I am having a Pampered Chef party on Wednesday, the 21st at 3ish! I know it is so hard to go to parties so feel free to order anything over the internet... they have lots of things that are really good and I planned it now so that if anyone needed help with Mother's Day then they could just order something fun!
A few of my favorite cheaper things are the micro-cooker, the batter bowl, and the mix'n chop.I think that this trifle bowl is darling too! You can take the bottom off and it comes with a lid! Sooo cute! It would be so fun to throw some goodies in there like hairspray, lip gloss, perfume, candy, etc. and it would be the perfect mother's day gift!
To shop online, just click here, and when it asks you for the host's name... ronda willis! Simple simple! Happy shopping!

it's so nice!!

I love it when it's warm! We came down to Lindon yesterday! It is super nice down here!
Last night we went to Heber to the college rodeo... Jade's little sister Shayley sang the national anthem and did sooooo AMAZING! So we listened and then Jade took me to "The Last Song"... soo good. I pretty much cried through the whole thing and Jade wondered what was wrong with me! :) BUT LOVED IT! Thanks hon for taking me! I know 'one' more person who LOVES being outside...

Brayker loves loves loves his grandma! He was so excited to see her!
Brayker loves riding horses...
And this is what happens when he it's time to get off of them...

Brayker loves his Uncle Shad too! They are such good buddies!

little cowboy.

I forgot to share that Brayker threw his first mega tantrum a few weeks ago... His uncle Shad led him around on a horse, and Brayker thought he was soooo big! He didn't even make a face, just somber as can be. After we took him off and made him go inside, I think he finally quit crying/screaming after about 10 minutes. :)
He loves being outside... whenver anyone opens a door, he is making a run for it!

I made this necklace last night and i'm kind of proud of it so I thought I'd show you...
and....I finished reading this last night as well.... oh my heck it is sooo good! I cried and cried, but I can't wait to see the movie! I think everyone should read this book!


I love this video. I recorded these 2 forever last night....
This is for you Grandpa Willis, we love you and hope this brightens your day today!!!

happy easter

Last weekend, Jade had a ropin in Twin Falls and I decided to go and had so much fun!... But I felt a little lonely and like I was forgetting something... It was my first night away from Brayker and his first night staying alone without me. He stayed at G&G Willis' house and had so much fun. Thanks again for watching him!!!
Then we had Easter! We had so much fun!! Brayker was more interested in the little plastic eggs than his basket, but was so cute!

Brayker got bubbles from his aunts & uncles (thanks) and was having such a blast trying to catch them. Thanks for keeping him entertained Uncle Wade!

I love my husband so much... he got me these for Easter! Can't wait for the snow to be gone.

love you.

Grandpa Weston:
I've been so blessed to have all of my grandparents for so long. 24 years I've lived to be with all of them, but my dear grandpa passed away on March 19. He had cancer, and we didn't find out until a week before he died. He was a tough man and through the end, he would never complain or ask for anything, and was always sure to thank us for everything. I miss him so much. After someone is gone, you wish you would have done more for them and I regret not spending more time with him. Before I went to Kindergarten I was at his house probably every day and then school got in the way. Growing up I did spend a lot of time with him though and I'm so grateful. He was a great grandpa and I can't wait to see him again. I feel blessed and I'm especially grateful that Brayker got to meet him. Love you grandpa.

This is a poem that Pete Cornia wrote for our family and I was asked to read it at his funeral:
"Cowboy, Come On Home"
He called himself a cowboy, went nowhere without his hat.
But to earn that simple title took more, much more than that.
Wearing fancy boots and silver belt buckles were never enough.
Because cowboys in his country were bred to be tough.

His hands were huge, calloused and wore.
But on the mouth of a colt, they were soft and sure.
Dug hay for his cattle, fed with a team and sleigh.
For much of his life, there was no other way.

He summered his cows over the Bear River Divide.
Hereford bulls and Hereford cattle wearing Diamond W on their hide.
Whit faced bawling babies trailing mama through the dust.
Over the sound of barking dogs one can hear a cowboy cuss.
When hard frost comes to the high country it was time to bring them home.
Through rough and broken country he seldom rode alone.
The roundup crew were all his friends, throughout the long hard days.
And when they headed for Bon Rico, the boss, he knew the way.

They crossed the icy Bear, late November every fall.
Their hads so cold upon the reins, they could scarcely feel at all.
His cattle, home at last, now grazing on the fields.
As fall departs, to bitter winter, finally yields.
He called himself a cowboy, sought for no higher praise.
Spent the best years of his life, on land where cattle graze.
Now a merciful God has called him "Cowboy, come on home.
There's plenty of good horses here and you'll never ride alone."
