Make your Blog a book!

So I was perusing digishoptalk today and someone posted a link I have been looking for! It's a company that changes your blog into a book. The thing that I love the most about it, is that this sort of takes care of two birds with one stone. I can blog/journal...well, at least the highlights, and then get it into a family book! It makes me so happy! I like digi scrapping because I think it really captures the moments in our lives that are interesting and beautiful, but I tend to put a lot of "other" stuff on my blog...things I'm into, funny antidotes about the kids, etc.

So tired of me rambling about it, and just want the link....lol. Here is it http://www.blurb.com/create/book/blogbook . Check it out and tell me what you think!

Pioneer Day and Lola's B-day Party

In Utah, we have a Pioneer Day celebration on the 24th of July. I've never really celebrated it before (mostly because I only lived in Utah as an undergrad), but we had a great time going to the parade and having a bbq with friends and family. Here are some of the highlights:

water balloon toss with Liz and Caroline (me and Siri).

Felicity doing a lot of wandering around (and generally having a great time) at the bbq

My two angels! (Flissa has her bottle because she was almost ready for bed)

Siri's obsession with Bob and Judy's Sugar Plum Princess and fairy dolls (yes, she took these pictures)

Watching the fireworks

Making "snakes" (Siri's favorite part!)

And because I have been a slacker (and didn't post these ON Pioneer Day), I also have photos of Lola's Birthday Party from last night. It was at Nate and Michelle's house and was SO fun! The first part was outside...there was a huge wind storm that can in and blew away napkins, plates, chips...I even chased after a sack and got made fun of (I couldn't really tell if I was going to really get it or not, so I kept stopping then chasing...you can imagine how ridiculous I looked).

I can't believe Lola is 2! Happy Birthday Lola!

The birthday girl!

Tim and Jack

I feel like this is the face I got from her every time I snapped a picture!

My Minds Eye

So I was with my friend Jen B. (Art Director at My Minds Eye) yesterday and she gave me a peek at the new line at My Minds Eye (that's a scrapbooking company for all you non-scrappers out there). Holy cow, it is BEAUTIFUL. They have all these gorgeous elements with glitter letters and glitter paper. Normally, I am not a "glitter" person, but she COMPLETELY converted me! The stuff is fabulous and will be showing at the CHA conference this weekend. If you want to peek at the lines, look here: mymindseye.com.

It's pretty awesome to look at on the Internet, but wait until you HOLD the stuff! It is awesome!

Fourth of July

We had a great fourth of July! We went to Kaysville to be with family and check out the water parade. We then had a quiet BBQ at Mary's house and walked to the Sugarhouse fireworks (If I had any idea it was going to be a mile there and back...I don't know if I would have agreed!).

here's some pics!

Flissa and her second cousin Austin getting in the pool clothing and all!

Siri, cold and wet.

Uncle Nate, cousin Lola, Siri and Flissa and fireworks!
