Abby's Eleventh!

Happy Birthday to Abby! She has made it to the eleven year mark! We are so happy to have her in our family. She is a wonderful oldest child and big sister to all her younger siblings. She's fun to be around and she's not afraid to speak her mind. We love you Abby!

We had a little family party at Grammy's with Grandma and Grandpa. I made chicken noodle soup and brownies. She got some nail polish and perfume and a fun game, lots of cash, gum balls, and A JUSTIN BIEBER CD! She was so excited. Look at her cute little face...
Whooshhhh, eleven years, wow!
I love me some Abby!
Joe teasing her about her J.B. excitement, aahahha.

Many Marlowe's

Friends, Feet and Foreigners

Our dear friends, the Freelands, that we've known since our college days, stayed with us for a few days. It was sooo fun and great to spend time with them. They introduced our kids to geo-caching and we ate at ChuckARama and found a geo-cache and we watched the sun set on our parked party barge and we went on walks to do some geo-caching and they took our older kids out to find some more geo-caches for hours and hours. I don't know, it was crazy, crazy fun. Look it up, I guess, if you don't know what geo-caching is. Or ask my kids. Or maybe it's a big secret and I wasn't supposed to say anything about it... Anyways, I hope they come back sometime soon and bring the rest of their kids. Marlowe sure had fun playing with her new bestie, Taylor, who is also six months old.
This is me and the former almost WNBA superstar, Debbie (Dimond) Freeland!!! Haha, she has a shrine at BYU I hear. I'm going to check it out next time I'm in Provo. She is awesome and sweet and deserves a shrine in her honor!Then one of my oldest and dearest friends that I grew up with in Florida stopped by one day. Christie and I have a long history together and many fond memories of many hours spent together doing who knows what. It was fun to re-connect and meet her three darling children. She and her husband seem like very calm, kind parents. So good to see her!
One night I found these beautiful shoes. I fell in love. I left the store without them. I couldn't stop loving them. I went back and bought them. I love them.
"Hello lovlies."
I didn't love this angry, displaced, aggressive muskrat who sought refuge under our garbage can one night. We've had the strangest creatures wander into our yard. Including but not limited to: this muskrat, tarantula's(RIP Hairy Spongebob 1 & 2), a rattlesnake(RIP), three mallard ducks, three tiny yappy dogs, a swarm of flying ants(RIP), bunnies, chipmunks, scorpions, owls, bats, a cute bird living on our back porch, huge lizards and a fox.

Spring Break Trip to Provo

Me and my girls decided to take a trip up to Provo to pay Lindsey a visit! It was so fun. Needless to say we ate well and we ate a lot. It also might not surprise you to hear that we shopped a little too. It was fun to make dinner with Lindsey and Abby for Martin's Birthday! I love spending time with loved ones! And we took some pics! Like these...
