Happy Labor Day

Hi! I hope everyone had a great day. It seems like now that the kids are getting older, they think the Holidays are days that are spent only with their friends. I am at the computer, Paul is in our room taking a well deserved nap, and all of the kids are out with their friends! We went to the church luncheon at a park this morning. They had a pie contest and out of 36 pies, mine won! I was so happy. My Mother is the best cook, she has taught me a lot about cooking. Growing up she always worked so hard on every meal. Her presentation was exceptional. She always put together things that looked so pretty. Everything was healthy, and she always followed the 5 food group suggestions! If we didn't like something she would put it on our plate and say," Just one for color." Then we thought it must be o.k. to eat because it was colorful... I guess. My brothers never ate their carrots, then one day my mom said that it would help them grow hair on their chest. Eating carrots was never a problem for my brothers again. I have heard that Paul's mother is a very good cook. He always talks about her spaghetti and meatballs recipee. I have not tried it bit I hope that someday I will be able to. Off to plan Family Home Evening. Tonight is the night. We are so excited that Paul will be joining us. He is on vacation for 2 weeks. Hooray! Bye for now.

Fun pictures!

These are some fun pictures I found. 1. Ty and Shelly's cabin. We visited them this summer. What an awesome family! 2. I found this picture of me in a drawer a few days ago. This was taken by Taylor a few years back. Times have changed huh? I love finding old pictures. 3. This is a piture of my parent's back yard in Utah. They have done so much work. They have water falls, a zen garden, a slate patio etc... This is the kids and some other extended family on their rock stairs. 4. I love this picture of my Mom and Chandler. They are feeding the fish in the waterfall at my parent's home. This is all for now. Off to a barbeque. Have a great Labor day!
