While in St. George we did a Sunday hike at Dixie Rock before leaving and then took the kids down to tour Brigham Youngs house. It was a great weekend;)

This cool cove reminds me of little alcoves in art museums. How much would you pay for this piece of art???
I'm not sure but I think this statue is missing a leg.

Zach gives a big thumbs up for this hike.

Climbing in the crevasse.

All the kids holding up the rock for us to get by. They are so strong. :)

Jenna and Val.


Zach and Brooke.
While we were in St. George we got to go on a date night. ( I love having a 12 yr old. ) To a super cool super yummy Steak house. Where we had Cheese Fondue and Steak they serve to you raw on a hot stone and you cook it as done as you want. With dipping sauces on the side. It was sooooo good.

Jared and Valerie

Kyle and Gina

Danny and Betsy
Zach and Me (Kate)
We took a trip to St. George this weekend (Finally) to see Jared and Val's place ( I think they have been there 3 Yrs. ) But Brooke missed Kamri so mush she finally convince daddy to take her;)

I was having a little fun playing with my cartoon setting on my I phone. The girls liked the way they looked and kept posing.

Kamri looks like she is playing a invisible flute and Brooke looks like I didn't do it. Those girls were being so funny.

Not sure what invisible thing Kamri is holding but Brooke seems to see it too. Can you see it???

You can't be eating, munching and grazing if your hands are busy with something you don't want dirty;)

This is my latest stitching project and am proud to say I've been making my own patterns with clip art i've googled. I was inspired by the pictures on the set of the Celebrity Apprentice of cool antique chairs. I don't know if you can tell but it says Sit long Talk much.

This one I did a while ago. Also a pattern I created. I love Fleur de lis and flourishes. My husband makes fun of me and says why are you putting the Scout symbol all over the house. LOL I guess I am just really supportive of my little scout Brady;)

I also made a better one of this same thing for my cousin Deana for her birthday. I almost traded her cause her frame is nicer;)

P.S. I hate my pink walls so don't look too closely! Hopefully we can paint this summer and for sure will post that later.

These last two are in my daughters room she has a Paris theme we have been working on for a while. It isn't quite ready to be revealed yet. We have just a few more project to finnish then I will post it all later.

So now you know get on it and happy stitching;)

Don't mind my rag a muffin Brooke. She had no school and was too busy having fun playing and searching for gold and Leprechauns.
Shamrock mini pancakes

For St. Patricks day we had green waffles and little shamrock mini pancakes. They were a hit and scarfed down before I could get the camera out. But there was plenty when Avery showed up. She would shove the whole thing in her mouth at once. She is the cutest stinker ever!

My little stud bud is 10!

We went to dinner at Brick Oven with the Alvey's side for Brady's birthday this year.

All he wanted was money to go shopping for his birthday. ( I'm sure he wanted to make sure we got just what he wanted ) So on Saturday we took him and he got a Real big boy base ball bat and a ball, A couple of PSP games and we got him the pass of all passes for Seven peaks this year;) His Grandma and Grandpa Alvey got him a Nerf flag football set he really wanted. Glad warm weather is around the corner.

Then the next night we had our friends and grandma Moore over for cake and Ice cream. And now he has more money to go shopping with. I hope he thinks about it and doesn't blow it on crap.

I can't believe he is 10! Love you STUD;)

For Dr. Susses Birthday the kids school is have a crazy hat day and parade.
Couldn't miss how cute they looked.

Jenna even painted her Justin Bieber 3D glasses to match her hat.
Brady and his Elmer Fud hat.
And Brooke borrowed a cute hat from her best big friend Emilee.

Avery wanted to join in she thought all the hats were silly. She wanted to keep the hat so I couldn't get a good picture cause she kept running off;)
