I don't even know where to start. Life is crazy busy and better than ever. We've had a few minor changes in life. Lex started Kindergarten and LoVeS it. His teacher is wonderful and reminds us of Aunt Carolyn. She is so fun and happy all the time (both of them)!
In May we expanded the vinyl. Carl made another website http://www.expressionsvinyl.com/ and it stayed pretty small thoughout the summer. Then BAM it went nuts! We are so grateful. Just when the construction was coming to a complete halt. Carl no longer leaves the house to go to work, he just has to walk downstairs. Its been an adjustment but its been great. We've only had a few disagreements (if you believe that you don't know us very well). It was really hard having someone else come in and make changes to something I had been doing for several years by myself. They have proven to be great changes! It has taken hours and hours and days and days to build up but its been so worth it.
Jessica took some way fun pictures of us a couple of months ago. We used Carl's grandma's house for the background. Here are a few of our favorites....

But I will never forget what happened this morning an either will the children involved.
Lex invited several of his friends to play.
In the house.
In my room.
Normally I wouldn't care but this morning I happen to be in the shower and had no idea that there was anybody in the house. So I get out and the only towel I could find is a hooded towel that happens to be a ghost. Oh and did i mention it fits around a 5 year old not so much around an overweight adult. I'm so organized and on top of household chores I don't keep any clean laundry in the closets. They are all kept in the laundry room where they are nice and safe from getting used.
So me having no clue there is innocent eyes in my house, walk out into my room. Luckily the towel was covering my front half leaving my back side open to the world. Luckily there was nobody to see that!
The children didn't see much but I'm sure they saw enough.
On to happier thoughts!
Carl's grandma is here from California for a few weeks. Yesterday she taught us how to make peanut brittle. It was so good. I'm sure i could have eaten the entire pan. It's also a lot of work. Luckily my sister in law Christi did most of it. All I had to do was butter the pan and watch the fun cooking lesson and crack a few dirty jokes with Paul.
Last night I made a quick trip to Rigby town to give Jamie her books back. I've done a lot of reading lately. More on that later. I surprised her at her bus stop when she got off work. Then we decided to run to Rexburg and dine on at our fave mexicano restaurant Gringo's. It was so delish we almost licked our plates clean. It was great to have so quality time with my buddy. We haven't don't that in a long time. On the way home from Rexburg we were going 70 down the highway laughing so hard we couldn't breath or see. Still not sure who was driving at that point but it was a fun time!
Carl just started mowing our lawn. Its the first mow! Gotta go take some pictures...........

So anyway since my morning started so early and great, I need happy things. So here is what makes me happy.
This super cool girl
is giving away this super cool stuff,
in this super cool bag!
(I totally stole your pictures Amanda. Hope its ok!)
You should also check out her playlist. She has tons of cool songs! There is "make you feel my love" from Adele on there. Mr. Garth Brooks himself sang this at our wedding. Right out of the CD player. You seen one of my good friends was suppose to sing it in real life but he had to work and didn't bother to call and let anyone know that. So we used a CD player. Anyway the next time we get married I think Adele will sing it cause i like hers better. But see without Amanda's playlist I wouldn't even know that song existed.
More stuff that makes me happy - funny video's. I could waste hours on youtube.
You have probably seen this a million times but it is so funny!
This was also funny! Crappy video sorry!
One more funny video!

We raked rocks
Lex got new bedding! Super cute from Wal Mart clearance. Wahoo!
Did I mention we raked rocks? Well we did, a CRAP LOAD of them. But now they are all raked up and we planted grass last Monday! Hopefully we wont have dirt all summer. We are crossing our fingers. We will also be watching the dirt for 7-14 days hoping it turns green. :) If it doesn't I am going to spray paint it. I hear that the new thing.

After a while she saw a kid hit her boy and so her boy hit him back. She goes into the play thing to get her son. Then all hell broke loose. A screaming match began between the two kids' moms! Then one of the other moms friends pushes the mom of the cute boy. Holy crap people! Then the cops were called. That's about the time we left.
I don't know exactly what happened I didn't seen the entire scene. But way to go on being awesome examples to your kids ladies. Really mom of the year awards should be coming to you any day. Seriously starting a fight in a room full of kids because your 4 year olds are fighting! Awesome! I really wonder where they get their manners from?
So anyway we get in the car and Lex says "We gotta get outta here before the cops come. Those mommies were naughty."
I love that kid. He says the funniest stuff. For example the other day the city of Ammon dropped us off a new garbage can. Lex says "we should get their phone number. I think if we call them they can bring us some grass too." Oh how I wish that was all it took. I gave him daddys number instead.
This girl left a comment on my blog the other day! How cool is that. She is like the queen of craft and has awesome music on her blog. Check out this post. makes me wish I hadnt sold my cricut. She also has yummy recipes for freezer meals on this site.
Sorry I don't have pics of anything. I hear its a sin to do a post with no pictures.
**Oh and I totally forgot the real reason you shouldn't take your kids to McD's. They get a crappppppyyyyy CD! Which your kids will love and you will want to shoot yourself in the face. Don't be fooled it looks like it might be ok.
Don't say I didn't warn ya.
