Life is Great in 2008

The theme for my family reunion fondly called the "Blood Drive"  This is a group shot minus a few keys family members namely Bryce and Candice clan my dear husband Jeff and cute Brook and Rich I think Brandon weaseled out of it too but he was really there somewhere.
This is lovely I know but we were camping!!

This was the view from the camp site.  We were in Fish Lake it was beautiful and a nice break from the humidity in Michigan.  (This was last weekend I am just slow posting!!)


Seems like so long ago already! The cool beauty of Utah has not been good for our desert survival! You'll have to email us the not so pretty picture of us before we left. Brandon is actually in the picture and Camden and Tucker looking at each other is priceless.

He hates the dark, wonder where he gets that!? As always, pretty little girls in the new posts!

You will need: 3 Tablespoons Baking Soda 8 ounces Hydrogen peroxide 1 drop dish soap Mix together well and use right away. My mom discovered that if it is not mixed well the baking soda will clog the sprayer.  You also can't store this apparently it doesn't last in the bottle and it is no longe
