Sping Break/Sadies 11th Birthday

Sadie is always so lucky because her birthday always falls during spring break...We usually our in California, but this year we got to go to LAS Vegas to visit my sister Cara and family . We had so much fun!!! We got to be there to watch Kelsey and Kendra in a pioneer musical that was so so amazing... They live in Boulder City ,which is the first little quaint town you come to after you pass the new hoover Damn bridge... While we were there we went to down town Vegas , our favorite part were the baby tigers , M&M factory , Co Cola factory, and the crazy people dressed up.We took the kids bowling, a bounce house ( which the kids got us to race them ), bike park , Ethel's Chocolate Factory ( which had the best peanut brittle, drizzled with chocolate..Thanks Celeste for telling us to try it,we are now hooked... The kids had fun just hanging out with there cousins playing in the neighborhood.. Good times... Not to far from Cara's house is a little candy/ice cream parlor called Grandma Daisy ( which is Jarod's Grandmas name ,so we thought that was fun)... Cara and I had so much fun going Garage selling, we even found a estate sale were Cara got some really cool bright yellow lamps and chandelier, I got a pressure cooker for a $1.50 such a steal... needless to say we came back with a truck load...good times..
Sadie Lady turned 11 which was so fun having her birthday with the cousins ( Her request was red velvet cupcakes and biscuit and gravy for dinner and she got roller skates , clothes and a new purse and wallet from kelsey..Sadie is growing up so fast , she is has such a fun personality and is a sweetheart..
Cara watched the kids on the weekend and I flew to Utah to meet Jarod for our nieces wedding. What a weekend with Ryan and Stacy with no kids ... We had lots of fun going out to dinner , watching movies, going to a sweet factory, getting massages, shopping,and being with family at the wedding.. Good times
While we were gone Cara continued to spoil the kids taking them to the pawn shop( which Sage loved),She took them to a movie,and more.. Thanks to my dear sister for watching the kids.My kids cried as I drove them home because they love being at my sisters... lol

Cute Saying

Sophie was taking a bath this morning in my bath tub, I have a big decorative jar in the corner of the bath tub ledge. She took her cup she was playing with and started to fill the big glass jar, as she got close to the top she said "mom Jesus wants our cups full" so she continued to fill the jar to the top. I am truly amazed at little minds and how much they retain.

Saturday Sadie and Savana and I got to go wedding dress shopping with Shea (the bride to be) and Nancy ,Sonya and her girls and her best friend Kurt.My girls were in aah looking at all the beautiful dresses that filled the store. And they loved watching Shea try them on, the first dress she tried on ended up being the dress (to funny).Before we went I got to watch some of conference and then we got home I watched more ...and thank heaven for dvr the parts I missed I got to watch on Monday... Sunday morning the kids and I fixed a yummy breakfast, Sticky buns(also called monkey bread),Banana bars with cream cheese frosting,and little muffin ham egg bites.. what a treat !!! Savana said , this is a really good breakfast mommy, can we have this every morning? To cute...So after we were all fed then we went on to get spiritually fed...

5.Press forward
6.willing to except correction

10.submissive and grateful in heart
11.To be or not To be need this child as the child needs you
13.Christ like attribute
14.move forward with patients
15.immerse yourself in prayer and scripture study
16.lift up the hand that hang down
17.draw your family to work with you so they can learn to care
for each other
18.understanding the doctrines of Christ and his attonments will give us Peace

After conference we took a drive to San Tan Mountain ,not to far from our house and walked one of the trails called Moonlight Trail .. It was so beautiful outside ,it had a little breeze and the scenery was beautiful with the cactus( Sophie said mom look at that cactus it has 3 arms or mom look at that cactus it only has one).Some of the cactus had pretty pink flowers that were bloomed. And off coarse the kids found lots of sticks and rocks along the way. Sadie held hands with her dad most of the trail. Sage was off in the wind way ahead . And Sophie ,Savana and I were holding up the rear. When we got home we had homemade icecream with brownie cookies yum ,yum!! What a treat..... Good times ......
