Back to Normal - whatever that is...

Another cake done, and I am ready to take a break! It's been a whirlwind week for sure, and my poor house has suffered.

And whoever decided that rice krispy layers would be easier than cake was loony. It's no cheaper and no easier. The layer still needs frosted people!

Now I can focus on practicing something for our spring recital, which is in a couple weeks suprisingly. It's sneaking up on me, and I'm just hoping the kids are ready by then. It'd be nice if they would practice everyday like they are supposed to.

The boys had loads of fun with cousins this weekend, a full house as usual. It's wonderful when the family is so big that you have to eat in shifts and standing up becuase the table isn't big enough. And there are lots of adults to help with kids, so they all stayed pretty quiet at church. And while in the waiting room at the temple, I was so proud of all the kids. There were plenty of children there that the attendant had to shush several times, but all our bunch hardly made a peep. They were the best behaved, all the Willford cousins, and just sat quietly reading the
Friend magazines and watching the church videos. We did lose William a couple times while waiting for the happy couple to come out for pictures, he dashed in the door while other people were going in and went straight to the waiting room where he flirted with the attendants until we tracked him down. Then later he escaped after the huge group picture and Mark found him on the other side of the temple grounds! Crazy kid, he's super fast and tiny enough to be quite hard to see.

We have also decided that if his family wants to see us, they'll have to come here until Daniel is older. He cried for 3 of the 5 hours we were on the road last night. It's a 4 hour trip, but we had to keep stopping to feed him and then he'd refuse to eat, just to cry when we gave him up and got back on the road. He was constipated and had a tough morning today trying to clear that up. Which explains some of the fussy yesterday. But mostly he just isn't a fan of car seats and long drives.

All in all, it's just nice to be back, and just dealing with the normal chaos we're used to!
