This is just a weird post-odds and ins of Myrup life. The first picture is Tyler and Marie I am not kidding I believe it was 30 something degrees outside..but Tyler wanted to have a real tea party. We always just pretend in Marie's set, I told him if he went outside and he jumped at the idea. So they are freezing their booties off..but they had a good time because they wanted to stay out there forever..but then Brandon called from school and he had an accident..and we had to get him. During computer I guess they have 11 minute timed tests, so he tried to hold it, but couldn't--poor guy.
Apparently when we did the fall carnival at Brandon's school-Tyler really wanted a rocket ship that was one of the activities we didn't do, because at the time he didn't tell us. So I looked online to see how I could make him something cool-and this is what I came up with. I used a piece of pvc pipe from our tee pee..wrap the paper around it, tape it, tape on paper tip..then they launch them by blowing hot air throw the PVC pipe..it's great until the tip is so worn out it's not air tight anymore. But I felt like a cool Mom that day.
Yesterday we celebrated Tyler's birthday at school. Because his falls during Thanksgiving week and we get the ENTIRE week off..why-please let me know..and tomorrow they are doing a Thanksgiving Day party at school. The school gave him this crow, a paper with his favorites and things he thinks are yucky. When the teacher was asking him-they asked him what he wanted to be when he grew up..this is what he says "work at Papa John's Pizza" Lately he's been asking me for an RV, I tell him when he's a teenager he's going to need a job to save money and when he has enough money he can buy his own. And how he'll lock the door so girls can't come in..and how he's going to work at Papa John's to save his money..the teachers surely had a laugh at that one..and the thing is we don't hardly buy pizza except Little Caesars..so I must have told him I worked there and he remembered.
Then Marie wanted a picture and Tyler told her to wear his crown..so sweet!
My parents mostly have wanted to see the work Eric has done in the garage, and I thought this is the perfect way to post a video. SO here it is..it looks sloppy because since we already have snow here, we just put as much stuff around the walls as we can so we can park 1 vehicle in the garage, and when Eric works on it he has to move the stuff every time. Poor guy-but I really want some garage space! That's why we bought a house with a 2 car garage! But when we moved in there was nothing-bare wood. He himself has put in insulation, sheet rock, taped and puttied-over the seems, sanded the excess, put some special rounded corner thing on the window, and primed the garage. On the ceiling and the first wall to the left were already finished with the house..he attempted to putty some of that falling tape off-but you know didn't really want to because it was added work-so the crappiest parts were already crappily done before we moved in. We don't really care what it looks like, Eric just wants it SEALED and that's the most important to him! I'm proud and I really want the shelving in and a functioning garage-but holy cow it has taken a LOT of time. He's had a co-worker help him a few times which is nice..but it's been 6 day weeks for a few months-he works out there after work and most of the day Saturday -but ALWAYS takes a break during BYU games..and I'm ready for the project to be over!!!
Also lately there's been a lot of joke telling, mostly Tyler and they NEVER make sense, so the past couple of days-Marie's been in on it too. I have NO clue what she's saying. But on the second joke in the video she says How something I say How, then she says because...something I don't know what-but when she says because I think it's so cute. Oh and she's got on a dress like ALWAYS..she mostly sleeps in dresses now too-she puts her pajamas on then wants a dress on top-never a dress up dress..just a cotton dress-but still that girl!
So today she's got a shirt to make the dress modest, a church dress that's 18 months-so too small, with Cinderella on top, then a cardigan that's PINK over that..plus white dress up princess shoes!
And Tyler's in the background, poor guy has a fever and has been laying there since 5:50am!
