Chelsea and Josh

Here are the two kids I met while waiting in line for four hours on Thursday to get tickets to see the Foxboro Hot Tubs in concert that night. The Foxboro Hot Tubs are essentially, Green Day, with my cousin, Billie Joe Armstrong, as the lead singer. Click here to read more about our adventures. Chelsea and Josh were so polite and gracious.
Here's the line we waited in all day. It was hot and muggy outside.
Here's the front of the line. I ended up getting two parking tickets for $15 each!
Here's the tour bus. Everyone was all excited when they pulled in at three in the afternoon.
Here are my guests, the night after the concert. They enjoyed the cool breeze and their strawberry shortcakes before leaving.
Here's what Chelsea wrote in our guest book. "Thank you so much for your hospitality!!! Y'all opened up your house for us and treated us as y'alls own. This trip wouldn't have been as nice as it was. You will always be in our memories and stories. Thank you again so much." --Chelsea and Josh

okay - that is just too fun! I like what she wrote about you being part of their lifetime story. BTW, I love your porch chairs!
You are pretty much the nicest person ever. I'm sure everyone else in line was a little jealous they were not closer to you!! Did you happen to slip a Book of Mormon into their bags as well?!!!

they were so sweet, and such a sweet little couple. When I first saw them walk in the door, I thought that they were my age almost. =]
That was a sweet thing to write.

YOu have a guest book? Wow. That has never occurred to me. Mostly because we never have guests!

Book of Mormon Stories Pool Party!

Hopefully this title, Book of Mormon Stories Pool Party, does not sound irreverent, because as an Activity Days leader, I felt compelled to come up with a fun end-of-the-summer event that is also uplifting, and after all, who doesn't love a splash in the pool on a hot day in August?  My current church calling, or official role that I volunteer for, allows me to plan two activities each month for girls ages 8 to 11, that will encourage them to learn and live the gospel, serve others, and use the talents Heavenly Father has given them, to learn to do many good things.  This year's seminary course of study for high school students is The Book of Mormon, and since I am a huge fan of this inspired book of scripture, I came up with this idea to have each girl show up to my house with a written summary of one of her favorite stories from within its many pages, and share it with the rest of the girls, while outside in our swimsuits near our backyard swimming pool!  As each girl shares…

Buttery Pie Crust

Pie crust 101
Get a cold stick of butter, cut it into sixteen pieces. Put some ice cubes into a measuring cup with water to get it cold. Measure 1-1/4 cups flour and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Remove ice cubes (and excess water) to measure to 1/4 cup ice cold water. Add butter, flour, and salt into food processor and pulse until it is all mixed into fine, crumbled, and loose pieces. Slowly pour the cold water in until it turns into a big ball. Take it all out and put into a gallon sized zippered plastic bag, pressing dough to form a thick, slightly flattened disc, that will be rolled out later. Refrigerate for approximately an hour. I like to use a mat for rolling out my pie dough, although I have made a ton of pie crusts directly on a clean and floured countertop surface.
Sprinkle flour over the surface, and take the chilled dough from the refrigerator and place in the center of floured surface.
Add additional flour to the top of the dough.
Press the dough down to flatten it a bit before usin…

Class of 2030 first day of school

First day of kindergarten was a huge hit!
The only thing that went wrong, other than arriving to school a few hours late due to our flight from Denver and no sleep the night before from seeing the 2017 American solar eclipse in Casper, Wyoming, was losing two small, black buttons from his brand new blue and gray plaid Hurley shirt.
My little boy started kindergarten and I'm so excited for the freedom it will give me while he's away at school, but especially I'm glad for the fun times he will have in learning and being with new friends.  He was so ready and excited!  I didn't know any of the kindergarten teachers at the school, but after meeting Mrs. C, I'm so glad we got her!  Her body language and introduction to Isaac were so sweet and made him feel safe, loved and welcome.
I ordered this fun and festive balloon from ATXBubbles and they delivered it to our front door.  Isaac loved his after school surprise.
He picked out this backpack because the inside says &quo…
