August also brings us to my favorite time of year!!! I love school supply season. I love to get 10 cent notebooks and brand new crayons for a quarter. My husband says I'm an addict. My kids tease me too. I don't care. I LOVE IT!!! This is what Back to School 2010 looks like. (I do like to stock up for those notes coming home in Dec/Jan saying they need new stuff ... and I refuse to pay $3.00 for the same 24 count crayons)
One of the Wyne traditions is to exchange homemade Christmas presents. We decided that the best time to do it was at the reunion. It sure makes Christmas time less hectic. This year we hit the jackpot. We drew names and my parents had Doug & I. My mom made us this fabulous quilt. I absolutely love it. It matches everything in our room and it reminds me everyday that I'm loved. My dad made this for Doug. It was made on a scroll saw and represents everything that he loves: wildlife, singing, motorcycles, dogs, Boise State and of course the Savior. It is just beautiful.
Their luxury accommodations. 4 stars don't you think?
He is very glad that he went. He's not anxious to go again. There are other places he would like to see, plus we missed him. He came home sporting this...

The kids loved being outside and trying to flip each other over the cliff in the hammock. The fire pit was also a huge draw.
Oh, and the boys shot guns. Big guns. Loud guns. (can you tell)
We loved the time to just hang out and visit. They have invited us lots of times and we were sure glad that we took them up on their offer. Thanks guys!

This is the inside. It doesn't show up very good but her eyes are all red. The poor girl had a hard time with Nursery. We have thankfully moved past that. I also love it when her daddy comes home and gives me a great big kiss.
On this Father's day Doug was doing his monthly speaking assignment for the High Council. He did a fabulous job (as always) and I wanted to share it. It is long so I put it right under the picture of the 2 of us. It's entitled Prayer & Promptings. I love to hear him speak and bear his testimony of the Savior. He is so strong. Oh, how I love him.

Have I convinced anyone to come and visit us? We'll leave the light on for you.

The only sunburn to be had is on my left arm. I had it draped over the back of the chair while I read a book and didn't notice that it was left to bake in the sun. It is very redneck!

Kelsie was very excited to go but once she got there this is what we had. She did not want to smile or leave her dad. At the dance they have a hula hoop contest which she had told us about before we left. She said "I think I can win." I thought for sure she would not go out there. I was wrong. The contest is broken down by grade level. They called for the Kindergartners. She ran out there. (13 seconds)

Jordan finished up tennis taking 6th place in Mixed Doubles. Mason finished tennis. They both had end of year concerts. Jordan made Jazz Band next year. Mason will be his section leader. Pray for us!
I have been reminded lately of how fragile life is. I love my family here at home and those who don't live under our roof. Really!
