My New Baby Granddaughter, Autumn Kay Drew.

How does ones birthday get better?

When you get to hold a brand new baby in your arms and that baby is your granddaughter.

Autumn Kay Drew was born on November 19th at 8:20pm, weighing 6lbs 14oz and sporting a mop of dark hair! 
She was born at Alta View Hospital to my son Bradley Drew and his girlfriend, Breanna Lewis.

Seren, Carys and I went to see baby Autumn the day after she came into this world.

Holding such a delicate little bundle in my arms was the best gift and brought back plenty of memories of when I gave birth to all of my 7 children! How time flies.

Last night Nov 24th Brad, Bree and baby Autumn stopped by for a visit

Seren loves to sings and took no time in trying to comfort Autumn.

Just adorable x


Another Year Older.

When does having a birthday become a dread?
When you know your getting older and the excitement one has as a child the night before and when you wake up on your birthday expires when you pass age 30. 

The years creep up on you and before you know it,  your not looking forward to the special day.
If your like me, you even conjure up amazing gifts you only dream of. And you find yourself having to give a list of what you would like. 

Sometimes that list you gave gets some gifts checked off, other times no.

This year, with  money tight as we are saving every spare penny for our down payment for our new home. So, gifts from hubby are on the sparse side. But I did get plenty of gifts actually.

I did get some great Dvd sets:
Blade 4 movie set - from my hubby
Lethal Weapon 4 movie set - from my daughter Jade
The Mummy Trilogy - From money I got from my mother in law
A gift card from brother in law which I purchased two writing books and the Dvd movie,
Also from my daughter Jade I got a great gift. Knowing how much I like the Actor 
Tom Hiddleston she got me a journal with  quotes by Tom inside! Sweet gift I must say :)

Then my hubby and kids went our for dinner to 
Red Robin restaurant 

Then we came home and enjoyed cheesecake for my dessert and watched the first installment of Back to The Future - which the girls loved.

Halloween 2015

I seem to be catching up these days with my blogging! Last weekend was the day in which we don our most scariest or cutest costumes we can get and we celebrate All Hallows Eve - Halloween.

For us the weekend of festivities started on Thursday in which we had our church ward Halloween party.

Yes! I did dress up! 
The hat I made for my last wards Relief Society's T- Party.
All I did for to change up the hat was add a few Halloween colors and a couple of bats!

 Friday then was Seren's school Halloween  parade, followed by going to Jason's works trick and treat at his work place. 


Paisley is my 2nd granddaughter
Carys is my 7th child and  number 6 daughter!

Then came Saturday and we spent the day out and about and at a Kmart the girls saw a fire engine and quickly wanted a picture only to be surprised when a fire fighter climbed out of the engine and asked if they'd like to sit in the front seat! That made their day.

The the day turned into the night in which millions of children and adults that accompany them as they walk for hours trick or treating their neighborhoods. Then return cold and aching feet but with filled baskets of sweets and chocolate to eat!

Crimson Peak

This last Friday, my daughter Jade and I went to see the new 

If you love Gothic romance then you'll enjoy this, but we warned it has ghosts in it. Not quite the Casper the friendly ghost type, but some scary ones. 

The set design which was bewitching to say the least and costumes were made with such fine detail and if like me your an artist and love all things creative, this movie is a must! 

While recently watching or should I say swooning over Tom Hiddleston in an interview with Huffington Post in which it the question was asked about the set of the house and if it was still standing. It is not, it has been taken down! Shame I'd pay to walk around that set for sure - especially if I had Tom Hiddleston on my arm! :)

I will say though I look forward to Tom's new movie in which he plays the role of Hank Williams.

I did a blogpost a while back that Tom Hiddleston can cure depression, click HERE 
 I'm sure you'll agree with me.
Tom Hiddleston 
can most certainly put a smile on your face when you watch him do his snake his hips. Tom is an all rounder he acts, does incredible voices of other people even Kermit the frog! He makes you side for him when he plays the mischievous Loki, or simply makes you fall in love with that smile and those blue eyes and now he sings too!

Not Forgotten!

Hiya you all's. 

I have let my blog go of late :(  I will condense the last few months into one post, that way you won't have to read too much :)

I have been busy with packing and moving from Wisconsin back to Utah :)

 Jason finished his Master with a Thesis in Computer Science and we are now residing until March in Adagio apartments in Draper, Utah. 

Can I say how wonderful it is to be back in Utah, close to two of my older kids :) 

                                                                 IT'S WONDERFUL!

Plus, having a place that is bigger than 600 sq ft! Even though this place isn't huge, it seems like a mansion in comparison and with two bathrooms! Heaven :)

We moved back with just a week before my 15 year old daughter, Ashton flew back to Wales with her dad. It was a sweet moment when I surprised her and her sister in Cafe Rio. Tears were shed and plenty of hugs shared :) Time went to quickly but we valued each moment spent together. 

                            We visited the Aquarium

Me, Ashton and Jade

                                     LOTS OF SELFIES

                        ASHTON, BRADLEY AND ME

Then we celebrated Brad's 20th birthday!

Time has flown by and Seren is in kindergarten too!


We also have had fun shopping.
Check out my new hat!

These past few months have sped and it's the month of trick or treating too! 

Fingers crossed I won't let my blog get forgotten too much :)
