As most of you already know, I have started a food blog.  I am super excited about it because 1) I LOVE to cook! 2) I have very stong beliefs that sitting down as a family for supper is one of the most effective ways to stay close as a family and on top of what your kids are up to 3) Cooking for my family makes me proud.  It is one way I show my family I love them and care about them. But I also know how cooking dinner every night gets boring and repetitive when you are making the same things over and over again.  So I want to help make it more exciting for you by giving you all some different ideas.  I will be posting my favorite fun, different, mostly "normal" recipes that I love to make for my family and I want to share them with you.  Here is a link Meal Makin Momma.  Go there and "LIKE" it along with my Meal Makin Momma facebook page.  And PLEASE if you have something delicious that you would like to share, I am ALWAYS up for new ideas.

Guest Chef

As many of you know I LOVE to cook. I LOVE to try new differnt recipes. I love to creat wierd thing and have them turn out DELICIOUS!

Well this Friday I will be a Guest Chef on our local KUTV Channel 2's new daytime segmant Fresh Living... and yes I am SCARED TO DEATH and am now wondering what I got myself into. I keep wondering if I should just call them and tell them I'm not coming, end of story. But I won't! I won't let the fear and shakes take control of me... I WILL DO THIS!

I've been wanting to start a Foodie Blog for a long time to give me a good excuse for making all of this delishious food I have been making (it's getting to a rediculous point).

So just to start out and see how it goes I have created a Facebook page... Its called Meal Makin Momma. Since you are reading this I am assuming you know me in some way so I am asking you to help me out, first by "Liking" my page and second by posting a link on your Facebook wall... That would be SUPER awesome and I would really appriciate it! Here is a link...!/pages/Lehi-UT/Meal-Makin-Momma/160968463938461?v=wall

My dad built this swing for the grandkids. He's the best! When I was little we had one just like it, I have a lot of great memories of it. I was a lot more excited about it than my kids were while he was making it. But now they love it just like I did.

Check out how Steele flys! I know he is whining and I am laughing but I promise he loves it now just like I knew he would... It only took a few trys on the swing till he laughs the whole time.


Brennan LOVES to hold Dax! He has helped me out SO much! There for a few weeks while I was canning he would just come hang out and help with the boys. But anytime he's around Dax is being held. Our kids are super lucky to have such a crazy fun uncle that likes them so much!


Grandpa Wes came to help Steele one night when Dad couldn't get home from work soon enough. We love Grandpa Wes

Steele would ONLY wrestle Garret or Hali

Hali trying to get Steele to Wrestle her at the Torniment...

Painting Pumpkins

Steele & Max had a great time painting pumpkins...

And Dax!

Chuck E Cheese

My parents had a party at Chuck E Cheese for Steele too.

Check out how dang handsome my dad looks! He shaved his mustache off. This is the VERY FIRST TIME I have EVER seen him without it in my entire life. But he sure looks good! I have the best dad EVER!

Steele's THREE

My baby turned THREE September 5th. We had a great party with amazing family and friends!

Kylon, Steele, & Jed plucking the turkey's feathers so we could cook it for the feast.

Jed, Rhett, & Steele trying to light the candles. ( check out the farm cake I made)

Just Me & Jed

Jed and I took the trailer and headed up to the Green River near Kemmer, WY. A bunch of guys from a job he was working on went up there to roast a pig, camp, and fish for a weekend so we left the kiddos and hit the road. On the way there we ran out of fuel! It was great!
The infamous mug...

And a good game of Pass The Crown = Good times.


Theese are not in any kind of order...
We visited the Dinosaur Museum at Thanksgiving Point right before school started with my sister and her girls.

And the Splash Pad in Highland with Calie, Sunny, Peggy and Brennan and the kiddos of course.

This is a Lehi City Firefighter party... The Firefighters spray foam out of their hoses for the kids to play in. There are two different areas on for the big kids and one for the little kids. I was with the Steele and Ryklee and Jed was with Kylie and Remie so I don't have any pictures of Ky and Rem playing.

This is some Crook Neck Squash and Zucchini out of our garden.

Dax bonding with Raz.

Kylie and Remie danced in the A.F. parade.

Steele riding his real wheeler. He ran into the swing set and went up over his handlebars this day and got right back on to ride more.

And then there were three...

DaxTirell Dean was born June 30th instead of July 13th because I was itchy... literally! I still don't quite understand it but my Gal bladder wasn't functioning properly which made my liver not function properly which made be so unbelievably itchy I was about to check myself into a the mental ward. And trust me I tried all the creams, allergy meds, and bath concoctions I could find. Come to find out they weren't working because I was itchy from the inside out. When my awesome doctor got the results of my blood tests back he scheduled a C-Section the next day because it was putting us at risk for a still birth. So Wednesday June 30th at 8:22 AM DaxTirell was born weighing in at a whopping 6 lbs. 4 oz. and and 19 inches long.

...And the itching got worse from the Spinal Block and then finally went away completely that night. Though I did have scratches and scabs all over my head and chest. But look was a handsome little fart he is!
