The Cousins Came To Visit!

My sister and her son Bennett Pumpkin and her Bonus Pumpkins BP1 and BP2 came to visit us from up north! They think it's warm! :) We went to the park and had cookies and played.
Then children started to dissolve. A 20 hour car ride and no sleep for my sister's kids and then colds for mine, will do that. So we parted ways. They girls and I walked home. We had fun!
Now my girls are down for their naps and it is time for me to get to the spring cleaning!

Cleaning Up and Taking Inventory!

It is that time again. Time to plan my meals for a month and do a humungo (like my new word? :) grocery shop. Unfortunately my cupboards are in disarray. I had to make a list for my food storage and for my groceries. Here is what I did.
I took all the stuff out of the cupboards. (It was a LOT!) And cleaned them out. This is what it looks like. (I hate my

And this is after I organized my spices and baking supplies and extra stuff.

Then I decided I wanted to do the other side too.


I am very happy with it. After I go shopping I will show you the rest of the cupboards. We don't have too many of them. (I will tell you why I hate them another time) I will show you food storage next! Oh, and I will post my monthly menu plan.

Why I am who I am!

There are several things that have defined my life and who I am and what I do. First there is my religion. I am a member of the Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Also nicknamed Mormons.

The values and beliefs I learn from my faith are where a lot of the elements come from that have shaped my life. Like love, charity, family, faith and provident living to name a few.

The next big thing in my life is my Hubby! We got married in 2004. My life took flight when I met him. He is my very wonderful, handsome other half!

Next came our fist bundle of joy came in 2005, little miss Sassy. When she came into our lives it became happier and brighter!

Then our second bundle of joy came in 2008, little miss Spunky. She came into our lives with her a roar! Our little family is complete!

My family and my faith are every thing to me! I heard somewhere that life is a classroom. I agree! I learn something new everyday and can't wait to share our adventures with everyone!
