back, and blogging...

Last night we had YW's at one of the other leaders houses. She set up a movie screen, popcorn, drinks, goodies, etc. in her backyard. We had about 13 beehive girls that were there. They are so cute at this age. 12-13. We watched the Ultimate Gift. I have seen this movie before, and really liked it. It was good to see it again. It is one of those movies that really makes me stop, and think. If you haven't seen it, I would recommend it for sure.

I have been working on Father's Day gifts. My cousin Ashley and I started working on these last week. I would love to post pictures, but, I am afraid Steve may take a peak, at my blog before Father's Day. I had thought that he rarely looked to see what I was posting about. Well, at Christmas I posted about a gift I was making him. On Christmas day he mentioned reading about it!!! I was more surprised than him! :) I will post pictures after Father's Day for sure. Do any of you have some fun Father's Day ideas that you would like to share? I would love to hear them! :) Well, I am off to start my Thursday. It feels good to be back, and blogging again. Steve has been out of town, and now that he is back I can take a big sigh of relief. I was at the office trying to make sure things ran smoothly that last few days. That alone is a huge job in itself! :)

I love the Ultimate Gift. My daughter and I bawled our eyes out.

I am in the same situation as last year. I have no ideas. For my father yes, but my husband no. So thanks for the link.

Have a great day.

My husband reads my blog too. So I can't mention anything.. I went shopping for him last night, but still want to make something cute with the kids.
I was at McDonalds Monday & there was a lady there that I thought kindof looked like you. I kept staring at her & was going to ask her if her name was Michelle... But she wasn't blonde enough to be you..
I just saw this movie last week. I really enjoyed it too. Had a really good story & feel.
