a freezer full of happiness...

so. I know everyone is itchin for summer to come along... and stay awhile...

there are a few things that really get me excited for spring and summer. One of them is homemade jam. Ladies, if you haven't done it... you have to. Nothing compares to homemade jam on a yummy piece of white bread... it makes me salivate thinking about it!

A couple of weeks ago my friend Heather and I spent an afternoon slaving in the kitchen... we made strawberry and strawberry peach. ahh. yummo. It turned out really good. We made something like 60 jars... I counted, but soon after forgot.

We said we would keep track how long it took our families to go through it all.... I said it would last over 6 months... but, two weeks later we are already on our third jar.

Is there anything more exciting than a freezer full of fun stuff like that?? Now I can't wait for our 1/4 cow we just bought!!! ;) I wonder how long THAT will last.... ;)

more recipes on the beefy blog....

i just posted another yummy dinner recipe from Amanda on the beefy blog... I am excited to try it. It sounds really good. I also posted another "I can't live without"!!

"I don't know mom. I'm not Jesus."

what was I thinking??? ;)

I just added a TON of yummy YUMMY recipes to the beefy blog.... check 'em out!!

.... ok. I have news.

I should have known.

I actually, in the back of my mind, did know.

Between peeing 3 times in the middle of the night, leaving my keys in the truck RUNNING while I go into the store, tripping all over the place (more than usual), lactating. seriously. and other various signs I won't bore you with....yep.

we're having a baby!

#5 is on it's way... due circa December 10th....

ahhh. let the craziness begin. Ok. just kidding, let's just add to the chaos!! :)

Stephen and I went to Park City a few days ago and celebrated the fun news and when we got home we set all of the kids on the couch to get their surprises... (it's tradition to bring home silly gifts when we're away from the bugs) anyway, I then told them that their surprise was growing in my tummy... they all looked at me really funny and then I told them we were going to have a baby. They were all momentarily excited, then the laughter stopped and they all asked for their "real prize". dang kids. It's always about the toys.

check out this blog. It's the update of the new Draper, Utah temple...


the other day I was watching Ava and Corbin and thought it was funny how well Ry and Ava get along... they are only a couple of months apart.... how cute are they???

the other night Ry had us laughing so stinkin hard... it funny that at 15 months she really grasps making people laugh.

she does this funny thing where she puts her hands down on the floor and looks through her legs at you. If you want to talk to her she will drop down and go into her looking glass formation... it is so funny.
