New haircut and color and the chair I am coveting… and warming my freezing feet in the bathroom sink… and In-n-out where I lost my debit card. Sort of. Does it count as lost when it’s inside your car door because you stuck it in the window to take a [...]
Please come pick up your charity crap. Our house is getting full. XOXOXOX Wright’s Okay, I admit I am being a bit of a stinker. Truth be told, even though this project is consuming ALL my time it has been really fun. I have met some rally amazing people too. [...]
This is very important. Of all the posts I have ever forced you to read this one is at the tippie toppest. Ready? What do you turn your thermostat to at night? (Like in the winter when you live somewhere cold kind of temperature.) Mine is at 62. Sixty-two! I [...]
(Stock Photo from here.) Upon emptying the washing machine this week I discovered something small and dark moving around the bottom of the machine.If you are the sensitive kind, this would be the appropriate time to mosey along. Gonna stick it out huh? It resembled a turd. Ugh. I am [...]
The girls room at bedtime.
Dallan is giggling. This is why I asked for a temple worthiness interview with his counselor. Because it’s hard to ask your wife if she is living a good life, and not doing meth, and doesn’t have millions of secret speeding tickets, and is an overall happy nice person to [...]
The Activity Day’s girls came by to give Bishop a little “heart attack” for Valentine’s Day. He loved it, but I am pretty sure Matthew was the most excited.
Taylor: Uck! Bleck! Yuck! I hate loading the dishwasher! Me: Get over it kiddo, I do it like a million times a day. Pause. Taylor: Nuh-uh. Daaaaad does the dishes. Me: Oh. Pause. Me: That’s true I guess. Dad: Ha! Ha! Blog that one wife! And so it is.

February mild winter. Knock on wood!
As you know I took the kids to St. George last weekend. When Dallan told me he was going to get some things done while I was gone I was elated. I left him with a list of honey do’s and went on my way. The problem is when I [...]
Tired of video’s of Lily yet? Too bad! This one is my favorite so far. To watch it in HD go here.
Matthew adores his iTouch. His latest and greatest application is no less than the infamous iFart. He has found that hiding under blankets and awaiting one of his sisters can either conjure great laughter or offense by “farting” each time they pass by. A few days ago he stepped up [...]
Seriously, does anyone really say to-mah-toe? Just wanted to share my home grown tomatoes from last fall. I picked, scrubbed, blanched, and put them in the freezer for storage. So self-reliant don’t ya think? Of course we haven’t been able to eat them because apparently when you stuff ziploc bags [...]
This is my life right now. In an effort to not be dismal I will spare you the details. I know she is striving for independence. I just wish her attempts included less tantrums and breaking fewer items. Such is life. And a good life it is. Here’s a little [...]
Matthew waiting while dad tries on new suits. Did you know most stores will offer a clerical discount when purchasing a new suit? Bishop’s included! Sweeeeeeet.
Dear Grandma,Thanks for letting us visit, baby-sitting, feeding us fabulous food, and taking such good care of us. Dear Grandpa,Please buy some NyQuil that has not expired so next time I come with a cold I don’t spend half of the night hallucinating that the walls are closing in around [...]
My sister and I, and random man on the right. We just returned from an extended weekend to St. George with the kiddos. More pics to come. P.S. Why can’t I find Sisters Keeper anywhere?!?!?
Tending nephew Ethan. First and third shot by Evey, whom is becoming quite the photojournalist. I could also compose an entire picture book of her feet through the years as they are her favorite subject to photograph. And I must say Dallan is really wanting a little piece of the [...]
