My Baby Is 3 Today!!!

Lyric Ella Nelson 
3 years ago a blessing was been given to me and many others.
I have a friend who always says " enjoy them while you can, someday they wont be little anymore) and now that Lyric has turned 3 I wonder where the time has gone and question, Did I really enjoy every moment I had? Answer: No.... I was aweful with pictures, where was the camera to catch the first laugh, rolling over, first tooth, first tear, crawling, walking and first time she said Meme. ( For some reason she called me that instead of mama)
However the last year or so I have been a little better at the pictures and will share some with you.

I will miss my friend!! :(

Breeann Demie Hanson is one of those life long FRIENDS!! I have know Breeann since I moved from West Valley to Riverton and started my 6th grade year at Rose Creek Elementary. We have had our up and downs and times when we fell apart but it seems that no matter how long I have been apart from her we can pick up right where we left off and have a blast together.
Lately BreeAnn has put some old pictures of us and other friends of ours on Facebook and I have had a good time going back and remembering the good old days when things were simple and layed back. When we could go to the Mall and rome the stores without anyone telling us, "aren't to old to be at the Mall?" or when we could have sleepovers and paint or toe nails or even make a music video of us singing Brittney Spears songs or Having Brittney Chugg be Jenny Jones while she interviews us  being crazy out of control teens. Or being able to just go to Church and be able to visit during sunday school when we should be listening to the lesson.
I am very sad to say that Bree told me a couple months ago that she was going to be moving to either North Carolina or Texas, however either one of those would make me sad. It just isn't Utah. But She does need to be with her Hubby Blake so I don't blame her. And plus she said she wouldn't be leaving till the end of July.... it's now July 14 and I'm not happy that she leaves in a week. I keep thinking I need to get with her and plan something for us to do but things would come up. And now it's here, time for her to start a new adventure to Texas. :(  
The only positive thing I can think of is that hopefully I can find a way to Texas and visit her while she is gone. And hopefully she wont be gone as long as she says.

Survivor Payson 4th of July

Every year my family plans a camping trip for the 4th of July, this year we went to Payson Lakes. And one other thing I should mention is that my family loves the TV series Survivor. So up camping all thirty of us was divided into two teams to compete against each other to play survivor. Me, Alisha, and Janiece was the apart of the American Bandanas and the other team was Cameo. But everyone also had fishing licenses this year so it was hard to get everyone together at once to do the challenges. So we only did a couple and hopefully Survivor will continue next weekend up camping. ( But I think our team won!!)

Brady and Alyssa were also part of our team ( Brady is my nephew and Alyssa his girlfriend)

This Camping trip was also fun because It was the first time Lyric could really enjoy it now that she is older and understands what we are doing. She had a blast with all her cousins.

We had a great time and love spending a weekend with family!

Fathers Day 2011

Been busy the last couple weeks so I am late at saying...HAPPY FATHERS day out there to all those wonderful dads... especially to the two that matter most to me.

My Dad
My dad is an awesome Dad, Grandpa, and Husband. He is always worrying about his family and making sure he does what he can for us. He has a ruff side... people who don't know him probably don't like him, but once you get to knowing him you can help but like him. I would say his favorite hobble is Horses, he has always loved them and has had at least one since I can remember. He is always making us laugh, mostly cause he is always repeating the same joke or does things that is so predictable. Honestly I am surprised that I was able to get this picture of him. (So not him) He is also the most honest person I know and I think everyone would agree.

My Dad has now retired this last Spring and I think is loving every minute of it. He has worked for Rocky Mountain Power. My family and I decided that it would be fun to have a retirement party for him... of course he acted all embarrassed when we wrote on his truck HONK THIS OLD MAN RETIRES TODAY, and when we hung a sign on the over pass on the way to work that read HAPPY RETIREMENT GARY..... and of course he didn't notice till his friend at work pointed it out, so he drove by. But I know he really enjoyed every minute of it even when he walk into the house with all 6 of his kids, 5 sons & daughter in laws and wife and all 15 grandchildren singing FOR HE'S A JOLLY GOOD FELLOW!! 

So if your reading this I think you would agree that I do have a wonderful Dad!

Lyric's Dad

Conner is an awesome dad to Lyric and I'm glad that he is that father of my little girl Lyric. He is always  teasing her, (which she loves) and always letting her follow him around the house whether it's a project he is doing inside the house or out. Conner also spoils not only Lyric but me as well. I am most grateful for the hard worker that he is and that he is willing to let me stay home and take care of Lyric. 

I tired thinking of something Lyric could do for Conner that so could help with and considering that I'm not creative we came up with this....

It said, Dad- I dropped the whatchamacallit with my Butterfingers so I wondered the best way of saying sorry.... Dad your a Big Hunk and are always twix ting me and making me snicker, thats why I love you to pieces!!! And because of pay day!
