There was a cute little book that went with the turtles, so I read that to them a few times.
Since it was sort of close to Sareny's birthday, and since we wanted to see her open her presents, we had a little pre-birthday party.
Sareny loves jump roping at school during recess, so we got her two jump ropes. A big long one that has to be turned by two people, and another for just her by herself. It took her a couple of weeks to master that one, but she did it. All weekend though, we had to turn the big long one so she could jump 24/7. It got to where we tied one end to the door knob so only one person would have to stand and turn.
We also gave her some "Twinkle Toes" boots (that girl loves boots!) where the toes have little sparkly lights that light up when you walk. She would hardly take them off all weekend. You can see them in the above picutre. If she did take them off, then Fin would run and put them on. She loved them too.
Hillari was in charge of a Ward freezer meal extravaganza, so Saturday morning we had over 20 women at her house making freezer meals. It was kind of fun, but tons of work. Hillari worked hard for several days chopping and doing some of the prep work. I got to meet some of the ladies from her Ward, and I got to make freezer meals too!
We did some fun things like the paddle boats on the lake near their home, and we went to the sports bar and grill to watch BYU play, but I don't have any pictures of those activities. On Sunday we went to Church with them and then had to head home.
