Sunday Picture

Wow am I off my game this week. 
I forgot to post this picture of the girls this past Sunday.
I didn't go to church this week. I woke up with a sinus headache and so sleepy,
 I would have slept through it all anyway.
So when Alan and the girls got home I was still asleep and missed taking a picture.
Later in the evening they had BYD, Bishop Youth Discussion.
Our Bishop has this meeting once a month where the youth get together at Bishops house and they visit, have a discussion about different topics regarding the gospel and treats.
Faith and Gabby went to the meeting and E'lyse had a presidency meeting that she didn't need to wear church clothes. Therefor E'lyse didn't get a picture of her pretty dress she wore earlier to church. 
E'lyse, Faith and Gabby

Exercising With Kids

I  was contacted by this website called Nanny Website . 
I found this article helpful. One of my biggest mistakes ever was not putting myself at the top of 
TAKE CARE LIST. Meaning not making time or figuring out how to exercise with kids. 
This article would have been very helpful 
Hope this can help out someone. 
Hugs, Bobbi Jo 


This is one of my favorite yogis Rodney Yee. 
Drew and E'lyse practiced a little yoga 
Saturday Faith had a math competition
This was after she got home with her new cool shirt.  
Here is the back of the shirt. Love it! 
Unfortunately her school didn't win any awards but they had a good time.

Sunday Picture & Road Trip

Here is my Sunday picture of the girls. 
E'lyse, Faith & Gabby
Not your typical Sunday picture. Long story short. We were suppose to go to Pinetop this weekend.
I have been battling a cough and Coco was worried I might be contagious so I am was not sure either.
So we decided to play it safe and go up in a few weeks. 
We were already packed and headed out of town so we asked the girls what do you want to do now? 
We decided to go to Jerome and Sedona. 
The girls have never been to Jerome. So it was fun to take them there.
I would have loved to get out and walk around but Alan just doesn't get into that.
Jerome use to be an old hippie town. Most of the homes are built on the sides of the mountains. 
It is so cool. The houses are so old and awesome looking.
This was headed up the hills to Jerome. 
Another one 
Legends say there is areas of Jerome that are haunted. There is a old hotel with a restaurant that is sad to have many spirits roaming around.  
We stopped to play in the snow and stretch out our legs 
Gabby and E'lyse 
My silly girls 
E'lyse, Faith and Gabby
E;lyse with her little snow ball
Driving into Sedona.
It was a fun quick trip. We didn't stop in Sedona due to it was getting a little late and we wanted to get home at a decent time. 
Faith in the back of the truck at gas station
E'lyse on the way home 
Gabby asleep on E'lyses lap on the way home. 
I love spending time with the family and checking out cook places. Maybe next time we will go and walk around.

No Picture Down Load Friday

Oh I have been so lame this week. No extra pictures taken for today. 
I honestly have felt so yucky most of this week. I got a text to go to work on Tuesday and right after that I started coughing and it went on from there.
I went to work on Tuesday did the massages came home and I crashed. I started getting chills and feeling super tired. So the rest of the week I have been sleeping a lot getting over this. 
Well I do have to give myself a little high five for getting a little bit of workouts in this week. 
I was planning on changing up my workouts but I just knew my body could only do so much.
I saw this and just had to share this with you. 
I truly believe this. 
Not that I always have a Pollyanna attitude but I try to stay up and positive. 
I am doing better today than I have all week. So glad the coughing is making my stomach hurt so bad. 
I also lost my voice . A extra blessing to my family.
Hugs, Bobbi Jo

Over the weekend said to me that she wanted to start wearing dresses to school. 
Then Gabby said she did too. 
On Saturday Alan took the girls on a Daddy Daughter Date.
They went to dinner and went shopping. The girls love Goodwill so that was where they requested to go.
HOT DOG for them everything was 1/2 off. These are two of the outfits they got. 
Then Alan took them to Payless to get some shoes. Faith picked out these cute little Keds and Gabby picked out the navy blue wedges.
I think they look great! 
Faith also used some of her babysitting money and bought 3 other dresses off the internet.

Sunday Picture ~Week 2

This morning at our church the power all of the sudden went off. So they sent out a notice that church was being canceled. Well we didn't get the notice so we went to church. Apparently before everyone was notified the power came back on. I didn't have my ringer turned on my phone so I didn't get my text from my friend till I got home. Oh well, we were there and things went good other than the Relief Society room was freezing! 
(The Relief Society room is where they have the ladies class- for those of the ages of 18 and up.)
The meeting were good and I enjoyed feeding on the gospel. 
Time for Sunday picture
I come down stairs to take pictures E'lyse is playing the piano and Faith and Gabby chatting away.
E'lyse, Faith and Gabby 1-13-13 
 E'lyse and Gabby making mustaches with Faith's hair
Goofy faces
E'lyse ready to bite, Gabby with Duck lips and Faith growling
 Girls being silly some more
 E'lyse hiding in Gabby's hair
I was trying to get a good picture of Faith and Gabby kept jumping in front of the camera 
 Again Gabby photo bombed Faith. Gabby loved how her nose looked huge in this she kept laughing at it.
Faith and the only picture I could get of her after Gabby bombing Faith too many times. 
Tomorrow is a new week. Ready for the week I think!

Picture Download Friday ~2

Gabby came in my room with this on her mouth.
I started laughing seeing that she had spelled HELP wrong. 

 Gabby painted this rock for E'lyse he is Mr.Hedgehog
 Nellie is truly my dog.
 I was taking some celery up to E'lyses rat Rilley and Nellie came up and tried to get a piece out of my hand.
She grabbed it and ran upstairs to her bed 
 She really enjoyed chewing on it
 When I would go to take it from her she would attack it
She probably would have eaten it if it had peanut butter on it. That is her downfall. 
Hugs, Bobbi Jo 

Picture Download Friday

Hubby went varmit calling and hunting with his Nephew Nathan.
Alan knows  how I love the fog and pretty scenery 
he had Nathan take pictures and email them to me.
The first one is my hubby Alan. 
He loves to varmit call, it isn't so much the thrill of the kill anymore more of being able to call in an animal with his calls. When he is getting ready to go hunting you will hear him practicing the calls. 
The mountain side with fog
 This is the desert outside of Globe, Arizona 
 And one more.

Trying To Save More

I have to admit that I use to not be a saver. In fact I was a spendaholic. If I had money I had to go buy something. My worst purchases were honestly on food. Not that this is a major thing but we really didn't need that much for our storage. Well I guess you could say it was a very, very well stocked food storage. 
Does that make since? It was like I was scared of running out of food. Hence it shows in the weight gain. 
I was unhappy with me so I fed myself by spending money and then having buyers remorse.
Although it is great to have my food supply it honestly got out of hand. If it wasn't food it was craft supplies.
Up until I started going minimalist I didn't realize how much I was spending and what a waste it was.
I found this chart on a blog (OH MAN! I can't remember what blog it was. SNAPADILLYDINGDONG! )
Well I decided to do this for this years part of saving goal. Now this isn't the only one but this is the one I am doing on my own. I love a challenge.
If anyone knows where this chart came from I would like to thank the person, so please let me know.

Crown Of Braids

 This is a crown of braids.
Gabby has E'lyse braids and she sleeps with them in. 
 Slowly she looks up at me 
 And becomes a creeper 
In the morning her hair looks like this. Actually this is after a day of school. 
 Here is the back of her hair. I think it is so pretty.
 It is impossible to get a picture of these two where both are smiling and not making goofy faces
 Finally I get one
Faith and Gabby
