We have had a eventful week around our house. Steve started having severe pain, last Wednesday night. I wanted to take him to the E.R. but he sure didn't want to go. After some timed passed, we ended up at the E. R. around 11:00 P.M. Luckily once he was given morphine, his pain calmed down. He was diagnosed with having gall stones. He had gall bladder taken out Tuesday, the 28th. He has been home, and resting. Today he did go into the office, and did pretty well. I just have to post a picture. He is to cute of a patient not to! :)

Greg Olson...

This one reminds me of my three boys, and our dog Austie.

This is my hearts favorite. It has been hanging in our home since Sarah's heart surgery. It is titled, For lo, I am always with you.

One of my favorite artists is Greg Olson. I have loved his his work for as long as I can remember. I signed up to receive a daily picture via Facebook. Here are some of my favorites. Enjoy!

This is a cake I found on the internet. Sooo cute!

When we were in California, we saw the cutest cupcake!!! I knew I was going to have to figure out how to make one myself! I have seen on a few blogs the cupcakes that are large, and made as a cake. When we got back to town I started looking for the cake pan/pans I would need. I found my cake pan at Joann's. It originally was 32.oo, but I used my 50% coupon. Sarah, and I just pulled the cake out of the oven. I will for sure post pictures, once we get it decorated. I am loving baking, even knowing it is 114 outside, and HOT in the kitchen! :)

Some California fun...

Nate, and his friend Chris.

Nate having fun on the beach!

We are back, and in full swing! I am just about done with all of the sandy laundry we brought back from California. :) We sure had a great time! The kids said that this was one of their favorite years at the beach. That makes me feel happy! We snorkeled, jet skiied, rode bikes, shopped, ate, went to church in Newport, visited the Newport Temple, spent a lot of time at the beach, laughed, and juist flat out enjoyed being together.
