Yesterday I popped into my sisters house.
After a few minutes I noticed her 1 1/2 year old was missing.
"Where is little L?" I asked. Her reply makes me laugh even now.
"Oh he is out watering the garden!" Sure enough the little guy was!!

  • Life is just so daily!!

    *The time I opened my sisters vacuumed filter and thought I saw a cat. (It was just fulla dust)
    *It is hard to drive on the free way when  and air show is going on right in front of you!
    *People do indeed still use flip phones!
    *Going to Bear Lake and getting a killer sunburn and then giving a talk in sacrament meeting the next day makes for major drama mid talk!! (poor girl). (not me).
    *When you wonder if your nephew really like you or your water bottle more!
    *When you get a hair elastic stuck and all you can do is cut it out!
    *When you are willing to drive around a parking for 20 minutes to get "the perfect spot" but you'll walk a mile to park in the shade!

    I just read this book. I have always enjoyed Minerva's work
    even before I knew about her. It is soft looking. It is beautiful!

    Minerva lived in the wilds of ranch life! She worked hard and
    painted much. She was a woman of strong will! She knew what she wanted
    and worked till she got it! She never did the expected! She wasn't quiet
    and demure. Her favorite color was red!
    There is something red in all her paintings.

    You have got to read this book!! It is a Little House on the Prairie mixed The
    Unsinkable Molly Brown. I hear copies are hard to come by
    but can be seen at DI.

    Happy Spring!!

    Welcome Spring!!

    *It is warm today!! Like shuck the jacket warm!

    *Yesterday I was having a tiny phone issue!
    My 3 year old nephew prompted me to "Just click on
    the cross hatch!" by golly it worked!!
    Smart kid!! P.S. What 3 year old says cross hatch?
    *Same three year old nephew asked me
    if I wanted to "hear the funny noise the cat
    makes when I squeeze him!" I told him no!
    * I could never be a farmer. Way to much poop is involved!
    * I can do things but don't want to!
    * I love that my tiny sister shares my addictions ! ! Casey Neistat
    is so fantastic!!
    *Sadness new shoes only stay new for a minute!!
    *Puppies giving birth is painful even for the person watching!
    *People are "nose blind" it is a thing!!

    Happy Spring!!

    You Auntie?

    Today I took my sweet nephew out on a hot date!! He is three. I wear glasses ALL THE TIME. He saw me w/ out said glasses. He walked into a wall because he was looking at me like I had come in his home in a chicken costume. He asked me no less then forty time if I was truly his Auntie! "Are you my Auntie?" "You Auntie?" Over and over!! I am laughing my head of typing about it!! I LOVE that kid!!!

    Conversation I had yesterday!
    T: "Auntie would you like to play a game
    where you get a box delivered and you
    think it is full of little puppies but it is really full of me!!"
    Serious tender mercy's yesterday. and just in the nick of time!!

    Yesterday I was having a conversation w/ my brother in law
    about all the education my little nephew was getting
    at his twice weekly preschool. My brother in law stated "Theodore
    is learning his letters and letter sounds and his numbers. "Theodore what
    comes after seven?" Theodore w/ out missing a beat stated "MAY!"

    Later that day grumpy little Theodore stood at the back door yelling
    "Dadddyyyy Hey Daddddy! Do you want to play w/ your favorite little boy?"

    I took my one year old tiny shopping about mid shop
    he started waving his hands telling me (in baby sign)
    that he was "all done". What a smart little cricket he is!!
    Oh I love him!!

    I love my nephews!! They are the best little people
    I know! Today I had the chance to spend some
    time w/ my best friends Eli and Isaac!
    Eli and Isaac both had runny noses
    and weren't feeling the best.
    Eli even told me he died and layed on the couch
    for a few minutes. (That isn't like him). Eli
    got out all the toilet paper and paper towels
    in the pantry and made towers for quite
    a few minutes. I sat on the floor next to him
    and looked something up on my phone.
    I then had to quickly grab his brother in his room
    and set my phone down. I came back later and
    couldn't find my phone ANYWHERE!
    I even pulled out the fridge.
    I then lost Eli. He had opened the front door and ran
    away! when I caught up w/ him he was on his
    way to Las Vegas I'm sure!
    I decided I needed to bring out the big guns!
    The sand box it was. It was warm outside and I needed
    a drink I stepped in for 2 seconds and
    came out to Isaac who is normally
    a total tow head sporting chocolate milk
    covered hair and every inch of his body had sand on
    it or in it. Not to mention the new sandy facial hair.
    I then decided baths were in order. I filled the tub 
        and Isaac cried bloody murder while I tried to quickly
    wash the sand from his soft body.
    Eli tried to get as much water out of the tub in
    the shortest time possible.
    We got re-diapered and turned on a show.
    My sister came home and knew which hidey hole
    to check for my phone. But right before we
    looked in the right place we looked under the couch.
    There sat 6 green apples w/ little tiny bites taken out of each one
    and then lovely lodged behind the couch.
    Wonder who did that?
    My sister is on call for those little sweeties 24/7.
    She is Wonder Woman! I am not and I need a nap!! 


     Upon seeing my nephew at the wedding (My brother's) I asked him if he would like to go on the elevator. For a full hour later he was upset with me because I would not show him the "alligator" I had suggest he ride upon his arrival. Elevator and alligator do sound similar! Poor fella!

    Long time no post!! I have been busy!

    *Two week notice for a no budget impromptu wedding. I felt like The Little Red Hen!!

    * A birthday filled to the brim w/ goodness!!

    *Blood pressure through the roof...killer side effects!!

    While playing w/ my nephew 3 and his friend I ask what they wanted for Christmas.
    Friend: I want a remote control car, air plane and boat. I told him that was gunna cost Santa a lot and so he stated that he only needed one.
    I then asked my darling nephew what he would like. He looked at my w/ a total dead pan expression and said "A magic wand so I can turn my self into lots of different people!!
    What in the heck? This kid is the silliest ever!! I then taught them how to eat sunflower seeds right out of the flower! Time well spent!

    *The leaves are falling! I love my boiled wool slippers even more. The days are darker and over cast and I am reminded that I am solar powered! *The bright glow of the yellow leaves makes me happy!!

    Happy Fall!!

    Bee Still!

    My sweet tiny nephew has just begun
    walking. He is still a little wobbly.
    He loves to explorer his back yard.
    Often he is found standing in front of
    a flowering bush w/ vibrant purple flowers.
    He is looking close at the happy honey bees
    readying the hive.
    I love the look of wonder and discovery
    on his face. I love that he can stay
    still for a long time watching
    the quiet work of the bees.
    I love that he reminded me to "Bee Still".
