I can not believe my baby started preschool today! I know parents always say... it seems like yesterday we drove 15 mph home from the hospital with him but it is so true! Brayden was so excited and I hate to admit it but was NOT SAD AT ALL when I left his classroom! He did ask me this morning if I would set the timer so I would remember to come get him from school!! Brayden is going to Discover Corner Preschool in our neighborhood and Miss Dawn is his 1st teacher. I love her theory on learning.... "Play is a Child's Work"! We are looking forward to a fun year! And I think Jack is excited to have some one on one time with mom... I know mom is!!!

The Tannahill's have successfully grown our 1st GARDEN!! I absolutely love the feeling of being able to grow food for my family! We have loved watching our garden grow. We planted zucchini, squash, corn, pumpkins, watermelons and a few sunflowers! We are so excited, we officially have 3 pumpkins growing and will hopefully be big and orange just in time for Halloween!! Brayden is definitely learning the meaning of patients waiting for the vegetables to be ripe enough to pick!

I promise to only preach for a min..... our church has repeatedly told us of the importance of being prepared! To be able to provide for our families and be self-reliant in case of an emergency. Ezra Taft Benson (1899–1994) Thirteenth President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints said, “The revelation to store food may be as essential to our temporal salvation today as boarding the ark was to the people in the days of Noah”. I don't know about You but the is enough for me to go out and get my year supply of food storage TODAY!

Girls Weekend in DENVER!!

This past weekend, I had a "GIRLS GETAWAY" in Denver! I flew into Colorado on Thursday and met up with 2 of my best girlfriends Desiree and Micah! We have been best friends since 4th GRADE and try and get together at least once a year! It was just what I needed..... a weekend of laughing, sushi, mini bowling, samples at Whole Foods, shopping, 16th Street Mall and old friends! Thanks for the weekend girls.... Love you both!

Puppy LOVE!!!

We are excited for our newest family member to make her BLOG debut!! Her name is EMERY! Our good friends, the Jeff's (from "Emery" County) made Brayden's summer when they gave us one of their puppies! I definitely took some convincing but as soon as Jeremy told me she doesn't shed.... I was sold!! We are loving having her and Brayden has not left the backyard for days!!!
