I figured it would be best if I separate things by each month that they happened in since I haven't updated these past few months. I am officially done with Christmas shopping! Actually I have been done. I have made my Christmas goodies that I make every year, all I have left to make now is my homemade red velvet cake. Yum! Yum!

Jenny has taken more pictures for me last week! The girls were completely out of control, they would NOT listen to me, barely listening to Jenny! I felt so sorry for her! The Christmas picture posted up top is one she took. She has a few posted on her blog but I will post more soon!

We just got back from up north. Braydons cousin Brooke got married and we got caught in the snow storm driving up but thankfully we got there safely. Late, but safe! She was absolutely beautiful! Everything was beautiful and well put together!

Brooklyns birthday is tomorrow so she gets to pick how the day is going to go. The plan is to eat lunch at Pizza Factory then come back and have a Hannah Montana birthday party! I will let you know how it goes.


November... The girls and I went back to N.C. to visit for 9 days. Braydon flew out a few days after us. We just hung out with family and ate some good food! I went to the pro-basketball game in Charlotte that weekend. I actually ran into a guy I went to high school with who I havent seen since 10th grade as we were leaving the game! I cant believe I recognized him, and he recognized me! He went from being a good student and athlete to being a drug dealer on the streets of Charlotte. It's amazing how life can change!

In October...

In October me, Lindsey, Kaci, and Emily went to see Chelsea Handler, the comedian in Las Vegas and stayed the night at the Palms. (Thanks Shaun & Lindsey!)We went to eat at the Cheesecake Factory (one of my favorite places to eat there) and of course It was hard for us to find a parking spot but Lindsey knows a "secret place" to park where you walk in right by the restaurant! She deserved that parking spot anyway... she was pregnant! After the show we ate again and then waited on the palm reader to get back so Kaci can get her palm read. She was taking forever so poor Lindsey called it a night and went upstairs. We waited down there for like 45 more minutes and finally she went in to get it read. It seriously took like 10 minutes, if that, to get her palm read and it was all so vague! I guess that is the kinda stuff you do for fun 'round there if your not a partier! I wanted to do it after her but after I saw what she did I figured I would just save my money! We then went back up to our room, ordered 3 different desserts from room service, had girl talk then crashed! Anyways, Chelsea was a riot, a little too vulgar at times but overall we all had fun!

The 23rd was my 25th birthday! What the heck?! I do not want to be 25......geez


In September....

So back in September (I cant believe I havent blogged since then!) Ava had her 3rd birthday on the 13th. We had her party at Jumpin' Jacks! Everyone had a blast! My friend Britney has a daughter Kamryn whose birthday was about the same time as Ava's so we decided to have the party together. Everything went perfectly! Later in the month I had a friend Jenny Wilson who loves taking pictures and wants the experience asked me if she can take pictures of my girls! Of course I said yes! She only charges $75.00 and she gives you the CD with all the pictures on it and another CD of some of the pictures she has edited for you! If you want her number let me know! She does a fantastic job! She also has a blog.

For all of you that actually check out my blog I will be updating it within the next few says. I just have to use Braydons laptop because I dont know how to download pics onto this laptop that I am using right now. I know the suspense is going to kill but just try and hold on a few more days!

Seriously... I am addicted to cookie dough! I will get out the sugars, flour, vanilla, salt, etc. and make the flippin' cookie dough! After I eat it I feel absolutely terrible. This happens typically twice a week. For the past two months it has been better, but this past week I have done it three times and I just bought cookie dough- it was buy four packs for ten dollars. How can I say no to that when I am in the middle of a binge? Somebody help me please!

My new shirt!

Cute shirt huh? Well, when I was up in Idaho a few weeks ago Mandee(my cousin-in-law)had on the cutest shirt and I thought it looked so good on her! She said she got it at Buckle. Well, I was just at our local Buckle in St. George not too long ago and I sure did not see it so while in Idaho I looked at the Buckle there and no sign of the shirt there. When I got back to St. George I looked again. It wasnt at our Buckle. When I went to California I looked there- you guessed it...they didnt have it either so I decided to look online, on ebay, and no sign of the flippin' shirt anywhere! I had an obseesion with this shirt- I couldnt forget about it. Well, the other day I get a package from Savanah(Mandees sister) and behold...IT WAS THE SHIRT!!! Savanah found the shirt in the mall somewhere up north and she and Mandee went in together and got it for me! How freakin sweet are they! Could anyone ask for better cousin-in-laws? I think not. THANKS LADIES!!

More to that is....

Well, it has been awhile sence I blogged last. I will post some pics. in the next few days. Since July Brooklyn has started preschool, dance, and gymnastics. Ava is doing gymnastics and now she says she is ready to do dance again since she can be in the same class as Brooklyn. I am excited for them to be together!

We just took a weekend trip to California for Labor Day. We decided Friday morning that we were headin' out at 3:00pm! So I had a busy day of getting everything ready! We got there Friday night and got a good nights' rest then got up and drove to the beach for a few hours on Saturday. The water on the west coast in so much colder than the east coast. Braydon tried to tackle a few waves- the waves won everytime.... He was definently feeling the beating Sunday morning! So Sunday we got the car ready and headed for Disneyland! After parking we were making sure we had everything and I double checked the camcorder and it was broken!!! I was soooo mad! Needless to say I just took lots of snapshots. The girls and I had so much fun! They got to meet their favorite princess- Jasmine and Snow White! Poor Ava was struggling by the end of the day to make it through without falling asleep. Brooklyn started complaining about her legs hurting her. After 8 hours there we were all done! For dinner I was wanting Chick-fil-a so bad! It is one of my favorite places to eat. So we pull up to the drive-through and it is freakin' closed! I forgot that they are always closed on Sunday! I made sure we went there for breakfast the next morning, though! After breakfast we headed home!

4th of July

First off, does anyone know how I can get some more fonts to choose from? Anyway, July 4th went pretty well. We all went to the park where fun stuff was suppose to be going on...needless to say we lasted there for about twenty minutes then decided we should just go buy our own fireworks and have our own celebration! The girls loved having there own personal firework show. By the time it got dark we went up to Foremaster Ridge- along with half of St. George, and watched the city fireworks. Ava was more worried and freaking out about the stink bug that kept crawling our way. oh, the poor thing burned her finger on a sparkler earlier so we gave her a cup of ice water to stick her finger in and she carried it around with her the rest of night. She even fell asleep with her finger in it! And that is how we spent our holiday!

Friends and Family

It is amazing how quickly life can change. (No I am not preggo and I am not dying. :) This journey called life is an amazing ride. It just wouldn't feel right if I didn't express my love for my Heavenly Father right now. I know he is real and he will be here for us as long as we call on him. Not only is he my Heavenly Father, he is my friend.

*Come unto me, all ye that labour
and are heavy laden,
and I will give you rest.
Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me;
for I am meek and lowly in heart:
and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
Matthew 11:28-30

I am so thankful to have wonderful friends and family in my life to have fun with, laugh with, cry with- you name it and they are there. I am so greatful for the wonderful friends God sends my way. They truly are a blessing in my life.

*"Life without friendship is like the sky without sun. "

Well, now it is summertime and it is hot! The girls had a dance recital the end of May! They were so cute and had so much fun! I was able to take a weekend trip to Cali with my girlfriend Nichole Riley and had a blast! I got to go to downtown Disney-my girls were so jealous!
The girls and I were able to take a two week trip the first of June to North Carolina to visit my family. We had a great time! Brooklyn and Ava even got to suck the juice out of honeysuckles! Oh, what good memories to have! We were able to spend alot of time with cousins and aunts and grandparents which was so fun and much needed! Brooklyn unfortunately is just like me at her age and got eaten by mosquitoes! We counted over 30 bites all over her little body! Ava didn't even get one! The day before our scheduled leave, Brooklyn had a breakdown and said she is done being in North Carolina and wants to go home and see her Daddy, toys, and friends. Perfect timing! All in all we had a wonderful trip.

This whole blog thing is kinda complicated. Hopefully I can figure it out since I cant get my friend lyndsey to come help me out! :) I cant believe it is already April. I didnt play any jokes on Braydon like I always plan. But maybe next year! So I cut my hair off many inches the very end of December but it grew too fast and so I cut it even shorter this time and it looks alot better! (I am sure you all care!) We are trying to plan our family vacation this year. I want Disneyland and Braydon wants Hawaii. He said this shouldnt be a hard decision, but it is! St. George is great! Braydon is still killing those bugs! I am getting a little baby hungry but we are going to put that off for a little while longer till we build! Girls are doing great! they have bbeen doing dance and gymnastics. Luckily they are done with gymnastics so it is down to one. Brooklyn goes to preschool two days a week and she loves it! (A great dvd if your child is having a hard time with recognizing letters and letter sounds is "the Letter Factory" by Leapfrog!) That is all I can think of at the moment.
