See Ya Honey


This is Hunter - he claimes to be Tessas FIANCE or as he calls it FEE OH'N SAY! When we carpooled last week he would get out of the car and say "See ya Honey" to Tessa. We are working on teaching her "Later Babe"


He's the same little man that was trying to make a move on the dance floor at the reception.


This is Tessa trying to remove the beautiful kiss that was placed right on her lips at the end of their romantic dance.


HERE ARE SOME CUTE PICTURES OF THE PAST COUPLE OF DAYS.



SHAYNA MAKING FUN OF DAD'S "BISHOP" LOOK

AUNT PAULA DOES HER BEST TO KEEP THE "TICKLES" GOING, IN FEAR OF VERBAL RETALIATION BY TESSA THE SECOND SHE STOPS. IT STARTS WITH A little tickle, THEN MOVES TO A BIGGER TICKLE AND THEN MOVES TO A STERN, LOUD TICKLE! SHE'S RELENTLESS AND AUNT PAULA WAS A SUCKER FOR IT. CAN YOU FEED HER GRAPES NEXT TIME?


IF YOU DONT ALREADY KNOW, THIS IS THE CUTEST LITTLE MAN KRISTALS EVER SEEN (I MIGHT HAVE TO AGREE WITH HER) SWEET BABY BOSTON 1 YEAR.



Here's some Total Momsense thanks Karen

I HAVE BEEN TAGGED AGAIN AND THIS TIME IM GONNA DO IT. I DONT DO IT BECAUSE IM SUPER LAME AND HAVE NO GOOD ANSWERES BUT I DECIDED A LONG TIME AGO IF SOMEONE FOLLOWED ME AROUND WITH A CAMERA THEY COULD MAKE A MILLION ON A SHOW CALLED "THE GIRL WHO MESSES UP ALL DAY LONG AND REALLY DOESNT CARE" (YOU WOULD WATCH WOULDNT YOU?) THE TAG IS "7 THINGS SOME PEOPLE MIGHT NOT KNOW ABOUT YOU"

1 I CANCELLED A FOOT OPERATION THE DAY OF, BECAUSE I THOUGHT THE DRUGS WOULDNT TAKE EFFECT.
2. IF I WERE TO HAVE ANY COSMETIC WORK DONE, IT WOULD BE MY LIPS, LOOK OUT SCARLOTT J.
3. I OCCASIONALLY TRY TO START SOMETHING UP WITH BILL JUST TO SEE IF I CAN GET HIM WORKED-UP (TO NO AVAILE)
4. I WANT TO WORK IN AN ORPHANAGE ABROAD SOMEDAY AND KISS AND HOLD BABIES ALL DAY.
5. I BELEIVE I AM 95-80% GREY - HAVENT EVER LET IT GET THAT BAD, BUT PRETTY SURE ITS TRUE.
6. MY HAPPY THOUGHT IS - AN AFTERNOON WITH A CLEAN, QUITE HOUSE (CHILDREN TOTALLY GONE FOR AT LEAST 4 HOURS) A PERIOD PEICE VIDEO, 8 -10 WARM CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES (PILLSBURY), TALL GLASS OF COLD MILK, NO PHONE AND BILL IS WELCOME BUT NOT NEEDED (I KNOW, THATS SAD) BUT I REALLY GET INTO MY MOVIES.
7. MY BIGGEST DREAM - TO HAVE ALL (6) DAUGHTERS AND THEIR HUSBANDS LIVE CLOSE ENOUGH TO GO TO ALL OF THEIR EVENTS AND HAVE LOTS OF GUTTERY FAMILY EVENTS - THAT WOULD BE MY "HAPPIEST" THOUGHT.

ALRIGHT MICHELLE, JACIE AND DANICA - YOUR TAGGED - YOU NEED TO TAG 3 PEOPLE!

IM GETTING MY OWN CAMERA!

KRISTAL & JASON CAME FOR THE WEEKEND AND SO THE CAMERA WAS FLASHING ALL THE TIME. I PROBABLY TOLD KRISTAL "LETS BLOG THIS" ABOUT 20 TIMES. NOTHING GREAT, BUT WITH A NICE CAMERA, EVERYTHING IS BLOGGABLE. MY GIRLS ARE ALWAYS UP FOR AN ADVENTURE, SO WE TOOK THE CAMERA EVERYWHERE. LIFE IS MORE FUN WITH A COOL CAMERA, I PROMISE.


ONE OF THE MANY FACES OF BREEA AND KAYLA


THE BONKING OF THE HEADS IN THE POOL.

I HAD TO CAPTURE THIS COOL BIRD IN MY BACKYARD


MAKING COOL PROJECT BOARDS (TO BE POSTED LATER) WITH KRISTAL, KOE AND AUDREA



I COULDNT LEAVE KRISTAL WITH MY KIDS FOR A MINUTE (SHE'S NOT TO BE TRUSTED)

I KNOW, WITH HAIR EXTENSIONS, LIP, NOSE AND OTHER PARTS JOB, 30 LB WEIGHT LOSS THIS WOULD NT LOOK QUITE AS SILLY

LUNCH WITH MY SISTERS MINUS ONE (TAMEE) PLUS ONE (JEN)


SATURDAY NIGHT BILL, THE LITTLE GIRLS AND I WENT TO A GREAT PARTY WITH THE FOSTERS, LARSONS AND BRADLEYS - GREAT FOOD, SWIMMING AND CONVERSATION. WE CAME HOME TO KRISTALL GETTING HER HAIR COLORED AND CUT IN THE KITCHEN, SMALL CHILDREN AND LARGE CHILDREN RUNNING AMUCK AND A FREAKY SHOW PLAYING. IT WAS TOTAL MA HAM AND THATS HOW I LIKE THE GUTTERY HOUSE THE BEST.



OUR MEETINGS ON SUNDAY WERE GREAT - OUR CHURCH SPEAKERS SPOKE ON THE TEMPLE AND THEN OUR COMBINED MEETING WAS BISHOP TALKING ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE OF THE TEMPLE IN OUR LIVES. I AM SO GRATEFUL TO BE ABLE TO ATTEND THE TEMPLE. THIS IS A PICTURE KRISTALL TOOK OF THE TEMPLE. I LOVE IT!

What spice (or condiment) is Tessa?


I watched a dumb show called "The
Mystress of the Spices" and was taught
that everyone has a spice (I threw
the condiment thing in there for fun)
My Danica is calming and easy-going,
so she is that herb tea stuff. She
makes everyone around her comfortable.


Now Kayla, she's Ranch Dressing.
Everyone loves ranch with every-
thing. Kids especially love ranch
and Kayla. She has been teach
singing/dancing workshops all
summer, so she has an extra
200 little friends that adore her.



(First day of School photo) Breea
in the middle is SALT! She makes
everything she does better. Super
positive and upbeat - everyone needs
a Breea.





Well, Mckenna, if she were a spice would
have to be a chili pepper. We used to call
her "Phsyco baby". Her claim to fame is
being the "Class clown" - I know it will
take her places!



Shes the wacko in the middle!


Yesterday, while the rest of the fam. was
watching a video, Shayna cleaned the
kitchen and then sat out food for everyone
in case they were in the mood for cereal
or toast - too sweet - she would be honey!








Yes, this is a major crack in Danicas
car window. Tessa, aka terror, wouldnt
get out of the car today so I finally said
goodbye, closed the door and began to
walk away. I heard a loud bang, turned
around, she was in the front seat and had
started jumping on the chair, cracked
the window with her head. Yes, she was
fine - the window is not. Later that day
we went to look at apt. for Dani and
Brennon and we were in the waiting room,
I took my eyes off her for about 10 seconds
and she was taking ALL the cookies off
the plate and placing them throughout
the office/waiting room. She was guaranteed
the cookies at that point and we left, me
not so happy, her with a hand-full of cookies

What spice should we give Tessa?
Brennon, its femmy to be a spice,
so dont feel bad I didnt find one
for you.
