Welcome to my little ol' blog. I'll be upfront about it: I don't blog very often any more. If you found your way here because you read my book "Trailer Life," have a gander! But it's easier to keep up with me on Instagram or on my Facebook page. I have this long, drawn out theory on why I'm a terrible blogger, but that is a story for another day. Enjoy the ramblings of my life from the last 8 years or so.

Oh Christmas tree

I know the pictures are DARK, but I was trying something new, and this is what happened. The picture of the scary ghost Will is cool because of the lights on the tree. I have no idea how that happened- I was in full auto mode on my camera except that I turned off the flash, and this is it. To see the others better, you'll have to click on them to make them bigger.
We got our tree at Michael's, on sale. It is a fake four foot tree, undecorated right now. The kids LOVE it. Will insists it needs a star on top. Ed keeps saying "It's a tree, a tree!" (Think of that short guy on Fantasy Island- It's a plane!) and Kacy sings "Oh Christmas Tree" every hour or so.

Saturday I went to the temple, and the kids stayed with my cousin Caley. They had a great time, and Caley was still standing by the end of the day. We stopped at Claim Jumper to eat, and it was GREAT. I grossed out my family by getting my steak rare, only Kendra and I (Ryan likes it VERY RARE, but he wasn't there) like our steaks that way. It's because you can taste the beef. Any more cooked and it loses taste and texture. My dad said something about getting Mad Cow disease... I don't know about that.

This week is going to be BUSY- I won't bore you with details, but it involves appointments and parties. This is my busiest week of the season. After this, I have nothing going on besides Christmas and a December birthday party.


  1. When I was younger I would always want my meat well-done. Now I order it Medium Rare, I like cooked just a little. Sounds like you had a nice trip. Glad you have a tree up now...good luck with the rest of your shopping we still have the boys, and 2 more people. Eric and I usually buy what we want, and say--you don't have to worry about my Christmas honey...sounds kind of pathetic, but it works for us.

  2. I wish I had some willing cousin for this weekend...we are still trying to figure out arrangements. Tree looks BEAUTIFUL and the star is perfect!

  3. There is SOMETHING about lights on a tree that makes it special, even without ornaments. And I love the star.
