Day 10- Songs I listen to-

Day 10-  Song I listen to when I'm sad,happy, bored, hyped, and mad?

Well, I like all music.  Not rap to much, but all other music.  I don't really have time to play music when I' m feeling these emotions.  My favorite lately is the 24 hour Christmas channel on dish.:)  Tiss' the season.

Day 7- Biggest impact

Day 7, person who has impacted your life?  Well my family, my husband and children.  Just a few days ago we celebrated our 9th anniversary, we are blessed with truly great friends who watched our three small children for us.  I made steak and crab legs, the whole works, all in the comfort of our home.  We snuggled on the couch and watched a movie.  I thought to myself how strange it would be to not have three little blessings in my life.  Sure there wouldn't be endless loads of laundry and dishes, etc.  But the joy that they give me far outweighs the toil of chores.  Like the sweet little comments and snuggles at night, and the soft cheeks for kissing, the sweet snuggle my son gives early in the morning, outstretched arms.  And the list goes on.  On this Thanksgiving Day I'm truly thankful for my Husband and children, may our Lord always bless us.

Day 6- Super Nella

Day 6-My favorite Super Hero?  Super Nella!  Who is she, you ask?  A very special little girl, saving lives by offering us love and understanding of things we sometimes don't quite grasp by ourselves.  Her Mama has a awesome blog I have become an uber fan of.  Her Mama's blog-website is Nella helps us to be thankful for what we have and remember we are more alike than different.  Amen!

Day 2,3,and 4....

Okay, so I'm already behind.  In my defense I have had a very busy weekend.  Friday was Annaliese's barn dance and sleep over.  Saturday we trekked to Boise for the triplets birthday party and Sunday we had Church and a birthday party. Wheew,,,,,,

Day 2.  The meaning behind my blog name.  Just like it says From Diapers to dishes and everything in between.  My days seem to snowball from dishes to diapers to pick up times to play dates to laundry to what ever.  One of the joys of Motherhood, being perpetually busy.....always.  I like being busy though, I seem to not be able to say no.:) 

Day 3.  Photo of me and my friends.

My 2 beautiful friends from High school.  Breanne and Janelle.  Even after ten years we share smiles, tears, and friendship.  Miss you Bre.

Day 4.  My bad habit!  Yuck.  I am a procrastinator!  Full blown, I wish I could change it.  Oh well.

Well tomorrow I will be back on the ball.  Yeah.

Because we all need a little Aloha.....

 Because I feel a vaca is badly in need, I'm blogging about one of my favorites.  Beautiful Kauai.  Need I say more.  Above is the beach in front of our room, yes room not hotel.  It was ours.  People came and went but by 5 in the afternoon it was ours.  Heaven......insert sigh here.
 When 2 Idaho boys arrive on the island.  Hehe   look at Jay's feet.
 Our room was gorgeous!  Tell me, does it not make you want to throw yourself down, arms open like a child?

 My very favorite beach.  It's uninhabited and rural and so Hawaii.  We took a little winding road to get here.  Along the way there was a lady selling coconuts to eat/drink.  This my friends is the beaches of Hannali.  Yep, like the song.  Come on..... Puff the Magic Dragon.  If I was a dragon, I would live here too.
 May I offer you a Mai tie? 
 Sailboats at dusk.....................
Just one of the flowers that help make Hawaii smell amazing.  Well my ode to Kauai must end, but until we meet again.  Aloha....

Candy crusaders!

Hmmmmm......Where do I start.  This year we had Annaliese as Minnie Mouse, Emma as a Tiger, and Cameron as Elmer Fud and (brace yourselves Mark and Meg)a BSU football player.  Let's face it U of I doesn't have a  standing and the costume was free.:) I made a little flag he carried that said "Be very quiet, I'm hunting 'wabbit's!"  I was also duel parts as Snow White and a Kitty Cat.  We had four days of Halloween at our house!  Thursday, my preschoolers dressed up and had our party, Made hot dog mummies and popcornballs.  Friday was Annaliese's school party, we watched How to Train Your Dragon.  Very cute, if you have not seen it, you really must.  I made 30 popcorn balls and handmade her outfit.  Saturday we had a birthday/Halloween party at some friends.  So much fun!  Cute little gobblers ran all over the place.  And yesterday, after a church meeting we carved pumpkins with the kids and went out for The official Candy Crusade.  Needless to say my children now have heaps of candy and other treats from those we love and like wise.  It really was a great Halloween.

Love- Crystal

P.S.  I think popcorn balls should replace jelly beans at Easter.  They are so good to have just once a year.  What do you think?
