About Me

David, Sharleen and kids live in Lake Shore Utah. We live in an old home that was built in 1902. We have been renovating with the help of family and friends. David works for the Utah Farm Bureau Federation as the Vice President of Organization and Sharleen works hard at home taking care of David and the kids. We have 4 kids(Graham, Lilly Ty & Clara). We have a lot of fun together gardening, fixing this old house and running around like crazy just the same as all of you!

Merry Christmas Everyone! Boy I love this time of year! To be able to think about all those you love and wish the best for them and their families and also to see the excitement of Christmas in our children's eyes. We have a few things happen since I posted. Graham started Cub Scouts and Clara had her birthday and started walking everywhere. She is one busy little girl!

I think every parent has a picture like this of each of their kids - still cute as can be though.

what a good big brother. This was Graham waiting for the bus on the first day of school.

Clara's 1st b-day cake
Clara's version of helping her mom fold the laundry!

Clara thinks Haloween is pretty sweet!
Bowls full of Haloween candy - good thing they share with mom & dad
Can you guess what Ty was this year for Haloween

We sure have fun watching Clara grow up - part of us wishes she could stay little forever.
Grandap & Gradma Bailey's B-day present to Graham. Pretty funny!

Clara learning to walk. As you can see she thinks its pretty funny.

We are very grateful for a plentiful harvest this year!

Ty and Clara sure had fun playin in the willbarrows.

A few pictures from the last few months. I know these are not in order but rather than write a novel here I thought it would be fun to just post a bunch of pictures from the summer and fall.

Graham is Eight

Okay, I know I haven't posted in a long time but we had a great day yesterday with Graham at his baptism that I wanted to share some pic with all of you! Graham had three of his best friends get baptised too, so it was a fun day. I still can't believe I have a eight year old. The cake is Graham's freaky cake and we had a lot of fun making it. Graham was so excited that he was jumping up and down for joy and that is not an exaggeration. He got a suit for his birthday and a set of scriptures. He looks really grown up all dressed up! Thanks for all of you that came down and brought so much food!

Okay so I have forgot my blog for a whole month! What can I say the summer is crazy! I am sure all of you know what I mean! We have been having a lot of fun! David is liking his new position in his company and we are adjusting to sending him off to the office everyday. I know most husbands go to the office everyday, we just didn't know how lucky we were to have David around so much and now we miss him during the day! We love that he is home at nights and he can go to baseball and whatever else is going on! David really likes working with the young farmers and ranchers and supervising the regional managers. He is still learning the ropes a bit but I think he will do a great job! He just finished interviewing and hiring a guy for his old job he said that was quite the experience! We had a different 4th this year because David and Graham went with a neighbor of ours on a corn maze cutting trip. They went for 9 days and worked really hard and had a lot of fun. While they were gone the kids and I went to Liberty for the 4th and even spent some time at the Huntsville park (I haven't been to the Huntsville fireworks since I got married). We also went to the Argyle reunion at my mom and dad's. We had a great time but it wasn't the same without David and Graham! Here are some pictures from their trip

Well I was able to fill up two pots of water this morning with out going to the bathroom to get the water! Hurray! My sink is in along with my counter tops! What a wonderful thing to have a full functional Kitchen again! We still have a extensive list of things to do like the floor, doors, trim and so forth but we are grateful for the kitchen we have now and are really grateful for all the good help we have received! In other Bailey news, David has started his new job as the Vice Pres. of Organization. We are so proud of him, we are trying to adjust to him going to the office instead of his home office! Ty turned three this week and I can't believe how quick time goes by! He is a great little boy and we are so happy he is a part of our family! Well that's a real quick update and I will post pictures soon!

Well here they are my cabinets! They are a thing of beauty! I can't even believe how well everything turned out this far! We still need a few essentials like counter top and a sink but hopefully that will be coming this week!

Happy Birthday David! I am married to the most wonderful man! I love to watch him with our kids! They adoration they have for their father is so special to me! I am so grateful for David for always being my go to guy and my everything I need guy! I love you babe!


Well here is the update on our Kitchen. We have the drywall up and they are taping and mudding today! Can you see me doing a dance of joy?!!! I am so excited I can't even tell you! David, my Dad and Mom, Neil and Mitzi and David's Dad and Mom have all been working very, very hard to get us to this point! I can't believe all the wonderful help we have had! My job is to clean up the messes and keep everyone fed. I have learned how to cook things in a microwave that I didn't know you could! I feel so bad for David his brain is on overload and he is always thinking of each next step! Wow he has done an amazing job with this Kitchen! I can't wait to be cooking wonderful meals in my wonderful kitchen!

We had a Great Easter! The kids had a great time at the Easter Egg hunt in Lake Shore for the whole minute it lasted! I am not kidding just ask Mitzi. She was awe and surprised at the speed of the hunt! Adi wasn't impressed and luckily we got to have an Easter Egg hunt that afternoon at Grandma Argyle's where you had to actually look for the Easter Eggs. Mitzi and I left Neil and David working hard on the kitchen while we went to the Easter egg hunts and I am happy to report that things are moving forward. I get so excited when I think of how it will all look when we are done! We had a Easter celebrations at my moms house so we didn't have to deal with all the dust. It is so fun to watch kids do those kid things that you remember doing!

My Ty guy cracks me up! I told him to go get dressed for the day and he came down stairs in this! Now that might not seem that funny to you but he now has on four shirts. The first shirt is his undershirt he put on as a jamie shirt on Saturday after is bath, the next shirt is the one he wore on Sunday, we got home late on Sunday night and didn't get into pjs. Monday he added his third shirt instead of getting clean clothes on. Last night when it was time for jamies he insisted that he had to wear his shirts to bed and I was too tired to fight this battle! Well this morning he comes down with shirt number 4! What kind of a mother am I? Well I guess the outside one is always clean! I wonder how many days he could go?


As of Friday We no longer have a Kitchen! Wow what a job! On Friday evening David's parents and Neil and his family came down to our house and helped us tear it out! To get rid of our cabinets took all of about 30minutes but then we had to tear out the false ceiling. David, Gene and Neil got all that done and cleaned up by about 11 that night! We all went to bed with great anticipation for the next day when we would be taking out the brick wall! My Mom and Dad came down in the morning a the fun began! I don't know how many times this old house has been remodeled but I hope it makes it through this! It took a lot of thinking and talking but they did it! The wall wasn't supporting much but there was a whole lot of brick to haul out! We need to say a big thank you to everyone that came and helped and brought food too! It was AWESOME as Ty would say! As you can see in the pictures at one point there was a whole in my house! We went to see our cabinets up at dad's and they are so beautiful! I can't wait to post pictures of my new Kitchen. It is quite entertaining to wash the dishes in the bathtub and cook everything in the microwave but I am sure the fun of it will wear off real quick!

We had a great Trip to Washington DC at the end of February. It was very cold and DC got their first snow of the year when we were there! It was a business trip for David but it felt more like a vacation! It was fun to spend so much time with David and Clara. Our other kids were well taken care of by my mom! David and I were able to visit my cousins which was a lot of fun! It was also a great culture experience to go to the Washington DC Capital ward on Sunday! We even saw some people from Liberty there!
