Saturday Paul said to me "Where's my breakfast!" Wyatt said to his dad "you need to say will you and please, Dad." Paul asked again, "will you make me breakfast, Please." Wyatt said to me "No, mom can't make good breakfast, only you dad can." We both laughed, then Paul made his own breakfast.
I said to Wyatt, I need to cut your fingernails. Wyatt answered me back "Mom you can't cut them, then I can't pick my boogers.
Our dryer is broken and all apart. Paul came in and asked me "why haven't you fixed it yet." Wyatt said "Mom's not a worker, just you and boys like me, where is the drill I need it to help you."
Whenever I say that's so cute or handsome. Wyatt will say "Moms say cute but boys and dads say that's cool or awesome."
I didn't get in the photo the 4 huge zucchinis and 5 cucumbers that I pulled out the same day.

My Mom and her card playing friends go to southern Utah every summer to see some plays. This year she invited me. We drove down with two friends of hers, Pam and Kaylene. So we started our trip off with golf at Sky Mountain. The skies were blue and the greens were green. We had a lot of fun for nine holes.
Then off to the hotel. We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Hurricane. It was one of the nicest hotels that I had been to. It was great just to read my book in the room, but I ventured out to the cool pool and enjoyed a dip.
We got together later for a pot luck dinner that had way too much food on the table for all of us and then off to the play. We went and saw Big River. Now those that have not seen Big River and would like to, STOP READING NOW. Big River is about Huckleberry Finn going down the Mississippi River. About five songs into the play, as Huck and Jim are on their raft, all of a sudden this big wall of water come rushing out of the red rock behind the stage and flooded the stage, making the stage into a river. At one point the actors had rain coming down on them. With it being an open outdoor stage, they utilitized fireworks into both plays. It was a lot of fun.
Next day my Mom and I got up and drove over to my Great Aunt LaRee's house in Bloomington. It was fun to the hear the old stories about my grandmother and other ancestors.
Then we ran back to the hotel, picked up a few friends and off to Silver Reef, an old mining town. The ghost stories from the shop clerk in the museum and art store were quite amazing. What was even more interesting was the cemetaries back in the 1800s were separated their Catholics from their Protestants.
That night we saw Les Miserables. Amazing voices and singing, sad story, but still amazing!!!
The next day we started back late after quickly going through Kolob National Park, more amazing. In all, the trip was relaxing, fun, and just all around AMAZING.

I started a new quilt with lots of fabric I have had for awhile. The pattern is called the "Almost oh my gosh." As you can see I put a quarter on it so you can see how small each square is. I have to repeat this about 80 more times. Paul thinks this will take me 30 years to complete it, we'll see.
Dean love, loves canned pears, Dean doesn't eat fruit like Wyatt. Wyatt could eat fruit all day. I, with the help from my mom and mother-in-law, I have bottled my first pears ever. My mom got me lots of pears from a coworker and Dayna came over and showed me all the tricks of bottling them. Thanks for all your help ladies. Dean and Wyatt is going to love eating them.
This looks like a happy kid...

Candy, Candy, Oh how I love candy! I can smell it in the air, the sweet smell of fall. Candy corns, carmel apples, Halloween size candy bars. There is something about this time of year, I have to put out candy bowls all around the house full of these sugary treats. OOH, If I can't gain control soon I will be putting on 5 pounds before the holidays.
