Another Family Tree

I've wanted to make a Family Tree for my dad's parents for a while.
My grandma has a passion for genealogy and she has put in a lot of time updating our family line.
I had the opportunity to spend a lot of time in their home while I was growing up and I'm so grateful I did. My grandma would let my cousins and I earn $$ cleaning her house so we could ride the bikes to King's to buy fake fingernails... then she would get mad at us for wasting our money ;)
There were many hours spent on the horses with Grandpa and he's the one that taught me how to drive. He started all of the grand kids around 9 yrs old.
I'm so grateful for my grandparents and the great people that they are.
My dad is the baby of nine so he's got a pretty big family.
Happy Mother's/Father's Day Grandma and Grandpa!!
I love you :)


7 month update...

I can't believe our little man is already 7 months, almost 8 now. I felt like he was still a baby saying he was 6 months, but 7 months really isn't "baby" anymore.
*Sitting up
*Eating rice cereal for lunch and dinner
*Taking a bottle if mom is gone
*Favorite song "Patty Cake"
*Likes to splash Tydon in the tub
*Still taking 3 naps a day
*Sleeps from 8pm-7am
*Starting to army crawl
*Teething Time!!
He's been really good and they haven't seemed to bother him.
Getting ready to go shopping with the girls :)
Has crazy fuzz when he wakes up!
Such a happy boy!

Mother's Day Project...

We stayed in UT this year for Mother's Day.
It was a beautiful day and I got spoiled by these boys...
I'm so grateful to be a Mother and am especially grateful for the Mother's in my life.
I look up to my own mother and I'm grateful for the woman that she is.

My mom is driving down today with my grandma {yahoo!}
{So I had an extra week to get my gift together}

My mom's hobby is Barrel Racing and she loves anything to do with horses.
So when I saw this idea I knew it would be perfect :)

FIRST: Find a few of these...
And some of these...
SECOND: Ask your husband nicely to weld them together

THIRD: Grab some spray paint and get to work
Finished Product... Perfect display in the front of any cowgirl's tack shed :)
I hope she likes em'


I was the Enrichment Leader in our last ward and it was such a fun calling. I worked with some amazing women who were talented, motivated and super fun!!

It seems like most wards and stakes are no longer doing Super Saturdays, but as women we still have a NEED to create... so as a committee we came up with an idea for an activity to allow us the opportunity to both SERVE and CREATE in one activity.

The 2 months prior to the activity we gathered donations from the ward to help fill Humanitarian Kits to be donated to the church. We had enough supplies to complete 25 Hygiene Kits and 25 School kits.

So as the sisters arrived at the activity, they helped put kits together...We also put together personal heaters
Then we talked about emergency plans...
Then it was time to CREATE...
Our main craft was Family Home Evening magnet boards.
This is where our idea came from.
These are the board kits all ready to go!
We also made interchangeable watch bands...
Gordon's niece helped me and we came up with a few different options.
Also {$5}
Watch Faces were sold separately...

We sold about 200 kits!!
A couple of the girls in the committee are experienced with Photoshop and one of them made a template for Family Proclomations.
So we had a table set-up with computers for people to create their own proclamation.

We had such a great turnout!!
I am FOREVER grateful to all of the sisters on the committee and everyone that helped to make this activity a success.

The BUMP and NO sugar bugs...

Last week I came home to this...
Tydon had tripped and fell and hit the door jam...
It immediately swelled up...
The next day, the swelling had gone down and
over the next couple days the "sweet" bruise showed up
He still has a small scrape, but the bruise is finally almost gone
{So glad he didn't end up with stitches}


Today we went in for Tydon's FIRST official DENTIST appointment.
He was sooo good!
We prepped him most of the week by talking about what they would do.
He held so still for x-rays
Didn't mind the scrubbing...
flossing... no big deal ;)
Dentist said everything looks great!
Best part... Buzz Light Year toothbrush!


What to do on a Saturday morning...

One of my {BEST} friends just had a baby.
And what does every little baby NEED?!

First you find some fabric
Cut it up...
Sew it together...
{I can't wait to meet her in person}
Congrats Kate and Germ!!



Every Monday...
This is where you'll find Tydon...

He LOVES it!!
Videos to come...
