Millions of Peaches, Peaches for me....

well, it's obvious I havn't had much time to blog, in fact I should be making dinner right now but I thought I'd share what I've been doing lately...

First: I turned 27!! My wonderful husband and friends threw a suprise party for me...Love them all, thanks so much it totally made my week!!

Second: We went to Pine Valley for a family reunion then hung out in SG for a couple of days...had a blast and "attempted" a family pic... I stayed for an extra day and visited Trish and Mikes fam.

Mike whistling and Madi trying to run away

Madi trying to rip out her headband and me trying unsuccessfully to keep it in

Ty and Madi at the splash pad...we came kind of unprepared but they had a ton of fun!

Third: Canning, canning, and more canning. I have never been a "susie homemaker" but I figured I better learn the art of canning just in case I ever needed to use it...well, being unexperienced, I bought three boxes of peaches thinking I would get two batches...ummmm yeah, I think I am all peached out!! It was very self-satisfying to see them all lined up after all that work though! ( I also did a couple of batches of tomatoes out of my garden)

Well, that about sums it up for the last month...I'll try to do better in October!

Football Season is Here!

Okay, so we're not really HUGE football fans, but we do enjoy a good game once in a while. Last weekend we had a chance to go watch the BYU game with our good friends the Harpers. We haven't been to an actual game in a few years so it was a lot of fun to go and be with the "fans"...they can be CRAZY!!

Good ol BYU Stadium...

well, usually on labor day we do something other than labor...however....Mike got up at the crack of dawn to work on our neighbors car and found that it had a blown head gasket....if you don't kn0w what that is, it is a huge job that requires tearing the motor completely apart. They worked from "sun up to sun down" literally. I was totally impressed that he was able to take it completely apart and put it back together and make it work! I don't know why he works at a bank when he can do that.

Good Job Hon!
