Happy Turkey Day!!!

I totally ripped this off of another blog - I thought it was really good....

If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead and a place to sleep - you are richer than 75% of this world.

If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish someplace - you are among the top 8% of the worlds wealthy.

If you woke up this morning with more health than illness - you are more blessed than the million who will not survive this week.

If you have never experienced the danger of battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation - you are ahead of 500 million people in the world.

If you can attend a church meeting without fear of harassment, arrest, torture, or death, you are more blessed than three billion people in the world.

If your parents are still alive and still married - you are very rare, even in the United States.

If you hold up your head with a smile on your face and are truly thankful - you are blessed because the majority can, but most do not.

If you can hold some one's hand, hug them or even touch them on the shoulder - you are blessed because you can offer healing touch.

If you can read this message, you are more blessed than over two billion people in the world that cannot read at all.

Things I am Thankful for...

My wonderful husband & son - they keep me laughing.

All our great family and friends - they all do so much for us - We Love You All!

My house, car, cell phone & Ipod - I don't know what I would do with out these. I am really thankful to live in this day and age. I would never have survived as a pioneer.

What are you thankful for?

Cute Boy!

Hey every other day for posting is pretty good!

So every night to put Lex to bed our routine usually goes something like this...

Carl gets his PJ's on, I help him brush his chops and get him in bed and Carl reads him a story. A couple of nights ago we added another step. Heres how it went...
Me: Lex how many blankets do you want on?
Lex: What will I be if I have 1 on?
Me: Freezin' Cold
Lex: What will I be if I have 2 blankets on?
Me: A little bit cold
Lex: What will I be if I have 4 blankets on?
Me: Roasting Hot!
Lex: No I will be Roast Beef! How about I have 3 blankets on.

I love the stuff he comes up with! He is one funny kid! He rarely says "I Love You". He has told me on very few occations. So last night I say "goodnight Lex, I love you". I was waiting for his usual response "ok". Instead he pushed the hair away from my eye and said "I need to see both your eyes - I love you". It was so sweet! Totally made up for all the "ok's" he's given me in the past.

Now I am off to make signs! I will leave you with a layout I did awhile ago - I heart Elsie stuff!

Happy Saturday!

As promised...

So here is the story about Jessica and I in the bathroom.

The ETM crops are held at the Idaho Falls activity center. In the center there is a Girls bathrooms and a Boys bathroom. Sometimes they are switched because the boys bathroom has more stalls than the girls. There aren't many men at the scrapbooking event. By many I mean 0. When you walk in the Boys bathroom there is 1 stall 1 urinal & 1 sink, but there is second door. Behind that door contains more stalls and more sinks.

Jessica and I decide we need to use the restroom during our fun day of scrapbooking. We atomically go to the Boy's (since its usually the girls). They haven't been switched this particular day. We (I think I) decided we should use it anyway. We use the stalls behind the second door (refer to above). After we are done washing our hands we go to open the door - but wait! We hear someone coming in. Thinking its probably another woman we listen to make sure....

What we heard was Not a woman! We listen to the man pee and then wait for him to wash his hands. What? No washing! Gross!

So that day we were very grateful for the second door and our great timing. Although it could have been better - it could have been worse. I have very thankful I only had to listen and not see!

Here are some of the cute projects we did that day....

This is the cover of the mini book that the incredible Amanda taught.

These are the fall pages. There are also winter, spring & summer. Stinkin cute!

We did some way cute Christmas cards and a really cute Halloween layout. I will post pictures of them as soon as I can find them.

This is the layout that I worked on ALL FREAKIN DAY!

Sorry for the crappy pictures I was in too much of a hurry.
Happy Thursday!

Does anyone still read this thing?

Life has been crazy busy the last couple of weeks. I am now one of those annoying bloggers that never post. Sorry!

Here is what we've been doing.....

Friday Oct. 19th Took Lex to the doctor because he had croup. Doc put him on steroids and an antibiotic - he was good to go. I also packed for Kim's Crop

Saturday Oct. 20th Started the day going to the big Roberts sale - didn't want to wait in line so Jessica and I went to subway for breakfast where I was pleasantly surprised. I recommend the Subway on Channing. Carl and I went to the one on Woodruff and it wasn't the same. We went back to Roberts and did some shopping. Then we went to Kim's crop, made really cute stuff and got stuck in the bathroom listening to a man pee with Jessica (more on that later).

Sunday Oct. 21st Lex missed his primary program because he was sick.

Monday Oct. 22nd Our church has a fire in it and so for the next 2 weeks we couldn't use it.

Tuesday Oct. 23rd Mutual canceled because of church fire. It was nice to stay home on a Tuesday, I haven't done that in a while. Lex was upset because Tuesdays are him and daddy's night to play - no girls allowed.

Wednesday Oct. 24th Went to the temple with Young Women presidency. It was really great bonding time. Also ate yummy, cheap temple food.

Saturday Oct. 27th Super Saturday for our ward. They really had soup on Saturday. I made a lot of vinyl signs the past week and I was very glad it was done. They made some really cute projects. We also went to the pumpkin walk in Shelley with Carl's family. The Alan and Eva Tyger family came from Utah for a fun visit.

Sunday Oct. 28th Went to my parents for dinner. Went to Carl's parents and carved pumpkins. Carl's dad grew white pumpkins and we grew the regular orange variety. There was plenty for everyone. I forgot my camera so I will have to get pictures later from grandma Rosie.

Monday Oct. 29th We went to Boo at the Zoo with the Tygers and the rest of Idaho Falls. Don't think we will be attending that next year. Livee was a darling little red riding hood, Hudson was the cutest bee and Lex was spiderman. We only saw about 20 other spidermen there. We went to Pizza Hut afterward for dinner. Yummy! Then we came here and ate some yummy Orange pie. I will post that recipe cuz its good. Lex got to play Pokemon with Dallin. We all just got to hang out. It was really fun.

Tuesday Oct. 30th Mutual at our house for a baby shower. One of the other leaders is having a baby boy any day. We played fun games and learned how to make a diaper cake. We also ate yummy popcorn balls. Need to post that recipe also.

Wednesday Oct. 31st Halloween! Lex went trick or treating to Granma Tolley's, Grandma Rosie's and Tomm & Jessica's. We kept it short because we had to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM.

Thursday Nov. 1st Lex got his teeth worked on. They pulled 2, capped 1, and filled a few cavities. He did really good. It went by really fast - I am glad Carl was there. We played Nintendo's against each other while we were waiting. Lex has to go back in 2 weeks and get a spacer. He was pretty mad when he realized they took out his teeth. Learning about the tooth fairy made it somewhat ok. My cousin Tel and his wife Emily were at the same hospital having their 1st baby the same day! She wasn't born while we were there but I hear she is a doll. Her name is Kanani Jewel! Love it!

Saturday Nov. 3rd stayed home all day! Carl cleaned out the vehicles I love him for that. I cleaned of my desk's. They are still a mess. It was a really good relaxing day. I didn't even put on makeup - love days like that.

Did you make it through that? Holly Molly! Now that I am caught up I promise to post fun things - like pictures!
