So Tyson had the camera with him at school for the last little while and I just got it back. So I have a few random pics to post. They don't really have much to do with each other but Jason wanted a new post so here goes....

So Nov. 8 was my wards Super Saturday and we had a craft day. Mom and Makell came with me and we had a great time. These are the crafts that I did...with lots and lots of help from my mom and Makell. Basically they did the whole snowman for me, that turkey took forever.

This one was the easiest: just paint, sand and stick on the stickers.

Again mom and Makell did the snowman, the turkey was really hard but totally worth it.

These next two pics show what Tyson and I are usually doing on a Sunday afternoon.

Tyson is usually studying really hard. I really am proud of Him. He has a very hard semester but he is doing so well and even when things seem tough and never ending he sticks it out. I love him with all of my heart and really appericiate all of his hard work with school.

This is a common activity for me because Tyson and I usually crave sweets on Sunday. This particular day was the day before Makell's b-day. Makell requested sugar cookies with the number 16 on them. So I baked and decorated all day on Sunday. I ended up with about 5 dozen cookies, half pink with green writing and half green with pink writing. And in explantion of the pop can rolling pin....I don't have a real one. During Barbara's move mom offered to save me her rolling pin but I said "No, I don't really make anything that I would need a rolling pin for." Well Makell's birthday proved me wrong. Needless to say the pop can worked great!

The final product after hours of fun!

This is a very random, awful picture of me at my mom's house during her birthday party. I was playing the piano and Tyson surprised me with the camera.

Josh tells me that I am now truly trailer trash because the washer and dryer I have are worth more than my "house". I bet the value is actually pretty close and since the washer and dryer are almost 6 months old I would guess that they have depreciated almost enough that our "house" might be worth more. Brendie's great aunt Barbara sold her house and moved to Idaho falls and she asked us if we could use her washer and dryer. We said that would be wonderful cause the old washer leaked and the dryer was melting brendie's stuff. We are so thankful that Barbara decided to let us have the washer and dryer. It was no easy task to move the washer and dryer down the hall way of our tiny little house but Josh was the mastermind behind the move so it all worked out. As you can see the washer and dryer dont really fit the rest of the house(it looks like I stole them from some rich people), in fact they dont really even fit in the space we have but they are hooked up and they work. Thanks again Barbara!
