Holiday Mother & Daughter Cookie Contest & Exchange

Monday, April 3rd, 2017 in About Me, Parties, Uncategorized

The girls and I have been floating around this idea of doing a holiday cookie contest for a few years. I don’t know what made us finally do it this year but it sure was fun! I learned a few new things I’d like to do next year, ways to changed it. I guess you […]

Holiday Excursions

Monday, April 3rd, 2017 in About Me

  Salt Lake City has a lot of fun things going on during the holiday season. The museums, symphonies, theaters, etc. have fun holiday events to go to. I tried to be better this year about picking and choosing. Normally I just want to make it to everything! So this doesn’t look like I scaled […]

Holiday Piano Concert

Sunday, April 2nd, 2017 in About Me

Abby & Cameron had their holiday piano concert. They were rushing from a dance performance and Cameron chose to play her piano piece in her dance costume. Abby did not want to so had a dress packed. It was a busy day so I am proud of them for being able to pull it off! […]

Party & Present Time!

Sunday, April 2nd, 2017 in About Me

I have always wanted to make homemade vanilla and had a friend make a batch that she was raving about. She gave me good directions and I decided to do it for teacher & neighbor gifts. It didn’t make as much as I thought or maybe I should have bought smaller bottles. So only about […]

Deck the Halls & Our Company’s Party

Sunday, April 2nd, 2017 in About Me

Last holiday season I overdid it and wasn’t feeling very well from it. During the winter months I have been over looking and coordinating the remodel of a building for our business in Salt Lake. It was very intense so I wanted to do one thing to help me during the holiday season. I have […]

Abby & Cameron are on a dance team called PEEPs at Utah Dance Artists. They have the most wonderful teachers (we love you Ms Heidi & Ms Leslie!) and such a fun group of kids to dance with. The holidays are fun because they get to perform their holiday dances at four places in the […]

Thanksgiving in California

Saturday, April 1st, 2017 in About Me

We haven’t been to California in a few years and got invited for Thanksgiving. So we hopped on a plane and went! It was nice to be on a plane without a crying child. I still have two kids that I have to watch their feet. And that somehow need to pee 10 times on […]

Halloween Fun 2016

Monday, February 20th, 2017 in About Me

We did a few other things for Halloween this year. Going to the Leonardo for their “Spooky Science” exhibit is always a must. When I was editing this photo below, I told Abby, “I am editing a photo of you in the Ghostbuster outfit touching a real human brain. And that is about the weirdest […]

Ghostbuster Halloween 2016

Monday, February 20th, 2017 in About Me

Remember how much we loved the Ghostbuster movie? The girls agreed to do a Ghostbuster theme for Halloween. And BOY DID WE DO A GHOSTBUSTER THEME FOR HALLOWEEN! I searched for pilot uniforms that were tan that I could add some reflective tape to but never could find any. So I found hunting coveralls that […]

Things I Loved This Fall

Saturday, February 18th, 2017 in About Me

It has been not my favorite home school year because of the schedules we have. The times that Reagan is supposed to be at school and dance. Then the times that Shae should be at her kindergarten extra circular activities. Then Cameron and Abby’s schedules. Nobodys schedules mesh. I set up this school year to […]
