Madison teaches the Grass plates

Tonight during scripture study Kerry asked the girls if they new why Nephi and his brothers went back to Jerusalam. Madison did a wonderful job at telling us a story that sounded somewhat like this.
"Nephi and his brotheres went to Jerusalam and got all of there gold and took the gold to the bad man and asked him to trade it for the Grass plates. "
Kerry interjected here and said "you mean the Brass plates"
Madison quickly comes back and says very boldly "no the grass plates"
Almost as if Dad was so silly to think that it could be the Brass plates.

Needless to say we learned what brass plates are tonight.

Ashley on Sick Sunday

As all the kids were home sick Yesterday Ashley couldn't find a bed that was as comfortable as Brians. Even though I was sick too I couldn't help but grab the camera and take a picture. She took a 2 hour nap in here. When I took the picture she was snoring. She will probably laugh when she sees this cause she had no clue I took it.

Lexis Quotes of the Day

We were having family night the other night and Kerry asked the kids where the tithing goes too. Lexi quickly responded. "to the bank"
With Kerry being in the Bishopbric she sometimes gets to go with him when he takes the tithing to the bank. So she thinks thats were it ends.
We had a fun time teaching our kids about tithing.

Yesterday all the kids were home sick and Lexi laying in my bed says
" I don't feel good, can I get my ears peirced"
I dont know how those two things go together but I just laughed at her.

We sure do love Lexi
