The Happiness Project

The new Grill that opened just around the corner from my house
makes me so Happy!!!
and the food... oh the food.... it's making my mouth water just thinking of it!!
The name of the place:
Here are some of their retro signs they have on the walls of the restaurant
They crack me up

Be sure to join in the fun...

First Big Snow Storm for Utah

The Babies are making a snowman

Winter Wonderland
Sunday Morning 11/21/10
We woke up with no power, and a frozen house
We ran for shelter at my Mom's house
(She had power and heat!! YAY!)

Today, Tuesday 11/23/10
calls for a full on Blizzard
Warnings have been placed and the storm is predicted to start early this afternoon
It is freezing outside and the winds are bone chilling...
ya'll be safe out there

Fairy Birthday Party

Magical Fairy Dust for each Fairy Friend to take home

Kenley had a Fairy Birthday party... 10 little fairy friends came to the enchanted forest (Garage)
for fairy training...
Fairy Tutu's with magical Pixie Dust
Guess who's excited for her Fairy Birthday Party??

Kenley's Fairy House

Each fairy friend got a "Fairy Finder" to look for Fairies
(magic scope around the neck)
and a "Fairy" tutu with magical pixie dust
There were different stations to do an activity at:
Paint a Fairy house (with Mallory)
Fingernail painting with glitter nails (with Shelby)
Bracelet making with Fairy beads (with Courtney)

Thank you to my nieces for helping with the stations...
And thank you to my Besties for helping make these Tutus...

Glitter and Giggles filled the enchanted garage
all while rocking out to Hannah Montana Forever soundtrack

I'm Still Here

A life changing tragedy happened, this past weekend, in our family... Our sweet and dear friend and brother Officer Matt Jewkes took his life Friday Morning, November 5th, 2010. He was married to my sweet sister Mindy, who passed away 2 years ago unexpectedly.... They have left their only son, my nephew, who is now almost 14. He has so many people who love him and will help him through this difficult time... and for the rest of his life... I love you Mason... I love you Mindy... I love you Matt... May you have found peace and the answers you were desperately seeking for.... RIP Matt and Mindy...

Things I want to post and catch up on when I get the chance and my heart has healed a bit more are:
  • Colts Mitey Mite playoff game
  • Brayden got ordained with the priesthood at church Sunday and graduated primary
  • Kenley's 6th birthday post (November 8)
  • Kenley's 6th birthday Fairy party
  • Matt's Funeral (Maybe??) It was an amazing funeral
  • random thoughts and pictures... blah blah blah fun stuff :)
stay tuned...
