If you want directions on how to make them just click the FHE link in my blog list.
UPDATE: So I figured I would post how the FHE tonight went and what the kiddos did. Oh and by the way the sky dessert was SOOOOO YUMMY!!
Okay so here are the Lehi's Vision Pictures the kids did. Ethan was less than cooperative tonight so I helped him color his poster. Jojo's poster isn't done yet but she wanted to eat her sky so she is going to color it later.

Then she got to open all of her presents, which she has been dying to do for a few days now as the majority of them were purchased via Internet or being sent for grandmas & grandpas.She has been really good about though and knew she had to wait until after cake.
This one is for you Grandma & Grandpa Battson, your little birthday princess.
Dave & I got here a Princess Pop-up play tent since she has been making "forts" here and Ethan keeps knocking them down. We decided this would be a good solution.
A new big princess blanket, most of her blankets now are from when she was born. I figured it was time for an upgrade.Princess Game: Domino'sPlay make-up: mainly lipstickPrincess Backpack for Preschool this fall.
More play jewelry...can you really have too much :)
All in all she had a very fun day playing with friends and getting to dress up like a princess.
UPDATE: So Jo got one more present from her Meme & Poppop that we need to share it with you because her expression was priceless.

Just thought I would share this with you all... Jo and Ethan are too funny sometimes. Jo was drinking a capri sun and decided to share with Ethan. Some how she figured out that she could blow it up and then squish it when it was in Ethan's mouth. She thought it was pretty funny and well.... Ethan did too.

For the 4th of July my Dad came down to visit with me and the kiddos and help us celebrate the day since Dave was out working hard in the heat. We didn't really budget in fireworks this year so we settled for pop-it for the kids. I think it was a great plan as I am a little leery of the sparklers and the hot sparks it shoots off with Ethan (aka accident prone boy). They did really well with it Jojo could make them pop most of the time, but Ethan on the other hand had a hard time..he did manage to do it once or twice.
We were sitting down eating dinner trying to decide where we should go to watch fireworks when I got a call from Dave saying he was on his way home and wanted to take the kids to go see "Wall-e", it was a great surprise! So we loaded up the kids and headed for the movies. They were really really extremely good through the whole movie. Ethan was content to sit on my lap as long as he had a jumbo sprite in his hand and the popcorn close by. It was a cute movie but don't think it was all that entertaining for our kiddos as they seemed to get really restless during the last 30 minutes of the movie. After the movie was over we rushed home to see if we could watch fireworks from our patio. Sure enough we could see some big ones just down the street so it was probably one of the best 4th's considering we were just winging it.
Okay I know I am a little behind on events so I will try to catch back up. When my mom was down here we decided to take the Kids to the Portland Zoo since it was suppose to be a really nice day, or at least we thought. What we didn't account for was the fact that it was early morning and most of the zoo is under tree cover soooo...it was actually pretty cold but the kids were troopers. This is a pic of all the kids looking at a sleeping black bear, it kept moving so they thought it was pretty entertaining not to mention we had them all growling like bears.
Next we went to the fish, this was Ethan's favorite because he can actually say "fish" well "fis" is what it sounds like but that is close enoughThen it was off to the petting zoo portion of the zoo which we thought the kids would really enjoy. Most did but Jo seemed to be in a bad mood by the time we got there because she just put on a frowny face whenever we tried to get her to pet an animal. At least Ethan enjoyed it!!
We were pretty lucky the day that we went they were really trying to draw attention to their wild cat exhibits so the kids got to say hi to "Tony the tiger" It was a blast and one of the cooler zoo's I have been to.
