About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

  We were blown away by the Olympics Opening Ceremonies!  Wow!  Can you imagine what it would have been like to have been sitting in "The Bird's Nest" (name of the stadium where the ceremonies were held) tonight?!  We all sat captivated for over 2 hours...   I can't wait to see the gymnastics events!  What are you looking forward to seeing?

I was blown away!! I actually fell asleep before the torch lighting, but I did stay up to see the US team walk in. What a great ceremony! DH and my parents were up at 8 a.m. to watch the women's basketball team play. (One of our university's former players was on the team.) They won! I am most looking forward to swimming, diving, and gymnastics. Oh, and badminton of course. (Kidding! I had no idea that was an Olympic event!)

We can't wait to see Phelps swim. We've heard he's grown a Mark Spitz mustache in honor of trying to break his record. We've had the amazing opportunity to attend two Olympics. 1984 in LA and 2002 in SLC. It is amazing to be there in person!

As you know Jim keeps us so busy :o} I am so glad we know have DVR so we were able to record it!

By the time we got home Friday night to watch it we all fell asleep but Sydney.

Hunter and Sydney loved the swimming, male gymnastics, and volley ball on Saturday. {Parker was already asleep} they were not to happy to be sent to bed.

We have so much to catch up on :0}
