Suzy's Baptism

Suzy will be baptized at 0930, Saturday May 1, 2010 at the Stake Center located at 460 E. Center Street, Orem Utah, 84097. That is on the North side of Center just past the 400 E and Center stoplight. Grid to follow: 40 degrees 17'51.47" by 111 degrees 41'01.07" elevation 1463m. All are invited to attend.
Those who know me, know that I really love being a mom. I think I must see my children through rose colored glasses.

But about once a month, this is all I can see. I'm counting my blessings that the once a month does not last too terribly long.........

Tell Me The Truth !

Are YOU the author of Seriously so Blessed????
Its ok you can tell me!
Here are my reasons for thinking so....
Number A.) Your a writer
B.) TAMN (tiffiany AMBER megan nicole) <---Has Amber in it! ( do you have sisters named tiffiany megan and nicole? I dunno)
C.) your own personal blog has been neglected (hmmmm blogging on Seriously so Blessed have we?)
D.) Whomever is behind Seriously so Blessed is spying on me! I stumble alot of blogs and I have not seen any with colored words like mine. Hers went colored around when mine did...Tamn always types in black. Always!
E.) JJWT Jeff John Watson? (I dunno Jeffs middle name and I don't have anything for the T. Do you like to call him tiger?)
F.) You live in Utah and make fun of Mormon culture. ( I know its a stretch who doesn't? But I can totally see you saying some of the stuff she posts.)

By the way I almost called you...and its going on 11 and you are probably still up...I was this close to calling thinking o! it has to be her!!!

Its ok Amber you can tell me! If not I will only be a tiny bit disappointed. If anyone could write a blog like this one I know you could!

Boo just found an interview with her. Guess its not you. I was really convinced for a min that it was you Amber!

What I love about coupons

I have not done much coupon shopping lately.  I know *gasp*.  The fantastic sales have not been as good as they once were, and added to the increased newspaper cost, I have chosen to not chase the sales.  
Thanks to Laila, I was able to get my hands on some $3 off 5 coupons for this week's 10 for 10 quaker sale.  If you do the math, each item comes out at .40!  Except for those purchased using a $1.00 off printable coupon.  Those were free!!!!!

30 boxes of cereal and 10 boxes of instant oatmeal for $16.00
Thanks Laila!

Spring Break--First Stop

Last week the kids and I went to Charleston to bond.  I had 2 free hotel nights there (although free is a relative term when they throw away a kids' retainer while you're there!) and  we stayed at the farm the first night so that I wouldn't have to pay for a thord night.  I thought you guys might enjoy some pictures.

First of all, the reason my kids are usually pretty happy to travel with me.

Treat bags.
From our house it's about the same time to drive to the farm on the interstate (faster) or on local highways (shorter) so I always take the highways.  I love when we drive through the little towns just before Society Hill--the old houses along the highway are so amazing.

We were so excited that Aunt Pam was there too.  


How many pictures have been taken on these steps??

The kids had a great time roller blading & ripsticking in the driveway.  (Really and truly, I probably only needed to take them to a big empty parking lot for spring break!)

They also enjoyed the new tire swing.

For those of you who haven't heard the story, Uncle Chuck, Uncle Mark, and Dad were determined to put up this swing while they were all there last winter.  (Remember--this is Dad who put up a swing in the Hendersonville back yard by tying two ladders together!)  Anyway, they drove the truck under the tree and put the ladder in the back of the truck so that Uncle Chuck could climb up the ladder into the tree.  (Why Uncle Chuck?  Did they figure he was closest to the end of his life??)  Then he climbed out onto the limb to attach the rope.  Aunt Pam sounded like she thought they were all insane when she was telling the story!

It was a beautiful time of year to be at the farm.  Everything was covered with a haze of yellow pollen--just like North Carolina.  I don't know how Aunt Pam manages to make the yard at the farm look better than my yard, when I live in my home all of the time!  (Except that she works really hard in the yard at the farm, and I don't work in my yard!)


We went up to the Society Hill cemetery before we left.  For those of you who aren't lucky enough to be out here ;) here are pictures of Grandma's & Grandpa's markers.  I can't remember what Aunt Pam said they're called--but they're not headstones and that probably is the extent of my cemetery vocabulary!

Here is another shot so that you can see more of the cemetery.

As we drove to the cemetery I told the kids about a lovely home we passed.  I told them that one day Grandpa and Grandma Cindy just stopped at the house and told the people how much they liked it, and the people showed them all around it.  Every time I pass it the memory makes me smile.

We stopped across the street on our way back so that I could take some pictures of the home & yard.  Just for mom!


 Hope you've enjoyed our time at the farm!

What happens when a 4 year old finds your camera at bedtime, and no one checks on him for an hour and a half. These are the very best of the 143 pictures.
