After over a week of searching and test driving we found our "new" Dodge Caravan 2007 and brought it home on Saturday. Our old green one had 145,000 miles on it and so we decided we better upgrade before our upcoming summer vacations. It sure is nice to have automatic windows and locks. I know it sounds funny to be excited about that but I am lol. Sure I would have loved to have lost the stigma of driving a mini van but being the thrifty gal I am I realized it was the best choice for our budget.

This layout was made using a template by Chrissy Williams from the Angie'licious collection as well as paper and elements by Kami of Ziggle Designs called Ice Cream Dream. Seems like just yesterday Cheyenne was only 8 years old and now she is almost a teenager. Yickes!
This layout is made from Kami's brand new kit that was just released called Swing on a Star. It is full of great papers and elements for boy pages. Yes they would work great for girls too, but I was excited for a kit that was more for boys. Carson looks so little in this picture. It is so fun to scrapbook and look at the changes in my kids over the years. Thanks for looking and have a great day.

And yes it is that time of year already. I have mixed emotions about the return of these sweet little goodies. Cadbury Mini Eggs are my all time fav candy and each spring I am anxious for their return, but then I eat way too many of them and there goes my new year goal to eat more sensibly. Clayne brought me home a huge bag from Sam's club the day after Valentine's day. They are soooo good. Just thought I'd remind you to pick some up while you are out grocery shopping lol.
Here is a treat that won't hurt your waistline... unless you have to have popcorn to go with it lol. Just thought I'd pass along the code to you.
This post is becoming a bit random... You may remember a few weeks ago when I shared a bunch of info from the LDS Living magazine? Well, here is another great feature they offer. You can sign up at their website for their email listing and you will have a wonderful Family Home Evening lesson delivered right to your inbox each Monday complete with a desert recipe. I was very impressed. Ok that is all for me for now. Have a great day.

Here is the last update on our water damage. We finally have all the fans out of here. The walls are dry, the carpet pad has been replaced and our carpet has been relaid. There will be a little cosmetic painting that I'll need to do this spring but I count myself blessed that we were able to get away from this problem with this little of repair work. Don't know what the cost will be for All American renting the fans and putting the carpet down again, but I am just glad that the fans aren't going anymore - they were noisey and even more happy that we have things back in place again.
I want to share with you something I downloaded off the internet yesterday called UnZipThemAll It is going to save me so much time with unzipping my digi scrap downloads. It is a stand alone program that works on its own and is free. I love that if I have all of my zips in the same folder, both .zip and .rar, that I can direct the program to that folder and it will highlight all of the files for me. All I have to do is click to start and it will unzip all of the multiple zip files at once. Afterwards, the folder will have two files for each (the original zip and the unzipped). It's just a few clicks and I'm on my way to sorting my files. I hope you will all find this to be as helpful as I am finding it. I couldn't resist letting you know about something that has simplified my life. I love anything that makes my life easier lol.
Since it is Valentine's Day I thought I'd share something on that subject from Woman's Day magazine (Meredith L. Ritchie). They had a little tidbit about how to write a love letter. They suggest that each letter should be unique and tailored to the recipient. Here are some suggestions
- Make sure the letter is about what you have to say, not what Hallmark has to say.
- Start with a list of adjectives that describe everything you love about your man, then use the list to craft the letter. Or just pretend that you are writing a thank-you note and thank him for all he does.
- Point out the length of your relationship and how your feelings have grown over time.
- You can compliment the usual subjects like hair, eyes and lips, but praise them in a new way. A nice line is, "Your smile is my favorite distraction."
- Make use of those silly disagreements or everyday annoyances: "I love you in spite of your snoring."
Here is your big chance to write your own Valentine for your husband. There is still time to get it done. I need to take a bit of my afternoon and do this too. I gave him his gift early. I couldn't wait to show him the Heritage Makers book I made. It is titled, "The Story of Us" and starts from when we were engaged and marks the milestones in our lives from then until now. It is a fun book to see how we have changed in the last almost 19 years. I'll try to get some pages up on my blog in the next week to let you have a peak. Clayne brought me a beautiful arrangement of flowers yesterday and today we will be meeting at the temple to do sealings. I think that is a great way to spend time together on Valentine's day and I am thankful for the opportunity.
Tonight I will take a break from cooking and pick up some of those fun heart shaped pizzas at Papa Murphy's for dinner. Hope you are all having a great Valentine's day.

I am trying to be patient and not stress too much before we get someone in here to tell us what to do. I had a migraine last night and haven't had a full blown one for a few years so that tells you how stressed I am. One of the rooms effected happens to be Cheyenne's and she is acting like I am ripping up her room just to make her life miserable. This does not help my stress situation. I just want to slap her lol. I am not going to though. The carpet and pad is only 6 months old to top it all off.
Anyway....STRESS!!!!!! I'll lyk what we find out. Hope you have a good day.

What is his name? Clayne, Hun, Mr. B
How long have you been married? 18 years and 4 months
Who long did you date? 7 months
How old is he? 44 - but I'm not that old. He's 6 years older than me.
Who eats more sweets? Me - Clayne hardly eats any.
Who said I love you first? Me - I think - that was a long time ago!
Who is taller? Clayne - Most people are taller than my 5'3"
Who can sing better? Me - It is best if Clayne doesn't sing too loudly - it is ok in a congregation
Who is smarter? Depends on the subject. We balance each other well.
Who does the laundry? Me - always! He was fired long ago. He probably shrank things on purpose.
Who pays the bills? Me - and I like it that way.
Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? Clayne.
Who mows the lawn? Clayne - unless he wants to pay for me to go to the chiropractor.
Who cooks dinner? I do 98% of the time. When I'm gone it is left overs or take out.
Who drives? Clayne - I love to sleep when we are on road trips - yep, I'm great company. Zzzzz
Who is more stubborn? You all know it is me!
Who kissed who first? Again... this was a long time ago, but Clayne was pretty shy - so I had to start things up.
Who asked who out first? He asked me out to go skiing at Beaver up Logan Canyon. But before this date night, he asked me out again and we went to Wendy's and then bowling at Logan Lanes.
Who proposed? He did - but we had talked about it for a few weeks before he really asked.
Who has more siblings? We are equal. We both come from families of 6 kids - 3 boys and 3 girls in each.
Who wears the pants? Clayne lets me most of the time and the rest of the time he is smart enough to let me think that I do.
