If My Blog Had Voice Mail...


It would go something like this-

Hi, you've reached my blog's voice mail. I can't blog right now as my house is messy, I have lot's of errands to run, and my kids really need my time and attention. But I will get back to blogging as soon as I have a free minute.

Feel free to leave a message, or try back another time!

Thanks & Buh-Bye!



And here's a picture for my mom and Grandma Jojo's sake!

Thanks for the cute picture of Jack with a dirty face, he is cute regardless. I know you just put a pictue of him with a dirty face on your blogg because you knew it would bug me, right.
I'm so happy you are not blogging and spending more time with the boys they will love you even more for that, just remember you are Charlie's "I love you" and no one elses.

Thanks for dinner!
Love you tons, Mom

Fabulous idea. I'm off to buy a blog answering machine.

Okay, Mandee...I've been googling your name and "blog", and TWO HOURS later I've actually read enough to feel a little in-the-know of people I don't know! Your blog is beautiful, as is your family, and I have enjoyed reading some of your random thoughts. I am now convinced, more than ever of two things: 1)reading blogs is a sin for me. TWO HOURS! 2)I am VERY dull, and SOMEONE has GOT to help me decorate my house! (Yes, that is three - I'm also generous!)I love you, and I hope you're enjoying some quiet time.

i love your blog, but i will try not to get too sad that you are not blogging right now knowing that you are playing cars or reading with the boys, and/or driving one or all of them to a: practice, game, store, friends house, etc.

Very funny ! That would be swell if I have a teletype answering machine, or a signing blog answering machine.

You are clever...blog voicemail...that is great. You will be missed until you return, but I guess I can't give you a hard time for leaving us to be a mom.

Snowball Cookies

[image]
It snowed this week. And though we don't have many family traditions, one that we started when we became a family was to make Snowball Cookies on the first snowy day of the season. And since we like cookies so much, we usually make them on other random, snowy days, too. They help ease my pain and anxiety over winter. You know-- carbs. 
There is nothing better than Snowball Cookies and hot chocolate on a snowy day.
Snowball Cookies 1 c. butter 1/2 c. confectioners sugar 2 tsp. vanilla 2 c. sifted flour 1 c. chocolate chips 1 c. chopped pecans (an option I don't use) Additional confectioners sugar (for rolling)
Beat butter and sugar until creamy. Add remaining ingredients, mix. Use a teaspoonful (I use a small ice cream scoop) of dough and roll into small ball. Bake at 375 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes. Cool slightly and roll in confectioners sugar. (I roll them twice.)

Coming & Going

(November 2012)
In November of 2012, Parker came home from serving a mission in Florida.  I can't even begin to describe the complete JOY (there is no other word for it) a parent (yes, even a "step-parent") feels when their child, or man child as was Parker's case, comes home after being away for 2 whole years.  And Parker's mission was the absolute longest mission ever.  He was gone FOR.EV.ER. 

Maddy's friend,Jedidiah Thunell, was there to capture Parker's arrival at the airport, and then made this awesome video to help us remember that day.  Incredible talent- that boy will have an Academy Award someday.

This past August, Maddy left to serve a mission in Denmark.  We knew from our experience with Parker that the curbside drop off is rushed and hurried, and I thought we were prepared this time around- experienced, seasoned missionary parents.  We pulled up to the curb, and saw one of her friends f…

I HATE Walmart

And I am never shopping there again.

Aaron and I joke every time we are in that store that it smells like a fart. But it's really not very funny, because it does smell like someone tooted. In every Walmart I've been in, I've smelled someone's stink. It makes me want to puke. But I go back because it's cheap- I am always able to get all of my groceries and then some for around $100. And I can also grab some fabric, tires, and plants for my yard while I'm grocery shopping.

Saturday night, Maddy and I made a late night dash to Walmart. I needed groceries, and she needed some material to make a pillow in one of her classes at school. The first thing I went to put in my shopping cart was french bread. No french bread. None. Anywhere. I didn't even necessarily need the fresh stuff. I would've taken the stuff in the plastic bag with the twist tie, but they didn't even have that. Second on my list- tator tots. (I've heard from a million people that a ce…
