We have never been very good at doing family night. Usually Amon and I like to get into a fight right before, Graham likes to make messes and the only time the babies cry is right before we try to have fhe. So I needed an easy go to plan, something Graham loooves and something we can do as a family.
Brownies are the answer.
WE ARE MOVING THIS WEEKEND!!!! If you like to clean, paint, watch kids, pack....CALL ME!
Sunday was Chase's farewell and Monday was my mom's parents's 50 anniversary. We have been surrounded by family and it has been so great. My family is huge. Both my parents come from families of 10 kids and most of those kids have kids. And we are all pretty close or at least were close growing up. But these last couple of days made me realize how much I want my kids to be around our family. Of course our family isn't perfect and kinda crazy but we love each other. And how great for kids to know they are loved by so many people.
And now that I am an adult I love, love my mom and aunts! I feel like they are my sisters. How cool that I can learn from them and really understand lots of things that they went through. Like one of my aunts I basically grew up at here house. We were over there all the time and she was so fun! And always treated us like one of her own. That is a sacrifice! She had 4 of her own crazy kids running around and then to take me, or Ash or Chase and make us feel right at home is no small thing. She has gone through the refiners fire in the last few years. She amazes me.
I have been hanging out with some of my other aunts, who have kids the same age as my kids and it's so fun to be able to talk and become better friends!
I don't know why I didn't take pictures at Chase's farewell so all these pictures are from the party for my grandparents.
I'm doing some engagement pictures in a few weeks. I went to Globe yesterday and found the perfect spots. I'm really excited. While we were there we went to some antique shops and got Mexican food, of courses.
Ash did my nails tonight with a really cool gel polish. It lasts 3 weeks! No chipping, nothing. I'm in love. It drives me crazy spending an hour doing my nails just to have it chip off the next day. Anyways, she charges $20 and has come cool colors and can to french manicures (white tips). I think I'll try that next time.
