A little bit of this & that

First of all, I love the classifieds on We sold a bookcase in 20 minutes, a day bed in 2 hours and a recliner in 5 days, oh and my in laws sold their 4 wheeler in 2 hours. I don't think it gets any better than that.

This past Friday me and my friends put our crafts in the Lehi Round-Up Days craft boutique and were only able to sell on friday because on Saturday we pretty much were forced to take down our booth after a major storm came thru. It was fun while it lasted I just wish it would have lasted longer.

Sunday: Trevor and Heather blessed Jakoby or as Jess calls him "Little Cobes.". It was so nice to hang out with family and to also celebrate Father's Day.

Sunday Afternoon: After the luncheon, we all took a little rest and Easton rolled over for the first time.

Monday Morning: We talked to my parents over the computer for the last time on their mission in Bulgaria. The start touring the country and the Greek islands this week and will come home on July 8th. We are so excited to see them.

Monday: Cassie had a really bad diaper, the kind that only the parents should have to change. Anyways to make this even worse she had diarrhea. I told her it was ooowee yucky diarrhea, she however heard it as "oooweerrhea" and then said it all day long.

Monday Evening: For FHE Kurt decided to have a lesson on marriage, dating and kissing. Kurt was telling the girls that when they go on a date, a very nice boy will come and pick them up in his car, before he could say another word Jessica interrupted and said..."or a motorcycle daddy." Kurt was just as quick to respond with a ..."um, no he wont Jess. There will be no motorcycles."

Tuesday Evening: Just for the record I'm not trying to poke fun at my husband but this was kind of funny, considering his job. I was sitting at the computer with Heather when I thought I heard a knock at the door. I looked out the window and saw a kid on his bike staring at our house. I went and opened the door and another boy was standing on our porch and then asked. . ."um we were wondering if you needed someone to mow your lawn?" I wanted to burst out laughing but politely told the boy that my husband managed a lawn care company and just hadn't gotten around to mowing our lawn in awhile. Oh, if only Kurt would have been home to have answered the door.

Take that Albertsons

Ok, you can laugh at me for posting this but I have to because this will go down in history as my best shopping trip ever. As of last week I have really gotten into the whole coupon shopping thing and I'll admit it's addicting. Anyway, today I went to Albertsons and bought all of this...

for only $4.26 (that's with tax included).

Can you believe that!?! I'm still in shock and totally excited. So yes, that makes me the typical Utah SAHM who is coupon shopping and then blogging about it.
Great deal: I went to Smiths today and found a mail in rebate offer in the beer isle from Budweiser. If you buy $10 worth of water, ice, salty snacks, pizza dips, buns...they'll send you $10.00 back. If you live in Utah you don't have to buy beer to use this. So what ever you buy you get for free. They are also offering the same deal on suntanning oils and lotion.

Throwback Thursday

I just have to laugh at these Senior Pictures of Kurt and myself. I could only find one of Kurt, yet I love this picture because of the story behind it. I was told that his younger brother Tyler took the wallet sized pictures to school and sold them for $5.00 a piece to all the girls in Ontario, OR. Yes I know, I had big poofy hair.

Class of "93"

Class of "95"

We had to add some of our favorite songs from highschool. Hope you enjoy!!!

Long Time No Post

Well I have a lot of catching up to do and I guess I'll start with Memorial Day Weekend. This year we went back up to my parent's cabin in Star Valley, WY. It was so nice to get away and relax. My awesome mother-in-law watched Cassie and Easton for us, so with the younger 50% of our children with Donna and the more responsible 50% with us, I was able to sleep in and take naps on our vacation. Kurt, BJ and Danny had fun on the golf course and got in around 27 holes of golf on Saturday. They even let Sadie and Jessica practice putting. On Sunday we paced up and headed over to Malad for the 2nd half of our weekend. We visited with family and went to the surrounding cemeteries to pay respect to grandparents and other family members. The only negative part of our trip was finding out that Easton had an allergic reaction to formula on Sunday. I had pumped enough milk to last up until Sunday morning and after drinking the similac his body, except for his legs, turned bright red. I felt soooooo bad for Little E and I am still hoping that it wasn't the formula. Sometime this week we are going to give it to him again and see if it really was the formula that caused the reaction. I really am hoping it wasn't.

Next. . . . We had a yard sale last Saturday. We did alright = $165.00, and our kids did awesome, they made $25.00 selling cupcakes, cookies and apple juice in two hours. They would like to have a garage sell everyday.

Last. . . . We blessed Easton this past Sunday. It is always a special moment for every family to bless their baby and this one was no different. I do have to laugh a little because Easton cried throughout the whole blessing. The binkie was in place but slipped through Spencer's and Randy's arms and then fell to the floor. Kurt was great and didn't let the crying affect Easton's blessing. We had a wonderful brunch afterwards at our house and are very grateful to all who helped out with the food.

I love this picture!!!

I just love how he is looking up at me in this one with his arms kind of folded.

Of course we had to take a picture with his little buddy Jakoby. They're getting so big.

The proud parents. (Not the greatest picture)

Just for fun. . . . Sadie asked me to "fast forward backwards" her movie the other day. I kind of like it better than rewind.

Oh and the cutest. . . . We went grocery shopping today and while I was putting Cassie and Easton into the car, Sadie and Jessica were staring at something. I asked them what they were looking at and they pointed to a puddle of water and said, "Look Mom, a rainbow fell down." I looked at the water and saw that there was oil in it.
