Facebook is my friend?

It should be because it takes all the time away from my blog! I thought I should stop neglecting my darling little blog and update it for once!!!

The first week of July was pretty eventful. Gabe was baptized on the fourth of July (pretty lucky day!) and we had an Edwards Family reunion that week after.

Here is Gabe before his baptism

He got baptized up in Mendon Utah ( near Logan) with his cousin. It was easier to get all the family up there together that way! It was a great day.

Here is a pic of my side of the family. My parents, and my sis and her family too. (We are missing Kelsey because she was practicing for the Stadium of Fire!) I'm not sure if there is a lens wide enough to capture all of Lance's family together.... ;)

After that we spent the day at Lance's brother's house and had a cook-out and fireworks that night. It was a long day but the kids went swimming and caught up with all the cousins. We went to the car show parade in downtown Logan later that evening(see photo above). It stank like cars but the kids enjoyed it......

The next few days were spent catching up with Lance's side of the family. By the time we got to his brother's wedding on Wednesday, I could feel the sickness starting. You know that feeling when your back starts to ache and your skin is sensitive? Yeah, that. Ohhhhhhhh joy.

See this picture? FEVER. ME. Not feeling too well.

By the time we got in the car to make the hour drive back to Kaysville, I was shaking and shivering and miserable! What is with that? Mom's can't be miserable! I have things to do! Food to make! Rooms to clean! Errands to run! A certain Utah Jazz player to follow around a Layton golf course!!!! Jeesh! Needless to say I am still NOT BETTER. I finally got a prescription for a sinus infection (of course!). So I am seeing the light at the end of the tunnel now. Hopefully.........

So here are some comical photos from the wedding where I was really wanting to put on some pj's and go to sleep. But instead, I snapped random pics of my kids to pass the time.

This is Olivia and her little sweet cousin from Texas. FULL of personality, those two.

Gabe was clearly tired of me taking pictures at this point.

Madelyn is always beautiful. Even while re-enacting scenes from Avatar: The Last Airbender.

Savannah and her favorite cousin. Partners in crime.

Couldn't resist posting this one. I felt the way she looks in this pic. I know, Olivia, I know.

A little more sane than usual

That's right. A post about groceries. You may have seen them on other people's blogs. And now you're seeing it on mine.

After going to a coupon class a month and a half ago, I've been storing up coupons and have finally gotten around to putting the system to work for me!!!! I purchased 6 boxes of cereal, 2 boxes of toaster strudel and a gallon of milk for $10.36(at Albertson's). That's right folks! I saved over $23.00.

That's cheaper than Wal-Mart could ever be.

It's just the beginning (so I hear) of the savings when you use this method.
I will never shop the same way again!
Who's with me?!

Oquirrh Mountain Charter School

There have been a few people asking about the new charter school that is opening up here in the Fall.

So I decided to post the link about it for those who are interested! My kids are enrolled there for this Fall. All but Madelyn, she's too old! I am really excited about it!

If the link isn't working, just copy and paste...hope that will do!

Vocabulary, Schmocabulary......

Everyday when the kids get home from school, I check their backpacks to see for homework assignments, and any graded papers. I pulled this one out of Gabe's backup a couple days ago.

So....... yeah. Good thing we can't have any more kids, huh?
