Cornstalks and Halloween costumes

From Linda E.

I have about 12 bundles of cornstalks and one scarecrow. These are free and already tied in bundles. The scarecrow is old, but still kind of cute. Anyone can just come by and pick up all they want. The cornstalks are located by the side of my driveway.
Also, Halloween is just around the corner. My daughter Sarah (Savannah's mom) is needing to earn some income from home. She is an expert seamstress. She will make Halloween costumes for between $10 and $25, depending on the difficulty of the costume. She has some patterns, but you would just need to get the pattern (if she doesn't have one) and the fabric, trim, etc. to her and she will make the costume. She is very good and very fast.

Family Dinner Time

Last week's Enrichment was great, though Copper thought it would be funny to be distractive. I wanted to share a few social-worky thoughts about the importance of family dinner time. Sitting down together, especially when your kids are teenagers, is a significant factor in preventing drug/alcohol use, depression, eating disorders, and sexual activity. It is also a significant contributor to academic performance and having your kids feel comfortable talking to parents about what is going on in their life. Most families don't have a hard time finding stuff to talk about during dinner, but most families I work with do. So I have a list of 120+ family conversation questions that are really fun. If you'd like a copy just email me at Sorry for the lesson on functional family life... :)

Coupon Bones*

For anyone that would like to try coupons ( or anyone that wants extras for that matter), I have coupon bones for whoever would like to come by and pick them up. There were 3 inserts this week: Red Plum, Procter&Gamble, & SmartSource so there are still quite a few I didn't use.


*Coupon bones = the leftovers that I didn't cut from Sunday's coupons.

Awesome Deal on Diapers

So, just a little FYI for anyone wanting a really good deal on diapers..... Right now Smith's has their brand diapers (jumbo pack) on sale for $5.96 a pack. Well, there is a website that allows you to print up to 2 $3 off coupons, which makes the diapers $3.16 per pack which includes tax. For some reason their computer will only scan 1 coupon per transaction, so you'll have to do 2 separate transactions. Anyhow, go to and scroll down until you see this picture, and there will be a link to click on that will let you print the coupons. If you don't already have coupon printer installed on your computer then you'll have to download it, but it will take you through the steps. It's way easy!!! Hope this is helpful.

Book Fair!

It's Book Fair time! The Book Fair will be Oct. 6-9 this year. We are in need of volunteers to help out for 2-3 hours at a time. You can sign up for as few or as many shifts as you would like. This is a great way to help our school and the community. This is a great time to help because you are able to bring your smaller children with you. On the other hand, we had a sister come help out last year and she doesn't even have children going to Fox Hollow! I have attached a link to the schedule below so hopefully you can get to it and sign up (if I did everything right!) If it doesn't work, leaves me a comment here or call me!

I really appreciate all the help we get from our ward with the Book Fair!

Ward Primary Party

A quick reminder about the primary party this Saturday. The kids can come with their bikes, scooters, wagons, etc. decorated in the primary colors of Red, Yellow & Blue to the cul-de-sac on 700 W at 10:00 am. We will break up into groups and "parade" around the ridge going to different "stations" (houses) along the way. Parents are welcome to sit out along the parade route. We will end up back in the same cul-de-sac for some refreshments and end about 11:15. We look forward to seeing all the kids there!

Pampers Rewards Program

If there is anyone that buys Pampers but doesn't use the code on the inside of the package for the rewards program, I would LOVE to have them!

Good Idea

I saw this on a crafters blog... thought it was a good idea for those of you who are potty training....

Sales Position in Dallas

I know this may be a long shot, but my company is looking for a Regional Sales Director in the Dallas area. We are hoping to find someone with training industry experience (we are a training/coaching company). This position is a high level sales position that would work with existing clients as well as develop new clients. If you know anyone I should talk to about this that would either be interested or might know someone who would be interested, I would love to hear from you! You can email me at or call me at 801-768-2390.

Workshop and Book Signing

Hey everyone!

I hope you are having a wonderful week, wherever you are. I wanted to let you know about a workshop I will be presenting on Saturday, October 3rd to kick-off the release of a book I have just completed. The topic is “Embracing Positive Body Image” and I will be doing a book signing directly afterward. The workshop is the weekend of General Conference during the Priesthood session - the perfect time for a “girl’s night”! If you have any questions or would like a copy of the flyer with more information, let me know.

Talk to you soon,

LeAnne Tolley

Hey all BLOGGERS...

I know many of you are out there and I just don't know how to find you! If you wouldn't mind people checking in on your cute family post your blog address...blogging is such a great way to keep up with each other! If any of you have private blogs, send me an invite if you want me stalking your cute family! Pretty please!

Holland family blog:

Box Tops are Awesome

Please clip and save those Box Tops and Campbell's Soup Labels and give them to your favorite Fox Hollow Elementary family.

100% of Box Tops money goes to our PTA.

There are many contests at school for collecting box tops so you will make a child happy, too.

Book Club Retraction

So I just found out that Enrichment is on the 22nd, so book club will be Thursday, Sep 24th, at 8 pm at my house. As I mentioned before, I have a copy of the book available to lend.

What we do

I love Hollie's idea of sharing our talents & skills with one another. It gives a chance to support one another even more. Here's what the Meiners' can do:
Jared is a great fixer. He can fix almost anything electronic - toys, computers, DVD players, etc. He also sells exercise equipment at half of retail - treadmills, ellipticals, etc. and he can do repairs on those types of machines. He's finished a basement before so he can mud, tape, wire, etc. For work, he does electrical and computer engineering
I like to do a lot of things, but I'm not an expert in any of them! I'm more than happy to help someone with sewing, canning, couponing, or scrapbooking. I like to try new recipes, so I have a lot of quick and easy favorites. I teach preschool and I love math (until you get into the calculus stuff).

Book Club

Just a reminder that book club is at 8pm on Tuesday, Sep. 22nd, at my house. The book is "The Woman in White" by Wilkie Collins. I really enjoyed it -- it was written in 1860 by a colleague of Charles Dickens. Portions of the book are written by different characters -- very intriguing! I have a copy of the book available if anyone would like to borrow it. However, you are more than welcome to come to "book club" even if you haven't read the book. I've done that more than once myself :) It's fun just to get together and visit! ~Elizabeth Lasson

Candidates for Mayor

Vaughn and I have had quit a bit of involvement with the Lehi Mayor and City Council in regards to the SR-92 construction. We have felt that the voice of the people has not been heard during our countless meetings with our elected city officials. It has been a frustrating process as we have seen the construction plans progress with little regard for our concerns. As such, we are endorsing Bert Wilson for Lehi City Mayor. He is a personal friend and a wonderful person. He has grown up in the Lehi area and has served the community for many years in various capacities and wants to be involved in the progress of the city. He is also mindful of the citizens in our area unlike some of the officials and shares our concerns. I am just passing this information along as I know it is sometimes hard to know how to cast your vote. This is a good man with a kind, generous heart. Be sure to vote in the primary election this month! -- Jan Beames

Halloween Costumes

We have a green alien from Toy Story (sz4), a orange & yellow fish (sz2) from Babystyle, I think, a orange & purple furry monster from Costco (sz 4), a spider (12mos.) and a mom size Maleficent.

Just One More Thing

I thought of one more item I wanted to throw out. I was talking with some of the neighbors about how little we know about the trades and professions of everyone in the ward. I always kick myself when I have given business to someone else and find out someone in the ward is in the same industry. So let's share our professions, skills, trades, etc. with each other so we are all in the know and can support each other even better! Post what you or you husband does if ya want! My husband Casey Hansen is a Mortgage Broker.

Thanks, Hollie Hansen

Halloween Costumes

Hi ladies! I know it's a little early to be thinking about Halloween, but I thought maybe earlier would be better as far as looking for Halloween costumes. I know that things are tight with the economy and thought that maybe we could all do some costume swaps this year! I have several costumes from the past years that I am willing to lend to others and if anyone else has some that they are willing to lend out, then please post what you have and let's make Halloween a little easier on our pocket books! (No cutting on the candy though :))

I have young girls ages 3-6 princess dresses, a 6-8 year old Elizabeth swan pirate costume, 3-5 year old Jojo (Jojo's circus), size 6 Dorothy, a size 3 buzz lightyear costume, size 12month Tinker Bell, and adult size Mr. & Mrs. Incredibles.

Let me know! Hollie Hansen

Looking for a couple more preschool students

I started preschool this week, but I'd still like to have 2-3 more in each class. (I guess with Jared getting laid off today, it's more than a 'like to' at this point! :) ) If you know of anyone in the area looking for preschool, please pass my number along! Thanks! 801 400-0443

Anybody want an Entertainment Book?

Fox Hollow Elementary is selling Entertainment Books ($20) and Sally Foster products (gift wrap, etc for $20 or less) for their fundraiser through Sept. 17. If you would like any of these products, see a school-age family near you.

October Book Club Book

Ok, so my dog decided to nibble on my library copy of "Sylvester" (Georgette Heyer), the book selection for October. So, since it was the only copy the library had (oops, sorry) and I have now had to buy it, anyone is welcome to it. As soon as I am finished reading it (probably by today or tomorrow), I will be giving it to Kristen Gibson to read. Please call her if you would like to be next in line to read it. It's a good story (good job Heather!) and I am sure you will all enjoy it. Sorry for the inconvenience everyone. (The dog, by the way, has been grounded).

I love to see the temple...

Our focus in Stake Conference this month was "temples" so we decided that our family night would also be focused there. The kids wanted to take pictures of the temple and each other...pretty funny! I am grateful that our family will be together forever because Tyler and I were married and sealed together in the temple. We are working hard to teach our kids about the temple and how important it is to stay clean so they can someday enter! They love driving to the temple and walking around the was beautiful tonight!
