Lets go play outside..time to come in, it is snowing!

2 What do you have to say for yourself?
Yesterday was so nice! The weather was so lovely that we all decided to stay outside most of the day(with the exception of William because he was sick) The temp. was like in the 60s or something!It was marvelous! We played on our barn roof and then we just hung around. It was fun!
Then today- it snows! That is exciting because tomorrow we don't have school!

Here we all are playing on the barn-except me and William. Me because I am taking the pictures and William because he is sick.

Ella, Ella, Ella- she was trying to walk the beam!

This is Molly- she likes to feel the wind.

This is about 1/2 of Harrison and about 3/4 of Ella. It was hard to get a good picture because they were having a race or something.

It was so warm that we didn't even all wear shoes!

Then today- It snows!!

We had to build a fire!

Look at the suburban- it is covered with snow!


Fun Monday

14 What do you have to say for yourself?
Well it is Fun Monday again!! http://mariposatells.blogspot.com/ is hosting it this week and the assignment is...

I'll only be asking TWO things -

(1) Please share to us how the NAME of your BLOG was made? I can't wait to hear interesting funny stories!

(2) Please share to us (in words or photo, though a combination of both will be a bonus!) your favorite/ most common dish!

The part of Fun Monday where I tell why I named my blog this and why...

How many of you would like to live here?

How about here? I would rather not, so I redid a room in our basement (that is were the basement part of the name comes in- the next post are where the pink comes in)This is where pink meets the basement.
This is my messy-organized room, it is pink!!
This is my awesome bed- my dad built it for me- it swings!! I got this for V-day. I like it because it is pink.

The recipe part of Fun Monday
( I got this off of my moms other blog www.shecooksforthefamily.blogspot.com)

Okay, so this is like the best cake ever!! It makes a perfect after school snack. This also make a perfect cake to take to a party or, like us, a treat to make on a Sunday afternoon. We loooooove this, even Harrison likes it!! So how you make it is..........

1 Yellow cake mix
1 stick of melted butter
1 egg
you mix all of these items together and then pat into the bottom of a greased 9 by 13 pan. This will serve as the bottom of the cake and taste very good.

1 8 ounce thing of cream cheese
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 stick melted butter
1 pound powdered sugar
Beat the cream cheese till it is smooth, then add the eggs, vanilla, and butter. Mix well. Then you add the pound of powdered sugar and mix well again. Once you have done all of this, you need to spread it over the top of th cake batter that you have already put in the 9 by 13 pan. Then bake 40-50 min. the center should be a little gooey.


Williams Birthday Pictures

1 What do you have to say for yourself?
Here is a BLT. William's favorite sandwich. We ate BLT's on William's Birthday.This is a picture of someone in my family( I am not going to say who because they don't like their picture taken and I had to talk them into letting me post this one.
This is William after Molly and Ella finished feeding him part of the pie that got stuck on the candles, I have this picture again later, and again I am sorry.
This is William blowing out candles. He took his time and tried to blow them out one at a time.
Lucy carrying the pie with candles to William.

I am a Pinky

2 What do you have to say for yourself?
I took this quiz to find out what finger, yes I said finger, I am most like.

You Are a Pinky
You are fiercely independent, and possibly downright weird.
A great communicator, you can get along with almost anyone.
You are kind and sympathetic. You support all your friends - and love them for who they are.

You get along well with: The Ring Finger

Stay away from: The Thumb

I guess that means I am small too. Yipee!! Head on over to find out what finger you are most like

Happy Belated Birthday

0 What do you have to say for yourself?

It is pretty darn crazy to have a 16 yr. old in the house!! I can't wait till he gets his drivers license!! It will be so cool to have a brother that can drive me around to anything I need...if i remember to ask nicely. Congratulations William!! ( I will post pictures from his family party later)


Fun Monday

8 What do you have to say for yourself?

Every day as I go to work, I see things around me that
make me laugh. Usually these are in the forms of signs. So take your camera with
you as you go about your business and take a picture of the things that make you
laugh along the way (but it doesn't necessarily HAVE to be a sign).

That is the assignment this week. I don't have a picture, but I thought that this was funny. On one of the highways there is a billboard that says
"alcoholism, there is hope ahead"
Then the very next billboard( you can see it from the first billboard) says
" Vine Creek (is that the name?) Winery, next left"
I thought that that was kinda funny b/c they meant the first one to be for you to stop drinking, but then it made it look like they wanted you to continue drinking, I thought that it was pretty weird.

Wiiliam's Present from G.ma

3 What do you have to say for yourself?
Tomorrow is Williams b-day, he will be 16 years old, yes that means that all of you that drive need to be very careful because he might be getting his drivers license!! For Williams birthday from g.ma and g.pa William asked for some money because he was saving up for a car, so what do they get him? well, money of course! but how much? Well they decided to put a decent chunk into his car payment.

guess how much he got!!

keep guessing!

It is possible that you got it right by now, but not likely.


Well, I guess that it is time to go to the bank.

Okay so today, Sunday, I woke up and went to church early with my dad. The reason that i went to church early with my dad is because I got to go to the Cookville Ward with the Riches!!! We have had so much fun!! These are all pictures of Lindsey Riches. She is AWESOME!!! I couldnt figure out how to upload more pictures than this, so I am going to post another post about Megan Riches.
