Envelope System?

Is it smart? or just SAD that I listen to Dave Ramsey while the babies nap?

Im wondering if any of those mommy bloggers out there use the cash envelope system? How does it work for you?

I WANT to be frugal!!!!! I really really do. So, as we come close to buying, closing on a house that we absolutely LOVE, I want to do everything that I can to make the finances much easier. Plus, save extra for traveling to see my wonderful family, that I miss so much :) do you do it?

Just lead the horse to water...and it doesn't matter HOW he drinks!

I found this hilarious picture!

Baylon Brooks

Sweet little Baylon Brooks Cundall is now 4 days old! He was born 6/19, weighing 8lbs 8oz and 21 in. long. Josh, Ellen, Quiana & Trapper are all soo in love with him I'm sure...and we can't wait to meet him as well!! Congratulations guys, we love each and every one of you!!

*sigh* Isn't he so cute?
I think he looks a lot like Quiana's baby pictures, especially here.
A certain lucky grandma gets to see him this week.... :)

Grandpa and Grandma came out for Ronan, and we LOVED seeing them. Coy was pretty shy towards Grandpa Bob, but Im almost positive that in a few years him and G.Bob will be huge pals out in the fishing row boat on Becca Lake.

I tell Logan he's a good singer (haha), is the grill master (he totally doesn't grill...I DO), and that he's the best daddy ever (this part is soooo true!)

It was a happy fathers day indeed yesterday!

We stayed at Joan and Lyle's (our elders) for lunch like we usually do on Sundays, except since it's joans birthday today, she didn't have to cook one single thing! :) i made green bean casserole and brought french loaves, mary made pot roast and sr.cream chocolate cake (sooo yumm) and marlene brought jello salad and cabbage and onions. It was delicious for sure!

After lunch, we drove to Anaconda, where we got to not only celebrate fathers day, but JACI'S 2nd BIRTHDAY with Adrian and Anna and the kids! The company is fun, and the kids get to play together. And...i just LOVE seeing little Aaron's smile...which aren't hard to come by at all ;)

aunt "sanday"

sandy and leilani price came over from ronan preps saturday night! coy loves aunt "sanday"! this morning when i asked him where sandy went, he started oinking...remembering that she took him to see the pigs yesterday down at colemans. i laughed..asked him again, and his face dropped and said "gone". :( he smiled again though, when i told him we'd see her again tomorrow night.

we got to hear some wonderful piano playing. with a slight accompaniment too.

the Ruff life

it's been a ruff life for this little blue woofer lately.

he was most recently coloured on.

Sunday we visited Logan's grandparents, and Uncle Kens graves, and gently sat flowers atop them. (Henry was in WWII, and Ken in Vietnam) There's a serene quietness at the cemetary, in which allowed us to pay our respects to these great people. I never got to meet any of them, but I KNOW, even without ever meeting them, that they were loving, grounded people, making deep impressions on others lives.

This was just taken with a cell phone, so not great quality. But I love how little respectful Coy took off, and carried his hat the whole time :)

I hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend!
