It's over!

What a crazy week, but I'm finally done with my classes for the summer, papers written and all and we have all the talks/presentations out of the way. Just in time for our family Reunion that actually. So I'll post on that when it's all over with. Summer is a flyin'!

Things as they really are

Tyler and I were asked to present at a tri-stake youth activity this week on Elder Bednar's talk "Things as they really are." I've been thinking, and praying for the last two weeks on how to address this sensitive subject. If you have time, read the article if you haven't already, and give me some thoughts on the subject. I'm really interested to see what others have gotten out of this amazing talk.

love this set up

No grass in the pool and it's like one giant play pen. The deck comes right off of the kitchen so it means easy access. Couldn't ask for a better set up for the girls

Bar D

We went to a place called the Bar D chuckwagon in Durango Colorado. It is such a fun place, good food, good entertainment. We left the two little ones with friends because it would have been a loooong trip for all of us...Allie was feeling so big. Tyler's Dad came with us and we had a great time.

My helper

Allie is so good to say things like, "Mom your hands are really full, I think I should carry something for you." and "Mom, your kinda' busy, I'll just wash the dishes." She has definitely assumed the oldest daughter position, and although her and Bria can get in some whoppin' fights, they have their unfailing sweet moments.

What do you do with an old ironing board?

This thing needed some help when I found it, bu4t here it is now. This label was originally on it, I just kept the picture and sanded the rest off. I loved it! I painted it and I added the words and now it will be so fun to hang up in my laundry room...just as soon as I finish painting the walls:)

Some Projects

I got this old door for $15, painted it and made it into a clock-I took the door knob off of another door and found these really cool keys-

Cloe's 1!

Cloe Baloey turned one year old! What a sweet, silly girl she is. She adds so much to our family....dishes, spills, laundry, crying...I'm teasing. We love our Cloe!

I guess she was finished:)
