Out my Window

Today it was like this outside my kitchen window.I mean...What the Heck!!? It's April for petesake. I just want to go on the record as one who is in favor of Global Warming...alert the media.

Thank Heaven I had these...

These are the latest installments of paper flowers, and I have to say...I have grown addicted. I lie awake at night thinking of what kind of new flower I can make...sick I know.... I should be focusing on beauty sleep.

Easter thoughts

I hope you will all watch this beautiful video. I know that Jesus Christ is our Savior and that he died for us. Somewhere today, between egg hunts and deviled eggs, I hope you contemplate the importance of this event in your lives.
Happy Easter!

in the pink

Hello Everybody in the blog World! This week has been unbelievably busy but I love it when I go to bed at night and feel like I've accomplished a lot during the day. Last Saturday we took family pics at the Salt Lake City Public was very cool.
The only thing...... getting a decent family portrait out of our family is like herding kittens.
Kym, of Panorama way (and her lovely assistant "Adam") went way above and beyond the call of duty. When we get some pics back I will let you know.
(crossing fingers and hoping they turn out...)Sweet "E" Boy was in rare form :D

For the last couple of months my home has turned into a flower making Bizarre (yes, I Am spelling it the way I want to.) I have been getting ready for Jenny's (my niece) wedding in April. So let's talk Jenny....Jenny is the sweetest girl this side of the Mississippi. Think of little girls making clover necklaces on a summer day...and you have a vision of Jenny. She is all about whimsy and girly ( I know are tough, too...
.....don't get your girly panties in a wad)

Anyway, to the point-
we decided to do her wedding with paper flowers...and they are
so much fun!!
We are loving them. I have Kindle, Kit and Claire all helping and Cindy, Jo and friends have all been instructed on technique ( so they have flower bazaars going on, too)

This is just a small sampling....there are tons more that we've done,

I am seriously loving these!!

It's like having spring in my house..only different.

Today I finished making the wedding cakes!
What else...
pink Cherry Chip!
Happy dreaming tonight of Pink cake and
paper flowers!

chain of fools

I told you that I had many stories to tell of daughter #3. Today she is on a pedestal. Let me explain. When Claire and Jeff got married, (sounds like a sit-com) the very first April of their married lives, Claire sat Jeff down and said that she had been having some really important conversations with me know.... her "nether" regions. She said that I had advised her to see a doctor, which she did and that the Doctor told her that she had contacted Herpes. Of course Jeff completely freaked out. The thing about Claire....she can really spin it! By the time she revealed to him that it was APRIL FOOL'S day...he was already hyperventilating!

The next year, she told him that earlier in the day she had accidentally hit a car, but was so scared that she just drove off as fast as she could so she wouldn't get caught...."Oh, Jeff what if they got my license plate...." (Jeff is prostrate on the floor with a panic attack...)

Today, Jeff was really gonna get her. He was driving one of Rob's company trucks across Wyoming and called to say that he had a blow-out in the middle of no-where and there was no spare....(lame)
Claire: "...oh honey that's too bad."(yawn)

Later she calles him and says: "Jeff...Oh my Gosh, I don't know what to do!...Juniper(the dog) just bit Ephraim and they have to take him in for stitches...Kit is freaking out and I think we are going to have to put June down..."

Jeff: "WHAT!!?....Why did you let her close to Epraim...blah, blah(ready to freak)
Claire: "I can't believe it happened today of all days." (silence)

Jeff: "you are evil."

Maybe she's a good liar...maybe he makes it easy.I deem you the Queen of Fools.
