Ladies Ladies Ladies!!! It's October. Why is that important? It's breast cancer awareness month. Our mom is a survivor of 7 years!!! Go mom!!! Girls get checked! If you're still too young for checks, tell your mom, aunts, and sisters to get checked!! According to the Oncologist from the Oprah Show, if you are 35 or older you need yearly exams. If you have family history of breast cancer your yearly exams should start at 30! However the research from the internet says age 40 and older for exams and start at age 35 if there is family history. Talk with your OBGYN! Earlier the better; that is what saved our mom!

its a bird, no its a plane....

What?? It's a bird?... no, it's a plane..... NO it's Romney 13,000 feet high in the air.

Here is where it all started on the ground. They took a little class before the jump and were ready to go. This big skydiving day was for Ethan. He turned the big 3-0. Ethan and Romney have been best friends since they were young pups. Here for the jump was his brother James and our bishop.

Ethan screamed the whole way down apparently

Here comes Romney ready to land

they landed safe and sound. They had a blast and would do it again in a heart beat.

Fun had by all. The tandem (the guys that are attached to you) jumpers were fantastic with the funniest little personalities. I cant wait for my turn. Next time its for the girls...

A New Rug

I know I know I have not updated in a long time, and I'm sure I have lost some readers. No excuses!!! Summer just came and went and I lost track of time. Seeing that we have not done hard core construction this summer it was time to buy a few things to attempt decorating. There is a new Pottery Barn Outlet that just got here....FANTASTIC! So we thought we'd go check it out and WALLAH we purchased a new rug. So from there, I bought some new fabrics and am going to try to make some pillows. I have no idea how to but it cant be that hard. Seriously do you know how much decorative pillows are??? I'm not willing to spend 40 bucks on a little pillow! So that was my motivation to make some.

Has anyone ever made pillows? Any tips?
