Shout out to Eric

I wanted to give a little shout out to Eric. He works so hard and does so much for us. I know that his work schedule right now is not conducive to family life and he is missing out on things with the boys. But I want him to know how much we love him and are grateful that he has a job and that he is a worthy proesthood holder. He fufills his callings and does what he needs to do. I don't tell him nearly enough how much I love him and appreciate him. He is my rock and my best friend. I love you babe and I know that you are doing what you need to be doing to take care of us. We love you!!

Finally Pictures

Well we finally got some pictures this week. Yeah!! On Monday we took the boys to the Draper Temple Open House. It was so neat to watch their faces as we walked through. They were quiet and in awe of all there was. Alex was quiet because Aunt Cheri was holding him. Thanks Cheri. I asked Andrew how he felt and he said that he felt good there. I told him it was the Spirit letting him know he was in the right place. If you get a chance I definitely recommend taking your families.We did not get any pictures from the Temple but it was a great way to start our week.
Other exciting news- we got a new bed!!! Alex's bed was broken over the weekend and we were going to buy him a bed but then thought,"We need a bed so why not spend the money on our bed and pass the beds down." So that is what we did. We found a good deal on a bed and brought it home yesterday. It is not as soft as I thought but I did not wake up with a backache so I figure that is good.

Andrew is taking a basketball fundamental skills course. He loves it and the fact that he has Shaq basketball shoes. He swears he can jump higher with them on.

Another Week of No pIctures

Once again, this week was a no picture week. Nothing to exciting to capture on film. Here are a few highlights:
Monday-school, work and more school
Tuesday-lunch with Eric and a little shopping
Wednesday-babysat my niece 
Thursday-Andrew started basketball. Loved it and thought he could jump higher with his new Shaq basketball shoes
Friday-Woke up at 2 am with a toothache. Had a root canal at 1:30 and ended the night with major headache. Not a good day
Saturday- Went and looked at Clayton and Kristi's house, went to the Temple and then took the kids to Kangaroo Zoo for Ty Ty's bday
Sunday-Went to Church. Alex did not have to go out once ( thank you grandma and grandpa for being there to help), Alex went to last hour of primary all by himself. had family over for dinner

Cute Alex saying of the week. Conversation with his Aunt Cheri
Alex: Where does my daddy live?
Cheri: He lives right here with you in your house
Alex: No my daddy lives at the Church.
Sweet Alex is a daddy's boy and always wants to know where Daddy is. The answer is usually at work or church.

Week In Review

This week has been a little hectic but I don't have any pictures to share. Here are a few highlights of the week:
The boys went back to school (yeah)
I started back to work (uughhh)
Went to 2 basketball games
Tried to clean my house(ran out of energy)
Gave up Dr Pepper (except for the one I had on Tuesday, a moment of weakness)
Tried to get up and work out but it didn't happen (tomorrow I will, I promise)
Boys had a primary activity. Alex would not leave my hip the whole time.
Joshy went to a fun birthday party at Kangaroo Zoo
Went to Costco and spent to much
Only had to take Alex out of Sacrament 2 times (3 if you count the one before Church even started)
Spent the last hour and half of Church trying to convince Alex that Sunbeams is cool (no bribe was good enough not even candy)
Finally got to sit through last 20 minutes of Relief Society without Alex. He finally went. Yeah! 20 minutes is a start. It may be a long year in Sunbeams
Had a Visiting Teaching Meeting. Planned our Visiting Teaching Conference
Had a dry roast because I forgot to turn on the crock pot and decided to cook it in the oven. I give up, the last few times I have made roast it has been dry.
Went to Cheri and Marks for yummy pie and even better company.

That is our week in review. Now I am going to go to bed so that I can drag myself out in the morning to work out. I know I will feel so much better if I just do it.

Christmas, Eric's Bday and New Years

We had a great Christmas! I used the video camera this yar so I don't have any still shots. The boys were so happy with what they got. Although Santa could have just brought Alex candy and nothing else and he would have been content. I think all of his candy was gone by afternoon.
Christmas Eve was spent with Eric's sisters and their families. We had a fun time and of course we had to open a few gifts from cousins (grandpa wasn't there to tell us no:)). Andrew did not go to sleep until about 1 am on Christmas, that boyy has a hard time sleeping. My parents came uup for Christmas and both my mom and I were up early waiting for the boys to wake up!. Josh finally woke up but 7:30 so we woke everyone else up. My brothers came over for Christmas dinner and a good time was had
Eric's birthday is New Years Eve so we have to celebrate. Unfortunately he had to work until 8:00 pm so we didn't do much. He was not very happy about that. He wanted a lemon meringue pie for his birthday.I attempted one last year but it did not turn out so well. He wanted his mom's pie. So I called and talked to her and got some tips ad tried again. was quite poud of myself and the way it turned out, so I ttok a picture of it. He was happy with and thanks to his mom I was able to make it right this year. We also had to have a chocolate cake for the boys.
It has been busy but fun in our house for the last few weeks. We love spending time with family and missed Eric's family this year. We look forward to seeing grandma and grandpa in a few weeks.

Eric blowing out his candles all 42 of them. The boys got a little carried away putting the candles on so Eric is much older then he should be but of course he blew them all out in one breath!
