Hammy (my 4th child-- who's almost 7 years old) told me today, "If we had a gingerbread man, he could poop candy for us."
And here I was thinking how beneficial laying hens would be.
We may just need a gingerbread man too.

My kids love to play Conference Bingo while we listen to the sessions of conference.
This year I decided to also print these totally fun conference packets that I found on Sugardoodle.net. Usually they have a sheet or two copied from the Friend magazine to color.
I put together a conference bin for each child with the packet, a new toothbrush, a box of candy (only 26 cents each!) and a pencil and eraser.
(Biscuit doesn't get an eraser, of course, since she'd just pop it in her mouth.)
I also put two sheets of colored construction paper in each bin because the kids have been asking to weave paper ever since seeing one mysteriously show up in the Mitch the Fish preschool rhyme/color game.
It doesn't look like much, but I know they'll be thrilled when they wake up in the morning.
In between sessions on Saturday we are planning family magic show inspired by the April Friend magazine.

Today is my birthday. I slept in until after 8 am. Danny and the kids brought me breakfast in bed.
When I came downstairs I found this awesome birthday card on the wall.
We played Bunny Bingo in the afternoon and had a lesson about being a good sport. ;)

While getting ready for bed tonight, Tater (4 1/2 years) said to me, "Mommy, I can't stretch my eyeballs big like Pinkie."
"Tater, Pinkie's not real," I replied.
"Not real?! Why you say she not real??" he gasped.
"She's just pretend, not real," I answered.
"Wait... WHAT?? I seen her on the tv!"
Then he walked away whispering the whole thing to himself play-by-play.
