Sunshine Sunday - mini professor Xavier, Santas who clean drains, and cupcakes

My dad was at our house helping me with an upcoming project.  Well, he convinced Rex that he could open grandpa's trunk with his mind (a.k.a. the keys hidden in his pocket to make it open on command).  I'm not usually one to fib with my kids, but this was too funny.

Here's Rex concentrating.  (Excuse the dark pictures please.)

It requires extreme focusing...

And BAM!  He did it.  He was pretty proud of himself and it was too cute for me to spill the truth.

My husband might kill me for posting this, but he cleaned out the shower drain for me yesterday.  (He'll kill me because he's wearing his sleeper in the picture and a hair-drying wrap around his face because he said the drain was stinky.)  I sure love him.  I love how both people benefit in a good relationship.  He cleans out my hair from the drain and I clean the toilet.  Oh yes, it's true love :)

Lastly, I met a few more bloggers the other night and we had cupcakes at One Sweet Slice in West Jordan.  The owner there (Janell) was SO sweet.  She's decorated the shop perfectly and the cupcakes were incredible.  You have to stop by if you live close.  I was inspired to hear her tell us her story.  I love to hear about someone who's brave enough to chase their dreams.  I also found my new favorite treat - coconut macaroons.  They were out-of-this-world-amazing.  I've been thinking about them ever since.

It was a good week.  Thanks for dropping in.


  1. Your Rex is so cute! :) Sometimes it's the Force, sometimes it's the mutant genes ;)

  2. It's funny how Rex looks exactly like the hubs. Never realized it until now seeing him wear that wrap around his face and looking at the picture right above of Rex on his bike! :)

  3. Yay for sweet kids and hubbies!

  4. Love that picture of the Hubs! You can just see the blog fear in his eyes:)

  5. Those cupcakes look amazing!

  6. Ahah. If I were Jeff, I'd kill you for that picture. Rex is a cutie. See you guys Thursday.

  7. Janell is a friend of mine. She taught me how to decorate cakes. I love her shop too. I will have to pass on to her that you blogged about her.

  8. Rex is adorable! So is your husband. ;)

    We have Georgetown Cupcake sort of close to us. They are the ones from the TLC show, "DC Cupcakes". We knew about their shop before they became famous. It's kind of sad in a way, because before we felt like they were our little secret. Now, not so much.

    Happy Sunday!

  9. That thing about opening the truck reminds me of the VW / kid dressed as Darth Vader commercial. Yeah, too cute.
    And we just cleaned out shower drain last week. By we, I mean my husband left it opened for me to finish the job. I put it in upside down so the screws stick up, and we still haven't fixed it yet. I just don't think of taking a screwdriver into the shower with me.
    I love your blog. It is so cute to read the things you post.

  10. I second the VW commercial comment! :0 My 4 year old son and I were at Joanns the other day and the automatic sliding door was right next to the register we were checking out at. He was wiggling and the door opened. He then proceeded to amuse himself and everyone else in line by jumping toward the door and using his "super hero arm shooters" to open the door over and over and laughing hysterically. My dad also has him convinced if he touches the emblem on the front of his car that he can make the horn honk (also a key fob in Boppa's pocket). I just love little boys and their awesome sense of humor!
