My First "I" Post

I copied this idea from a great friend/neighbor since I can’t come up with any good ideas of my own
I can’t believe I haven’t posted anything since New Years
I am a slacker…I have no good excuse
I haven’t taken any pictures either
I have the best husband in the world
I appreciate how he takes such good care of our family
I believe that marrying him was the smartest thing I ever did
I have the most beautiful girl in the whole world
I love staying home with Claire each day
I used to put all the pictures she colors on the fridge…until she started coloring at least 10 pictures a day
I have come to accept the fact that no matter how hard I try to put all crayons, pens, and markers away, Claire seems to find the ones I missed.
I think she must have a secret stash
I have recently come to appreciate Mr. Clean Magic Erasers :)
I am laughing all day long because of the things she does
I have never really been into sewing but at the moment I really love it
I am currently making the bedspread for Claire’s new bed
I am ready for winter to be over…but not quite ready for spring to begin
I took a book from the ward book exchange table today without leaving a book in its place
I kinda felt guilty for taking the book so I read the entire thing today (346 pages) so I can return it ASAP.
I was only able to do it because Claire wasn’t feeling good and slept a lot today
I love my little girl with my whole heart and love how she copies everything I say
I am ready for another addition to our family
I am absolutely loving my calling in the YW’s program
I look forward to our activities each week
I have less than two weeks to find a dress for my brothers wedding
I need to go to bed instead of looking for a dress online
I enjoy reading other blogs so leave a comment so I can find yours…if I haven’t already
I hope you all have a great day!!!

New Years Eve

On New Years Eve we went bowling with my dad, Holly, and brothers and sister. It was alot of fun...even though we didn't do very well. Towards the end I let Claire bowl for me and she really liked it....but then decided she wanted the ball back and went running after it. Of course I took my camera, and of course I forgot the memory card. This is totally typical of me. Why is it that I can stay awake til midnight any other day...but on New Years Eve I am sound asleep around 10:00 every year. So these pics were taken while pigging out on pizza and cheesecake....long before the stroke of midnight.
