I ♥ My Family

The kids came by for a visit over the weekend before and during their time up on Kolob Mountain.  It is always so wonderful to be together!
Mackenzie took both babies and a stroller up to the Narrows!  What an amazing woman she is.

Look how our little River Rae has grown....
and she ♥ her Nana

Vintage Halloween

I have wanted a Halloween Clock for years!

Look what I just found on Pinterest!

And I will just betcha.........that I can make it!

My "Labor of Love"

For my son-in-law Joe's birthday this month I gave him a very important and priceless gift!

His "Family Genealogy"

In case some of you didn't know.....well.....I have a passion for genealogy.  OK....you could really say that I have a pretty serious obsession with genealogy. 

I started this project in December of 2011 and figured that I spent about 720 hours doing research and then designing this amazing "Book of Remembrance" for him.

A great big thanks to his folks for sending photos and stories of alot of his ancestors! 

I love you Joe!

Never Enough Time!

Feeling overwhelmed lately.........

But... I am grateful for my many blessings...

Don't feel much like blogging!

I hate not having the time to do the things that bring me joy!

Sometimes, that means doing absolutely nothing!

Christmas in July ♥♥♥

It's a weekend that I look forward to all year!

Here's the website but really... you need to just leave the QVC channel on all day long!

Camping Up on Cedar Mountain

The fourth of July is always a time when the kids head up to Cedar Mountain for some cooler temperatures.  (cooler than Vegas).....
They love spending time with Grammy Pammy and Papa Scott.

Yes... they slept in their tent where it got down to 57 degrees!
Sounds so wonderful to me.. as it was a cool 109 here today in Zion.

Homemade Firepit

This awesome project is compliments of my childhood friend Deb. 
How super clever is this?


Counting down...8 Thursdays til Kickoff...

Find Your Joy

"Happiness comes from spiritual wealth, not material wealth. Happiness comes from giving, not getting. If we try hard to bring happiness to others, we cannot stop it from coming to us also.
To get joy, we must give it, and to keep joy, we must scatter it." John Templeton

Treating Myself

Yesterday after I had done some yard work, washed all my windows and screens, cleaned the house and prepared my lesson for church............well, I treated myself to a movie.

Haven't been to movie in awhile......

I have been waiting for the new Spiderman Movie!

It was amazing..........and it was in 3D!  Had I been living under a rock?  How did I not know this?

Brooke's movie review is "Two Thumbs Up"

Say It Ain't So.........

That darn Miami Heat is still trying to win me over!

~And now they take one of my most beloved Celtic players from my team!

O, That I Wish I Were An Angel

My lesson at Church this week is amazing and this video takes it to a whole new level.  Please enjoy!


How grateful I am for the Gospel of Jesus Christ and for the joy, the peace, the comfort and all the many blessings it brings to my earthy life!

Missing My Daddy.......

Our fathers are the model of God in our lives, and we owe them a debt that we can never fully repay.

I can't hardly believe that it has been twelve years.  I simply do not know where the years have gone.  Some days it feels like forever...and other times it feels like just yesterday. 

Miss you ♥ Miss you ♥ Miss you

RIP ....Andy and Barney

In Memory Of two Legends That Made America Laugh For Over 50 Years !!! Gone But Not Forgotten Andy Griffith 1926–2012 & Don Knotts 1924–2006 Thanks For The Great Memories.
