Words to live by

I made this pillow for a friend's birthday present. I think I will make one for my home too.

Jacob and Chloe

My handsome nephew Jacob Edward Villarreal and his sweetie Chloe attended prom last weekend in Yuma, AZ.
Jacob is a twin and I love both of them. Jacob is a great kid.
My favorite memory of Jacob and me is:
Jacob was maybe 14 and we watched THE GRUDGE at his house. I remember waking up the next morning and seeing Jacob sleeping by me because he was spooked by the movie. Such a tough kid sleeping by his auntie for protection.
I love Jacob.

This is Mike's mom Erva, she is is visiting from Pennsylvania. We have an amazing thing in common besides her son and my husband Mike. We are both Scentsy Directors and consultants. We have alot of fun talking Scentsy!
I think this is a great shot of her to use for her Scentsy website, what do you think?

Erva doubles as a photographer. She took this pic of my handsome family on Sunday.

This is a beautiful tulip close to my front door. This tulip has greeted me for the past four days every time I go outside. Thank you tulip. Have a great day.

Spring break 2010

This is Tristan and his friend Angelica. They are in the basement as we speak with 7 other 12-15 year olds celebrating Spring break 2010. I made 3 delicious homemade pepperoni pizzas, breadsticks, and the girls brought dessert. The pizza and breadsticks are gone, Mike and I are watching a movie in our room and can hear one of the seven screaming at the top of their lungs while playing Rockband. Ahh, the life of parents, banished to their room for the evening, until it is time to play Fugitive and then the parents will be invited to drive around Lehi, Utah and search for the 'fugitive' teens. Life is good.
I remember driving up Provo canyon with my fiance 20 years ago, and him asking me what was the thing I wanted to be most in my lifetime. I answered quickly without thinking, answering, "I want to be a mom". I am so blessed. Enjoy your Spring break.

Easter Dinner

We celebrated Easter this last Sunday with my parents. We watched General conference and then had a delicious Easter meal. Ham, potato salad, baked beans, dilly carrots, rolls, and yummy strawberry pie. Mike and my dad complained when I gave them each quarter of strawberry pie. "Cheese and Rice, we can't eat that big of a piece of pie", they exclaimed and then downed it quickly.

The boys love spending time with grandma and grandpa Fraughton. We wished grandma and grandpa Fitzsimmons lived closer.

And this picture of the Jordan River Temple I accidentally put in this post and cannot figure out how to delete it so, enjoy.
