my Special Olympian

Tanner is such a supper star!  I love watching him compete in swimming. He won two gold metals at state.

Then a few days later he swam his first Alta High meet his goggles came off and he didn't turn around to go back to the starting point but he got the most cheers of all the kids the teams went wild screaming and clapping and yelling for him both Alta and Bountiful.  I was in tears it was so exciting!  I love when I can witness what a wonderful child he is and how much he touches others lives.  Some times I get so sad that he wont drive or go to collage or live a normal life.  I'm so focused on my little pinpoint of a life I need to pull back and see the whole the picture and just be happy that I have such a great kid who can do so much!
Austin also did well he is such a great swimmer and I love that he takes such great care of Tanner.  What am I going to do when he is on his mission!!!!

Oh and can I just say that after the swim meet we raced off to Austins Choir performance. I love a good concert!! I know he doesn't love that class but I love going to hear him sing!

Happily ever after

Oh  my goodness I don't know how full time working moms do it?   My house looks like a bomb went off I haven't slept in a week (just look at the black circles under my eyes)  and I have gained 3 pounds, cause I'm eating on the run.....  But just look what we did!!!

 I was organizing my friends basement when the call came in, "can you help with the wedding dinner on Wed?"  Ash and I decide to do it together thank goodness we could have never done it alone, ( we also had Kristi decoupaging pumpkins one day). 

I spent my whole weekend away from kids and phones to make the paper wreaths they took about 3 hours for the first 3 or 4 but by the last ones 12-14 I had it down to an hour and a half. It took about 30 hours to do them but look how dang cute they are!!! and I'm going to use them for brys work party (which means I need to make 4 more yikes).

 I  loved being up in park city with my mom and dad this was the view when I woke up and then later that day look at the wreaths piling up. he he he

 It was so fun to work with a master mind of darling deco. Ashley, she is so full of fun darling ideas and I think we had such a good collaboration! 

I loved her candles and my banner was so darling on the wall I draped with burlap.(I wish I could have steamed the creases out)   It was a fun party to plan!  I have to do a shout out to Kristi for getting the food organized and made it was so yummy!  It's so heart warming to see a neighborhood come together to help a good friend in need.  We love you Nelson's!
