My hubby is 42 today! He is such a trooper!! I am so grateful for the hard work he does everyday to provide for our family. I am grateful that over 16 years ago, I made the choice to spend the rest of my life with him!
He is a great dad, husband, brother, son, employer, friend, and much much more!

Happy Birthday James!! Love you!

Happy Birthday Wellington!

Today my brother Wells turns 37! He's a great guy who always keeps me laughing. Have a great day, Wells!

Showing off his biking skills by his house in Pinedale

Crying because our bigger brother Mason won't share the chocolate from Grandma Allen's house :)

Decked out for Pop Warner football with his famous cousins same number 11 (Danny White)

His wedding day with Mason as his best man

Probably the cleanest and most clean cut you would ever find him as a child (and an adult!)

Here's to many more great years that lay ahead!

Back again to wish my sweet Emmalee Happy Birthday!!

Yes, today is another birthday in the flake house.Emmalee is 11 years old today. She is such a great daughter!! She came into our home when a little girl was exactly what we needed!! Here is a little trip down memory lane at some of her cutie pictures when she was little (and when I used to scrapbook!)

Here she is at age 2 1/2 at the park looking as adorable as ever!

Emmalee posing in her darling Easter dress I made for her. It was the first and last dress I ever sewed for her :)

Sliding down the slide at the park by grandma pidds. She looks so happy!

Emmalee was the HAPPIEST baby ever!! I was thrilled, especially since she had two stinky older brothers to deal with :)

She had so much black hair!! She is only 3 months old here. I love her chubby baby rolls!!

I just love emmalee!!

So...15 years ago today, I became a mom!

My oldest turns 15 today! That just seems unbelieveable!!! Not only do I feel old, but it seems like just yesterday that I delivered a healthy 9lb baby boy. Over the years, I have enjoyed watching Jordan grow up from a happy, chubby little baby to a curious and busy toddler, into a tall handsome young man!! Just last night, I took him with me to Wal-Mart to get treats for him to take to seminary. While we were there, I decided that he was now old enough to shave. So we bought him his own razor, shaving cream, and etc..he was embarrassed, I felt old, but now he looks even more handsome this morning on his 15th birthday clean shaven. He's such a great kid and I am happy he is part of our family!!
Happy Birthday Jordan!!
Love, Mom

Jordan only 8 days old visiting grandma pidds house. Love my gigantic glasses!!

great words to live by..

I had a friend ask me to make this into an 8x10 for her to keep on her wall. I know it's pretty familiar, but still great words to live by! Thought I would share...
