Babysitting Gracie & the RV show!

This past weekend we were lucky enough to babysit our niece Gracie. Saturday we took her to the RV show at the Expo Center. She had a blast and was in and out of every trailer. She took a catalog out of each one, so she can give it to her daddy when he gets home from his trip! Jane & Gracie have been trying to talk Jeff into buying a trailer for awhile now.
I should have taken more pictures, but I didn't. This is the only one I got of Gracie.
And this would be Riley's new LOVE!!!! As many of you know we have our Redneck Toy Hauler. This is a bigger/better version of ours. It's the first one of it's kind, and Riley spent the majority of the time staring at it, and taking pictures of it. It was really nice, but a little out of our price-range. One day Riley, when you make us our millions you can have your dream trailer!!!

Riley's current project!

We bought this old pool table a couple years ago and it has just been sitting in storage. We finally got the basement cleaned out to wear Riley could work on it, and this is what we have been up to the last little while!
I wish I would have taken more pictures but this is Riley laminating the table. I help when I can, but i don't do much! I did tape all that paper up so he could spray the glue for the laminate.
We are really excited to have this done and be able to play on it!
As you can tell our basement is unfinished. Do you like the green carpet? That's what we took out of the upstairs in the house, when we remodeled it! I'll take more pictures as the project gets closer to finish!!!!

Thorpe Annual Card Night!!!!

This is a little late posting, but I just got these pictures off my camera. A couple weeks ago we got together for card night at Riley's mom & dads. It was a really fun night, with good food, and even better company!!!Riley, Grandma C, Brooks, Chris, Nick, GregRiley, Chris, Brooks, Nick, Greg, Rich, Jantsen & LauraThe kids brought Bailey (Rich & Chris' puppy) in for a little bit, and when it was time to go out she did not want to go! It was really funny to watch!Riley, Grandma C. Jeff, Greg, Rich, Jantsen, & Laura!After the card game was over, Chris brought out the Chocolate Fountain! It was so yummy!
Thanks for a fun night, we're looking forward to the next one! I believe Jeff & Jane are suppose to be hosting!!!!

Valentines Day!!!!!

We didn't take any pictures on Valentines Day! But we had an Amazing day! We started the day off early with a couples massage! After the massage we went to Cabela's (my favorite store). Then we went and got lunch at Goodwood BBQ. We then headed to the mall and did a little shopping! Riley got 2 new Utah Ute hats, and I got some new socks (the ones I had on were killing my feet), some new really soft pajamas, and a new shirt! After walking the mall we decided to rest our feet and go to a movie! We went and saw Taken...we both really liked it. It wasn't what I was expecting so a little tragic, but really good! We then came home where Riley hooked up our little T.V. from our trailer outside on the BBQ and we watched part of a movie while relaxing in the hot-tub! We finished that movie in the house, and then retired to bed! It was a really fun and relaxing day! Thanks Riley for everything! I love you lots!!!!

My New Pride & Joy!!!!

After almost a year of washing the dishes by hand, I am soooooo happy to say we got a dishwasher!!!! We got this from the parents of one of my dear friends from work....Carly! They even brought it up from St. George for us! Thanks Car, and thank your parents again for us!I am also so grateful for a husband that can fix & install anything and everything! He had it in and running in like 45 minutes!!! We had to tear out a cupboard to put it in, but it was worth it!
You may have noticed the sink full of dishes in the first picture! That was an everyday occurrence. Not anymore, we actually left those dishes there cause we knew we were getting the dishwasher so we loaded it right up and started it that night!
So far so good, Riley has been putting his dishes in the dishwasher everyday! He even has started it and unloaded it twice already! Hopefully he keeps it up! :0)
Ahhhh....Life's simple pleasures!!!
