It’s time to make a change! From this . . . to this! Curly Cook complained that she didn’t like the way our family photo made her face look with googles on, so I changed our family photo for her. What do you think? I personally love the missing teeth and fedora, with GingerSnap’s radiant… Read More Post #23 – New Family Photo for the Blog
Paul is off to be Bishop. I love Tuesday nights. A nice meal together as a family, then family scripture reading and prayers, leads to the night being left to enjoy how we please before heading off to bed. The kids are all watching the last half of “What Katy Did” – a movie about a book… Read More Post #22 – Salmon Salad, Precious Friends and Guacamole!
This morning we had a yellow and blue sky with cotton-candy clouds. It was exquisite! I am grateful to be back carpooling for Seminary again.

Today was a good day! As a family, we made a “Family Goal” to complete together. We decided on going on a field trip, our second for the month of August – not bad, if I do say so myself. We each had a responsibility to fulfill, that led us to visiting Los Chorros Waterfalls… Read More Post #18 – It was a good day!
I have 40 minutes and hope to get this done before I need to get ready for our special guests tonight. We have invited a very special family over for dinner and FHE tonight. They are the cutest couple, Matthew and Stephanie, and they have the most adorable little boy, Isaac (you pronounce it E-sack).… Read More Post #17 – Change is hard!
Our family has a song that Paul loves to sing whenever we are cutting up fruit. Do you happen to know it too? Fruit Salad, Yummy, Yummy! by the Wiggles I was actually surprised when I went onto the internet to find the link to this and saw that they are still around! Although, they… Read More Post #16 – Fruit Salad, Yummy, Yummy!
Although this happened a week ago today, I felt it still needed to be remembered. I had hoped to write about it on Monday or Tuesday, but being sick became my highest priority this week. Now that I am feeling better, with the help of DoTerra Breathe Respiratory Blend (it is honestly the ONLY thing… Read More Post #15 – Wholesome Recreational Activities
Dear Wendi, This post is for you. This is a reminder for you to look back and remember when you were entering a very dark and unknown time in your life.
