The girls next door

Just thinking about you girls next door. I know that you all dont even read my blog, but I still feel that I need to tell you all YOUR THE BEST! I finally feel like I have some true friends up here in the beehive state. Its only taken me 7 years to find you. :) Or It took 7 years for us all to come together to live in the wonderful world of Suncrest baby! I love our fondu/game nights and random visits at 10 pm. I love getting and giving treats and dinners to and from all of you. I guess you can say we all got pretty lucky moving to the same place at the same time.
I am so excited for summer when we can all just CHILL and watch our kids do the weirdest things~ while we laugh at them. Im excited for Andra to come home with her crazy stories from work. and bonnie with her wicked yummy food she makes! Jen? more jam baby! or apple jelly? Im exicted for the pools and slip-n-slide! I am excited to play with my future rip-stick and ride on my cool new bike! ( thank you haze and lloyd!) Im excited for embers random visits! Oh, there are benefits to not owning your own home......I have so many friends. well...I hope I do? No one is moving out yet right?
I know none of you are reading this but I had to post it anyway.
I also have to say that I miss my friends from home too. Courtney!!!!! I so miss you!

oh .......CHILDREN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Can I just say, Im going to FREAK OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't even begin. If I were to even say some of the things my children did today it would be considered gross and totally tacky. But I mean from the moment I woke up 8 am to 8 pm this evening and even at this very second, my oldest is repeatedly saying "dont have hat , dont have hat, do have hat, dont have hat" (((((?????)))))) Oh, thank heavens josh just took her upstairs to brush her teeth.
I wish I could say that Im dont want any more kids EVER!
Have you ever seen that movie with Goldie Hawn Called "houseboat"? remember when Goldie Hawn loses her memory and gets claimed by the capenter who worked on her yacht? She is then taken home with him and it put to work. she doesnt know anything about running a house and certainly running children. at the end of the day.....the kids found her looking like a deer in the headlights saying, "buah, buah, buah ,buah, buah, buah."
thats what Im going to do right now.
and its gonna feel gooooood.

Early Christmas Morning

I told Bailey to smile real big!

Sydney too. Every time I take a picture Taylor is smiling, then the flash goes off and this is what happens. She really is a happy baby.

Bad to the Bone...bbbabbbabaabaabbaaaaaddddd....

So Here is a little documentary of Christmas...except for this pic right here. This is taylors bad to the bone picture. I love it.

Here is me looking like Im on drugs. Josh and Sydster do. Syd is always wanting to do something with electronics. DS or TV. TV or DS. shes happy.

I love this pic. The one of my Mom Josh and Summer. I love the look on your face mom. Its the look of....well.. you know. all the hard work you've done to make an amazing Christmas summs it all up in your expression. You pull it off everytime. :) Josh, he is my angel.
Taylor you have your own Tinker Bell hat! Sooo Cute!

Summer.....oh...summer. Words can't express how I feel about my Summer dawn.

Oh my little Tayla Tay

Taylor had the hemangioma on her neck removed this past Monday. it all went very well. no more bright red tomato on her neck! Josh is so sweet, he has a pic of Taylor as his screen saver on his blackberry and I looked at it today and said "wow, that is one bright looking hemangioma, it almost takes away from seeing her beautiful face!" Josh looks at me, "Its never taken the attention of her beauty away from me" something like that.

Thats just how sweet Josh is. When Taylor was born with that he wasnt phased by it, "its just her beauty mark" "its special" He would hardly notice it like the rest of us. He loved it. but knowing that girls already have it hard enough we knew what had to be done. we had 1 session of laser treatment. didnt do a thing. But Dr. Meralis the plastic surgeon hopefully did a beautiful job. we havent seen the scar yet. But, he was sure of himself.

Robby moved into p-town about three weeks ago. within the first three days? yah, he got the flu, now he has some sinus issues. but hey, we love utah still right robb dogg?

My Grandma at thanksgiving 2008

the woman next to me? how about that is my biological grandma gillespie! you want to know how old she is? take a wild guess. you would never guess...and guess who inherited those genes?
See that girl to the left of my grandma? oh, thats totally me! I inherited those genes! Grandma, Love the hair do. My aunt rosanne is on the end. thats my dads sister. :) These two women could tell you some stories that would blow your socks off! but if you want to hear them, you'll just have to ask them.


yeah, so I did great with eating yesterday, I do have to mention my weakness. IM getting a little personal here, but when It comes to that time of the month my caloric intake goest thru the roof! well, for a day or so. but I am still pumped and sticking to my aspiration. Even if I have set backs.....:)
yesterday, I did awesome. I had so many veggies. today, no veggies. Josh and I went out to Kamas and he showed me where he lived for two years. we went to south summit for dinner. yeah, you know what that place served? pizza and ice cream. I totally gave into the tempation. I didnt even attempt. I was starving. :) and you want to know what? Im not ashamed, I somehow downed FOUR peices. Usually I cant even manage to cram that much but I just scarffed it down.
alright and......Im having a diet coke right now. but, i didnt have ice cream, ok, just 6 little bites. :)
did I just write that?
well, tomorrow is a new day. tonight i must renew my commitment tonight. :)
Im so excited, My brother in law Joseph had a birthday. He just turned 12 and hes being ordained as a deacon Sunday, for all who dont know this cute russian, he is a STUD. He is the future of dirt bike racing. Ok, maybe I try to force that on him. but you should see this guy ride his bike! Josh and I have promised to sponsor him if we ever get loaded. but sunday we are going over there for dinner! Josh and I are making big contributions to the food! can't wait to see you all!
Mom? I miss you.

I now make a pledge to change my life for the better by eating healthy foods. Here's why: For the past two months I've had sinus troubles that have kept me in doors lying around the house trying to "sleep it off and maybe I'll feel better tomorrow". yeah, right. Knowing that dairy and sugar creates this mucus, I decided to just for ONE day not have any dairy or sugar and I kid you not. I woke up the next morning with a clear nose and clarity behind my eyes! It was a miracle! that Night I decided to eat a pizza and an hour later.....stuffy nose, I felt tired and I had mucus again behind my eyes. I know what I have to do to feel good.
So, I'm excited to be feeling well and will share my progress every day.
If you want to join me in eating healthier then Please do! lets blog about it baby! I hardly blog anymore but I'll blog for this, so I can track my progress.
Here's to more energy, clarity of mind, energy, and overall well being. Beginning NOW.
Yeah!!!! I feel better already!
