Kam's been hanging out with her dad in the mountains on the razor...

Snow in June??


So.. we've been crazy busy around here. Here's what Kelsie has been up to:

The first grade program. All of the classes sang songs and had a class theme. Kelsie's class were cows. They had a reception afterward with all of their art projects and refreshments.It was neat to see what she's been doing all year.

Ashley helped Kelsie make her first needlework project. I was totally suprised that she could do it so well.

Ashley graduated from high school and Kelsie had to show us what she looked like all dressed up.
My girls ran from the sidelines to give Ashley a big hug while she stood in line waiting for her diploma. They were so cute!

{My new vacuum!!!}

For those of you that don't know me I have a slight obsession with vacuuming and do it a lot! I love to see the lines in the carpet from a freshly vacuumed floor. Well, we used to have an awesome vacuum. An oreck. It had a bag and looked really old fashioned, but it did an awesome job. So good that my mother in law and others purchased one for themselves becuase of the outstanding job that it did. When living in a rental before while we were building this house the vacuum bag got burned very badly because the house had these weird exposed heaters on the wall and it was to close one day. Lucky the vacuum was all that was harmed. At the time the only place to get reapir parts and fix it was in Boise. So we kept the vacuum and ended up having to buy another until we could get that one fixed. I decided to move into the next century and by a Dyson. They were supposed to be so good! Big mistake......this is the worst vacuum for the price that it costs. I could have replaced my Oreck for what I paid. Sure the dyson worked great at first, but it definatly looses suction and it barely works. So, it's time for a new vacuum and I saw the Oreck prices online and they are about $400 so I decided to check ebay. To make this really long, boring story short I got a this brand new Oreck vacuum for $50 and $30 for came yesterday and it's everything it should be! I am definatly checking ebay before I buy anything again.

{The School Carnival Cake}

The Filer School Carnival was last night. Last year we made a couple of cakes for the carnival and it was a lot of fun. This year with the timing (Kyler's surgery and me working angain), I hadn't really thought about making one. Kelsie seemed pretty disappointed and so we hurried Friday when I got off of work at 3:30 and made a cake mix cake and decorated it like I had seen some cupcakes decorated on someone's blog. This was defiantly one of those times that I was greatful for all these women who share their wonderful ideas with all of us on their blogs. I didn't turn out all that bad, considering what little time we had to work with.
