First Annual Gately Family Camping Trip

We have been having a wonderful summer and one of the highlights has been our camping trip to Flaming Gorge near Vernal, Utah. Shawn kept G and I took M,J & W. We had a wonderful time sleeping under the stars, roasting marshmallows and making smores, hiking, paddle boating, fishing (for trout,minnows and crawfish), horseback riding and exploring the beauty of nature all around us. We saw a lizard, deer, chipmunks, squirel and big horned sheep. My sisters and their kids came up for one of the days and we had tacos and so much fun with them. M & J said that this was the best vacation ever! I am now officially a "Fun Mom". Check out our fun pictures.

Willow Smiles

Shawn took this adorable video. Click on title to check it out!

As a way to say THANK YOU!

I snagged this off of my sister Valerie's blog. I hope some of you will take me up on my offer. Love you all. And I am so grateful to have great friends!

The first five people to respond to this post will get something made by me! My choice. For you. This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:

  1. I make no guarantees that you will like what I make!
  2. What I create will be just for you.
  3. It'll be done this year (hopefully sooner than later.)
  4. You will have no clue what it is going to be.
  5. I reserve the right to do something extremely strange. :)

The catch? Oh the catch is that you must re-post this on your blog. The first 5 people to do so and leave a comment telling me you did will win a FAB-U-LOUS homemade gift by me!

Better Late Than Never

I am finally back into the blog scene. I apologize to those of you who have been bugging me for pics and stories of our newest little addition. So here they are. Shawn got these while she was "talking" to him in her cute baby language of coos and shrieks. She is now three months old and is such a good baby. She loves to be held and loved on, which we are all so willing to oblige. She is even sleeping through the night, bless her little heart. She is truly the joy in our lives and we are enjoying her immensely!
