American Idol preview

I am waiting for my camera to upload pictures of my awesome AI experience (Noah took it camping.) I also want to blog everything about it so when I have more time and pictures, I will give my in-depth experience. It was a great time!

No more....

Well, no more worries about teaching lessons to ward members 3 times my age. Now I get to teach lessons to girls right on my maturity level. Hooray for being the new Beehive advisor!

Sunday School Lesson

Oh joy.....I get to teach the "Law of Chastity" lesson today. I am not so excited and pretty uncomfortable with the topic. I don't like talking about sexual relations to members of my ward that are 3 times my age. This is going to be great fun!

The News

ARE YOU SERIOUS??? Our dumb dog Chaquita is pregnant! What the????? Anyone out there want to give me some pointers? I haven't a clue on this since I have never attended to a whelping dog. I have been doing research and watching videos. Seems easy enough for me but I am worried about Chaquita. I love that dumb dog and don't want to see her in pain. Plus she is around 7 years old (we don't really know for sure) and she has had 2 previous litters so I am worried that she will be okay. Anyway, that's the good/bad news. She's getting fat and lazy. I am guessing (since we don't know when this happened or who did it) that she is due about the first week in August.

Back to normal

Well, now that Miss Utah week is over, we can try to get back to normal. It was such a fun week! I am glad I got to be a part of it. I had my favorites for the title and unfortunately, none of them got it but I do really like the girl chosen. She is a darling girl and will do a great job. I had so much fun with my friends. Carpooling together and eating after the pageant. My mom and Jean did an amazing job and it was a wonderful production! Today is laundry day since we are running low on everything! We are also low on food so I need to get to the store. We are sick of eating sandwiches for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I need some new (and easy) meal ideas. Any suggestions???

Happy Birthday AnnaBelle!

Wishing a Happy Birthday to our sweet daughter AnnaBelle. 4 years ago we were blessed with the most beautiful and sweet child. Today we went to Liberty Land to celebrate. The girls loved it! It was a fun day.

I know it looks like they're worried but they loved it!

Fun with the Fam-Damily

We had a fun week this week. On Wednesday we headed to Lava Hot Springs for the 4th of July with my entire family. Other than almost drowning in the river and breaking my ankle and wrist, we had a great time. We went to a swimming pool there, tubed the rapids, and played at the sud fest. We watched dozens of people set off illegal fireworks that they no doubt went to Wyoming to buy and then we watched the Lava fireworks on the hill (do they have laws in Idaho?) We came home on Saturday afternoon after being pulled over for expired registration and Noah's expired license (oops, that's gonna be a hefty ticket.) Not an hour later, we had the trailer packed to go to the McKinnon family reunion in Hobblecreek canyon near Springville (might I add, that I am a little "camped-out?") We stayed up there for dinner and came home Sunday morning after breakfast. It was good to actually meet that side of his family (and not just me, it was the first time Noah had met some of his cousins.) We had a Sheriff behind us and of course the trailer isn't registered either (what is our deal?) but he obviously had another agenda because he didn't pull us over (after a few prayers.) 2 different vehicles in one day with expired registration and Noah still having the expired license....... I think they would have cuffed him. Anyway, we had a great weekend. Miss Utah week is here and it's going to be crazy! All of my mom's hard work all year is going to pay off come Saturday! Tomorrow is AnnaBelle's birthday. The BIG 4 years old! She is so excited she can't even stand it. Such a cutie!
