Happy Anniversary

November 26, 1994

I feel very ecstatic to say that 14 years ago today we were married. What a blessing it has been to have this man be my husband. I love him more than words can say. He makes me laugh, we are still goofy together, and happy, very happy. I am in love with him, and am looking forward to an eternity. Happy Anniversary honey. I love you.
I will post a now picture as soon as we get one.


7 Weird Things about Me:

2 years


WOW-how time flies. I was reading a friends blog and she noted how it had been a year since she started her blog. So I decided to go to the earliest post-it just happened to be November 17th 2006. WOW! Two years of blogging. What a wonderful blessing this has been for me. I love it. and I love keeping up with everyone else through their blogs.

so i guess its time for an update-things with my contacts worked out great. Thanks for the encouragement. Potty training is going as well as could be expected. He finally figured it out and is now only having issues with pooping. it will come, hopefully soon. He stayed dry at church. that is my usual stress, being away from home for more than 3 hours. but he did fine. Sunday was our Primary Program. Its when the kids ages 3 to 12 give talks and sing songs to present what they have been learning through out the year. It can be a very sweet experience, except when your child looks pale and has had the flu that weekend, and you are praying he doesn't hurl all over the 5 kids sitting around him.(he was sad because they moved his seat, and he was actually crying)(FYI, if I was really worried that he wasn't feeling well, I would have kept him home. but sometimes you never know if they are really well until like a week later) and your 4 year old is standing up, sitting down, laughing, poking, and the worst, hitting his teacher.(dad had to get up, walk around the back, and up the other isle to step in and keep him from giving his teacher a black eye) Our family also sang one of the verses in the song "Home". All the kids, and us sang the first verse, we sang the second one alone, and then we all joined in again for the third verse. The verse we sang went like this "Home is where there's father, with strength and wisdom true. Home is where there's mother, and all the children too." We were loud enough that one person said they didn't know we were singing alone. So I figure that is a compliment. I think that Austin had the right idea, as he was sitting down by my feet hiding. I enjoyed the experience, but its really not my favorite thing to do-sing in front of people.
We have the greatest neighbors. They share their toys with us. They had two wiggle bikes, shown in the pictures. and because my children can't share, they now have two more. the kids still don't share. But it is wonderful to have such great neighbors. All the kids run out the door when they see Sammy playing outside. We love you guys! and not just because you share your toys. :)

Thursday night fun

Super Citizen

Tanner is our super citizen this month. I wish his teacher would have sent a note that said why she picked him-cuz I don't remember. I do know that she thought he was just quiet, but really he is just paying attention and being good. Way to go Tanner. He got a certificate, and a free dinner at Golden Corral!!

hair cuts

Yay for hair cuts. You have seen all the boys with their hair recently. I was so happy when Jared set up hair cuts with a friend of ours. She spent over 2 hours cutting the kids hair today. What a friend!!

look at that pile of hair. oh man did we need some hair cuts


We had a great Halloween. Busy, busy, busy. We started off by walking in the Kindergarten Parade, and then helping in Logan's class. We then stayed and watched the big kid parade, and the 2nd grade singing program. After school was out, we ran a bunch of errands, picking up the big kids on the way, I needed candy to pass out- I know, I waited til the last possible moment! I am great at procrastinating. We had trunk or treat at the park and then headed out trick or treating. The kids got a ton of candy and were super pooped out by the end of the night.
Logan's class-his teacher is great. She has 7 kids too, totally cool.

Gage loves playing in Logan's class, there are so many great toys. He got up and sat in this chair all by himself

Playing games

All of the 2nd grade singers

By this time-5:30 pm- we hit melt down mode. It only took him 30 minutes to get over his fit, and go to get candy without his costume
