Girl's Night

We had such a fun time out with our Courtyard girls eating HERE in Provo. The company was enjoyable, the food delicious and the laughter contagious! I'm so grateful wot work with such a fine group of ladies. I'm also grateful that Abby is an honorary member of girl's night!

She's a NOODLE girl!


So happy together...

May I suggest the fantastic chicken curry!

Miss this past Courtyard face....

What a beauty!

Bekky's just plain silly...she abducted Abby's unicorn

Spinach For Dinner....

....Wasn't a Hit! I realized that I have never given our kids steamed spinach. Well, as you can see most of it ended up right back in my lap! Good thing Justin and I love it with a little vinegar. YUM! YUM!

Cinderella, Cinderella

We took these sweet girls to The Cinderella Ballet at BYU last week. They were such a delight! Abby said her favorite part was where Cinderella and Price Charming got married (mine too).
The sets and costumes were spectacular!

Conversation Hearts....

PARTY HARDY....would best describe our day yesterday. Except for the 2 hours I spent in the pediatrician's office with a sick little girl (strep test positive) who has to stay home from school. I love spending time in the class with my kids on party days. It was cute Ethan's turn. I want to give a special shout our to Mr. Hill who tapped into his "crafty side" and helped all these kiddos get their V-Day bags ready a few days before the party. That man is handy with a hot glue gun!

Happy Hearts Day!

We started out day with this goodness. It's seriously the best thing I've ever eaten...EVER!

Take one LOW calorie croissant :)
Slice it open
Stuff it with cream cheese and strawberries
Dip each side in egg and fry like a piece of french toast
Top with syrup, more strawberries and a little powdered sugar.

I'm in LOVE.

Tonight's big plans include a family candlelight dinner, dancing in the living room and this movie.
I adore it because it was one of the first dates Justin and I ever went on way back when.

Abby Hill

My little darling drew this for me at church a few days ago. I know that I have said before that she is an amazing artist. I love the hearts and flowers and love that I feel from looking at this masterpiece.

Well, Hello Mr. President

Isaac had his first oral report due in class today. It was a project that we got to work on together. He chose to speak about the life of Harry S. Truman. And while the "working on" part was a bit bumpy (because it cut into video game time), I have to say that the delivery in class today was excellent. We had Parent/Teacher Conferences yesterday. We are grateful to have three amazing children that are smart and well-behaved. Isaac's teacher kept commenting on his never-ending humor and constant concern for others. Love that guy!

Jazz Game

Miss Aubrey and I took our hot dates to The Jazz Game tonight!
It was fun to see them play the Chicago Bulls, even if they lost by 3 points.
It was a nail biter!

I Love A Good Read...

I just finished this one...

I adore this author, she wrote what is possibly my favorite book ever...
The Glass Castle.
It's worth checking out.
