Endeavour's New Sports Commissioner

We now have a famous daughter! Morgan decided to run for office this year as Sports Commissioner. She did such an awesome job! Her friend Mckenzie was her campaign manager and they passed out tons of stickers. Morgan came up with her own speech and it was pretty cute. She talked about how she would be a great sports commissioner and help make P.E. more fun because her initials were MLB. Major League Baseball. This turned out to be a hit especially with the boys! :) Way to go Morgan!

I Know It's Gross. . .

BUT don't knock until you try it! I've been really sick this past week with all kinds of different stuff. It took me until Firday to realize the ear infection was the kicker and I needed to see a doctor. On Friday morning a friend of mine was telling me about this NeilMeds. Its a sinus rinse. I thought how weird and gross. After going to the doctor, I asked him about this rinse. He told me how he uses it all the time when he gets sick. I had no idea about this undiscovered wonder. He told me he recommends that I use it twice a day until I'm well. He even gave me a free sample. This stuff must really work and now I'm hearing more and more people talk about how great it is.I think this is just hilarious! Well I was to the point were I was so sick I was willing to give anything a try. So when I came home I did just that! All you do is simply fill the bottle with water and add a pH solution to it so it doesn't give you the burn! Then the fun part! You put it up to one nostril and squeeze! The water goes up on one side and and flushes all the junk out on the other nostril! I didn't get a good enough look but I all I could hear were the girls saying, "Oh mom that's gross" so it must of been bad! It worked and it worked rather well! So all of you out there who are battling the cold go ahead and give it a try, you just might like it!
ps. gotta love the add. . . it's as essential as brushing your teeth!

How Cute Are These!

I think any kid would love this! Especially if you turned it into a cookie sucker! I found this on a girls blog who loves to share. I thought I would share it with all of you too!

Pinwheel Cookies
3/4 cup butter, softened

3 ounces cream cheese
1 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon saltassorted colors of paste food coloring
24 lollipop sticks

In a bowl cream butter, cream cheese and sugar until fluffy. Add egg and vanilla; beat until smooth.
In a medium bowl combine flour, baking powder and salt. Add dry ingredients to the creamed mixture. Stir till soft dough forms. Divide dough into fourths. Tint each with a different food color. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill for 2 hours.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Working with half of each color, shape dough into 3/4 inch balls and for each cookie place 1 pink, 1 green, 1 blue and 1 orange ball together to make 1 large ball. Shape into a 12 inch long roll (like a snake), starting at one end, coil roll to make a 2 3/4 inch round cookie. Place cookies 3 inches apart on lightly greased baking sheet. Carefully insert lollipop sticks into bottoms of cookies.
Bake cookies for 8 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool and store in an airtight container

Here It Is. . . .

Our new home! Yes, I know your all sooooo jealous! Things have been rather crazy around here and I just can't seem to get myself to blog these days. Anyways, this is our LITTLE lovely home! It's small and its actually rather nice. Chores are a breeze and I don't have much to keep up on. That is one nice perk of living in an apartment! We still don't know about the home we put an offer on. Word from the wise, don't waste your time with a short sale, its ridiculous! We are still looking for that Beckstrand home and hope to find something soon. Wish us luck! (cause we really need it)
