Thanks for the TAG Shawna!!!

I am really not good at these but my husband was still awake and helped me with 5 of the 6. Funny how one of these things I had no clue about!!

1) I am totally addicted to Diet Coke and Diet Dr. Pepper and have to have one every morning before 9:00am. Sad I know!!!

2) I have to smell all my food before I eat it or anything for that matter.

3)I have the ugliest toes known to man kind and tell my husband everytime he jokes about them that he'll be forkin over 10 grand to fix them one day!!!LOL

4) For the 1st 5 years of our marriage Brian tells me that he thought my poop smelled like Victoria Secret Angles perfrume then one day caaught me spraying it in the bathroom when I walked out! Now that I had no clue about!!! LOL

5) Sorry I am still laughing about the last one i just wrote!!
I have to sleep with a fan on even if it's 20 degrees outside! What I like the noise!!

6) I can't watch a scary movie or commercial or listen to a scary story. One night after watching the 6th sense I had to wake Brian up around 2 or 3 am and he had to give me a blessing-haven't watched a scary thing since!! who gets it next I pick Lacey or Mary

OUR PROPHET!!! Gordon B. Hinkley

I love this man with all of my heart and know without a shadow of a doubt that he is still holding his darling little wife!!!! What a great leader and example of love and charity that we had to look up to!! I will miss his humor and his leadership but know that he is extreamly happy! We love you President Hinkley!!!

Some of the Pictures are blury cause she was moving so much but these turned out pretty good!!


WE HAD A BLAST!!!! It was so much fun!!! Hannah was the best performer! She was so fun to watch and so nice. The girls loved it! We ate out and went shopping and the girls even got their own room at the Hotel and felt like "THE BIG KIDS" When we got up on Wed. they called our room which was right next door and said they had showered and were ready to go shopping! It was so funny, when we went over to their room they had their hair all done and their beds were even made!! WOW we were shocked!!! I am so glad we did this and that they are going to have the best memories of their very first concert!!

Ally and Aj were the ones who opened for Hannah!!! They were good too!!!
I love my girls!!!

Cambry's Surprise!!

She was so excited to get her ears pierced and then they did them one at a time!!! We had to hold her down after 15 min of trying to get her to do the other one!!! OH MY GOSH talk about drama! I felt so bad that she was so excited and then they couldn't do them at the same time!!! Poor thing! But now she is excited and LOVESher new look!!!

So last night I finished Cambry's homework with her and It felt so good to have 100 pieces of pasta counted and put in the bag sent home by her teacher that was stapled to a bright yellow piece of paper!!
Well today she walkes through the front door and is so upset she starts scalding me from the minute her eyes meet mine!!! "Mom I told you To cook the macaroni cook it mom not just put it in the bag!!! Well after calming her down she showed me the BRIGHT YELLOW piece of paper the teacher sent home last night and it says "snack items" and in ( ) it says M&M's raisins nuts froot loops and then they were going to pour into a big bowl and have the snack for their 100th day of school!!!
Yeah, I felt like my title of mother of the year had just been passed on!!!!


I am putting all of the kids pictures in their own folders and came across some of these pictures and loved them!!! I just can't believe how big they all are now!!!!

Bread Recipe

It's actually a cinnamon roll recipe from Paula Deen but my friend Abby just leaves out the cinnamon roll part!! It's very yummy!! Although one of these days I might just have to make the cinnamon rolls!! ;)
1/4 ounce package yeast
1/2 cup warm water
1/2 cup scalded milk
1/4 cup sugar

1/3 cup butter or shortning
1 tsp salt
1 egg
3 1/2 to 4 cups all-purpose flour( i use 2 cups white and 2 cups wheat)

In a small bowl disdove yeast in warm water and set aside. In a large bowl mix milk, sugar, melted butter, salt and egg. Add 2 cups of flour and mis till smooth. Add yeast mixture. Mis in remaining flour until dough is easy to handle. Knead dough on lightly floured surface for 5-10 min.Place in well-greased bowl. Cover and let rise until doubled in size 1 to 1/2 hours.
when doubled in size punch down dough and place in loaf pans.(I would say to cut this in half and put in two different pans cause mine seems to still be doughy in the middle if I put all of this in the same pan!! Just a thought) then let rise another 45 min! Yummy Yummy Enjoy!!!!
Heat oven to 350 for 30 to 35 mins.

FIX THE TRAIN BRIAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The boys came into Brian and asked him to put the train back together so they could play with it!!! He got sidetracked and this is what they subjected themselves to!!! American Girl dolls!! They are going to die when they see these pictures when they are 16!!!

My First loaf of Bread!!!!!

Here is my very first loaf of bread that actually turned out!!! How beautiful is this!!! I have to admit that when I cut into it, it was a little doughy so I had to put it back in for a little while!!! BUT, you have to understand my excitement that it is big and fluffy and not hard and the size of a brick!!! Yeah!! Thanks Abby for the recipe it was so good!!!!

Here goes nothing!!!! YIKES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So as part of my new year's resolution I wanted to get organized, well tonight I tackled probably my biggest challenge yet!!! THE PANTRY I must say that I had NO!!!! idea that there would be this much stuff!! My husband thinks I am NUTS for posting this most rediculous mess, but I had to let all of you out there with pantries starring you down that it can be done!! I promise! Isn't it pretty!!!

This is what was left over to go to the trash 3 hours after starting this task!! WOW
