Benny Bomber

This young man is in my Sunday School class. He was bored one day and decided to make a video. You know the kind, the silly ones that have no real meaning. The ones that you plan on recording over because someday there will be something better to do.
Who really EVER has a video camera on when you want to capture that extremely funny moment.
Who can ever make a funny moment happen without it seeming set up and planned.
Ben was truly just hanging out trying to cure summer boredom.
He sent it to Americas Funniest Videos.
Ben will be one of the finalist on September 12!
Of course to be aired at a later date!
(I will let you know more later!)
It is soooo fun to have a TV star in my Class!

More Sunshine!

Danielle, Auntie Tiff, Caison and Taylor enjoying Brekyn's soccer game.
Brekyn is the only girl I know that wears BOWS to her games and still plays like a boy!

Everyone looks happy but Caison..."Let me RUN!"

Look how beautiful Danie and Auntie LeeAnn are!
They are so tan!
I dont think I have ever seen Danie this tan!

Taylor and Kali! I know that Taylor loves her to death! Just look at the smile on her face! they look like they are missing me at all?

I dont think so!I am so glad they are having fun in the sun!

I really wish I was there with them!

Enjoy your time girls!
Mommy loves you!

Love September Favorite Skirt Pattern GUEST GIVEAWAY!!!!

Love September Favorite Skirt Pattern GUEST GIVEAWAY!!!!

Another Give Away!

If you give a girl a pattern
Then she will want to make the skirt.
She will go to get her sewing machine
but find her pedal is missing.
Then she will go to her craft room closet
and pull everything out.
She will realize she has too much craft stuff
so she will decide to ebay her stamps.
Then she will get on the computer to start the ebay process,
but realize she didnt sort her stamps.
She will start to sort her stamps and realize she has a few family members with birthdays coming up.
So she will begin to make some cards.
Suddenly she will feel uncomfortable in her stiff pants
and will want a nice skirt to wear.
She will remember the skirt pattern she wants to win.
She will go to get out her machine,
but find her pedal missing...

This blog has some of the cutest pumpkins ever!
She has all the directions to make them!
So go Here and check them out.
Unfortunatly, (in case you dont remember) if I had my pedal to my machine
I would make them.
Instead, I am trying to win them!

Hurricane Time!

We are in the mist of hurricane season!

Hurricane Bill. He isn't on land but he is raining on our parade as we speak. Our beach day is rainy, and waves that are normally 1-2 feet high are now supposed to be 15 feet. Many people are heading to the beach just to watch. (not me I hate the beach) We are not, plans have been changed and changed again.

Hurricane Girls Camp. The girls got back from camp yesterday. With that comes laundry, putting away all the camping supplies, and other various items associated with a week of camp. In reality girls camp is really girls Marriott. They are in cabins the whole week, have someone cook for them and if I remember correctly have a whole lot of free time!
Hurricane Arizona. Now that the girls are home they must get all things together for their trip to AZ. Packing way too much, is high on the list of 140 mile an hour winds. We leave from church tomorrow after a baptism of a sweet little girl who used to be in one of my primary classes. We must "fly" to NYC an hour away to get the girls there for their flight. Lets hope that Hurricane Bill doesn't have other ideas for Airline Departures.
Hurricane School follows close behind the girls return. Orientations, school supplies and new clothes are all in the eye of that hurricane. Luckily I have a week to take a deep breath before we have to deal with that!

Last This Is The Last Post Tonight...Maybe!

Tonight we go to Young Women's camp.
It is a Church Camp for girls ages 12-18!
There is a Presidency of Young Women called. They are bright and spiritual girls who want to serve their fellow sisters.They are beautiful, charming, funny Young Women and I know that for sure because of the 4 girls I know 3!!! So if 3/4 of them ar beautiful and charming odds are great the 4th will be too!
Thursday is a very special night!

It is a mixture of spirituality and fun!

Bishopric Races come first!

Then parents come and eat a WONDERFUL dinner. I must say I am lucky enough once again to know the "cooks". Thanks Debra...Thanks Lynette...Yummy! As Always!

After dinner there is a program and then we are led to a beautiful bon fire by the lake!

The girls in the Presidency dressed as lamanites of old, begin a beautiful story of love and courage from a young lamanite girl. This sweet girl finds a baby in the river, but she sees she is a child of Lily white skin and she knows her people would not be happy with the child.

I love to hear the story of the young lamanite girls quest to find the child's people! Every year it brings tears to my eyes.

After a beautiful program the girls bear their testimonies to those they have camped with.

EVERY Year I am impresses with the testimonies these girls have! Some are strong and some just budding, but I know without a shadow of a doubt they are our future leaders!

My girls LOVE IT!

I am glad they do!!!

Always Something New!

I am really liking these watches!
They are super cute and pretty easy to make!
So am I behind the times or are these new on the craft scene?
I found these on this Blog from

In fact I like this site quite a bit!
She has some good ideas and is quite the writer.
She has recipes, and crafts
(one that I will make! and it isnt the watches)
I have several blogs I love to read, some make me smarter, some make me laugh, some make me want to find my sewing machine pedal and some make me cry!
If you have any blogs you particularly love let me know.
I am always in search of something new!


Just saying, why can't I find my sewing machine pedal?
All I want to do is try some fun and easy projects!

Yes, it is Whitney and Sadi again.
My two sweet nieces who are so talented and Obviously in Love with the Jonas Brothers!!!
This was their entry!
They entered a contest through the local radio station and were supposed to
"be your best Jonas" .
In this contest you try to look as much like the brothers as possible. They did a pretty good job if I say so myself!
I'd like to say they were grand prize winners, but....
they were 1st runner up!


They won, 4 front row tickets, and a sound check pass for before the show!

I love that they use their talents and not hide them under a bushel! Congratulations Sweeties!

Sweet, Sweet

Need I say MORE?

Do YOU understand teeanagers?

Remember? I told you that my girls say cute things. Like the secret code word for a cute guy! I was so excited to post that and let you get a glimps into my girls. Let me tell you how unhappy they were when they saw my post!

"MOM! You can't tell our secret code word or everyone will know it!"

(like everyone reads my blog!!)

I am NOT allowed to tell you the cute things my girls say. You will just have to be happy with the useless information and snippits of fun that I MIGHT be allowed to write.

What do these guys have in common?

My girls LOVE cute guys!
They like to alert each other to Cuties!
Instead of announcing LOUDLY
"look at that Hottie!"
"he's Cute!"
they have a code word!
so nextime you see a cute guy walking by just announce to your friends, sisters
or yes MOTHER
and everyone knows to look around for the nearest
PS...I just got in trouble for giving away the Secret CODE WORD!
Thus the removal of Secret Code Word!

I love to blog I really do! Unfortunatly every day of my life is not an exotic barrel of fun!
I have beautiful daughters. I love to spend time with them, but I wish I had blogging as a outlet when I had small children. They said the cutest things!
Ok they still say cute things, but somehow "mommy, I have to go potty, NOW!" doesnt sound as cute coming from a 17 year old!

I do have things going on in my life, REALLY I do! But are they the exciting fun things you would like to hear about every day?

For instance the whole teaching thing.

Each day I get up, (I do get to sleep in, positive of no small children in the house! whoo hoo!)


  • fill out some paperwork or make some phone calls.
  • Get frustrated because I found out something different than what they said last time
  • Feel stupid because I dont understand what the Dumb web site says!
  • Wonder should I just give up? Maybe if I cant even get the certificate, maybe I wont be a great teacher!

Now I am pretty positive that is not what you want to hear! So I wait for something more exciting, and BAM it has been a couple of weeks no post!

Help! Guess this is gonna have to do for a couple of weeks! My girls are gonna leave me for girls camp and Az. Then I will have no one to cry to!
