And this is why you shouldn't give a four year old makeup as a gift.

Not the best picture, but you get the idea. Ally was given this "makeup kit" as a birthday gift from her best friend Madison. It's a totally cute, castle shaped case, chock full of "eyelash" (I guess this is what Ally calls eye makeup), nail polish, and lipstick. Ally, Katey, and her cousin Corena thought it seemed like a dandy idea to do themselves up like really spazzy streetwalkers. My SIL Tracy and I thought this was okay, that it would just wash right off, but several hours and a bath later, Katey still had traces of pink in her hair. Who's the ad wizard that came up with this one? (Josh, that was for you. Don't let me down.)

My other kids are pretty cute too. Here's Riley bouncing on Jeremiah's new moon shoes, and Jeremiah with his favorite person (well, other than me of course; when we pray and talk at night I always ask who loves him the most and he always says "you and Mimi").

I'm still working on my bad idea alarm. If I could somehow patent it, it would make me rich beyond my wildest dreams. Of course, if my brother had gotten off his behind and patented our first down projected onto the field brainstorm years ago, before some other jackass thought of it I wouldn't even be writing this blog. I'd be relaxing at our beach side bar in St. John, watching Rusty cook on the hibachi grill while we poured cold beer and frosty drinks to the natives (and ourselves!) and enjoying the ocean breeze. Thanks Josh.

Smooch is one smart boy--he knows who loves him. The pic of Pie makes her look way too old, DO something!!! The makeup, well, well. Is Katie's hair still pink? Believe I would have to send that kit on a long trip!!!
