I think it's safe to say that he's going for his Eagle with the kind of precision and determination that would make any hard core (AKA the non-LDS kind) scouter proud. The 5 year old scout shirt that barely buttons, screams "in it to win it" like nothing else. Jon got him to remove his Supreme hat and Kanye tour t-shirt. In my defense (and I'm pretty sure there's not one) I was hosting Cake Wars for my Activity Days Girls #crapMormonsdo and didn't see him walk out the door. Sweats? To a Court of Honor? Really? I give up on 78 levels. Maybe 79. #stuffcolewears #stuffcoledoes #futureeaglescoutsofamerica #poorjon #ididntmakethechalkboard #fyi

Mormal. If you're not LDS, that's Mormon + formal. I know, we're weird....but I kinda like it that way. I also like all the green around here 🌿🌿🌿. #peculiarpeople #butwecanbake #thatsallthatreallymatters

I love my new Webelo, but I'm slightly disappointed that he doesn't love all of my brilliant ideas. For instance, at tonight's Blue and Gold Banquet each scout slash mom was to enter a cake, decorated in the evenings "carnival" theme, into the cake #duh contest. Last night, when I realized this, I thought πŸ™„πŸ˜«πŸ˜΅πŸ’©πŸ˜±πŸ”«. So I asked Tanner if we could buy a blank Costco sheet cake and have them write on it. He could choose any of the following options AND I'd pay him $10: #aintnobodygottimeforthat #mymomforgot #mymomislame #mymomsucksatscouts #mymomhasgivenuponlife #thirdchildproblems #sorrymymomcanteven . He wasn't into it. But we would have won, right? (We wouldn't was like an episode of cake wars up in there). Sigh.

Birthday dinner celebrating @annatcooks last year before she's officially old. Cole loves her so much he wore a matching outfit (I kind of feel like they're going to Sadie that still a thing?). Sidenote: we need this restaurant in Orange County. #iprobablybetternothashtagherage #😳

This picture sums up Tanner this year. He's become just as obnoxious and sarcastic as the rest of us, and is always cracking us (and himself) up. We are constantly looking at each other, going "did he seriously just say that?" Happy birthday, Tanner, we love you, you little stinker. #joncted Thank you for the perfect capture @lovelydovephoto.

10. Double digits. Where'd my baby go? Tanner is smart and funny and def. the baby of the family. He loves: basketball, mine craft, drawing (he is insane at drawing can imagine how happy this makes me), mine craft, playing piano, getting his homework done ASAP (I know....this is a lucky mom break), mine craft, saying prayers (he helps us all remember), cool shoes and, of course, mine craft (especially while face timing cousin Jack in Alaska and playing together). Please stop growing up. #canthandleit #stillholdsmyhand #probablynotafterhereadsthis

Low quality picture of a high quality night. Celebrating our mom/grandma (the late) Hazel on her birthday. Shared favorite memories of her and randomly exchanged gifts without planning it. I suppose if we'd really wanted to honor her, we'd have eaten at Houston's, all wearing St. John knits and exchanged LancΓ΄me gifts with purchase. Oh well, we tried.

Hi friends. Posted this on my @poseypop account yesterday. Figured I'd post it here as well. I get lots of "oh crap! Is it too late to order?" texts a few days before Valentine's Day. I usually run out of flowers. So, just a heads up; finalizing orders by tomorrow, so....last call. All that said, frantic texts a few days before are fine, but no guarantees. Email me at for details. You're welcome to text or DM me as well.

Boi, you 'bout to finna get flamed.
