A Year Ago today

Hi Loved Ones,
Just a reminder that Granny passed away a year ago today. Take a moment to think of her and Papa. Remember that she wanted you all to be happy and to think positive. Her annoying ,"Things could be a lot worse" is so true. Hope all of you have the Chirstmas spirit growing. Hopefully, you all will get back to being blog happy, for I get so much enjoyment out of it. Wish ALL of Granny's grandkids would get more enthused about blogging so I can know what each of you are up to. Besides, Granny herself, I think that I miss her informative phone calls the most.
Love, Deb

I have on my blog some pictures from Thanksgiving, and playing in Las Vegas if you want to look at them. They are on the side under Libby's Pictures. Enjoy!


Chill'n in Kanarraville

So for all you who don't live in Kanarraville look what we enjoyed this Sunday afternoon. Can you say fatty, fried, and yes a little salty - but super YUMMY!!!

THANKS for Family

I think it's great that we have a family that is so close and we actually want to get together. Granny would be so proud. We had tons of fun and very little fighting. We missed all who couldn't make it this year and hope that when we do this in 2 years that we have more who can come. Anisa

THANKS for food

Thanks to everyone who helped pull this all together. Everything was delicious. I would love some of the recipes posted on here for everyone to enjoy. Thanks to Libby & Summer for planning and to everyone for helping!! Anisa

What other family had 2 different kinds of turkey, ham, baked beans, 3 different veggies, and like 10 different kinds of dessert for Thanksgiving? There may be others, but I doubt there are any other families that have homemade noodle soup over potatoes with pickled beets.

Are you excited?... my mouth is watering

So, I had to make a dessert for my dinner group tonight. I can not wait for Thanksgiving to eat Blueberry Dream Pie, so that's what I made... oh my goodmess, I'm in heaven. I can't decide what part I like the best. I love the buttery crust. I love the cream cheese filling. I love the blueberry topping. I love it all together. OOOOOOhhhhhh... soooooo yummmy. Are you excited for Thanksgiving yet?

Awesome Website!!!

For one of my classes at school we had to do an assignment with a savings account and how much money we can earn over a period of time. In doing so we had to find a website with a "savings calculator" I found this one: It's pretty easy to use and I have loved playing with it and figuring out my money situation. Enjoy!

Man vs Wild

Logan thanks for getting Lucas into this show. Logan came up this weekend and introduced us to "Man vs Wild" I almost threw up. I actually should thank cash for getting Logan into it, cause then he wouldn't have gotten Lucas into it. All I can say is I watched the guy eat a goat nut (he threw up himself on TV) and water from a camels stomach (we also watched him skin the camel). And this new one Lucas recorded I saw him drink water from elephant poop, how can I walk through the living room and not notice what is going on. So thanks!!!!

I was just thinking that maybe we should do a talent show on Thanksgiving. Nothing serious just do little stupid things like play twinkle, twinkle, little star on the piano or say the abc's. It's just an idea but I thought that it would be kind of funny.

Go Chargers!

Tanner just finished football. He was number 66 and he played on the line. They didn't keep places in the sixth grade football groups. He had lots of fun.

Love Aunt Debbie

p.s. Corbin broke his wrist yesterday.

Thanksgiving TV Season

You know what I miss are the "Friends" episodes that they did each Thanksgiving. One in particular was the episode where they go back in time and remember a thanksgiving where Monica lost weight...well - There was a funny quote that Joey said at the beginning of the show - thought I would share!

Joey says, "I am thankful for this beautiful fall we've been having. Yeah, the other day I was at the bus stop and this lovely fall breeze came in out of nowhere and blew this chick's skirt right up. Oh, which reminds me. I am also thankful for thongs."


Just getting you all into that Thanksgiving spirit!!!

Thanksgiving DINNER...

I am way excited for our Thanksgiving Dinner!!! I can't even think about it because I get all EXCITED!!! I hope I'm not the only one feeling this way!!! I also hope it is a success. Also, since I have been walking Chesley's dog - he informed me the other day that he will be able to make it - so yeah! Wish we could get everyone there! Libby

Lucas is so Awesome!

I thought I would brag about how great I think Lucas is. When he puts his mind to something he does it well. He told me a while ago he wanted to make a headboard for our guest bedroom, I was wondering what he was going to do. Well look at what a fantastic job he did. I love that no matter what Lucas wants to do he always figures it out. He is really great with building stuff, he is always wanting projects to do "I love it". Also I just wanted everyone to know that everyone is invited to come and visit us and stay in are lovely guest room(we still have some more decorating to do). We just bought a rambler with an unfinished basement so we will always have a guest room or two, for anyone who wants to come visit all of us up here in Salt Lake...

Two Peas in A Pod

We can't stress it enough how much these two are going to get into trouble together. Joren thinks he needs to be a baby with Legz... drool and all.


Just so you know, you have to read the post on Logan's site to understand the post that Lucas left below!

Logan's question

Notice any difference in the pictures.

Sunday Dinner

I thought I would try to make all of you jealous that you don't live in the Salt Lake Valley so that you can have Sunday dinner with us. Lucas and I take turns every Sunday making dinner. Today we had Egg Flower Soup, Fried Rice, Wontons with Sweet and Sour sauce and Lettuce Wraps. It was all home made. By the way... you are all invited if you're ever in this neck of the woods on a Sunday evening.

Let's get along!

Dear Family, I love this blog but I don't want it to be a competition or a knit-picking site. Post when you can because we all love it, but don't give anyone a hard time for not posting. I love to check the blogs and Granny would've too, but she wouldn't want anyone's feelings hurt. Love Aunt Debbie (mom).

Give us a break!!!

I just have to say that those of you who keep your blogs updated every day need to give those of us who have lives a break!! Some of us are very busy and don't have time to update every single day. Plus I don't have a digital camera so I can't put pictures up as often as I want to. At least I have more than one picture on my blog, Summer! I will try to update my blog more often, but please give me a break!!! I do have a new post on mine now if anyone would like to see it!!

Funny Sayings

I thought it would be fun to keep an ongoing list of the funny sayings of Granny's and Papa's. I put a few, but you guys can add to them.


June Raft Trip

Hey everyone I made another blog at to keep us updated on rafting information. (Sorry Mom). Just check it out.

Thanks Logan.

Hey Summer Bummer!!!

Everyone checks your blog like every day, and we are so sad to see nothing there but a family photo. I know you guys do stuff, so lets see some stuff on your blog. If it comes down to it, it might get deleted out of every ones favorites folder to save us from the anxiety. We love you guys.

Lucas and I am sure everone else

Upset with Sydney!!!

So I saw Anisa reading these books a while ago. I didn't think anything of then because she said she didn't really like them. I went to work and a couple ladies were talking and saying how much they loved the books. I thought well maybe I would read them, then Sydney convinced me that they were wonderful as well. So i decided to start reading the books. I loved the first one twilight. But I have reached the second book and it is driving me nuts. The book is not going they way I want it too, and all my free time has gone to these books. I am behind on stuff cause of reading. Now realize I hate to read, and I am now really into these books. I also hate series and find out after I started reading them there are 2 more books not yet published. I know reading is good for you, and ryan is always making fun of me because my reading consists of "people" or "Scrapbook" magazines. I just cannot put these books down and it is all Sydneys Fault. Plus the Second Book Sucks, she did warn me about that though. I cannot believe how obsessed I am to finished them. Thanks Sydney!!!

She is Growing Up Too Fast!!!

I just wanted you all to see how freaking fast this little girl wants to grow up. I was at work and went to put her in the pack and play. She grabbed the edge and stood there for a while, so I decided after I was done jumping up and down & clapping to snap a photo. She is so cute, I cannnot believe she is already 7 months old. Time goes by so fast, she wants to be all grow-up!!!
