Grad-a-Palooza

Today I went to two different high school graduations. Now with my SIL's on Monday, this would make 3 in one week, oy. I went to Orem High and Mtn View, as I have Laurels who go to both school. It was a zoo to find them afterwards, but worth it for the celebrations.



I'm gonna miss these gals now that they'll be out of YW but I am so excited for their next phases of life!

Darth and Gecko

 Look at this adorable fella in his romper. What a cutie.
 Haha I don't understand his faces, but I still love them.
I want to just squeeze his face, he's so cute.

Accidents happen

Since school got out, I have been on an organizing bender. I have nearly finished it all, at this point. There's just one more thing to do, and today was the day. I asked a friend of ours, Cole, to help me out, because when I tried to lift this stuff up the stairs, I couldn't budge it an inch. And with Husband at school all day this week, and the complimentary dumpsters the city set out leaving at the end of the week, today seemed as good a day as any. We had a dolly that we were going to use, but the tires were flat. So we grabbed some pumps and went to work. As we were pumping away, all of a sudden BOOOOM one of them blew. We were in the garage, and the sound was so loud, it sounded like a gunshot. Our ears were ringing, but at least we were all right.


We just had to use it best as we could, but we moved the stuff. The important thing of this whole scenario is that finally, all the useless garbage in and around my house is gone! My to-do list is done! I am so jazzed, let's all celebrate this.

Grad Time

Today is my baby sister in law's graduation day. Finally, she's graduated from high school! Good for her, good for her. We sat through an incredibly boring 2 hour ceremony and then we smiled and took loads of pics afterwards.



Since basically everyone in this picture is also in school, we'll probably be having many other graduation ceremonies in the next few years.

Brookies

I needed to make a treat for a family dinner tonight, and luckily I had some time before church to make them. Especially with this amazing recipe that was so easy.

Make a brownie mix. Any old favorite mix. Have some cookie dough. Pre-made, make it yourself, etc. Now, fill a muffin tin with paper liners. Scoop them about halfway full of brownie mix. Take a generous scoop of cookie dough, and flatten it into disc-like flat circle. Place them on top of the brownie mix.

Bake at 350 for 20-22 minutes. I forgot to take a pic after they were done but they were DELICIOUS. Even my brother in law, who doesn't really like sweets all that much, kept eating them, he loved them. I can't tell you how good these were. I think in the future I would make my cookie scoops bigger, I think they were a little too small. Enjoy!

I had a small baby shower at my house for my sister-in-law. There were some people inside and outside, and eating food. When people left their chairs and things, Cookie took it upon herself to make sure that their plates were clean, how nice.


Cardapalooza

We had Stamp & Chat tonight, and what a great time it was. Great food, great cards ,and great friends were in company.
We made some excellent cards and I can't wait to send these to friends and family.
