90th Birthday Party

This last weekend we had my Dad’s 90th Birthday Party!  My dad is Amazing…he is still independent and lives on his own.  He does his own cooking, cleaning, laundry and garden!  He is a great inspiration and friend to all.  He is a wonderful example to all of his family and everyone loves him!Dad's 90th invite picture1-001 Continue reading

Waco, TX trip 2016

40th Anniversary Trip

My husband and I just got back from a 40th Anniversary Trip!  Our main destination was not to a tropical island, or a romantic European adventure, or some other world-wide spot, but rather it was to Waco, Texas…yes you heard me right…Waco, Texas and Magnolia Farms!

I love the show “Fixer Upper” and this was a dream trip for me!  I loved the family atmosphere and ALL of the people/employees were so friendly and helpful!  I was amazed at how friendly and kind everyone was no matter where we went in Texas!

I am a very lucky girl because I have the best dad in the world!  He is kind and never says anything bad about anyone!  He has been a wonderful example to me.  He is a very hard worker…he was a brick mason for his profession…and he taught me the value of work.mason hands

(I took this picture a few years ago for a photography class that I was taking and it is one of my favorites!)

He thinks of others and he has a soft heart.   He still grows a garden and shares with everyone, he lives on his own and does his own cooking, cleaning, laundry and yard work!  He is amazing!  He will be celebrating his 90th birthday this week and I think that is quite an accomplishment!dad

Happy Father’s Day Dad!  I Love You!

I am double lucky because my kids also have the best dad!  I am married to my best friend… he also is a very hard worker, he is very driven and he thinks of others!  He has been the kids #1 fan and supporter in all their sports, scouting and school.  He loves his children and grandchildren and would defend them in any situation that needed defending!  He is a great example and leader and we all love him!

I know that some of you do not have ideal situations with your fathers or husbands and that Father’s day is a difficult day…I hope that you can find joy and happiness in a friend, uncle or brother and celebrate the good men in your lives!

 I hope we can all give the good men in our lives a big hug today and wish them a very Happy Father’s Day!

Thanks for Visiting Today!

St. George Weekend Feb

St. George Get-Away

Before I tell you about my St. George Get-Away I need to explain my spelling problem from the Visiting teaching post.  I was sick last week when I was trying to get it posted and I worked on it in the middle of the night, apparently I was not thinking straight because I misspelled two words!!!  Ha Ha!   I corrected it…but not until we got back from our fun weekend!St. George Weekend Feb Continue reading

Our 24th of July Family Party

We had a fun 24th of July family party last weekend.  It was great because we had our entire family!  That does not seem to happen as much as it used to when the kids were all smaller…funny how that happens!

We went up to our family property for a little fishing, 4-wheeling, games and a great time being with one another.July 24th,2015 Continue reading

 My husband and I had two of our grandsons staying with us for a few days while their parents were away on a business trip.  They were so much fun and they were soooo good!  I kept commenting how well they got along…unlike my two oldest boys, when they were that age…that could not be in the same room for 15 minutes without a problem!  :)cute grandkidsAren’t they a couple of heart-breaker boys!

4-Wheeling Weekend

Happy Monday everyone!  

I hope that you all had a great Easter Weekend and got to enjoy at least part of it with your family and those that you love.  I really enjoyed watching General Conference for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints this weekend and I feel renewed and ready to go forth again!  I also enjoyed watching the mini series-“AD The Bible Continues.”  I loved the first show…what do you think about it?

My husband and I have a property in Upton, Utah.  It is a hunting property that has tons of roads and trails to explore on!  Our family loves to go up there to look for deer, go fishing, hiking,  having picnics, exploring, hunting for horn sheds, and to ride the ATV’s!4-wheeling in Upton-spring 2015 Continue reading
