April Little Things

I made a poster for Taz to ask Lyric to prom with. It was the star one. I got his approval before starting.
I bought and put this flower mix in my outside pot.  It was so pretty.  Too bad I don't have much luck in this pot and the prettiness only lasted a few weeks.
Garry started having a lot of problems with his Civic.  It is a 1994 car and we were/are determined to drive it to the ground.  But he thinks he solved the problem and bought and changed out the radiator.
I enjoyed a beautiful evening outside and Bentley joined me.  He isn't very good at taking selfies with me.
We had ribs for Easter and gave Bentley a bone to work on.  He loved it, but about two months later, I found the bone hidden in my bedroom!!
We made it a family affair plus Lyric to go see Batman Vs. Superman.  Garry and Cynjyn wore appropriate shirts for the event. 
Talon and Mikel almost hubby and wife.
Our semi annual coin rolling during conference.
FHE treats (chocolate covered strawberries) and movie treats (goldfish).  We have kind of started a tradition of watching a movie together on Sunday nights.
The poster for prom invite and set up at Lyric's house.
Taz having to get shots for his mission physical
plus having bloodwork to make sure he's healthy almost did him in!!  He does not like that bloodwork, but he survived and is healthy enough to serve.
Cynjyn got a text from Amelia around 10:30 pm that said a house in our neighborhood looked like it was on fire. Garry, Cynj and I went to investigate and sure enough it was.  There were about 8 fire trucks trying to contain it and we along with a slew of neighbors watched them at work.  It was pretty scary and so weird.  I feel so bad for the owners of the house yet so grateful that it didn't hurt anyone around it and no one was home and got hurt. 

I took Norma and Cynjyn to Town Square so Norma could buy some makeup.  They are so cute.
Garry has been wanting to try the 3x3 at In and Out for awhile now.  He finally got his wish and loved every bite.
Cynjyn went on her 4th year overnighter.  She was very mad at me for making her go because she was missing Ethan Hopkin's wedding, but she went...just her and Amelia from our ward.  They were supposed to pass off astrology, but it was a cloudy overcast night and they couldn't see any stars.
We had some crazy windy weather and our grapevine blew completely down and into the Jacuzzi.
I did a lot of prep for the reception.  Here I am staining crates.
Taz and Tanner's wedding shoes came in and they along with Garry bought matching suits to wear to the reception.

I loved wearing my new hair pin from China town. 

Cynjyn got her dance team stuff and did a little fashion show for us.
FHE out by the fire pit making S'Mores.
Cynjyn got her nails done for the wedding.
Taz made prom court along with two of his best friends..Lawson and Andrew.  Taz was not a happy wearer of the sash and was super glad Andrew won. 

The court had to do a little relay at the prom assembly and of course Taz and his partner Katie Lee won.

March Little Things

I've decided to call my catch up posts "Little Things" These are just the little ordinary events that happened that particular month that I want to remember.

Taz had his two favorites for dinner one night, pizza and vanilla ice cream with raspberries.  He had a bite in each hand and was alternating...Cynjyn and I were cracking up over it all.

 A beautiful reminder of a beautiful friendship.  Toni gave this to me last year for my birthday and it was blooming this year and immediately put a smile on my face.
Cynjyn's a book cover for a book she had to read for outside reading in English.
She was the first one to learn on that new sewing machine we got resulting from our night at YW in February.
Garry drained and cleaned the pool in preparation for converting it to salt water.  Cynjyn is trying to get Bentley to come into the pool with her.
He is having nothing to do with it.
Garry cleaning
and converting.

The final touch was adding the salt.
I had to sub in Cynjyn's Sunday School class and I enlisted her and Becca to help me with the attention grabber opening which was solving puzzles.  They sent a good chunk of the day helping out. 

 Becca spent the night and went to church with us the next day and did Cynjyn's hair because I certainly can't do that fancy stuff. 
 Bentley and Tanner having a show down at the dinner table.  We were all wondering how he got up there because he just suddenly appeared by Tanner.
 Mikel was doing some sanding off of an ebony stain and came in with a dirty face.
 Taz and Cynjyn ready for church because they are just so darn cute.
 Stake Relief Society Birthday Dinner with Joann and Sheila.
 Tanner, hot and tire after a long day at work..found him with cooling rags and on the tile to cool off.
 A lot of volleyball this month
 Taz and Lawson making an epic bacon weave for Young Men's.
 We bought Taz's saxophone section basket at the band silent auction.  Taz was mad because he said if he knew we were going to bid on it he would have put better movies in it. 
 Taz just randomly telling me about his day chillaxing on the couch while doing so.
 Cynjyn and I getting shamrock shakes for St. Patrick's day.  We went to Jack in the Box and ordered them and they had no idea what I was talking about...oops...wrong place, so we scurried off to Mc Donalds and got them.
 Then we had Shepherd's Pie and asparagus for St. P dinner.
 Cynjyn tried out and made varsity dance team...only 2 freshman made it...over 60 girls tried out...they only took 19 for the team...she/we were pretty proud and excited for her.  She's wanted to be on SHS dance team since like 2nd grade.
 I made Talon and Mikel's wedding announcements for the reception.
 Cynjyn, Becca and Norma hanging out and going to dinner.
 Taz and Lyric got fill any size bucket slurpees at 7-11 before rock climbing one day and Taz texted me this photo knowing I'd want a photo of it.
 Me, Cynjyn and Garry went to 10 Cloverfield Lane.
 Taz had a great group of friends that supported him at his volleyball games.  Elizabeth was the yearbook photo taker, so Taz got featured on the volleyball page!
