It was a risky venture putting the children in it, because we took MG out of the crib and took away her bink AT THE SAME TIME. Miraculously, and I do mean miraculously, she was happy enough with her new bed and pillow to go to sleep. She slept all night.
We've had a few rougher nights and naps since then, but still, the cold turkey method worked for us.
The rest of last weekend was a whirlwind - Slice went to a 2-day paintballing camp. He got home, I went to the Relief Society dinner and part of the broadcast. I left early, we went to the high school and took Homecoming pictures until 11:30 p.m. On Sunday, my other nursery leaders didn't show up (but 14 toddlers did). Monday we worked all day and attempted family pictures in the evening. It was sort of a disaster. My children were very obstinate and the wind didn't help. Oh well! We got an updated-for-now family photo!

Well, that and some new carpet .......
Today Slice is back at work and I am putting away the seven loads of laundry I also did over the weekend. I have 7 photo shoots coming up, which is exciting, and an ANNIVERSARY TRIP IN NOVEMBER to look forward to! Guys! I'm going on a trip!
