These posts are specifically for all the posts that never happened but were supposed to... all combined into one! Yes, I know they can be long, but humor me....it's just easier this way sometimes!
↑ Me and my cousins (or nieces or whatever they are!) Britt, Candi, and Tiff, took my Mom out to lunch for her birthday at Olive Garden. I LOVE OG! I had my fav Chocolate Almond Amore' drink and lasagna! Doesn't get better than that!
I am never sure what to call them because technically they are my cousin Shelley's girls, which would make them my second cousins, but that sounds soooo distant and we are way too close to be so distant! Their mom Shelley, who passed away a few months ago, is my Mom's niece, but she and my Mom were raised more like sisters. So my Mom is more like an Aunt to them. Confused yet? Me too! Whoever they are...
I put this on just for you Mom! ↓
My boys telling their cousin Trevor goodbye for TWO years the night before he left on his mission to Mexico.
Bryce and Trevor. ↓ These two won't see each other for almost three years depending on when Bryce leaves on his mission. That is a looooooong time!
We go to a lot of basketball games right now with Taylor and McKay playing. The above shots are Taylor's freshman team. He is #10 shooting the free throws.
My nephew and two nieces wanted to come for a sleepover last weekend. We had a lot of fun! They wanted to make cookies and I had these old Halloween pre-made ones still in the fridge I needed to use and so we made them. They snarfed them down! Nothing says I ♥ you like old Halloween cookies!!! ;o)
We made CREEPY CRAWLERS!!! Messy but fun!!!
I told them Max had to come along too. He is so cute...just a fuzz ball full of energy!!! A great time was had by all!!!
The bottom two photos ↓ is the reason why I need to repaint so often!
It was so nice to have a little more estrogen in the house!!!
Skyler was heading back up to USU after Christmas to finish his school year in pre-dental, but got an amazing job offer with the Home Security business he has worked for in the past. It was a tough decision for him to make, whether to continue with his classes or take the job. He went to the first couple of days to class and then decided to take the job. He had to move to Las Vegas and is now managing part of the business. Waa-waa!!! I loved having him so close! Guess I got spoiled. (No good photos of his face because he hates his pix taken!...dang kid!)
We got to tend my in-laws dog Koda for a little while - though not long enough! I miss him! He belongs with me!
He loves me...what can I say? ↓ Seriously he does! If Dave gives me a hug, he goes bolistic and starts to whine and moan and bark until he lets me go. Not in a protection sort of way, but in a very jealous sort of way. It is so cute!
McKay and his good buds serving at one of his bud's sister's wedding...again. These guys are going to be pros with all the sisters his friends have! At least pros at making sure the refreshments are safe to eat!
That's that....until next time!!!
