Mermaid Costume Completed

With the help of Gretchen, I am done with the Mermaid Costume Project. I learned so much while doing this and enjoyed every minute of it. My seam ripper and I have become close friends. Most importantly Emma loves it!

Everything's Amazing and Nobody's Happy....

Our CIO/Sr.VP over IT showed us the following video at a meeting today, the first part fits us as an IT organization and the second as part of an airline (it's some comedian on Conan O'Brian):

Things going on....

My computer crashed, Steve built me a new one. I guess we should be thankful because my old one lasted 6 years. I am so thankful for a husband who is so good with computers. I am enjoying have no issues with my new one.

We got rained out of our camp out. We were super sad so we went on a date instead. It was fun to spend time together and talk & laugh.

Saturday I went to girls night with Holly, Colleen & Katy my friends. We had the best time sewing, scrapbooking and chatting. I am thankful for good friends. I was thinking we have all been friends for almost 2 years. Thanks for the fun times Ladies!

I am loving my calling in Primary I hope I get to stay here for a really long time cause I really do love it. Sunday was a little crazy but it is all worth it when a sunbeam smiles at you cause they are happy to see you! Awe, it is the best.

Steve got a promotion and a raise. We are very proud of him and so happy!

I am about half way done sewing Emma's mermaid costume. She loves mermaid & can use it for her halloween costume. Mostly I am gaining so much experience with this project. I love sewing it is so rewarding to see pieces of material come together and "create" something.

I have been do ok with my goal to read my scriptures daily.

I also have been doing ok with my workout goals, ok not great.

Spencer has been especially happy and cranky lately, he is such a toddler. He is still biding his time while his last tooth erupts.

Emma is doing great in her playschool & gymnastics. Her behavior is improving!

Out of doors

This afternoon we found a park near by. It was not the best place we have been to but it was fun. The kids enjoyed the small water falls and playground. It was beautiful outside but very windy.
