Look who's cookin'

Iz had lots of fun "cooking" with me this morning :)
She even stole the apron right off me, I guess I know what my next sewing project is going to be.

Family Farm Night

I'm going to say it again.....I LOVE where we live. While at family farm night at Thanksgiving Point, in the middle of taking a thousand pictures of Iz, I just had to stop and take a shot of our beautiful sunset. It literally stopped me in my tracks. Utah sunsets, there's nothing like them. I don't miss southern California at all....ok maybe a little bit. I could use a nice sunny warm day every once in awhile during the cold days of winter. Maybe that's why we visit so much....hum?
Iz enjoyed her visit with the cows, she was much braver this trip. I'm amazed how quickly she changes from month to month.
And yes those are devil horns on her head. I pick my battles...this was not one of them.
Our little cowgirl rode the pony all on her own this time. Mom was panicking a little bit, and Dad was standing by just in case. You'd hear this little nervous laugh escape her every once in a while, it almost had me in tears it was so funny.
Next it was on to the crafts, the theme of the night was Three Blind Mice. Iz, I mean Tim and I, made a little mouse out of felt while Izzie colored a picture of the little guys.

On our way out Izzie couldn't resist one last ride on the saddle.

Latest Project

On Black Friday this year. My mom and I got a couple of new "toys". My mom purchased a new laptop, and I picked up a new DVD player for the car. We both got super deals, had to get up early to do it, but it was worth it. Neither one of us had a bag to put them in. So while my Mom was visiting us this past Christmas, we whipped a couple of them up using this pattern.
I had to add a little "bling" after my mom left. It was just calling for it. I love anything that sparkles :)
I think it turned out pretty good. Thank you for the great idea Make it and Love it!
Here's a shot of the inside, it has two pockets.

The pattern is very easy to follow, so if you have something screaming at you for a bag, get to it!

Mom's Birthday Party

We were so lucky to have my Mom come up the day after Christmas, it was only for a few days, but we'll take what we can get! I wanted to celebrate her birthday while she was here. Her birthday is on January 6th, so we weren't to early. Uncle Steven even came!
Izzie still gets excited when people sing happy birthday, I love that about her :)
Mom opening her gift, a new digital camera, she needed one. Her old Kodak was falling apart.
Does Iz know how to party? She put the box from the camera on her head and kept saying
She got grandma in the mood too ;)
Happy Birthday Mom. We hope you have a great day.
We love you

White Christmas

I know we've lived here for over three years now, but sometimes new snow in the morning takes my breath away. I'm so glad that Izzie is at an age where she can really enjoy it now. She had to try her new snow boots out on Christmas Eve, the snow was calling to her.
Later that morning we got her dressed up to go see "Santa" (the fake one) at the Mall.
Here are some shots of Christmas morning.
She loved her my little pony from Uncle Mike and Aunt Heidi.
Here she is lovin' her new Buzz doll, she's really in to "Budz" right now.
She absolutely loves her new cars, from the movie "Cars". I know she's a girl, she's just really into Buzz and Cars right now. And trains, oh boy!
She wrapped up Christmas morning with a free concert using her new microphone.
We hope your Christmas was as Merry and Bright as ours!
