Remembering September 11th

It has been 7 years since the attack on the Twin Towers September 11, 2001. I remember exactly where I was and what I was doing when I found out that a plane had hit the 1st tower. I had just sat down to turn my computer on at work when another co-worker came in and told us one of the buildings had been hit by an airplane. Those of us that were working were all in disbelief. We all thought to ourselves how could a plane hit the building? We thought maybe a small plane that had crashed. Then a short time later after turning on the radio and trying to access the internet we found out the 2nd tower had been hit as well. After a few hours at work, they let us go home. I remember that Jen was supposed to fly to New York the very next day. I was living with my dad at the time of the attack. His home is located about 15 or so miles South of the Salt Lake City airport so there were always planes flying right over the house. I remember going home that night and sitting on the front porch and there was a creepy silence, no airplanes in the sky they had all been grounded. It was at that point I really realized what had happened on that day!

Please remember the victims and their families on this day!
Never forget!

Bad Week!!

Well can you say bad week! It's either that or I am having one heck of a pitty party this week. Lets see, both my dryer and vacuum broke on Sunday and the repair guy for the dryer can't come until Friday of this week. I hope it won't cost too much to fix my dryer. When I get paid again, I'll go by a new vacuum but until then, I'll just have to borrow my moms SUCK! My laptop keeps shutting itself down and I have no idea why. I really think I need a new one maybe I'll get lucky and Santa will bring me one for Christmas LOL.... It wouldn't be such a big deal if I only needed to use it occasionally but I need it for school. Oh and for those of you who don't know, I work for the State of Utah which has recently mandated us working 4 10's and it's kicking my butt this week. It's really nice to have a 3 day weekend but so hard to work the 10 hour days sometimes. I guess the hours really don't bother me, what bothers me is being away from Ava from 6:30am to 6:00pm. So by the time I get home from work, I only get to see her for maybe 2 or 3 hours before she goes to bed. I'm really struggling with the hours this week because it prevented one of my very good friends from coming back to work off of maternity leave. So I guess work just really sucks this week.

I'm sorry that I posted a "pitty" post but just needed somewhere to type my frustrations!

Halloween Tutu Costumes...

So I've said in the past that I don't have the "crafty" gene. Well with the help of my sister, I do have it a little bit. Anyway, my sister and I make Halloween tutu costumes. We make flower fairies, pumpkins, bumble bees, cats, witches, little devils, etc. So, if anyone is interest, email me The cost is $35.00 without a leotard which comes with the very full tutu made with over 100 yards of tulle with the colors of your choice and head piece, wings, etc. If you do want the leotard, there would be an additional cost but only what the leotard actually costs us to buy. We can ship anywhere in the United States via USPS flat rate box $12.95. We can make sizes that go from baby sizes to little girls sizes of a 6. Please email and let me know if you're interested. The costume that Ava is wearing is hers from last year and the ones we make are similar to this one. Thanks everyone!!!

Rub a dub "puppy"!

We ended up going camping for Labor Day weekend. When you get home from camping EVERYTHING needs to be washed and scrubbed including the dogs. I was bathing the dogs when we got home and usually bath them after Ava goes to bed because she thinks that she needs to bath with them. Needeless to say she got in the tub before I was done so here is Ava and Jazz in the tub, poor Jazz LOL! I was just so excited when she got in NOT! However, it was still pretty cute. Hope everyone had a good holiday weekend. Loves to all....
