The Skog Family Week in Review

Only about 3 weeks behind now.  Not too shabby.  Here is the Easter weekend report.  Enjoy.

Clean Friday

Good Friday Eve was spent cleaning the house for a 'reporter' that was coming on Friday morning.  We have this strange ledge in our kitchen and Wheels so bravely climbed out to do the dusting that doesn't occur there too frequently.  I would have done it but I was afraid that I weighed too much... I'm not afraid of heights.  Shut up!  No YOU are!  Let's move on.

Easter 2010

It doesn't get much better than the annual Easter egg coloring.  This year we even had a special guest appearance by Madzy Padzy and Maximus.  Sorry we hogged all of the eggs.

The Easter Bunny Delivers

Wheels' Dad came out over the weekend and brought the girls Easter baskets from Grandma Wheels and an even better present for Wheels and I that shall be featured in a later post. This video probably gets the notorious GP rating which means it is only suitable for grandparents. You've been warned.

It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Easter

The week of Easter brought some unseasonably cold weather including what was quite possibly the worst snowstorm of the year.  Because of the inclement conditions each family held their own Easter egg hunt in their homes rather than meeting for a large hunt at the park.  I do have video footage of this event but it was like a British dramatical mini series, rather lengthy and not exactly action packed.  On a side note, if we were casting the British version of Skog Blog: The Movie, Rockstar would play herself (her teeth make her an excellent candidate), Gwyneth Paltrow would play Toots (so versatile, think Dorf on Golf, wait, what?  She's not British?  Yes she is.  Next thing you are gonna tell me is that Dick Van Dyke wasn't British either.  I've seen Mary Poppins, you can't pull off that accent and not be from England...) Freddie Highmore would play Superstar (He could pull it off in drag, that kid is the best in the business).  Wheels would be Kate Winslet and I of course would be played by Colin Firth.  Toots made the best discovery of the entire hunt when she found this sippy cup in the playroom kitchen cupboard.  Awesome.  Reset the Skanky Rotten Sippy Cup counter.

The Next Survivor Immunity Challenge

After watching LDS General Conference, I've heard people say things like, "Spiritually uplifted" or "My batteries were recharged" or "Best nap ever!" Did any of these people watch conference with little children? My favorite part of these two clips is when the speaker on the TV is talking about reverence as the Skog Girls wrestle over a box of Nerds. Good times. I know I thought watching conference was very rewarding this year. My other conference highlight was at the Priesthood session when my brother in law, Utahfun, put on the greatest snoring exhibition that any chapel has ever seen. At one point my other brother in law, Herms, said, "Dude, you gotta elbow him," and I replied, "No way, I want to see how far he can take this." Kudos and hats off, UtahFun.

Better a snoring exhibition than a farting one. Apparently Erik had to walk out of priesthood because he couldn't stop farting and he was embarrassed. Erik doesn't get embarrassed easily, so it must have been pretty bad.

Nicely shared, Skye.

That house looks pretty clean. The two of you for hire?

I'm proud that I had no idea who Colin Firth was and upset that you do.

Finally got around to viewing the video. I can read blogs all day long during lecture at school, but I haven't mastered the secret ear piece yet. Love the conference videos, although you can hardly blame J for being upset when she gets her candy wrestled away from her!

Adorable pics, adorable kids, plus you mentioned Gwyneth Paltrow and made me laugh out loud a couple of times so this week in review gets the blue ribbon.

P.S. I hate Vitamin Water Zero and much preferred the taste of the 10 calorie version.
