Too personal?

What is your monthly or weekly budget for groceries? I think I'm spending WAY too much! (Probably because I really dislike -not using the "h" word- Walmart). If this is too personal ignore me or leave an anonymous comment :)

Also, tonight Kane said, "Hey mom, pull my finger". He said he learned it from Will :)

Bedtime movie

I don't know why I find this so funny, or blog worthy... I came home tonight to find my 7yo and 4yo boys watching Monty Python and the Holy Grail. So much for Scooby-Doo & Spongebob :)

A post... finally

I realize I haven't blogged about something "real" for more than a month! Sorry. Moving is stressful! I don't really feel like myself lately. Since I moved to Alpine and my kids go to school in Saratoga Springs, I'm rarely home. I was gone from 7am - 3pm today, uhg. So it seems it's taking me quite a while to settle in here. I thought instead of a traditional Flashback Friday, I'd give you a flashback of what I've been doing the past month.
3/20 I volunteered to go on Asher's 1st grade field trip to the Bean Museum at BYU. This was 2 days before I moved, not the best idea. Riding in the back of the school bus with a bunch of 1st graders hopped up on ice cream from the BYU Creamery, also, not a good idea.
3/23 Easter, day after we moved. My wonderful in-laws brought us dinner. Very fun day after all the hectic ones that preceded it.


3/27-3/30 Went to Monster Jam in Vegas with Heidi & her family. We had front row seats, it was SO much fun! (You can make fun, I don't care).


4/4 Bought the airplane teeter totter from Costco. Hoping it's warm enough this weekend to actually use it.


4/7 Woke up to this, ick! (Okay it's kind of pretty).


4/11 Boys playing in grandma's tub. And Kane sleeping protected by his "babies".
So there you have it. My life lately.

Flashback Friday

Halloween 1995
In the spirit of my last flashback friday, I thought I'd better post this one of me. This was when I lived in Colorado with my sister, Betsy. People used to tell me I looked like Alicia Silverstone. And since I loved Clueless (and we already had the poster above our fireplace) I thought I'd be "Cher" for our Halloween party. I don't think I look quite as good in that dress as I think I did!

Sometime in the mid/late 1980's

I thought I'd also post this one I found this past week for my Hyde cousins. This is at the 4th of July parade in Provo. Counter clockwise from grandpa... Heidi, me, Jill, Mindy (you look happy to be there) Ben, half of Julie, Linda Ann, don't know who she is, Raymond, Jeannine. Wasn't this such a fun annual tradition.

(I know I haven't posted forever, I promise I'll do another one soon!)
