Happy Birthday Dad!!

It was my daddy's birthday on the 20th.
I just wanted to let him know how much I love 
and appreciate him. He is the greatest dad and
the best papa to my girls.
I admire him so much, and like I have said before
he is definitely one of my heroes!!!
Thank you for always sticking by my side
and giving me the courage to be a better and
stronger person. I don't know where I would
be I did not have your support.
I love you dad!!!
Happy Birthday!!!

A Lot To Be Thankful For.....

I know a lot of times I write the things that I am thankful for, 
but with it being Thanksgiving I just have too. 
First I am thankful for my family for the love they 
give me each and every day. I am thankful for my 
husband that works hard for our little family. 
I am thankful for the butterflies I still get in my stomach 
just like I did on our first date. 
They confirm to me each time, how madly in love I am with him.
I am thankful for my three little monkeys....
where would I be without them? 
I am so thankful for T and for the wonderful 
compassionate little girl she is. 
I still melt when she looks at me with her big brown eyes. 
Her teacher at parent teacher conferences kept saying 
how much she loves her. How she is always willing 
to help others, and she is the type of child teachers 
wish they could have 30 of them. She is wonderful, 
and I tell her every day when I give her a big hug and kiss. 
Love you T!
My ShannyShanny. She has a heart of gold. 
Unlike Tilisa and Ana Shannan keeps to herself a lot 
and is very soft spoken. She comes and hugs made probably 
twenty times a day and every time says, "I love you Mommy." 
When she says that I don't care that she is lazy and never wants 
to help with any of the chores around the house, 
although she has started to like vacuuming
I just have to talk her into actually picking the big 
things off the floor.
She will always be my Little Shanny.....Love You!
Finally my little Ana. She is a Little firecracker! 
I have never met a little girl with so much spunk, 
so much personality. She goes non stop from the 
time she wakes up, until she finally falls asleep. 
I wish I had her energy. 
She still calls me mama, which I have to say I love. 
She is my baby and I cannot believe she is almost four...
where does the time go?
I will Love you always Ana Finau!

As a mom my greatest hope is that my girls
will grow to be good people. I feel like
they are on the right track, and I am so thankful 
for that.
I also want to say how thankful I am for my parents. 
I could have never asked for greater parents. 
They have always loved and supported me my whole life. 
Growing up at my dance competitions I think my parents 
were the loudest cheering me on. 
They always have been my biggest supporters. 
They have always shown me by example the type of love that 
I wanted in my own marriage. 
It's hard with the different health problems my mom 
has had having them so far away. 
My mom suffers from seizures and sometimes she forgets things. 
Just today she called me and asked if I was her friend. 
I knew that she had a seizure and I asked if she wanted me to 
call someone to come and help her, 
she asked who I would call. 
I told her I would call Cliff. She acted very shy 
and said I don't want him to see me like this. 
I laughed and said I think it will be okay. 
She said I think he likes me, but I don't 
think my mom and dad do. 
I reassured her that her parents would love him 
and then I asked if she liked him. 
A whole bunch she said.  When he kissed me the first time 
I could not eat for three days, and my mom embarrassed me. 
I asked how? She turned the front porch  light on and off, 
on and off until I came in the house. LOL
I was still on the phone when her Cliffy B came to check on her. 
I don't know how he does it. 
He truly is my super hero. 
My whole life I have never heard my dad complain. 
He has always just done what he is suppose to do, 
and taking care of my mom has always been his highest priority. 
I am thankful for them and there example.

I am thankful for my brother and sisters. 
I want them to know how much I love them. 
I have the greatest family. I will always cherish the 
times we spend together. 
I feel so blessed to have such a wonderful family. 
Love You Punks!!!
I am thankful for my loving Savior Jesus Christ 
and for the strength he gives each and every day. 
I am thankful for the trials in my life that have made me a 
stronger and better person. I am
glad He is always there for me day or night,
rain or shine.
Thank you for always being
there to take me by the hand
and help me along the way.
I am thankful for all He has given me.

I am thankful for my friends and for 
there concerns 
and willingness to listen when 
I just need to talk. 

I wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving, 
and know that I am thankful for each and everyone of you!

Much love,

Busy with salt dough!!

I have been meaning to post all weekend, but I have been busy!
I got the idea of salt dough ornaments from Cathy at Cobblestone Farms.
So I took the idea and ran with it....this is what I have come up with!
I love the way they have turned out. I love snowman.
These would make a great inexpensive gift for a teacher, friend, neighbor, etc.
Let me know if you would be interested in some, 
I have many waiting to get personalized just
for you. Obviously I have other colors than what is
seen, and I also have stars. I will post those later today!
I also have the bigger snowman with ear muffs. 
The flower snowman is for all of you that wish you 
were on a warm beach somewhere!!!
Happy Holidays!!!!

We missed You Guys!

This past Sunday we had Thankgiving dinner early. 
We did because my parents were here, and were 
not going to be able to be here for Thanksgiving. 
It was nice and I will post more on it later, 
but my brother and his family were missing. 
They were not able to come down from Casper.
Jayson, Ale and little Sophia we missed you and 
can't wait until Christmas!
My brother and I were always the 
greatest friends growing up. 
I love and miss him so much. 
I will always cherish the memories I have 
of my childhood having the 
best brother in the world!
I love you Jays!

Have a great One!

Only a face a mother could love.......

Obviously I am not speaking of my children.
I am speaking about this little guy...more on him later.
I have not really updated so these are the
happenings around the Fonua Household!
This sexy guy had a birthday!
Happy B-day Hun!
We received a little snow.
The girls were ready to throw on there
snow suits and build a snowman.
Instead they snuck out of the house, ate some snow
and took pictures as evidence....BUSTED!!
This cute little girl went back on track.
She was so ready. She could not wait to go back and
be with her teacher and friends. T loves school.
Last week she was begging for a work book from
Sam's Club so she could work on her math,
English, and problem solving skills.
I hope she always is this excited about school.
She really is my little smarty pants.
She enjoys learning about the
planets, animals, and wants to be a
doctor someday!
Well since she went back to school Shanny
and Ana have rule over the house once again.
They love lining the kitchen chairs up in the living
room and play choo-choo train.
Here again they documented what they had done.
Here is Ana jumping from the couch to the chairs.
She is my little monkey.
Ana must have taken this picture of Shanny.
She likes rolling up in the rug in the living room.
Then she pretends she is a big snake... I think
she looks like a cute girl hanging out of a rug!!!
Tilisa often looks at the blogs I visit,
she thinks I need to start taking pictures of the
food we eat like Pioneer Woman.
Well T this is for you.
That night we were eating a chicken/stuffing
casserole, peas, fresh pineapple and of
coarse pink lemonade!
Ana thought she was funny putting her
foot on the table.
She really is a little trouble maker!!!
My cute little Ana...
she must be thinking of something
mischievous to do.
Now to this little guy.
My mom and dad went this past week
to Jamaica so they asked the girls to watch
there dog "Sparky."
He has grown on us. We love him.
It's so fun watching the girls taking him
outside, feeding him,
loving him, and snuggling with him at night.
Have you ever heard a dog snore?
Well he does, real loud!
They love him so much.
He has probably been stressed all
week being around three giggling, goofy girls!
We will miss you Sparky!
Thanks Papa and grandma
for letting him stay with us!

As you can see we had a fun week.
I love my family, I am so thankful for them.
Until next time..Have a GREAT day!
