Princess McKenna!

So last week McKenna got invited to a Princess tea party at one of her friends' houses. It was so cute. Andrea had it all set up upstairs for everyone and there were quite a few little princesses there. All the little girls were dressed up and the there were a bunch of dress up clothes for them to all change outfits if they wanted. It was super cute and McKenna had tons of fun. She loves being a princess! Just a sidenote- every night McKenna makes me make up a new story about Princess McKenna. She has all kinds of adventures. It's pretty cute.

Even Maddie found a new friend!

What Disney Character are you?

So I took this little quiz that my friend Lauren had on her blog and this was the result.

You Are Pocahantas!

Free-spirited and wise. You have a strong passionate spirit that touches and changes all who know you. The wisdom and common sense that you have is really what guides you through life. Even so, you also have a very playful side that loves adventure and excitement.

Funny story

So I just have to tell this little story real quick before I go to bed. Last night I was driving home and the girls were in the back seat. Madison was asleep and McKenna was next to her and I saw McKenna start to poke her so I said:

ME: "McKenna don't you dare wake up your sister!"

McKENNA: "Mom, it's OK! I am a trained professional!"

I don't think that I have laughed that hard in a really long time! She makes me laugh so hard. Every day is a new adventure with her.

For my girls!

A couple of weeks ago I took my Mia Maid class clay pigeon shooting at it was one of the funnest activities ever! They loved it and it was so fun watching them all try something new. All of them ended up hitting at least one clay pigeon. Anywho....they have been bugging me to put the pictures up on my blog so here they are!

I was tagged!

So I was tagged by my sister Angie and thought I would finally do this. I have been tagged before and never did it so way to go Angie for getting me to.

The Rules are....
1. The rules of the game are posted at the beginning.
2. Each player answers the questions about themselves.
3. At the end, the player tags 5 others and posts their names. Then goes to their blog and posts them a comment to let them know they've been tagged and asks them to read your blog to find out the details.

What I was doing 10 years ago....I was still in high school hanging out

5 things on my to do list today.....water all my new trees, practice a song for a stake activity tonight, laundry (always laundry), dishes (I hate dishes), run on my treadmill

If I were a billionaire I would.....hire a chef, buy a jeep, give to some people that I would really love to help without them knowing it, go to Graples, and pay everything off

3 bad habits.....too much on the internet, i love junk food, serious procrastination

5 places I've lived.....Washington, Idaho eastern and western, Ohio, Kentucky,

5 jobs I've had....Construction worker, Forest Service Road Crew, Wrangler on a dude ranch, Travel angency receptionist, Student Loan Fund of Idaho (I called people to tell them to pay their bills, people loved when I called!), and I worked in a bridal shop. Wow, I have done quite a few different things.

Fun weekend!

My parents came to town this last weekend and it was so much fun just to have them around. I miss being close to them. At least we aren't so far away that they can't come visit every once in a while. McKenna has been waiting forever to go fishing with my dad and she finally got to go with him. They didn't catch anything but she had fun just throwing her pole in the water. Thanks dad for taking her! She loved it.

Stacey wanted to see my grass so here it is. It is getting there. Travis and my dad even planted the back yard in grass while he was here so that was another perk of having the folks come. Thanks dad for working on your vacation. I am so excited about my yard! We also planted some trees after I took these pictures so that was fun too.
