Words to Live By

Goodness is the only investment that never fails.
~Henry David Thoreau~

Character is doing what's right when nobody is looking!

Circumstances do not make you what you are... they reveal what you are!
~John C. Maxwell~

You can stand tall without standing on someone, you can be a victor without having victims. ~Harriet Woods~

You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.
~James D. Miles~

No change in circumstances can repair a defect in character!
~Ralph Waldo Emerson~

Character is not made in a crisis it is only exhibited.
~Robert Freeman~

My grandfather once told me that there are two kinds of people: those who work and those who take the credit. He told me to try and be in the first group; there was less competition there. ~Indira Gandhi~

Love All, Trust Few, do wrong to None.
~William Shakespeare~

and last but not least...

There is no pillow so soft as a Clear Conscience!
~French Proverb~

I'm proud of you Kenny!

Do you have plates also?

In fact I'd like to buy an entire table setting!

This was my Valentines Day Breakfast, bowl and all! Thank You Baby!

Sluffing ???

Disclaimer: ( Gentri would like all who view this to know that she was in the process of straightening her hair and was just taking a break - hence the weird hairdo.)

The Thursday before Valentines Day was deemed an official sluff day for our family. Between all of our hectic schedules, it was the only available day we could attend the Draper Temple open house together. Also, finished valentines were needed on Friday and they were not even in the start phase yet! So after thinking it over, I decided to let the kids stay home from school. (Except Kolby it was his preschool Valentine party and he couldn't miss that!) We worked on Valentines and hung out in our pajamas all morning. Then later that afternoon we went to the open house together as a family.
4 Unexcused absences didn't keep us from having a great day!

Just A Little Taste of Vintage Bliss

If you want a full bite visit

Years have gone by,

But when you reunite with good friends it just seems like yesterday. Here's to lasting friendships, classic memories, and unforgettable moments. I had a great time seeing you all, can't wait till we get together again!

Oh Happy Day, The Cord Has Been Found!

I delved into the Pit of Despair and came out alive, but cordless! So after sending the children on a mission of their own, the cord has been retrieved from the playroom downstairs. Who'd have thought, don't ask me how it ended up down there. I'm sure it had a good time being a dog leash, or a Indiana Jones whip, or whatever imaginative thing the children thought up for it. Either way I'm just glad to have it back, now on to blogging!
