My thrifty craft

I thought of a cute way to store flower hair clips, but didn't want to spend the money for a new frame and backer-board. So, I took this rooster picture that was replaced by the temple picture I got for Christmas....
And then with a little spray paint (actually a lot, black is hard to cover), some fabric, ribbon, lots of hot glue, and my handy dandy staple gun (love that thing!) I transformed that old rooster picture into.....

A little flower garden for my girls' flower clips.

Here it is above the dresser. Don't you love the feeling of doing a craft AND saving money?

In the last week...

We had a fun swimming day with some friends. Fun times! My idol, Julie Lewis with her 2 year old and 2 baby twins. She's amazing!

Went waterskiing up at Pineview Resevior with Nate's family. Do you think Sadie loves her aunt, Chantell? YES, she does!

For the first time in 2 years I actually wakeboarded. The water was glass, it was SO fun! Good to know I still have a little of that in me.

We volunteered at the Babe Ruth 13-year-old Baseball World Series here in Murray. It was such a fun night. We witnessed a postal worker riding his bike into a parked car, poor guy. We got a free dinner, yum. And, we got to see some talented 13-year olds play baseball. (Although a couple of them with full mustaches made me wonder :)

Starburst Babies

Apparently I was deprived as a child because, according to Brittany, everyone else was making "starburst babies."
And we all thought Brittany was done creating cute kids, here is her final addition.
(Not nearly as cute as the first 2, but pretty sweet if I do say so myself.)

Radio Disney

My friend Brittany and I took our kids to Radio Disney at the Gallivan Center. It was fun, and most everything was free, gotta love that!

"Got milk?" Actually, I do.

A little resemblance?

Gracie is 4 months old! She is rolling over, laughing, and getting more and more fun each day.

She is a super-cute baby. Sometimes I look at her and she reminds me of the baby gorilla from Tarzan. Something about the hair sticking straight up, the big eyes, ears that stick out, and the big cheeks.... if only I could get a picture of her with a big smile.

Holy Moley!!!

I went to Albertson's last night and came home with all of these groceries. In the end (after the 2 mail-in rebates from Kraft & Kellogg's) they cost about $10.00!!! Yes I said 10 bucks baby!

Kyle's married!

My younger brother, Kyle, married his cute long-time girlfriend, Jamie, this weekend in WA. Nate and I took Gracie on a quick little trip to attend the wedding. Nate's fabulous sister, Chelsie, watched the 2 older kids here in UT.

The wedding was pretty simple, but beautiful too. I still can't believe Kyle's married

The cake-topper was just perfect! Kyle is a mechanic, and is always working on his car. The cake topper was a bride dragging a greasy groom away from his mechanic tools.
