More Grandmas night!!!

At first Ellie didn't want anything to do with the playdough, but eventually she loved playing with her cousins, and the playdough.

In the morning, after our Krispy Kremes trip, which I forgot the camera, oops, :( we went swimming. They loved it. Of course we didn't have Maggie or Ellie anymore.




Here are Taycee Summer, Amalee, and Ray. After Krispy Kremes we stoppped at the dollar store and they each got to get 1 thing, Here they are with their choices: Taycee: fake nails, Summer Jo: Bug catcher, Amalee: polly pocket, and Ray: water squirter.




They all loved doing puzzles, we did this before we began our pizza, playdough, cookies, etc...They love eachother so much, and look forward to the times they can be together. I am so glad that Abram told me about His grandma, and that she did this. I am a lucky grandma to have such wonderful grandchildren, that love to be with me too. I know eventually each one will not want to come, but that is a ways away I hope.




Grandmas night!!!

Here they are: Ray, Summer Jo, Amalee, Maggie, Ellie, and Taycee. They are watching Bambi.
And here they are enjoying the homemade chocolate cookies, of course that is after pizza.



They totally loved the homemade playdough. And they even got to pick their own color!!! :)











We had so much fun!
I love grandmas night. They love eachother, and this gives them an opportunity to be together. I need to be more consistant and do them every month. Maggie and Ellie didn't spend the night, they are not quite ready, although Maggie will next time I think.

Mother's Day Weekend at Colorado River


Ashley, Dallin, and Summer Jo just enjoying, sleeping through the ride! :)

Taycee loved the water, she was a water baby!



Ashley skiing. She loves it, but doesn't get much opportunity to go, with having babies, and being so busy! We loved watching her go!











Amalee loves being on the boat, and goes every chance she gets. She even went tubing with Julie and Jenna.




Julie, Taycee and Jenna having fun in the sun!

Women's Conference

Wow! I wish I had gone before. I didn't know about it for a long time, and then when I did, I couldn't get away from work. I wish I knew that the girls only needed to be 16 to go. I took Julie with me, she loved it, and so did I. I feel spiritually energized, and ready to go. I love my Heavenly Father and his son Jesus Christ. I love the prophet and his apostles. I just love the gospel and feel blessed to be a member of his church. OH how spiritually fed I became. I could leave the world for 2 days, and renew myself with words of wisdom. I wish this was more often. If you haven't been, you would love it. If you have been, I know you know what I am talking about. Julie and I will always try to go every year. Next year, we are all going. My daughters and I. Exciting!!!!

Julie and I went to Women's Conference in Provo.

The flowers were so beautiful at the Salt Lake Temple. We stayed for hours just watching couples come out of the temple, and enjoying the weather, and the beauty of the temple grounds.


Someday that will be Julie, but of course not in Utah, at the Mesa Temple.






It was a tad bit cold, but oh how we enjoyed it.




Don't we look happy, and relaxed? We were!
