2016 Blue Jeans Week 7

What a week.  It was parent teacher conferences so the kids got off Thursday and Friday.  We had a great family day in the city Friday and got exciting college news Saturday!  College.  ugh.  That exciting thing is coming way too fast.  Take a look at our week. . .
Sunday Valentine's Day dinner was at my mom's and my girls rocked it in the dessert department!  Valentine's day trifle and tuxedo dipped strawberries.  They were a hit!

It is cub scouts pinewood derby time again.  Ben and Mr J are working hard on his car.  

Forensics is in full swing for Miss A.  She qualified for state in poetry a few weeks ago and this week she qualified for state in impromptu speaking.  She was excited about that!

Friday family day to the city--the kids rockin' out on the drive there.  So fun!

We went to a marble factory, did some shopping, went ice skating--in 70 degree weather, went out to eat and just had a great day together.  

On the way home they were a little quieter :) Love this shot.

And Saturday we got the official news that these two cute girls are headed to BYU in the fall! (that is why they are making the "Y" sign :) Miss A will be a 3rd generation BYU cougar!  So proud of her!  These two will be roommates and super excited for them!!!

Thanks for visiting!  Hope you have a great week and come back soon!


  1. Those desserts looks amazing and your time in the city looks like a blast. Congrats on BYU! It's so nice she will have a friend to go with. Tyler is hoping that may happen for him too but we'll have to see. I have a feeling him and all his friends will end up in different locations because they all want different things. We won't know for sure until after March when the last of the offers come in.

  2. Look at them all snuggled up fast asleep, but still with seat belts on! I am super impressed. Looks like tons of fun, wish we were there!
    Congrats on the Y! Great way to celebrate the weekend. ;)

    1. It is funny they kept their seat belts on, huh? Wish you were here too!

  3. I know I'm way behind in reading your blog, so I'm playing catch up.
    Those Valentine desserts look INCREDIBLE! How cute are those tuxedo strawberries! :)
    Congrats to Miss A! Goooooooooooo Cougars.
    I LOVE that shirt on her. It's so cute and very flattering.
