This Year

I am making one change. I have been saying the same thing for the past….. years? This time it is REALLY the year that I am going to make it happen. You doubters can just keep doubting. Actually I am not that into making new years resolutions because I figure if something is worth doing… Continue Reading


It’s all good.

Jonathans co-worker mentioned that sometimes my blog makes it sound like I feel like life is really hard. Hmmmm. Could it be because some of my posts are titled “Boo Hoo”, “Had a bad day”, “Jealous” or “Honey I crashed the car” ? Maybe! 🙂 If I really wanted to sound sad I should add… Continue Reading


Happy Birthday to Me.

The older I get the less I care about celebrating birthdays- but you cant NOT do anything when you have kids who are still super excited about birthdays. I have been writing in my little brown journal at night, trying to not overlook or underestimate the Tender Mercies (TM) in my life but tonight instead… Continue Reading


I can be Batman

But its not easy. I would rather let Jonathan be Batman. You know, the one from the best Batman movie ever? The one with the really awesomely creepy and scary Joker? At the end of the movie (if you need a recap) we find out that the town hero has turned bad and done bad… Continue Reading


Honey I crashed the car.

This pic says it all, and the roof even popped back up a little when they turned the car over! So we were going to a wedding reception. I had made the wedding cake but since I dont deliver, it was already there in one piece. Jonathan was at a camp out with Jack, and… Continue Reading


To touch His robe.

Dear Elder Bednar, When I found out you were coming to the Sacramento area and our Stake would get to hear from you I was really looking forward to it. (I think it’s been 35 years since we had an apostle speak here!) I know we have been hearing you and all the other wonderful… Continue Reading


Because they thought it looked awesome.

I find millions of selfies on the different devices around the house. Usually I delete 49 of the 50 taken (they can’t seem to ever take just one…) But when Ben, (following the lead of the bigs) learned how to set wallpaper (lock AND/OR home screen) it went to a whole new level. I’ve started… Continue Reading


What I would have said…..

5 Comments

In our church they do this strange thing that strikes fear, or at least greatly increases the heart rates of its members. In front of a couple thousand people at Stake Conference our leaders, when inspired to do so, will call up individuals to speak in front of the whole congregation. No warning- no preparation-… Continue Reading


What they said and did (that I don’t want to forget!)

I’ll just keep adding as they come (or as I remember!)…… 7/15 Ben and Ty On the way home from a playdate with Camille who Ty had been giving hugs and kisses (on the arm) to before we left. Her mom texted me that Camille wanted to send Ty a note because she liked his… Continue Reading


Prayer and Scripture Chart

Natalie and I came up with this idea. We needed something simple, that would help us get in a better habit of personal prayers. I was realizing that I’m…. old and I still dont remember to say my morning prayers. I wanted to not only get in the habit myself but I wanted my children… Continue Reading
