You are special!!!

Ok, so I promised pics of the party last night but with the comotion of it all, I forgot to grab my camera. Although, I did get a pic this morning of one of the highlights of our Fathers Day...This is what I got my hubby from the kids. Its a vintage T-shirt of Mr. Rogers. YOU ARE SPECIAL!

HA HA HA!!!! We laughed, and he loved it. He's into those funny t-shirts. Among the favs are his The Christmas Story shirt with the kids' tongues stuck to the flag pole, and one that says "My anger management class pisses me off."

I also got him a huge bag of M&Ms which he loves. We had a great night with the fam and now its back to the grind...

Happy Fathers Day!!!

Happy Fathers Day To all the "Men" in my life!!!!
Yesterday we got to spend some time up in Ogden with Mom, Russ, and Gramps. We also got to see all the cousins and cousin's kids...It was great. Im so glad we are staying close since Grammer died. I love spending time with my cousins. We had some funny stories goin' last night. We laughed and laughed...The food was good too...even the beans MOM!!!! The only thing missing was Nat and Rob. Miss you Nat!!!
Today Jared had to work which he wasn't happy about...usually he gets to golf on Fathers Day but he'll live, he golfs every other day anyway right???? We are getting together with his family and my dad and Connie for a BBQ later tonight. The pool is set up and all the kids will be swimming. It should be fun! I'll take pics and post them tomorrow.
Everyone have a great day!!!
Love you!

The Toothfairy has come to an end...

Ok, so this happened a few weeks ago but I need to document it before it leaves my mind for good....My sweet daughter who is 11 (a little old to still believe in the toothfairy) recently lost a molar tooth and was preparing for the tooth fairy to come. She has always pulled her own teeth out by the way (ewwww, heebie jeebies). So she decides she is going to write the toothfairy a letter to go in the baggie with her tooth. I was like ...ok, I guess. I asked her if I could read the letter. It said 'Dear Toothfairy, I would like $40.... please' And thats it...I was shocked!! Yet I couldn't help but crack up laughing. She didn't think it was funny. I said "Oh, Emmy, I don't think the toothfairy can afford $40". And she said "Well can she afford $10?". And I said "Well the most I think she's ever given for one tooth is $5 but its usually only $1. But you will just have to wait and see I guess. Here's a pic of the letter. As you can see, she changed it from $40 to $5. Isn't she great?

So the toothfairy that I am, I pondered this for a long while. Everyone was in bed almost asleep and I kept telling myself, Ive got to get up and put money under her pillow, but sure enough I dozed off without doing it. I woke up the next morning freaking out that I forgot to do it...So she was still sleeping but she's such a light sleeper and every time I opened her door she stirred a little.

I decided it was time to tell her truth about the toothfairy. I just told her "Ya know Em, your 11 now and you're old enough to know on and so on....Needless to say, she took it quiet well. At first she had a look of disappointment on her face but when I said I would give her $5 for her tooth and her "cute" letter anyway, she perked right up and hasn't said another thing about it.

Oh, by the way, she still believes in "THE OTHERS". So we will leave it at that.

This is my family!!! This picture was taken at my dads house, on his porch.

This is me. This is my life.

Hi There!!! Im Jana!
Never done this before. I heard some people talking at work about blogs and how you can turn them into books. I thought (being the scrapbooker that I am), how neat!! I'll start by giving a bit of history of me and my family!!!
I am 34 years old and I have been married to Jared Nickle for 14 years. I am the mother of 2 precious kids. Emily is 11 and Avery is 7. We live in West Jordan, Utah and we have 2 dogs, (Trixie Belle and Riley) and 2 cats ( Alex and Scodats).
I am a hairstylist in a local Day Spa where I work part time (3 days a week) doing hair services, pedicures and manicures. Its such a calming, relaxing place to work. I love it! Just enough time away from home to socialize with people.
I started crafting about 3 years ago. Never thought I would be a crafter, never wanted to for that matter but I went to a stamping club as a guest of my friend one night and the rest is history basically!! I love making cards, scrapbooking, altered projects....and on and on.
I am a Christian woman that walks daily seeking the will of God in my life. My desire is to raise my kids with Christian values that they would grow up to be successful, Godly adults.
