Jonah won the "Super-sized-Bowl" of No Bake Cookies for his predicted score of 24-21, which was the closest to the actual score. John won a "Symphony" bar as a consolation prize for his predicted score of 36-46 , the furthest from the final score. We had a great evening together...but then, Good Food plus Good Friends (and a little Football) always equals Fun!!!

I had several errands today, and at the grocery store stop, Jonah said "Mom, I want a fruit-fro-up". "Fruit Frowup?" I asked. "No, a Fruit FRO-UP!", he replied. "Ohhh, a fruit roll-up!!!"
After we got home from all our harried errands and the baby was ready to blow a gasket, I put Kanyon back in his room for a nap, and came out to the living room where Micah was building blocks. "Whew, the baby was sure crying a lot today", I told him. "I know, that's why I want a different baby", he said. What? I couldn't believe that, so I said "Micah, you would miss the baby if he was gone." He said nothing. "What are you building?" I asked him. "Norick City" was his reply. He was building tall towers of blocks to replicate New York City!!!
Kids...they can be the worst part of my day, and they are also definitely the best! They make me want to pull my hair out (most of it has fallen out anyways), and they also make me laugh the hardest, smile the biggest, and love the most!

Micah, hoping for a fish (see all the crowds of people that ACTUALLY give up a Saturday morning to sit outside in the cold for a few hours around a hole in the ground!)
Jonah and Micah had a hard time just sitting by their hole the entire time. They ventured around, slid on their tummies and butts on a snow-covered hill, and Micah accidentally stepped in one of the holes in the pond. Luckily Josh (the Eagle Scout) knew just what to do! Unfortunately, none of our boys caught any fish this year. But, they all came home with prizes: a fishing patch, new hooks, a fish ruler, some magnets and stickers, and some sugary treats!

This year, he spent more time planning specifically how he wanted it to look. He helped Josh decide on a shape, and he helped with sanding it. He chose to paint it the colors of the NFL Patriots team: blue, red, and white.
The derby was so much better organized this year! When we arrived, they weighed his car and gave us a few extra weights so that everyone's cars were the same. Then they assigned him a number (which was #1!!!) and the scouts and their cars competed two at a time, using a double bracket system.
We had a lot of fun! Ammon did so well; he finished 5th of 13 racers. At the end, the leaders gave all the boys a mounted plaque for their cars to be placed on.
