"The Savior emphasized the importance of keeping records. And one of the most valuable records is the one you keep of your own life." Spencer W. Kimball

New Rectangle!

We got a new "rectangle" today as Desi calls it or the rest of us know it as a microwave. Our wonderful neighbor, Andrea, gave us their old microwave and oven! I now have a microwave above my stove! I love having more counter space! As I used my new stove to make dinner tonight, I realized once again how long it takes to make dinner. You have the prep time, cook time and clean up time. I'm so grateful for my Mom who made dinner every night, even if it was grilled cheese or hot dogs sometimes. She always made sure we sat down together as a family for dinner and usually made my Dad put down the newspaper so we could have a family conversation. I love her for the effort she made even though I'm sure we grumbled and moaned. I really appreciate it now and realize the importance of it. I love you, Mom!

Poor Choppy

Thursday night, Charly decided to go into the laundry room and shut the door. I had left a heavy, framed mirror behind the door that hadn't been put up yet and it fell on her scraping and bruising her poor little nose. Thank goodness it's not broken!

Friday morning, we went to Boondocks with my family. Desi loves bowling and the merry-go-round. Charly loved all the space to walk around! And my niece loved the fan by the ball return.

Friday night, the sisters had a craft night and my Mom graciously took my girls for the night. We got a lot done and I can't wait to put up my spring things! Here are just a couple of crafts we did.
Saturday, we went to pick up the girls and I ran Charly over to Krista's to get her hair cut. I love it! It looks so much better than the mullet she had!
