Digital Scrapbooking!

Yay for digital scrapbooking! This is my first attempt and I was so proud of myself...not that it is the best thing in the world but that I actually figured it out! It took me....a while...but next time it won't be so hard! Yay! Any advice, ideas, words of wisdom from you digital scrapbookers out there would be wonderful! (Thanks to those who have already helped!)

I thought this would be better for the than regular scrapbooking because that just seems to stress me out...odd, I know but if I make a mistake the digital way I know I can fix it! :)

Go Cards!

So last Monday for FHE we went to the Rockies game because they were playing the Cardinals. I was a little worried to see how Morgan would do because she was pretty bad all day long. (We just took her to the doctor this Monday and found out she has an ear infection so I guess it was justified) Anyway, first off you can take food into their stadium which is AWESOME! So we hauled in our goods and got ready to watch to game. Jeff got us great seats, they were second row! We got there early and watched the players warm up and sign balls. Jeff saw someone semi-famous, he saw one of the sports anchors from The Mountain. So that was exciting. The game finally started and Morgan was LOVING it! She was loving everything! She sat patiently on my lap for the first four innings and just people watched. She even did well after that she was just a little more squirmy. It was so fun, and such perfect weather. I am excited to go to a FEW more games this summer! :)

Despite the look on Morgan's face she really did have a good time!

We went all out with RED! We also had a Cardinals tattoo that she was excited to wear!

Happy Mother's Day!

I was going to write this post a couple of days ago but I kept trying to get my thoughts in order. I mean how to you really put into words how you feel about your Mother? I know everyone thinks they have the best mom, but I know I do! In fact, I have TWO! My mom and my mother-in-law. :) The two of them are so differnt but somehow are both AMAZING!

My mom is the nicest, most patient, most giving person I know! I have always gotten along with my mom, in fact I can only remember her being mad at me once growing up and I deserved it! But, I never had that teen problem with my mom. She always knew everything and she still does! I have always appreciated my mom, but until I had Morgan I never realized how much she did for me and how much she loved me. I am so grateful for such a wonderful example in my life. If I can only be 10% of what she is I will be one lucky girl! Love you Mom!!!

My Mother-in-Law, Mom Lois, is one hard working cookie! Not just in the working world but in anything she does. She wants to make every moment special. I think she see just how short this life is and wants to make is as special and memorable as possible. She is a spiritual giant. She knows doctrine in and out and I love love love to sit and listen to her and learn something new every time! Love you Momma Sucher!

I think the most important thing that both of my Moms have accomplished is that they have both taught their children the importance of the gospel. Not just by teaching them the doctrine but living it in their lives everyday. I am so grateful for both of these beautiful women in my life and I hope I can live up to their examples. If I can my kids are going to be pretty lucky! :)

Now to Grandmas! (I am sorry, anyone who is bored can just stop reading, but I can't skip my Grandmas!)

My Mom's mom passed away when I was a freshman in high school. I was one of 62 grandkids! Because of SOO many grandkids I didn't get to know her as well as I wish I did but I remember that whenever she called she was always so sweet and she always knew what was going on in my life. Pretty impressive for being one of 62 grandkids!

My Dad's mom has always lived far away and we were only able to see her a few times a year. I just loved her crazy stories of her riding the bus, when she was a younger girl and her dating years! She has some great stories! She loves to have a good time wherever she goes!

Now, since I got married, I inherited some of the best Grandma's you can ask for that aren't blood related! Grandma Wirig and Grandma Sucher and taken me in like I was really one of their own grandkids. Not having my real grandma's close it was so fun for me to see Grandma's in motion! I LOVED every minute!

Grandma Wirig is so domestic! I mean that in a good way, this is how I want to be one day! She knows how to do everything! Cooking, sewing, crocheting...everything! The best part it she is willing to teach you anytime you want! I just wish I still lived in Utah to more take advantage of it!

Grandma Sucher is probably the most thoughtful person I have ever met! I don't know if I have ever had someone besides Grandma Sucher who has called me and said can I come babysit? I remember when Morgan was first born...I was a little overwhelmed and I was finishing school she called and asked if she could come and help me for a week! Just knowing someone was thinking about me and willing to sacrifice a whole week to come help me was one of the nicest things someone has done for me.

I think I am one of the luckiest people in the world when is comes to my Moms. I have been so blessed with a wonderful example of womanhood in my life. I wish everyone was so lucky! I could go on about all the other special women in my life but I will spare you and save it for another day! But thanks to all the special women in my life, sisters, sisters-in-law, friends, co-workers....I could go on but Heavenly Father has blessed me with these special ladies and I hope that my kids will be as lucky!

Random pictures

Morgan got this cute little outfit from her cousins in St. Louis and I forgot she had it. She found it in her bottom drawer and she had it on the rest of the day.

This is Morgans friend Sam who she loved playing with. He moved to California for the summer and every time we are on a walk she looks at me and says Sam? Sam? Poor thing, we can't wait for them to come back!

I was watching Sam one day while his parents were packing and they were playing on the patio and this is what I saw them doing. I didn't even pose them for the picture! How cute!!!

This is Morgan and her friend Ellie. Every Wednesday our husbands play softball and this night Morgan fell off the bleachers and ed her lip open. Ten minutes later Ellie did the same thing...poor things!

Sorry that I am always posting pictures of Morgan, but that is what my life consists of at the moment!
