My Valentine

Today is not only Valentines day but it has also been 10 years since I meet my wonderful husband. Cupids arrow hit us on February 14, 1999, and here is the story. My brother Jason had a girl friend who was friends with Miltons sister Nadell. So I wanted to meet Jason's girl friend and he insisted that I had to go on a double date with him in order to meet her so I told him "I will not go stag on a double date" and he said " I'll find you a date. Nadell has a brother comming home from a mission in a few weeks we will set it up". So I agreed. The date was set for February 15 but I insisted that I go to his homecomming just to make sure he wasnt to weird and if he was I would have enough time to back out before the date. As I watched him give his talk I had a very strong impression that he would someday be my husband.He was impressive, and I had the pleasure of meeting him after sacrament meeting. And the rest is history.

So for this Valentines and anniversity Milton had 18 long stem red roses delivered to me. It made my day. He is a fantastic husband and I love him deeply.

Happy Valentines to all you love birds

The First Five

First Five

The first five...
The first people to leave a comment on this blog will receive something made by me.
However there are some limitations
1. I make no guarantee that you will like what I make. (just remember I have good taste :)
2. What I create will be just for you.
3. It will be done this year. (might take a while)
4. You have not clue what it is going to be, poetry, shoes, bags or a little invention of my own. I may bake something and mail it you . Who knows? Not you that's for sure!
5. I reserve the right to do something extremely strange. It may blow your mind!
Here the catch, if you choose to do this. You must post this on your blog and be ready to make something for five people too. This will be fun! When you receive the fabulous item I make you, you must post a picture of it on your blog.

I know, I know, I know....3 new blogs in less then 24 hours but hey I have had some good blogging events. haha. So we woke up to snow this morning. You can only imagine the excitement of my 4 sweet boys when they realized the ground was covered in white. We have had quite a bit of snow this season but this was different. This snow packed wonderfully so we HAD to make a snowman. Unfortunately Jared and Seth had to be in school while we created our new friend. It was now or never because the snow will probably be gone before school is out. Coy and Trevor had fun making the snow man. I told them that they better kiss him goodbye because he wil not be here for long.

Team Crowther

So my boys were jealous that I blogged earlier about Lydia and not about them. So I took pictures of them in the shirts that grandma Crowther made them. This morning Jared and Seth insisted that since they were wearing there shirts to school today that their brothers and sister should also wear their shirts also. They always look so cute in them.


About 2 months ago I was visiting teaching an 82 yr old woman who asked " Is your little girl crawling yet" to which I replied "No not yet but she is getting really close." To which the woman said " well that is to bad, when she does start to crawl spank her butt, sit her back down and say NO!" I laugh just thinking about that because anyone who has ever had a child knows the craziness we endure during the crawling phase. Get the baby up in the morning. Scour the the floor with microscopic vision for anything on the floor, such as paper, strings, dirt, food, books, basically anything that could do harm to your sweet adorable child or anything that your sweet adorable child could do harm to. It is a crazy vicious cycle of picking up constantly, vacuuming 2 maybe 3 times a day sweeping at least 4 times a day and then mopping, all this and then the sound of Bump, Thud, WAAAAAA as you realize your little one tried to conquer the stairs and failed in their attempt. Then just when you get used to this routine you realize your sweet baby is pulling herself up onto anything she can find. This has been my life for the past few weeks but hey my floors are clean!!!
This is Lydia trying to crawl away from me and the camera. It was taken after church.

She stood up all by herself Just holding on to his fingers. She is pretty proud of herself so was her daddy!
