Hi! Let's see....Monday, for part of family home evening we got to go to Sweet Tomatoes for free (Thanks Scott!!!) Poor little Noah was sick and wouldn't touch anything but a little blueberry muffin. Tuesday I had enrichment. We did a service exchange. I ended up getting a homemade meal and I gave some hats (the kind you made for us at Christmas Marsha). Everyone loved them and came up to me afterwards amazed that I could knit, (ha ha!!!) and wanting some for their kids. Wednesday Aaron took Arwen to Scouts with him so I had sick little Noah to myself. The poor kid ran a fever of 104 all
week! Thursday I went to a pampered Chef Party (for 30 minutes cause I had sick little boy with me again). It was fun while I was there. I took Arwen to my Young Men’s meeting and she didn’t want to be there so we had to leave early. It was cute though. “Come on Dad let’s go play.” Then we took the kids to the movies because it was bring 3 cans and see a free movie night. I wanted Aaron to see Just Like Heaven (I'd already seen it with a friend and loved it!) but we couldn't cause it was a new movie. So we got our tickets for something else and still went to that movie. Noah was bad yet again, and I spent half the movie in the hall till he fell asleep and saw the end of the movie. Aaron really liked it! Friday, Aaron took the day off and we drove up to Seattle to see Joseph. While waiting to meet Joseph, we went to the Pike Fish Market. It was really fun! Arwen kept whining cause it was so stinky.

We got some strange mushrooms that’ll be fun to cook up, a lobster mushroom and some chanterelles. She got real excited when we stopped at Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory and she got to pick a treat. A guy working there wanted to give Arwen some caramel he was making, but it was too hot. Then we walked around the space needle area and found Joseph. We went to the top of the space needle and got to look at the city. It was so cool! Noah, who I think was finally over his cold and perfect all day started to scream. Then he started grinding his teeth sooooo loud. It was driving me crazy. Finally I stuck my finget in his mouth to make him stop and guess what I found--his first molar bleeding through. Poor kid! Next we went to the restaurant on top of the space needle. We had seats right by the window. The restaurant slowly spun in a circle while you ate so you eventually got to see the whole city. We were there during sunset. It was beautiful. Don't worry--Noah was still screaming and whining during all of this. WE took turns walking him while we waited for our food (It was a pretty fancy restaurant,
but luckily it was kind of loud, so we didn't bug too many people I think.) Finally Uncle Joseph took Noah and got him to sleep in about 30 seconds. We were then able to enjoy our meal in silence (well minus a screaming baby!) Aaron had some seafood mix thing, I had seared ahi tuna and Joseph got duck. They were all really yummy. Then we had cheese cake and lava cake for dessert. It was so fun! Thanks again Jospeh!!! We had a blast. Sarah mentioned the view was awesome, if you ever go make reservations for an hour or so before sunset like we did, it was clear day and awesome sunset. And the city lights were beautiful. Arwen sure had a great time playing with her uncle Jophes! Saturday we enjoyed another meal at sweet tomatoes (thanks Scott!) and I went to Women's conf. that night. It was great!

She loves lipstick and lipgloss. She always says, "Can I have more lips." Then yesterday I gave her a kiss and she gave me a sad look and said, "You kissed my lips off myself." So I had to give her more.
She still crawls into bed with us too much. Last night I said, "Don't kick me tonight Arwen." She said, "Mom, I'm not even touching yourself." She says yourself, myself and his-self all the time and never uses them correctly. It's so funny!

HE can now sit up by himself and he's starting to pull himself up on toys and stuff.
He loves the bath!!! He freaks out when I try and get him undressed to get him in. He wiggles so much! Then when it’s time to get out, he screams like he's dying a painful death! We gave Noah his first haircut this week. We buzzed it. It's pretty cute, minus the few hairs that we missed! We have a silly little bald again!

Love, NASA

The space needle restaurant is so neat! I'm jealous you guys got to eat there. Did you get to check out the Seattle Underground at all? It has a pretty interesting history, but I think you have to go on a paid tour to see any of it. Bummer.

No, I’ve heard it was cool, but I’m not a big fan of paid tours. I’m more a fan of Vasco Caves type tours, the self guided covert type. We didn’t have time this visit anyhow. I’m sure I’ll succumb in the future though.
