Art Projects and Matts new BFF

I spent all night last night making an art project for my wall. It turned out just like I wanted it too, and Im very excited to make more like it. I got paper that coordinated (in my opinion) from Hobby Lobby and cut out kindof modern/abstract shapes and put them on solid colored cardstock and framed them in a grouping. I love it.

I also made a card book thing for my sister. I bought the supplies in a kit, and got the instructions to put it together. It turned out so cute, and I know she is gonna love it! I am sending it to her in a package with some baby things I've bought for her. I miss her lots, but I think she might be joining us on family vacation in July! I hope so!!!

Lastly, we have been feeding the hummingbirds at our house like crazy. Matt calls them his little friends. Like we give them so much of that sugar water mixture that we have to fill it up at least once a day. They are always there feeding, and have even gotten so used to us, that they will come and get a drink even if we are on the porch. Matt loves them, and so do I :) He took this really cool picture of one last night, and I thought I'd share...

20 day giveaway on Tip Junkie!

Happy Birthday Trev!!!

So this weekend it was my brother Trever's Birthday. He turned 27!! We had a birthday party for him on Saturday night at his house. It was really fun. Originally we planned on making smores, but with the intense heat beating down on us, we opted for creamies instead.

It was way fun and I cant believe they will be moving so soon! All of My sister in laws family were there, and the kids loved getting wet and getting each other wet. Rigdon had quite a bit of "spillage" on his shirt, so I took it off for him :) I love little boys without their shirts on! We had a lot of fun, and will miss those guys living so close!

Wild Weekend

Well, it was a way fun and crazy busy weekend for us. Friday night was spent preparing for our Yard Sale that Matt and I had on Saturday. It was a lot of work, but turned out a success! We just had fun chillin in the driveway, and relaxing once everything was put out. After it was done, we put out a bunch of boxes that I just wrote FREE! on, and by the afternoon, they were all gone! Im glad someone got use out of my old clothes, and junk :) After the yard sale, we went to Summerfest for lunch. We ran into a bunch of friends, and all of Matts sisters and Mom. It was the first really nice day we had and it was pretty warm!

After summerfest we took a much needed nap and got ready for camping! We Camping on Saturday night to our favorite canyon--Franklin Basin, for the first time this year, and it is absolutely beutiful! We had a lot of fun! I can wait to go back!!! We took some pretty cool pics of the sunset, and stopped at Logan Cave on the way back home :) Logan Canyon is the prettiest place on earth!

Sunday afternoon was spent with our families, because of Father's Day. Happy Fathers day to My Dad, and My father in Law--Jim. The 2 best dads ever! Were lucky to have way cool Dads :) I wouldn't trade mine for the world!!!!! My cousin Jakob Larsen got his eagle progect award, and we went to a little thing at the park in Wellsville, my Aunt Lorraine was up visiting from Colorado, and it was so fun to see her! Sad the weekend is over!

I WON!!!

I just won a drawing i signed up for on a great website that I love, Tip Junkie. They were promoting a website for Elizabeth Englehart Creations. I just left a comment, and she emailed me today to tell me I won a boxed set of cards! So cute! I love it!

News, news, more news, and Rigdon :)

It has been a while since I posted. I know im a slacker, but a lot has been going on lately. Where to begin?? Mikela found out that she is having a baby boy. That really made me happy! There is just something about little boys that I love and hope we have many more in our family. Its probably because Rigdon is a boy, and i want all babies to come to our family as loveable as he is.
Emily, Matts sister, also found out that she is expecting a girl! She already has little estella, so they will be best friends im sure!
We are really excited about all of this, and cant wait to find out what Kristin is having. Which brings me to other news. Trever, my brother, has almost for certain decided to take a job with Sealy (mattresses) in Seattle! This means, Kristin and Rigdon are going too. I am excited for the changes, and progress in their family, but I cant even tell you how much I will miss my little buddy, and not even get to see the new baby very often at all.
My family does a lot of stuff together, and it will be hard to adjust without them or my sister around. I have been gathering up baby items that are too cute not to buy, for my sis, and I cant wait to give them all to her, and meet the little man. She is hopefully coming to visit for fathers day! That would make my year. Lately I have just been missing her more than ever! I love you Goob!

Matt has also been looking at switching Career Paths. He has had an offer to work for a custom gun maker here in Cache Valley. He would start at part time, and after 6 months or so we would be moving to Trinidad, Colorado for him to go to gunsmithing school. Dont worry dad, we'll represent :) We are really excited for what the future holds! Glad I have someone like Matt to keep me on the right track. He is the best husband, and I couldn't be happier!
