My poor heart...

Recently events in my life have changed my way of thinking. ... I do not want what I thought was good for me, and changing my thinking is something that has been really hard..... especially realizing that what I thought was good enough for me wasn't good at all... not making any sense?? GOOD!!!


All I know for sure is that I am loved by some very amazing people... and for now, that is enough....

Thanks for the love... thanks for being my friend... I thank Heavenly Father for the people he sends into my life..daily..

Little one...


The other night I was suddenly woken up by the sweetest face. It was my three year old. With his angelic little voice he said, "mommy, read". So, at three in the morning we snuggled up in his blanket and read christmas stories and drank Hot chocolate. He was so cute, and in the morning I got to take these pictures...

Happiness on the horizon...

I think this new year will bring with it all different kinds of happiness and I am excited for it to begin. I am thrilled for Christmas to come so I can have another chance to teach my children to choose a better path. I am happy for a fresh beginning and a different set of choices. New year = new adventures with my family!!

Bart And #2 boy

videoIt was so funny to watch my little man playing with all the christmas Decorations last night. He really likes this one and will play with it for a really long time. Maybe I should go get it... Really cute I think.

Notice how he bonks himself in the face and rubs it in the middle of the video...and he still is singing!!

Turkey day is fast approaching!!



So in the spirit of the holidays my kids and I made some turkeys and leaf art. I love the way the turkeys turned out!! We got this pattern off of this site here...
Then #2 son pulled the heads off of three of them.....
superglue where are you???? (over here...)
Gobble!!gobble!!

He's back at school!!

OK #1 boy is much better and is on amoxicilin (which he loves) and back at school. #2 boy doesn't quite know how to handle this. He loves his brother and is always bugging him and pestering him...so now because the pestering must go on, and I am the only one here..I am the target.
While I was on the phone today I heard him downstairs. I thought he had gotten onto the counter and turned on the garbage disposal, but no!!! He had put a banana in the blender with the peel on and pushed the button. So, when I came downstairs I was laughing hysterically at this boys genius!!

He really is sick...

Okay he wasn't faking it, he really is sick. Today he can't swallow!! I am going to have to take him in on Monday if it isn't getting any better. Poor boy!! :(

Friday, November 14, 2008

so #1 boy is pretending to be sick....

Sometimes when I was a kid I would pretend to be sick. My mom knew I was just not wanting to go to school and so she would let me stay home. My oldest son is doing this today and I am enjoying him being home. He entertains #2boy who is always up in my grill...boye....

I love my boys and maybe he really does have the sore throat he's complaining about.. who knows, but I love him and want him to get better soon. Like before date night...that would be nice... before 6pm preferably. ;)

Trwew Lub is da reason we are togetha today....

Well life as I know it is still kids, work and dating my true love (whom I married). Now when I get into a little bit of a rut I have to remind myself that I picked HIM.
This is one of the reasons why video

I really did. I went to his apartment for a week until he asked me out and I would bother him with e mails and wait at his apartment until he got home. I really picked him to be my true love. He was so innocent and cute and funny. I really love him and I need to remember that little guy that I picked is still in there somewhere. He just grew up a little. Life changes and it changes you right along with it. I am sure I am not the girl he married. I hope I am better in most ways. I am sure I'm worse in some ways (hopefully not too many) that are really grinding for him. I just hope he will take the good with the bad and we can develop better selves. I love my main sqeeze and I know he loves me.... I just hope he knows how much!! I love You Baby!!

Family fun!!



So, my sister had a birthday and we all have to have a party as often as possible.....We always have such a good time. Last night we watched some YouTube of people doing Zumba (I know it should be on the other blog) and it was so funny!! Randy even said it looked fun, but he is a good dancer, so it should look fun. My Mom and Dad are even going to start doing Zumba... Any way...We had a good party and I got my sis this really cute purse and she hated it!! So, I got a new Purse for her birthday..LOL!! It was full of all sorts of candy that she did keep.. Crazy huh?

She is now officially on the DO NOT BUY HER PRESENTS List!!! ;) Love you Lizzy!!! (but you are on the list still)

Schools out for the week..

So, I think I am a pretty patient person, but when school is out I go a little crazy!! I love my children, I do, but I am tired of school being out!! They do the wierdest things when they are home. Last night we had some visitors and they were all over them (sorry about that!) To the point that I could not hear what our visitors were saying!! Agh! I need to help them unwind sometimes...and not when company is over. LOL!! I did learn how to give awesome piggyback rides buckin' bronco style! Thanks for that Travis! You are a lifesaver.

Halloween

I really love Holidays and when Halloween comes I am overjoyed and overstressed. I realize at this point how unprepared I am for the rest of the holidays coming soon. Christmas is now right around the corner and Thanksgiving is in a few weeks!! To my great delight I get to have every holiday at my house. That makes it easy to be on time. The only downside is that I have to clean and cook at the same time. I enjoy so much having family over so that makes up for the double time in the kitchen. I am so happy the holidays have begun!!










We had a good party last night. Lots of people came and the house was crowded. Sorry that the Wii was on...I had no idea!! Too much going on.... ;)
















Thanks Dr Phill for coming and supporting this function. LOL SO funny!!

Two friends from far away...


Last night we had Pierre's new friend Juan, spend the night. He is from Columbia. They are so different and so funny. They are also still asleep and it is 9:30...I bet they will sleep until 11 or so because they were up so late/early last night playing the Wii and PS2. Juan is going to find me some really good music for the Zumba class!! I am happy about that. He was playing some for me last night and you are going to love it!! I will mix it into my playlist soon.







Juan wants cool host parents, like Pierre. I think his are nice....but I have only met them one time. I guess they have two daughters and are very strict with him. I would be too, but mine go everywhere with me so Pierre is kind of on his own most of the time. Poor Pierre...LOL!!

Tired of being sad

I am officially tired of crying and being sad. It is now time to be happy. Happy I know the people that I do in my life. I am happy to be me and no one else. I am happy for my family who is so supportive and loving. I am grateful for trials which seem to be abundant lately, but that teach me to be humble and more loving to those around me. I am happy to have sky and sun and rain and snow. I am happy for the ocean and water, the birds and the fish (even though we have lost 3 of six so far). I love my life. I love my friends. I love God for he is the one who is always there to lift me up. All I have to do is ask for his help and I receive it. I am happy to have known such a dear friend like Anna in my life. I know that good friends are hard to find... and I am blessed to have many friends that love me..... And I love them right back!!!

Sweetie, honey, baby...

These are the words you would hear if you were having any sort of conversation with my sweet friend Anna. Her death was so unexpected for me and I am still spinning from it. I am sure if there is a just and merciful God (and I am sure there is) that she is in a happy place. That she is talking to other people in her same sweet voice that I am now missing. I love you Anna ....Farewell..... until we meet again.

During conference

Today during conference we had the opportunity to teach our exchange student how the church works. It was a great experience to think about how much I have gained and learned from being a member of the church. By listening to the speakers I gained a lot of insight on how much the pioneers suffered, how we all have personal experience to help us when we are in need, the comfort our Heavenly Father gives us through the holy Ghost, how to enjoy every moment, how to treat our loved ones here in the home, and how our examples can change other people's lives for good.

I always need a small reminder right about this time of year... amazing how that works..and I am so glad for the fun we have wrestling with the kids to try and get them to listen. This year we used color pages, puzzles and quiet books for the kids. I baked in between and during some of the sessions so that we could keep our mouths full and quiet while we listened. We still couldn't hear all of the sessions because of the kids, but we mostly were happy and we mostly heard. I think you always hear what you need to hear.....no matter what.

So, in beween sessions this is what my children are like...

They are so funny! All giggles and crazies. I guess I could get mad or I could just smile.....

Corn Maize!

Today I took my children to the corn Maize in Meridian. It was so fun, we all had a good time. I lost two of them for a while, but I was never really panicked because there are only a few ways out of the Maize. Pierre and I split up and looked for them only to discover that they were already done and playing in a small tractor pull thing. Here are all the kids on a hayride.. It was really hot and we were very tired after all that looking for kids and finding nothing and looking again and them seeing us and just giggling at us looking for them...

This picture is great. At first they were in the right ones...Girl on the girl side and boy on the boy side, but then they switched and I snapped the picture...nice boobies...mr.. Little guy wanted a small pumpkin. So, we carried it around for a while. He later threw it off of a bridge in the corn maize....what?? We then went to buy costumes for Halloween at Walmart- which they are now all sleeping in.. So funny. I remember I used to do that. My mom used to buy pajamas that were a princess theme and I could wear them for longer.
