Graduation 2008

My baby sister is graduating tomorrow! I can't believe it....she was only 10 when I graduated and moved out. The kids and I are headed down today with my sister and her hubby, anyway should be fun, it's always a good break from the cold. The best part is that when we get back, our kitchen floor will finally be done and my dishwasher will no longer be in my living room! Hooray!
Congrats, I love you Mandy Lee!

Mother's Day

So For mother's day Mike gave me an ENTIRE day off for BYU Women's Conference and a night of hanging out with the girls...of course, I forgot my camera, but so did pretty much everyone needless to say, I have postponed a posting because really, what fun is it without pics?

Well anyway, we started by leaving around 7:30 in the morning and headed down to find seats...the first meeting was so great, we heard from Sister Beck and Sheri Dew who both gave inspirational and uplifting talks about our role as women and what an important part we play in the world...then we all split up and went to different classes, all of which were so good to hear and I learned a lot about myself and my Divine role as a Mother and how to cope with the stress that sometimes comes with it.....anyway, it ended with one last gathering with everyone and learned more about our homes being like temples (I still have a ways to go on that one ;) )

We went to PF Changs for dinner....mmmm.....then did some shopping.....then rented a chick flick and got giant milkshakes....

I had sooo much fun getting to be just a girl for a day and not having to worry about anything. We had so much fun that we all decided that next year we're going for BOTH days and an overnighter in the dormes! If anyone wants or gets the chance to go, I highly reccommend it, I took lots of notes and still read over them to remind me of what I learned, I am so glad I got to go....Thanks again hon! (He got to hang out at the neighbors house and the kids played all day! How would it be?!)
