It's Conference Time

The Church came out with a packet for Conference this next weekend. Click here to view it. As a Primary we wanted to distribute them to all the children in the ward. We felt that it was more appropriate for Senior Primary.

So for Junior Primary, I created this Conference Packet.

You can also check out Sugardoodle for more great conference ideas. Click here.

Blog - updated!

My funny little Sofia asked me yesterday what the pretty paper on the fridge was with little flowers on it.

I replied "It's an invitation for a Baby Shower".

She looked at me with a quizzical look and said "A baby shower? You mean Reed is going to take a shower?"

I have finally updated my blog. 16 new posts dating all the way back to Valentine's Day. To my faithful readers - thanks for your patience! I will try and be more on top of it and not let so many photos get clogged up on my camera.

Where did the summer go?

We had a fantastic summer - enjoyed every degree of it! Here are some highlights of the many things we did.

We did a lot of yard work. It went from looking like this:
To looking like this:
And oh so much more yard work to go!

Went to Taylorsville Dayzz, and rode lots of rides.We also went to the Salt Lake County Fair, and rode rides there too!

Spent time with cousins and LOTS of family.

Played dress up

Played store
"Free sapel be carfol with the yellow plese take one of each."

And enjoyed nice warm days with nice cool water.
Goodbye summer. I'll miss you dearly!

Happy Birthday Bella!

Today my little Bella turns 7 years old!

She woke up to her present on her plate - something she reminded me about several times the night before.It was a spotz maker. They're little coin shaped things you can put all kinds of pictures in. (Basically one more thing for mom to pick up off the floor!) She loves it!
It must have been a special day, because Mom made breakfast - that usually only happens at dinnertime. Waffles with fresh strawberries and blueberry muffins.
After church we went to Grandma's for a special birthday dinner. She had the place all decked out!
After dinner we had a round of "Birthday Bingo", and even had goodie bags! Thanks Grandma and Aunt Jane for a great party!
Bella isn't a big cake fan (go figure!) so she voted for ice cream sundaes for her birthday dessert. Good choice Bella! We had loads of fun!
Bella is a very sweet, very generous little girl. I love how helpful she is, and she loves to have lots of hugs and kisses and spend time with her family. She is very smart, and beautiful to boot! Thanks Bella for being a great daughter. I can't believe how big you are!

Stay tuned for pictures from her birthday party - it was a little family party in August. She wanted a swimming party and you can't do that here in September!

Happy Labor Day!

Most people would say that Labor Day is a holiday to "get away" from work. For some reason Jeff and I interpret it as "need to work".

We worked in the backyard all day. Lucky for us our great neighbor Susan let us borrow her "motorcycle" (as the kids call it) and it made hauling away the many, many rocks, a little more exciting.
Lucky for Jeff he didn't have to haul his wheelbarrow full of rocks down and across the street to dump them on an empty lot!

Then we treated ourselves to Chick-fil-a for dinner. If you wore a college logo - you got free food. I can't think of a better reason to go out all decked out in ASU gear!
