Happy New Year!!!

Happy End of the Year 2015 my friends!

It's been a long time since I let you know about how we're doing here in Utah!

This year started off with the birth of my little granddaughter Landyn. She spent a week in the NICU, and gave us quite a scare! She is almost one, and is such a sweet and snuggly girl. She's got 6 teeth!

Nikson turned 2, and has become his own little man. He's got our whole family wrapped around his little fingers. He had learned to say " Ove you Mimi", and it gets him everything he wants, lol. I have done my best to spoil them with lots of love and kisses. 

This is their visit with Santa at Christmas.... Poor Santa had had a long day I think.


Kella and Malli are doing great this year at school. 10 and 11 have been ages for lots of changes for my littles. Kella is now taller than me, and Malli is close behind. "Tween" life is sure a hormonal roller coaster! Both girls still love to draw, and are nagging me about starting up blogs for their art work again. We will see!

Maggie is still looking for her "spot" in life. She's tried out a variety of jobs and a little school this year. I think she's finding being a mom and adding in work and school is a lot harder that she thought it would be. She's blessed to have so many in her life that want to help her and have faith in her!

Mike had to have his knee replaced in the spring, and he recovered really quick. After taking the summer off, he has jumped right back into work with his snow plow. We're so grateful for snow! And for all he does for us. If I even have to start cooking again, my kids may go on strike, lol.

Last of all... me! I am looking forward to a new start this coming year, and have lots of plans! Melonheadz continues to be a blessing in our lives, and is looking to grow and evolve more each day. This journey has taken me places I would never have dreamed of. It has given me direction, purpose, and opportunities to serve and share. I am so grateful for it all, and so grateful for all of the love and support from each of you!

In honor of the new year, I am having a sale in all of my shops.
Just in case you need a little Melonheadz in your life to start off this next year!

Giving Tuesday!!!!

We've all heard about Black Friday, Shop Local Saturday, and Cyber Monday.... But have you heard of Giving Tuesday???? On this day, we are to give back to our "community". I LOVE this day!!! 

Why you ask???

Because no matter how sad your life seems, or how many trials you have, giving ALWAYS makes you feel better. It always brightens your day, makes you feel needed, and reminds you that the world doesn't revolve around you every day. I find it an essential part of living. I hope you do too.

Christmas has ALWAYS been huge for me. I remember as a little girl, sneaking in to see what Santa had left for me on Christmas morning. I always got a beautiful baby doll. My mother would spend hours and hours sewing beautiful clothes and blankets for my babies every year, as her mother did for her. This is where I developed a love of dolls.

On the day after my 4th birthday, I was going to return a gift with my mother, and I accidentally opened the car door instead of rolling down the window. I fell out of the moving car and broke both legs, my right hip, and my pelvis. My hip was put back together with pins and screws. It was a long recovery, and trying for my family. Its amazing how resilient we are at that age! Once I had healed, I had to have the pins and screws removed. The only thing I asked for was..... you guessed it.... a new doll. 


Agatha became one of my favorites. She was able to go into the operating room with me, and came back out with a band aid on her cheek, and a hair net on her head. I still have her :)

I have tried to carry on this same tradition with my own girls, and am looking forward to do the same with my little grand daughter Landyn. I can't wait to give her her very first baby this year:)

For the last few Christmases, I have been so blessed by opportunities to share my love of dolls with some deserving little girls. It warms my heart to think of all of the love showered on these "babies"! 

This year, I was able to actually take one of my girls' best friends to pick out her own American Girl doll. This girl is amazing! She is always kind, and makes sure everyone feels included and happy. She has been such a blessing to our family. It's such a wonderful thing to see my girls so excited for someone else, and feel the spirit of giving. We had a fabulous time together. It's an afternoon I will never forget!

I have covered her face, to protect her :)

And to top it off, the day we went, American Girl was giving away one doll for every doll purchased (up to 1000 a day) from November 6-30th!!! That made our day that much better!

Have you heard of American Girl? The dolls are beautiful, and are made to represent every type of girl. You can check them out here:
