Midway Ice Castles

I have been wanting to go see the ice castles in Midway all season.  It finally worked out on Feb.15th!  My mom and I went up.  My boring husband and kids didn't care to go.  So I went without them.

It was a little bigger than it was the last time that we saw it.  They've added a maze and some other cool things to see.  It was a nice warm day that we went.  It was in the high 50's so the ice was kind of melty and dripping all over us.

This is a view looking up out of one of the holes in the ceiling.

These were called the St. George Narrows!

Valentines Day 2014

I love decorating for holidays.  Really I love shopping for holidays more than anything!  I could spend hour upon hour in a home decor store.  But ask me to go clothes shopping and its like the worst possible thing ever!  EVER!

This year Molly, Sidney and I made sugar cookies.  
Jeff requested a massive one all for himself....

 So we made him a giant one all for himself.  I even made it with butter cream frosting - just for him.  Just like he likes.  For one cookie.  

The rest of us had cream cheese frosting!

We had gone to a Salem Hills High school basketball game on Valentines night.  Who does that anyway?  A HS basketball game-for VALENTINES?  We don't even have a kid who plays basketball.  But oh well.  That's just how exciting our lives are I guess.  While there, my dumpster diving son dug some flowers out of the trash and brought them to me.  They were even thrown away in a vase.  Cade is so sweet and thoughtful!  I love this kid.  Really, what kid sees something in the trash and doesn't think of his mom?  I know that sounds sarcastic but it's not meant to be.  He really is always thinking of others.  He has the biggest heart.  He has given me "second hand" ear rings, a mop and now flowers!  I love you Cade, you have a givers heart and that is really something special.

 I love to shop in home decor stores and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE making Valentine boxes.  I don't know why, but I do.  So for Cade's box this year I made him a monster.  He turned out so cute.  I love his toenails!

Molly's class made theirs in school.  I was bummed that I couldn't make one for her.  I had so many cute ideas....... But they were actually pretty cute.  She did a great job!

Color Me Mine

On Saturday, February 1, 2014 my girls, Nancy and I decided to go up to Midway to see the Ice Castles.  We made it to Orem and it started to snow.  By the time we got in the mouth of the canyon it was snowing really heavily and sticking to the ground.  So we turned around and went back down the canyon.  We ended up at Color Me Mine instead!

We all chose something to paint and got busy.

Nancy painted a new food bowl for her dog Jax, Sidney and I painted cereal bowls and Molly painted a skull and crossbones piggy bank.
