Walmart Trip #9,994,532

If you ever wonder what it's like to shop with three kids in ya go. Walmart sees a lot of the Tueller grocery budget every month. Three growing kids with healthy appetites make this store the wisest one stop shop. You wonder why the shelves look bare in the back ground. No it's not that we have bought the store out. It is that our favorite store is remodeling. After we visit the toy department though it is time to get down to business and get the groceries. After finding what's on our list and telling the kids that can't have everything they want. I make my way to the check out and then out to the car to load up...I'm sweating. It's a lot of work!

Happy Birthday Krista!

And you thought the pictures I had of Ashlee were oldies...I thought I would bring out some classics. I hope you had a great day and I just wanted to let you know how much I love you. I am so blessed to have such a wonderful sister. You are an amazing example of a wonderful mother and wife. I look up to you and admire you. Love you, Stacy

Happy Birthday Karson!

Hey cutie, your favorite aunt here. I hope you had a great birthday and I can't wait for us to come rock out with you tomorrow night at your party. Just wanted you to know that we love you and that we were thinking of you on your special day. I remember when you were born thinking how cute you were and how I hoped I had a daughter one day that could be your best buddy. Thank you for being such a good friend and cousin to Dani. I know she loves you so much and wants to be just like her cousin Karson. Have a happy happy birthday!

Love, Stacy

Dani's First of First

Dani now is a big first grader as of today. After completing her check list last night of shower (check), jammies (check), pick out outfit (check), make lunch (check) she ventured to bed with I'm sure a bit of anxiousness. Now if you know Dani you know she likes her sleep and is never out of bed very early. This morning was different. She popped right out of bed to come running to daddy to say get up, you need to take me to school to day! Here she is at the door with her Hannah gear (backpack, lunch box and shoes). Can't wait for the report on how the first day went.

Ode to Ashlee

Happy Birthday Ashlee! Let me tell you about how wonderful you are. You are so beautiful, smart and make us all wet our pants funny.

I love it that you are my sister. I love it when I come see you in the salon and you make me feel beautiful even when I'm having a bad day. I love it that my kids have a "favorite aunt". I love it that you have such a strong testimony of the makes me want to stay strong too. I love it that you are my friend. Hope you have a great B-day!

Love you, Stacy

Bear Lake 08

The August 2008 family reunion was filled with lots of fun and great memory making moments. We spent time all together which was my favorite part. I had never been to Bear Lake before and I can say I'll be back. It was a beautiful place to vacation. All five girls together...that doesn't happen very often. The grandkids are so cute together...most of the time... but hey who doesn't get cranky when you're overly tired and hungry. I'm so grateful to be apart of such a great family. Let's keep working towards that goal....a forever family!

Swimming Lessons

Dani and Brock loved their swimming lessons this summer. Both are doing so well and we think they are part fish. Brock has no fear and will jump right in and swim under water back to the edge only to do it again 50 million more times. Where does he get his energy? And Dani was a little scared at first of the deep end but has worked through her freak out and loves showing off her Elementary Back Stroke or as she would say her monkey, airplane, rocket. The swimming lessons will continue until they are on their way to the Olympics.

More Dirt

There was so much dirt on this kid I thought he deserved his own post. When we finally got home after the big day of play at sliver lake....Brock was sound asleep in the car. No way was I going to put this kid to bed this dirty so I ran the bath water. I didn't think it was possible for a three year old to sleep during a bath. He must of been so tired...I had to rinse the water out twice before I got the sleeping boy all clean.

Silver Lake

Here is the scoop on our day trip to Silver Lake up the American Fork Canyon. We survived the steep switch back road. Had a wonderful time wading and canoeing in the lake. Ate yummy chicken and veggie tinfoil dinners. Scarfed down dutch oven chocolate fudge berry cake. (My own recipe I made up.) And then Brock's favorite dirty! Can you see the layers of dirt on that kid? We were so excited to share the time with our family who had just flown in from Spain. Melissa Leo and Charlie still jet lagged I'm sure, thank you for coming with us! And thank you Uncle Steve for finding the spot for us!

Knee Surgery

Here is Dan after his knee surgery. He is pretty much back to normal now but it was pretty painful right after and still gives him a little grief now and then. The doctor is hoping to have him back at the gym by the middle of August. We're grateful for surgeons who can help fix the old and make it like new again. Did I just say Dan was old?...he is turning 38 on the 26th of this month.
