My step-sister Jenae asked me to make a sign for her friend as a thankyou for letting her stay while she visited with some of her old friends back east. She said that this friend is always having band friends of her husband come and stay and always has girls that need help or temporary housing stay with them as well. I think the sign turned out great and I really hope Jenae's friend likes it! Thanks Jenae for giving me a challange...just a little bit different from my everyday decor items!

Hannah and Enoch have both had wonderful teachers this year at school. So today being their last day of school, I wanted to send a thankyou gift to each of them. I ended up deciding that my 8x8 boards make a great gift and personalized a quote for each of them.
Enoch's teacher Mrs. Campbell had given me this quote earlier in the year so hers reads: All that I have seen teaches me to trust the creator for all I have not seen -Ralph Waldo Emerson
Hannah's teacher has been teaching 2nd grade at the same school for about 20 years so I thought she might like this quote: Education: what remains after you have forgotten all that you have been taught.
We are so excited for summer to be here and hope for great teachers again next year!

Happy Birthday Kya Rose!!!
My youngest sister in law lives in Cedar City and her daughter's birthday is this sunday. they wont be able to come up to Salt Lake so we sent her this adorable board for her present. We (my kids and hubby and I) love Kya so much!! We love her mom Becky too! They lives with us until Kya was two and then we babysat while Becky worked for another 4 years. We are happy that Becky got married to Casey this last November and they moved to go to school, but we miss them so much! We wish Kya a Happy 7th Birthday! Cya soon!
