Girls Night

This past weekend was General Conference.  For the past three years or so that has meant a full house with lots of roommates, boys and friends.  This year was a little different. We did have young men over on Sunday for dinner, however most of the watching of conference was just us, home alone, in front of the TV.  It was a great conference, and as usual, I have much to work on and improve.

When Hubby and Only Son left for the priesthood session, the girls and I did a simple girls night.  It mostly consisted of Nail Polish and Chocolate!

This is just D1's collection- now we know what she spends her money on!

Of course we had to watch Tangled also!

It was a great time. I am so glad my girls still like to spend time with me.  (of course after the priesthood session when the young men where done, I was forgotten!)

Our St. Pattie's Day

First let me start out by saying sorry for the HORRIBLE photos

 My kids are older and not really in to the whole St. Patrick's day thing. I decorate of course and try to get them a little excited each year.   They do want to wear green, but not alot.  Here is what we did this year.

First our Leprechaun came very LATE  Wednesday night (or maybe even Thursday morning) and left these little green baskets filled with "gold"

For the girls I made these super easy but cute hair clips so the girls could have just a pinch  of green.
I even wore one. (sorry none for the boys of the house.)

For roadshow practice, I made green rice crispy treats--yum, we had some the next day!


On Thursday night we had, what else, green eggs and ham, but you probably have already seen a bunch of those photos (and I forgot to take some)

It turned out to be a fun day, even for those who don't want to celebrate!

The Happiest Millionaire

D3 was in the Spring Play at the High School this last week. She worked so hard and put in a lot of hours.  It turned out pretty good.

Her is a small snippet if you are interested

She did a great job and I am very proud of her!

Boys and Cookies

I know, Its been a while, lots to catch up on....maybe later.

So this last week D2 was home for Spring Break.  Its always fun when everyone is together.  We did lots of fun things like family photos, D3's play, dates and movies, and just hanging out. 

One night D1 and D2 had young men coming over.  I decided to be the nice mom (hey it happens sometimes) and made cookies for them all.

I made a double batch of white and chocolate chip cookies, probably 60 to 70 cookies.  Then I went to bed. 

The following morning this is what I woke up to.

Yep, that's right, 6 cookies.   Hmmmm.  Good thing I like them all!
