2013 Blue Jeans Week 35

We had a good week--a very busy one, but a good one.  Schedules are getting figured out, and we are in the back-to-school groove, although we could all get to bed a little earlier and that would be helpful.  We were very ready for the 3 day weekend and enjoyed it a lot.  Here is a look at our week. . .
I had ordered an Aebelskiver pan and got it this week, so Sunday morning Ben made us Aebelskivers for breakfast.  Yum!  They are Danish, and Ben's dad went to Denmark on his mission, so Ben had them growing up.  They are a round pancake cooked in a special pan.  We decided we liked them best smothered in Nutella, but what isn't good smothered in Nutella?  I will share our recipe on Wednesday.

Tuesday is my laundry day, and I had a lot today.  Sign, but all that laundry means I have a house full of people I love, and that is a good thing!

Mr J had the same brown bag assignment Miss E did for his 3rd grade class.  He had to pick 3-5 things that helped describe him or things that he liked that would fit in the bag and bring to school to share.  Here is what he chose:  Thomas the train since he loves trains, a lego creation since he also loves legos, his back bag of rocks that he got when we rode on the train in Colorado this summer, and his metronome that he uses for piano because he likes playing the piano.  

School is back in session, so that means I can go to lunch with my girlfriends every so often which I love because I love them!  

Miss O and Miss A practicing their band music.  Yes, in case you didn't know, my house is extremely loud.

I got to go with my older girls up to the city and go to the temple with them.  We had a great time!

And let it begin. . .first BYU football game of the season.  It was a rather pathetic and sad one, but still it is exciting the season has started, and hopefully they will just get better!!!

I am linking up with The Mom Creative

Thanks for visiting!  Have a great week!


  1. I can so relate on the laundry--that's what I did for Labor Day! @ of my kids had that same brown bag assignment. It's popular these days. Love your lunch out shot with the ladies. Lucky you!

  2. I love all your pictures this week!

    We missed most of the BYU game due to the lightning storm, and then they switched it to ESPN3, which we don't have.
    How fun that you got to go to lunch w/ your girlfriends!
    I LOVE going to the temple & how neat that you got to go with your girls.
    What a positive spin you put on doing so much laundry. :)

  3. The game was so sad... SO sad! Greg and I were in Idaho in a movie theatre for the kids show Planes - trying to watch the game on his phone without bothering all the people around us. When the interception happened, we nearly had to leave because we were do devastated.

    And I love that thought about the laundry - I need to remember that.
