Summer Time in Logan!

So Sweet! This is her "hat" that she made, then was promptly scolded for pulling the leaves off of the trees....Not by me.

"Like Mother, Like Daughter"!

Playing at G-ma's with cousin's and Aunty.

Maybe she won't notice......?

Ooopppss, she doesn't want to share!!

What is better on a roasty-toasty hot day than a Popsicle?

Ya, she got it back!

Peach Castle.

Cousin Love!

Surprise and shock are great!

Thinking it over...

"Hi Mom!"

Skating time with Cousins.

Where Have I Been?

Catching a little sun!

Sisterly Love!

"Kisses anyone?"

Fish she caught "all by herself".

Sweet little Bryli.

So where have I been?? No where exciting. Life has happened and pretty quick. I'm still plotting along, and the girls are growing nicely!!! ha ha ha, like little weeds. Cambry, finished 1st grade and Autumn will start Preschool next fall. Here's a few pic's, and I'll work on things more Later!

Green Beans

Well, I have a bunch of pic's to share, but I'm too lazy to download them right now, so I just thought that I would write a little. This last week right after YW's I ran down to Logan. Yep I had to leave poor little Ryan all alone, but I had good reason, and a good time! I went down to can bean's at my parents. They had a bunch and were just going to give them away, when I found that we had eaten our last bottle of canned beans, so off I went. I decided to kill a few birds with one stone, so I called a few friends that are still in the Logan area, and we got together for a luncheon! I picked beans and canned them on Wednesday, and it took a while, but we had fun and the girls got to play with Grandma! I think little Autumn drove my dad nuts, 'cause she will call him "GrandMA" and expects him to turn and listen to what she's saying. He worked and worked with her, but she never did say "grandPA". Oh well, we'll try again.

Then Thursday, I had called some of my friends and my SIL and we had a BBQ and sat around and gabbed for a little while. We had 17 kids running around, so defiantly not a dull moment. It was also my G-ma Petersen's and Cousin Karen's birthdays, as well as my Father In Law, Lynn's Birthday, so Happy Birthday to you guys! My g-ma isn't doing so good, but she's made it 90 years so far. Some day's I hope to live a long times, and some day's I'm not so sure. My Cousin Karen wrote down a thing in her "notes" section on Facebook about how every time she leaves from seeing Grandma, she cries, I believe I'm in that same boat. I think getting old is okay, but it's hard watching a loved one suffer.

My little girls are growing and growing...Cambry goes to her first day of school this Wednesday!! Aaahh, Kindergarten here we come! I'm a little scared to send my little girl off. What if she's picked on, made fun of, or is beat up??? What if she's the one doing the picking, making, or beat up of??? Lots to think about, and now I've got to learn how to do homework, all over again! ha ha ha. Any advice from you veterans? Autumn loves Cambry so much, this might be a challenge to send Cambry away everyday. When Cambry went and slept over at her cousins this last week, Autumn was in my room every 20-30 minutes, half the night...what a night.

Bryli is learning to crawl and can get around quite well. She's getting up on her knees and rocking, but she moves better by just rolling back and forth, but she is working one it. My girls all love each other and it's so fun to hear about their days. Ryno is still madly in love with his little girls and just morns them when they are away from him.

I've recently decided that I don't like hobo spiders much. They are just a little too scary. I'm having my foundation sprayed tomorrow, and I'll let every one know how well it works keeping those little bugger's out. Two weeks ago was the breaking point when I killed 10 in one week. Some were in the tub, on in our clothes hamper (I believe he was in some clothes that I picked up.) I've been doing my fall cleaning since I missed the spring, due to a new little baby, and I've been pulling everything out and cleaning behind everything. My MIL told me to get some Ortho Home Defence stuff and I've been spraying all the baseboards and stuff, before I put the furniture and things back. So far it seems to have helped a little. I know living out in the middle of no-where doesn't help, but maybe tomorrow we'll stop having these unpleasant guests. I'm afraid to have them around my kids. Bryli learning to crawl and little Autumn not really knowing to be afraid of them. EEeoo!

Bryli has also been trying a little food. She's pretty funny about it, and wasn't so sure she liked eating at first, but now....well she is my daughter!

I'm thinking about going to my HS Alumni game in September, so that might be quite comical to see/attend. Who knows. My Brother cut his thumb working on some sprinkler pipe, or something and had to go get 10 stitches, plus they had to cauterized his blood vessels, so poor big bro. They did con me into watching there kids, while they went out on a date though. Ha ha ha ha. We just sat and watched Scooby-Doo and then played outside, so it was really hard to babysit!!!

Anywho, we're going to go to Payson for Ryan's HS reunion, and Cambry starts school, and Bryli is learning to crawl, and my house is being invaded by killer spiders, but other then that, we're having a delightfully wonderful summer, and beginning fall. My garden is feeding us some yummy carrots, squash and hopefully soon corn. Hope it's great for everyone else.

Family Pictures

Monday, June 22, 2009


So sad day. I've lost my camera!!! I got to go to Girls Camp for a day while my friend Beth, watched the girls. It was soooo much fun, but it also made me miss Camp that much more, due to only getting to go for one day. But we had a scavenger hunt, and it rained on us, and we got to do a few other things, and then we had testimony night and it was awesome. I had my camera up there and took a bunch of pic's but then I had to leave, and I remember putting my camera in the truck, but I can't remember taking it out....Possibly it's in the pile of rain coats and umbrella, but so far I've not had any luck finding it.

It's rained here for the last 3 weeks straight. We've broken all rain records, and my little garden is starting to grow nicely. Some of it got washed out, and my beans got munched by some bug, but other then that, my stuff is doing good. I have a tomato on one of my plants, so I'm very excited. We'll see how it goes, and hopefully I'll have lots of yummy things up!!!

Bryli can now roll everywhere, and when she's really frustrated, she'll scrunch her legs up under her, and poke her little bum in the air, then push with her legs and slide forward....I'm sure she'll be crawling before we're ready. She's been a little slobber monster lately, so maybe her little teeth are starting to come in!! She's 4 months now, and sweet as ever. She can still kill your ear drums if she's crying at the top of her lungs, or when she's playing she will squeal really loud, but it's fun to watch her grow and learn. She still has all her hair, though it's lightened up, and the stuff coming is is blonde, with a possible red tint....we'll see. She has worn a bit of a bald spot in the back from looking at everything so much, but she has plenty of hair to "cover" it up!!! ha ha ha

Well hope all is good for everyone else, please pray for me that I might find my camera!!! Otherwise, I guess I'll just have to get a new one....(oh darn).

Blessings And Birthdays

Bryli's blessing day was a delight and joy. Aunts and Uncles from Pocatello came. G-ma's and g-pa's from Payson and Logan came. And Auntie's and Uncles also from Payson and Logan came. We had several other friends from here come and join us, and all in all it was a delightfully beautiful blessing day. Here is a full picture of Bryli in her blessing dress.
Yep I stuck one of those huge flowers on her head.....I'm trying....

My sweet little girl!

Here's my cute little family!

She's a little excited about some of the things she got for her birthday!!!

Giraffe Cake that I made for Autumn. It was yummy!!!!
Happy little girl, opening presents.

On your mark....get set....and.......

Cambry with all her loot!!!

All in all we've been having a lot of fun the last few months. Bryli will laugh now and is very ticklish. She smiles and coo's and the girls love to sit around her as she "talks" to them. She has learned to roll over all the way, so she isn't safe anywhere, but on the floor, and even then you have to watch out with the rocking chair. She still has her killer cry, and does still hurt the ears if she is held up by them when she is going off full throttle. She is very sweet, and sleeps through the night, and is a delightful addition to the family. Ryno has been working on a remodle job for MBA Contactors, and seems happy with things, though yesterday was an acception to the rules. Right as they were getting ready to leave, one of the guys was driving back the big equipment and hit the water main......Ryno said it was a 50 foot gyser. He had to stay an extra 3 hours trying to clean up, and help fix the problem....he came home soaked and very, very upset.

I've started a garden, and despite a slow start, somethings are starting to come up. The corn is making a showing, my beans got eaten by bugs, my spinach is up nicely, along with beets, carrots, squash, though my pumpkins I've already had to thin... My cucumbers haven't come up yet, and my peas are just starting. All in all my first garden is growing, though I fear for my tomatoes. I love home grown ones, but mine are still looking a little droopy...

We've had some killer weather lately, and we swear that we've never seen this much rain. It will just pour and pour all day long, but somedays there's a bit of hail added in, which doesn't make me and my garden too happy. But all in all we're having fun and enjoying ourselves. We hope everyone else is having a delightful start to their summer!!!
