Awesome Daddy!!!

Last week, the boys and I rode with Randy to Pangitch

(ok I know I spelled that wrong but not a clue as to how to spell it, so this is how you get it)!! Jayden was so excited because as soon as we got to Cedar there was snow everywhere and he could not wait to eat it!! Yep, eat it, he loves to eat snow, so of course he had to give some to Colton!! My sweet husband, he really didnt have the time to stop and let Jayden play but also couldnt disapoint his little boy. So of course he stopped, Jayden and I built a snow man and had a snow ball fight!! Of course you cant forget all the snow we ate!! YUM YUM!!!

Ok so Sarah, has been trying to get me ( well anyone she can talk into it) to do the freezer dinner thing, so I did it last week, I shopped Tuesday, cooked wednesday, thursday, fridayand saturday, but I have 36 dinners in my freezer, I am so excited because it just takes so much time to cook and costs so much more. I think this has saved me so much, I have figured that I think I spent about $9.50 a dinner, now here is the great part there is 8 of us, $9.50 that is so awesome, that will cut my food bill in more then half!! But boy do I have to tell you I am so glad to be done!! Know you should also know that I love to cook and that was alot of cooking!!

My sweet little Colton went in this morning for his 18 month check, he's doing awesome 24.4 pounds so around the 25 % and 34 inches tall so around the 75 % so of course he looks tall and skinny!! Whats new they all look that way!! Here is my sweet Jayden with his stitches, man he was not happy about those. Hopefully it will be awhile before we have to deal with something like that again!!

Wow it has just been so crazy, this time of year is just run, run, run!! Thanks giving was awesome, it was so great to have all my family here, we didn't have to choose where we were going to spend it, we had both sides of the family come here!! I'm really excited about this book that I am putting together, (and roped a couple of great friends into doing also!!) Its my thankful book I took a picture of everyone on thanksgiving and had everyone write what they are thankful for!! I got I think 14 pages pre-made so I'm hoping to get back to it and get all the pictures printed and put it together!!

I didn't go out black Friday until about 9 a.m. Michale came with me so that was really fun, I think our deal of the day was the leather coats we got at JcPenny for $48 they are originally $200, but I get mine now and she has to wait till Christmas!! What a mean mom!! I did finish her up with some clothes and some boots, I just have to get stocking stuffers and shes done, Jake is about done also, but that is about as far as Ive gotten, I'm debating on the train set at Costco for the boys, the one that has its own table and drawers underneath for when your not playing!! Merissa I think is going to get a Karaoke Machine, Monica is pretty easy I will probably just get her more Polly pockets or maybe some of the pet shop stuff like that!!

The girls performed at the Jubilee of trees, that was a lot of fun then they also have the dickens festival coming up!! Merissa got to do her Show team dance for the first time, she thought that was a lot of fun, and they are hoping to get to do their hip hop dance this time!!

Oh yea before I forget Jayden my sweet boy, ok let me start at the beginning, I was getting my nails done it was about 7 p.m. I get a call from Merissa she says, daddy said to call me that Jayden got hurt and he is bleeding, and dad cant talk cause he is trying to stop the bleeding and he might have to take Jayden to the Dr., so Natalie finishes my nails and I head home and I call home on my way Randy says its not so bad he doesn't think he will need stitches he thinks a band aide will be fine, Im thinking oh good it just must have looked alot worse with all the blood!! So I get home and Randy is just getting Jayden out of the tub and I pick him up and tell him mommy needs to look under his band aide he of course starts bawling his head off and I tell him I'm not going to touch it just look (oh by the way it is still oozing blood down his face from under the band aide!!) so I pull back the band aide, oh my word is that his brain or skull that I'm looking at?? Then of course I scream RANDY!!! He answers back from the other room, I know I just wanted you to be the bad guy and say he needed stitches!! So 6 stitches later and a VERY unhappy little boy that took mom dad and 2 nurse and one Doctor!! He tells me that he was running SUPER fast and Colton wouldn't get out of his way and he fell on the corner of the banister!!!

Universal Studios

The girls performed on friday, it was such a great experience for them!! They did such a great job!! The light was not good so my pictures didnt turn out very good so Im bummed about that, but they were so cute up there on stage, and they were just happy to be there!!

The day at Universal was way fun, they only had 2 real rides but they were both alot of fun, Jurassic park and the Mummy ride! Merissa rode the first along with Monica and Jake, Michale and I then Randy and I switched and Monica stayed the poor little thing was scarred to death! Its really just the end of it that is scary, but she was pretty dang serious that she was never riding that ride again!! LOL
Then of course the other kids were totally excited about the "RED CARPET" LOL we're movie stars, Im so Hot Just a coule of the things I kept hearing!!

Then of course we hit the beach a couple of days, and the kids had a blast Colton sure wasnt sure about the ocean I kinda had to drag him over to it and then would run away as quick as I let him go!!

Home now and its back to running like crazy! But it was a great get away!!

Slow down!!!

Time waits for no one is what they say, hey I'm one of those that say that!!! Holy cow where has the time gone. Jayden had show and share man awhile ago and here I am just now posting a pic!! He was so excited to take dancer with him, and so thrilled to show everyone this is my awesome dog!! The kids were darling so excited to see this big dog in their class!!!

Ok now I'm catching up this just happened Thursday, our school's annual Raptor Romp, each grade does a dance, and my sweet little Monica, she's a kindergartner and she got to do "don't go dancin with a dinosaur" She did such a good job, and most important she had a blast doing it!!!

Know here is Merissa and she did the twist, such a way stinkin fun dance and its amazing how fast all the kids pick up on hula hooping for those that hadn't already able too!! I do have to admit though that, this is my favorite out of all the dances, I think they just look like they are having a blast and 2 years ago when Jake did this dance he LOVED it, and was one of those that couldn't really hula, after this he sure could. Any way it is still my favorite, she did a great job although they did take a couple of parts out this year, but none the less they did awesome!!! My sweet little Merissa if she knows your taking pictures then she has all eyes on you with her picture smile in place!! So funny!!!

Oh now here is my darling son, the one in the back with the blond hair (not to be confused with a girl) LOL, his class did a Hawaiian dance, and he was all over that, said it reminded him of when we lived there!! Now him

and Merissa so opposite, he didn't want to look at me because he was embarrassed of me sitting in the front

taking pictures, so he wouldn't look at me, he said he would loose concentration and forget the dance. He did awesome!!

Ok I don't know how great the picture on this turned out I took it last night so it was dark so no lighting to help, this is for a
circle journal group I am in with some of the best
girls in the whole world!! This one just happens to
be going in Kasi's and I have met her and Amy they
live up north (salt lake area) anyway I get to go visit
or they come here every couple of months and we shop and scrap our hearts out. We
have so so much fun together!!! Anyway this is for Kasi's book, she wanted a page about you, so that was kinda fun scrappin about me, cause of course I never do!!
Any way life is crazy hopefully it will slow down soon, I don't imagine that it will but it sure would be nice!!

Ok Randy was talking to Michale and I today about seeing this new car at the gas station and it had a bra on the front and on the back and Michale didnt know what a bra was and it reminded me of a little funny thing that happened to me when I was about 12-13!!

My parents had a 280 zx well my dad asked me to go and wash the car and oh by the way dont forget to take the bra of course I go in the house and take off MY bra!! So Im outside washing the car BRALESS, so of course dad comes out while Im washing and says why didnt you take the bra off!!! Hello .................ding light bulb goes off in my head!! DUH!!

I DID IT!!!!!!

Can I tell you it was the most amazing thing ever, probably one of the hardest, yet easiest things, one of the funnest but one of the worst, one of the most exellerating, I know feel like I can do anything I set my mind too!!
Ok so let me start at the beginning, Friday we got together and went to the expo to pick up our numbers and look around and go listen to the speaker who was talking to the first timers. Then we were meeting for dinner and going to the cabin. So we ate pasta and salad for dinner went to pine valley figured out where we were sleeping, then we talked watched t.v. played games, and went to bed, but not before long discussions about what we were wearing and getting it all set out. Well it was so awesome that we got to stay in pine valley because that meant we didn't have to be up at 3 in the morning we got up at 5:15 when a lot of people were already waiting at the starting line!! WHOOO HOOOO!! So we got up Saturday morning got ready cheered if we went # 2!! (Kinda funny what runners cheer about) LOL. We got to the start line probably 5-10 minutes before it started, dropped our first bag of clothes in the truck, and made our way to our spots. We actually never heard the gun go off, we were just kinda all of a sudden just slowly going forward. So at mile one we dropped our second bag of clothes oh I think I failed to mention the temp. when we got to the start 30 yep 30 so cold but awesome!! I ran in my way cute running running skirt so cute 2 pockets on the sides little compression shorts underneath so cute!! so I just ran and it was awesome, it started to get more difficult at about mile 23 I kinda had to start talking to my self you know like" you can do this" "you are strong" "you've trained hard for this" "your muscles are so strong"!! Any time that I started thinking about my family in those last few miles I started getting pretty emotional so I had to ban family thoughts from my mind!!! But nothing compairs to when you turn that corner to the end of the race, and you think you are totally spent and that when you hear those wonderful friends and family who have come to cheer for you, and its like a little bit of the energy is transferred to you!! Then as I came down the home stretch and I turned because I heard my mom and sister and daughter, yelling for me, Then I hear my husband and a wonderful surprise my in laws all came to watch me, oh then I really started crying I was there the finish line and everyone I cared about was there to celebrate with me!!
Ok now I m going to tell you my time, so I had in my mind when I first signed up that I wanted to do it around 5 hours, well then I started thinking that I really wanted to do it under 5 hours like around 4:45, but really I thought it would be so cool to hit around 4:30 but I thought there is no way I can do that, but when I was at the expo, I picked up the 4:30 wrist band, even though I forgot it race day!! But I passed the 4:30 balloons about mile 3 then she passed me about mile 21 I tried to keep up with her but I thought she was running faster then the 10:18 time because I was running faster then that! So I thought well at least maybe I will make it around 4:45 which would really make me happy so, when I ran through the finish line it said 4:35 something which I was so excited but I kinda forgot about chip time which we had to tie this little thing to our shoe and it starts when you go over the start and stops when you go over the finish so I went and got my shoe wanded and I got 4:29:08 YAY so excited so much better then I thought so awesome!!
Ok so I was SO SO SO sore never in my life have I ever been so sore! I walked so funny!! I got a message at 2 that day then all through the second session of conference, my wonderful Michale messaged me all through it, and let me tall you it felt wonderful!! But today I feel 98 % better so I think I will go to spin in the morning so, would I do it again.....HEMMMMMMMMMMM YEP!!!! I cant wait!!! Crazy, I know!!

1 DAY!!!!

.......................and counting!!! I am so excited I can hardly stand it!!! I still really havent gotten the shoe thing figured out but it will work out!! I got to the post office and picked up the skirts!! Yay so excited to have them, I am a little worried about it though, it will be about 47 in the beginning, then will get up to 63 at the end, I am so excited that I feel like I am shaking inside!! By almost this time tomorrow morning the gun will go off!!! It almost seems sereal, I still think of myself a year ago, 50 pounds heavier no exersice, and I think your fat your lazy you cant run let alone run 26.2 miles!! I have to really talk to myself, get a real mental game goin on in my head, you can do it, you have trained HARD for this!! So this is it the moment of truth!!

Feeling motivated

We went riding Saturday, it is so much fun, the kids just have a blast, me too!! It just so great getting out there and spending time with the kids. We went out on the Arizona strip, Randy says that off that rode you can get to the grand canyon who knows maybe one day we'll cruise there! I know I would love too!! This picture is of when we were loading up and Jayden and I went on one last ride, man he is so cute, he just has that sparkle of love and life, he makes me smile just looking at him, He just snuggles right up to you. So dang awesome, I just love that little guy!!
Randy took the kids and took the trailer back to our friends down in Vegas and went and visited his family, and I went to women's general conference with Renee. I am feeling so motivated, the talks really touched me, and I am really feeling like I need to step it up, I have been such a slacker lately and man that makes me feel bad, I mean come on my kids are watching me and they need to know how much I love my Heavenly father and Jesus Christ, they need to feel that I will follow and I will choose the right so that I may lead by example, and I have NOT been a good example lately, I love my Heavenly father and Jesus Christ with all my heart and they need to know that. They also need to know that service to our neighbors is very important but that is more what I need to work on. I need to be better in my calling so that I can serve willingly with a happy heart!! I feel so blessed to be part of this church it is so true I know that and I want to do and be what my Heavenly father wants me to!!
Ok so its down to the count down, 6 days to the marathon, I can do it, I know I can I trust in the training I have put in, I am excited, I am nervous, and man I think I am worried but I also know that I can do it!! The latest advice I have received has made so much sense to me, I was told that so much of the marathon is mental that if you think you can do it, you can!! If you think that you are going to feel great through the whole thing then yes you are, I mean I think that you will still be tired but I think I can do it, I have never hit the WALL, I don't think I will, I think I can do this, and I think I will feel great!! So 3 more runs then that's it 2 days off!! Then we run the whole thing, and I am going to rock!!! whooo hoooo!! Thanks for your support and cheer me on!!!

So fun

We had the most awesome time last night, we went to dinner with some friends then we went to a concert, the Belmy Brothers they put on a great show, it was pretty tame but was fun watching the drummer totally get into it, plus it was fun just going to a concert we havent been to one in like years! W e have always gone in Vegas so people are up dancing and yelling, but this was a ton of fun. I think we had 4 hours with NO kids!! Then we went for ice cream after it was so much fun, Thanks Renee and Kyle, you guys ROCK!!!
Ok so yep Im going to talk about the marathon again, I totally feel like Im going OCD about this. OK get this ONE week, oh my gosh I just got butterflies in my tummy just thinking about it!! (SCREAM) Im worried about my shoes, Im worried about my bra, Im worried about my skirt that hasnt come yet, Im worried about what time I should try to stick to in the beginning!! We only have to run 8 miles tomorrow then next week get this, we only run a 3 mile, a 4, and a 2. Then we take 2 full days off before the marathon 26.2 miles, that is just insane who, who Im asking in their right mind signs up pays money mind you no chance in you know where of even coming in within the first thousands, and I mean thousands of people!!! Not that Im trying to win or anything but come on!! Were talking like 4 1/2 to 5 hours of running!! What was I thinking!!! (Breath breath you can do this, your excited about thins remember remember) ok sorry had to talk to myself a little there!!
I m going to try to finish cleaning off my scrap table I really want to work on my cards and my swaps! Or even scrap book yay!! I just need a out let right now!

Monday, September 24, 2007

Ok these are the pages I got done while I was up north visiting Amy and Kasi. I got up there about 9:30 after helping Kasi's neighbor with her car we spent the day shopping (and night) then saturday we did a little more shopping then we scrapped until about 4-4:30 in the morning man it was so fun. Amy even called Katie and it almost felt like she was there with us!! We had so much fun just visiting and scrapping, when we were out shopping we even shopped for clothes and jewelry this time!!

Im getting so excited for the marathon I think after running the 20 miles it really felt like we can so do it, we felt so good when we got done. In fact when I got home we loaded up and took the 4-wheelers out and rode till dark!! Jake ran out of gas so we had to load his bike onto my bike so I was riding pretty slow, then went back out sunday and we went on a really long ride and wouldnt you know it, he ran out of gas again, this time Randy carried Jakes bike on his!! The kids just love it! Colton does so awesome, I just put him in my front pack and he just sits on my lap waves at the kids and makes those boy noises, you know brmmmmmm bbbbbrrrrrrrrrmmmmmmmmm!! So cute!!

Sunday, September 23, 2007


Isnt he just darling, he was so dang excited to start school ( Yes, I know he started at the beginning of september) he could hardly wait to get there and it was made even more special when his dad came home and went with us!! He had a little bit of a hard time when I left but he did great. There has only been 1 time since that I had to leave him upset, that is when we rode with Randy to pine valley and he fell asleep on the way back so I woke him when we got close and he was not happy about having to go to school, oh it was terrible he cried and then man I felt terrible!!

So sorry it has taken me so long to post again but man it has just been crazy, it seems like I havent even sat down at the computer unless im doing a lesson or something, run clean drive kids around run run run run run!!! It feels kinda crazy though that it is all going to be coming to an end in 2 weeks, Im very excited but In some ways I dont want it to end, now I know Im crazy but I just LOVE getting out there with the girls and just running and visiting, I now know what they mean 26.2 cheep therapy (but really not so cheep) LOL

any way I will come back hopefully tomorrow and post more I want to show pic's of my trip up north and what I got done but I feel the need to go snuggle with my honey have a great night all!!

Tuesday, September 4, 2007


Ok so here is the page I did for Monica for their book at school, she was vey excited to show it to her teacher. She sure was excited to get back to school, she just didnt understand the whole SEP thing and why her brother and sister got to go to school and she didnt!!
Jayden starts preschool today, which will be so weird not having him with me, but he is so excited that is all he talks about is when he starts school, he's going to be a big boy just like Jacob!! It cracks me up whenhe calls him Jacob, because the only time he heres that is of course when Im getting mad at Jake. LOL I will post pictures later of him.
Jake started gymnastics last week which he is so excited about, he did it before so I hopethis time he will stay with it. Michale continues to try to join every club at school, so funny she wants to start back into dance and she is also doing field show she plays the flute and she really enjoys it this will be her second year! Merissa Is doing super steppers again this year she also made show team so she will take an extra2 classes, Monica is also in super steppers then she will be starting piano lessons next monday so the 4 older ones will all be in piano. Jayden will also do a gymnastics class while at school and I know he will LOVE that. So it will just be Colton and I 3 times a week for 2 1/2 hours it will be good for Colton and I.

Monday, September 3, 2007

forgot about this

Oh this just cracks me up just looking at this picture of my little man. I almost forgot about it too!! I was going through and trying to get all my pictures down loaded to the costco site so I could get them ordered, I dont like to just leave them on the computer you hear to many people saying their computer crashed and they lost all their pictures. So I try to always print them. Anyway I was going through all my files and realized I forgot a file in June and went back and looked and it was from Colton's birthday, well he got his first happy meal and then he just started making these faces, so funny he would squint one eye the other would be shut and he would make this humming noise oh my gosh it was so funny and he just kept doing it. He doesnt do it very often any more but for a little while he did it all the time!!
Well I got Monica's page done last night so I will take pictures of it and post it later, it turned out pretty cute, now I just need to figure out how Im going to do my cards, I have some what of an idea, so I guess I should run with that!!
4 days till I leave for Salt Lake so excited!! Whhoooo hooooo!!

Sunday, September 2, 2007

Look so pretty

I wanted to post this picture of what I just finished because it took me FOREVER!!! I do LOVE how it turned out and yes I would probably do it again but wow that cutting out stuff is very time consuming!!! LOL
Now I need to go get a page done for Monica for their BIG book of us at school!! Then dang I ve waited till the last minute with my cards and card club is this thursday night!! I havent even started them!! So I better go get busy!

18 miles down!!!!

I am excited to report I got my 18 miles in!! We went thursday night because we were all going to go camping together that way we could still get our run in and not have to worry about getting it done in the mountains, we werent able to go camping but I still ran thursday night. I was pretty tired all day friday (which Im sure had nothing to do with the fact that I got home at 1:30 in the morning and then got back up at 7 so with about 4-41/2 hours of sleep run 18 miles, yep very tired!!! LOL It felt great to run that far and I get kinda emotional after I do these long runs. I feel so thankful for my body and its ability to get out there and run, then I start thinking about all those people out there who cant even walk and yes it gets me very, I dont know just makes me very thankful, my heavenly father has blessed me and it just gets me!!
Iam getting very excited to go to Salt lake oh how I cherish these weekends with my wonderful friends, I cant wait t see them let them know how grateful I am for their friendship I love them very much!!
I think Randy is going to take the kids and go to vegas while I am up north, the kids will be very excited they love to play with their cousin Shelbi, he always starts to get all clingy before I leave, I think he knows as a person I need it to regenerate myself but in the same token he wants me here with him!!
Randy and Jake went dove hunting yesterday, I think they are going to go again tomorrow probably after I run, but Jake was so excited he could not wait to go, Randy says thats just how he was when he was little it kinda gets Randy a little twinkle in his eye, Im glad he goes and has something to do like that it is so good for our men to have something or I think they will feel smothered by us, just like we need ours!! I know he's glad he can share his passion with his son, Jayden wants to go really bad I think Randy might try to take him too, but I know he's worried if the gun shots will scare him, Jayden says I will just do this daddy (covers ears with hands) so cute!!

Monday, August 27, 2007

Ok so I went and got a sports message last tuesday and it really helped me a ton, I felt like I was runner more like myself no pain in the hip and I could run faster. Yay!! Then after I pushed myself thursday I could start to feel it again so I schedualed another massage after my saturday long run and dang those massages are so painful you cant even imagine, the first one she said that my I. T. band which runs down the side of your leg from the hip to the knee was intertwined with my ham strings which run down the back of your leg and when she was pushing those back into place I wanted to cry, it hurt so bad, any it feels so much better I can totally tell running that it just feels so much better!!
Ok funny thing saturday we meet at 5 am at the end of the marathon and leave car there then drive out how far we are going to run, get up there and Sarah and Renee are totally freaked out because it was so dark (it really was dark) that we are going to get hit and what should we do and Sarah gota love her says "I think we should ditch running and go to I hop" so funny were like no and she is totally begging come on lets go!! LOL so funny, so they deside we should run with the light of our phones so funny I took mine thinking ok I'll do it got out there and bagged it stuck it in my pack and just tried to keep on the road, so we get all the way almost back to Sarah's van and I swear she looked like she was ready to start balling I felt so bad she forgot her keys up in the car at the top, so not a big deal, I call randy he can come get us but opps he is out at Sand hollow to ride, Renee tries to get Kyle but opps he's getting tires then Sarah's like oh I'll just have Charlie bring me the extra key, so not a big deal, what better to spend some fun time just visiting with these 2 great friends!!
Iam getting so excited for the marathon I was pretty nervous at first but after we ran that first 15 miles I thought we can do this, this week our long run will be 18 miles it will be another break through I think!! Yes we can do it!!

Wednesday, August 22, 2007


I am so blessed, we have so so so much, I dont mean monitarily, but just in general. We have our health, we can walk play and run, which is a great plus, but so much more we have the love and blessings of a heavenly father who loves us and blesses us.
I am feeling very blessed for one because I went with Randy to Cedar the other night to go to a funral for a 2 year old little boy who was run over, he was a twin and they have 8 children, which is so so wonderful!! But more is when Randy got to his friend and he said I am so sorry, the dad (Randy's friend) said "Why, isnt this what we want for our children, to make it back to heavenly father, to not have to go through the trails of this life but to make it all the way and he has". That struck me # 1 I dont think I could be that strong #2 Im selfish I want my children here with me, I just dont think I could handle it if I lost any of mykids. So Im feeling very blessed, I know my heavenly father loves me, and I pray he knows how strong I am and what I can handle, and he won't give me more then that!! So my wonderful family I loveyou with all my heart you are every thing to me you are the best, thank you so much for each of you, you have blessed and enriched my life in ways you will never understand.. To my friends thank you for the blessings you are in my life know you hold a very special place in my heart and I thank heavenly father for eachand every one of you, I don't know that I could get through the everydayness with out your kind words and encouragement, I love each of you!! To my wonderful husband, you are my world I love you with all my heart know how important you are in my life, thank you for bouying me up when I couldnt on my own, thank you for supporting me in all Ive evr done or all that I do you are amazing, You make me so happy and I feel so safe in your arms!! To my Heavenly father thank you for all my blessings thank you for know me as a person as an individual knowing my needs and being there for me, I love you!!
I am so blessed thank you everyone in my life for however you have touched me, I love you!!

No one should get up that early, but I did and I got ready to go run, my sweet hubby went and got me water and put it in the freezer so it would be cold out there for me, so I left got over to the church to meet Sarah and I forgot my stinkin water bottles that go in my pack Ugh!! That was the pits so I turned around went home and got my water. So I get BACK over to the church we leave Sarah's car there and start driving forget to look at the milage so we guess drop water at mile 11 and 6 and drive our last 6 to where we will park and Im looking at the milage and Im like no not down the big Veyo hill that hill has just made me so nervous well guess what WE GET TO THE BOTTOM OF THE HILL AND THATS WHERE WE HAVE TO PARK!!!

Tonight is back to school night, Im a little nervous because I know Im going to get roped into being room mom again, which I dont mind so much but man is it alot of work!! Monica was so proud to be going to school she could hardly wait such a big girl now!! When we pulled up to the school this morning we got out so I could walk her to her door and we got on the side walk and I kissed Jake bye then she says bye mom Im like oh no yu dont Im so walking you to class!! Ok if you want to!! Merissa yesterday walked into class and all of her little friends all got into her same class oh she was so excited and they were all sitting at the same table!! She was thrilled!! When Jake got to class they got to sit wherever they wanted to and he had several of his buddies in thee so he was pretty happy too!! Now Michale she was so dang excited to start high school ( yes you read that right High school my sweet baby girl is now in high school) she was ready to jump out of her skin, now me on the other hand was not so excited not that I dont want her to grow and progress I do its just that she cant be going to high school she's my baby girl!!

My workings

This Is what I worked on, during all those long hours of driving first I got my 2 photo mats done for a swap then the card for card club then I got the journal box done for another swap. Well then I was out of things to dowith the trip from denver still to go, we didnt find a store in denver we didnt look but we checked out grand junction and the only store closed so as we were driving I thought well why not create a little 6 x 6 book to add photo's to when I get home, so I had limited things because all I had was what i brought to work on the swaps and cards, then at one of our stops I remembered my stuff I got in Kansas so I got that out, then todayin about an hour I added photo's and a little bling and wala a little mini book for Monica. Very excited!!
