He got scuba certified last year and joined my sister, Bobe and her family in their scuba post.
We had to come up with 650 dollars. Which is a great price for flight, food, and lodging for 8 days.
Jordan sold almost everything from his room and talked his brothers and sisters into selling their
What's a garage sale without TONS of shoes?
Everyone with their favorite Sonic Drink!
And Adam with his spidey man mask!
We tried to make him sell it, he just couldn't part with it!
Lots of fun was had, lots of laughs were heard, and Jordan was able to go on his scuba trip!
Check back soon.....
.....Scuba Pics are coming soon!

Does this little guy look very sweet?Looks are very deceiving!!
One day, just like all the others, I'm running through our upstairs, 2 story apartment, which was a mere 800 sq feet, searching for Kyle and frantically saying his name--okay, YELLING his name. Could not hear him, could not see him. Found him up in the bedroom window sill leaning against the glass, eating a cookie.
Another time, same thing but found him on the counter, in the kitchen, huddled in the corner by the microwave, yep, eating a cookie.
If there was something to get into, Kyle was there!! He found anything and everything that he shouldn't have. Jessica was the perfect big sister. With her dancing and singing through the house he could get away with anything. Kyle didn't have to talk. If there was something he wanted, he got it for himself.
Everyday was a new adventure with Kyle. Those few short mischief years seemed like forever. All of the trouble he got into as a little guy was worth it. He turned out to be quite the kid. Very loving, and very kind-hearted.
This sweater vest makes him look like a choir-boy! He'll love me for this one!
Kyle, Happy 22nd birthday!!! You have always made me very proud to be your mom. Thank you for all your love and kindness! You have always been such a great example to our family! It is so awesome to see how you have grown in the gospel and I'm so very grateful for your testimony! You are an amazing son, brother, husband and father!! I love you bud!!

11 months old-her first perm!
P.S. You should hear how she dogs on me for dressing her and doing her hair like this.
Carson turned 9 on March 12th!
We had the best birthday party.
A never ending salad bar,
A rocket pinata, stuffed full of candy!
But best of all, we had great entertainment from Bobe and Carson!
I think they should take their act on the road!
What do you think?
Carson--Grammie LOVE, LOVE, LOVES You!!
To Tell The Truth i Totally Think T's are Terrific!!!
T is for Trolls!
Not that I really love them, but I put it on here
for my friend Becky! Because she makes me laugh
and I'm trying to return the favor!
T is for Twighlight,
I've read each book 2 x's,
Seen the movie 5.
I can't even begin to pick a favorite character,
but if I was forced,
Jacob would have my vote.
Although I did get a vampire fettish after I saw the movie!
T is for Tanning!
Nothing like the feel of the sun on your skin,
toes in the sand,
and listening to the waves!
T is for Temples
Click here for an awe inspiring moment.
About 8 years ago, a little girl, about 6 years old, got up and bore her testimony.
She said that she would be going to the Temple when she grew up, if she behaved herself!
That is my goal too!
T is for Tulips!
Who doesn't love flowers? I love all flowers,
but I think tulips fall somewhere in my top 3.
They are such a beautiful display of nature's creation!
T is for Treadmill
Which I have a love hate relationship with!!
I dread getting up and getting on it in the mornings,
But love the way it makes me feel afterwards!!!
I'm sure I've missed many more "T's" that I love,
but I can't think of anymore. If you would like to do a letter blog, just let me know, and I will assign you a letter, like Y!! JK!

I love it because that sweet little Tweety always gets the best of Sylvester.
Okay so I hate cats.
When I see a cat crouched down to attack a bird, I scare the bird away so the cat can't get the bird, unless it is a pigeon. I figure that any cat that catches and eats a pigeon is going to die anyway because pigeons are almost as sick and wrong as a cock roach.
Anyway, back to the reason for the blog...
...On Saturday, Carson and I were out weeding my flower garden, for those of you that have seen my "flower garden", yes, I do call it a flower garden!
An hour later, Jessica and Kelsie show up and we are outside talking and the cat comes back. Jessie loves kitties and starts to talk to the cat. So I tell them the psycho cat story. Jessie says, it just wants to play. She picks it up and lays in her arms like a baby, purring the loudest purr I've ever heard! Then it starts to meow this horrible, Psycho Cat, yeeeowww, and the cats, 3 big cats come running, yes running, from across the street. The big ones are acting bugged but don't dare get too close. Jessie puts the cat down and bends down and starts petting it. One of the big cats make a run past her. I thought it was going to attack. But it doesn't. The kittie rolls around on the ground all squirly and puts it's ears back and HISSES then bites her!
I tell her to go wash it and clean it up.
I had a dream last night that Jessie came over yesterday with Carson!
Needless to say, I woke up. Pretty scary!!
Carson, Happy 9th Birthday!!
You are such a good grandson!
Grammie loves you sooooo MUCH!!
I hope that you will always enjoy pulling weeds with Grammie!

...... Less than an hour later they were having me walk from a regular room to a new fandangle "labor, delivery, recovery room". Yes, 20 years ago, this was a NEW thing.
Feeling like "it" was going to drop out onto the floor at any time, I stopped when I got half way across the hall and said "How much further?". Nurse replies, "just across the hall". Trying to keep my legs together and squeezing to keep the baby in, I take tiny baby shuffles to the room "just across the hall". I sit on the edge of the bed to take a breather before trying to put my body in the bed, I say to "its" dad, "it's coming!" He looks down at this time to see the baby crowning! He then yells, "it's coming," to the nurse that was walking out the door. She comes back to see the baby crowning and starts to yell, "We need a doctor in here!"
Needless to say my little Kelsie Lou was not waiting for any doctor. She was born with a little owie across the middle of her nose where I sat on her face!!!
Pretty cute for having her face sat on!!
Happy Birthday my sweet Kelsie Lou!
I love you more than I can ever express!
You have been such a great blessing to me. I feel so fortunate to have called you mine!
You have always brought joy to our family. Thank you for being you!
Here's to another 20 years!
Kelsie wanted Pazookies for her birthday cake. Needless to say I could not find 6" round pans anywhere. We had square Pazookies. Each candle is a decade!

Especially a chocolate one!
Our family is doing our own version of "The Biggest Loser". There are 10 of us involved with $250 at stake and our contest is going on for 12 weeks.
We are on our 2nd week! Right now there is alot of fun and excitement. With a bit of sabotage mixed in! (Alex)!
I'm hoping this will give me the incentive I need to diet and excercise. 10 days into it and so far so good! One day at a time right?!
Alex won the first week but only half of us weighed in--I believe the other half were scared!!!
Curse you Alex! I will get you next week !!!

Kind-a like the fall in Utah, without the beauty of the multi-colors.
That's what I miss the most about my hometown in Utah. I love when the trees turn colors. I love to look at the colors all across the mountainside. It makes me want to get out paint and a canvas and start painting. But since I was not blessed with that talent. . . .
Anyway, this is a pic of what happens in the winter in Arizona. Then the leaves drop.... and shortly after they bud up and blossom.
