....yes, all these pictures are uploads from my cell phone.
no touch-ups, no special lighting.
i am pathetic.
i made lasagna back in the year 2000. right after cam and i got married. it was my mom's famous recipe...i don't know how i screwed it up, but i did. i swore it took me like 5 hours to make / cook. it tasted like cardboard. i threw the whole thing out. i vowed never to make lasagna again. i havent. until last month. my sister-in-law, you can call her Eve or SJ...she will answer to both :), swore on a "No-Fail" lasagna recipe. ive been cooking it ever since. probably cooked 10 lasagnas in the past two months...for my family, for my extended family on sunday, for a neighbor and for a young womens activity.
call it perspective or perseverance or just a really good recipe but sometimes in life you gotta take a step back, you gotta look at things from another person's point of view, forgive yourself, never give up, and enjoy the goodness in life - don't give up on it just cause it sometime taste like cardboard. these past couple months have been busy, ya know the madness and craziness of life. all of you can relate. but a dear friend moved to a state that i am not even sure where it is located in the US (yes you heid...where is iowa again?) and another is moving from Utah back to san diego and i can't help but luv blogs because they help me keep in touch with all the special people in my life. i luv reading and seeing your pictures...
here's a little update of my cam2 life...
i don't know who this child is. it certainly can't be my little jilly...i can't believe she will be 2 in may...how did her legs get so long...
lu...there are no words. i luv this girl to pieces.
st. patty's day rocked. thought of the lind's & edgington's :)
lucy & savannah were sick the whole month of february...this is no joke. savannah will have her tonsils & adenoids taken out in two weeks :/
a fun girls weekend to salt lake city with the kesler girls...a three hour excursion in IKEA, a session at the Draper temple, delicious food at Cheesecake Factory, some shopping, awesome tours on Temple Square, a brisk walk with M.L.K, and of course "Who's Terri?"
THREE ski days with cam in ONE month. beautiful, beautiful weather. the best company ever. park city. brighton day. brighton night.
spring you are so close...i won't give up on you. i will continue to walk and run and beg for your arrival...you are so close!
tell me she doesn't make you laugh too?
savannah j. turned 7. sigh. she got a trampoline. best investment we have ever made. the girls are oBseSSED! i had a fun date night with her at the Salt Lake Real soccer game...just me and Vanny. luv her. a little bff. funny. silly. sensitive. smart. strong.
been working on a quilt...i figured since i couldn't go to hawaii this year with emily and my mom (who are going in ONE WEEK :( that i would instead make a hawaiian quilt...pathetic again right. its taking forever but i refuse to put the card table away so it is sitting in my front room...totally a mess and i sew a square any spare moment i can. lucy is a great helper!
so many reasons to luv this photo...i was at my wits end, cam had been working a 24 hour shift. it was sunny outside - THANK YOU SUNSHINE - but it had been a LONG day...didnt want to cook so i headed to iceburg, but along the way there was a neighborhood girl selling snowcones so we bought one for everyone...my little niece ellie was having a sleepover. so we were waiting in the drive through and the car was full of pandemonium...jilly had a bloody nose and was screaming blood murder because she wanted her own slush, savannah was crying because she was sick of sharing her slushee, a fire truck was going by so ellie and lucy were laughing and screaming at the top of their lungs...and me, i was just taking it all in...moments later...
have i mentioned i luv utah.
and i luv waking up to lucy snuggled in my bed.
jilly is everywhere and into everything at all times of the day in all different ways. be afraid be very afraid.
and a very fun visit from my niece morgan from denver...so luv you morgy! swimming at the rec center...
and then there is me...depressed after the byu loss and to put a knife in my back, the duke loss. jimmer it was fun. duke, obviously you will be back in full effect next year...no doubts. march i luv you.
and to my life, i luv the madness.
