I'll Treat Mom

Harrison our youngest comes home from school and says whats for dinner mom. He does not say whats for snack he says whats for dinner. I tell him I don't know yet. He says then how about I treat Dad and you to dinner at McDonald's only if you will buy off the 1$ menu and then I can buy a ice cream cone. Then he says William and Emily can use there cards and get there own dinner. I had to laugh. I thought it was so cute that he wanted to share.

Frabic Memo Board

OK so Jan. 19 which was a Wednesday. I got really board and decided to go to Hobby Lobby. I can spend hours in this store. But only had 30min. left before I had to pick up my son. So I moved quickly. First I stopped at the Cricut row and bought some more stuff for that. Then I moved very fast to the fabric section walk around and around found this cool looking fabric and of course I love pink so I had to get it knowing full well that I had no place in my home for a fabric photo board that is pink. So thinking Emily would like it I bought it and all the stuff to make the board for her. I picked up William, headed home and begun my project which turned out cute. Was so excited to show it off to the family. They loved it! Emily said mom why don't you try to sell it and see if you can make some money, Ken said the same thing. So why not, I already have a account and all my other product sold quickly why not try it. So I listed it and now I'm just waiting to see if it will sell. Maybe this may turn out to be one of my new hobbies.

Christmas 2010

2010 was a long year of changes in our lives, some good and others bad!

Ken had to work hard to keep the company going during hard times. I started out working for the school but ended up having a accident at work and had no other choice but to leave the job. I tried a new job working close to Ken at the office, which worked out good for a short time until our children and a few things got in the way. Ken and I decided it would be best if I stayed home and take care of what needed to be done at home. Money was tight but family comes first. William our oldest is loving life. He is 15 getting ready to turn 16. He attends Primivera High and is almost done with his sophomore year. He has a new hobby, collecting swords and knives. He is looking forward to taking fencing class this year. He was able to take a two week trip with his Grandma and Grandpa Bowlby to study Church history and spent time in Missouri with them. This year he will turn 16 and will be able drive. I'm scared about it but can't wait. Emily is growing up so fast. She is in 7th grade and attends Bogle Jr. High. She ran cross country and did a great job and sang in choir. She is 12 getting ready to turn 13 and in young women's and loves its. Her favorite things to do are babysitting, talking on the phone, Internet, and her new thing is her itouch. Harrison our youngest is having lots of fun turning into a preteen. He is getting ready to turn 12 this year and will be in the young men's program at Church. He is really into long boarding and video games. He is looking forward to graduation from elementary school and be part of the Junior High world.
