Working Hard This Summer

Jayson and I wanted Jayden to learn some life skills and stay busy this summer instead of sit on the couch and run around with friends everyday, so he is working two jobs.  He works two days a week at Jayson's shop from 8-5 and the other three days he goes up to Springdale and does maintenance at the hotel for Teisha and Ryan.  He mostly works outside in Springdale, mowing, weeding, feeding animals, and helping fix things.  It has been hard on him and I'm sure he is actually looking forward to going back to school for the first time ever, but I'm thankful he has these opportunities.

Talented Husband

I am married to a very talented guy.  He can do anything, but his expertise lies with anything mechanical.  He loves to invent, build, and fix things.  He bought this pickup in January and has wanted to put wheels and tires on it ever since, but felt guilty.  He finally did it.  He is so talented and his baby looks great!  Now, I just wonder if I will be able to get in and out of it.
These are Jayson's pickups.  Yes, he is spoiled.




This is his brand new baby that he just lifted.

Donut Kind Of Night

I was craving homemade donuts all day, so I spent the evening frying and glazing donuts.  I got this amazing recipe about 4 years ago from a friend.  Of course, donuts only taste good fresh and I'm not a fan of store bought donuts.  The problem is I don't only eat one or two.

Birthday Girls

I say this every year, but it's unreal that it's birthday time again for these two beauties.  I sure love my amazing girls and am so thankful to be their momma.  My kids are my greatest blessing and if I never have a lot I'm ok because I have 4 amazing kids.  What more could I want or need?
These beauties are 22 and 24 and Teisha
is only 3 1/2 weeks away from her due date.
That little girl is getting big.

Katie's Bridal Shower

Our favorite girl, Katie Reed, is getting married next weekend, so her bridal shower was tonight.  She dated Dustin before he left on his mission and we just loved her.  We continued to have her over for dinner while he was gone and have stayed in touch with her ever since. We have always hoped they would end up together, but I guess not.  It was a little biter sweet.  We are happy for Katie, but sad to see her with someone else.

Jayson's Mom Is 76

I honestly never thought I would see this day.  Jayson's mom is 76.  She is so frail and fragile.  Her favorite place to eat is Chucka Rama, so since Jayson's niece is still here and Jayson's sister came to watch her grandkids, we all went to dinner to celebrate.

Fun Birthday Party

Jayson's nephew's wife is quite the partier.  She owns a catering business here and has 4 kids and doesn't miss a thing.  She is one of the most on the ball people I know.  She had an amazing birthday party for their adorable 1 year old.  The theme was hot air balloons and two of Jayson's nieces were there also and it was fun to see them.  One lives here now and the other lives in Provo.  I hadn't seen the one from Provo for about 6 years.  Jayson was out of town, so I went to represent out family.  It was fun visiting with everyone.  They also had all their neighbors there.



This is Myla, the adorable big sister.

Ellenie is sure what to do with that cake
but I'm sure big brother can help her.

She figured it out.
