Tonight was Parker's 1st Pinewood Derby competition. He had a great time getting his car ready. He had it all pictured out in his mind what he wanted it to look like. He was able to use the tools from Brother Spencer to shape his car, then he had to sand it, then he had to paint it. When it came down to the details he wanted to use the stickers he had in his Star Wars Book. I think it turned out really good. The last thing that needed to be added was weight, which daddy did right before the race.

It was time to listen to our prophet, Thomas S. Monson, and the church leaders speak to us during General Conference. It has become a tradition to have packets for each of the kids to complete while listening to conference, and to have treats to snack on. This year since it was close to Easter we had jellybeans and chocolate eggs. Even with all our preparation someone eventually gets bored, or falls asleep, or trys to sneak off, or starts goofing off! So I thought I would capture some of these moments *smile*
Daddy was the first to fall victim to the sleep bug (as usual) so he was the first to get picked on! He is currently modeling the 'jellybean in the ear' look *smile*

Sometimes even though you're tired of being inside, you don't have much choice. AND soooo here are a few things we did to entertain ourselves.
Mason and Lily liked watching movies in the laundry basket *smile*

We have been cooped up inside for toooo long, and the older boys (Oscar and Zachary) had enough. They rounded up all their guns, gear, and ammunition to have an airsoft war. It was FREEZING and raining outside, but they still went out there and had a blast! I must admit I was having fun standing at the window giggling at them, watching all their quorky antics!

Well I guess it is safe to say we got our fair share of snow and COLD this year. We always seemed to take advantage of the opportunities to play in the stuff too.
If you look really close you can see really neat shapes to the snow flakes! Some of them actually look like the ones we make ourselves for decorations.

Oscar, aka Otown, aka Lil O, decided for his Eagle Project to make Child Identification Cards. The cards would have a picture of the child, fingerprints, height, weight, hair and eye color, and a place for other pertinent information. His goal was to have these made for parents to have on hand for 72 hour kits and in case of an emergency. He worked hard to get the word out to all those family's in our stake, and he ended up having a good turnout.
He is an example of one of the ways he got word out. He made these and put them in the foyer on each side of the chapels in our stake. He also connected via email all the Relief Society presidents and Elder's Quorum presidents to announce in their wards.
Here is Oscar with our friend Josh Tuft the night before the project. Josh was so helpful with the technology side of things. He got him set up with WebCams, a color printer, and he agreed to come help out the day of. Here he is showing him how everything is going to work, THANK YOU JOSH!!!
I was very pleased with the way he had things organized and how it all came together. He did an AMAZING job! His goal has always been to complete his Eagle Project while 13 years old. He had his board of view April 6th the day before his 14th birthday! He is now and Eagle Scout! Great Job Oscar! We are all so very proud of you! *smile*
