Flashback Friday

I’ve been working on scanning all of my old pictures, so I thought it would be fun to start doing Flashback Friday (like a few other blogs I’ve seen) and sharing some of my old memories.

Nes – remember when we took off to California on a whim and ended up staying for a week? We were crazy…but it was one of the funnest times I’ve had! What were we thinking packing shorts and tank tops in December??? I can’t believe we made it from LA to Vegas in time for the New Year – and we even got a parking space!!! By the time we got home, I was SO tired I think I slept for a whole day.

Happy New Year from the Vegas Strip!

The Audacity

I’m not usually one to talk politics, but after seeing this video I felt it was important to post it for everyone to see. Do we really want a president who refuses to put his hand over his heart during the national anthem or wear an American flag pin? A man who is willing to lift the ban on meeting with terrorist leaders and wants to sit down with them to talk face to face? I don’t….. The list goes on and on. The video is 10 minutes long, but take the time to watch the entire thing. It’s eye opening.

Gang o’ Strollers

I’ve started walking in the mornings with some other ladies from the ward and we are slowly turning into a stroller gang! There are usually 7 – 9 of us and I’m sure we are a funny sight to see. It’s been a really nice way to get to know some of the sisters better.

And The Cat Came Back…

There is a strange cat that keeps scratching on Max’s window and I’m not sure what to do about it… I think it is a stray, but I’m not sure. I had this great idea to run up the stairs and try to catch it when I heard it scratching today, but then I thought “What would I do with it?” I’m deathly allergic to cats and I hate them anyway. But I don’t want it scratching on the window anymore!! Any ideas from all you resourceful people out there??

Max’s Blessing Day

Max had a great blessing day. Marc did a really good job with the blessing. We were lucky to be able to share the day with Max’s Great Grandma Bonney who was in town from Florida. He looked so cute in a blessing outfit made by Lynne. Thank you to everyone who helped share our special day!

Lila’s Preschool Graduation

I can’t believe what a big deal they make out of everything these days…. I don’t remember doing anything like this when I left preschool! They sang songs about all of the things they learned – days of the week, months of the year, the planets, “Leo the Lion”, the “splish-splash” dance and lots more! They also received a certificate and a trophy because they also did gymnastics. Lila was cute and I’m proud of her for the work she did in class. She’s going to be my overachiever! Lila made some good friends during the year. She will miss seeing them. The little boy in the last picture is Tiago. I think he is Lila’s first “crush”, but she won’t admit to it! :)
