It was just about 24 years ago that I was at my baby shower for my first baby. Most of the things I recievied were generic, because I did not know if I as having a boy or girl. NOW.....almost 24 years later.....I just had the awesome opportunity to give my little girl her baby shower for our soon-to-be born grand-daughter!!! IT WAS SO MUCH FUN!!!
This is the invitations we sent out
Here we are getting some THANK YOU's together.
MOM, you did a great job with these, THANKS!
They were perfect!!
Scott and I went to Build-A-Bear and made this
fun little bunny for Baby Laryssa. Scott named her
Good friends and family that came to celebrate with us.

Lots and Lots of GREAT gifts!

What a darling dress from Auntie KM!

I was so worried about this shower, and I don't know why. I was up at 3:30 AM and couldn't fall back to sleep. It was a wonderful shower! Lindsay got so much nice stuff. Little Laryssa is going to be the best dressed baby around! We are very blessed with wonderful family and friends! Thanks to everyone who supported Lindsay and Little Baby are LOVED!! Mom and Kristin...thank you too, could not have pulled it off without all your time and help!! XOXOXO

YSA -- jUmP oN iT!!!!

Last night our YSA (Young Single Adults) had a region activity at Jump On It in Lindon. WOW, what a place. Trampolines everywhere. The activity didn't start until 9:00PM. So we were heading to Lindon and had some instructions on how to find the place. You can actually see it off I-15 on the west side of the road. BUT...once you take the exit it's a maze to find it...especially in the FOG! Well, we finally found it and got inside and was thrilled to see so many YSA's there jumping and have a great time. They keep the building cold, so if you don't jump, bring a jacket!!

There was some pretty amazing stunts going on! They had some snowboard looking feet ware that guys were doing jumps and twists with. There are basketball hoops around the gym too and a few games were going on.
There were a few minor boo-boo's, but nothing a band-aid couldn't fix.
Some YSA's looked like they were break dancing!
We got home around midnight. Driving 5MPH in the dense fog didn't get us home very fast. But once we found I-15 heading North, we drove out of the fog. Working with the YSA's is a lot of fun for Scott and me. They keep us young at heart! We enjoy seeing these 18 to 30 year olds mix and mingle and become friends! NOW...if we could just get them to marry each other! LOL

OUTwith the OLD and IN with the NEW!

WELL...I finally got it! NEW CARPET!!! Yipee, Wahoo, and Cheers! We have been in our house almost 13 years, and it was a model home 1 year before we moved this carpet is 14 years old and in desperate need of being replaced! We called several places, and got 4 bids...and FINALLY made our decision. Lowe's outbid the other 3 place by $2,000....and that's a lot of Moolah!

I lived with this crease in our bedroom for 13 years. When we moved in, there was a creek when you would walk from our bedroom into the bathroom. So my sweet hubby, who is a perfectionist, decided he was going to lift the carpet and screw in some nails to stop the creek noise. Well, we all know what happens when you do that...the carpet is never the same. We really needed to have someone come and stretch it back into place...but NEVER did. UGH
Our stairs from the entry way to the bedrooms were turning BLACK they are suppose to be BEIGE.
While the installers were here, we noticed all these robins out in our front yard just sitting in our trees and on the snow. They would fly in together, rest in the trees, then fly out together. It was quite the fun entertainment since we really didn't have anywhere we could go without being in the installers way.
AWE....the new carpet in our TV Room.
Our Bedroom has NO creases in the carpet. WAHOO!!!
They even made our stairs look better by tucking under the lip of each stair.
I love our new carpet. I still can smell the new carpet smell when I walk into the house and love that smell! NOW, we need new counters and cabinets in the KITCHEN. LOL
