Leif had dental work. I always enjoy a huge belly laugh when I see him with a numbed mouth! So Funny!

As you can see the boys were thrilled to see Grandpa and Grandma Hunt. Caleb ran out to greet them saying, "Hunt! Hunt!"

Grandpa read Jakob's homemade Jet book with him. He Loved that! Prayer and scriptures together before bed was a sweet moment as well!

NieNie's Job Balls Idea: LOVE IT!

I read NieNie's Job Balls post this morning and I Love the idea! I'm going to try it out. It is similar to our "papers" idea. I'm not sure I even blogged about it, but it worked very well. I just want to change it up a bit. Our papers idea was a plan to get Jakob to do things the very first time we asked him, without saying ANYTHING, it was a goal to hear "Okay Mom" instead of "uuggphh BUT I..."  I had written a few rewards on slips of paper (extra Wii, Computer, Movie, Later bedtime, etc.) Randomly when I caught Jakob following directions the first time I told him he could choose a paper. He LOVES it! But it's gotten to the point that he says, "Okay!" and then under his breath we hear, "so I can get a paper."  I'm thinking it's time for a change and I'm going to try this idea from Stephanie.


Job Balls:
"Asking my little children nicely to do things around the house wasn't cutting it anymore. I needed something genius. Something that would work. Something down right fun. So I came up with a plan. It had to do with colorful balls. And it had to work. I wrote jobs down on the 50 soft golf ball sized balls. I have to admit coming up with 50 jobs became hard...after about the 25th one I was writing jobs such as:  "hug sister" or "pick up 10 strands of Jimmy hair on the couch.  I am making a tally of all the jobs done, and whoever has the most tallies, gets to pick out a treat.  Works for them, works for me. Hopefully this will last longer than a few weeks. "  - NieNie

Lunch Box Lunches and Lunch Box Notes Ideas

Going Gluten Free makes breakfast and lunch from home a requirement. I don't mind at all. It gives me another way to help my kids feel better during the day as well as a way for me to take a minute and show a little extra Mama Love. 

So here's where you come in:) Some of you have posted some great healthy sack lunches and lunch box note ideas on you blogs in the past. But I didn't need them at the time. Now I need them. Can you send me your ideas!?  I look forward to hearing from you!!

PS. Don't worry if your ideas aren't gluten free! I will do the conversion, No Worries!

Just Thinking

I love my Foto Friday post so much, I hate to move on.:) Hence the link to it on my side bar. Anyway, I need to think about something, and this is my "thinking corner" so I'll think. Think, Think, Think...  Sorry, just had to say it:)

So, I've taken this Gluten Free, Gettin' Healthy thing pretty seriously.  Uhh, a little too seriously. I realized yesterday that I think it was one of my "Manic Project's."  One where I catch a vision and I work my bunz off trying to make it come to pass.  But this one actually has just made me bummed really.  Honestly, I just wanted a place to blog about our health and help others along with keeping a good record. But now that I've taken hours building the blog, I'm not sure if I actually want to keep it up. I don't like having to keep a separate record. It's just too much writing and too little time.

I didn't want to include it on this blog because it doesn't really go with the flow of this blog. But now I think that it could just be a new part of this blog. Really, I just don't want to bore YOU, my readers. But, I'm thinking I'm going to have to add this new element into this blog.  After all, it's a pretty life changing part of our world. I'm thinking it should just be a part of our family blog.

So, I'll think about it a bit more. But don't be surprised if there are a few more/new elements to this blog soon. 

K-  Thanks for letting me Think!;)
