Tag…Your It!

Pin It

Thanks Heidi for inviting me to play!!!  I had to smile, this game comes to me on the very day I had a major sit down with all my sweeties about playing tag without tackling, pulling, pushing, and grabbing… luckily this sounds like much more fun!

12 fun facts about me!

1. We have a Yorkie (2 years old) a Morkie (3 months old), and Cocker Spaniel (1 year old). 

2.  I love babies…and since I’m kinda out of the having baby phase, and not quite in the being a grandma phase our puppies are filling the gap! 

3.  I have five kids, who I absolutely adore.  My oldest son left two weeks ago to serve as a missionary for our church in Mexico.  My daughter is a sophomore in high school.  She turns sixteen next month.  She can’t wait to wreck…I mean drive my carSmile  My son is a seventh grader who plays the french horn, with gusto!  Then comes my fifth grader who loves football.  I would really like to buy him a pair of jeans that can withstand more than two weeks of recess.  Last but certainly not least is my nine year old third grader.  She can’t walk without skipping, hopping or dancing. She couldn’t live without singing!!

3.  My sweetie proposed after eleven days.  We were married four months later.  Get this…our parents didn’t freak out!  My children have been warned not to pull this kind of stunt…ever! 

4. I’ve been married to this wonderful man for 21 years!

5. I was reading a website a few weeks back that talked about different names for Grandmas.  So, I picked my grandma name “Grammy” or “Grams”.  My daughter thinks I’m crazy, seeing that it will be quite a few years until I'll need one.

5.  I pick restaurants  based solely on whether or not they serve diet Coke.

6. I collect James Christensen art.  My favorite piece is one called “The Responsible Women”.

8.  I’m actually a huge fan of all things University of Utah!

9.  I have a space ship hanging in my garage.  My husband and kids built it for a Star Wars movie they filmed and animated.  Mr. Shumway does not believe in doing any project half way…see my post about the classroom pet debacle of 2010.
