Funny Joke

I heard this joke the other day and thought it was hysterical.

Oppression is when your neighbor loses their home.

Depression is when you lose your home.

Recovery is when Obama loses his!!

Man that was good. I laugh more and more each time I hear it. Thanks for listening!!

Hey BayLee!! I need a loan!!!

Yesterday we played Monopoly as a family and BayLee ended up owning the WHOLE board at the end of the game. It was insane. I am somehow the first one out of the game EVERY time we play it. BayLee didn't even have to really try to own the board, luck just fell in her lap and she knew what to do with it. I was so impressed with her bargaining skills along with her math skills. She was a gracious winner of course.

Big Kid Pinewood Derby

Posted by Picasa
Lastnight we went to a church Pinewood Derby race for the men in our ward. It was a blast. I have never seen so many men excited about the same thing at the same time. There were close to twenty racers and they were all like proud peacocks with their cars as feathers. I tell you what, they were so proud of their cars and they were so nice to eachother. All day saturday we had people at our house getting help from Adam and just chillin around the kitchen table doing the finishing touches on their cars. It was so fun to watch them.
The races were all pretty close and the heats went by a lot faster than the scouts derbys! We were all done with the whole thing in an hour and a half. Adam won first place in the outlaw race and lost the regular race by three HUNDRETHS of a second. It was awesome!!!! I think I want to make a car. :)

Back to School

I was so sad to see the summer end! We had a great one, from catching frogs to camping in Yellowstone. They both got to stay a week with family up in Northern Utah. They had a great summer but were both excited for school today. Logan is going to the intermediate school this year so he was a little nervous for the seven classes a day idea and three minutes to get from class to class.I can't believe that BayLee is in second grade. It was fun today as we turned the corner of the building you could hear all these kids yell "BAYLEE"!! and came running to her. It was really sweet. She is lucky to have so many great friends. Here is to a new year and it is going to be a great one. It looks like I have been sucked into PTO again!! :)

My "cool" 6th grader!
My happy 2nd grader!

BayLee and JD. Year three of them together!! They are in the same class this year!!! YEAH!!

She is sooo happy!!!! I love the reflection on the wall of her.

Girls Night Out

I am so lucky to have these great friends who are sisters and daughters and daughter in laws. They bring me into the fold and consider me a daughter and a sister too. I have it so good I have a sister in all of them, and a friend to all of them. We have such a great time no matter what we are doing. Lastnight we went to 25 main (delicious) and a quick stop into DI (of course) and the movie The Proposal. What a great time and it felt great to cut it loose and shake a leg. Love ya girls!

My "sister" Maggie, My second mom Becky, My "sister" Kris, Me, My "sister" Brandy, and My "sister" Heather.
Maggie and I are the "crazy" sisters that you have always wanted. Going to DI is great therapy. We have a great time whenever we go there. MAN, I should have bought the salmon polyester jumpsuit I saw there last month. It was awesome.

Love it Maggie!!!

All Ready to Go!!

Mia Mia Mia. She is so stinkin funny. She is now obsessed with purses, beads, and shoes. She loves to empty her shoes out and carries them all around the house. She loves to wear Tiaras, and jewels. She is so much fun and is talking more and more. I love this stage when they are totally intrigued with the world and what surrounds them.
