Happy Birthday Cody

I know I'm a little slow on this post but I wanted to do it anyways.
Today my baby turned 13 years old.
Ok he's not really my baby anymore but he was for along time & I still kind of think of him in that way.

He was 7 lbs. 20 1/2 inches long and had dark hair all the way around his little head like a little old man with male pattern baldness.
He was a sweet baby, but wouldn't sleep through the night until he was about 11 or 12 months old.  He always thought he was starving no matter what I fed him before I put him down for the night.

We are 49er fans in this house.

And U of U fans.
Go Utes!!!








Happy Birthday Cody I Love you so much!!!
You have been a joy to me and I've loved watching you grow up and being your mom.

He walked me down the isle & gave me away.
My little man I love you.

Don't Fall Asleep When I'm Around

The Unsuspecting Subject.....
My Brother In-Law Marty.
He's sound asleep minding his own business
To BAD for him that I'm not!!!
It's a good Idea to stay awake & on your toes while I'm around.
(Just a little warning).
I can't believe I painted all his toenails & he didn't even flinch.
The end result!
I think that color looks great it elongates his feet.
He's was a good sport about it, he didn't get mad at me.
I'm on alert though for his payback!!!
Thanks Marty for letting us have some fun!!!

Neon Knights Dance

For those of you who don't know my family (Aunts, cousins, etc)
Let me tell you a little bit about them.
My mom has 3 sisters & 2 brothers so I of course have 5 aunts.
I have a lot of fond memories of these wonderful & crazy ladies.


When I was younger they used to like to make home made scars & cuts to put on us. 
(the kind you make with flour & food coloring & stuff)
The grosser the better for them and we would run around scaring everyone.


I will always have the wonderfully fun memories of them all singing & dancing with hairbrushes, wooden spoons etc. as microphones.
They would always drag us into there little show and we would have a blast dancing around making fools of ourselves. 


I'll always remember sitting around the campfires them all telling us scary stories making us so scared we were crying & not wanting to move to go to the bathroom & our tents at night.
Making us so scared that we didn't want to move once we got into our tents.
We always listened for any little sound even ones that weren't really there thinking the escaped crazy judge, the green eyed cat, or the ghost lady in the long white dress was coming for us.
(Now it's our turn to scare our little ones with the same stories & a few new ones)


I will fondly remember the days of picking on grandpa giving him make overs, curling his hair with the curling irons, putting plastic easter eggs that snap together all over in his hair, and picking on his ears by putting cold med cups on them or the old ponytail things with the balls on the ends around his ears (Poor Grandpa) All instigated by my loving Aunts.


Over the years they have given me so many memories that I could go on forever.
But this weekend they & a lot of my cousins gave me one I won't soon forget & I'm sure will become a tradition on our family camp out.

I didn't take my video camera so I used the video on my actual camera & I was holding Gage at the same time so it's not the greatest but if you want a good laugh you should check these videos out.
I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.



Aren't they GREAT?
This post is dedicated to my wonderful family all of you and 
ESPECIALLY to my wild, crazy fun loving AUNTS!!!
You have taught us all to be ourselves & have fun!!!
I LOVE YOU WITH ALL MY HEART!!!!

By the way the reason they're called the Neon Knights is because they performed this dance at night wearing those neon necklaces & bracelets so all you could see was the neon moving.
My cousin got it on her video camera that has night vision so I'm gonna try to get it from her to post.

Oh and on another note of how crazy they are they decided that after they performed it for our family they needed to take the act on the road to the family reunion that was up above our camp.  You gotta Love Em!!!

Family Camp out 2008 slide show.

We had so much fun on our family camp out.
It was really hot but the kids & the adults found ways to keep cool.
I took way to many pics so here is a little slide show of some of our fun & excitement.



I LOVE my family all of them from Aunts & Uncles, cousins & there kids to my own family & kids. 
We always have a good time together & get along very well.
Besides one little trip to the hospital (cousins son Carter fell & cut his side open he had to get a few stitches but came back good as new) we had a very safe & drama free weekend.
I Love you all my family!!!!

My Husband is so sweet & thoughtful, he really is the best!
He came home from work early today to take me out for our Anniversary.
He even brought these home for me...



They are so beautiful He got a butterfly because I LOVE them.
He also bought us a couples night at our local day spa to pamper ourselves.
He is so very thoughtful I LOVE him so much.
He spoils me way to much.
He got him mom & dad to watch the boys for us & he took me to dinner at the Timbermine (a local steakhouse) it was so good & so nice to be together without kids.
I truly couldn't ask for a better man ever.
I LOVE  YOU BABY!!!

Kelton's 1st hair cut

My little man got his 1st ever big boy hair cut today.
It's a little sad to me I didn't want to cut it but it was always in his little eyes & the back was getting so long that when he would sit in his car seat or stroller he would rub it into knots & it would look all fussy gel wasn't helping much either.
So I finally broke down today & had it cut.
I wasn't thinking to take a picture before while he was in the chair so here are a few before pics taken this last sat.


Here are a few after pictures.
He looks like such a big boy now.
I'm gonna miss his little curls but it really needed to be cut.



He is still cute as ever!!!
I kept it longer I didn't want a buzz cut on him.
I think it turned out cute.

I kinda need everyones help please.
I'm trying to decide what to do with my kitchen and I'm really not sure what to do.
I was thinking about painting my cabinets black but I'm not sure & I'm not sure on what color to do the walls if I do.
I'm not very good at the redecorating thing I'm not very creative so please HELP any ideas or advice will be greatly appreciated.

My house is very small it was my grandparents (my mom's childhood home aww). 
When my grandma passed away Court & I were living in a 2 bed 2 bath apt about 3 blocks away.
After Steve died I couldn't afford my house so I had to sell it.
(Women MAKE SURE that you have the death insurance on your home, Steve told me he did & I believed him But he DIDN'T so I lost my home & a lot of other things.
So PLEASE for your own sake make sure & see it with your own eyes). 
Anyways maybe I'll tell you all of that story another time.

The family was going to sell the house & I told my mom i was interested in buying it if it was in my price range.
It was & it actually costs me less for a house payment then I was paying for rent & storage.
So I became a proud homeowner again.
The house was just right for Court & I but then I got married & we had 3.
Still enough room for us but then I got pregnant & we got the boy's.
We're a little cramped now but it's livable. 
We we're looking to move about 7 or 8 months ago we went out looking at houses & got pre qualified the whole works & then I got layed off.
I decided that I liked being home with the boys & wanted to be a SAHM so we're stuck here for awhile longer.
So PLEASE PLEASE HELP ME!!!!
Thank you very very much in advance.

Here are some pics of what the kitchen looks like now
notice the attractive chicken border on the top?
(not so much my style).






I have 2 of the best helpers ever!!!
And of course the cutest!!!



They take the dishes out as fast as I can put them in.
I have to rinse everything out in the sink and clean ALL the dishes at once then hurry and load them into the dishwasher as fast as I can before they end up on the floor.
I won't complain to much though at least they want to help!

Oh I am so Happy!!!
I knew she would pick Jesse!


I know there are a lot of people out there who really don't care for him, but I've been rutting for him from the beginning.
He has from day one been himself & never pretended to be anyone he wasn't.
I also really liked the fact that he really wanted to be friends with her before he got physical with her.  I think he is a fun & very cute guy.
Way to go "D" you made the right choice in my book.

The Bachelorette

I don't know if any of you have been watching the Bachelorette but the finale is on tonight.
I just have to say that I'm on team Jesse!

I just really like him, I think he is honest & he is himself.
I like that they were friends first throughout the show.
And I think he is a lot of fun.


Jason is a good guy & cute to though plus the fact that he is raising his son on his own is awesome.  Either choice is a good choice I think, but I'm still rutting for Jesse, I think he is kinda the underdog & has been through out the show.
I guess We'll find out tonight.
GO JESSE!!!

Not a Virgin anymore!

Well folks it finally happened!!!
I'm not a BUNCO virgin anymore, someone finally asked me & my  two daughters (Court & Kami) to play.


We were subbing for people who couldn't make it, BUT they needed to also find replacements for a couple of people, so we are now a part of the BUNCO fun every month!!!
YEAH. YEAH. YEAH.

Could you tell that I liked it & I had a BLAST?
I play with a couple of my cousins Kaylee & Kelsey
& a bunch of there friends.
The girls are all really nice & funny & I had sooooo much fun.
PLUS it was so nice to get out of the house & spend some time with other women.
So I am not a Virgin anymore!!!


Tampons are not a Snack!!!

This is an Everyday happening at my house.


What you ask?

In case some of you might not know or use the OB Tampons this is what they look like laying all over the bathroom floor.
(Please note the spit out Bink lying on the floor!)

Yes Everyday when I'm trying Really Really hard to get ready for the day this is what happens.
Why is it that boys are the only ones that play in moms personal hygiene  products?
I just don't get the appeal of it at all.

This is what the OB Tampon looks like sticking out of  the wrong orifice!
Cute I know, but still so wrong!!!


I guess Boys will be Boys huh?
