made it!

We are here in Utah and are having a ball. I am soooooo thankful for the goody bag from Alisa. We had 3 of the 4 kids through up and the glad bags came in handy! We wanted to take a different route this time and tried to go to Colorado Springs, then get on I-70. Well in Amarillo i took the wrong turn and after 5 hours in the car we ended up in Oklahoma again! We told the kids we decided to not go to Utah. OH the cries that came from the back!

Taylor and Chase have played with their cousins. Aubrey and Kalab have not gone to bed before 10:00pm. I have been so sleepy! But it is all worth it! I am not sure where we are going to sleep tomorrow but we are having fun!

Ward Party

I think this is one of my favorite ward parties ever!

Patsy asked Taylor and Chase's class to fill water balloons!
She brought them over and there was 450 in a package and she brought 2 PACKAGES.

900 for me to tie!

Luckily Julie came and saved us. She and Ryan took one package.

While we were filling them Chase filled the bucket with water. I told him to dump the water out or it would be to heavy to carry. Well he did what I ask and dumped the water and half the balloon out on the grass and we lost almost all the filled, already tied balloons! UHRG!

It was a fun day!

Here are some pics of the party!

I just can't believe this little guy is 3. He wants Rescue Hero's! They don't sell Rescue Hero's anymore! He loves to play! I love to watch him! I put olives on his fingers and they had come to life in his mind. They started talking to each other! He loves Aubrey and sometimes his brothers. Loves to go to nursery and loves his friends.
We love him and are so thankful he is in our family

Sunday at church a cute little girl, around Taylor's age, was sitting back by us. She would look over at us then look away. I watched her and could not figure out why she was watching us. Then I looked at Taylor and thought how cute he looked with his hair done, that he did by himself and the white shirt he picked out to wear that day. I wondered where my first born had gone and when he stopped looking like a cute little boy to a boy who is turning into a handsome young man!

my dollar find

I found these at Aldi's last night for $1.00each.... I love to find cheap plants, especially free in the dumpster plants. heehee...... I took these up to the register with my 2.49 milk and 99 cent eggs {{cheap for around here}} the lady said "good luck with those". I'll take a picture at the end of summer to let you know if I killed them or not.

this is our old stove. to get the oven working i had to pull the drawer out and tap a piece in the back lightly with a hammer. The flame would come on and i could bake 1 batch of cookies (is 12 cookies considered a batch or are all the cookies a batch)???? Then have to hit it again for the next dozen...... My cookies are soooo worth that! finally just wouldn't start at all so for the last two months we did not have homemade cookies....I have been checking on craigslist for a stove and this is what i found.

I have been catching up on making all my baked goods! Yummy!


We headed out to the Express Ranch for their 10 year celebration.We stopped to watch a magic show

get free Braums ice cream
ride the pony's.... this one plus real ones. I let Blayne take pictures and they didn't turn out.

Pretended to be cowboys
