Baby Shower For Teisha

It's crazy that my baby is due to have a baby in 6 weeks.  The official due date is July 5th and Teisha is getting nervous about getting the nursery put together, so Tianna and I had a baby shower for her on Saturday.  Tianna wanted to do it at her house since her main living area is a little bigger than mine.  She did all the decorating and invitations and I did the food.  Friday night we cut up celery, carrots, and watermelon and Eric and Jayson even helped out.  We didn't have as big of a turn out as we wanted because it's such a busy month with end of school and sports and graduation.  Lot's of ladies have mailed cards and are bringing gifts later, but we did have 14 ladies and we played to fun games.  There was lots of croissant sandwiches, fruit, punch, and cookies left, so I didn't have to cook Sunday dinner.

These sisters are the cutest and I can't wait
until they both have babies.

Love my beautiful girls.

Tianna is the best decorator.

Tianna Graduated From Dixie State

I'm so proud of Tianna.  She has worked so hard!  She graduated today with her bachelor's in Accounting, while being married, taking care of a beautiful 4 bedroom home and yard, working for her daddy as his right hand and office manager, and studying hard to get good grades.  I couldn't be more proud of the hard working young lady she is.

HOORAY!!!! I Did It!

HOORAY!!!!  I finished my first semester at Dixie State and I got all A's except in English and Library.  It is such a great feeling to be done for a couple of months.  I worked so hard and spent lots of hours at the college.  I can actually say I really enjoyed it and am excited to get back into it in the fall.
I took Jayden to Taco Bell to celebrate.

I'm a happy lady!

Another Birthday For Jayson

It seems the older we get our birthdays come around faster and faster.  Jayson is a May day guy.  I can't believe he is 46 and still looks like he's 30.  He never ages.  I post pictures of him on Facebook and I always get comments like isn't that the same picture every year?  I cooked him one of his favorite dinners on Sunday night and we had the usuals over for dinner plus his old boss and his wife from Lovell.  They live down here now, so it's fun to have them over once in a while.   Monday night Jayden, Jayson, and I went to dinner at his favorite for some sushi and steak and lobster.

I can't believe I was able to keep 46 candles lite.
For a minute I thought we might have to call
the fire department and when he blew them
out I thought the smoke alarms were all going to
go off.  The top of the cake was covered in wax!
No grey hairs and no wrinkles.  He is a lucky guy!

Cute Kids

My sisters kids are so cute and I love it when she texts me pictures and videos of her cuties.  Brinlee had her end of year dance recital tonight.  I was also going through my desk today and found these papers that Brinlee and Sienna had written while they were here a few weeks ago.  I love finding these precious treasures and having these memories on my blog.

She is ready to dance!

These two cuties.

Relaxing Day By The Pool

Teisha and Ryan have been nannying for a doctor and his wife with 5 kids for the past two years.  They were in their ward when they were going to school and first married and taught a couple of their boys in primary, so when they go one their get aways Teisha and Ryan stay at their house for the week.  They had the kids this past week, so Saturday Teisha invited me over to their beautiful home to enjoy a day by the pool.  It was a much needed break from school and busy life.

I Live In The Best Place

I can never say enough how much I LOVE where I love.  It will be 12 years in July and I haven't regretted moving here one day.  I have to pinch myself sometimes and wonder how I got so lucky to live in such a great place.  The sun shines almost everyday of the year and that is one of the most important things to me.  It makes me soooo happy to feel the warmth and see the sunny, bright blue sky.  The people are great, it's a beautiful desert with palm trees, (another one of my loves), and lots of swimming pools. (I also love water, as long as it's warm or even hot). The only thing we are missing is the beach.  While everyone else is still getting snow and cold, I'm enjoying a beautiful yard that I've been working in since February.
