Happy Summer!

Hi Everyone!

Can you believe that Summer vacation is almost over?  Are you ready for the kids to go back to school yet?  I think we are ready around here.  LOL!  Here is a pic I took of my craft room today.  As you can see, some of the little kids have been in here.  We are getting new carpets on Monday so hopefully life will slow down a bit once I am clean and organized.  Hope so!

Happy Friday!

Hello All!

Today did not seem like a Friday at all!  It feels like Saturday and I have been running all day long.  I haven't been in my craft room much but I plan to soon.  We are getting new carpets in all of our house in two weeks so I am going to be busy decluttering and deep cleaning until then.  YIKES!!

I wanted to share some recent pictures.  I hope you are all having a great Summer!  It has been HOT here and I have been out playing tennis in it!  Yes, I think I might be a little crazy for that.  LOL!

Check out my harvest so far from my garden!  These cucumbers were HUGE!!

I came home from Utah and my tomatoes had gone crazy!!  I had a sweet little 12 year old helping me water them for the 10 days I was gone and she did a FABULOUS job!! 

Love working with the missionaries from our church.  The sweet little 18 year old Elder Nelson, in the middle, was transferred to a different area this week.  We will miss him but know that the Lord needs him in another area.  He was one of the first missionaries called out into the mission field after our church changed the age of missionaries from 19 to 18.  What a blessing the missionaries are to our family.

Happy Late Fourth and I'm Back from Vacation!

Hello Friends!

Did you all miss me?  I'm back from my 10 day vacation!  PHEW!  So happy we don't have anything else planned until November.  I am wiped out!  I drove the kids to Karlee's over a week ago and then we both caravanned to Utah Sunday after church.

For the 4th of July we watched the Freedom Festival Parade in Provo, Utah.  Then we met at a park for a picnic with Bryan's family, after we went swimming at the Pleasant Grove Pool, then we met for pizza at Bryan's brother's house, and finished the night with fireworks at the Pleasant Grove Middle School.  WOW!!  It was an AWESOME day!!  I love my time in Utah with all of my extended family. I sure miss living near them!

This is the new Provo Temple (which there will be 2 now!)  We were so happy to be staying in a hotel right next to it so we could drive by it everyday.  If you have ever seen an LDS Temple you know how beautiful they are!  This one is going to be gorgeous!

I also was able to get quite a few scrapbook pages done on our 18 hour drive home.  Here is a quick one I made.  I am only 3 1/2 years behind now!! WOWZA!!  

Also, wanted to let everyone know who is interested that we are starting the Book of Mormon Book Club in one week, on Monday, July 15.  I still have extra copies of the Book of Mormon if you would like me to send you one to read and discuss with us.  It is such a great book to read!  I feel inspired to live my life better every time I pick it up.  Just send me an e-mail at and I will send you out a copy in the next few days so you get it in time.  I will start a separate page for those of you who are in the Book Club where we can share with each other.  

Big hugs to all of you!
