I'm Home...

sort of. At least my body is home, not sure exactly where my mind is :)

I got home last night after spending two weeks with Al, Micah, and the kids. Also, spent some time with Ash, Daniel, and the kids. I guess I could have stayed longer, because Ron figured out how to wash his clothes- I was afraid he might be going in the nude, by now :) Just kidding...he did a great job taking care of things at home. Of course, GG also did a great job taking care of meals and such. I had some quality "grandma time", helping Al with Emmy and Dallin. Now, I need to get back to my normal routine and figure out what happened at my store while I was gone. I thought it was going to be great to sleep in my own bed, but I guess I was too wound up, or too tired to sleep. I assume, I may crater tonight.

Baby Emmy- 10 Days

This is Baba playing around with my phone. It is a snowy Sunday in Utah. Life has turned into the basics like laundry, eating, and sleeping. Wednesday was a good day we got all of the laundry done. Thursday was a good day because everyone took a nap at the same time :) We have gone out to the store a couple of times. There is a "Smiths" close by- it is like a super WalMart with groceries, clothing, home decor, and toys. On one trip there Al got to go shop the clothes while Emmy, Dalin and I cruised the rest of the store with a shopping cart :) Last night Ashley, Jaden, and Hailey came over and we made homemade pizza. We also had GREEN jello and GREEN limeade- that was the extent of our green celebration :) This morning we woke up to SNOW- that is "cruel and unusual punishment" on someone who has lived in Texas for 9 years :)

Here is my cute little towel cabinet, that I found on Monday. (I may not have seen this exact idea on line- but probably something similar.) It's a file holder- but it works perfect for small towels. Our upstairs bathroom is rather small and short on shortage space. This sits right outside the door in a small space between the bathroom and a bedroom. (Nothing like taking advantage of every inch of space :)
Now... if I only had some cute, soft, colorful, new towels. It would be even more perfect. (I am always torn between plain "white" that goes with any decor and going for some bright colors.)
Then... I might need a new color in the bathroom for those colorful towels.
We'll see where this goes- hehe.

Fun Thoughts

So... I am still playing around with "Pinterest"- I don't really know how to use it correctly yet- but I do know how to go grab fun things and repost them :) I'll try to get Nicki to show me the correct way to use it- until then, here are some fun thoughts. The last two are especially for Annie :-)

I love this one-

For Annie-

Eli is 1 Today.

Audrey is gone on a business trip-
maybe Sam gave him chocolate cake for breakfast :)

Actually...they had a birthday party for him last Sunday evening-
he had his chocolate cupcake then.
