My Grandpa Gerrard



My grandpa was a kind man. I don't think i have ever seen him angry. He was a teaser, loved to tease the grandkids. He loved camping, fishing, the great outdoors and hunting. My favorite memories of my grandpa were...


* He would do the belly dance.

* Sing a little jingle whenever i walked in the room.

* Dance with my dog Shelby when he would go out to my dad's house.

* Just the love filled the room when he was around.


I miss my grandpa he passed away just in July. He had sparkles in his eyes so he must have been a angel. (Chiara says). May we meet again.


Love Susie

A Little Scared Mother Bear











I was a little scared, Bailee in Moab without Mom. She went to Moab with her daddy, Bubba, Uncle Eric, Reily, and friends. I had to cut the cord that weekend. Chiara and I had a Girl Scout event to attend that weekend so i told Jesse he had to take Bailee and I would take Jimmy.








Bailee had such a blast in Moab, I was proud of her. She went down rocks like they were slides. Weeeeeeee... she wore a pair of shorts out in the rear. Her and her Bubba found lizards. I believe she had a blast. She came home in a red dirt shirt, a smile, and red dirt everywhere you can imagine.

For a good cause.





We all went to the hair cutting place together. But only three of us got hair cuts.



I talked Chiara into cutting her hair cause it will be so easy to take care of it during all of the GS camps she is going to be doing this summer. I was so very proud of her. He donated it to two different organizations. She also donated it in the rememberance of her Aunt Shannon and her Grandpa Gerrard, they both passed away with cancer.

Thank the heavens now she's seven











Oh Chiara, I can remember the first thing the doctor said when you came into this world, "She's sunny side up. It is unusual for babies to be born face up."














We have had a wonderful seven years so far. Let's make more years to come beautiful and amazing.

Camping Memorial Weekend




I wanted to go camping for Memorial day weekend. By golly I did. I figured it would be in remembrance of my dad. He would probably be camping if he was here or in Wendover. Well I can't take the kids to Wendover. So we decided to go camping.

Where to Go?














Willard? Pineview? Locomotive Springs? Well we decided to go to Echo. There was one spot opened for the weekend. We packed up the kids and headed to Echo with the trailer.



The first night, was kinda hectic. Babies wouldn't sleep. Rain was pouring outside. Arguments began in the middle of the night. I love this one, "this is ridiculous...we should pack up right now and go home." The response was, " there is the car, go ahead and pick me up on Monday."

We made it through the night. We woke up to a little bit of snow on the little hills by us. The kids were well rested. We had a good time. Even if all six of us and the dog were trapped in the camper cause of the rain. Jesse Gaige was fishing most of the time. Of course he made friends. It was a great family bonding time.

Boys and Girls





As we were sitting on the porch yesterday Chiara tells Jesse and I, " Bubba needs your help." "Needs help? for what?"





"the love doctor?"





"Hu?"





"He's really likes someone and he needs your help mom. You had dad fall in love with you maybe you can help bubba with his girl that he likes."










Too funny. The LOVE Doctor!!










Kids say the darnest things.





Where did the time go?



You all are probably wondering what... She blogged for a whole month and then nothing? Maybe there is a lot of material being gathered for the next blog days.




True to that i say.





But first of all I wanted to say that the blogging for a month was like having 4 kids all the time. Busy, busy, busy...constantly watching them before they get in trouble.



Let's see what did everyone miss in the month of May?



videoWe have had dancers in the house. ( Love Jimmy, he is so funny).


* Celebrated birthdays

* one year anniversary for my dad


It was kind of a hard month for me. I miss my dad.








*My nephew got baptized.

and the best of all is blogged in another blog :)

Another emergency broadcast breaking through







My poor chicken passed away tonight. I am so sad. :( She was doing so well after the huge dog attack last thursday. But for some reason she didn't make it after 4 days. She had a broken wing, something wrong with her leg, and a huge bald spot. She didn't get huddled down i guess with the other chickens and so she got real cold in the rainstorm. Ohhhhhhh... I curse our neighbors dog. It makes me so mad cause if that stupid dog didn't fight his way into my backyard, my chickens would be fine. It also make me mad that they haven't even came over and apologized about the one that he killed. What rude neighbors.


I will have to go and buy another one for myself. I was so excited when i got her. My friend Renee called it,"Susan." "We actually named it "Baby"cause she was so little. "Nobody puts Baby inthe corner."
