BYU Pancakes {and other random pics}

March 12, 2011

This morning we had pancakes. Just for fun, I dyed the batter blue to celebrate BYU’s awesome win last night over New Mexico in the MWC and Jimmer’s crazy 52 point record. Brandon is a big Jimmer fan so I made him a “Y” as well as a “32” which is Jimmer’s jersey number. It’s […]

Yesterday after school we all went outside and played in the snow for a little bit. It was beautifully sunny and pretty warmish, and the snow that had been super deep from a big storm over the weekend was beginning to turn into a wet slush. So Brandon and Annie thought they’d build their last […]

February 28, 2011

This is how Brandon slept last night: We got a new TV. It came in a big box that immediately became the kids’ new favorite toy. And apparently, if you throw in a load of blankets and random pillows, it becomes a comfortable new bed. I especially like the little step stool to make climbing […]

It’s a crazy whirlwind of rehearsals and several performances but in the end Annie and her friends had a blast together and did a fabulous job–it was worth it. While I loved Annie as a Peppermint Stick last year, she had lots of […]

June 15, 2010

So the end of the school year always brings a sense of craziness along with it. The kids (and the Mom) are always ready for school to be done, wondering if the warmer weather will ever come, ready to be done with homework and spelling lists and animal reports Teacher Appreciation Week and Field Day […]

Yep, the boy is mine.

June 13, 2010

Yep, this is how Brandon looked at a BBQ with a bunch of our friends from high school a week ago. Yep, he designed his shirt all by himself. Yep, it is lovingly titled “My BFF Shirt” with a list of, well, his BFF’s. Yep, that is a Nike sweatband on his head. And a […]
