Valley House needs your Help

I love the Christmas season. It is wonderful time to give back to those who need it . I started a little project in October collecting item for the Valley House. I used coupons to buy item that were free or close to free. Most of the item are travel size but every little bit helps.

I called the Valley House to see what the really need. The manger their was very touched to have some extra help. They are in need of bedding and dishes. They will take whatever you have of these items.

As woman come to the house the usually have no item with them. The house provides them with a safe place and fresh start. The have twelve studio type apartments that need to be furnished each time a woman comes. When she feels confident to leave she can take the furnishings with her. They are always in need of bedding and dishes (pots pans etc).

When I hear stories like the valley house I feel compelled to help. My life has been blessed a thousand times over. I cann't want t go through my things and find bedding. We have way to many blankets and pillows. Plus I am excited to clean out my cupboards and give what extra I am not using.

IF you have anything you would like to give you please let me know and I will come and pick up. Take it over to the Valley House before christmas.

Happy Birthday to me!!!

I turned 28 in November. Age is just a number to me. I truly believe you are as young as you want to be. You can't do nothing about getting older so you might as well go with it!
I had a wonderful birthday! Mike and the boys spoiled me with gifts and flowers. Mike's parents watched the boys so we could go out to dinner! My parents always call first think in the morning to sing happy birthday. Plus Mike and I went and saw Twight:) LOVED IT!!! My girl pals took me out to dinner too! IT WAS A PERFECT BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!

My love affair with coupons!

If did not already know I am mad in love with couponing. I have a blast finding the hottest deals. I bought almost 200.00 dollars worth of food for under $15.00. Thanks to!!!

Little Buddies!

Kenyon and Dylan are at a wonderful stage. They play really well together. Kenyon is sweet with Dylan. He is alway willing to share with him. Dylan just wants to be by Kenyons side. I can not wait for a few more years to go by so Bray can join in.

Halloween Highlight!

Halloween is one of our favorite holiday! Mike and I have fun dressing up. We mostly enjoy the excitement of the kids.

Craving pumpkins with little boys was not going to happen so we painted them:)

Kenyon loves pirates! If you notice his foot up on its is his pegged leg!

Braylon loooovvvvvvveeeeeesssss candy. If you notice closely he has two suckers in his hands. After we were done trick-or-treating he would not let them go!!!!!!

Our ward party!

Kenyon's face cracks me up! He road his bike from house to house collecting his candy!

Mike had an AWESOME costume! He was Pee-Wee Herman.!!!!!!!!!!

I dressed up as a sixties go-go girl! My whole goal was to pull off a beehive in my hair. No easy task!!!!! It was painful and difficult to achieve.

For about the last 3 years we have went to an adult Halloween party with some of our good friends. We look forward to it every year!!!!

One huge cheesy smile..................I know. But I want to show of the hair!!!!!!! I had a hard time getting the right effect with Short hair. It was tricky!!!!

Over all I thought we looked pretty darn good!!!!

We made spooky teeth out of peanut butter, marshmallows and apples. It was fun!!!

We had a blast at the corn maze! Cold but Fun!

Walnuts anyone?????

Fall is my favorite time of year. I can never get enough of crunchy leaves, the beautiful colors and the brisk air in the morning. One thing I will admit I am not crazy about doing is canning or working in my garden. I was taught the value of hard work and the rewards of canning growing up. I am passing these lessons down to my boys. They are little so most of the project is my but they have helped pull weeds (and a few green tomatoes)! We have a huge walnut tree in our back yard. This year I finally figure out how to harvest walnuts so the boys and I spent a few afternoons working on those.
