Had an awesome day

with my momma and little girl, went to the Artisan Fair and the quilt store. Sported my new sassy hairdo (really sassy! hehe) Then came home to a beautiful, wonderful smelling rainstorm. So I ordered my kids outside(only two of them listened) and demanded that they play in the rain while I grabbed my camera and shot some of my favorite pictures ever!! Please summer never end......

I have the greatest

Mother in law, she is wonderful, loving and kind. She also has a wicked sense of humor if you listen close enough. I am so lucky to have her in my life. So here is my top ten list of things that I love about her.

1. This lady has chased,killed, and plucked chickens as a child. tough cookie
2. She can quilt, sew, bake, cook, can. (pretty much rocks)
3. She is completely selfless.
4. She endured being a wife to a Bishop 6 yrs and Stake President for 11 yrs and I never heard her complain. Think about that though long time.
5. She had a baby at 42 and still loves him.
6. She like myself sees how absolutely wonderful John is.
7. She loves my kids and takes the time to tell them.
8. Porter would say she always has cookies and string cheese.
9. She loves unconditionally seriously she does it for real!!!
10. She loves me despite my many faults.
Happy Birthday Mom!!! Love you bunches and Bunches!!

On a lighter note

I thought what about a little flashback friday, I thought this was funny although some of you may be too young to remember some of these. But excuse while I go roll my jeans and put my banana clip in my hair! Have a great weekend!

Taking a break today

I get to spend the day with these two angels, and I couldn't be happier. As much as I adore being a mom, I really love being an aunt, kinda like being a grandma without the wrinkles. (hopefully). So forgive me today but I really need some snuggles and lego, and gi joe time with these sweeties.

Do you know people??

That just rock? you wonder how they do what they do, and you are in awe of them, I know alot and though I am not a big hugger or note writer, (if you have ever given me a gift, I apologize I am grateful I just suck at writing Thank you notes). But I do notice things, I have done something simailar to this in the past and I am always looking for ways to be more positive, I want to try again. Ultimate Positive People are going to be featured today. They may never see this but I know its here and when I look back I can model myself after them when I want to choke the nearest ding dong.
1. Smilin Stacie Keime=always GENUINELY smiling, So sweet and grateful, plus she's beautiful with sweet gorgeous kiddos. I love me some sweet little Millie! I also love that she always really thinks about what she says before she says it and you can see her being very careful. I DON'T have a filter like that. Love, LOVE love Stacie!
2. Amazing Ann Brough= I have NEVER heard this girl complain about anything. Not to say that she doesn't but I just have never heard it. She is such an awesome person, always wanting to help people, such a great Mom plus she makes me laugh! I love how motivated she is always running or doing something athletic, (seriously can we bottle that drive). Love Ann
3. Nie Nie I don't know her personally but I go to her blog for a kick in the behind whenever I need one. First the odds she has overcome are truly INSPIRING but her take on life usually always makes me cry. I want to know how to be like that, take a trip to her she really is so awsome.
More to come don't worry if you know me I admire you in one way or another and your time is coming!!

February Are you kidding me??

Has it been that long since I blogged, WOW what a loser! Well needless to say I have a ton to recap but I am not sure how much I will recap because who wants to catch up, but a few things yes maybe... I can account for my time from February to April, So here goes I am now a certified sparkler (phlebotomist, if you are a fan of twilight you get that) and a CNA, neither of which I am using at the moment, but it felt so good to be back in school learning something even if I just use it for family and such. I also helped direct another school musical, my favorite so far Willy Wonka plus I got to work with two of my favorites! These girls rock!!
I would insert a picture here of us together but for the fourth time I was too busy to even get pictures of my kids. Ugh! Horrible Mom!

Also this little guy turned 7 and had his first friend party (I don't usually do this because me being one of 6 John being one of 7 we are a walking party) He had fun and so did I, I might even do it again (maybe) We had a cowboy party and the boys were so cute, they roped a bull (plastic) rolled the hay (clarification not a roll in the hay) and got tractor rides with my other 7 yr old John who did donuts in the tractor. It was a blast!
I have also been working on some remodeling projects that don't suck! So I will post pics of those soon when I finally finish putting down the baseboard, and when just went on a FABULOSO vacation! That was the best I have ever been on!! I love my family!! Hopefully I will still have readers and followers but who knowS?? Is anybody out there??
