Bountiful Baskets

Just got another bountiful basket. I had a little trouble getting it all in the picture. Here is what I got...
  • lettuce
  • 10 bananas
  • 5 Asian brown pears
  • grape tomatoes
  • a butternut squash
  • 2 bunches of broccoli
  • 5 navel oranges
  • celery
  • 8 cameo apples
  • 4 pummelos
  • 8 sweet potatoes
  • 2 bags of baby carrots

All this for $16.50. It is about $50 worth of produce. I love that we are eating more fruits and vegetables at a great price.

I can't get the link to work, but check out to see if you have a site near you.

Morning Surpise

Earlier this week it snowed over night. In the morning when I opened the window to see if the bus was at the bus stop yet, I found this note outside the window.
I have a very sweet husband who thinks of me just before heading to work at 4:45 in the morning! I love this guy!

It's been a while, so I thought I would update you all and let you know what we've been up to.

Here is a recent picture of the kids.

Morgan came down with croup right before Christmas and just hasn't been well ever since. Croup was coming back every other weekend. The cough and running nose never went away and the fever was off and on every 5-6 days. So when she complained that her ear was hurting her two weeks ago, I jumped at the chance to take her and get some antibiotics to kick whatever this was out to the curb. So, we get to the doctor's and of course no ear infection. But she had positive signs of pneumonia. 10 days cough, no running nose, no fever, and no croup. Yay!!
Here is Morgan being so good at taking her pink medicine. She said that it tasted like strawberries. (I had the medicine flavored with grape, but we all went along with the strawberry story.)
Kevan participated in the South Eastern Idaho Regional Chess Tournament, which happened to be held at his school. He took 6th in the 2nd Grade Novice Division.
Kevan with his trophy!

Other stuff...
-Wyatt is learning sight words in his preschool. It is so rewarding to see it click in their heads that letters all of a sudden create words!
-It's a boy! Due about June 18th. (doctor says 18th, ultrasounds says 16th, and I say 11th)
-Still couponing and loving it. Shawn doesn't care for the 5 Sunday papers we get each week. Especially when I am slow taking them to be recycled.
-Getting ready for Kevan's 8th birthday. Baptism is March 6th. And then there is cub scouts to get ready for too. This just might be the most expensive birthday yet!
-Loving our Dish DVR.
-I've been sick with a cold the last 6 days. Thank you Morgan and Wyatt!

This is our update. I'm sure there will be a lot more to come.
