Abby's first film role...

Abby's cousin, Ethan, decided that he wanted to write and produce his own film at the age of 5...so he hired the best actress he knew to play the role of "Little Witch".  Abby graciously accepted the role.  The rest is history.

Nurse Abby

It wouldn't be Christmas if we didn't all get the flu! I'm the only one who hasn't lost my cookies this week so let's hope I get a Christmas miracle. Moms don't get sick days only really bad days. Poor Jeddy is feeling bad today, but good thing he has Abby to keep him warm. I should have stopped her but it was so cute. She watches out for her Daddy.

Blocks


Oh I am such a crazy lady. I had this nutty idea I'd make the girls building blocks for Christmas. I was hating myself around midnight. What's wrong with the blocks at the store. You don't have to work on those all night. No more bright ideas until after Christmas!

Awesome Christmas Treats


Oh my these are so cute and easy! I had 5 of my nephews come over and they helped me make them. I think I'm going to be the coolest aunt for at least a week. If you go to studio5KSL.com they have even more adorable ideas. It's on the 2nd page under Christmas treats. So Fun!


Santa Face Cookies For each cookie, dip one end of a Nutter Butter peanut shaped cookie almost halfway into melted white almond bark or candy coating to create the beard. Immediately sprinkle dipped end with shredded coconut and press gently into almond bark. Let set. Dip other end of cookie approximately ¼ of the way up in the white almond bark to create part of the hat and let set. Dip this hat end again into melted red candy melts leaving a small border of the white showing so it creates a red hat with white trim. Immediately press a miniature marshmallow to the right side of the cookie at the edge of the red to create the look of a ball at the end of the hat. Attach two mini chocolate chips with melted almond bark to middle of cookie to create eyes. Attach a small red hot cinnamon candy below eyes to form nose. (Tips: Roll mini marshmallow slightly to make more round and pliable before attaching to cookie. Also - if you do not want to use coconut on the beard white sprinkles can be used or simpy use a knife to swirl more almond bark on to make a textured and fluffy look.)


Frosty the Snowman Treats (Recipe adapted from http://www.familyfun.com/) Use white or clear piping gel to attach a powdered sugar donut hole to a miniature powdered sugar donut. Unwrap a thin mint candy (such as a miniature York peppermint pattie) and attach to donut hole to become hat brim. Unwrap a miniature peanut butter cup candy or Rolo type candy and attach to top of mint to become the top of hat. Use icing to create a holly leaf and berries on hat brim if desired. Use black piping gel (or other colors) to add eyes, a mouth and buttons to the snowman. To make nose, slice a triangle shaped piece of orange gumdrop, roll slightly to shape and press in granulated sugar to cover any sticky side. Make a hole in donut hole face with a small wood skewer and insert nose. Serve on a plate sprinkled with shredded coconut or on white cotton candy sprinkled with edible glitter to resemble snow.

Date Night

Lately Jeddy and I have been try to get a little more creative with our date nights. Dinner and a Movie is just getting lame, and it doesn't help that the movies aren't that cool. So last weekend I let Jeddy talk me into hiking up Camel back. I asked before we went if it was a hard hike and he said no it'll be fine. Um yeah LIAR. First of all most people that have known me for 2 minutes could guess I'm not a hiker so what was he thinking. It was not my idea fun. By the time we got to the top it dark because for some reason he thought I would just run up it. It was so dark we got lost coming down. I was a total nut because he wanted me to hike some more and we were a hour late to pick up the girls. For me it was the worst night ever, but for Jeddy it was the coolest thing we ever done. Silly boy

Cabin

Last weekend we went to Grandma Jeans cabin and had a blast! Milly was happy because she could get dirty and no one was bugging her with baths.


I wouldn't mess with Abby when she's fishing.


This was our cute picnic we had at the lake. Jeddy busted out the tent so Milly had a place to play. Too bad we couldn't get her to stay in it. That silly girl!



This was me and Milly favorite part chillen on the swing.


This was Mill Mills kind of place.


How cute is this. The best part is they are playing with worms. I think that's why Abby loves fishing so much.

Abby and Jeddy are so cute together! She do anything with her Dad.

Beach Bums

For the last 2 weeks we have been kickn it at the beach. The first week Bertha and Benton came and got fried! They are such a cute couple they even got cankles together. The Shaws also came up that week. We had so much fun. Abby's favorite was picking strawberries. She ate more than she picked.
Jeddy was supposed to go with us, but the hotel he was working on wasn't done. I was super bummed! Jeff and Nina called him and talked him into coming that weekend to surprise me and the girls. Those sneaky guys! We were so happy to see him!
My brother in law came up with his boys and we went to Sea World!
After he left my Mom came up with my sister Hillary and we went to Disneyland. We had a blast! I tortured Abby by making her go on Splash Mountain!
She loved the parade!
Here are a few beach pictures. We had a lot of days at the beach with a lot of different people! It was a good two weeks!
Abby didn't like the water!
I know it's adorable!
Aunt Hillary is so much fun.
Milly loved the beach, but I couldn't get her to stop eating the sand.

Cute Cute

I just love these guys! Jeddy survived Mother's Day with a happy wife! I always pull you don't need to get me anything, but when that day comes around I'm always disappointed. So this year he busted out a very thoughtful gift. A cupcake cake pan! Watch out for the next birthday party I'm going to make a killer cake.

I heart Edward

This is my embarrassing secret I am in love with the twilight series. I think it's my guilty pleasure because I really do have a crush on Edward. Can I please have a gorgeous Vampire fall in love with me or at least someone bite Jeddy. I feel bad for Jeddy because I am a crazy lady when a new book comes out. First of all I stay up all night reading, and then Jeddy is constantly hearing why can't you be more like Edward. He stays up all night and just watches Bella sleep. Oh my gosh am I really this dorky. Anyways a new book is coming out,The Host, but it's a trick it doesn't have anything to do with Vampires. Its a whole new thing. It should be interesting, maybe I'll see you at Barns and Noble May 6th. Can I get a book club?

More killer recipes!

This is a hard one to give up because it is so good and easy. It's the only thing Jeddy will not drench with Tapatio. Without tapatio Jeddy would have not survived my horrible cooking.

Avocado Salsa

1 can of Drained Black beans
1 can of shoe pegged corn (you can use any corn)
4 Roma tomatoes cut up
3 Avocados cut up
Green onions
1/2 cup cilantro (Rachael Ray say most of the flavor is in the stems try it it's true)
2 garlic cloves
1 tsp of salt
1/4 cup of Italian dressing

To tell you the truth I never measure a little of that some of this is my favorite way. Try it out you will love it and everyone will think you have mad skills!

Granny Annie



I was feeling a little crazy and wanted to sew my girls Easter dresses. My Mom used to always make our dresses as little girls. So yes, I'm turning into my Mom. It blows me away to. Anyways they turned out super cute. The best part about them is they're reversible. Everyone told me I had to make one for me, but the madness has to stop somewhere.
I had some left over material so I made these too! I know this pushes me over the top in crazy, but I am going to be the cutes Grandma ever.
