Blood Pressure Cuffs Makes You Strong

I forgot a couple things in my last *few* posts. I took the 3 youngest to Walmart (that is rare indeed) to pick up some party stuff. While there we passed by the blood pressure station. Phillip jumps out of the cart and sticks his arms in. I helped him get both arms squeezed. Afterwards he jumped off the chair, admired his new muscles, and exclaimed that he now had Superman muscles. To demonstrate this he pushed the cart and Everett. Everett thought Phillip's muscles were quite admirable, he got both arms squeezed. I have a feeling we may not be able to pass by another blood pressure machine. They are magical indeed, bestowing Superman powers.

Wednesday evening the YW of our ward came to serve our family. They cleaned, shined, swept, and vacuumed our house. It was soooooo nice. Can you come next month too? The kids thought that was pretty awesome. Alia left her watch at our house. Saturday I noticed Phillip sporting a new watch. I was sure he stole it from someone. He was excited to wear it until I remembered that Alia lost her watch.

We all delivered cupcakes to Amelia's class at school. She was very excited to pass out her treat and even get to take the first bite. Phillip was making all the kids laugh with his silly antics. Everett wanted to share in the limelight with silly faces. Evelyn and Amelia stole the cuteness award. We opened some of the gifts we got her after dinner. She got a new scooter from Grandma and Grandpa Call, a memory game from Grandma Debbie, The Hedbandz game, a dinner question game, a knock-knock joke book, a Gelarti kit, a Friends Lego set, and a Snow Cone machine. I decided to get a real snow cone machine since it only cost a little bit more and would last a lot longer. Come over if you want some shaved ice! She tried out her scooter right away. 

Justin set up his hammock after the art party. Everyone enjoyed some time swinging in the hammock. That was fun. Now we are enduring a week of wind. Yesterday the wind was sustained at 30-40 mph. Today it is even worse, 40-50 mph sustained. We often get wind here but usually 20-30 mph with 50 mph gusts, rarely sustained. Our house is whistling and ghostly drafts are ruffling all our curtains.
