Happy 18th Anniversary to me

My cute husband took me on an "overnighter" for our 18th wedding anniversary. We went out to eat, stayed in a beautiful hotel, went to a movie, and I got a new wedding ring. I have wanted something else for a while now, and I was so excited to get one this year!

I sure love my husband putting up with me all these years and I love spending every minute with him. Thanks for the last 18 and looking forward to the next 50!

I love you!

State champs!

I know this post is two months old, but I had to blog about Lehi High School soccer taking state in soccer this year! It was amazing to see such talent work together to get the title this year. Little ol' Lehi did it! Logan was privileged because he was asked to dress varsity for the championships. Even though he didn't get any playing time, he was able to practice with the team and sit on the side cheering them on! He can taste it for next year and we're hoping he will get that varsity time he has wanted for a couple years now! Way to go Lehi. You deserve it!

Miss Utah 2010

I am finally posting pics from Miss Utah this year. It was so much fun. I never think I can love my new girls as much as the ones from last year, but every year I do! I had four amazing, beautiful, and talented young women! I had Tara Lemon, Erica Smith, Rachelle Harrison, and Bridgette Sulser. They got along so well and I was sure they were best friends before they even got there. I felt so blessed to have been able to get to know these girls and to once again make some wonderful friendships. I can't believe the talent these girls have! They all did wonderful and I was so proud of them. I loved every minute with my dear friend Jenny. We look forward to it every year and once again it was everything and more! Thanks Jenny for a great time! It took some time to get back in the swing of things. I miss it already.

Garrett is now 10

I do love my sweet youngest who actually turned 10 a month ago but haven't blogged about it yet. My baby is in double digits. How is this possible.. I remember his birth like it was yesterday. It was such a hot couple of days. He was ready to come and luckily I was induced just a couple of days early. It was a good thing because I was admitted at 7:00 and had him at 1:00 in the afternoon where he came into this lovely word weighing 9 pounds 1 ounce. He was so chunky and pink as could be. With him being born so close to summer, I was anxious to get back in shape and out and about with him. We hit the Lehi parade only 3 weeks later.

Here are some things I love about Garrett:

His big blue eyes (we don't know where he came from :) )
His white hair
Tender and very large heart
Very contagious laugh
Desire to learn as much as he can
Quite the comic
Excellent at Math
Loved by all the girls :)
How he still snuggles his mom each night
Wants to do what is right and doesn't enjoy when he disappoints others.
Can hear him always singing something
Is the expert at Word Searches
Has a natural talent at the drums (Thanks Dad)
Is one incredible soccer player

I love you Garrett. You are very well rounded and I am grateful you are part of our family. You are quirky and sweet all at the same time.

Garrett chose to have a "soccer" birthday party. I know that is so original in our family. I am sure I have made atleast 3 or 4 soccer ball cakes so I was a pro by now. He invited most of his soccer team plus some friends from school. The kids enjoyed playing in the water, having a water balloon fight, playing a soccer game in the road, hitting a soccer ball pinata, and eating cake and cupcakes. He is grown up and teaches me something new each day.
