Our own Enrichment night!

In my ward we dont seem to have the fun enrichment nights where we make the "utah crafts" I know many make fun but I am sad we dont have them! I know, I know I have been called "country" even though I am not and yes I do know I have a rooster in my kitchen but I promise I am not but I do like these cute crafty things for Holidays..... so my friends from my neighborhood got together and had our own enrichment night and made these CUTE christmas crafts! We had so much fun and I LOVE mine I cant wait for christmas now!

Our Family

Since the whole children thig isnt working out too well for Rob and I we decided to add to our family in another way-- This one has been way less expensive and really fun! Most of you who live close by know cause we have had her for 2+ months now but we got a dog!Her name is vesper and she is a German Shepherd. Seeing as I am just posting this now reminds me of how I need to do a Summer of '09 post and talk about all the fun we've had this summer but we went up in the canyons with Rob's family and got this "new" family picture taken and I wanted to share. Do not mind the Hams in the picture you may mistake for my arms-- (I am also realizing I need to work out a bit more :()

I Heart Coupons


My amazing friend Leslie always makes me feel like a sub-par shopper when I see all the GREAT deals she gets from couponing! So this morning she called me to go on a shopping spree and teach me her ways..... Now you are probably wondering how much I paid for the groceries pictured above and the question you should be asking is how much did Albertson's PAY ME to take these groceries off their hands?! Yes, that is right, sweet old Albies paid me 10 bones to take these off their hands! I think its safe to say I will be couponing all the time now! Thanks Les for teaching me your ways!!

Bella's trip to The Aquarium

This was a while ago but I was on a blogging hiatus so I never posted about it but I was looking through my pictures and I wanted to have this in my blog to remember. Back about a week before Maddie was born Alex brought Bella into The Aquarium so we could show her all the turtles,snakes,lizards and FISH! Bella is a little girl who LOVES animals she always wants to go outside and look for "bichos" (bugs in spanish) so I thought she'd love to come in and get a hands on expierence at The Aquarium.

One thing that I think is so funny is Bella is in love with the movie Tinkerbell. There is a part on it where there is a mouse and Alex always says "EWW" so now everytime Bella sees a mouse on tv she yells out, "look at the Ewws" so every time she comes into the Aquarium she has to go see "the Eww's" AKA the feeder mice for all the snakes and stuff-- There were no pics taken of that cause it takes a lot to get me to even walk into that room let alone pose for a picture.

Quilt for Martina

My cousin,Florencia, in Argentina had a baby back in March right after little Madeleine was born. I wanted to do something for my family that I never get to see Although I have met Florencia once. It was probably colse to 10 years ago she came to Utah to visit and stayed with us. I had so much fun with her even though our communication was little to NONE!! She speaks spanish and all of you that know anything about me know that I do not speak spainish at all even though I had 2 years of it in school not to mention my mother speaking spanish fluently my whole life(I know I am LAME!!!) I have so many fun memories with her and feel a connection with her even though we dont talk much. SO back to what I was originally posting about..... I made her little girl Martina a quilt and sent it out this week. I LOVED how this quilt turned out and hope they both like it!

A few weeks ago my girlfriends from high school and I got together for a girls trip down in St. George. We haven't all been together for this long since the good old High School Days and since our 10 year reunion was coming up we decided it was definitely time! It was such a great weekend that we spent talking and shopping with your best friends(what could be better than that)I have been friends with these girls since I was a little girl and have SO many memories with each of them. I really think an anual trip is definitely in need and cannot wait to do it again!

Happy Birthday Rachel

It was Rachel's Birthday a couple of weeks ago so a few of my good friends from my neighborhood got together and took Rachel to The Melting Pot! YMMMMMM! We ate like Kings at it was amazing. Happy Birthday Rachel!

Mini Vacation to St. George

My friends and I were able to go to St. George for the weekend a couple of weeks ago and it was a much needed little getaway even if it was just for a couple of days! We were able to stay at my friend Kelli's house and had such a great time. From going to see Seventeen Again(Paige has a slight obsession with Zac Effron) and just shopping and getting pedi's! Leslie's husband Joe came with us so Rob wasn't forced to hang out doing girly stuff all weekend.

Les and I bought Rob and Joe matching outfits but they would only wear the shirt! HA HA

I am so excited to meet her and get to have a baby to play with all over again. I just LOVE my niece Isabella and can't imagine having another one like her so I cant wait to see it actually happen! She is due on Sunday but if she does not have her will be induced on Wednesday! So Hopefully sooner than later we will be meeting my new little niece who has yet to be named.

Alysha's Baby Shower

Alysha is my good friend from the good old college days down in Cedar City. She is due with her first little girl in the end of March. I wanted to make her something really cute and lately I have been living at a little Fabric shop in South Jordan called Material Girls. (Namely the reason for not blogging) I have developed a new hobby and may I say I am LOVING it! Rob certainly is not since he got our AMEX bill but I am having fun and thats what counts isnt it?!! Anyway back to Alysha-- We were invited to her baby shower a couple of weeks ago and I ended up making her the cutest little sleep sac, some burp cloths,and a travel diaper and wipe case. I am not trying to brag or anything and I am sure there are a million people who can do this with their eyes closed but I am so proud of what I made!

I am also in the middle of making the baby bedding for my sisters baby that is due at the end of March as well so I am turning into a little seamstress-- well that might be being too generous but I am having fun! I will post more of my finished projects when I am done with them!
