Pictureless Week

My mom had the chance to come up and visit me for a week. I didn't take pictures, although my mom took some so someday you will see them on her blog :) Anyway, she came up Friday and was here for Snowflake's Pioneer Day festivities on the 18th. We skipped on the parade because I wasn't going to be in it this time and instead went to the craft festival; which I have never been to. We saw a lot of cute things but nothing we were willing to buy for the amount of money they were asking for. Then we went out to the car and motorcycle show where David and his brother were this year to advertise and give out prizes to winners. I saw many cool cars and learned a lot about them :) Afterwards my mom and I had lunch and went to the quilt show which was small but fun.

The rest of the week was mainly being bums. She taught me how to make green chili burros, no-bake cookies, and our version of goulash. On Wednesday I finally saw Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (loved it) and we shopped at Walmart. We had a lot of goodies, read many books, and she is knitting me a sweater (her first), and pretty much hung out enjoying each other's company. I really like having my mom visit and this will be an annual event :)

Thanks for everything, Mom!

Fun time for you two. Your mother is very entertaining. What a great mom to share all her talents with you. I am glad to know she has not dropped off the face of the earth. I haven't heard from her.

The prices were pretty crazy at the festival. We wanted to take the kids on the train and it was $5 for a 5 min ride. If they thought people would pay that, they were crazy! Next year we'll stop by the car show to see you guys!
