August Days, pt. 2

We were running around playing a few days ago and I realized Meri had band-aid art.

*Love* my man and his ways.

August Days

Just a normal Sunday morning at our place…

Top of the Morning!

Some mornings you just have to pop the screen out of your bedroom window and take a picture of the clouds! 11728826_10154503772292524_9129415765576263151_o

Tonight is the final performance of the Manti Mormon Miracle Pageant!! :)

Thankful for summer nights full of scriptural truth and hope.

A few pics from last night – love these little Nephites!

One of my favorite parts? Walking around barefoot everywhere and Meri’s cute observation that the warm asphalt “feels like cookie”. She seriously mentioned it every night! :)

And the ninjas behind the scenes – Jacob and Josh – helped their Grandma Pipes this year with props and sets. Their favorite part? Shooting off the fire in the storm scenes right before Christ comes to America.

Stage crew has it’s advantages! Those down times when you’re not moving stuff, there is usually just enough light somewhere to read by. 😉

Jim Bob captured this moment last night:

Makes me smile. Those would be my boys!!

{Ha! I’ll work on getting it facing the right way. 😉 There it is for now though. :) }

Miss Katey

This creative chica keeps me smiling.

Here she is showing off her new hair accessory from my cousin and good friend Veralyn. :)  Katey's_Thank-you_Veralyn-2

She decided that her outfit was simply not fancy enough to go with it – so she added a skirt she made out of a napkin. 😉

Katey: We’re just talking about Josh? Josh: Just me! Meri: You have no fuzzies in your toes Mom! Andrew: I like that Josh likes to play on […]

Paisley Roots and Butterfly Wings

2015-05-23_0001

We are the happy owners of our *first* Paisley Roots​ creation!! 😀 We’re a little enamored. Meri and I both *adore* it! <3 I was definitely not the only excited one: Those colors – I swoon. Meri says the shirt is “windproof” too! 😉 I love the fabric – print and stretchy feel. It’s delightful […]

Have patience, sir

“Waiting can be hard. Children know it, and so do adults. We live in a world offering fast food, instant messaging, on-demand movies, and immediate answers to the most trivial or profound questions. We don’t like to wait.” We’ve been learning about patience in our family – like studying it. We read those words from […]

Why, Hi There.

Friend-1

Hyrum discovered a new friend this morning! It started on the bed with a peek: He then scootched over the edge – ever so carefully… to get a closer look. One of the best friends you can have in this life buddy!
