Things I am Thankful for!

I know that this a little overdue but oh well.  Better late than never.  So here are a couple of things that I am grateful for.  (in no specific order)

1. My kids, even though they got muddy head to toe and walked in my house BEFORE I mopped the floor and not after.
2. My house, I finally feel like I can grow into it!  I can't believe all of my furniture actually fit in my old house.
3.  My babysitters, the mental break away from mom to wife/woman is very much needed and enjoyed!  Even if I pay you $6/hr and you don't clean up!
4. Mike, because he is my EVERYTHING.  How does he know that I am in such a pissy mood and he can make me laugh even when I don't want to.  He makes me laugh daily.  Sorry for spending so much time looking at People's Sexiest Men Alive issue.  Love ya babes!
5. The Gospel, because even though I may have days that I want to send the kids back to where they came from, I know that they are mine FOREVER!
6. My friends, from Chicago to Arizona to Utah!  I love you all!  Thanks for putting up with my complaining and my crazies, even when they are naked outside in the front yard!  And the BYU bandit's graffiti!  I know payback is a .......!  And coming to our Christmas parties throughout the years!
7. Church callings because the good Lord above knows that I am too immature for Relief Society so He only puts me in Primary and Young Womens!
8.  Mike, (again) for being my social butterfly and always having some kind of party going on or being planned.
9. My extended family, my mom's best advice was that marriage is getting two disfunctional families together and trying to create your own disfunctionality.  I miss you all!
10. Mike's extended family, for putting up with my 'disfunctionalities' (is that even a word?) and loving me anyway!
11. Stephenie Meyer, you are a genius!!!! And thanks for showing young ladies out there that it is okay to have a healthy relationship with a boy without having sex!  
12.  This is the Place Park, I know I am weird but I love it!  I love showing my kids how pioneers lived and the chores that they had to do! And I love that I have a Grandparent Gold membership so that I can get 4 adults and 6 kids in for free everytime!
13. My IUD, yes, even though I might have gained weight with you (of course, it isn't chocolates fault), I haven't had a period in 2 1/2 years!  And my mood swings are gone, so Mike thanks you as well!

Don't read this if you haven't seen THE movie yet!

OK!  I saw this movie with 4 of my friends and LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF IT!!!!!!!!  The actor of Edward grew on me after watching different trailors on  Bella was perfect!  Edward was GREAT!   I would see it in an Edward heartbeat again.  If I could nitpick and say something that I didn't would be the actress of Rosalee/Rosalyn whatever her name is.  Not supermodel beautiful like I pictured her.  But I guess that is who Stephenie Meyer pictured in her head.  Talking about Stephenie, did you notice her cameo appearance in the diner?  I do need to make a public apology to my friend, Katie, I hope you don't have too many bruises on  your arm from me getting a little too excited during the movie.  

There are a couple of things that I am sad about.  First, having to wait until New Moon comes out to see what happens. And second, dreaming of doing laundry at Wal-Mart and not dreaming of Edward last night.  I do want to read the books again just to have the characters in my mind.  So don't expect the house to get clean anytime soon, honey, once I can get my hands on Twilight, the book.

Good times! Good times!!!

This past weekend, our greatest friends in the world came up to celebrate Travis' last treatment of radiation!  It was truly a wonderful time!  To be honest, it was really hard to keep back my emotions at times.  Mostly during the House Bunny movie when I wanted to cry because I felt I was getting dumber each minute.  

We are just hanging out, playing Settlers of Catan before us chicks bailed out of the game.
Kath was happy that Andrea and I saw the light and ditched the Settlers game.  It was more fun to talk anyway!
A great victory for BYU!!!  The weather was perfect.  Sunny and cool!  Literally, perfect!I think the basis of this bromance is that they are all BYU fans!  And their wives are hot mommas!!!  Especially in Dance Jams at the gym!  (Don't ask me why it is typing like this?!)

The only thing that stunk about this weekend (other than my feet...don't worry I am going to throw those slippers away..sorry) was that we didn't have MORE TIME!!!!!!!!  I wish it would have lasted longer, a lot longer.  This pic is one where my emotions started to get to me, I will just pretend my face is red from the cold.  
I can't help but thank my niece Madison for babysitting the crazies (kids) for the weekend.  She is an angel!!!!  

I love you guys!  And miss you a ton!  It was soo good to see you all!  Let's do that again.  Soon, very soon!!! And never forget that 'the eyes are the nipples of the face'!

I guess Halloween is over!

Today we woke up to a lot of snow!!!  And it was a lot!  I guess I should take down all of my Halloween decorations and throw away the jack-o-lanterns.  It is just crazy that the radio stations are already playing Christmas music.  But today with all of the snow, I couldn't help but singing some.  The week of Halloween, the weather was beautiful!  We went to a neighbor's halloween work party and they had professional face-painters.  Who would have thought there were professionals out there?!  And they did a good job!We are getting ready to score on a ton of candy!  At the last minute Jayne decided she didn't want to be Sharpay.  So she got her constume from last year and wore it.  Whatever.
For those that know Jayne know that she can be quite 'spirited' some times.  But what a lot of people don't know is how sweet she can be at other times.  This picture shows one of those many cute times that she has.  Addie wanted to take a picture of us after our Halloween party/trick-or-treating (after I changed out of my costume into more comfy clothes).  Jayne was sitting down next to me and then all of the sudden she gave me this huge bear hug.  I love that girl!!!!

Playing Catch-up!

I can't believe I haven't posted in a couple of weeks, so here are some pix to show you what I have been up to.

Addie's birthday party.  We went to see HSM3!!!  I loved it!  And so did the girls.  Thanks Tiff for all of your help!  I definitely couldn't  have done it without your help!
And then there was the family party for Addie and her cousin Max.  Max and Easton enjoyed the girly dress ups!

Cousins London and Blake getting a little cozy.  They are so dang cute!

London keeping herself entertained while her mom unpacks the house!
