Frozen Hot Chocolate

If you haven't been over to Art City Coffee to try a frozen hot chocolate, you must do it. They are so good. I think about them on a daily basis! I know, I have a addiction to sweets maybe! When I went to New York back in 2005, we went to Serendipity and had frozen hot chocolate for the first time and fell in love. (Oh, and did I mention we sat an ate them next to Cindy Crawford and her family!) We ordered the mixes online from New York so we could have more when we got home. It just wasn't the same as having it made for you. When I saw that Art City Coffee was making them, I had to have one. I have to say they are just as good as Serendipity. On your way to Walmart, stop in. I promise you won't regret it!

Happy Birthday Mom!

I love my mom so much. She is not only a great mom, but she is one of my best friends. We spend lots of time together doing girl things like shopping, going to the movies, eating and making cupcakes! She is spiritual, loving, happy, smart and full of energy. She has always been such a good example to me. Thanks mom for all that you do! Have a Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday Grandma Judy!

I have the best Mother-in-law in the world! She is so lovable. She is such a happy, fun, loving, sensitive person. I love being around her and am so sad that she lives so far. She really lives up to her "Grandma" title too. She loves my kids unconditionally and there isn't anything she wouldn't do for them. Thank you Grandma Judy for all the good times and for just being you! We love you! Have a Happy, Happy Birthday!

The Tomato Bush

Okay, so I thought it would be fun to grow my own tomato plant, because I just LOVE cherry tomatoes. I picked a spot in my little garden next to my flowers, thinking it would be perfect. Let me remind you, the plant was only 4 inches tall when I purchased it.  Ummmmm, I think I was wrong. It has totally taken over our backyard. Yes, that is my back door behind the bush! I just don't have the heart to trim it, because I want all the tomatoes. Watch out family and close neighbors, the tomatoes are on their way over!

September 11th.....

Every year on this day, I feel sadness in my heart but at the same time a feeling of pride. Remembering all the innocent people whose lives were suddenly taken from them makes me cry, but seeing this picture of the courageous firefighters makes me so proud. I love thinking back on how America came together and all helped one another. I am so grateful to be an American where I can be free and have a voice.

Spanish Fork's 1st annual Kite Festival

Spanish Fork City has started an annual kite festival. I don't know why they didn't think of this years ago, it's windy enough! Geeese! Nikki and I were husbandless on Saturday, so we the thought we would try it out. Ethan loved it, to say the least. During the remote control helicopter show, he was yelling so loud in excitement, that people were turning and looking! I have to be honest, my favorite part was my Diet Coke!
They had people flying kites from jet skis over the water. It was pretty neat!

And the final product! Ethan's little paper kite. He even got to fly it .

Happy Birthday Matthew!

This was a very special year for Matt, because he turned 30! I thought he needed a surprise party. I can't believe I pulled it off, but he was REALLY surprised! 
Since Matt loves super heros, I had to go with that theme. I had everyone come dressed as their favorite super heros and it was a crack up. Matt didn't know it until he got there, but he was Clark Kent. It was a lot of fun and I think Matt was in the height of his glory being surrounded by REAL super heros!

Happy Birthday Honey! We love you!

This was his super hero cupcake tower.

Singing happy birthday to the birthday hero!
Wonder Woman and Clark Kent (my Superman)
Batman was there.....
The Hulk 

Iron Man (sort of) I gave Iron Man badges to those who didn't have a costume. They look great!

A few Cat Woman

The Punisher and Storm with MY favorite Cat Woman.
Sam came as the Human Torch from Fantastic 4 and I have to say he should have won a prize. Look as those legs!
And what else, The Incredibles
Thank you to everyone who helped out and made Matt's birthday a good one!

Ethan's first day of pre-school

My little Ethan is all grown up. Today he had his first day of pre-school. From what he told me, I think he learned about bugs and snakes. He was so excited to go, I had to yell to him to come back and give me a kiss good bye! Ethan, am I THAT boring?
It was really funny, on the way out, I felt happy and free while Matt was saying how bad he felt for leaving him. You can tell who stays home all day with the kids!

There he goes!

I tried to get a picture of him with his teacher Miss Leber, but as you can see he has a hard time sitting still!
