Sophie had early out all week, so she wanted to have a movie day with her friends. We called them all over, and they watched Tinkerbell's new movie. There was a lot of giggling and fun.

This is my latest project. I am going to make drapes for the family room. Wayne surprised me with a fabulous new sewing machine a few weeks ago, so now I get to make drapes for this room! I will update with a photo as soon as they are finished. I am hoping this week.
I don't know what the deal is with the lighting. Maybe I didn't have my flash on, but here are some curtains I made without any sewing. It is all just fabric that has been tucked, and I love it.
So... I know I have been promising this to you for a long time now dad... here goes. On Sept 21, vandals let the mink loose from the mink farm right down the street from us. They announced this at church in sacrament, my friend Holly and I thought we had better check it out. We left church, and came home to find one in her back yard. It was not a fighter, and we caught it easily by putting a bucket over it. They we went to my house, but didn't find anything. We went back to church and when it was over, I went back to my house, and there was one sitting on my porch. I yelled for the kids to get away, and called the neighbor. Mike, Wendy, and I chased the thing all over two yards for about 10 minutes, before we were finally able to catch it. It was fast and feisty! I wish you could have seen us all running in our church clothes. I am sure it was a sight! After I told her what was going on, my mom called the news, and they came out and interviewed us. Of course the clip they used was of me acting like a freak, when I had a normal conversation with them before, but what do you expect? Here it is: http://www.ksl.com/?nid=148&sid=4320526
My mom told my dad about it, and he came out to see the action. I thought he just wanted to watch, but was surprised when he opened his trunk, and low and behold... there was a mink catching kit. It consisted of gloves, a grabber stick, and 2 cages. I knew he wanted to get in on the action. My dad's the best!
So... Conrad is sick, and he got up last night to go potty. He was really out of it, and missed the potty. Wayne changed his pajama bottoms. This morning when he got up, he said, "Mommy, those pajama pants are magic! They changed to these ones in the night!" I asked him if he remembered, changing, and he didn't. He is a funny kid. I hope he feels better soon.
We love The Witches!!!
