Protect Our Food - Call to Action

Last week a bill was passed in the Senate called S.510 FDA Food Safety Modernization Act. This bill increases the power of how the FDA can regulate our food to an extreme.

As a mother, local organic food and sustainable agriculture advocate, this bill, if made into law will greatly change our options of food for our families. If passed, the bill allows the FDA to regulate HOW we farm our food and could deem some organic farming methods as "unsafe" and would outlaw them. They could even go as far as making genetically modified seed the only safe and lawful way to grow. That is how vague and broad this bill is and that is only a small part of the bill. The list of offensive authority that could be given to the FDA is long.

Please take action!

The Citizens.org site has made it easy to send a letter to your Representative in your area. Please take the time and let your Representative know that you disapprove this bill and will not support them voting for it.

"If people let the government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny."

Baby is Growing

Such cute girls.

My little Anna is growing fast and can now ride on Grandpa's horse. She can also say, "All done!" after eating and climb up and down the stairs. Great!

She still won't say mama, let alone any, 'mmmmm' sounds though. Argh!

Aubrey's, Whoa Whoa, I mean Snow White's play by play

Ahh, that was her first day guys.

No added coaching and no one going before her. Everyone busted out laughing. It was hilarious.

Can't wait for the rest of the ballet season.

Nora's Paint Party

This was the most laid back party that I have put on yet. I'm still trying to figure out why. Possibly because we had just come off of Aubrey's party of 10 kids under the age of 3. Whatever it was we had fun, ate cake, and best of all painted. Even I got to paint those cute little faces!

Pictures are in no particular order.

Darci's Baby Shower Brunch

My friend Darci is having a baby next week and I am so excited! It will be her first and a girl.

I know this is late coming but a few weeks ago my friend Mollie and I threw a baby shower for her. We did a brunch and it turned out so cute so I had to post pictures. Darci's nursery theme has to do with birds and it inspired us to do the same for the shower. The invites were done by my talented sister Darleen but I don't have the picture for it.

Here is how the shower turned out though.

Upon arriving, guests were to write their addresses on an envelope for a door prize. Mollie made up the cute poem.

The shower was held in Mollie's home. It was a perfect setting. Love how bright her home is.

We played gift bingo and had these fun prizes for the winners.

Mommy-to-be! Cutest pregnant lady ever. So jealous.

Nora's First Day of Kindergarten

This is late coming.
I can't believe we have a child in school already! She loved it and still does. I hope that lasts for 13 more years!

Family in Town

My brother got married back in June to the beatiful babe on the left in the first pic. Everyone came into town and we had lots of fun eating out, shopping, going to Disneyland, Cinderella play, pedicures, swimming, and lots of Yogurtland. Love family!

July 4th Parade - A First For Them

They had never seen one. It was so fun to see their excitement.

Took me back to watching the Labor day parade in Payson UT growing up.

Not Long Enough San Diego

After Disneyland we had to make a stop south of that to one of our favorite vactioning towns. You'd think we love going just for the beach, ocean breeze, and Balboa park but our favorite part to San Diego is - the Jensens. Spencer's aunt and uncle our the warmest welcoming and accommodating people I know.

Wish I had some pictures to show them off! Here are some of the girls instead.

Magical Kingdom

I really thought it was going to be crazy and frustrating waiting in lines - it wasn't. Does Disneyland get better with age? It has with me. They really know how to use that magic.
