Little Professor's fieldtrip

At Wheeler Farm, this place is awesome!
This poor little Jonah did NOT like the ducks:

Why board books are a good idea . . .

I found this cute book at Anthropologie, I love(d) it.

I must have skipped the chapter on respecting property when I read it to Ava:

Just because

these make me happy

Sunday, September 21, 2008

It's true,

All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to MY angel mother.

Happy Birthday Mom!
Spoiled, make it your mission today. And every day.

Mom and Me, May 1977
Feel free to leave her a birthday wish in the comments here.

What's for dessert?

Let's call it:
Create your own waffle cake banana split dessert bar

(Don't forget the ice cream and whipped cream)
(Also, don't forget to run and extra mile or two the next day)

Love is . . .

missing someone whenever you're apart,
but somehow feeling warm inside
because you're close in heart.
This is my favorite decoration in my mom's home, she has said it is one thing she would save in a fire. This collection of heart rocks is from my dad. Whenever he went camping or outdoors he would find a heart rock and give it to my mom. Every once in a while she or a grandchild find one and it is a reminder to me that he is still with us, I am pretty sure he has something to do with them finding a new heart for her collection.

How to throw a FANCY party:

Step 1: Start with a fancy girl about to turn 6.

Step 2: Send out your fanciest invites to all your friends.
Step 3: Hand make an apron for each guest, using the fanciest coordinating
fabrics you can find, use ric rac, ribbon and all sorts of fancy trim and stitching.
Step 4: Gather all your fancy books, candy, ribbon and
balloons and arrange then perfectly for the centerpiece
Step 5: Invite lots of fancy girls and have them make their lunch
(complete with pink, red and purple bread for the sandwiches)
while wearing the fancy aprons you made.

Step 6: Make giant cupcakes with to-die-for buttercream,

add lots of sprinkles, ribbon, diamond rings and butterflies,

all glittery and fancy, of course.

Step 7: Let the girls eat have their cake AND eat it too!

Step 8: You can't have a fancy party without PARFAITS! Step 9: Make sure your name is Dawn or at least have some of her talents,

which include, but are not limited to:

Designer, Pastry Chef, Cake Decorator extraordinaire, Seamstress and party planner

Dancing queens

London, Katie and Julia

Today's saving

Before coupons and sales: $195.47
I paid: $31.50
for 53 items!

If you aren't shopping with coupons, it is time to start!

Are you ready . . .

for Some Football?
Between flag football, going to BYU games, and fantasy football
my boys are rather preoccupied for the season . . .
I guess I'll go shopping with the girls,
except when James is playing, then I'll be front and
center to cheer him on.

While James is busy being a football hero, his sisters are busy on the playground and feeding horses (the babies try to feed them a single blade of grass)

If she weren't my sister . . .

she would be one of my very best friends

Happy Birthday Aileen, I love you.
Enjoy Anthropologie and Pinkberry to their fullest.

She is SO fun, VERY funny, the BEST mother and SUPER generous!

Deja Vu

The 2nd 1st day of preschool. Ava and Addie thought they were going with her.

Tuesday, September 2, 2008

So it begins. . .

her first, 1st day of preschool.
You see, tomorrow is her second 1st day of preschool.
Don't ask.
(And please don't tell her dad he is paying tuition for two schools. )

I am sorry . . .

this is not scratch and sniff.

I am certain it is what Heaven will smell like,

freshly bathed babies smothered in

Baby Magic all cozy and happy.
