Lucy and Brady have Lucy/Daddy Time on Friday, while Beanie is at school. They have a lot of fun and Lucy loves to go to Ikea where they get a toy and have lunch.

Ballet Class

Lucy started Ballet class this week. Soooooooooo cute!!! They do 15 minutes of tap and then 15 minutes of ballet and then 30 minutes of gym time. She absolutely loves it. She was beaming when we got her ballet shoes and she didn't want to take them off because she loved them so much. I finally got them off of her and then she had to hold them until class started :)

President Hinckley-Prophet

President Hinckley passed away last Sunday the 27th of January.  He will be dearly missed in every way.  He was the only prophet that I have known since being LDS.  I just can't believe that he is gone.  He is the most amazing man and I know that this is a happy time for him, because he can be back with his eternal companion, but for the rest of the world it is a great loss and he will be sorely missed.  His enthusiasm for the gospel and his zest for life were so inspiring.  He traveled to visit the saints in other countries than any other Prophet so far, and he oversaw more temples being built than any other prophet.  It's hard for me to imagine the church without him.  If you missed his funeral and wanted to see it go to and you can watch it there.  It was a very moving funeral.  So, that was my week: a lot of crying :)

Marry me!

While eating dinner Beanie told us how his best little friend at school, Annie, asked him to marry her. We asked him what he said and he said "I just said 'sure'". We all laughed, except for Lucy who hot this look on her face and then she proceeded to look at Beanie with those "girly" eyes and said "Beanie, you are going to marry me, right? Beanie, marry me." And then she put her little hand on his arm and repeated her little plea, to which Beanie responded "Lucy we can't. When you are older you will understand that we can't because you are my sister. Lucy looked quite devastated. He is the one boy she cannot live without :) Lucy still claims that they are getting married.

At the house!

This was Lucy posing at our house where the bathtub is going to go in the master bathroom. It was a beautiful sunny day and it was fun to be able to look around the house without freezing! Cute girl!

At Beanie's school

This is Lucy playing with her ponies while we wait for brother at school. Lucy and I usually sit outside of Beanie's class for about an hour. We try to extend it a little more every few days. Sometimes we have some setbacks and then we move forward. Lucy does amazing! Of course, we are surrounded by books and that is one her favorite things in the world to do; being read to. This week we were all pretty sick and Beanie missed four days of school, so hopefully this week will go well. I am sure it will :)
