Why do we own so many beds?

I took this pic last night when I went to turn out all the lights in the house.
I keep finding all three younger kids piled together asleep in one twin bed. For some reason, it reminds me of a book I read them called "Going to Sleep on the Farm". On the pig page it says, "A pig curls up with its family and friends. Where one pig starts another pig ends." So, its not a pig pile. Its a kid pile. :)

New Years Resolutions

Well, I looked back at last year's new years resolutions. There's only one that I actually kept: attending the temple every month.
What I'm gonna do this year:

1. Run 3 miles a week. Yep, that's 3 not 30. Times have changed. :)

2. Take my kids to see every temple in Utah. Seriously. We're gonna make a day of it, and on some of them, make a weekend of it. We might leave Dan behind on some of them. But Rachel and I are both gonna take our cameras along. We're also gonna go on picnics or whatever there is to do near the temples. I think we might wait til its a bit warmer on most of them. Any ideas of what to do near some of them? I think we'll go to the Manti pageant to see the Manti temple.

3. I'm gonna finish painting the entire house this year. Any volunteers to help me? :) I've got 4 bedrooms and the TV room still left to paint. And the playroom under the stairs if Dan every finishes it. I still need to do the trim in the hall upstairs too.

4. Once again, temple every month.

5. I'm out of ideas. Got a good suggestion?
