So the other day Mauri and I were giving her doll a bath and out of the total blue she said: " Mom esserday I pinched Tristan's Peanuts." Ha Ha ok so what happened is this... Tristan is our nephew ( Glendon's sister's little boy who is five). Tristan was visiting this summer and he and Mauri were sitting at the counter eating lunch and Tristan said that he needed to use the bathroom. Mauri was like "Oh I help you". So she goes in to the bathroom and he puts the toilet seat up. Well our ever helpful Mauri was like "oh not like that" and put the toilet seat down, yep the toilet seat smashed down right on his little member (Ouch,so sorry Tristan). Anyway he cried but then was ok and they were still friends. I just thought it was funny ( I am laughing even as I type this) that she thought of that after several months. Oh my gosh she cracks me up everyday, Dang I love that little Mauri!!!!!
Erica's boyfriend is Casey. Mauri absolutely LOVES LOVES Casey!!! Anytime we are at my mom's house Mar is always playing with Er and Casey. Er and Casey are so SWEET to play with her. There is a primary song called Happy Family ( I love mommy she loves me... you get the idea) Whenever we sing that song Mauri always adds Casey to the song. The other night Mar woke up in the night crying. I went in to her room and laid down with her and she was all like I want my Casey. She is so stinkin cute!!!!! Here are some pictures of Casey reading Mauri a story.
A few weeks ago Me Glendon, Amber and Ry, Casey and Er, Myke, and my father in law Dale went out shooting! We had way fun YAY! We shot shot guns, 22 and hand guns. We had a really great time! I love spending time with my family. We need to go shooting again before it gets too cold.
Nando was a foreign exchange student when Glendon was a senior in high school. Nando is from Brazil. He and Glendon are still very close, Glendon went to Brazil for a month when he graduated high school. We love when Nando comes to visit. This time he brought a friend, her name is Gabriella (we all called her Gabs) she is so darling. Mauri loved spending time with them. We went to Park City and we had a blast!! I will need to get more pics from Nando cause some of my pics came out blurry because there was a spot on my camera. Any way here are some pics that are non blurry from when Nando was here.
Here are some pictures of when we went Rock Climbing with my work ( I work two days a week at a Dr office, It's very fun) WE had a great time rock climbing! I have not been rock climbing since I was in young womens. I really am not a big fan of heights but I was like this will not be scary cause I have a harness. As I was almost to the top I realized that I really did not know how to get the heck down (fine times to realize this. It was at this point that I started to get very nervous. After calling down to Glendon he told me how to get back down, and man was I glad to be back on the ground.
Glendon and I had a blast, I didn't even drop him when I was belaying him!!

So for about the last month Mauri's goal in life has been to convince me to let her pee on the lawn. She will ask me at least three times a week, as she is pulling her pants down if she can pee on the lawn. So I tell her that she can not pee on the lawn, that girls pee in the toilet. Well yesterday her dream came true. NO, I did not give her permission to pee on the lawn. She stared to pull down her pants and then she asked me if she could please pee on the lawn, just as she actually started peeing on the sidewalk! When she got done she said, "yeah, girls can pee on the lawn too mom!" Oh my gosh she is so funny! She totally makes me laugh everyday! I love that little girl so dang much. And actually I am a little jealous of her ability to pee on the lawn. Because for anyone who has ever gone camping with me, knows that I have to have a toilet to pee in. I HAVE to camp in a spot that has bathrooms, or I can't go! I have never been able to "pee in the bushes" when we are camping. You Go Mar!!!
So this past Sunday at church, I took Mauri on one of our usual bathroom trips. She likes to be in the stall all herself so I was standing out side of the stall by the bathroom sink and step stool. Mauri asked if I was still there and I was like "Yeah Mar I am right here" I took one of my legs and stuck it between the step stool and the garbage, so that my foot would go underneath the stall. So here I am in my tall church shoes standing on one foot, when all of the sudden out of nowhere the foot I was standing on totally gave way!!!! Yeah so I totally fell on my back in the freakin church bathroom floor! I was totally sprawled all over the floor. I layed there for a sec and started cracking up, very relieved that no one was in the bathroom to see my major wipeout! Goodnight Nurse!

I sometimes go to nursery with Mauri during Sunday school before I go to Young Womens. Well yesterday we we playing in nursery and the leaders said that it was clean up time. So we all started cleaning up while singing the "Clean Up" song ( which is more annoying than it is helpful). Mar was doing a great job cleaning up, she was picking up a lot of toys. Mauri noticed that this little girl still had a toy in her hand so Mar took it from her to put in the toy box. Well this other little girl go upset and hit Mar (Mauri, suprisingly did not her back, which is a major shocker). Mar started crying and threw herself on the floor. By the time I made it to her she got up and sprang for the door. She opened that door so fast and started bookin it down the dang hall, crying all the while. And here I am in my ever so tall church shoes so it's not like I could actually run after her. When I finally came to she was clear on the other side of the dang church sulking in a corner. People were politely laughing at the drama fest. Anywho, I told her that I was proud that she did such a great job picking up the toys in nursery but that the other girl didn't know that Mar was picking the toys up. She cracks me up every single day. Thank goodness my husband came at that time and she was able to go back to nursery.
