Cove Fort

For those of you who don't know this is located in Utah and is a little past Fillmore if you are driving to St George. I had never been there so on the drive home we stopped to take the tour this is a very nice and neat little part of Utah history. the Fort is an interesting structure and I love the different rooms and the antiques they are filled with. it is amazing to me that a family of thirteen lived there for so long. The views around it are amazing! Ira Hinckley did a very good job of building it and maintaining it. I think the most amazing fact that I learned is that even when the black hawk wars were going on that the fort was never attacked because the different tribes had great respect for Ira Hinckley. Here are some pictures!

Some more Pictures!!

Pictures from St. george!

St. George

So we went to St. George this weekend and it was alot of fun it was also a nice break for me from work! On Friday night when we drove down we stopped at our friend Nicole's wedding reception in hurricane. Here is the picture. Then we just relaxed that night though we did stop and eat at In-N-Out Burger. I have to say they have very tasty burgers and fries. The hotel was very nice , thank you Grandma and Grandpa Teran! On Saturday we did a little shopping and then we went and watched football and visited with Grandma and Grandpa Teran. It was very nice. We also went swimming though we forgot the camera so we have no pictures of that:( Lily loved the little kid slide they had there though and Brooklyn is definitely my water bug she even put her head under water a couple of times and just smiled! On Sunday we celebrated Grandma Teran's birthday and went out to Brunch with Grandma, Aunt Irene and Uncle Bruce, and My In - Laws. It was a very nice lunch. Afterwards we had cake and then we had to say our goodbyes! It was very sad to be leaving so quickly but it was a very nice visit. I can see why Angie misses St. George though it is very pretty and it is warm!!:)


My girls both seem to love hats! Lily always pulls hats out to wear and Brooklyn loves when her daddy puts hats on her ! here are some pictures of them in various hats!

First Kiss

Nope not talking about me I am referring to my three year olds first kiss! This week on Thursday she got her first kiss and the daycare from her friend Jackson. There were some bolder boys who were teasing the two of them about being friends and then they told Jackson to kiss Lily so he did. When Asked Lily about it she said, "yeah Mom he kissed me on my lips and it was beautiful!!" It was so funny you just had to be there!! and no I am not to worried about it she is three and does not even really understand it. Plus afterwards I asked if she was going to kiss again and she said " no when I am older " She makes me laugh!!

I want an envelope!!

So Paul related this story to me the other night as I was at work!! He said he was at his mom's house and they were preparing dinner Lily was excited for the noodles and Paul's mom was cutting up some cantaloupe. Well he said Lily was asking for noodles and then she started to say she wanted an envelope. Well she kept asking for an envelope and Paul and his mom were not sure what Lily was really asking for until she put the cantaloupe on the table and Lily pointed at it and said I want an envelope!! They were cracking up laughing I just wish I was there to see it!!

My Quirks

1) I can't stand to leave water droplets in my shower/tub so when I am done I always take a towel and wipe the water up. This quirk started only about a year ago!!

2) When I get home from work no matter how tired I am I always have to go in the kitchen and do any dishes that are in the sink. It drives my husband crazy!!

3) I can't sleep with my wedding ring on but the rest of the day it bothers me if I am not wearing it!

4) I like to lay around in my Jammie's as long as I can I don't know if that is a quirk or not!!

5) I like to be organized and lay things out in front of me that I have to do or get done. I like to make lists for organization though I do have one project for organization that I have not got done yet though. I even organize my closet by putting the same colored clothing together so I can see all my blue shirts together or brown or pink etc..

6) I like to do laundry it is one of my favorite chores. I especially like to fold the laundry!

I am going to tag Anneliesa, Dedra, Brittnee, Angie, Jill, and Candace!! have fun with it!!

Just some thoughts!!

I have to say life is pretty calm for me right now. Work is going okay and Paul's work is going well. My family in Texas are finishing clean up from Hurricane Ike but they are all healthy. My girls are doing great and seem to be learning and growing every day. Lily keeps me on my toes for sure she is very curious and she is also bossy she likes to take things she has heard adults say and try to tell me that I have to do so and so or I lose my food for the day. Needless to say we are working with her on manners and helping her to realize she can't boss people around!! She has of late decided she wants to hold Brooklyn or try to carry her around I am grateful that it started now when Brooklyn is a little bigger but I am still working with her to know that hse can't carry Brooklyn around the house. I just needed to get on and say I am happy with my life and my family! I know that is a boring for some to hear but Oh well!!
