Tag You're It

*tag* I'm it!

Here are the rules:
1. Go to your my documents/my pictures
2. Go to your sixth file
3. Go to your sixth picture
4. Blog about it
5. Tag six people
Here is the nasty before picture taken to show what my vanity looked like before I painted it. And here's after...
Who's it?

Working Girl

After staying home with my boys, for over 4years, I had forgotten what it felt like. What is this task?
1work           Listen to the pronunciation of 1work
1: activity in which one exerts strength or faculties to do or perform something: a: sustained physical or mental effort to overcome obstacles and achieve an objective or result b: the labor, task, or duty that is one's accustomed means of livelihood c: a specific task, duty, function, or assignment often being a part or phase of some larger activity.


I've concluded that it is in fact all of these things PLUS tired feet and upper back pain. For now, my tasks include scanning documents (endless piles of papers) and mailing things.

That is my update.

A Reason to Celebrate

Today is a day to celebrate, some very special men aka Presidents, have served our country.
I'm speaking of someone far more dear,
someone kind, nice and much more near.
A person you'd be lucky to call your friend,
and because she's my sister,
our friendship and love will never end.
Wendy is celebrating her 31st birthday today. She is a huge blessing in my life. She has so many great qualities. She's brilliant, thoughtful, funny, always quick and good for a laugh. She's giving and generous always finding the perfect something that is needed. She's a great mom to her 3 sons. She still she manages to balance and squeeze in taking care of herself (she's training for a triathlon). She also works as a RN for the Mayo Clinic.
Happy Birthday Wendy! Love you tons!

My Funny Valentines

So our V-day was not exactly traditional. I did however enjoy watching and laughing at my boys. Here's why I think they are funny. Two words WATER ROCKETS. The photos tell the story well.

The Gift that keeps giving...

The first 3 people to leave a comment on this post will receive a gift from me during this year. When and what will be a surprise. There's a small catch though...Post this same thing on your own blog and then come back and leave a comment telling me you're in. Fun, huh? Remember, only the first 3 comments receive the gift!

Snapshots of fun...

Ty's new best buddy

The sweetest moment of the day!

On Saturday, I had the opportunity to attend a very nice Stake Enrichment Meeting. It was a nice break and chance to chill with my sisters.

Sarah None

At birth, I was given no middle name.This was intentional, as it allowed the perfect spot to maintain "Shumway" or S. once I married.
Unfortunately, I took this very seriously.

I was jealous of long beautiful
"complete" names.
Alas, I was doomed to remain Sarah None until I married.
A friendly neighbor across the street loved to taunt me with this name. Somehow for me, it stuck. Due to this childhood silliness, I'm extraordinarily happy to use Sarah S. Foote. And I use the S like it's going out of style. I finally have a complete name and I am no longer Sarah None
(The photos are of my blessing day and wedding.)
Wendalee Shumway & Sarah None... I love this picture!

Our 1st Family Photos

Alex was simply siked to so close to a "waterfall" otherwise known as a water pipe.

Tyson was annoyed by the idea of being contained for the photo.
More to follow as time allows...
