Like Father - Like Son

My computer is broken and my camera is acting funny - But my sister took these great pictures for me! Hopefully the electronic wizard will get my computer up and running and then retrieve all my pictures. At that time I will update all the unblogged events and past adventures! Until that time, what offering might entice the computer Gods?

We love you Bear!

A New Project

Doesn't every kitchen need a fantastic chalkboard door? I thought it would be fun to write shopping lists, recipes, or fun quotes on. What do you think?

Mount NeverRest

Because of this ever growing mountain...

I have been living in here...

doing this....

over and over again and again!
I am quite positive life has more glorious things in store for me - if only I can just reach the summit.

I guess I should be grateful that I don't have to do it using this!

Excuse me...I just heard the dryer beep, dark colors and jeans you're load number 11.


I've been in a funk. My camera has been in a funk and my computer has been in a funk.
....I'm coming out of it. I'm sure posts will follow.

Sweet Sixteen!

Happy Birthday Kenisha! Can it really be true- Sixteen?

A 'get out of school early pass' started her birthday day off. I picked her up and we headed out to the spa for manicures and pedicures. After we were finished with our pampering we were off to spend the rest of the night shopping and finding just the right unique items. Kenisha has her own individual style, if someone else has it she doesn't want it! So instead of trying to find just the right gifts, we decided it would be fun to have a Pick Your Own Presents Day. We had a great time and found some cute things.
Thanks for letting me be a part of your special day! We love you!

Do these two silly girls look like they could consume an entire 9x13 cake by themselves? Well they did! What a great way to be initiated into the Sweet Sixteen Club, good idea Christine!

and He Has Struck Again

Sometime in the wee midnight hours that sneaky little leprechaun invaded our fridge and deposited an assortment of items in his favorite hue. You know, the legend says if you consume green milk, delivered by a leprechaun himself, on the morning of the emerald sun you will be transformed into one of the little red bearded, clover loving, knicker wearing, rainbow lurkers...

I'm starting to see some signs, Should I be worried ???

Maybe the green eggs and ham we will be having for dinner, along with our version of 'Irish Beer' will reverse the adverse side effects?

An Irish Prayer

May God give you...
For every storm, a rainbow,
For every tear, a smile,
For every care, a promise,
And a blessing in each trial.
For every problem life sends,
A faithful friend to share,
For every sigh, a sweet song,
And an answer for each prayer.

Wherever you go and whatever you do,
May the luck of the Irish be there with you.

Wishing you all a Happy Saint Patrick's Day tomorrow!

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!
In case you didn't know,
Valentines Day rule #1: You eat whatever you want for breakfast!

Can You Feel the Love?

Thanks for the super cute Valentine card printouts!

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!

Oh Where, Oh Where Has My Little Cord Gone???

Oh where, oh where could it be? I cannot find my camera cord anywhere, how on earth can I update my blog without pictures? I have searched far and wide, inside and out, over and under, and I am stumped! Maybe it is time to conquer the pit of despair, I dare not think it ventured into that horrible room. We may not come out alive, wish us luck, I'm going in.

So You Want to be a Photographer

Bear and Kolby absolutely love taking pictures. They could do it all day if they could only talk someone into being their model for hours. Me and Kenny somehow ended up being their subjects. Here are a few of their best work, What do you think???
