Our new house??

Take a look at the house Mickayla and I are hoping (really hard) to rent.
Isn't it adorable!!  I love it.  Keep your fingers crossed that we are able to rent it.
Can't you just see it with some hanging pots, a couple of rose bushes, some 4 o'clocks, and the lawn mowed. Oh and don't forget the garden Gnome.

"Jasmine's House"

One of the Krishna temples is located where Brittany lives in Utah.  Elizabeth (grandchild # 2) has always wanted to go to "Jasmine's" house, so while visiting with new baby we decided to take a trip to Jasmine's house.

 We think it is beautiful!

We took the tour of the temple and learned alot about Krishna Consciousness.  Our tour guides were awesome.  It was kinda funny though we were given a tour of the Krishna temple by members of the LDS faith.  hmmm?

Calvin, Elizabeth & Mickayla at the alter.

We got to play and chat/sing Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna.............
We ate lunch and had traditional Indian food.  Some was really good and some was a little too spicy for my tummy.  Elizabeth thought that the mandarin oranges and a cookie were a safe bet.  Calvin ventured out more and added cheese and spaghetti to his plate.  I tried a little of everything.  After lunch we went  to see the menagerie outside.

 "Is your Mama a llama?" said my daughter Mickayla
Calvin wasn't so sure about the llamas eating out of his hand.  Elizabeth said "no way".
We saw white peacocks (not albino), regular color peacocks,  & lots of llamas.  They also had a beautiful
pond with lots of coy that we could feed.

I think everyone had a good time except Elizabeth WAS a little disappointed 
that we never did see Jasmine. Darn. Maybe next time.

PROM 2011

WOW 2 teenage girls from the same household going to prom! Umm I think that spells disaster.
We did finally make it through not sure if the girls are speaking to each other again but here are the results.
By the way Mickayla made Tasha's dress.  The girls looked fabulous and had the BEST dates.

Meet Brandt Grove. Tasha's wonderful date
Meet Mitchell Fadely.  Mickayla's dandy date
Mitchell's mom was nice enough to make a tie that matched KJ's dress.
Mickayla was able to pick her dress up in Utah for the whopping price of $25.00

Please make sure you check out Tasha's pride and joy..
the SHOES!

This was my pet peeve of the event.  This little item (notice the size please)
cost $4.00 less than the SHOES!  grrrrr was not happy.
All in all it was a fabulous evening and both girls each spent less than $ 100.00 on:
the tickets
the boutonniere 
the dress
the shoes
the jewelry
and the hair.
Dinner was free.  I am so proud of them for being so frugal.

Random Silliness

I have NO idea who this devil child belongs to.

 These guys are doing the famous "Erik" grin.  Erik started this years ago and it stuck.
