Friday night excitment

I wanted to take a picture to show how Le Anne has designed the girls new room nearly single handed . The amazing quilts, the fun IKEA lights for Kaia's birthday, and the poster pictures she gave us a few years ago. Sierra is wearing a new school outfit Gram bought her. I'm not sure what is up with the triangles. Sierra made them a while back. Kinda reminds me of a person Lydia was telling us about who filled her room with triangles, even sleeping with a few over her eyes. I won't let it go that far :). We are looking for bunk beds on craigslist, but if we don't find any then our plan is to stack food storage under their beds and hide it with a dust ruffle.
Here we are making pineapple-zucchini bread in our new kitchen. There are plenty of things I'd like to change about this kitchen if I owned it, but I don't so I don't worry about a thing. It is great.
Adam is reading "The Lion's Paw" to Sierra right now. Kaia is jumping up and down, asking for more food. I'm ready to collapse in a heap because I've spent the last several hours cleaning and putting away laundry. In no time at all, I'll have to do it all over again. I found some notes from a religion class I took at BYU. I think the following information is very interesting:
"Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children...And unto Adam he said...cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life" (Genesis 3:16-17). Professor Draper said that the words "sorrow" have different translations as applied to Eve and Adam. Eve: sorrow=etzwa (to toil, back breaking labor over and over again): Eve's greatest work will be in conception, her life, soul will be put into the raising of children. Adam: sorrow=etzev (back breaking labor, to work all the days of his life): Adam's greatest work is providing food for Eve and all the children. Eve doesn't have time for both etzwah and etzev.
I've always told the kids Adam has to go to work to make money so we can buy food. Who knew this was in accordance with ancient Hebrew?
Here are a few recent videos:

I stopped recording right before Tristan shook his hands and said "All done!". Maybe you are wondering why he is eating cheese along with his morning bowl of cereal. Don't judge me. He started screaming for cheese when I opened the fridge to get milk and I caved.

Oh, I totally judge you. :) This morning Josh started screaming for meatballs after I got the milk out. I have no idea why - the meatballs are in the freezer in the garage and we haven't touched them for a month. The only reason I didn't cave was because it was time to go to church!
