Visitors and Visitees?

So I am unsure if my title makes sense, but I am hoping it got your attention...
If you don't want to read all of this, just look at the pics and you will get the point:D
We have had a lot of visitors the month of March and we have visited a lot of people as well.
I am the epitome of slacker when it comes to posting pictures. I have a lot of good ones, but they are yet to be uploaded, downloaded, somethin-loaded, to my computer (I am computer dumb!)
Since I work at home from my computer, I really have no desire to be on this thing much longer. A good book is callin my name and so is my bed. So here is the reader's digest version of the month.
1. Bronson came up and saw us in Pocatello. Yes, you read correctly. Someone in my family, other than Jes, came to see me! We grilled burgers and ate like Bennett's do, piglet style!
2. Jes came up that same weekends since Elvin, her hubby, had Gaurd in Rexburg. It was fun to have a house full of people. I can't wait till I have a lot of lil' turds runnin around, but thinking of the joys of not can be put off a tad longer.
3. We went to Kemmerer-I think the dude that founded that place can't spell, but who knows, eh? Ben had lab in Rockertown and I stayed at Tif's since it was a pit stop. It was nice to have her babysit while I plunked along on the computer. We had a good time roastin weenies around a campfire and eating some good, too good, dutch oven brownies. I have those pics, but they aren't on my computer just yet. But you shall see them soon enough.
4. We stopped off in E-town on our way back and saw my parents. It is always nice to go home when no one else is there because I am the MAIN ATTRACTION if you know what I mean.
5. We went to Logan and stayed with my Aunt Carrie. That was fun! Ben and I loved playin with the kids and the animals. They have a Wii, horses, goats, pretty much anything to keep you entertained. Carrie made me the most adorable piece of jewlery. I am going to have to post it. My aunt makes the most amazing jewlery.
6. I stopped off in Hyrum and saw my Grandma and Grandpa Anderson. I have to say it was really cool. Grandpa had some neat stories to tell. My dear gramps has seen a lot since he is 98.

7. We went to Stu and Mili's for his Birthday. Dauni came over too. It was really fun to spend time with them. I just love Mili and Stu. Such good friends and in-laws. I must say Dauni is such a fun mom-in-law! We could talk for hours if we wanted!

8. Our last stop was Jes's. I wanted to stay longer, but Charly was in no way having it! What a grump! When she gets tired or hungry, look out! She gets that from me...

This pic is too good, what a doll!

Well, we are 2/3 on Temple Attendance. That is good for us...
That day we went was NASTY. It was fun though. Dauni watches the gremlin for us. Like I said, good ma in law.
Bronson wore Charly out...
If you haven't caught on that I love tub time, you don't check out the blog nearly enough!
I am not sure if I posted this one already, but shoot...I like it so I will post it twice!
This is Jes and Elvin
Here is B and Charly. I like his hat so that is why I chose this one. Plus, I hate his hair when it is not styled! I am picky.
Finally, Bronson is not afraid to touch her!
So that is Jes, not me if the whole brown threw you off. Jes goes dark for the winter, kinda like birds going south...same scenario.
Now I know why my ma has a butt shot of me. Baby butts are cute! Don't worry, I don't leave her unattended ever since she has no idea that water and air don't jive!
Oh the Dodge. I love our truck. We don't get to drive it enough. Heck, Charly has drove it more than I have this year. Stick shift and all...that's my girl!

Keep tuned in, I will post more pictures soon!

Just a number, right?

Charly says Happy Birthday too, in so many words....

I am wishing a Happy Birthday to my sister, Jescee.

Jes, I have to make this quick since the other half needs the computer. How do you make something like this quick I am yet to find out. ANYWAY, I hope you have a fantastic birthday. Salute your 20s and say hello to your 30s!
Thank you so much for all of your strength. You are for sure, no kidding, serious as a door knob, my best friend. Thank you, thank you, thank you for caring about me and being not only a sister, but a therapist, giggler, movie reviewer, life lesson giver, weight counselor, and so, oh so much more. I never thought I would want to talk everyday on the phone and chat about EVERTHING! Life is strange. I now know the Lord sent you to me and you are an answer to many prayers!
Happy Birthday!

Life is one big fat tease aint it?


Living in Pocatello is so very different than Pinedale living. The weather here is mild compared to that ice box. These last few weeks have been so nice. I have been walking Charly almost daily around the loop we live on. Most think I am nuts on those "not-so-great" days. Up there, only one word comes to mind...wind, more wind and lets throw in a frigid to top it off.

So I was really, and I mean really, enjoying the weather...then it snowed! WHAT A TEASE! It just brought back all of these memories in Pinedale and being pregnant. Oh pregnancy!
Whenever I started to enjoy the weather---BAM! It would get nasty, just like recently. I just hate this time of year because Ben and I get serious cabin fever. Thankfully things warmed up today and I got to go out with the fam.

I guess my point is, life is one big fat tease. I am really trying to get used to life teasing me. I don't like being teased. Never have, never will. We as a family are working hard to stay positive and tease back here and there!
I have enclosed the person that makes it so easy to probably will not enjoy these as much as someone who knows his personality. These are only a select few, and I mean SELECT FEW!

He likes himself, and so do I!

You find out who your friends are....

Tiffany Peavler-on left.

I don't know how many of ya's are country listeners, but this is a lyric to a song that reminds me of my friend. That friend is Tiffany Peavler, a.k.a. TIF! The song talks about how you usually find out who you're true friends are when you are in a bind.
Welp, Tif definately fits this song to a T!

I met Tif 3 years ago in Laramie. Her and Ben grew up together. We didn't quite hit it off. I guess you could say I was a psycho hose beast, in the words of Wayne Cambell. All I have to say is I was intimidated by this way cute gal talking to my MAN! Once that issue was over, we were immediate friends.

Tiffany has one huge heart and will do anything for her friends. She has always been there for Ben and I. I can't list all the things she has done. She was there to help us move, she was there when we blessed Charly, she was here this weekend. I really needed her. I have been so stressed with workin from home and bein a mom. She gave me some great tips and I think I got a handle on things. She doesn't even have kids yet and she already knows kids better than most, especially me!

But here is why Tif really fits the song....

Last year Tif drove over a hundred miles one night to get me in Pinedale so I could make it to a Dr.'s appointment in Evanston. Ben was stuck out on his rig working and I had no way of getting to Evanston in time. We called Tif at like 8pm to see if she could come get me, and she did! Good ole Wyoming weather didn't disappoint and we drove home in a white out. I admire her willingness to serve others without thinking, "what's in it for me?"
