Look at this girl!!!

Is this really my baby? She is more and more like a little girl every day! 
(And, yes, Mom needs to practice doing little girl hair!)

She loved it!
She even sat still while I was putting them in.

I love her goofy crooked smile!

Have a great Friday! :)

Happy Earth Day!

Have a great day and enjoy all the beautiful things the Lord has put on this earth for us!

A favorite scripture:
"Yea, all things which come of the earth, in the season thereof, are made for the benefit and the use of man, both to please the eye and to gladden the heart;  Yea, for food and for raiment, for taste and for smell, to strengthen the body and to enliven the soul.  And it pleaseth God that he hath given all these things unto man; for unto this end were they made to be used, with judgement, not to excess, neither by extortion."
Doctrine and Covenants 59:18-20

What have we been up to?

So much!!

My Etsy business is doing well.  I have had my first international sales this week.  It's been interesting working out all the details of international shipping.

I've started making YouTube videos.  I never wanted to because I am such a dork!  But it's a great way to advertise my Etsy shop.  And I have made some good friends.  It's so much fun--such a fun talented community of scrapbookers.  Check out my channel if you want a laugh.  There's only one up right now, but I have about 5 in line to be posted.  

I have joined another online community of scrapbookers called Life on the {Scrap} Beach.  It's awesome! I cannot believe how many people I've met in the couple of weeks I've been a member.  I'm doing a swap with someone right now (she sends me a box of scrapbook stuff and I send her a box of stuff).  They have virtual crops once a month which are so fun.  I stopped in on the one for April and it is so cool.  I've donated some paper bags for prizes for the  May crop. It's all things scrapbooking with people who are as passionate as I am (something I have been looking for for a long time and have not been able to find since we moved to Tooele!).

Preparing for the Book Club that I am hosting this month.  The Devil and Miss Prym.  Beautiful book!  Can't wait to talk about it with educated, kind women! I love this book group!

We spent a good part of the day last Saturday at Murray Park.  Such a gorgeous day.  We played on the playground, went for a walk along the river, ate a yummy lunch,

found a cool tree to play under, 

and to take ugly pictures of ourselves under.  Hehe!  I really love this hat by the way!

I participated in a bottle swap hosted by Yolanda (yoliebean) on YouTube.  We filled a 2 liter bottle with stuff and sent it to your partner.  It was so fun to go collect the mail and see this bottle sitting next to my mailbox.  

My partner was Michelle and she LOADED this bottle.  It was amazing how much stuff she got in there.

These papers are gorgeous!  That black and brown damask has a wallpaper like texture.  I LOVE it!

Lots of fun goodies! 

A close up of all the yumminess!

Addison took her first steps on Sunday! It was awesome!  It is just as exciting when it's baby #3 as it was for baby #1!

Sam lost a tooth on Sunday during Primary.  He was so excited.  His teacher told me after that he wanted to come right then and tell me but she convinced him to stay unto class was over.

Life is sometimes so fun.  I never thought I would be (nor did I want to be) married with 3 kids.  But I am here where God wants me to be and there is no other life I would ever want to have.  We are so blessed!  

Life is so good!
