Straight Outta Kindergarten!

May 30, 2016

How is it be possible that Elias' Kindergarten 
year is already over?! 

I swear, I just blinked and it was over. 

 Mac and I are so proud of him! 
He loves learning and is constantly trying to read signs, billboards etc. wherever we go. He did so well in math this year, that his teacher was constantly having to find ways to keep challenging him. 

We were told several times by his teacher, that he was exceptionally nice to his class mates and always helped newer kids as they joined his class. 

A special thanks to Ms. Legerski for being such a great teacher, and making school fun. 

Elias never wanted to miss a day, and always looked forward to going to school. 

Happy 34th Birthday Mac

April 26, 2016

Mac is not big on birthdays (or any celebrations for that matter), but in keeping with tradition... 

I make him a special birthday cake every year. 

This year it was a campfire cake. There are few people I know that love the outdoors as much as Mac, so I thought this was a fitting cake for him. 

 It's just a regular yellow cake with chocolate icing. 
The fire was a bit tricky. I made it out of melted butterscotch and red cinnamon candies. 
The logs are Pepperidge Farm Pirouette Chocolate Hazelnut Rolled Wafers

 Happy Birthday Mac!! 
We love you to the moon and back!

Laney's cowgirl party

April 11, 2016

My sweet baby girl turned 3 this year. She is the sassiest little thing, but oh so funny! I am constantly caught between pulling my hair out, and laughing hysterically at her antics. 

I was so excited to throw her a great party this year. I haven't been able to since her 1st birthday. Last year her birthday fell right after our move and I didn't have the time or the energy to plan much.

This year I decided to throw her 
a cowgirl birthday party. 
After all, we now live in the cowboy state :)

I ordered her dress from an Etsy shop called Ellura Sage. It was so adorable on her!!

This is her stuffed horse Nana sent just for her party. 
She named him Jorge...she's a nut I tell ya!
 The menu consisted of:
Hay - pretzel sticks
Cow Patties - no bake cookies
Gold Nuggets - chicken nuggets
Lil' Doggies - small beef weenies
Happy Trail Mix - Chex Mix

 I found this cactus idea on Pinterest. It turned out great, and was super easy! 

Just place a cucumber on top of a pineapple rind. 
The "arms" are small pickles held on by toothpicks, and then I stick several more toothpicks
 around the whole thing. 

She may not look like it here since I made her pose for a picture, but she was excited to have her great grandparents come to her party. She calls them Grama-Grama & Grampa-Grampa. 
Our sweet Aunt Lorraine helped make her horse cupcake cake. 
I love the way it turned out!!

Her favorite present by far was the princess tent she got from Grama Laura. 

She even let her Daddy come in, after much negotiation... haha!

We love you so much Laney Lu! We love watching you grow up! 
You are the prettiest little cowgirl and I hope you had fun at your party! 

Elias Star Wars Party

April 02, 2016

When did my baby boy turn 6 years old? I am not ok with that, thankfully he is still ok with hugging his mommy and telling me he loves me. I will take all the hugs I can get from this cutie!!
We celebrated his birthday Star Wars style. (His choice of course!)

He was so excited to be able to invite friends from school this year. He also lucked out because the same weekend of his party, Mac's family had a funeral, so there were also plenty of cousins 
in town to join the party! 

The decorations turned out so cute!

Happy 6th Birthday buddy! We all love you so much!!

Mac's Team Won the Hockey Championship!!

March 29, 2016

My husband loves playing hockey, and this year his team won their league championship. 
He was so excited, and I am so proud of him!! 

He is Risen Indeed!!!

March 27, 2016

I am so thankful to serve a risen Savior! 

If you don't know Him,
I encourage you to take that journey.

He already knows you, loves you, and has conquered death so that He can offer you a life of abundance! 

He is good, He is love!

Happy Easter from our family to yours!

11 Years

February 05, 2016

The saying is true...  
Time flies when you are having fun!

Today Mac and I celebrated our 11th year wedding anniversary! 
We spent our anniversary weekend at the Lakeside Lodge in Pinedale, Wyoming. 
It was cold, and the lake was still frozen - but it was so quiet and peaceful! We were completely lazy and lounged around in our pajamas most of the time. 

But we did make a special trip up to Jackson Hole to visit one of our favorite places, 
the National Elk Refuge. 

Happy Anniversary Macimus!! I can't wait to spend the next 11 years and more with you!!
