Battle Of The Marshmallows

Chloe reached up on the pantry shelf
To grab down the bag of sugar
She didn’t listen to her mom yelling “No!”
Because she is such a booger
Mom grabbed at the bag, Chloe held on tight
Who knew it would turn into such a fight
The bag was ripped, the mallows spilled
Chloe reached down to get her fill

And the Battle was won

Due To My Fun Night…

I haven’t seen So You Think You Can Dance yet!! Aaaaaaa!

Mamma Mia!

Last night I went to see Mamma Mia with my mom, my sis & mother-in-law, and my cousin and aunt. I thought it would be a cute movie, but I didn’t expect to love it as much as I did! The setting was gorgeous. I want to take a vacation to Greece now! All of the actors did a great job and the music was really good. It was hilarious too! I bet it was really fun to be in that movie. My favorite part of the night? Dancing in the movie theater to the closing credits and having the rest of the theater stare at us like we were crazy…because we are! Thanks for a fun night everyone!!


My New Friend

(Never mind how dirty my toaster oven is…)

I was reading a blog online of a mom who cooks everything in her toaster oven. I thought that she might be a little coo coo for cocoa puffs because she hosts a frugal living site and some of her ideas are a little out there. Well, it’s been so hot that I decided to give it a try….and it actually works just like a regular oven. Who would’ve thought?? :) So far, I have baked enchiladas and spaghetti meatballs in it and today I put it to the final test – cookies! Hooray for not heating the whole house!!

Alzheimer’s Memory Walk

Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive and fatal brain disease that is currently the sixth leading cause of death in the United States. Sadly, there isn’t a cure. But with the proper treatment of symptoms and support, life can be better for the millions of American’s living with Alzheimer’s.

Each year, the Alzheimer’s Association holds the Alzheimer’s Memory Walk in more than 600 communities to help raise money to contribute to Alzheimer’s support programs, treatments and research. Since 1989, Memory Walk has raised more than $200 million to help those battling Alzheimer’s disease.

The Alzheimer’s Association is looking for people like us to help volunteer as a team captain or to participate in Memory Walk. A typical Memory walk is 2-3 miles and is held in the fall. 3 walks will be held in Utah on the following dates:

Date: September 6, 2008
Location: Creekside Park

Date: September 20, 2008
Location: Riverdale Park

Date: November 8, 2008
Location: Sun River Park

If you are interested in helping a good cause, you can find more information online regarding registration for the walks as well as other ways to volunteer or donate.

Musical Monday – Old School Janet

I used to have a VHS tape full of Janet video’s I taped from MTV (back when they actually played videos…) and I would stand in front of the TV for hours memorizing the dance to this song. It was probably pretty amusing to watch a 10 year old try to dance around with a chair!

Flashback Friday – Some Things Never Change

Who can resist taking a picture with a gorilla? Ryan was so little in the first picture..hee hee!
