Rewind.....Back to School!

I'm am a bit behind! l0l! Here are the the first day of School pics. Dani is loving third grade. She's soaking everything in like a sponge and doing very well. She has a fabulous teacher, Miss Paul who has already called to tell us how much she loves and appreciates Dani. Makes mommy and daddy very proud. She is off to a great start.

Brock started full day kindergarten and LOVES it. He loves his teacher and all his friends in his class. (the entire class was invited to his b-day party...post coming later) He is learning tons everyday and also got high praises at parent teacher conference. His teacher, Mrs. VanStrahl is the best around and we are so lucky he has the opportunity to have her this year.

I am so blessed to have kids who love to learn and love to get up in the morning to go to school. It's has been and is going to be a good year!

Star Valley Weekend

Summer went by in a flash... In August we always make a trip to the Lincoln County Fair in Star Valley. It was a quick trip but so worth it. As you can see the cousin play was non stop all weekend. My favorite was on Sunday they made up a skit for us. It was titled "The Modern Day Good Samaritan" and Brock was the gangster that saved the day! :) We also went on rides at the fair... even mommy went on one. It goes to show I will do a lot for my kids! We also saw a Rodeo. Thanks Grandpa Tueller for getting us the tickets.

It's Great to Be Eight!

Eight years ago I became a mother to an amazing little girl! This whole month of June I've thought about how it was when I FIRST brought her home, got up to feed her in the middle of the night, gave her bath in the kitchen sink and snuggled up with her on the couch for an afternoon nap. How the time flies! I am so blessed to be her mom. I am also so blessed that she decided to be baptized. What a experience it was to have that special feeling in our home that Saturday. The baptism was wonderful. Dani got to hear talks from her Grandmas, hear her Daddy sing a song and also listen to testimonies of the truthfulness of the Gospel. After the baptism was over we met at our house for a BBQ. We served Dani's favorite Ribs and got to enjoy visiting with everyone. It was a success! All I can say is, blessings are abundant in my life. My sweet children, my loving husband, my fabulous family and all my wonderful friends!

Dani you make mommy so happy! I can't imagine live without you! Happy Birthday and isn't great to be eight?

Easter Festivities 2010

After every holiday I always ask myself, "Did we make good memories for the kids?". As you can see by the photos I think we did. I love Easter time!

We celebrated first with coloring Easter Eggs. This is serious business in our home...with two designers in the house what would you expect. :)

We then had the Easter Bunny visit leaving lots of treats and a garage and car for the Zue Zue Pets. (FYI Zue Zue Pets will be the closets thing to a rodent ever becoming a pet in our house!)

We also watched General Conference and felt the Spirit in our home. We then had a wounderful family dinner at Aunt Jenny's house ending with a Easter egg hunt the kids loved.

Growing up it was always a fun tradition to for me to get a new Easter Dress for Sunday. I have continued that tradition with my own family. I loved how the outfits turned out this year. Both Dani and Mia look so cute in pink. Brock who hates wearing tight things around his neck looked so handsome in his new blue shirt and tie. Life is good! ...and here's too making more great family memories!

What it's not December still?

I thought I better get the December happenings on the blog before Easter is here. :) I'll let the pictures speak for themselves. I feel so blessed to have the family I have and to be able to have the moments I do with them. December went by so fast. Don't you think? We had a beautiful Christmas. One I hope we will remember. Life is good! Time to break out the sugar cookies again for Valentines day! They were good...just ask Santa!

And The Winner Is?...Cancun 09

Some of you may know, Dan enjoys listening to Rush on the KNRS "family values" radio station every once in a while....OK everyday! Well his conservative talk show habit won us a free trip to Cancun. An all inclusion vacation to the Ocean Maya Resort. Ya I didn't believe it either until we were laying on the beach that first day in Mexico.

We renewed our passports. Flew in my Mom to stay with the kids. Packed our bags and off we went. We had a fabulous time sleeping in, relaxing in the sun, walking on the beach, and eating chips and fresh guacamole until we were stuffed. It was so nice to have time together with no kid interruptions. We actually made it through a meal with out a spilled drink but by the end of the 5 days we were very homesick for our babies.

It seems crazy that nine years ago in May that we were in Cancun for our Honeymoon. How time flies when you're having fun raising a family! What a wonderful trip I got to go on with my sweetheart, the five days in December of 2009 as well as the nine years being married to him.

The trip was and is a success.
