I haven't wrote on here in a while, so I thought I better update a little bit :)  I just hate doing posts without pictures, but o well.  So I am starting school to become a medical assistant and I am a little scared.  I haven't been in school for almost 15 years and I am a little out of practice.  I think I will survive, but I am just nervous.   Dusty is working his butt off at Fusion-i.o.  The company has really been growing and it is exciting.  He got his first handgun and loves it.  With the start of spring he is getting more into the biking and wanting to go hiking, and I can't wait.  I need some outside exercise, this inside stuff is killing me :)  Ryan is a typical 8 year old boy.  He still wants to play games all the time, but we try and limit it to 1 hour a day.  He has recently got a new friend that comes over all the time and wants to play outside, so that is good for him.  He is working hard at scouts and earning belt loops and arrows all the time.  Jordyn is still a little munchkin!! She is loving kindergarten and learning to read and spell.  She is still such a little artist.  She is constantly drawing pictures of what the current holiday is.  Right now it is bunnies and they are better than I could ever draw.  Life is good right now, I couldn't ask for a better family!

Just got this hung so I had to post a picture of it!!! I got this at my new favorite store, Hobby Lobby, for 1/2 price!! I saw it and fell in love with it.  Since I am changing my kitchen from the flag theme to the black, white and red theme I thought this would look perfect...............and it does!!!

Another craft project!!

I have been all about craft projects lately.  I am just in a crafty mood right now :)  My latest one was these plates in my kitchen.  I got the black plates from all a dollar and printed the vinyl at the mall.  I could have done the vinyl myself, but it was actually cheaper to just have the people at the mall do it, so why not right?  I took the vinyl home and put it on the plates and they look way cute!!! So excited to start my next project.  What that will be I am not sure yet, but I am sure it will be amazing!!!

Dustys new "Toy"

Dusty got a nice little bonus from work a couple of weeks back and he decided that he wanted to buy this gun he has been wanting FOREVER!!! He got it and immediately wanted to take it shooting :) Unfortunately the weather was not on his side.  He had to wait a whole week before he could take it shooting.  Now for anyone a whole week wait to do something that you really want to do is like eternity!  When the weather finally agreed we went on the other side of Utah lake and took it shooting.  I have to say it is a pretty cool gun.  I don't like guns really, but this one is pretty cool.  Next time we take it, I will definitely need to bring ear plugs because my ears were ringing after shooting it once.  Both kids got to shoot it too.  Ryan loved it, Jordyn was like EH!  I think next time Ryan and Dusty will go shooting and me and Jordyn will go get our nails done :)
