1. I have a half-brother I just met, last August.

2. My memories only go back to about age 6, before that I don't remember much of anything, only what I have seen of pictures and what I have been told.

3. I really love to dance, all different styles. Although I am not very good!

4.I am the only member of the Church in my family, I joined when I was 18.

5. I did a Mrs. pageant, just for fun when I was 4 months pregnant! It was a blast! I have pictures and metals to prove it!

6. I love white tigers! I have since I was little! I have always wanted to go to a school in Texas to learn about and be trained as a handler/trainer for them! Maybe someday!

7. I play two instruments, the tenor sax and the clarinet.


So yesterday I was sitting and holding Bekah. I had been tickling her and just having fun. I kissed her head and she said,'No kissin' me'. So of course I had to kiss her a ton more! Where she got that I have no idea! None of my kids have ever said that! It was so cute and out of the blue! I love those little moments!

Snow Fun!

So it snowed all day today, and yesterday. So we had lots of new snow to play in! After we got all bundled up out we went. The kids had a blast making snow angles and a snowman. Enjoy the pictures! They had so much fun! It was snowing giant fluffy flakes while they played, it was beautiful!

Random Thoughts

So, I have just set the date to have my tonsils out and was talking to the kids about it. A day later, Gracie comes up to me and gives me an 'early get your tonsils out present'. She had made me a picture and gave me one of her necklaces! She is SO sweet!How I got such a sweet little girl I don't know, but I am so thankful for her! I love her to death!
I have been do overly stressed lately that I now don't want to do anything! One of my friends here has a husband who is gone during the week and she is feeling the stress, I wish there was some wise words I could give her, but I don't have any. You just do what has to be done. And watch a lot of movies! I guess I just have no doubt that I want to be with Dustin, so I just wait, he's worth it.
Speaking of Dustin, the love of my life, a friend and I were talking about how we met our husbands. We both married young, met in different, weird ways. As I was leaving I was thinking about it. I have been married almost 12 years, and I love my sweet husband more today than I did then. More than even last year, last month, last week. I can't imagine loving him more, but that's what I thought when we got married. I can't wait to have an even greater love for him, it just blows my mind! I feel like we have a love you see in fairy tales, and sometimes, I can't believe it myself!
I took my kids to have their pictures taken and it was so cute! They all smiled so good! Even little Bekah was all grins! I can't wait to get them back! Jake is growing up so fast! He is so good looking, just like his dad. I love my kids so much. What would I do without them!?!?! I will try to post pictures soon!

Groundhog Day

As I was looking at blog backgrounds, I saw this one. I think it is cute. But my first thought was I HATE the movie 'Groundhog Day'!
When I was younger I was at my family friends home and we where all watching the movie, there where about 6 of us, including their dad, who is great. While we where watching the movie, he fell asleep, and when he woke up, (I think 2 of us where still awake, myself being one of them,that's how bad it was! ) he asked if we had started the movie over! And we had not. He fell asleep again, and woke up a little later, and again thought we had started it over! This happened three or four times!!! It was so boring! I get the story line and it is nice, but it was horrible to sit through!!! Sorry if any of you like it.
So, as I was looking at backgrounds I decided I needed to have this one, maybe it will help me move past my groundhog day nightmares!

Happy Birthday Gracie!

I can't believe my little girl is 6 years old!!! It seems like it wasn't very long ago that we where in Hawaii getting ready to bring her home from the hospital! Time flies when you are having fun I guess. Gracie has grown into a very sweet, caring, helpful, fun little girl! She loves helping around the house and with her little sister; who thinks she is the best ever! She is good at sharing and including everyone. She is SO smart! She is starting to read and is really good at math. She loves school and learning, and all her good friends! She is doing really well at dance also! It is so fun to watch her, she is totally focused. Way cute. She is such a joy to have around, always full of love and hugs! I am so thankful for my sweet little girl! She is growing up to fast though!

Happy Birthday Gracie, I love you so much!!!

We had a great Christmas which included going to all the different families! It was great and busy! So I have put a new slide show with pictures of everything! Even some of my gifts, I took pictures of to show Dustin! Enjoy!


Here are the birthday cakes that I made for Rebekah's birthday! Yes, cakes, as in two. We had a party with my family and with Dustin's. Our families are to big to combine!

This cow cake was for Bekah and my mom, who's birthday is the day before Bekah's; since Bekah refused to be born on her birthday! They both love cows!
Bekah's Minny cake! One of her favorite shows in Micky & Minnie Mouse! So we had a Minnie party!

2- I will do my dishes every night!
3- I will get rid of and keep my paper mess controlled!!!
4- I will read my scriptures every night, with the kids and by my self.
5- I will continually get rid of stuff we don't need or use.
I hope that all of you can follow your goals, and me too! Don't be afraid to ask how any of my resolutions are going at any time! (I will need the reminders!)
Hope your year is great and full of adventures! Ours will be!!!
