FREE Chocolate

Want some free chocolate?
Chocolate just isn’t chocolate without cocoa butter. Recently, companies got permission to swap in cheaper ingredients for the real thing & still call it chocolate. Mars (maker of Dove, Snickers, Twix, M&M’s, etc) plans to stick with the real thing.

To prove their resolve, Mars started a Real Chocolate Relief Act promotion in May. What does that mean for you? The free chocolate giveaway will continue every Friday through September 25, 2009.

Mars is giving away 250,000 certificates for free Mars chocolate products. The certificates become available on Friday morning at 9:00 a.m. ET, and they’re available until they’re gone, so you’ll need to act fast.

There’s a limit of one coupon per email address per Friday & four coupons per household during the offer period. Must be a resident of the U.S. & age 13 or older to get a certificate. Go to

I signed up this morning, they will even send you an email reminder to get your free chocolate. Doesn't get much easier than that.

You don't see this everyday

Richard, Jaron, Trevon & I had a scout jamboree meeting this afternoon. While in that area we decided to check out this new grocery store. It is called 'Pro's Ranch Market'. It caters to the Hispanic community. It was such a cool grocery store. We got our flavored juice drinks. I had cantaloupe, Richard had guava & Jaron & Trevon both got horchata. We also had lunch/dinner there. It was delicious! We will totally have to go there again. We walked around and checked out the whole place. The bakery was amazing!!! However, while in the meat department, this cow head certainly caught my eye and I just had to take a picture. If you can believe it, this delicacy was not just decoration. It was actually for sale. For just $29.99 he can be yours. Someone please tell me, what in the world would you do with something like this?

A fun & busy weekend

We had company come into town for the weekend. My sister & her kids. It was a great time! It all started with the ward variety show on Friday. Trevon played Grandpa Turley's suzaphone. We also did a family skit that was silly.
Caden & Jaron had gone over to Gma Turley's to play cards Friday night and Trevon & Camdon got all dressed up & hid outside to scare them when they got him. They were able to get Caden but not Jaron. It was pretty funny.

Check out Kamrielle's pose above.
I love having those sweet kids around. I thought Carder was so clever to stack my (plastic) jars from large to small. Here he is in action.
Savannah & Kamrielle were teasing Carder & he was giving them a 'what for'
I got to fix Kamrielle hair a time or two. I always love to do that.
Cute little thing thought he was big stuff in the rocking chair.
Savannah & Kamrielle
Thanks for the fun visit and now I am off to girls camp for the week. More on that later.

Sunday afternoon

We went to Richard's parents home for an enjoyable afternoon on Sunday.
We had hawaiian haystacks & celebrated Jaron & Tiffani's birthdays.

Things tend to get a little crazy when you get our bunch together. Check out the funny faces.

Camdon is definately a goof ball!
Kellie experimenting with Trevon & Camdon. I guess they call this 'acro yoga'
Pretty cool, eh?

Trevon & I with our serious pose.
Hope your Sunday afternoon was as enjoyable as ours.

Check out this pool

This amazing pool is found in Chile..... I want to go there someday. Doesn't it look amazing!!!
You can take small sailboats out on this saltwater pool that Guinness World Records calls the largest in the world. At two thirds of a mile in length, the massive stretch of water has room for several man-made sand beaches. For nighttime swimming, head to the temperature-controlled beach inside the pool's centrally located glass pyramid—the water and the sand are heated.

Celebrating the 4th in ShowLow

We headed up to ShowLow last Thursday and it was such a great time. Stayed at my sister's house and loved every minute of it. As soon as we got there, Camdon found this frog and thought it was the coolest thing ever.
Until Trevon told him he could get warts, then he immediately put it down and wanted nothing to do with it.
We got to go and watch Kamrielle cheer at half time of the alumni football game. She had attended a cheer camp that week and this was their big performance.

Here she is doing her 'turkey leg jump'

It was really cute and so fun to watch. She is taking after her Aunt Marcy.
Saturday was the big parade. I always love to go and this year was no exception. Here we are waiting for it to start.
The big boys!
Jaron, Caden & Trevon

LoraLeigh's family minus Caden.
Carder loves horses and makes the cutest horse sound. He was pretty excited at all of the horses in the parade. He is pointing for his Dad to take him closer.
Our family at the parade, LL had a hard time getting a good one because someone is always making a face.
See what I mean?
Vinnie set up a wrestling ring and they had a few wrestling matches.

He had to get in on it and show them that he still had some moves.
This picture cracks me up with Jaron over his shoulder.
Then they were on to a game of 'wall ball'
Not sure what exactly that is but I do know they had fun.

Vinnie, I'm worried about you......
Need I say more?
Then we were off to watch the fireworks.
A great show as always. Here are the boys in the back of Vinnie's truck.
Our gang
Carder fell asleep mid-show. Poor guy, it was late.
Isn't he just adorable though? Love that little boy.
On Sunday we went to a BBQ at my Aunt Patsy's house. This is my Dads sister. We got to visit with lots of family that we hadn't seen for awhile. It was alot of fun but just not long enough.
It started to rain pretty hard while the kids were outside and they had to make a quick run for cover. It was so beautiful out there in Vernon.
My mom Chrissy, me, Aunt Patsy, my sister LoraLeigh & cousin Janna
It was another memorable holiday, thanks everyone! Thanks to the Wyatt's especially for letting us stay with them. We always feel right at home!
