No Fear.....

I've always considered Saige a bit fearless, but yesterday confirmed our thinking. Adam and Natalie took us out to Utah Lake to play, and Saige had a great time. She immediately jumped right in, something Natalie and I both wouldn't have done because it was just too cold, but it didn't seem to bother Saige one bit.

Adam then pulled out the wake surf board and was showing us some tricks, quite impressed with Adam's skills I must admit.
Then Matt tried and did well for his first attempt, but if Matt would fall Saige would say, "OK Mom, its my turn!", or "I want to jump in now!" So we let her try! Adam took her out with him, got settled on the board, dropped the rope and she surfed away!!! She loved it too! Didn't want to come back in.

And Milo was quite content sitting with the girls, eating candy, two of his most favorite things in the world. He's such a chubby guy!!

Thanks Adam and Natalie we LOVE having you live by us now!! (Just don't get too sick of us!)

I ask to take a picture of both children and I get completely different responses!! Does Saige remind you of someone else?

Happy Happy Birthday Poppa!!

What an amazing Dad I have! Today is his 51st birthday and I hope he knows how much I love him. He has been an inspiration to me as long as I can remember. I am so lucky to have been able to work with him and get a kiss on the forehead from the boss everyday. He has such a great relationship with our Heavenly Father and has always honored his priesthood and brought our family the blessings of the priesthood. (Which is a task with 7 women to take care of). He always makes me feel so welcome and I love to see his face light up when he sees my family. My children love him and love playing with "Banka". Thank you for all the lessons you have taught me, and the things I am still learning from you. Happy Happy Birthday! I love you

gygi recipes

So after dragging my feet, and pure laziness, We have decided to start adding recipes to our Gygi blog. I really have failed as a "blogger" neglecting both blogs, but with many requests for recipes and how to use items we are selling at Gygi's I felt it was needed. So I am hoping by posting this and letting everyone know, it will keep me on the ball and add at least ONE recipe a week, and/or fun things to do. Just keep in mind- - I enjoy baking much more than cooking, so be patient with me if there are much more desserts than anything else, but when is dessert a bad thing??? PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE email me if you have fun recipes, or just ideas, either here or on the gygi blog, orsongygi(dot)blogspot(dot)com, we are always interested in seeing what people can do! I am so amazed how creative everyone truly is! And if you are reading this and never been to Gygi's lets plan a field trip cause if you A) cook B) bake or c) breathe YOU NEED TO COME SEE WHAT A GREAT PLACE IT IS!!!!

I thought since it was cooling down and the summer is coming to an end, which I am not too excited about but that is a whole other post, I'd change my background, but I accidently erased all the contacts. SO if I don't have yours on the side PLEASE leave me a comment so I can check yours. SORRY if I have left yours off, its 11:30 and I am ready for bed. Please forgive me. Also,-- Saige's birthday pictures are coming soon, and other fun things thatI have neglected over the past few weeks, its hunting time which means I AM A SINGLE MOM !! Good thing we love you Matt.
