Great times...

What a great week. Josh groban with my two oldest (and great friends) on Wednesday and Hit Machine with the whole family on Thursday. Best group EVER. What a great way to end a beautiful, spectacular, blessed Summer...







High school grad...

My very grown up-oh so wise boy has graduated high school. He did it two years early and we couldn't be prouder of him. He is my "fun fact" child. He knows all these little facts about various things and I always feel like I'm learning when we have discussions. He's a light to our home.

I passed...

I did it. I passed my exams and I can now practice as a Denturist. It seemed like I was in a dream trying to make this become a reality. The prayers and the love from others on my behalf is something I'll forever cherish. I wasn't alone during this test. I had Heavenly Father on my side. He opened doors for me. He never left my side. Now onto new chapters...

Vintage...

The coolest thing ever happened today. We were at the library and due to the fact that my kids are very aware of my vintage obsession, they alerted me to the fact that these magazines were being given away for free. 1949 and 1946. Um....AMAZING. I can't tell you how much I would love to have lived during this era. Reading all the ads about old timey refrigerators and gerber baby food, and "movie dancers" what is that anyway? Something very cool, I'm sure. If only I were born a little bit sooner...

Walking dead...

Okay, so I probably deserve the worst parent of the year award, because this summer, Chris, myself and the kids have become obsessed with the show Walking Dead. I didn't used to be "that" parent that let their small children watch gory, scary stuff. Halee and Austin weren't even allowed to watch Shrek or Sleeping Beauty when they were little. The older my teens got the harder it was to limit what my younger children see. So instead of playing "dolls" or "trucks" they are making homemade bows and arrows and pretending to kill zombies. Good times.

Camping 2016...

We had a wonderful three day adventure, boating and camping. We boated almost all day everyday...ate lots of junk food, played games, such as Old Maid, and even had a watermelon eating contest. Connor won that one by the way. Our tent blew over one of the nights due to 40 mph hour wind gusts which scared the poor girls to death. They and the boys ended up sleeping under the stars and Halee and I squished into the tiny two man tent. We made the best of it though and we are all already laughing about it. Thankful to pieces for wonderful friends and a beautiful family. Life is great.
