Dance Mania!!

I have to diverge from my normal blogging about my kids and post some thoughts on great so far. Not sure if anyone watches but I have been to a few watch parties in the past week with some friends and just have to post my favorite auditions. Especially since last night was SLC and Dallas in one night..kinda funny. Anyway..

The first one below is just downright fantastic!! Loved watching her dance..she's so great and I think she'll go far. Definitely my favorite so far!

This one is just awesome. I felt bad for her at first then I thought that she had alot of guts and put herself out there so shout out! Especially with 4 kids and from Pleasant Grove, UT of all places.. she was crazy! You get it girl!

This is truly filling my summer with fun tv watching! Love it..

Abbey's Baptism

What a great weekend this was for our family! It was such a awesome experience and even though having young kids is hard at times, these are the moments that are so rewarding! Abbey did so great and of course, I was a mess! I was already crying in the opening song. Abbey is very sensitive that way and cries if I do, so we were both tearing. Steve did so great with her and the confimation prayer was amazing..wish I would have written it down! Anyway, it was great to have family attend and Steve's dad was here from Oregon which was a so great. So many good family and friends attended and I am appreciative for all of them and what they mean to us and how they have made a positive impact in Abbey's life.

It couldn't have gone any better and I am so grateful for the Lord's hand in our little family's life and how blessed we feel to have these 3 amazing kids!

Two Big Events..and then some!

So wanted to update some happenings in our kids lives..
First of All..

Spencer is WALKING! We are really in trouble now! He is cruising around the house and having fun. Great for me since my back has been SO bad but kinda scary that he can get into whatever he wants now..needless to say, we watch him like a hawk!

Abbey just celebrated her 8th Birthday. Do I really have an 8 yr old! I am starting to get "middle" mom aged which scares me but it was so fun to celebrate with her. We went and got pedi's which she LOVES! Then I took her and her cousin and a few friends to movie and dinner. It is funny how different her parties are now.

A few days ago I also got some pics of her in her baptism dress which is coming up on May 24th. I had to at least share one now because they turned out great! She is so ready and excited for it. She really is so sweet and has such a wonderful, loving and FUN spirit. She helps me so much with the boys and I love having her in our little family!! Happy Birthday Abbs!

Also, we finally finished Abb's room with her surfing theme. Steve did an AWESOME job on the mural so wanted to share a few pics!

Behind Every Good Woman is a Good..Purse!

My Most Recent Purchase...

I can't tell you how sad I was that my purse was stolen a few months ago. I was upset about the contents, of course, but more so of the purse itself. I had bought it on Canal Street in New York and I LOVED that purse. It was a Dolce and Gabbana purse with these great stripes.

Anyway, it has officially been replaced by this new purse I just bought with fabulous giraffe print and red piping. I have wanted this purse for MONTHS! I have seen it with different women and most recently, my friend Amber had it when we went to Time Out for Women. I was like an 18 yr old again, flirting with the purse. I couldn't stop looking at it so I broke down and bought it.

It was at Sam Moon so the damage wasn't bad ($18)..thanks goodness for that store. This purse makes me feel young and trendy again..even though I am so not! I am on the road to recovery from my traumatic purse incident months ago..Yeah!
