cheesy grin with a combination of a scrunchy nose with it, like her big sisters, so cute.

A year or so ago, the kids made up a game on the trampoline. They put a little toddler scoot car on the trampoline and jumped around and the game was to jump but no not get touched by the toy car. For some reason, they decided to name the scoot car. They named him Kevin. He would get bounced off the trampoline and then I'd hear kid's crying "Kevin! Kevin! Someone help Kevin!" I had no idea who any neighbor kid named Kevin was, so went out to check on everyone's safety and there learned that Kevin was the toy car. Kinda funny, weird kids. Anyway, the name has stuck. And Kevin has found a new playmate in Natalie

So she had a good day. Her past birthdays... the Original "birth" day, then here she is in 2010 pretty close to her 1 year birthday (but that was back before I blogged regularly, so that is all we got), no b-day documentation when she was 2, but we've got the broken leg a week before, shy when she turned 3 and wearing the same dress as 3 when she turned 4... she still wears that dress... that would have been funny if I noticed it before, I could have had her wear it again today! She's seriously so little... can't believe she's going to be in kindergarten~

We had a great day cleaning the house, and I found it interesting... cause all the big kids were gone, so how is it that it went better with them than when I've got the older kids who should be and usually are my biggest and best helpers? I'm not sure, but these little helpers totally delivered. Joseph at work with Corey, Melodie had flute lesson and spent the day with grandparents, and Ethan's been gone at scout camp all week. I went to the store to get a present for Lily's birthday on Monday, and came home with some Little Debbie Cosmic Brownies to have on hand for a bribe to helpers. And it worked. I gave them all one brownie and said they could have another if they were my slaves for a half hour. "But slavery is wrong!" Ok, you're right, No slavery, how bout you guys do some service? And they worked hard for the extra brownie. Wes watched Natalie and the little girls while Abi and Hyrum were my shadows and we vacuumed and wiped counters and spiffied it all up. But I've had bribes before, so again, not sure what the difference was here.
