One Proud Mama!

Chazz was picked for student of the month in his class for November! They held a small program for the student of the months today and presented them with a certificate and explination of the character trait they exeplified, a certificate for free cookie dough from papa murphys and 2 free kids meals at applebees and famous daves! Here is what Chazz's teacher had to say: It gives me a great deal of pleasure to present Chazz Hinckley as a model of integrity. On many occasions, I have noticed Chazz helping out other students without being asked. When a job needs to be done, he is the first to volunteer and to lend a helping hand. He follows the class and school rules and does not need to be reminded to make the right choices. He never tries to shortcut on his work. It is always finished and done with care. I really enjoy having Chazz in my class and appreciate the great example that he sets. Keep up the good work!
I am so proud of how he behaves at school. He is turning into such a sweet little boy who cares deeply about doing well at the things he does. Way to go buddy!

Chazz was trying to pop-a-wheely and screwed the whole thing up! But he did get some cool road rash and stiches in his eyebrow. So what is cooler, stiches or pop-a-wheelys????

Nebraska Trip day 4

Omaha Henry Dorley Zoo how I do love you! If you are ever even thinking about visiting Omaha NE this is hands down one of the stops you MUST make. This zoo is not only beautiful but is a whole day ADVENTURE! From indoor exhibits that take you to a jungle or a desert in the night or even an adventure to the artic and under the see. There is simply nothing that I have ever seen that compairs! My sister Holly was the photographer at the Zoo so I have to get some pitures from her but I did snap this shot of me and one of my best friend from Elementary school through High School Danah!! What a wonderful suprise to see her there. I will have to scan in a piture I found of her and I as grade schoolers at the petting zoo there!!!

Nebraska Trip day 3

I dont have any pictures of this day yet but we got to hang out with my whole family. Yes the whole family. My Dad, Sara and Kathryn and Ashley drove from Waterloo IA to hang out with us. My Dad really Never gets to see my whole family because we live so far away but it was such a great time and I am glad he made the trip. We had a big BBQ at my sister Heidi's and her friend Joe made us some very yummy ribs. We enjoyed a NE firework spactacular which included all of the illegal Utah fireworks!!!! (meaning they were all in the sky, here they have to be on the ground or they are illegal(LAME)) Very fun and very enjoyable.

Nebraska Trip!

Well its been a month since my trip and I finnaly have a free late moment to blog about it. Zack decided to grace us with his presence and drive 14 hours with us to visit my side of the family. We started off on July 2nd and drove to Cheyenne Wy. We finnished the 7 hour leg of the trip the next day and drove to my uncles farm in weston Ne. On the way there Zack made us stop the car and take a picture next to the corn. We then had a delicious 3rd of July BBQ and the boys had a lot of fun doing fire works. Zyan was so happy to see their horses. Then we finnished the hour drive from weston to Omaha that night.

Bathroom Update.

Ever since we re tiled our bathrooms upstairs and painted the vanitys i have wanted to frame our mirrors. We found a lady in our neighborhood who does just that! Her name is Michelle and she owns Reflected Designs. She came to our home 2 weeks ago and I picked out the frames and placed our order. Today she came and hung the frames on the mirrors! I have a totally new look in my bathrooms and couldn't be happier!

I was a grocery guru this week! I got all of this for $69.91. I have been clipping coupons for olny the items I think I will use and then waiting for them to be on sale in the adds. So I totally scored this week with 8 boxes of cereal @ .97, 7 boxes of eggo waffles @ .82 (for our breakfasts on Wacky Waffle Wednesday!) 5 keebler cookie packs @.83, 2 ben and jerrys pints @2.00, 2 loafs of granny bread, 2 packs of strawberries, banannas, potatoes, 3lbs of sausage, 2 lbs of bacon, 1 gal of o.j. 1 gal apple juice, 2 gal of milk, bagels, lettuce, tortillas, tomatos! Obviously a lot of this will be stored and saved for later but I was just so excited about my steals I had to share!!! I scour the adds on wednesday night write down the sales to price match at walmart and then find coupons if I have any then I shop for the sales on Thursday. This has really helped me build up my food storage and helps me save a lot of $$$!

What to blog about?

As you can tell, I have neglected my blog horribly!! I have not one excuse but that life gets busy and .......fill in the blanks. I love looking at other peoples blogs, and have noticed a trend in my family, they post about their families and their hobbies/passions. Well I decided to jump on the bandwagon and post about my love for card making.

Last month I made a trip to the scrapbook expo with $50.00 and came home with a great bunch of papers and extra cute do-dads and $7.00, if you can believe that!! Papers + Heather = no sleep!!! I kept dreaming of the combos that I could create and could not wait to cut some of that paper!!!!! So here is a picture of my loot and my first creation with my finds!!
