Our senior year book photos...think we've changed?

10th grade valentines dance
a quick photo before we left. My hubby is still one HOT BABE!
Schenpf Farms
Faith & Chance

This weekend was mine and Ronnie's ten year High school reunion. After MUCH deliberation I am really glad that we decided to go. It was fun to see how people have changed and how some people will never change. I won a three day two night trip in the raffle drawing, talk about my lucky night!

We also went to Schnepf farms and had a not so great time (both of the girls are sick). We cut it short after a long two hours.

Faith and her cousin Chance had their primary program today. Ronnie taught Faith how to lip sink before we left for church, thanks Ronnie! Faith sure is good at an EXAGERATED lip sink:)

I also checked out the new mall this weekend. I cant wait to go back. The atmosphere and stores are awesome! It will be my new favorite spot (at least six months out of the year). The new mall is outdoors. You gotta go!

missing post

I was playing around on my dashboard and accidentally erased my Wedding Tag post:( I would post it again but I still wouldn't have all of your nice comments. I keep telling myself that I need to print as I blog and put it in a binder. I am terrible about keeping a journal and so I consider this as my journal.

Beautiful Scenery

We all got a kick out of seeing these cowboys round up their cattle.

We left Thursday night for "little red" because Ronnie had a turkey tag. We were just up there two weeks ago and the landscape has completely changed. It is always beautiful there but this time the leaves on the Aspens had changed to gold and were starting to fall from the trees. Ronnie shot his turkey early Friday morning so we had the rest of the weekend to do whatever:) Saturday night my cousin Shanna who lives in Show Low had us over for a family BBQ. What a great party!

Pay It Forward

Friday night Ronnie, the kids, & I ate dinner at San Tan Flats with my aunt and my grandparents. I have been there once before but only inside. This time we ate outside & it is the coolest place! It has a stage with a live band and little fire pits all around where kids were roasting marshmallows. Now that the weather has cooled off I can see us eating there a lot!
Saturday while checking out at Costco I found out that my membership card was expired. That was an ordeal, trying to get a manager to let me go ahead & make my purchase. I went straight from Costco to Walmart for some more groceries. After walmart I pulled into the chickfila drive through, after sitting there forever I decided to drive to the chickfila on Power & Ray instead. Once I got to the window to pay I couldn't find my wallet. Yep, I left it at Walmart, the worst place in the world to loose your wallet. I drove insanely fast back to walmart, running a red arrow & turning right on a, no turn on red, all the while thinking about my debit card, our business credit card and gas card, temple recommend, gift cards to Dillard's and Express a receipt to BabiesRus for a expensive return I haven't made yet, how Ronnie was going to tease whole life seams to be in my wallet. I pealed into the parking lot where I found my shopping cart right where I had left it but NO wallet. I jumped back into my Tahoe & pealed into a handicapped space. As I was looking at the $100 fine & the handicap sign I thought "I am the last person who deserves to get my wallet back." I grabbed Faith & sprinted into walmart. Somebody had turned my wallet in! I really think that had my wallet not been there I would have burst into tears. Immediately I wished they could announce over the loud speaker a BIG THANK YOU from me. Unfortunately they don't do things like that. I will never be able to thank that person but I can PAY IT FORWARD by being honest myself and serving others.
It turned out to be a great Saturday because after that Ronnie & I got to go on a well OVERDUE date. I cant remember the last time we went out but I know it was sometime before May. I had my first babysitter ever! A girl in our ward watched our kids while we went to dinner & a movie. I was so nervous (hence why I have never had a sitter over before) I only called her three times in the 4 1/2 hours that we were gone. I don't know what I was worried about because Faith had a blast & Jaylee was sound asleep when we got home. Ronnie & I saw Game Plan, it was such a funny movie & fun to watch the ROCK, hehe:)
Conference weekends are always special too! I remember as a kid I thought conference was SOOoo boring but now as an adult I sincerely enjoy the talks, they are so uplifting. There is also something about hearing conference throughout the house & smelling something good baking in the oven that reminds me of being a kid & I love recreating it in my own home. After conference today I had my family over for dinner.
A crazy but lovely weekend at home.

P.S. I got the coolest pumpkins at Sprouts this weekend. I call them "vintage pumpkins" and I cant wait to decorate with them!

Southwest Art Museum Field Trip

Yesterday Ronnie went with Faith on her school field trip to the Southwest Art Museum in Mesa. They had fun looking at dinosaur fossils and at the live dinosaur replicas. Faith got to pan for gold and Ronnie spoiled her at the museum gift shop!
