New Beginnings

Happy Weekend my dears!
Here in Tennessee Spring has come and I couldn't be happier about it!  It is sunny and bright this weekend and the tulip bulbs my boys and I planted last fall are starting to pop up!  I am seriously hoping all our hard work turns into a beautiful display and not a haphazard mess!  
(Last October)

I got a little carried away late one night and ordered 250 bulbs.  Yeah, I am not sure what I was thinking?!! I really questioned my good judgment when it came time to plant them all!  Sheesh that was A LOT of work!  I am crossing my fingers it looks pretty this Spring and not ridiculous:)  We shall see soon enough!

I know I have said it before, so I understand if you don't believe me but I really do want to turn over a new leaf when it come to blogging here and my recipe website The Sisters Cafe.  I really do miss it!  I have all these ideas of happy things I want to share and I really want to keep a little record here of my darling/ crazy boys who are growing up so fast!  And, I need to record all the adventures my oldest son is having on his mission for our church.  Elder Christensen is currently in Daphne, Alabama and is happily serving with all his heart which fills me with so much happiness!  
(Search and Rescue)
  He likes to send me goofy shots like the one above whenever I beg for pictures (he doesn't send many).   It is truly a JOY  to watch my son grow in his love of God and desire to serve Him and his fellow men.  

The rest of my crew is doing well and keeping Brad and I on our toes!

I hope you are all doing well to!  I have missed all my sweet blog friends!

Boy Weekend all the Way!

 We celebrated Bridger's Birthday with pizza and the movie Goosebumps.  I was a little worried about it being too scary, but the boys all swore they were not that scared!  Tough guys!!  Although Cannon admited at bedtime that parts were a little "freaky".  No bad dreams, luckily:)

I ended up with a couple of extra guys for my date night!  Our family babysitters were both busy---it can be a little tricky sometimes with teenagers!  They have very important social lives to work around, you know?!
We went to our favorite pizza place Lupis and I must say I felt pretty lucky to have 3 handsome dates!  Brad treat the boys to soda (so exciting).  It was self serve and they had way too much fun mixing drink flavors. Powerade with rootbeer, anyone? YUK!

My little boys!
I love them so much.

I think having a son grown up and out of the house has made me especially tenderhearted about this younger years.  I now know how quickly little boys grow up.  
I definitely think this works in their favor, especially EVERY night when they want me to come up to tuck them in and "scrackle" (scratch/tickle) their backs.:)
