You Are a Banana

You are mellow, easy going, and a total softie on the inside.

People find it really easy to get along with you. You suit most tastes.

And while you're very sweet, you're not boring or ordinary.

You have an attraction to the exotic, and you could show up anywhere... doing almost anything!

You are spirited, energetic, and a total kick to be around.

You're also quite funny. Your sense of humor is on the goofy side, and it fits you well.

I'll have to admit this past week has been extremely difficult on me as a mom. I have struggled being positive and staying on top of anything to do with my house. I feel exhausted! I really want to sleep thru the night. Madilynne got sick on the Monday after her birthday with violent vomiting for Dad in the middle of the night (while I was at work). She then proceeded to have episode after episode of diarrhea for Mom. Mason didn't feel good and Mom was nauseated. Needless to say, the highlight of the day was when Dad came home. Mom had only slept two hours in the last 36 hours (not highly recommended). Dad took Mitchell and Madilynne out to feed our resident ducks. They seem to enjoy the pond and the free food. The kids had a ball and honestly, it is nice not to have to go to the park to feed the ducks. The simple gifts in life our right in front of us. We just need to be awake and pay attention to them.

A Day Out With Thomas - 2008

The excitement filled the air! Can you tell?I know it was expensive, but well worth the smiles!
We had a quick trip on a crew car and it went really fast.
Besides being Dad for the day, Paul caught a drunk driver on the way up to Heber and a shop lifter who had felony charges out for her arrest!
Way to go Dad!

Madilynne loved the train ride and choo-chooed all the way. She also enjoyed petting the "Neeeehs" (mini horses) with her Daddy.

The weather was a little glummy at first with mild sprinkles, but quickly changed to sunny warm skies for about two hours. Just enough time to see all the sites, get Thomas the Train Tattoos, see the magician, play with the train table sets, see the Lego Train Land, and wave at Sir Topham Hat. All-in-all, it was a fabulous Memorial Day for the Scott Family.


New friends are found in our yard and "Little Miss Madilynne" had no fear!

Mitchell Moments!

Morgan: " My yard is trying to recover from not being watered for so long. I am trying the nurse it back."

Mitchell: "Ha, ha, ha......that's funny......Nurse. Hey Mom, did you hear that.....Morgan said he was nursing his grass......Ha, Hah!"


Mom Said, "Mitchell, lets learn how to spell tree. T. R. .."

Mitchell Said, " No Mom, I want to learn how to spell micropachecephalosaurus! It has 23 letters and was the smallest dinosaur during the Jurassic Period."

Mom was speechless.


Paul was talking about getting "goose bumps" and Mitchell was trying to figure it out. Paul explained that they are the little bumps you get on your body when you are cold. Mitchell looked very concerned and in the most innocent face asked his dad, "Does that mean I am going to grow feathers next?"
