PostHeaderIcon Sweetener

I found this "job" listing on a mommy blog that I read. This company was looking for women to accept there product and pass it around to other women that they know just so they can get there product noticed, and people to start requesting that it be sold in stores. And they are paying me.

I just want to share this with you all because, i HATE, (yes HATE) artificial sugar. I dont use it. and i use a LOT of sugar in my coffe every morning, which is just waisted calories. And i have really been looking for a "fake" sugar that I like.
IT tasts sweeter than sugar. I love it.
They sent me a ton of samples, and a bag of it to bake with. So this weekend im going to make "sugar" cookies and see how that comes out!

If any of you want to try it, I will get some to you!
( i do not get paid by the number of people who say yes, so do not feel obligated!)

Its also good for people who have diabetes!

OH and steven even liked it....and THAT is saying something!

PostHeaderIcon here she is!

It ended up weighing about 40lbs!

Took me all day, cause i had both the girls to myself that day. If i had had a sitter i could have busted it out in about 4 or 5 hours!

TONS OF FUN. And a girl at the party offered me 300 to make her a similar cake! Im totally doin it!

PostHeaderIcon Brynn Donated her hair to locks of love!

**Warning-this may make you cry a lil mary**

Here she is, all in cute little glory! She has be BEGGING us for months to cut off her hair. Steven kept saying "NO WAY"

Well she finally broke him. He said ok. She could cut it to her shoulders.

So we started to wonder if she had enough hair to donate.

Well she did, IF they went shorter. And by that point Brynn was so excited to donate her hair and she wanted it shorter anyways


literally grabbed and chopped!


No we havnt seen it in person. so im not sure what its going to look like after its wet and curly, but bonnie said in this pic its dried well see!

This is sure going to make some little child a very beautiful wig!

And Little Brynn is so proud to be able to help a sick child. She has such a big heart!

I am going to scrapbook this for her FOR SURE!! Its a big one!

Im so excited to see her tonight and see it in person!

PostHeaderIcon Camping at Sugar Loaf

Steven and his baby...oh i mean bottle! :)
the flames were not shooting towards me like that, steven just doesnt know how to set the shutter speed on my camera!
Uncle Dan fixing Brynns bike
And shes off! (not really she is too short for it and cant peddle it)
Glens Son JR caught brynn a frog, she kept it in a 2litre bottle for a day, but we told her its mom missed him, so she had to leave it there
Brynn And Dylan, They didnt like the smoke from the campfire in there eyes, so brynn found snowboarding goggles in uncle dans truck, and Dylan used beccas sunglasses!
Poor nana....she didnt care too much for camping...she is a more of a hotel kind of girl!
This one on the otherhand would sleep in the dirt if we let her!
and of course here is Chomps, he broke his leash and chased after another dog....then had a "time out" in the pack and play till we fixed up his leash!
