Yargh!

This weekend was General Conference for my church. I had been anticipating the chance to watch it on TV (one of the perks of being in Utah for conference). I had hoped to enjoy a spiritual weekend and also get a lot of knitting done. Sadly this was not what ended up happening.

The boys went nuts!!! It was so frustrating to have to listen to Evan whining because he wanted to be anywhere else. It was not like I expected all that much out of them. I just wanted them to be in the same room and to be somewhat quiet. By the end I was ready to scream in frustration.

I have a feeling that Evan is trying to make it look like we beat him up. Since we have been here he has scraped his chin two separate times. He has also fallen down the stairs even though he was not actually walking on the stairs. He was just walking past them and then randomly took a tumble. Yesterday while we were eating dinner at my husband's sister's house he bonked his lip and ended up with a nasty fat lip. I saw the entire thing and no one bumped or touched him at all. It is a good thing we are leaving in a few days, if we stay much longer Evan will be unrecognizable.

It's the law of extended family. My son does it as well.

It's the different environment. Our son got more dings than usual, too, on a trip this summer (especially in the hotel).
