was!!). There was a really fun fireside thing on friday nigh with lots of games and songs. Arwen had a blast. Then we roasted marshmallows and had smores with the ward. We all slpet good--both kids ended up on our li! ttle bed and kicked me off to Arwen's bed. Man, she should have told us her bed was FREEZING!! We had a yummy breakfast with the ward then everyone played and swam in the Lake. We packed up and went a few miles away with some friends to the Alpine slides. They watched out kids while we went down and then we watched their kids. It was really fun minus the little kid who went in the fast lane and went so SLOW the whole way down. He slowed way down, so his dad did, and the Aaron did, so I did, and the guy behind me did, but the guy behind him did now and rammed the guy behind me who rammed me HARD. His dumb little cart came up onto mine and slammed right in my back. OUCH. Anyways, the ski lift up was really pretty and fun! It was a really fun, dirty weekend. Church was great. I got to sub in nursery today. There are like 22 kids in our wards nursery. Man, those poor full time leaders! It sure! does wear you out!!

Noah fell asleep at church and was laying on the bench. Arwen went to him and rubbed his head and kissed him and sang him her new favorite lullabye, "the moment I saw you, I wanted to hold you and keep you warm on a cold grey morn. The moment I held you, I wanted to kiss you and welcome you here on the day you were born." Then like 2 minutes later she was throwing a tantrum and I had to run her out!

Aaron was laying on the floor and Arwen was jumping all over his stomach and chest. Aaron was moaning and groaning and complaining and Arwen kind of stopped and said, "What's he talking about?" and then kept jumping.

She woke up this morning and said, "Come on Sar, let's go down and have breakfast."

Noah loves to just scoot around and play with toys. He loves fruit snacks, like Arwen and loves chocolate!!

He had a great time rolling in the dirt and eating rocks this weekend. He also loved drinking the remainder of Arwen's hot chocolate!

Love, NASA
